Beyond the shadows, his love held true for only one man
Derek Lawrence is a player. There is no other way to phrase it. He's been unstoppable since coming out in high school. Guy after guy—conquest after conquest. He isn't looking for a commitment from anyone. His life is perfect the way it is.
Except for one rather significant exception. Derek has been in love with his best friend and business partner, Justin Leary, since the first day he set eyes on him over twenty years ago. Despite the daily agony of being in Justin's company, Derek has never shared his feelings with Justin, fearing it would ruin their friendship.
When an implication surfaces that Justin's feelings for Derek might also run deeper than friendship, Derek considers approaching Justin about it. But before he can, one targeted act of violence while camping with friends, followed by the aftermath of violation, challenges not only their friendship—but the strength of their love for one another.
Will they ever be able to find their way past what transpired in that tent?
