After The Storm
Beckett just wants to see Cole again. He knows that he’s lost his chance with his childhood best friend, but as long as the two of them remain close, he doesn’t care that he can never be with him.
Except that every time Beckett sees Cole—the ex-football star, the first man that he ever loved—he remembers why his feelings for him never went away, and when they have to share a hotel room, Beckett isn’t sure that he can keep it to himself any longer.
Then Cole throws him a curveball that changes everything and Beckett has to decide what matters most to him—his friendship with the boy he grew up or his love for the man he has become.
