Aggressive, physical, and brave, Jake Owens is a small town football hero turned big city cop who passes his time with meaningless encounters believing he can’t have who he really wants: Nate Richardson, his best friend since before forever. Thoughtful, quiet, and kind, Nate is a brilliant doctor who has always known who he is and has never been able to shake his crush on loyal, courageous, straight Jake.

After a passionate night together, Nate realizes Jake isn’t as straight as he assumed, but he worries that what they shared was a fluke, a result of too much closeness for too long. For Jake, the question isn’t how they ended up in bed together because he has always known that Nate holds his heart, it’s how he’ll convince Nate that he wants and needs to stay there.

Review of book:
When I was first introduced to Jake and Nate in He Completes Me, I found myself intrigued by their apparent, but complicated, chemistry.  I looked forward to uncovering their back-story and figuring out what made these two very different men tick. I’d expected that there would be some angst of some sort – there's two guys who have literally grown up together – and yet I really didn't find much.  Neither thought the other was interested in anything beyond a brother type relationship, but man, the level of joy when Nate and Jake revealed the true nature of their feelings for one another was nothing short of amazing.

Really, this book is a true blue ode to the old fashioned love story.  The guys know that the relationship is a sure thing, but still never ceased wooing one another.  That's what I think loved most about the piece.  Even while they were growing up, Nate an Jake took care of one another. so it wasn't farfetched at all that they'd find themselves two halves of a whole.  In addition, there was a healthy helping of hotter than hell sex that practically scorched my ipad on the spot. Still, the plot was so solidly constructed, that the story would have been perfectly fine even without the bed play.

I thoroughly enjoyed Where He Ends And I Begin, and would recommend it to anyone who's a romantic at heart.  The gender of the pairing is incidental, which in my mind is how a good story should be.  Love is precious in all of its forms, and this book is a joyful celebration that I was lucky to be a witness to.
