With the odds stacked against them, will they be able to overcome, or will their pasts push them apart, forever?
Gib clings to family, while being afraid to trust them. As a former foster child, he clings to security denied to him in early childhood. When he begins having feelings for one of his best friends and fellow medical school student, all his issues are expanded.
Allen has everything a kid from a wealthy New York family could have. When he decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Harvard trained doctor, he didn’t anticipate meeting and falling for the enigmatic Gibson Ridley.
With Allen’s daddy issues, and Gib’s fear of intimacy, the stakes couldn’t have greater risks. Can these two men work through their issues and give love a chance, or will they lose it forever?

Allen has a father who only cares about himself and is an ass, he's also a doctor and has high expectations for his son to follow in his footsteps. Allen is very smart and comes from a rich background, very different to how Gib grew up.
Once Gib and Allen meet, along with Allen's friends Fiona and Alexi they all form a friendship bond that will see them through many ups and downs. But as Allen's feelings for Gib grow and Gib fights his feelings because he is afraid, something has to give.
Oh man, Allen wore his heart on his sleeve and was all in when it came to a relationship with Gib, but Gib continually held back and I was so sad for Allen every time he pulled away. When things were good they were great, but Gib has never dealt with his feelings of being abandoned and not enough and this causes its own issues in their relationship. Thank goodness their friends and Gib's foster siblings are there to talk some sense into him.
There is a traumatic event in the last part of the book that had me in tears and leads to more changes for Allen and Gib, but by this time they are solid in their relationship.
There are some important topics raised in the book, sexual misconduct allegations, abuse of power & homophobia are the main ones and though they caused issues and me some angst for what they had to deal with, they were handled well.
The book spans quite a few years, so you really get to experience their journey as they both grow and change and make life decisions, both big and small. It has a HEA which I am so glad about because there were times I wasn't sure if they'd make it and I don't need that negativity in my reading, I need my romance books to have HEAs.
We follow our author learning about Allan who comes from a wealthy family and wants to follow in his Dad’s footsteps but not with Dad who is not a nurturing parent….Gib on the other hand has had a life of trauma. Losing his parents, being adopted and having 2 siblings he considered his siblings and losing that, has made him very wary and untrusting of anyone in his life. Allan has always thought Gib was strait and now has learned maybe not……..
The foursome that they have created thru medical school is the only family these two men count on. Then it’s time to graduate and plans have to be made. Allan and Gib struggle along with the reader to learn more about each other as Allan has fallen for Gib and is al in….Gib has shown he is Not really strait.
I can’t say my heart didn’t hurt through a good portion of his book. Gib was so entangled in his past hurt, I didn’t think he would be able to let go, as what had occurred was very difficult for anyone to face.. Allan was stunning in his love and patience….
I cannot say enough about this story….The author did a wonderful job….Oh did I say tissues a must!!! Oh and Book #2 in Series Family Home up for Pre Order
