Publisher's Summary

Teacher Dane Bernard is a gentle giant, loved by all at Summitville High School. He has a beautiful wife, two kids, and an easy rapport with staff and students alike. But Dane has a secret, one he expects to keep hidden for the rest of his life - he's gay.
But when he loses his wife, Dane finally confronts his attraction to men. And a new teacher, Seth Wolcott, immediately catches his eye. Seth himself is starting over, licking his wounds from a breakup. The last thing Seth wants is another relationship, but when he spies Dane on his first day at Summitville High, his attraction is immediate and electric.
As the two men enter into a dance of discovery and new love, they're called upon to come to the aid of bullied gay student Truman Reid. Truman is out and proud, which not everyone at his small-town high school approves of. As the two men work to help Truman ignore the bullies and love himself without reservation, they all learn life-changing lessons about coming out, coming to terms, acceptance, heartbreak, and falling in love.

Truman is a high school freshman in a small town and he's gay. Truman doesn't hide that's he's gay and because of this he endures a lot of bullying from other students. This part of the story made me cry. I hurt for Truman and was angry with the principle for not doing something about it.

Dean is a teacher. He's married and has a 16 and 12 year old. He's known he was gay since he was a teen but kept it hid. When Dean's wife is killed in a car crash Dean decides to come out.

Seth is a teacher and openly gay. Seth has moved to get away from a past lover.

Not giving anything away...Dean and Seth help Truman. Also Dean and Seth become lovers.

This is a heartfelt story that takes you through an array of emotions. I rated the Overall and Story 4 stars because I think Seth and Dean's relationship was hurried. There could have been more time and detail spent on these two.

I was looking for something different and I found it. Absolutely worth the credit or $$.

Narrator had an odd inflection

Story was still great. Lots of unexpected twists. I wish it had gone on for maybe one more chapter to close things up.
