"The romantic longing, themes of bravery and confidence, and moments of cozy domesticity shine in this May-December romance" --Publishers Weekly
Summer Hemlock never meant to come back to Omen, Massachusetts...
But with his mother in need of help, Summer has no choice but to return to his hometown, take up a teaching residency at the elite Albin Academy--and work directly under the man who made his teenage years miserable.
Professor Fox Iseya.
Forbidding, aloof, commanding: psychology instructor Iseya is a cipher who's always fascinated and intimidated shy, anxious Summer. But that fascination turns into something more when the older man challenges Summer to be brave. What starts as a daily game to reward Summer with a kiss for every obstacle overcome turns passionate, and a professional relationship turns quickly personal.
Yet Iseya's walls of grief may be too high for someone like Summer to climb...until Summer's infectious warmth shows Fox everything he's been missing in life.
Now both men must be brave enough to trust each other, to take that leap.
To find the love they've always needed...
Just like that.
