Book geek Yancy Bell might have a nervous bladder, but he has a strong spirit, plenty of courage, and a big heart. Popular college jock Curt Donavan seems to have everything, except he’s haunted by his sexuality and terrified of being himself to the point where he thinks it might be easiest to simply end it all. Yancy puts a stop to Curt’s plans, but it’ll be a long and difficult journey toward coming out, coming together, and working toward their dreams. With each other’s understanding and support, this pair of opposites might make it to happily ever after.


Adam Lancaster runs the Center for HOPE, a safe house for LGBT youth. Adam knows from both personal experiences and working with those who come to him for help the struggles faced by gay, bisexual, and trans people—rejection, homelessness, despair, and even death. Through HOPE, Adam creates his own patchwork family with Elijah Langley and teenager Kollin Haverty, and together they realize healing is possible, love is precious, and family doesn’t always mean blood. Each man is forced to confront pieces of themselves they’d rather not remember in order to move beyond their pain. But where there’s friendship and support, there’s always hope.
