Ultra-preppy Liam McAllister and purple-haired high school dropout Dimitri Cirillo know a thing or two about the whole "opposites attract" adage. The two men wouldn't likely be friends, much less lovers, yet their mutual attraction is all-consuming.
When Liam, heir to the McAllister Construction fortune, falls for a heavily inked go-go dancer known as Dimmy, he realizes it might take his all-important image down a notch (or ten) to admit this romance to his upper-crust family. Liam is sure this unsuitable pairing won't go over well, especially with his father, Colin – who is obsessed with building a family legacy.
Dimmy sees Liam as a man who will take care of his needs in a manner his callous father Gregory never did. Demanding that his son earn his keep, Gregory insists that Dimmy dances provocatively each night at his seedy gay bar. By day, Dimmy provides masseuse services (and more) to relative strangers, for which his disreputable father confiscates the cash. Though Gregory is far from an ideal role model, Dimmy lives in hope of receiving his father’s rare smile.
Windermere is a small town, and unsurprisingly, Colin McAllister and Gregory Cirillo’s business interests clash, causing their sons’ lives to dangerously collide.
Dimmy reluctantly lets his guard down to trust in his white knight, but Liam still struggles with fulfilling his duty to his father. He hides his blossoming relationship with Dimmy, who doesn’t fit the bill for a suitable partner, leaving Dimmy at risk. When the right side of the tracks meets the oh-so-very wrong side, lives are shattered.
