Surviving the machinations of a madman, FBI Agent Arthur Turner knows he barely made it, his partner wasn’t so lucky. His leg’s been badly injured and once it heals Arthur faces intense physical therapy. Nevertheless he’s happy to be alive.
While convalescing at home Arthur yet again regrets his decision to push ex-boyfriend Patrick Edwards away because he was afraid it would affect his advancement at the Bureau. Dumbfounded, Arthur can’t believe his eyes when Patrick shows up at his door demanding to be let back into his life. Seems Patrick was biding his time and now he’s cashing in on Arthur’s weakened condition.
The idea of being together again works for Arthur and Patrick though not so much for Addison Stark, a computer nerd with the Bureau. Being fought over is something that Arthur is not interested in on any level. Too bad Addie has other ideas.
Reunited lovers are determined to make it work the second time around. Testing Arthur showcases characters who feel their way around the landmines of the past to find love once more. Though their romance is genuine the rest of the story holds little to no surprises. Even the climax is quickly resolved with little fanfare. The two heroes and their love rings true in Testing Arthur. However, the protagonist falls flat this time out.
