Overview

Intro: Kenton Weston is living the dream. He is a very well respected member of the Philadelphia medical society, a transplant surgeon, and young. What Kenton does not have is someone with whom to share his life. Kenton is gay and knows that “coming out” could hurt his medical career, but if he ever hopes to have a meaningful relationship he may have to take a chance. When Kenton meets the father of a patient, he thinks he has met the man of his dreams; that is, until he falls in love with the man’s son. Excerpt: If there was one thing that was missing in the life of Kenton Weston, it was someone special with whom to share his life. He had placed his outside interests on hold for so long that he had almost forgotten what they where. After having lived for over a decade now in Philly, Kenton had seen very little of this city which was so rich in history. Kenton knew that education extended far beyond the classroom and as well beyond the confines of the hospital, and had promised himself that he would take full advantage of this extracurricular education. Thus far, however, he had not. He had yet to visit Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was signed, the Liberty Bell, as well as the many other historic sites which claimed Philadelphia as their home such as the homes of Edgar Allan Poe and Betsy Ross. Art museums had long been a favorite of Kenton, and he had allowed himself one day years ago the luxury of discovering the many treasures found in the Philadelphia Museum of Art which features the steps made famous in the movie Rocky. Concerned for his social life or lack thereof, many of Kenton’s former fellow students and now colleagues had offered to “fix him up” with a special woman they knew. What they didn’t know, and what he Kenton had chosen never to divulge to any of them, was that Kenton was gay. His last relationship was with a young man during his undergraduate days at the University of Wyoming. That seemed like such a long time ago, and Kenton felt so old now. As he poured over his mountain of research cases now, Kenton made a promise to himself that this year he would allow himself to be more vulnerable and would hopefully at least find a friend, if not a friend and a lover. Kenton hadn’t been celibate since his undergraduate days, but desired a relationship rather than a casual fling. He had matured, and so had his needs. He needed a mature relationship. ****** After the door was closed, Kenton turned off the TV and sat beside Jeff. “How are you really, Jeff?” “I’m fine,” he said. “Jeff, it’s hard for me to be both physician and friend to you,” Kenton chuckled. Jeff wondered what he was really trying to say, then blurted out, “Am I no longer welcome to stay with you?” Kenton could see Jeff’s anxiety build, and he tried to get out of bed. Kenton stood up and held him down. “No, no, Jeff. You are definitely coming to stay with me. That will never be an issue.” Jeff settled back down. “You will be able to come home tomorrow morning. But I do need to know who called you last night and upset you. The nurse is required to report everything.” “You know who it was,” Jeff said. “Tell me about it, Jeff, please.” “He hates me, Kenton, and he wants my money. It kind of hurts, you know.” ****** It was a week before Jeff’s departure, and Kenton was slowly walking home from a grueling shift at the hospital. He hated to see Jeff go, he had to admit, but didn’t want to stand in his way. He walked in to find the house completely dark. He switched on the lamp by the door. He called Jeff’s name, but got no answer. A chill ran threw Kenton. Had Michael done something? Kenton ran up the stairs and into Jeff’s room. It was dark. Kenton turned on the light. Jeff was lying on top of the bed on his side staring at the wall. Kenton walked over to him. “Jeff, are you okay? Talk to me. Are you hurt?” Kenton rubbed Jeff’s face. His eyes were open. “Jeff,” he said sternly. Jeff looked at Kenton.

Meet the Author

B.K. Wright founded Beau to Beau Books in 2007 and writes gay fiction from somewhat of a sociological perspective. The books include drama, mystery/suspense, stories of gay fathers, romance, erotic romance, and short stories. Wright shares the belief of Oscar Wilde that male love is the noblest form of affection, and hopes that through these novels the message that gay men can find a significant other with whom to share their lives will be conveyed. Although some of these books are fun and light reads, others are quite serious in nature and include such topics as domestic violence and hate crimes.

    Man looking for love and finds it :-/ Really BN why do I have to give this even 1 star :-(

    Really this a no star book. You see the doctor falls madly in love with the son. K...He's a slut... sleeps with the father and then sleeps with the son after he sleeps with son the one he is mentoring. Then falls in love the a kid young enough to be his son.UgH... And if you dont think thats bad enough he wasssss the foster father to the guy he finds love with (Jeff) before he had sex with him. But, now he is the lover. If you like that kind of stuff then this is for you. As for me I simply hate it....a lot...I have to say this book cinched it for me. This is the first book I read by B K Wright. And, I admit that I love vampire, werewolf and witch stories, but, I take breaks in between and have found some great books. But, this one was devastating and I will never buy another one written by B.K Wright again. ever! Not, ever!
