Dillon McDowell, an infectious disease specialist, jumps at the opportunity to work with Doctors Without Borders in Liberia. But when he arrives, things are very different than he expected, and he’s out of his depth. Will Scarlet takes him under his wing and helps him adjust. A hint of normalcy comes when a group of local boys invite Dillon to play soccer.
Will’s family rejected him for being gay, and he’s closed off his heart. Even though meeting Dillon opens him to the possibility of love, he’s wary. They come from different worlds, and Will plans to volunteer for another stint overseas. But Will realizes what Dillon means to him when Dillon becomes ill, and they can no longer deny their feelings.
When Dillon’s soccer friends lose their parents and aunt to disease, Will and Dillon must work together to ensure that the boys aren’t cast adrift in a society that’s afraid they might be contagious. They must also decide if their feelings are real or just the result of proximity and hardship.
*Sequel to A Heart Without Borders
Nobody writes like Andrew Grey. I pick up one of his books and start reading, and I can’t put it down. This one definitely was one of those books. I really enjoyed this book.
Dillon was very arrogant but a very good infectious disease doctor. Will was always working for Doctors without Borders and traveling a lot. The two of them were perfect for each other I thought. The relationship worked for me. They were both trying so hard to make a difference in the world. My heart just broke for the three boys Dillon was so fond of.
This was a very realistic story that was written very well. It had a good storyline. I can’t wait to read more in this series.
