And fight back or die trying.
At his sister’s suggestion, he tries self-defense courses. Little does he know when he asks the man to teach him, he'll be guarding more than his body, he'll be guarding his heart.
Aspiring MMA trainer Benjamin is on his last leg, literally. As a wounded warrior, he's scarred from a broken heart that has nearly broken his spirit.
So when Jake approaches him for lessons and tells him his story, it touches his heart.
The more time Jake and Benjamin spend together, the more they realize they’re becoming best friends.
The more time they spend together, the more they realize they can't live without each other.
The more time they spend together, the more they realize they’re falling in love.
But Jake has a secret, one that could change everything....
Review: So, I'm glad I found this one for free today. We come into the story with a bit of tragedy. Gay bashing is a real thing and the situation with Jake and his friend Alberto is an ongoing issue in the story, and kind of at the center of it. They're surrounded by bible thumpers and homophobes. Then there's Benjamin. He's confident and sometimes borders on cocky. But it's a good thing. He's not the most overly emotional guy. He's blunt, and borders on being a jerk but at least it's not hard to figure out where he stands on any particular issue. I was a little wary of the step brothers thing, but it's not like they grew up together. Besides, they're not related by blood and their relationship is interesting. Actually, it's funny in several places. The way they talk is realistic but hilarious to me personally. The sex scenes tickle me because of the dirty talk but i love the story overall, and I especially love the ending. People getting their just desserts always wraps up a story nicely.
