    A single bullet destroyed the dreams of Dr. Jordan Peterson. With his lover dead, Jordan descends into an endless spiral of self-destruction that nearly costs him his friends, his career and his life. When Jordan finds himself working closely with the aloof Lucas Conover, the investment banker’s mysterious past and unexpected kindness shocks him back into a life and emotions he’d thought lost forever. 
     
    The betrayal by the foster brother he’d worshiped taught Lucas Conover never to trust or believe in anyone. Living a solitary life doesn’t free him of the nightmare of his youth; it reinforces his belief that he would never fall in love. When the death of one of his clients forces him to work closely with Dr. Jordan Peterson, he meets a person whose suffering exceeds his own. Though Jordan rejects his effort to help, something within Luke pushes him discover more about the first man to ever get under his skin. 
     
    As Luke lets down his guard and Jordan lets go of his pain, desire takes control. Each man must come to terms with past struggles if they are to create a future together. And learning to trust in themselves and love again after tragedy and a lifetime of pain, may be the only thing that saves them in the end. 
     
    This is a re-release of the original version published in 2015. It has been re-edited with over 4000 words of additional content added.

    Mike is an eighteen-year-old high school student in 1960s Hollywood when he's picked up by Glen, who offers him money for casual sex. Mike needs the cash to take his girl to the prom, so he agrees; for him, it's just another casual encounter. But when his girl jilts him for a jock, he swears off women, leaves home, and goes into business for himself by becoming a full-time hustler of gay men. 
    
    And then he encounters Glen again, and finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. Mike's journey--from love back to hustling, from hustling to the degradation of nude modeling and porn flicks, from the slimy world of modeling and porn to becoming the sex slave of a wealthy patron, and finally, the return to true romance once more--when he finds Glen for the third time--is the inspiring story of a young man who finally comes to understand himself and his place in the world, to accept himself for who and what he really is.
    
    Another great read by a master storyteller!
