Steve Campbell's sole existence was work, but deep down he was deeply unsatisfied in his personal life. He worked tirelessly alongside his best friend, Connor Morrison, developing the countries latest and greatest in optics research. Connor, on the other hand was successful in all aspects of his life since Steve introduced him to his boyfriend, Wes. Steve has tried to find someone to love, but that is difficult when your heart already belongs to someone else and that someone is set to marry another.

While sitting in his favorite bar, he tries and fails...twice...to pick up a girl. Steve is startled when a man sits down next to him and a casual conversation begins flowing between them. Dylan isn't interested in the women, but the men are another story. He offers some pointers in the art of pick up and gently flows through topics of family and Connor. Handsome and sharply dressed, Dylan offers to help Steve get back into the swing of dating. He hands Steve his card as he leaves with an invitation to "give me a call him sometime." It is then that Steve realized that Dylan is an escort.

Steve doesn't feel he needs to pay anyone to spend time with him, but he feels drawn to Dylan and gives in. Dinner and drinks the following night brings the two to the topic of Steve's wardrobe, or lack of it. The men schedule more time together to work on Steve's appearance, but that is not the only thing changing.

This story has such an element of truth to it. I could sense Steve's frustrations on so many levels...professionally, romantically, and even physically. He found help in the most unlikely of places. I enjoyed the realism of Doubtless and the compassion it stirred. We all just want to be loved and accepted.
