One hidden crush.
One bunch of plastic mistletoe.
One alcohol-fueled kiss.
One set of taillights as Max Martino left town.
Sixteen years later…
Sam Addison hates change, and his company's new merger is stretching him to his limit. When Sam finds out an older, hotter, and amazingly talented Max Martino is part of the acquisition, he knows the only way to protect his heart is to avoid Max—and their history—at any cost.
Max never planned to settle down, but recently he's been pining for roots. A new job, a new city, and a second chance with Sam makes the thought of staying in one place exciting for the first time ever.
But the harder Max pushes, the farther Sam runs, sometimes literally, and Max begins to wonder if Sam can ever let go of the biggest mistake Max ever made—leaving.
But maybe a second chance at forever is as simple as holding the door open for love.
Hold the Door is the first full-length novel in the Open Doors series and features an accountant who's uptight unless he's on the beach, a globetrotting travel photographer who never realized he wanted to settle down, and surfing lessons that often lead to more.
