Learning to Live and Love Again

Three years after his partner’s death, Alexander Westport is still simply going through the motions. Work as a high school English teacher, softball practice, and the occasional family dinner is how he spends his time, but he knows that’s not really living.
An anonymous encounter at a local gay club first brings Dan and Alex together, and after a second chance encounter, the men strike up a friendship that quickly turns romantic. When professional and personal troubles threaten their fledgling relationship, Dan and Alex learn battles fought together are won more easily than those faced alone.
Christopher Schuyler wasn’t someone who got many breaks. After eight frustrating years working as a club bouncer and fighting on the amateur circuit, a prestigious MMA training gym offers Chris an opportunity he can't walk away from.

A literal run-in with Chris brings the two men together, and soon they are both taking chances they had never imagined. Taking risks is one thing, but are they strong enough to overcome the skeletons of the past?
