After losing his partner of seven years, Patrick is moving back to Houston to find a new life. Sean is younger, but no less in need of a
fresh start. He's trying to finish college and get back on track after a series of bad mistakes. The two men get along famously, and their
physical attraction is intense, but Patrick may be too afraid to love again. He doesn't want to let himself be open to the kind of pain that
comes from losing someone.
Sean, who is far more open to his feelings for Patrick, also has a problem. His ex-boyfriend is popping up all over, in unexpected places. The ex even shows up when Sean and Patrick go on vacation together. All of their problems conspire to keep Patrick and Sean from becoming a real couple, and Sean finally decides that Patrick will never really return his feelings. Can Patrick learn to let himself care again? Find out in this precursor to Mel Spenser's popular novel Miss Me?
