Cal’s always carried a torch for Dane, but Dane is so deep in the closet, he can’t even admit that he might be gay. His father, a raging homophobe who rules the family with an iron fist, forces Dane into an engagement—to a woman. Dane goes along with it to keep the peace and protect his mother, but for Cal, it’s the last straw.
He can’t let Dane make a mistake that could ruin the rest of his life, and he only knows one surefire way to make Dane admit what’s in his heart. But confessing his feelings to his friend could backfire, driving a wedge between them. And even then, the choice must be Dane’s—to live the life his father wants, or to give up everything he has for a chance at happiness in Cal’s arms.
I have been looking forward to this story since I read the previous story earlier this year and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The only thing Dane has ever stood up to his dad about is his friendship with Cal. He can’t believe when Cal is willing to fight for him and prove that he will have someone to love and support him no matter what.
Throughout this story we could see how Dan is just used to doing what he was told but starts to re-think how he has been living his life. Learning that he could break off from his dad and that it wouldn’t ruin his life is really his tipping point. Cal’s never ending support and friendship is a big part of his willingness to change and open his life up. Both of the characters are so perfect for each other and I loved them, I just wish we could have seen a little bit more of them together. I look forward to more in this series.
Cover art by Bree Archer is absolutely wonderful.
