Gabriel Acosta can’t believe what’s happening right in front of him. His best friend, Holden Brochu, is being left at the altar by his fiancé. Sean doesn’t want to marry Holden, which becomes even more evident when Gabriel drags him to the venue and then watches, in horror, as he turns around and runs away from his very own wedding and groom.
Holden is stunned and seems devastated. Gabriel, not quite knowing what to do, tries to care for Holden as recovers from the shock. But the moment that he takes his eyes off him, Holden practically disappears. Gabriel doesn’t see him again until two weeks later, when he’s had time to really think about why he’s so upset about the wedding and exactly why he missed his best friend so much.
Holden Brochu wasn’t that excited for his wedding, but he did at least expect it to happen. When it doesn’t, he’s not quite sure what to do. His natural reaction is to hide, so that’s exactly what he does. He doesn’t realize that he’s going to hurt his friends and family in the process. But once he’s done brooding, he comes back with a brilliant revenge plan. The only problem is that it involves his best friend’s Gabriel cooperation. By going for it, though, they might both be getting more than they bargained for, in more ways than one…
