Vannguard Shaw has spent the last ten years serving a life sentence and adjusting to the ache of solitude. He accepts his fate, a sacrifice for the only man he ever loved and the one person who saw beyond his rough edges.
Drayton grew up with a trust fund and pre-planned future, but an unexpected encounter one night forces him to abandon everything and start from scratch. He is now a self-made man and developer of one of the most sought after electric exotic automobiles in the world with a fortune greater than that of his birthright. Yet, he’d surrender it all—again—for the only man who’s still ever-present in his heart.
After a decade and entirely too much distance between them, Vann is suddenly released back into a world that has been nothing but cruel. Drayton never lost hope they would once again reunite and pick up where they left off, but Vann’s stubborn nature and repeated encounters with a heartbreaking world prove to be a challenge.
Vann needs to tap into his fighting spirit’s reservoir of strength and hope life doesn’t punish him for taking a chance. Only then will he realize his own value and feel worthy enough to finally have Drayton’s heart. And their chance at forever.

Jaime Reese is a new to me author and I am so glad I found her because this book….this book was everything.
It’s no secret that I absolutely love the MM genre, and when you find someone who can write a story that makes you feel all the emotions of the character’s well, then, you have found someone you need to follow. And Drayton and Vann…could there ever have been two men made for each other more than these two? They meet at a young age and have 7 years together. 7 years to build their friendship and relationship. 7 years to know they love each other. But then one night, everything changes. And it’s 10 years before these two are reunited. But even space and time does nothing to extinguish the love these two men have for each other.
My heart cried for the pain Drayton endured his whole life, not having heard the words I Love You from anyone, including his parents. And poor Vann, he was broken, defeated…..sometimes letting the words everyone has thrown at him his entire life sink in too deep and lay roots to thoughts he should never have because Drayton never say him as anything other than HIS.
