A Dream Come True:
Mike is thrilled when his old university crush turns up at his door in answer to a roommate advertisement. Wes doesn’t remember Mike at all, or even realize Mike’s gay, but that doesn’t stop Mike from pursuing a determined campaign of seduction. The trouble is, Mike isn’t ready to give up his free and easy lifestyle and settle down with just one man.
Mike isn’t comfortable with public displays of affection. Wes doesn’t like anything resembling the proverbial closet, but Mike’s still buried deep inside one where his family is concerned. Will Wes have the patience to deal with Mike’s issues, or will their dream come true end up a nightmare?
When a shy, twenty-nine year old virgin erotica writer with a tool belt fetish crosses paths with an outgoing carpenter the fireworks soar.

A scheme is hatched that rewinds the years of Marty’s life and takes the new lovers on a cross-country road trip together.
