Stuart and Cole are reunited after a decade apart, but can love overcome resentment after so long?
Cole Cassidy, Stuart Reynolds’ protector against their abusive foster father, shattered Stuart by leaving him behind the day he turned eighteen. As much as Stuart hoped and prayed that Cole would return and rescue him from the hell he lived in, it never happened.
Ten years later, Cole is stunned to find Stuart working at the Seven Plus Ranch…and Stuart is not at all happy to be reunited with the man he thought had deserted him all those years ago. Stuart learns he has been harboring an undeserved resentment toward Cole, and while recounting the time they’d endured together, a strong bond is forged between them that soon deepens into love. But Stuart is still haunted by memories of his past abuse and relives them in nightmares he feels will be too much for Cole to understand—or live with.
When a homophobic employee Cole was forced to fire returns to the ranch to destroy his work, Stuart’s nightmares escalate, and unless he can find the strength to confront his past demons, it will be his newfound relationship with Cole that’s laid to rest…
Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of homophobia, mentions of childhood rape and physical childhood abuse from the character's foster father. There is present day PTSD and a brief scene of violence.
