As mob boss Yvgeny Mosko's open secret, Dylan Anderson is content with a passionate, if loveless, arrangement that affords him a life of luxury. But at 36, he worries he's no longer the "boy" Mosko wants.
When a rival gang kidnaps him in a turf war, Mosko unleashes deadly force, leaving no one alive except for a young man whose dark eyes tug at Dylan's heart and the conscience he thought he'd excised long ago.
Though he tried to stop the kidnapping, William "Memo" Escobar knows Mosko will use what's left of him to send a powerful message to his rivals. Mosko's pampered pretty boy risks everything to help him escape, and they must go on the run together.
As the days go by Memo realizes Dylan's beauty is more than skin deep. As Memo heals, he yearns for things he believed he could never have. But behind their newfound happiness lurks the certainty that no matter how careful they are, Mosko will come for what's his. Can their growing love withstand the forces against them?
