If Peter Christopoulos has learned one thing from his last three years in a wheelchair, it’s that people have a hard time seeing past the hardware. When he asks out Russ Baker after giving him a quote on equipment for a new Greek restaurant, he’s disappointed but not surprised to be turned down.
Russ has been covering for his abusive boyfriend for so long it’s almost automatic, but with a little help from his friends, he finds the courage to break it off. To his surprise, Peter is still interested, and soon they’re falling hard and fast. But then their world is thrown into turmoil: Peter finds an old letter indicating he has a half sister he's never met, and Russ's past interferes when his ex makes it clear he'll do anything to get him back.

I did like it, but I wanted more. Of what? I am not sure. Maybe of Peter and Russ getting to know each other without Barry always being brought up?
Two plot points disappointed me a little: we never really found out what happened with Barry. Did he stop stalking Russ or did he continue?
The other thing I wasn't wowed with was Peter's story line involving his long lost half-sister. It would have been fine if he had just set our to find her, but when she is found...and when her connection to another key person in the story is revealed, it seemed a little beyond belief. Granted, this is fiction, so not everything has to be realistic, but this seemed little too coincidental.
