Brian Kinney can come and go as he pleases, do what he wants, when he wants with who he wants. And now he's about to enter fatherhood with his best friend Lindsay and her wife Mel, who despite their earlier rocky start, are close. However, a few spanners are thrown into his world. Lindsay's grasping friend Dusty is turning her head. Michael's callousness towards Ben is turning his stomach and Claire's cruelty towards his nephews, especially Peter, is bringing back bad memories. When all three situations start to implode, Justin Taylor’s return further messes with his equilibrium. The question Brian has to honestly answer is he the last or the best thing he needs?
Spoilt little rich girl Lindsay Peterson gets everything she wants, when she wants it; but now she has something she doesn't want, a surprise half brother called Justin Taylor, who stands between her and their late father's estate. As well as getting her for a sister, Justin has another problem in the form of his best friend, Michael Novotny. They met in art class where Justin was a teacher's assistant, and became fast and best friends. One drunken night, however, they made a deal that if by the time Justin reached 28 and Michael 35 and if neither of them were in a relationship, they would marry. Speaking of marrying, Lindsay wants to marry her best friend, the gorgeous but repressed Brian Kinney...who Justin takes one look at and wants for himself - who will win? The sister? The brother? Or the wannabe lover?

It’s now 2019, and Brian Kinney is back in Pittsburgh. He left eight years ago on the eve of his 30th birthday for New York; all that remained in his loft were his clothes, mobile, and a video making his feelings for his family and friends clear. They couldn’t understand where this had come from, all efforts to contact him were rebuffed. Lindsay and Michael were especially devastated, Lindsay wanted to tell him about their baby and Michael was going to take his heart and courage in both hands and profess his love for Brian.
So why is he back and what does Vic’s nursing assistant Justin Taylor have to do with it? .
What if there was more to the story behind Brian’s ‘first time’ in the shower with his gym teacher? What if there’s a darkness in his past that perhaps even his Sunshine can’t penetrate? And what if that darkness was suddenly exposed, tearing Brian’s life apart? Will Justin be able to hold them both together while Brian fights with the demons in his mind?

With 2,500 miles between them and completely separate lives, the odds are stacked against them. Yet here they are, still talking and trying to make this work. They should have tied this up on New Year's Eve, at the absolute latest, even though it makes Molly's chest hurt to even think that. It would have been better for both of them. They could have avoided all of this pining.
Flip a coin... any coin! But what happens when two sides of the same coin meet? Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor are about to find out. And what happens when the two aloof men find themselves breaking all of their self-imposed rules? Guaranteed mayhem!

After having been missing for a week, Brian shows up at the Diner with no memory of where he’s been. Over the course of the night he starts to recall flashes of what’s happened to him and realizes that there’s another young man still missing and he’s the only one who can help the boy. The question is, will Brian remember in time to rescue the lost one?
