Not all secrets can stay hidden when it comes to love.
"All along, Reed Wilder's been this crazy rebel just waiting for me to let my guard down. And so, here we are, standing at the bar waiting to get the party started."
Sexy entrepreneur Lysander Wyatt has always believed in happily-ever-after thanks to his picture-perfect family. Now orphaned, he's made a family of his own at his popular beach bar, Midsummer Nights. There's just one thing missing—the forever kind of love he's been looking for.
Reed Wilder, a guarded corporate man from Philadelphia, is looking for himself when he moves to Ocean City, Maryland. However, a rocky childhood makes him afraid of commitment. When he walks into Midsummer Nights and meets the attractive bartender who owns it, he'll have to decide if love might actually be worth the risk. Will Lysander and Reed get on the same page about commitment, or will they continue hiding the true desires and fears of their hearts?
This sweet m/m standalone 35,000-word novella is also a prequel to the popular Lines in the Sand series.
Absurd, superficial, and utterly lacking in realism.
