I liked this story about James, a paramedic, and Calvin, a doctor. They've both been secretly admiring the other and it takes a "meddling" nurse to get Calvin to make the first move. It takes James a while to believe Calvin is really interested in him, but when he does, sparks fly. ( )

I really liked what I read. It was was well written and was really drawing me in. But I ended up giving it only 3 stars because I felt like the end was rushed and abrupt. I would have liked more. ( )

For months, paramedic James Wilson and cool, professional emergency room doctor Calvin Dane have admired each other from a distance, but busy jobs and a fear of rejection prevent the men from taking that next step. Nurse Janet, close friend and confidante of Calvin’s, is determined to see the men get together.

A grope session in the back of an ambulance and a night out at a bar soon alter both men’s lives. Though there are many doubts that things could possibly work between Calvin and James, James no longer doubts the doctor’s interest in him. They begin to open up to each other, and work through their insecurities. Their sex is sweet and intense and there are a few interesting secondary characters to liven up the story. There’s the homeless guy, Indian Jack, who is a regular at the hospital and loves root beer. There’s Matt, James’ partner, who loves talking about his sex life. There’s Janet, the “meddling” nurse, and Gladys, the nurse who should have retired ages ago.

This is a short and pleasant story that would have been more enjoyable with less sex and more emotional depth. While I didn’t mind Janet too much, I could have done without Gladys. I hate shrewish women in gay romances and believe the genre has room for well-developed and diverse female characters.

Book description
A thrill of excitement always went through paramedic James Willson whenever he transported a patient to St. Michael’s hospital, but it had nothing to do with the rush of the job. It was one of the emergency department doctors that set his heart racing—the very sexy, very aloof Calvin Dane. For months now, James has admired Calvin from afar, but has never dared act on his feelings since the doctor didn’t seem to return his interest. Then one intimate encounter in the back of his ambulance forever changes...
