A long-term friendship between swordsman Slade Igerman and sniper Reeve Taylor turns intimate. Slade, a high-paid leader in the Special Forces, has difficulty dealing with people in general and has never had any luck maintaining a serious relationship. He’s an outwardly cold and withdrawn man. Reeve is the complete opposite, a social butterfly, a very outspoken and sarcastic individual, someone who seeks to enjoy everything life has to offer.
After a year together, they have created what appears to be a lasting bond and are seemingly happy. And for the first time in his life, Slade has successfully kept the interest of one man. He’s in love and can’t wait to see what the future brings. But just when he thinks things couldn’t get any better, Reeve is called away by duty.
When the sniper returns, he finds his lover to be a very changed man and their relationship on the verge of collapse. Reeve can sense it, something has happened in his absence and Slade is keeping a secret. Whether it’s love or a bruised ego, he refuses to give up until he gets an answer. But when he does get the answer, it brings a host of personal demons to the surface. Forced to face an uncertain future, Reeve wonders if love will be enough to conquer the demons and save their relationship?
