Two misfits. One unbreakable connection. Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. He's never fit in anywhere his entire life. Rex Vale clings to routine to keep loneliness at bay: honing his muscular body, perfecting his recipes, and making custom furniture. His shyness and imposing size have kept him from connecting with people. When the two meet, their chemistry is explosive, but Rex fears Daniel will be another in a long line of people to leave him, and Daniel has learned that letting anyone in can be a fatal weakness. Just as they begin to break down the walls keeping them apart, Daniel is called home to Philadelphia, where he discovers a secret that changes the way he understands everything. Now they'll have to hold onto each other for dear life. Because love conquers all, after all...doesn't it?
