Extensive renovations to the brownstone, an affair with his ex-husband, family drama with his mothers, and the anxiety of significant life changes push Kevin to the brink of a nervous breakdown. In the midst of stress and uncertainty, Casper becomes more than a business partner, a mutual attraction that adds another layer of intensity and risk.
With their dreams on the verge of reality, Kevin and Casper must find the courage to face the stress of managing their attraction, the gamble of a new business venture, and the resurgence of Kevin’s personal demons.
Kevin's always dreamed of opening his own wedding gown shop. With his sister's push, he's finally taking a chance. And then he meets Casper, when fate brings them together.
Brandon Witt manages to bring to life some amazing characters. Kevin is a man who's extremely complex and even more vulnerable. His struggles are many, and his pain is constantly jumping off the pages. Overall, he's one hell of a tortured soul. And then there's Casper. There aren't many characters who are more understanding, supportive, and loving than this tender man.
But the ultimate beauty of Casper entering Kevin's life is that he is the one who can see what is happening and can make Kevin face it.
And then there's the brownstone, which is a character in itself. The changes these men make to this building are fully brought to life, and one can feel they are in the building along with the men.
