Erick was his sister’s boyfriend and Declan had kept his distance, until truth can no longer be denied.
Declan's mother has always been overprotective of his kid sister, Rosie. And ever since the death of his father, when he was fourteen, she'd expected her son to look out for her. When Rosie develops a crush on a guitarist in a band their uncle has hired in his club, Mom insists Declan find out the details. Rosie is over eighteen and about to become a police officer like her brother and father before her. Declan knows his sister and isn't that concerned. However, to satisfy his old-fashioned mother, who has clung to the values from the old country, he checks it out. Who he finds is Erick, a really cute guitar player who doesn't seem to even know Rosie is alive until Declan shows up.
Erick Powell thinks he's died and gone to heaven when he first sets eyes on the hunky, dark haired cop with the bluest eyes he'd ever seen. Erick is disappointed when Declan invites him to sit at their table and he realizes it is at the request of his sister, Rosie. Orphaned by his father who is doing time in a prison Erick doesn't want to know about, he was taken in by his uncle when he was young, a man who has been in and out of trouble with the law and is insanely homophobic. Erick has been warned to keep his sexuality under wraps. When he agrees to date Rosie to keep his uncle happy and at the hopes of seeing her brother again, things begin to unravel. Mysteries are uncovered that will connect Erick and Declan in a way they never expected.
