Anne Cain worked more magic and created a cover for this whole series.
Hugo Thorson was never accepted in his small town, and living with a sick father pushed him farther away from his peers. When Kevin Magnus moved to town, he knew what path his life would take. Until he befriended Hugo. What started out as hikes in the wood, where both teens opened up about struggles at home, soon turned into comforting touches, kisses, and more. They hid the true nature of their relationship from their friends and family, but they fell in love. And they fell hard. Their last day together, rain interrupted their kisses. If Hugo had known that was the last kiss they would share, he would’ve stayed, but instead, he’d let Kevin go.
Years later they have a second chance, but their lives come with complications. Kevin, still closeted, has followed his father’s plan and is now in the shadow of divorce but is striving to be a better father to his children. Hugo is an out-and-proud actor and director who occasionally performs in drag―something that has cost him in past relationships, so he now keeps it a secret.
Hugo and Kevin have a chance meeting at a lake cabin. The spark is still there, their love is begging to flare to life again, but first they have to travel through darkness no one expected. The news Kevin gets from the mother of his children has a huge impact on his relationship with Hugo. It could tear them apart or fuse them together. But first, they have to decide if their love is worth fighting for.
