Her new neighbor Ryan Kinsmore is a hunk ten years her junior, but both are attracted to one another at first sight. As she makes covert overtures, Sara wonders if her kind neighbor is gay or is too polite to tell her she is too old for intimacy with him. The truth is that Ryan desires her as much as she does him, but refuses to touch her. He fears that once she learns the truth that he is not a model as he told her, but instead works as an escort, a euphemism in his case for male prostitute that will destroy their friendship let alone any romance.

Readers will feel the sexual tension shooting between the lead couple, but also understand that Ryan cannot allow anything to happen between them because of his job. It is interesting the way the two protagonists have a common subplot and distinct separate subplots that all blend together into a powerful character driven story. Whereas Sara is more typical of the genre, Ryan is a unique player who must find a way to rise once he falls from grace when his beloved learns the truth.
