An age-gap romance about two men testing boundaries and working through their control issues. A little bit kinky.
The new regular at Rise n’ Grind is handsome, sophisticated and miraculously, interested in Lake. Lake accepts Everett’s invitation to dinner while wondering what a down-on-his-luck barista has to offer this charming and successful older man.
Everett Shaw has regrets and sees in Lake Fellows an opportunity to rectify his past mistakes. Even better, Lake seems to crave the structure and discipline Everett provides. Their compatibility in and out of bed is a rare gift and one that Everett intends to nurture.
As their relationship develops, Lake’s luck begins to change overnight. Is it his newfound confidence or Everett’s subtle influence opening doors that were formerly closed? Lake can’t tell if he’s finding or losing himself in Everett’s arms, whether Everett’s impression of him is real or only make-believe. But Lake is determined to be the man Everett needs and the man he desires, even if they’re only playing pretend.
