Now he's a troubled man. At thirty-eight he moves across the country to start a new life in Los Angeles, working as the catering chef for a prestigious French Restaurant.Kenny Marks, a writer who's currently waiting tables, is everything George cannot be--flamboyant, proud, and sexually confident. Enthralled by Kenny, and against his own better judgment, George agrees to a date. Sparks fly. The sex is better than good. But even after the two get close, George remains crippled by humiliating sexual hang-ups. Still haunted by his childhood, he lingers in the closet and can't commit to a relationship with Kenny.Love is the great healer, but is it enough? George's emotional scars could drive Kenny away, and with him, George's last chance at happiness.
