Tavian doesn’t know how lucky he is…but he’s about to find out.
After winning a role in an independent film, up-and-coming actor Tavian Bianchi decides to go Method to get into his character’s headspace, and takes a gig with his uncle’s construction crew. That’s where he meets Frowny McBlue, aka Asher Sullivan, a working class guy with an incredible body, sparkling blue eyes...and an attitude problem.
From the moment they meet, Tavian seems to annoy the prickly Ash. But Tavian soon discovers that Ash’s hard exterior hides a heart of gold, and a lonely existence. By day Ash works the tower crane, and by night he shuts himself away from the world in his tiny apartment.

Can Tavian persuade Ash to break down the walls he’s built up over the years?
Can Ash let go of the chip on his shoulder?
Or will class conflict get in the way of true love?
