Colton never thought he would amount to much, but Sage and Derek Osbourne never let him believe otherwise. And it was with a place he could call home that Colton let himself believe he had a future. If only that future involved the ridiculously attractive, much older man who just breezed into Fairfield. At nineteen, Colton knows he’s young, and he knows his life isn’t easy, but he also knows what he wants. If only Marcel would trust him to make those decisions. He’s ready to be with someone, to lose his virginity, to fall in love. He just needs that someone to trust him.
Marcel has never wanted anything more than average. A husband, a simple job, a house with a picket fence, and maybe a dog. All of that seems so far out of his reach, though, when in spite of how hard he works, he’s rarely given a chance to be just like everyone else. But when Marcel goes out for a drink to forget, he walks away with an attachment to a younger man who has no business wanting to be with someone as messy as Marcel. Colton insists he knows what he’s getting into, but Marcel likes him far too much to subject him to all the ways Marcel’s life will hurt him—whether he wants it to or not.
Will the two men find a way to come together, or will Marcel let his assumptions of what will be eclipse the joy and bliss of what could?
