Every time I’ve given my heart away, it’s been scorched. Falling for a young kid like Jared is out of the question.
His sadness draws me in, and I want to protect him from the agony I see hidden behind his innocent, young eyes.
I’ve known that pain myself, and I’ll do anything to help him, except...
Do I have to give him my heart?
Do I even have a choice?
I'm a survivor, and I'll do whatever it takes to protect myself. I've never been in love before. It's the last thing on my mind, until I lay eyes on the older man who runs Macho, the gym of choice for bodybuilders. He acts like my protector, but fails to realize he might need some protecting too. He acts like a burly tough guy, but underneath the bravado beats the heart of a fragile, fellow survivor. Is it possible he'd ever love a scrawny kid like me?
