Ethan Daniels, host of a popular conservative cable news program, has never thought of his bisexuality as a problem, even though he has never acted on his attraction to men. Since his divorce, his desire has become more acute. When he meets Charlie Woods, his daughter’s first grade teacher, they have an instant spark, but Ethan hesitates to act. His contract is up for renewal, there are already rumors swirling about him because of a brief encounter from his past, and the last thing his employers want is for one of their stars to come out publicly.
Charlie avoids romantic entanglements because he prefers living on his own terms. He keeps love and sex completely separate, never seeing anyone more than a few times. Hooking up with a closeted celebrity like Ethan seems safe from emotional involvement, even if they have to keep their fledgling relationship secret.
The last thing they expect is to fall in love, but their strong mutual attraction moves them both to make changes neither of them thought they wanted or needed.
Although Ethan knows he is bisexual, he does nothing when he finds a man attractive - that is until he met Charlie Woods, his daughters first grade teacher. He is really drawn towards Charlie, but I think due to where he works, and also worrying about what other people may think, he seems to think he has to suppress his attraction.
However, while out for a drink, or rather while out getting drunk one night, he runs into Charlie, and the two return to Ethans apartment and things get rather heated. It doesn't take long for Ethan to get cold feet again, and tell Charlie he can't see him again.
Although he was the one to stop everything, Ethan is feeling unsettled, upset and not sure of anything now. Charlie is also devastated, something I don't think he has felt before. Both realise that their feelings run deep, but Ethan feels that he really can't act on them.
Can Ethan ever get the courage to admit publicly he is bisexual? Will Charlie wait for him - however long it is? Does Ethan admit things to his ex-wife and daughter? ...... read and find out!!
I have to say, although I thoroughly disliked Ethan to begin with, as I read and realised the outside pressure put on him I could understand him more. It was like he had no control over what he did with his life, that he had to make sure he was socially acceptable to everyone - even if this meant he could not live the life he wanted and needed.
