Being with Robert Bauer was what Jesse McIntire wanted most in the world, but ironically, even though they were now living together, Jesse was more alone than he has ever been.  The past five months with Robert should have been the best of Jesseís life, but Robertís job kept him away from home for long periods of time.  The more Robert is away the more Jesseís insecurities take over. He knows Robert loves him, however, he feels there is something other than work that keeps Robert away.

Robert loves Jesse with all his heart and hurting him is the last thing he ever wanted to do. Nevertheless, that was exactly what he was doing every time he left for his extended business trips. 

Satisfaction is a fantastic follow-up to Passion. Robert Bauer has the man he loves, but there is something within him thatís stopping him from giving Jesse all of himself.  In Passion it was Jesseís hang ups Robert had to fight through. Now the table has turned and Jesse is trying to figure out why Robert is running from him.  The sad part is Robert didnít realize he was keeping walls up against Jesse until they started to tumble down.  The scene in the garage where Jesse and Robert were together with no barriers, figuratively and literally, was a major turning point in their relationship. It was one of the hottest scenes I have ever read.  I fell for both these guys all over again after this scene.  Readers who got a small taste of Robert from his cameo in the The Elf and Shoemaker and continued to follow him as he fell in love with Jesse in Passion will enjoy how that love continued even with its angst filled ups and downs in Satisfaction
