Carter Haywood lives for the weekends—specifically the one weekend every month when he escapes real life, with all the pressures of work and caring for his special needs brother, to do whatever he wants, with whomever he wants. Sex is only a release; he's not looking for love, a relationship or even a second night with the same man, until he walks into a bar and finds someone who makes leaving it all behind impossible. After one incredibly passionate encounter, he breaks his rule and goes back. He needs to see this man again. And again.
Damaged goods. That's all Reed Kincaide sees and hears when he looks in the mirror. Anxiety and ADHD define his life and he’s learned to keep people at a distance, never letting them get close enough to know who he really is. When Carter proposes a monthly weekend of sex without strings, it's the ideal arrangement for him. Or so he thinks. Every month, leaving Carter proves to be more and more difficult. It’s not only the intensely hot sex they have in their hotel suite; Reed wonders about the secret life Carter refuses to share.
As months pass and they grow closer Reed finds himself falling for Carter, but he needs more than hurried hugs and farewell kisses. He wants it all. Letting Reed into his carefully constructed family life could upset Carter’s whole world, but it might be the risk he’s finally willing to take, if it means keeping Reed. Once bodies are engaged, the heart is sure to follow, and Carter and Reed discover that holding on to each other is the first step in letting go of the past.

JUST an arrangement to hookup, NO commitment, once a month, until either decides moving ON...

Weary and tired of seeking a random one night hookup, after striking out after hitting a string of Manhattan Times Square night spots, Carter in his last Saturday night chance encounter, spins on his bar-saddle-stool, grabs his attractive bartender's wrist, pulling him across the bar and into a deep throated kiss, whispering, "come back with me to my hotel room, tonight, after your shift ends! I'll make it worthwhile".. Setting up the story premise, a most interesting scenario with twisting unpredictable situations between thirty two year old Carter and twenty seven year old Reed's arrangement. This powerful interesting story is dominated with complex sad relationships in their denial of establishing their romance. A mission with NO REGRETS..?.....
