Series: Stories, book 3
Matthias Harthorn is drowning. For years he’s hidden his pain by hurting the one person who should have been able to rely on him—his younger brother, Jameson. Years of guilt, regret, and confusion build up until he’s barely able to get through the day sober.
Then one night a handsome stranger comes along and offers him a reprieve from it all. Making him question everything he thought he knew.
Neil Denning is the last man Matthias should be spending time with. Not only do his dark, piercing eyes see things that they shouldn’t—things that no one has before—but his connection to Jameson makes their budding friendship all the more off-limits. Yet no matter what the excuse, Neil doesn’t let Matthias get away with anything, forcing him to address his problems. Soon its not just Neil’s calm and matter of fact attitude that has Matthias ensnared.
With every touch and laugh shared together they grow closer. Until the door to Matthias’ ugly past swings back open, forcing him to deal with emotions and memories long since buried, in order to finally be happy. But the path that leads to healing will force Matthias to be honest with not only himself and Neil, but also the brother he so callously threw away. He’ll need to choose between letting go and living open or lose everything he’s come to care about.
