When they meet at a bar one night, James "Rock" South and Alex "Rigger" Roberts figure they've found themselves a night of fun. The attraction burns bright for both of them, and when they head for somewhere more private, they're both amazed at how fast and hot the flames get out of control.
Rock is only in Texas for training, though, and he leaves Rigger behind when he goes back to his life as a regular Marine. Rigger's not sure he's ready to be left, though, and he follows Rock eventually, showing up on Rock's doorstep with what little he owns and a smile.
The two men, so very different but so very needy for one another, struggle to come to terms with their relationship, trying to make it work in a world where men don't love men, and if they do, they can't talk about it. Between the pressures of the outside world and the struggle between them to learn what it means to be in a committed relationship, Rock and Rigger threaten to tear each other apart. Do they have what it takes to stay together?
