Never judge a book by its cover.
Michael Campbell can’t hold a job for more than a few days. He’s
lucky his foreman is giving him another chance with the solar panel
project at an elementary school in Atlantic City. When he spies a man
walking strangely in front of the school, Michael laughs, assuming he’s
drunk or high. Little does he realize that Joshua Stone, a teaching
assistant, has cerebral palsy, and he’s having a bad muscle control day.
Taking a tumble right in front of the handsome construction worker is
just his luck.
When Michael learns the truth, he feels bad for his cruel behavior.
He offers to give Joshua—and his tricycle, the Racing Rhonda—a lift.
Joshua accepts the help, and suddenly there’s a gorgeous man breezing
into his life, turning his world upside down. But Michael has more
issues than his inability to hold down a job, and neither man is sure if
they’ll be able to overcome their fears in order to be together.
