leaves Noah Strauss, darling of the modeling world, physically scarred and
emotionally damaged, he quits the runway to become a psychologist. Using his
contacts from his time in the spotlight, he creates One Call Away, a radio show
dedicated to gay men looking for love, advice or someone to talk to. But with
secrets of his own and a mother who refuses to understand the career path he’s
chosen, the one person Noah can’t seem to help is himself.
On a drunken dare from the senior partner’s grandson, Oren Leavitt calls Noah’s
radio show, pretending to be gay. Only Oren isn’t certain if he’s pretending.
He’s left his strict Orthodox Jewish upbringing behind, but the guilt remains.
Guilt that his actions have prevented his sister from finding a husband and
guilt that he’s failed his parents. Talking to “Dr. Noah” helps, and
as he finds himself calling the man again and again, he knows he must be
honest. But Oren is unsure if he’s lying to Noah or himself.
For Noah, trust is paramount; he’s been deceived in his personal and
professional life and while he desperately wants to help Oren, he also finds
himself falling for the sweet and tortured man. Oren is trapped: he risks
losing his job and more importantly the love and security of his family but
knows he can’t hide if if wants to be with Noah. When unresolved heartaches
from the past rise up to control the present, Noah and Oren discover that love
often comes from the most unexpected places, and sometimes a call for help not
only saves a life, it can be a new and beautiful beginning.
I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
