The first scene of my upcoming m/m romance…

Nate has been a single dad raising his baby ever since his wife left them three months ago. An is the gay pediatrician who lives three doors down in Nate’s new apartment building. Neither of them are looking for love, but that doesn’t mean that love–and family–won’t find them anyway.
