Finding that special someone to love can be tricky, even more so in certain circumstances. This was a wonderful story of such a search for that right person to share a life with.
Robert desperately needs to hire a personal assistant and he has found one that he likes but is hesitant to hire. He is drawn to the young man, but Robert is gay. He fears a future sexual harassment problem if he can’t control his desires. Yet, determined that he can, he decides to give Lee a chance.
Lee has been working hard to improve his life from its hard beginnings. He has wanted to thank Rob for something he had done to help Lee a few years ago. An opportunity to do so comes up and he applies for a job he isn’t qualified for, with the hope that he can both finally thank Rob and possibly get the job.
This was a story of people daring to take a chance at helping someone and at trusting their heart. I loved the characterizations, the emotional depths to both Robert and Lee, and their struggles with internal and external conflicts. I was pulling for them both and hoping they could find their well-deserved happiness.
