Just Add Argyle by K.C. Burn
Most people think EMT Jaime Escobar is a player, but the truth is he wants a serious partner—he just can’t justify wasting time on guys he knows aren’t a match. But when he treats a gorgeous redhead after a fight, he finds the spark he’s spent so many years looking for.
Jaime wants to take the next step with Tate, but it’s clear Tate’s not going to curb his impulsive behavior—his next fight sends him to the hospital. Jaime’s relationship with a near criminal isn’t something his family is ready to accept, not any more than Tate is willing to be kept a secret. Jaime will need a lot of understanding—and some luck of his own—to keep them both. But this is one fight he’s going to see through to the end.
Sweet and heartbreaking
Tate has it hard in life. He finds himself more then once in a fight. His home-situation is horrible, neglected by his mother, losing more than once his job so no money to buy any food or clothes. His self esteem is lower than low....His sanctuary is the library....
Jaime is an ex-soldier and now an EMT employer and sees Tate for the first time after he has been hurt in a fight and need some medical help. Tate was helping a boy who almost got raped.
Jaime can't get Tate out if his head and he tries to connect with him. That is not easy because Tate has no mobile. When he can connect with the boy who was saved by Tate this boy wants to help Jaime.
Finally they meet again. But Tate is suspicious about Jaime's intentions.
Moreover they are so different from each other this will never work...
After another fight Tate landed badly hurt in a hospital...
Jaime takes over the lead.
A sweet and heartbreaking story I enjoyed.
The personalities were not very much developed in this story. It felt like Tate was depending on Jaime. They were not equal.
Their backgrounds were a bit vague. I missed some depth.
The way of writing was good and with a good flow.
Overall is was a nice read I enjoyed.
