At twenty-four, Andrew's never had such a big responsibility, but he takes one look at the gorgeous young man and agrees to help out.
Brett's sorry his brother died, but he craves independence. He's happy to let Andrew offer assistance, but only if Andrew gives him some space.
Andrew wonders what Brett's world of silence is like and Brett ponders the sexy books Andrew writes. Life isn't perfect for either man, but love has a way of breaking the communication barrier.
