Former Marine Chad Mayes planned to honor his father’s last wishes and lay him to rest in California.
Estranged from his family for so long he wasn’t prepared to return to the life he left or the people he barely remembered. He planned to do his duty and drift away to figure out his place in life.
That was the plan, right up until he laid eyes on his first crush.
Skip Simpson didn’t have time to worry about his son’s life.
An emergency call from his best friend requesting a get together sent him packing north. He went, never expecting his world to be flipped upside down when the Marine, half his age, walked in the door.
The plan was to scatter his best friend’s ashes. Not end up on a trek through the woods, with his friend’s son.
But what exactly does a free spirit and a lost soul do in the woods? Alone. For days. In one tent… when one is one’s best friend’s son and should be off limits.
Chad and Skip are about to find out.
