Summary

It’s been six years since Marcus Peterson and Reuben Kelly broke up, but they’ve made it work as friends and coworkers. That is until a few too many drinks at the company Christmas party leads to a night they both regret.

Eight awkward weeks later, when their boss - Reuben’s dad - needs someone to fill in at a trade show, Marcus and Reuben find themselves in close confines. A road trip, a booth, a hotel room...and that’s before the weather goes south.

There’s no escape from each other, and there’s no ignoring the guilt, the awkwardness...and the spark that desperately wants to come back to life; because if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed after all this time, it’s how they feel about each other. 

But if they can’t cut through all the barriers keeping them apart, this old flame will go out for good.
