They say it’s better to have loved and lost. They have no idea what they’re talking about…
Police officer Graham Andersen already had his happy ending. A whirlwind romance, a young marriage, more happiness than he knew what to do with. And then it was over, almost as soon as it began.
After his husband Joey died, Graham knew he’d never find that kind of love again. But what he’d had with Joey was more than some people ever got in life. He’d had his chance at happiness. He couldn’t ask for more.
“Another night, another lifetime, and I would have said yes. But not tonight. Not anymore.”
When chef Ryan Gallagher is swindled out of his savings right before he can open his restaurant, it almost seems right. One more failure for his long list, one more way he’ll never measure up to his older brother. Joey might be gone, but he still finds a way to overshadow Ryan.
With no money and no prospects, Ryan has no choice but to move home to the family that rejected him and his sexuality. But when he goes out to the local bar one winter night, he never dreams the hot guy he’s hitting on used to be his brother’s husband.
“Please, can we just pretend this never happened? I had no idea who you were when I met you.”
Both men insist that they’re not interested. And yet neither can resist the desire they feel. But relationships require love. Love requires risk. And both Graham and Ryan know this life offers no guarantees. After a long winter in both their hearts, are they finally ready for spring?
