Vince Forsberg hasn’t been back to Asbury Park, New Jersey in years. Not since his first serious boyfriend broke his heart. But when he receives an invitation to his childhood best friend’s thirtieth birthday party, the pro hockey player is thrust back into his old haunts… and comes face to face with the one man he can’t make himself forget.
Joseph Parelli always looked at Vince as the one who got away. He may have messed up once, but he’s older now and more mature. After a life-threatening experience, he knows what he wants, and who he wants. The night club manager will do whatever it takes to convince his first love to give him a second chance.
Over hot days and hotter nights, Vince and Joseph rediscover each other. But when the past threatens to repeat itself, will their second shot at love be a game-winner or ring hollow off the post?
