“At this point, I’m starting to think that if I don’t feel something for someone soon, that the notion of sparks will go the way of the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus.”
David Taylor just wants to belong. After a childhood of being the perfect son in an attempt to receive the acceptance he so craved, he has finally started living the life he wants. Maybe that means dating men as well as women. Maybe it even means exploring something a little outside the norm, but that fills him with a comfort and completeness he never thought possible.
“I like casual, no-strings sex as much as any man. But in those rare moments when I actually allow myself to wish, I will acknowledge that it might be nice to have a man to come home to.”
Arthur Yuen loves men and has a merit badge in flirting to prove it. He also has a big mouth, as evidenced by him calling an adorable stranger “puppy” while at work one day. Who knew his slip would set off a chain of events that brings the two men together in a way neither would have imagined possible?
As Dave and Arthur explore a relationship that includes puppy play, they learn as much about themselves as they do each other. The two men discover a companionship that seems to be a perfect fit until tragedy strikes, and it will take every scrap of determination and understanding to keep their relationship going.
