Ricky loves his job as a radiology tech. While he enjoys working with patients, the highlight of his day used to be when Tanner would bring a patient into the hospital. Although the nurse’s flirting was sometimes over the top, Ricky found himself growing attracted to the man. So
when he learns that Tanner has taken a full-time job at the hospital, Ricky is excited…until he realizes that Tanner is a shell of the man he used to be. Ricky vows that no matter what he has to do, he will bring Tanner out of his depression. Will Ricky be able to make Tanner want to embrace life again? Or will Ricky lose the nurse to his own inner demons?
This was a sweet, easy read with amazing characters. Ricky is an adorable dork that has a tendency of rambling and occasionally putting his foot in his mouth. He is completely devoted to his family which including himself is eight siblings. Watching the dynamic between them all was a blast. Tanner is pretty laid back, taking everything in stride, when it comes to other's that is. When it comes to himself though, he has a tendency of over analyzing. Ben is Ricky’s
room-mate, best friend, and mother hen. He added a lot of humor to the story and I’m hopeful that we’ll be reading about him next, if the foreshadowing is anything to go by than we will. The connection between Tanner and Ricky is done very well.
What isn’t done well is the angst of the story. Everything was pacing along steadily and I was completely feeling the story until close to the end when the drama begins to unfold. It felt rather rushed, with no actual resolve to the problems. It was literally blink your eyes and you miss it. Despite this though, I still liked the story and I think most readers will.
