About the Book:

From the award-winning author of Caught Inside comes a compulsive novel of family, forgiveness and forbidden love.

Desire draws them together; their family threatens to tear them apart…

The past months have been rough on Taylor. His parents’ marriage imploded, his boyfriend dumped him, and he feels like an interloper in his stepdad’s home. He’s counting down the days until he leaves for university. If not for his sister, he’d put all this behind him and never look back. Then Taylor’s stepbrother returns from Australia, and keeping his distance becomes far harder than he expected.

A year ago, Ben fled across the world with only his backpack and a battered heart. Now he’s home for the summer and everything’s changed. A new stepmother occupies the space where his mum should be, and his friends are in Thailand without him. There’s also a boy sharing his bedroom—a beautiful, belligerent boy who Ben can’t stay away from, even though their relationship could shatter their already fragile family.

“Jamie Deacon’s love for these characters shines through every word, so that you can’t help but fall in love with them, too.” – Robin Reardon, author of the Trailblazer series.
