The standalone first book in the Men of Rapture series.
Rush Kaplan likes his women wet, his alcohol straight, and his drugs any way he can get them. He parties all night and sleeps ’til noon, only to wash, rinse, and repeat the next day. He flies as close to the sun as he dares, praying he’ll one day get burned.
With his past haunting his every waking minute, he can no longer enjoy life’s natural highs, so he instead settles for the manufactured kind. But the emptiness is always there, lingering on the edges of his psyche and threatening to swallow him whole.
All he wants is to feel alive.
Six months after graduating from veterinary school, Alyssa Cole feels like she’s making a difference. Her clinic is located in a working-class neighborhood, and she’s enacted a sliding pay scale to make her services more affordable.
When she comes in early one morning to treat a sick pup, she finds a man covered in blood and passed out on the floor. But it just isn’t any man. It’s the same one she spied in the alley behind her clinic only a week earlier.
And he wasn’t alone.
With the memory from that day still fresh, will the good doctor call the police and have him arrested for breaking and entering, or can she be the cure for what ails him instead?
