Breaking all the rules…
At thirty-three, Kenny Kane seems to have it all: good looks, a great career as a university administrator, a silver BMW, a sprawling home in the tony hills of Monterey Park, and a hot firefighter for a boyfriend – that is until he cheats on Kenny with a woman! After devoting the past seven years of his life to his ex, the last thing Kenny needs is to get involved with someone new. So when he meets Jeremy Lopez at a West Hollywood bar, Kenny is content to just buy him a drink and leave it at that.
Is the only way to go…
But Jeremy won’t take “no” for an answer. Six feet tall, dressed in baggy, low-rise jeans and sporting plenty of bling, Jeremy is “straight-up East L.A.” He’s also a mere twenty-one-years-old – and of Dominican-Mexican heritage. Except for one white boy back in college, Kenny’s always dated other African-American men.
When it comes to getting what you want…
But he can’t deny the chemistry between them. And before he knows it, Kenny’s having the time of his life – hanging with Jeremy and his boys… clubbing and hitting frat parties… feeling like a kid again. But how long can a thirty-something like Kenny keep it up? And is he really gonna find what he’s been looking for with a kid like Jeremy – or will Kenny wake up feeling like he’s on the right side of the wrong bed?
