Foundation of Trust

(The fifth book in the Cost of Repairs series)
A novel by

David Weller thought he had it all—a loving partner who gave him a ring, a “stepson” he adored, a steady job he didn't hate, and so much hope for their future. But in the wake of a devastating diagnosis, everything came crashing down. Four years after Owen dumped him, David is still sifting through the rubble of his life. His catering partnership is the only thing keeping him afloat during the day, while his nights are filled with dangerous sexual hookups and very bad decisions. And then the last person he ever expected to see again walks back into his life and changes everything.

Owen Hart's single biggest regret is the way in which he and his son Michael were forced to leave David behind—no explanations, no chance to make it right. Until now. Finally free of eight years of fear and lies, Owen's back for the only man he's ever truly loved. Seeing David again is as joyful as it is heartbreaking, because David is wounded in both body and soul, and it's all Owen's fault.

An incendiary encounter in a club proves their connection hasn't diminished over the years, but David's wounds run deeper than Owen's deception. His inability to forgive Owen is fueled by a decade-old betrayal that David must first forgive if he ever hopes to have a second chance with Owen.
