Nick Colton was a spoiled rich kid when he ran away from Seattle, leaving his best friend and lover Alex Diaz behind. Ten years later, he's back.
He says he's there to donate bone marrow for his half-sister, but Alex knows there's more to it than that. Alex wants to protect himself and everyone else from Nick's plans, but he needs to spend time with the man in order to figure out what he's up to. And the more time they spend together, the more Alex realizes that his own attraction to Nick is far from resolved.
Nick is bent on revenge, Alex is trying to maintain his straight and conservative lifestyle, but neither of them can forget what they used to have and what they might, someday, be able to have again.

I have been given this book in exchange for an honest review. As you can tell by my rating I liked this book a lot! It's a wonderful story about two men who after ten years of growing up separately get back together. Nick and Alex separated after an incident landed them in jail after a night of collage drinking. Each boys parents had talked to their son and those conversations led to Nick leaving home for ten years. He came back when asked to be tested to see if he'd be a match for his half sister, who needed a bone marrow transplant. He had never met his fathers wife and their children, and thought sure why not be tested. Then he could say he did what was expected. But he also had another motive for returning. During his ten years away he became somewhat of a corporate raider, and wanted to take away his fathers business. Alex became a lawyer and Nick's fathers business was his only big account. This story has family drama, business drama and two men who never really wanted to be away from each other. But because of parental guidance it happened. And by the way, both parents were right in their arguments. There is really no bad guy in this story and I think that's why it really worked for me. I was rooting for everyone. A really nice read. I enjoyed it a lot!
Kate Sherwood has done it again. She had me going through an emotional rollercoaster the entire story. I didn’t know who I was angry with or pitied. Everyone made bad choices and was hurting. This is not the same level of emotional angst as Dark Horse, but it was enough to make it satisfying. Basically Nick and Alex were best friends their entire lives, and eventually lovers. Nick is rich, outgoing, carefree and reckless. Alex’s parents are domestic helpers to Nick’s family. He is reserved, cares for everyone and thinks before he acts. The book begins with Nick’s father bailing him out of jail. Nick and Alex are in college at this time and they were arrest after a night of heavy drinking. Nick’s father doesn’t know what to do with Nick at this point. He is getting out of control and nothing seems to be making him grow up. Due to their wild night, Alex’s scholarship is in jeopardy and Nick’s father cuts a deal with the dean that leaves Nick high and dry. Nick can take a lot from his father as long as he has Alex, but after letting his parents down and getting arrested, Alex tells Nick that he is not good for him and that they shouldn’t be together any more. Now Nick has absolutely nothing and he leaves everything he know. Ten years later he is back to save a half sister he’s never met. Nick might seem like a spoilt little rich boy, but he does have a good heart. He left hurting over rejected love from both Alex and his father. He felt he would never be good enough in their eyes. When he comes back he is excited to show them just have far he’s got, but no matter how much his plan succeeds, he can’t be happy. Alex has missed Nick a lot since he’s left. He doesn’t understand why Nick has kept himself away from the family for so long or why he would hate them so much. The ending was a little rushed for my taste. Everything was wrapped up very quick. Hopefully there will be a second book because I would love to see how these two are doing. If you are a fan of Kate Sherwood, then you should enjoy this book.
