I couldn’t put this story down. The characters were richly developed, and the story was well thought out and enjoyable. Michael is a sex surrogate and nurse, and once I understood his motivations and heard his thoughts, I was in love with him. He was extremely generous down to his core. He saw people for the wonderful and amazing beings that they were and didn’t pass judgment on them.
James was an author and, as an avid reader, I loved getting a glimpse behind the scenes of that world. Although his personality was prickly, down deep he was a good person who just desperately needed to move on from his past. Michael and James formed an interesting partnership, and I really thought they worked well together.
There were only a few steamy scenes, but they were utter perfection. The reason behind everything that happened to James made so much sense and solidified the entire story. Although this is the third in the series, the stories are only loosely related. However, the first two were also great stories, and I highly recommend them.

Everyone admires Michael Lamont for being a nurse, but his part-time work as a gay sex surrogate not only raises eyebrows, it’s cost him relationships. Michael is small, beautiful, and dedicated to working with people who need him. But what he really wants is a love of his own. He spends most of his time reading science fiction, especially books written by his favorite author and long-time crush, the mysteriously reclusive J.C. Guise.
James Gallway’s life is slowly but inexorably sliding downhill. He wrote a best-selling science fiction novel at the tender age of eighteen, while bedridden with complications of polio. But by twenty-eight, he’s lost his inspiration and his will to live. His sales from his J.C. Guise books have been in decline for years. Wheelchair bound, James has isolated himself, convinced he is unlovable. When he is forced to do a book signing and meets Michael Lamont, he can’t believe a guy who looks like Michael could be interested in a man like him.
Michael and James are made for each other. But they must let go of stubbornness to see that life finds a way and love has no limitations.
