Rookie cop Bobby McAlister doesn't belong in Tommy's harsh world, but Tommy can't push him out. As their unlikely friendship turns into a tentative relationship, they weather the daily storm of Tommy's life with a lot of laughs and more than a few arguments.
Skip thought he had it all: the fabulous husband, the great apartment, and the teaching job he'd always wanted. Even the cat was perfect. When his partner of eight years decides he wants something else-something that doesn't involve Skip or the apartment or even the cat-Skip decides it's time to go home to the other side of the country. However, Skip's hometown doesn't just hold a loving meddling mother but also the memories of his awkward crush on a boy he met his senior year in high school.
