Plot Summary: Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" Maclane are two cops who fight and solve crimes in New York City. Dee has a great amount of romantic interest in Ryo, but Ryo isn't sure about his own feelings for his partner or what to even think of another man hitting on him. It's one misadventure and awkward moment to the next as the two of them try to sort out their relationship and feelings, while still keeping up with their jobs.
