Rock co-owns a gym with Dick, and is the oldest of a trio of lovers, all former marines.
Rig is the next in age and is a Physician’s Assistant. He loves what he does and his practice is going well, but he has not been feeling well for a long time and is afraid to tell his lovers.
Dick spends less time at the gym he owns with Rock and more time going to college. He is the youngest and the most easy going of the trio, as well as the peacemaker of the group.
When Rig keeps losing weight and seems to be getting sicker and sicker, Rock and Dick are at a loss as to what to do. They can tell he is not feeling well, is not keeping food down, and is rapidly losing weight, but he just keeps brushing them off when they ask him about it. In trying to help him get better, they all go on a vacation to Las Vegas, but instead of making Rig feel better, he just seems to get worse. Terrified that he has cancer as his mother did, Rig finally goes to one of his colleagues for help and they begin running tests to try and isolate what is wrong with him. Finally in desperation, Rig and his doctor decide he must go to San Diego to have some further testing done. However, instead of telling his two lovers anything, he tells them he is taking the trip alone and works hard to convince them it is nothing to be concerned about. But when one of Rig’s nephews calls and spills the beans, Rock just about loses it, and while Dick does his best to calm him, neither knows what they will do if something happens to Rig. What will they do if the man they love has an incurable disease, and they could lose him?
Mr. Michael has done it again! He has penned a tale of amazing romantic love between three guys. I loved reading about the dynamic and loving relationship between these three men. The love scenes are so erotic they fairly scorch the pages. I found myself staying up late into the night just so I could keep the pages turning and find out what happened next. One of the things that I really enjoy about Mr. Michael’s writing is that it is real. The fact that the romance is between three men, and not a traditional one, makes absolutely no difference in getting the feeling of the power of true love across. This story really plays into the theme of for better or for worse, and in sickness and in health. These guys may not be able to be married in the traditional sense, but their love is every bit as powerful and binding. A great love story that I am more than happy to recommend to readers. If you have never read gay romance before, this would be a great first book to try!
