From college and AA meetings to his job working in a coffee shop, ex-con Gavin Chandler has a lot going on in his life. All he wants is to leave his past far behind him, especially the father who forced him to run drugs and sell his body. Romance doesn't even register on his radar. Then Braxton Irving, a self-employed security guard, shows up at the coffee shop, and Gavin finds he can't deny his interest. After some serious soul searching, he finally asks Braxton out, and the two embark on a whirlwind affair. But Braxton hasn't been completely honest with Gavin about his motivation for coming to the coffee shop that day. Braxton's feelings for Gavin are real, but so is his commitment to his work. Can their relationship survive once Gavin learns it was founded on a lie?
