”I know The One for me is out there.”
Ethan’s never been the type of man to handle loneliness well. Sure, he can fit the stereotype of someone big and tough, muscles straining the fabric of his security uniform – but underneath, he has a heart as open and as loving as anyone’s. And he wants to share that love with another man. Which is why he comes up with one single New Year’s Resolution: to get married before the new year is through.
”Commitment for me means heartache and scars.”
Owen knows that life doesn’t always have a happy ending. He’s been there and done that, and he’s not looking to open his heart to anyone else. His bed? Sure. He can wine and dine and screw with the best of them. But when Ethan gets under Owen’s skin, the baker isn’t sure what to make of it.
”Does true love really exist?”
But Owen’s secrets are a heavy enough burden for him to bear, the scars they leave flayed into his soul. He can’t risk getting any closer to Ethan than a simple fling – and he certainly can’t risk his heart enough to marry him.
