Braiden and Trey once shared a burning passion for each other when they were younger. Because their fathers were bitter rivals, they had to keep their relationship a secret. Upon turning 18, Braiden wanted to take their relationship public and declare their love for each other to their families.

When they tell Braiden’s father, he goes ballistic and the source regarding the longstanding animosity between the two men is finally revealed. This is a secret so big that it could potentially tear Braiden & Trey’s relationship apart.
