Between his time in the Marines and the years he’s spent working at Hamilton Security, protecting his country and its people is in Greg Wright’s blood. There’s not much that takes him by surprise anymore. That is, until he gets assigned to guard a promising new candidate in the upcoming election; a man from Greg’s past, and the one person he’d hoped to never see again.
Christopher Brooks has made a name for himself as an honest, hardworking, and fair man. As a candidate in the election for Governor of Illinois, his positive views on minority rights, especially those in the LGBTQ community, have gained him considerable support as well as the attention of some of the more radical groups. When he begins receiving threats warning him to drop out of the race, Christopher concedes to the need for a bodyguard. That is, until he comes face to face with the man hired to protect him. The only person he’d ever given his heart to. The same man who shattered it years ago.
Forced to spend nearly every minute together, the two men have no choice but to find a way to get along and put the pain from the past behind them. But as the election heats up, so does the undeniable attraction between them. Will their past differences get in the way of keeping Christopher safe? Or will they finally find what they’d lost sight of all those years ago?
