As they prepare for the puppy's arrival, their twenty-year friendship becomes something more. Jasper's ready to take things to the next level, but after crossing paths with Greg's ex one too many times, he can't help thinking there's something left between them.
Will Greg have the courage to let Jasper in, or will his fears sabotage their friendship for good?
