The day before Drew McEvoy is to fly home following a temporary work assignment in London, he trips going down the stairs to a teashop and is saved from injury by the quick thinking of Englishman, Michael Dawson. Michael sees Drew is a little shaken up by the incident, so he invites Drew to sit at his table to catch his breath and offers to buy him a cup of tea.
The chemistry is there from the word "go." Drew doesn’t know if it’s a momentary thing, or if it could turn into something more, and there’s not enough time for him to find out before he leaves. All he can do is hold onto the moment and stretch it out to the very last drop.
They leave the teashop and Michael surprises Drew by inviting him to have a drink at his flat, and then go somewhere for dinner. Drew knows the most they can have is a few hours together. This time tomorrow they’ll be thousands of miles apart. But there’s no point in him telling Michael that. After all, they’re just ships passing in the night, right?

Fun Light-hearted Read
While a short piece about a man's exciting finding of love in London, this work draws the reader into the evening these two have very well. Definitely an enjoyable piece to read when you are looking to warm up your heart as you feel for these two star-crossed lovers.
Only minor complaint is the deus ex machina ending and the somewhat cliché instances of romance, however these do not distract from the enjoyment of the work and it may very well just be a complaint I have of the genre as a whole sometimes.
