Avery Syracuse is a New York transplant with the Skeenville Fire Department. He's a little rough around the edges, but loveable. Down on his luck in the romance department, he could use some help with the bills and is looking for a roommate when new transfer, Luke Turner arrives.
Luke is one of the best firemen Avery has ever seen, and it doesn't make sense for Luke to be wasting his time in Skeenville. The two men have an instant connection, although Luke has never been into guys before. While Avery is very attracted to Luke, he knows there is something the guy is hiding, and he's worried that if they get involved, this secret may come around and bite him in the ass one day.
