Ever since Malachi’s best friend Daniel confessed to being gay, Malachi’s wondered if their friendship could ever cross over into something more. But he’s never been brave enough to take the steps to find out.

Daniel has always been in love with Malachi. But telling his best friend is too risky. Their friendship is the only relationship that’s ever really mattered to him, and he couldn’t handle it if he lost them both.
Courage doesn’t come easy when the stakes are this high, and it’s going to take a leap of faith before these cowboys get their happily ever after.
