Alhazar walks into to the Navy chapel unaware he just changed the course of his life. Dylan, the chaplain, has never seen a more beautiful man. When Alhazar asks if it is ok to say his daily prayers in the chapel Dylan immediately say yes.
They strike up a friendship. It's enough at first. Both are divorced, both have children. Alhazar lives next door to his ex wife, raising their kids together. Dylan's family is further away but he is close to them.
Dylan is a few months out of an abusive relationship. The man took every bit of Dylan's soul and crushed it. He is so unsure of everything. Afraid to leave the base because he doesn't want to run into him. The man was such a master manipulator that even Dylan's mother is urging him to go back.
When they discover an interest in each other they dive into the deep end. Soon spending every moment possible together. When they run into Dylan's ex everything starts to fall apart. Alhazar doesn't see a way to repair the break. Dylan finally does what he should have done months ago. He wants Alhazar, and it's time to take control of his life back.
This was an interesting book to read. I've never read anything (or researched) the Muslim religion so Alhazar’s devotions were new to me. I liked how the author made their different religions basically a non issue. Treating both men a human beings who should be worlds apart but are instead able to set aside religious differences and be together. I thought it was a nicely done story.
