Jaxon has endured two years of agony. Physical pain while recovering from the crash that killed his family and mental anguish from knowing it was his fault. If he hadn't come out as gay, maybe it would all be different.
He has one more momentous decision left in him: to break away from his overprotective aunt and uncle. He's going to cycle across America. And if it kills him? Well, maybe that's for the best.

An irresistible offer soon sends him cycling four thousand miles across America — a support, guide, and safety net for a damaged young man who is trouble, attraction, and potential disaster rolled into one scarred but delicious body.
