Police Officer Ben Jenkins responds to a call of possible intruders in an older man’s apartment. After finding the source of the noise prompting the call to the police, Ben is in the process of leaving when he meets Reece Withers, a bike messenger and photographer who lives in the top floor apartment. Days later, they meet again when Ben crushes Reece’s bike with his police car, and thus begins their relationship.

Witness is a wonderful romantic comedy. The storyline is set in Seattle, illustrating the daily lives of Ben and Reece. The interaction between characters is amusing. There are numerous emotional moments, as well as countless lovemaking scenes exhibited. Ben is shy upon first meeting. He is respectful to people, as well as humble when others commend actions that Ben considers part of his duty. Ben loves to cook, especially for Reece who loves to eat. Reece has a naturally humorous personality. However, he fears he is not worthy of the love he receives from Ben. Haunted by the past, Reece lacks the motivation to obtain his goals until he is encouraged by Ben to strive for it. Both men are passionate lovers, in addition to being very faithful to their relationship. Each personality compliments the other when it comes to their compatibility.

L.A. Gilbert has created an impressive, as well as exceptionally enjoyable saga.
