Cameron Jackson is a gay widower struggling to cope with his growing business, a Great Dane named Deefur, and Emma, his precocious two year old daughter, on top of the grief that he's been unable to deal with from when Mark, his slightly older lover, was killed in a traffic accident a little over a year ago.

Deefur and Emma are more of a handful that any of the nannies that Cameron has found have been able to deal with and it looks like Deefur is headed to the pound until Jason, a sexy, young, gay, college student majoring in education and a pound volunteer dog walker comes on the scene. And while Cameron finds the young man to be the answers to his prayers for a domestic he wonders if it might be too good to be true.

... And whether or not he's ready to pursue the other desires that Jason awakens.

At 100 pages of well written prose, this is a lightening fast read and a fun one. It's pretty much fantasy fulfillment on a grand scale and it makes for a sweet refreshing read.

I like this author's tales but I need to ration my consumption of them. If R.J. Scott were a cook instead of an author she'd be a pastry chef and a steady diet of her work would cause diabetes in all but the stoutest constitutions. Yet in moderation, her work is wonderful and should be enjoyed for what it is.

When you're next in the mood for a literary confection, you could do a lot worse than this book. And if you're torn between this and a Mario Puzo novel, do yourself a favor and leave the gun, take the canolli that is Deefur Dog.
