An unknown male voice on the phone just informed Carter Reeves that his father is gravely ill. Carter doesn't know it, but the man behind that voice is about to change his life. Carter has been estranged from his father for years, but now he can't stay away. He finds himself back in his home town and face to face with a young guy who will shake up his whole world and have him questioning if he is really straight. The guy's name is Jude and he works for Carter's father. Jude is a good-hearted guy determined to reconcile father and son before it's too late. The odds are against him, but he won't give up. To Carter, there is something irresistible about a beautiful young guy as caring and vulnerable as Jude. Even before he can name what he feels for him, Jude has more power over him than any pretty boy should. He isn't the only one who can't put Jude behind him. A man from Jude's past is after him, looking for payback. Despite himself, Carter can't face losing him. He is driven to save and protect Jude at any cost.
