EMT Troy is relieved to finish a double
shift and spend a couple of days with his lover, Derek.
When he gets home, however, he finds Derek home from work at
his family’s restaurant unexpectedly early. He knows
something must be wrong.
Derek has always feared losing the love
and respect of his family, so he’s hidden his relationship
with Troy. When he finally tells his father he’s gay, his
father fires him from the family restaurant and disowns
him. Sad but grateful to not have to hide his love for Troy
any longer, Derek plans a quiet Thanksgiving dinner for the
two of them. Things won’t turn out quite the way he
Giving Thanks is a sweet
story of love, family, and what’s important in life.
Protective, caring Troy is a great character. I couldn’t
help but love Derek as well. Their relationship is strong,
sweet, and, of course, hot. Secondary characters—Derek’s
family members—are a good addition to the story. If you
like love stories about families and holidays, as I do,
you’re sure to enjoy Giving Thanks.
