Jon Beatty thought he’d found the best man for him until Craig walked out. To add insult to injury, Craig's got a new lover—a woman—and wants Jon to be a different kind of best man…at his wedding.
Reasoning that the only way to get over one man is to get under another, Jon heads out to Wilde’s, the night club on Capitol Hill famous for its hot clientele and hotter bartenders. Jon just wants to get drunk and get laid, and bartender Liam Sable is more than willing to help with both.
Their one night stand turns into a rebound fling, but as Jon moves on with Liam, Craig starts having second thoughts about the break-up. His tiresome antics are the least of Jon and Liam’s worries, though. The least annoying, and the least dangerous…

Jon Beatty had broken up with Craig six months ago and still continues to pine over him. Craig quickly found a girlfriend, proposed, and ask Jon to be his best man. Seriously, Craig has some big nuts!
Craig pushes Jon to get on with his life, to meet other men. Jon takes Craig's advice and goes to a club, Wilde, and hooks up with the hot bartender Liam. They are both not looking for a serious relationship.
"I'll be totally honest, though. I'm just coming off this split with my ex, and -" "Don't want any thing serious?" "Exactly." "Then we're a match made in heaven, because that last thing I want right now is anything serious"
Jon and Liam non-relationship begins to develop to something more.When Craig finds out that Jon has met someone he reacts like a jealous lover. Jon soon realized that his relationship with Craig was flawed. He starts to see beyond his rose colored glasses and sees Craig for who he really is, self-centered, self-righteous bastard.
As Jon and Liam become a couple, Liam's past rears it's ugly head. Liam needs to let Jon go so he's not hurt by his past.
"I couldn't sit back and let you get hurt because of someone I dragged into your life." His voice dropped, as did his gaze. "Even if it meant I had to hurt your myself."
Can they over come Liam's past? I will tell you there is a happy ending.
I LOVED this story. Both Jon and Liam struggled moving on from their ex's. They struggled with co-dependency and violence issues that made it difficult to move on. That's life, it happens and there is no hiding it. I held back the tears when Liam professed his love, "Why, Liam? He's going to f**king- " " I don't have a choice." He turned around, his eyes wet with tears. "Because I love you too much to let him hurt you." It's that love that gave him strength to be with Jon. Isn't that what love is, to protect and cherish. 5 Beautiful Stars! Thank you L.A.Witt for bringing us Jon and Liam.
