When fear and speculation grips his small town, Nickolas must act quickly to save the one he loves.
Nothing ever happened in the quaint town of Bridgewater, Virginia. Nickolas lives a relatively quiet life, works nights and lives with a fat cat named Max, who is the pride of his life. When a stranger arrived in town Nickolas finds his world turned upside down.
This handsome stranger actually enjoys life and isn’t afraid to take chances. Marcus remains a complete enigma to Nickolas, but he’s falling for him. When another stranger in town is assaulted and left for dead, everyone “knows” it’s Marcus who commits the crime.
Now something is happening in Bridgewater and Nickolas feels he’s the only person who believes Marcus is innocent. Close friends show their true nature and Nickolas is helpless to change their minds.
“I want you,” he confides in Marcus. “But I don’t know how. You’re the whole wide world, and I’m just a stop in the way for you getting to the other side.”
Now Nickolas must find out what really happened to the stranger and save Marcus. Can he find out the truth before it’s too late? Is their love strong enough to keep them together? Or will the truth destroy their one chance at happiness?
