Veterinarian Dae Anderson is attempting to move on with his life, after an awful final breakup with his boyfriend, Jack. Dae has problems letting Jack go, even though Jack has always been a stone around Dae’s neck. Injured in an accident, Dae’s secret is unintentionally revealed to his vet assistant, Sean. However, Dae’s dual life does not deter Sean’s love for Dae.

A Change of Heart has a well-written plot with excitement, in addition to sensual intimate scenes. The characters are believable. Dae is a successful, compassionate veterinarian with an established clinic. Dae and Jack had a tumultuous relationship that ended when Dae had finally had enough of Jack’s unfaithful behavior. Four months after their separation, Dae is still adjusting to living alone. Jack has a superficial manipulative mentality that turns vicious when he is deprived of something. Jack uses Dae’s apartment as his safe house when his recent lovers get fed up and discards him. Jack enjoys his kept man status, in addition to depending on his looks to attract lovers willing to support him.

Sean is just the opposite of Jack. He is kind, as well as hard working. Sean has secretly been in love with Dae for four years. When things go terribly wrong at the clinic, Sean unwaveringly declines to leave Dae. Kiernan Kelly has created a fantastic, exceptionally gratifying short story that I enjoyed immensely.
