It can take losing everything to realize what you had all along.

Up-and-coming London chef Marcus Vine is poised on the edge of success, but the only men courting him are investors. That leaves Marcus with some free time—which is fortunate, because his godchildren need him.  

A year ago, a horrible accident killed Marcus’s best friend, Raine, leaving her children without a mother and her husband, Tom, without a partner. Consumed by grief, Tom has been going it alone, refusing help, but when Marcus sees him out with the children, it’s obvious that Tom and his two daughters need someone. His persistent caring finally wears Tom down, allowing him to accept the comfort Marcus offers. Soon Marcus is up to his elbows in homework, home-cooked meals, and after-school activities. Over time he helps them rebuild their world, until soon their lives are approaching normal.

Then the unexpected happens: Tom confesses he has romantic feelings for Marcus, and nothing can ever be the same.

Der kürzliche Tod seiner Frau hat den Polizisten Evan Cerelli aus der Bahn geworfen und wenn er seine vier Kinder anblickt, sieht er nur, wie er ihnen nicht gerecht wird.

Ihre Freundschaft verwandelt sich in etwas Tiefergehendes, aber Liebe ist das letzte, was die beiden Männer erwartet haben und beide haben Schwierigkeiten damit, ihre neuen und überwältigenden Gefühle füreinander mit sich in Einklang zu bringen.

Sono trascorsi dieci anni da quando il vicesceriffo Aaron George, rimasto vedovo, si è trasferito a Colton per far crescere i figli in una cittadina sicura. Tra i membri della comunità, ha conosciuto il professor Larkin, detto Larx, un allegro e divertente insegnante di scienze e allenatore di atletica delle superiori. La promozione a preside ha costretto però l’insegnante a rinunciare agli allenamenti e a correre da solo su una strada pericolosa. Aaron, che fino a quel momento ha sempre e solo dedicato la sua vita ai figli, si scopre improvvisamente preoccupato per quell’uomo e distratto dal suo petto nudo e luccicante di sudore.

Anche Larx vive per le figlie e i suoi studenti. Non è pronto a farsi ammaliare da Aaron, ma quando quest’ultimo si offre di correre con lui, inizia ad apprezzare la fermezza e l’umorismo del vicesceriffo. Inoltre hanno le stesse priorità: innanzitutto i figli, poi il lavoro, e i propri interessi tristemente all’ultimo posto.

Basta però un bacio a trasformare due uomini sulla soglia dei cinquant’anni in due adolescenti innamorati, nonostante le responsabilità di cui devono farsi carico. Poi un atto di violenza minaccia di soffocare sul nascere la loro relazione. Saranno quelle responsabilità a svolgere un ruolo fondamentale nell’impedire alla città di esplodere. E quando la situazione raggiungerà il punto critico, la loro nuova famiglia appena formata potrebbe essere proprio ciò che impedisce al mondo che li circonda di crollare.
