Ben can't walk away from Aiden, even though Aiden seems to have no problem walking away from him, time and time again. In spite of his friend's warnings, Ben refuses to believe that Aiden is just using him, until a devastating secret is revealed. However, Aiden isn't the only one with something to hide.
Someone else is keeping a secret that threatens not only Ben and Aiden's relationship, but Ben's very life. Will they be able to keep Ben alive?
I was utterly surprised and taken aback by how much I enjoyed this very short story. There was actually some character development as well as a genuine plot that flowed, along with some conflict. Emotions ran high and I felt for the situation the characters found themselves in and wanted it to genuinely work out for them. While the story starts off right out of the gate with sex, once it ended, the book became about the secret and the resolution to it. But that works and works well. Overall, a highly enjoyable short.
