Dante Rivers just lost the rodeo by two one hundredths of a point: he's frustrated as hell, needs to get laid, and he knows just where to go. That night he meets Ryan Abbott and catches his eye-Ryan watched the rodeo and is still riding high on the rush. The chemistry between them ignites, but Dante, unable to deal with complications, leaves while Ryan's asleep.
Ryan figures he'll never see Dante again, but they're fatefully reunited when Dante's grandfather, Hy, hires Ryan to help straighten out some old investments. The attraction between Ryan and Dante still sizzles. Sex slowly turns to more, but obstacles abound: Hy's failing health, Dante's homophobic sponsor, an attack on Ryan, and Dante's own struggle with his identity. Any one thing would be enough to separate them permanently... unless they both decide to hang on for the wild ride.
