Hunter Fitz keeps running from his past, but the dark claws of memory follow him everywhere he goes. Taking another new job in another new city, Hunter hopes that maybe, just once, he can finally settle down.

Then he meets Kacey Reynolds, a free-spirited student who is as beautiful as he is exasperating, to say nothing of the unbearable arousal Hunter feels whenever the boy is around.

Hunter knows he can't give in to temptation. He's managed to stay celibate for two decades, and breaking that streak would make him just as bad as them.

But Kacey might prove more than he can resist.

**This book contains content of a taboo nature.** Also contains one stern logic professor who's haunted by his past, one sassy FTM trans student with an affinity for makeup and belly dancing, and philosophical musings on different cultures' views on sex and relationships.

(Note: This story takes place in a fictional world, the same as in the Shifting Isles Series. There are multiple gods, different names for the days of the week, etc. A glossary is included.)

This is such an uncomfortable book!  It covers some pretty dark and taboo elements.  So it is a true testament to the writing ability of GR Lyons, that I had to keep reading it anyway.  This is part one of a trilogy, and in this first installment we meet Kacey Reynolds, who is pretty much joy incarnate.  He has recently transitioned and is embracing his new future.  Kacey has zero self-preservation skills.  He is so determined to be involved sexually with his dream guy(s) that it seems like nothing will keep him from throwing himself off of that cliff.  He also is taking classes for a second college degree, where he meets Hunter Fitz, his philosophy professor.  Hunter definitely has demons in his past.  When those demons become part of his present is when this book gets hard to read. I wanted him to make different choices so many times!!!  I found myself wanting to yell at a fictional character in a book.  The interactions between Hunter and just about everybody in this book are hard to read.

Lyons includes so many allusions to the next book.  It seems as if worlds are going to collide in book two!  And as hard as I know it will be to read it, I feel compelled to find out what is going to happen next.
