Evan has a boyfriend, Erik, who he keeps secret from everyone, including his childhood friend, Davis, who is also gay. However, when Evan and Davis are recruited to join the Chasers, a deceptively dangerous group that promises protection for queer teens, Evan has to choose between his loyalty to Davis and his love for Erik.
Eighteen-year-old Evan and his best friend, Davis, get beaten up for being loners. For being gay. For just being themselves. But as rough as things often seem, at least Evan can take comfort in his sweet, sexy boyfriend Erik – whom he’s kept secret from everyone for almost a year.
Then Evan and Davis are recruited to join the Chasers, a fringe crowd that promises them protection and status. Davis is swept up in the excitement, but Evan is caught between his loyalty to Davis and his love for Erik. Evan’s lied to keep his two worlds separate. Now his lies are about to implode…and destroy the very relationships he’s been trying to protect.
