    Summary

    Benjamin is a top-rated oncologist. Mark practices family law. James is Mark's twin and Benjamin's patient.

    Sparks fly when Benjamin and Mark meet, but their attraction is impeded by their concern for professionalism. Yet Benjamin can't deny his overwhelming desire to be one of the things that Mark cares for so selflessly. And Mark is intrigued by the needy heart beneath Benjamin's aloof exterior.

    When James goes into remission, Mark and Benjamin give in to their passions. But then James' cancer returns, and Mark's firm takes out a malpractice suit. The lover's happiness is fractured by professional obligations, the loss of a career and identity, and brotherly grief.

    What holds love together when everything you are crumbles from under your feet?
