I’m going to give you the line from the books I’ve read that make my mind crave the rest like chocolate & Coke.
Zane’s head fit beneath Eli’s chin same as it always had. His arms went around Elu as if they’d been made just the right length, for just that purpose. “Don’t you do that again,” he said, muffled by emotion and Eli’s skin. “That’s all I’m asking for. Don’t you go where I can’t follow.”

Eli’s still not great at wearing his heart on his sleeve and Zane’s still got trust issues, but they manage just fine. It’s all good. Right?
Yes and no. When the doctors find themselves grounded between trips for Medicins Sans Frontieres, things begin to change. Zane’s making plans for where they’ll go next, but homesick Eli discovers the opportunity to open a clinic of his own in his old neighborhood. He’d have thought Zane would be all over that, but Zane’s not listening. Meanwhile, there’s trouble in paradise between protégés Taye and Richie, and Eli’s ex-wife Marybeth has come back to town, bringing a heaping helping of hassle with her. Eli figures it’s no wonder he’s been having a heck of a time with chest pain—which he hasn’t told anyone about.
There’s something to be said for setting the story straight, it’s true. Eli knows he and Zane have a good thing going even if keeping it that way is the hardest—and best—part.
