Everything changes for Nate Collins when his family moves to the Indiana sleepy town of Long Beach and directly next door to the home of Casey Appleton.
Seven years of nearly-inseparable friendship between them finds Nate developing an unrequited adoration for his best friend, even sending them off to college together… alone and sleeping side-by-side every desolate night.
Christmas break and one drunken kiss later turns into an eighteen-day love affair—one that they both begrudgingly walk away from—each with disparate broken hearts. But five years later, after a simple trip to the bookstore, Casey makes a purchase that could change his life forever and reunite him with the man who’d once meant everything to him.
But is it too late? With so much time between them and so much left unspoken, can they truly start over?
