All it took was one night with Jace, and Tyler was hooked. Too bad it took less than one night for him to ruin any chance of being with Jace.
Twenty years of working with endangered and exploited children has left Tyler tired and jaded. Even though he’s solved hundreds of cases, saving children all over the country, the countless he couldn’t save haunt his dreams. He’s yet to meet a man who can tolerate his dark moods for long. That is, until he meets Jace.
Jace has spent his life used and mistreated by men. Even though he keeps up a strong face, he’s exhausted and his self-esteem is non-existent. Something about Tyler is different from the rest. For Jace, Tyler checks every box. However, the instant he gives Tyler a chance, the man crushes him, proving he’s exactly like every other man Jace has ever met.
Tyler hates he hurt Jace. Although he immediately regrets his actions, he also doesn’t know how to build a real relationship when he doesn’t think he has anything to offer. How can two men who’ve never known love recognize it, even when it’s staring them in the face? They’d better figure things out quick, because their relationship is heating up fast. Neither man wants to get burned, and there’s already one person who can’t wait to destroy what they have.
