Will Nash find love again? Of course he will. Will he go about it in the usual manner? Now that’s another story entirely.
Jilted by his fiancé two weeks before their wedding, Nash Marino’s outlook on life in general, and love in particular, is jaded. After months of couch-surfing, Nash is fed up. He’s sick and tired of his living conditions, worn out by the demands of his nursing job, and despairs of ever finding love again. In fact, he doesn’t think he’s capable of true love. Monogamy, commitment, companionship, and regular sex…that’s all he wants, and the sooner, the better.
When Nash crosses paths with a like-minded man who’s also in need of a live-in nurse for a beloved relative, Nash figures all his problems are solved. Matters are complicated by a freak accident and amnesia. When Nash’s marriage of convenience scheme is muddied by notions of love after his memory reboot, will their plans go awry, or will Nash’s new outlook on life be just what the doctor ordered?

When he turned, he saw Emmitt had been staring at his ass. Only it wasn’t Nash’s ass anymore and Emmitt hastily averted his eyes, then cleared his throat and held out an arm to assist Nash into the tub.
His professional mask once again in place, Emmitt guided Nash into the tub. Just as well Nash had washed his hand, after all, since he was using it to grip Emmitt’s forearm, treating the man like a handicap railing. The water in the bath was nicely warm, although not particularly full so his arm wouldn’t hang into the heated water. The tub itself perfectly molded for him to lean back and rest his head on the towel Emmitt had placed in just the right spot to double as a pillow.
“Thank you.” Nash sighed and smiled at Emmitt. Between the pills kicking in and the soothing caress of the water, he didn’t even have to force the smile. “I’m really grateful for everything you’re doing for me. I realize we’re engaged, and we’ve got a history together, so I know it’s not really as bizarre as it feels to have you taking care of me like this.”
Emmitt nodded. “You’ve got an intellectual versus emotional battle going on right now. And I fully appreciate what you must be feeling sorting through your emotions about your former fiancé. It’s understandable.”
Sam is the past. Emmitt is the present and the future.
“And you must be a saint, or…” Nash grinned at the thought. “You’re very secure about how we feel about one another and know you don’t have anything to worry about.”
Emmitt’s blush was appealing. Nash had noticed it a few times since he’d woken up in post-op, but didn’t remember ever seeing the man pink up like that when their relationship had been strictly professional. Yeah, Emmitt’s charm wasn’t overt, but it certainly existed and Nash found himself drawn to the man. Not sexually, although that could be due to his current physical condition and drugged state. That had to be it. He wouldn’t get himself engaged to a man he wasn’t attracted to, for Christ’s sake.
“I don’t think I’m guilty of either. I’m pragmatic, and…”
Nash lifted a brow. “And?”
“I feel anything but secure. I’m afraid I’ll lose you, and that scares the hell out of me. I can’t decide how much I should tell you or what I should wait and let you remember in your own time, or just say to hell with it, and let things play out.”
How much did Nash want to know? He’d been told various things he needed to know for practical purposes. Relationship stuff, though… wouldn’t it be better to let that take its own course? He kept telling himself his memory would return, but it was beginning to feel like he was trying to convince himself of that fact more than he truly believed it. If his memory never returned, wouldn’t it be better to allow himself to naturally fall in love all over, rather than have details of their past spoon-fed to him?
