Blurb: Tyler really needs the advertised nursing job after the recent break-up left him with nothing more than a bag of clothes and his car. To his surprise, the child he thought he would be caring for turns out to be a fully-grown, angry, young man who appears to be busy feeling sorry for himself.
Jason is more than fed up at his mother’s attempts to coddle him while he is fighting his own demons. When the new nurse appears, he tries to send him packing straight away. He doesn’t need or want anyone’s help.
The two strike a deal to help them with their situation, working together to try to piece back their broken lives and find a way to move forward.
Overcoming their differences and finding common ground isn’t easy at first, but Tyler is convinced he can prove to Jason that there is so much more to look forward to. A little trust and honesty can go a long way into helping both of them heal and show that sometimes it takes just a gentle push to make big things happen.

Review: Novellas are typically not my favorite type of read because I’m usually left wanting more. That’s not the case with this book. Ms. Leya did a great job of writing a complete story in a short package.
Jason is struggling with life. He is suffering from PTSD, not only from being in the military but losing the love of his life and his life altering accident. He hasn’t completely given up the will to live but he is depressed. His fear of failure is stopping him from doing much of anything.
Enter Tyler. He is also struggling with life and this job is his last-ditch effort to try to get his life back on track. He’s a bit depressed after a failed relationship. He’s never lived outside California and the Texas town is quite a change for him. His tough love approach to Jason’s recovery is exactly what Jason needs to kick-start him into action.
Their chemistry is slow to build and they keep their attraction for each other hidden afraid to ruin their new nurse/patient relationship. The slow build makes their coupling even sweeter and as they get to know each other, their love appears to be genuine.
The writing was good as always with Ms. Leya. The secondary characters appear very briefly but are good just the same. Overall, another great E.M. story!
