App developer, photographer, and nightclub owner Wyatt Holt's life is never dull. A frequent traveler, he's found a home base in Philly and though opening up is difficult, friends who accept his attention-jumping self as he is. But he yearns for someone special to share things with. Someone like Rocco, the burly Italian in his rugby club who calls to Wyatt with every sparking interaction, and who seems determined to keep him at arm's length. 

All work and no play defined chef Rocco Accardi's life in the years since his second restaurant rose from the ashes of the first one's failure. Thriving professionally with a team he trusts, he can relax enough to resume playing in a rec league rugby league with his longtime friends. Wyatt's arrival mid-season tempts him to see if he can make room in his life for someone else, and to break his rule against dating someone so many years away from his own age. Though he tries to stubbornly hold out, Wyatt is hard to resist, and Rocco can't deny the pull he feels toward the vibrant younger man.

As the holiday season unfolds, Rocco and Wyatt find more in each other than they ever imagined. But Rocco wrestles with loosening the reins at work and fears Wyatt's penchant for jetting off on adventures isn't compatible with a life so consumed by his business. And longing for companionship, Wyatt struggles with Rocco's almost nonexistent work-life balance and whether there's a place for him in it. Can they find a way to gift
