"Whatever happens in the future, whatever we become in life, know you’re the best thing that ever happened to me."
Taking up shop in the former kosher bakery, Wilder Torres breathes new life into old traditions, but there’s a darkness about him most of the residents in Cherry Creek don’t want to touch. He’s a kind and quiet man, but Wilder hides scars under long sleeves from a vicious attack that nearly took his life, and he’s determined never to let anyone close enough to hurt him ever again.
And then he meets Lorenzo Moretti, a stranger sitting on a park bench, looking like the world had just kicked him in the gut.
Wilder has seen that look before, for years whenever he looked in the mirror. He knows the disaster that lies ahead, but he can’t deny wanting, even if he knows it’ll be hard work. And Wilder also Lorenzo deserves someone to remain steady and love him through it all. Even if he can’t find the ability to love himself.
