Book Five of the “One and One” series:
The One That Gave
Unofficially questioning someone who might have information associated with a legal case isn’t the best way to meet a potential date. In fact, it’s not the way Troy Bernay ever expected to, but male nurse Lex Harrington is… interesting. Too much so when Lex’s involvement with the aftermath of an accident caused by the son of one of Troy’s clients might create a conflict of interest.
Lex hasn’t had the best of luck with men. In fact, he’s had such bad luck that he’s given up on finding someone to spend more than a week or two with. His work hours are just too ‘inconvenient’ for most guys. That doesn’t stop him from wishing, of course, and Troy Bernay seems just about perfect for a fun, no-drama good time. Except for a pesky police investigation into the most recent multiple vehicle accident, of course, and needing to stay away from lawyers, cops, and the media if he wants to keep his job.
Running into each other unexpectedly at a party has both Troy and Lex wondering whether there’s a way to have their cake and eat it, too, but even in the best case scenario, something’s got to give.

It’s the first of many obstacles that Vincent teaches Travis to overcome, and Travis wants nothing more desperately than to believe in the love he feels building inside. Still, the doubts instilled by harsh experience are difficult to put aside. Can Vincent convince Travis that the time is truly right to break free?
