For the past twenty years, Dane has taken care of his wealthy Aunt Beatrice. One rainy day, when they are out driving, Aunt Beatrice is killed in an accident. Naturally, Dane is devastated. When he returns to the large, luxurious home they once shared, he falls into a mild depression.

Lonely, he places an advertisement on Craigslist, in part to find someone to keep the house clean and take care of maintenance, and in part to keep him company, as he had kept his aunt company. The next morning, he finds Ryan at his door. He gives Ryan the job, but soon finds himself falling in love with the handsome man. But there is more to both men than meets the eye.

Can they cope with what they learn about each other? And no one should have to make the decision they are forced to face. Not without all the answers.

When Dane was twenty he left the university he was attending to temporarily stay with his Aunt Beatrice to care for her and be her companion. What was supposed to be temporary went on for twenty years until an automobile accident killed his aunt. Dane was driving, and now he lives in the home that once belonged to his aunt and that and her money all is his.

After cleaning the large house for twenty years, Dane decided he now has enough money to hire someone to do what he used to do. He went to Craigslist and advertised for a housekeeper specifying the person be gay. One day Ryan appeared for the job and even though Dane could not remember having talked to Ryan, much less invited him to come over, one look at the handsome man standing in his doorway left no question that Dane wanted him for the job.

This was a very short story and there was an element of the paranormal. Although short, the love that grows between the two men was beautiful. I can’t say much more about the book because I could easily make a mistake and give away a spoiler, so I will just say that it was a sweet story and I recommend it.
