As the designated slacker of the family, Peter Stevens was accustomed to being eclipsed by his “perfect” older brother, Mark.
But when Mark came out to their parents one Christmas vacation, it was his turn to be the black sheep. Even more surreal was Peter’s brief encounter with his brother’s boyfriend, Colin. The unmistakable sparks between them shook the foundations of his what he thought about himself.
Years later, when they meet again as graduate student and professor, that bone-deep attraction is still there.
After a painful break-up with Mark, Colin has had his fill of Stevens men. Having Peter stay in his apartment shouldn’t be a problem though, as he knows the younger man is straight. But when Colin realizes the electricity sizzles both ways, he can’t resist indulging in a passionate affair.
Yet some old flames stubbornly refuse to die. This time, Peter refuses to step aside— and when an emergency brings the family together again, Colin must decide if it’s worth the risk to trust another Stevens brother with his heart.
"The plot is rich in detail and subtle in message, and Peter's relationship with Colin is thoroughly and playfully sexy, joyfully leading readers through a truly romantic journey toward happiness."
