There’s a new man in town.  He’s an army veteran who is recovering from wounds received in Afghanistan.  He’s got everything the gang at Rush Dessert Bar needs – experience running a large kitchen, military training and a strong work ethic, as well as charms and good looks.  He’s got his eyes set on one of the girls, and once he’s decided on a course of action, he’s not easily deterred.  The only problem is … he doesn’t have a name.  Not an official one, yet, anyway.  At first glance, he strikes me as needing a unique name, something that sets him apart from the others.  Perhaps a name like Ryker Donovan.  The more I get to know him, the more I realize that although he seems different – his tattoos, rough exterior, demanding ways – the more I realize he’s not so different from any other guy trying to make a mark in this world.  Now I think he’s more of a Garrett, which means “strength of the spear”.  Seems fitting, right?  However, the name Ryker means “strong power”, which doesn’t help.  I can’t decide.
