After an accident leaves him dependent upon his best friend
to take care of him, State Trooper Dan Fletchers starts to
see his friend Deputy Sheriff Rich Taylor in a different
way. When his
dependence upon Rich thrusts them into intimate situations,
Dan is amazed and afraid by what heís feeling for his best
friend, and he especially afraid of what his feelings toward
Rich doesnít share his sexuality with many people, not even
his best friend of twelve years.
Rich has always known his feelings toward Dan went
beyond friendship, but he never let himself believe they
were feelings of love, until now.
Afraid of losing Dan, Rich tries to keep his feelings
inside, but almost losing Dan in a car accident has Rich
rethinking that decision.
A Helping Hand
is another terrific story from Shayla Kersten.
Dan and Richís fears and concerns toward the new
territory they were entering were so real and very
understandable, especially Danís.
Dan has a reputation for dating a lot of women and
breaking a few hearts, but he was not a womanizer or trying
to be a heartbreaker.
Dan was trying to find that special love and to his
shock it wasnít with a woman but with Rich.
I hated how Dan treated Rich but I understood it, he
wasnít trying to hurt his best friend, he was just afraid.
Dan never considered himself to be gay.
To add to Dan and Richís already fragile
relationship, Ms. Kersten threw in the monkey wrench of a
crazy ex-girlfriend and Jeremy, a character I loved and
adored even more than Dan and Rich.
A Helping Hand
immensely and Iím praying to the muse of Ms. Kersten that
creativity will strike again and Jeremy will be in the
center of it.
