The Carpenter and the Actor
Jason is hiding out in Ellery, grief-stricken and unable to trust anyone, until Kieran shows him it’s okay to let go.
Desperate to escape the relentless pursuit of paparazzi following his brother's death, actor Jason seeks refuge in the familiar embrace of his home town of Ellery. All he wants is peace and to find anonymity within the secluded tourist cabins of Ellery Mountain during its off-season, craving a respite from the unrelenting scrutiny of the outside world.
Enter Kieran, a determined man who knows precisely what he wants: the captivating actor Jason, tied up, surrendering to his desires, and pleading for more. Their passionate encounters quickly turn to love but scarred by his past and burdened by the fear of betrayal, Jason panics. Even in each other's arms, Jason can’t find the trust he needs, and all too soon it’s time for him to leave. Unless Kieran can get him to stay.
