Martin Pendleton was the most beautiful man I'd ever met. He was also the first man I'd ever been attracted to.
I'm Dean Gilchrist, and my twin sister Cat and I run a small tech startup. Looking for angel investors isn't my favourite way to spend time. Not even when they're gorgeous and charming. But there's gorgeous and charming, and then there's Martin Pendleton.
I've no idea why Martin caught my eye. Could be his charisma. Could be the hint of frost at his temples. Could be his voice. All I know is looking at him gives me the shivers and one word from him can turn me into the awkward, tongue-tied nerd I used to be. Nobody else has ever managed that. It's all very strange.
Stranger still, Cat is totally fine with my sudden interest in batting for the other team. Not that I've done an awful lot of batting for the regular side, you understand. And I’ve no idea how to go about wooing a guy. But the way Martin makes me feel? I've got to try this even if it kills me. And with the way bullets suddenly start flying… it just might.
