Overview

After an accident left him broken in body and spirit, Charlie Howard retired from the police force to teach at a community college. Life has taught him that he’s unlikely to get what he wants, so he’s stopped asking. Instead, he hides from the world in the apartment complex he manages. After all, no one can leave him if he doesn’t let anyone in.

Will, a sexy, classic-film-loving twink, moves into the apartment across from him and—to Charlie’s surprise—makes it clear that he’d like nothing more than to hole up with Charlie and get kinky. Will has no problem expressing what he wants in bed or out of it, but he’s never dated anyone long-term, and Charlie isn’t sure Will’s ready for anything serious.

Charlie is a serious kind of guy. He wants Will and everything a relationship could mean, even if he doesn’t have any experience in that scene—even if that makes him vulnerable. As they grow closer, Charlie realizes that it’s time to start asking for what he wants, and if he wants to be happy, he’ll have to risk everything and ask Will to stay.

    Charlie Howard has some serious self esteem problems after being

    Charlie Howard has some serious self esteem problems after being mentally and physically torn down and broken apart. He has made a huge career change from being on the police force, to teaching at a community college. After constantly being torn down by the outside world, he has accepted his fate of never getting what he feels he deserves. So now, he hides inside his apartment, unwilling to face the world in order to avoid disappointment.

    On the outside, he needs to be the strong and brave man he wants to appear as to his sisters, now that their mother is gone. He hides his pain and depression, but can he really hide forever.

    Honestly, Charlie's family uses him for so many different things in their life, it's not surprising that they don't see what's going on inside of Charlie.

    Things are so dull and boring, not to mention a bit depressing, until someone flirty and sexy moves in to the apartment building just across the hallway. He is conflicted because he knows he wants to be with sexual with Will but can he make this something long term? He's gone through so much, does he have any love to give? Does he have anything in him worth loving?

    It's a long road to opening up to someone new with absolutely no experience, together they will help each other overcome their fears and find true love. They can sometimes appear to be a normal couple who bickers now and then, but I found their dialogue to get a bit confusing. I wasn't sure if I was skimming through paragraphs, but when I'd go and re-read I found it seemed to be missing a lot. Or maybe they're just that good together that they can finish each others unspoken thoughts.

    In order to find these answers, Charlie must dive into a place he has never gone before, and with little to no experience to back him up.
