Deacon Miller never had it all—he never really believed he could. Growing up in a broken home with an alcoholic mother and a revolving door of truly pathetic father figures taught him to keep his expectations low. Now at twenty-seven, on the night before Christmas Eve, his life is turned upside down yet again; his boyfriend has dumped him, he just fled the holiday family reunion from hell, and now to top it all off, a blizzard has left him stranded in an airport hotel.
Steve Steele has spent the better part of his forty-four years living a lie, ignoring his attraction to other men in an attempt to fit into the mold of the man he thought he should be, instead of living life as the man he knew himself to be. Recently divorced after coming home from work one day and coming out to his wife, Steve has floundered over the past year, desperately attempting to wade through the guilt and find the courage to start again.
That’s when a chance meeting in a hotel bar brings two lonely men together… and what should’ve been a one night stand turns into something much more than either one ever expected.

Steve is quite a bit older than Deacon (17 years, I think...
I'm totally in the minority here but I don't care for this. Deacon was kind of winey and pathetic. While I know I was supposed to feel all sorts of sympathy for him I really wanted to yell at him and tell him to man the fuck up. Not what the author was going for, I'm sure. I liked Steve I guess thou...
Rating a book 4.5 stars seems silly to me, either it was perfect or it wasn't. But... what ever. Reason it's not a full 5 is of Deacon, I had some hang-ups on his hang-ups. The drama he put Pete through went a little too far. It was an honest book, with honest characters and honest problems. I l...
3.75 At times the sadness that Deacon felt was overwhelming but I loved the romance between the MC's, it was slow moving but super hot. I really liked that there wasn't a big fix at the end and that Deacon and Steve were working hard to make their relationship succeed.
