Elias: I broke Zane Chase's heart on the night of my high school graduation. I played straight for years, pushing love away at every turn. I created a picture perfect life - I built a billion dollar company, married a good girl, had a kid. I hid myself for decades, and I got exactly what I wanted.
But it all came crashing down. My company fired me, the wife ditched my gay a$s and took our daughter with her. The only place to go is home. My first night Abingdon, I run right into Zane. His crystal blue eyes and sculpted body wake something deep inside of me.
Zane: Elias Spaulding is a total d*ck. He's rude and presumptuous - seems he never learned any damn manners. He's got wild ideas, fast cars, and more money than God. He's everything a wild-child, punk artist like me should hate. But he's the most fascinating man I've met in years. And deep down, he's the same boy who stole that first kiss from me in the darkness of my dorm room.
Beneath his bad attitude is a man who wants a real life - a home, a family, someone to love. I was never the kind to settle down, not since I left for New York. But something's telling me that Elias might be worth the trouble.
