As a member of a covert military unit, John Davidson isn't scared of much. Yet one look into Heath Kane's dark blue eyes and he knows a different kind of fear for the first time. John can't be gay, at least not out and proud in his unit, even with Don't Ask, Don't Tell repealed. He's never been interested enough in any man to risk the fallout. Heath's hometown wasn't the best place for a gay kid to grow up, but his grandmother did her darnedest to make it good for him. Now he's paying her back for all her love. She's getting older and needs help, so he returns home to wait tables at the Corner Café while taking online courses to get his degree. Even though the Army base provides him with a lot of buff eye candy, he knows it's best to keep his head down. Neither Heath nor John can deny their attraction, and John's finally willing to act on their mutual interest. But holding on to each other will mean big changes in both their lives.
