Everyone deserves a second chance.
Nate and his teenage daughter need a fresh start, so they move back to the village where he grew up. Nate’s transgender, and not used to disclosing his history, so it’s hard living where people knew him before. When Nate reconnects with Jack—his best friend from school and unrequited crush—his feelings return as strong as ever.
Jack’s returned home to get his life in order after an addiction to alcohol caused him to lose everything: his job, his driver’s licence, and nearly his life. He’s living with his parents, which is less than ideal, but rekindling his friendship with Nate—or Nat as Jack once knew him—is an unexpected benefit of being back home. Jack is amazed by Nate’s transformation, and can’t deny his attraction. Trying for more than friendship might ruin what they already have, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.
Doubting his feelings are reciprocated, Nate fears he’s risking heartbreak. Jack’s reluctance to tell his parents about their relationship only reinforces Nate’s misgivings. With both their hearts on the line and their happiness at stake, Jack needs to make things right, and Nate has to be prepared to give him a second chance.

The world needs more stories like this!
We need more diverse stories and this one is truly beautiful. Transformative, sweet and steamy, this former best friends to lovers story with the sweetness and heart of teenage unrequited love being fulfilled in adulthood, will open your heart and mind to love in all forms and give you hope that Second Chances do exist.
This story has so much depth and healing. I loved that each character had their own story and came back together later in life and were finding love in their 40s. Love has no age limit and I love stories that are inclusive of all ages, types, sexes and genders. Nate is such a wonderful character and I loved getting to know his story. His feelings, emotions and thought are so authentic and it will make you think more carefully about the words you chose to use for transgender people in the real world. I loved this story and loved that I finally got around to reading it. I want more authentic trans/own voices stories. This one will be forever in my heart!
Fantastically written and wonderfully performed. I was completely enraptured by Nate and Jack ❤️!
