I liked the decision of the author to not have James being one of Michael's patients. James is disabled, on a wheelchair after a bad case of polio when he was still a child, but he has found his own path in the world, albeith a lonely one. James is single, and gay, but he has never had a serious relationship in his life, to the level he is a virgin to sex, if not to feelings. When Michael expresses his interest in James, James is not able to understand how a good looking boy like Michael can be interested in an average man like James. Probably Michael's work allows him to see beyond James's disability, not denying the fact that, in ordinary circumstances, another guy would have taken into consideration the trouble of being in a relationship with James, but to Michael makes no difference. Never once he weighted the odds with the goods, for Michael it was always plain good.
Despite the matter, this novel was always more romance than drama, it was sweet, sexy and very romantic, a joy to read.
