“Being with him is the very definition of getting stuck between a rock and a hard place.” All Tristan’s ever wanted was to make a difference - and becoming a lawyer was the tool to make that happen. It’s easy for people to judge others without thinking, but Tristan’s seen too many innocents chewed up and spat out by the system to not fight for those who’ve been wronged. But this case? It’s not just affecting him professionally. His ethics say that he should stay far away from the victim’s family… but his heart says he should bring Upton close and never let him go. “I can’t believe I trusted him.” Upton is absolutely incensed that anyone would consider letting his cousin’s murderer out of jail. But he doesn’t have time to dwell on it - he’s got a book to write if he wants to keep food on the table for him and his son. And when his son makes a new friend who has an incredibly attractive father, Upton feels himself falling for the first time since his husband left him four years ago. There’s only one problem - Tristan is a lawyer. For the defense.
