When Presley Dawson falls in love with a married man, he
knows it’s wrong but can’t help himself. For the first time he’s wanted and
desired and not so lonely. When his lover returns to his husband, Presley
doesn’t worry. He always comes back—until he doesn’t.
Years later, Presley is stuck in neutral and lonelier than
ever. He can’t forget his past and doesn’t know how to reach for his future.
When his best friend suggests a support group to work through his grief,
Presley agrees but without much hope; nothing has helped before. At the first
meeting, he’s instantly attracted to Nate and struggles not to fall so far, so
fast. He won’t be fooled again.
Nate Sherman is only attending a support group to get his
family off his back. True, he hasn’t slept through the night in over three
years, but he has reasons. Discovering your father—the man you love and
idolize—is a liar and a cheater will do that. And dying in his girlfriend’s
bed? No wonder Nate has trust issues.
Meeting Presley changes everything. Nate sees Presley’s
sweet nature and good heart and when he sets boundaries for their relationship,
Nate surprises himself by willingly going along. With Presley by his side, Nate
is able to sleep again and find the trust that he’s lost in himself and other
people. He can even fall in love.
But Presley is keeping a secret and if he tells Nate, it
could be the end of everything between them. He knows it’s wrong to start
another relationship based on a lie. But it isn’t a lie if you don’t say
