New York City Vice Detective Evan Cerelli has lost his wife in a car accident. She was his high school sweetheart, the only person he ever loved and the first and only person he ever slept with. He’s trying to get on with his life, build a life for his children, but is devastated by the loss and sinking. Former Homicide Detective Matt Haight has always been a ladies’ man, all sex with no commitment. He was pushed out of the police force after he tried to bring down a bad cop. He is bitter, depressed, going through a midlife crisis, not sure where his life is headed and is also sinking. The two find friendship in the bottom of a shared bottle. When the friendship turns to lust and then love, it shakes two straight men to the core and flips their lives inside out as they attempt to build a relationship and a life together.
