Jefferson Austin Bonham, or Ty to his few friends, is perfectly content with his life. He has a decent business, a flamboyant male assistant, and a sterile, stripped down apartment. Ty has built himself the kind of life people have always envisioned for him, pushing down his teenage desire to become an artist. He thinks it suits him, has convinced himself that's what he wants. That he has all he needs. It works just fine until a blast from the past breezes in his door, wanting to hire him as an image consultant. Abe is all bad boy, just like he was back in college, needling Ty until he's ready to kiss the man or kill him, one of the two. They fight as hard as they did when they were boys together, but the attraction between them is just as strong as the animosity. Together they start to rebuild Abe's image, renovate old buildings, and realize that sometimes what people expect them to be is not what they want in life. Can Abe convince Ty that there's more to life than black clothes and chrome furniture? And will their past be willing to let go long enough for them to have a future?
