Drunken confessions. Sobering friendship. And two cowboys gambling on love...
Could he love me? Malachi has desired to know the answer since his best friend, Danny, confessed to being gay. He has never forgotten that long-ago conversation, or the secret hope that another confession would follow: that Danny is in love with him.
Danny is—and always has been—in love with Malachi. But how is he supposed to share that information without risking the only friendship that has ever mattered to him? Danny figured the best he could do was move home to Texas, buy a little rundown ranch to work, and visit the watering hole Malachi owns.
Malachi knows that something heavy is riding his friend and he's tired of watching Danny's downward spiral of too much beer and too many meaningless flings.
Enough is enough.
Except, when he gets Danny home and some strong coffee in him, the truth comes pouring out. A truth that nearly knocks Malachi out of his boots.
Courage like that doesn't come easy…and Malachi can only pray his answer is enough to turn lifelong friends into forever lovers.
