Alex is a compulsive writer, avid reader and geek of many stripes. He grew up on fantasy literature and never could shake the bug. Now he divides his time between epic fantasy and adventure romance, where dark heroes are around every corner. Someday he plans to own his own forge and armory (for character research, of course). Until then, he'll spend his days in the company of knights, heroes, villains and monsters, all of which have taken up permanent residence in his head.
Dom Sal is the star quarterback of his high school football team. His charming, earnest personality has girls tripping over themselves to be with him. Everyone knows his family lives in the St. Michael Charity Housing, but all that matters is how many touchdowns he can score. And Dom never lets them down. No one knows he hides a secret--he dreams about men.
Damion Adrik is the school freak. His gothic style and cold, biting sarcasm keeps everyone at arm's length. His all-too-perfect family is a prison cell, and he's slowly destroying himself from the inside out. No one knows he has secrets of his own and that he's tormented by the darkness he takes comfort in. No one truly sees him, until Dom.
When these two worlds collide and the spark of attraction pulls Dom and Damion together, both boys are faced with choices that will break their realities in two. While conflict with parents and peers drives them closer together, their inner battles threaten to destroy the relationship they fight so desperately to keep. In the end, they must choose whether to be true to themselves, and each other, or to drown in the lives they built before.
Note: This book contains themes of self-harm and drug use.
