Publisher's Summary

On 9/11, firefighter Nick Fletcher’s world changed forever. He's unable to rid himself of survivor’s guilt, made worse by the secret he hides from his family and co-workers. Nick's life is centered around helping burn victims, until he is reunited with the man he’d once loved but pushed away. Now he has a second chance at a love he thought lost forever.

For fashion designer Julian Cornell, appearances mean everything. His love affairs are strictly casual, and the only thing he cares about is making his clothing line a success. A chance encounter with the man he loved long ago has Julian thinking for the first time in years there may be more to life than being seen at the best parties and what designer labels to wear.

When Julian’s world takes an unexpected turn, it's Nick who helps him regain perspective on what matters most in life. Julian, in turn, helps Nick accept who he is and understand he isn’t responsible for tragedies he couldn't prevent. Lost love found can be even sweeter the second time around and after all the years apart, both men learn to look beyond the surface to find the men they are inside.

Fantastic

I love this series and when the narration became available I had to listen too! I loved Nick and Julian’s story at a second chance for their happy ever after. At one point childhood sweethearts, Nick broke Julian’s heart by being determined to do what was expected of him - meet a woman and raise a family. While Nick followed in his Dad’s footsteps of becoming an NYC Firefighter, Julian pursued his dream of becoming a fashion designer. When Nick and Julian found each other again, the same feelings and old hurts resurfaced. I loved the complexity of their story and Nick trying to navigate the familial expectations as well as those of his Firefighting family. I loved Julian’s patience with Nick as he found himself and his support of the new Nick post 9/11. Their story gave me all the feels - laughter, smiles, sadness, tears and happiness. I loved their journey together.
