Brenden Wade has made a name for himself promoting events and has turned his micromanaging, organizational skills toward his second love comic book conventions. He has worked toward making Chessie Con the biggest name in the Chesapeake Bay area all with the help of his best friend Dakota Nye. Only now, the weight of the secrets he’s been carrying since they were teenagers threatens their friendship.
Dakota wants to enjoy life by the moment, run his podcast, and annoy his plus one as they run their conventions. He has never believed himself capable of settling down. But Brenden makes Dakota dream of possibilities. He sees no problem testing the heat between them. After all what happens between friends is no one’s business. He never expected to discover that Brenden is in love with him.
One night of passion changes both men’s preconceptions. Brenden is faced with everything he’s ever wanted but he risks having another family turn their back on him when they discover his broken promise. The last thing Dakota wants to do is hurt Brenden, but he doesn’t trust himself to stay even if Brenden has him longing for a future. Both of them are scarred by their past, but they know that no matter what they always figure out where to go together, especially when their hearts are on the line.
