I ran away when I was fifteen and never looked back. I built a new life: good friends, wild adventures, and an endless parade of gorgeous women. But then I got a call that changed everything; a call that told me it was time to go back and face my demons.

My only saving grace was that he was only in town for a few days.
But when I found myself in a situation and he was the only one who had any answers, well, let’s just say… things got complicated…
