A three-book LGBT romance series exploring the changing relationships and identities of three young men (Aaron, a techie, Dave, a museum guard, and Matt, Dave's old flame who works in finance) set in contemporary San Francisco and Marin.
Dave Madden has just been fired from a bartending job in San Francisco. His long-suffering girlfriend helps him get a job at a nearby fine arts museum as a guard. But what Dave finds there will challenge his whole sense of identity. Despite a fling with a college roommate, he considers himself straight. Yet after his first encounter with Aaron, a young techie, Dave's life will completely change.
Dave Madden starts off the new year of 2011 with a haunting dream, which doesn't bode well for his and Aaron's relationship. While Dave clings to the stability he has found with Aaron, thoughts of his old flame Matt Cohen obsess him. A sudden trip back to Boston for a family emergency adds to Dave's angst and shakes his sense of identity further. In this sequel to Elsie Street, all bets are off.
Three months post-breakup, Aaron is adrift, the only thing sustaining him being his weekly therapy sessions. But Marc's feelings for Aaron have changed, and this unlikely couple must transition to a new and risky adventure: falling in love. By the time Aaron asks Marc to drive him back to his SoCal hometown of Carlsbad, which holds darkly painful memories, the new relationship hangs by a thread
