BLURB: Professionally, Dr. Alec Johnson has almost reached his goals. As this year’s recipient of a humanitarian award with his ex, Dr. Tyler Hall, Alec’s work with the homeless is about to be recognized. Unfortunately, his personal life sucks because now he has to attend several events alongside Tyler—with his ex’s new boyfriend in tow. In an attempt to lift his mood and break out of his rut, Alec purchases a motorcycle he has no idea how to start.
Dylan Booth doesn't have time for Dr. Clueless and his fickle 1964 Harley, but the cocky mechanic can’t say no to the request for help. Having spent his teen years on the streets, and losing his best friend to HIV, Dylan decides teaching the do-gooder how to ride is the least he can do. But watching Alec flounder in his ex's company throws Dylan into protector mode, and the confirmed hetero introduces himself as Alec's new boyfriend.
The ex suspects Dylan is lying.
Alec claims Dylan’s plan is insane.
And Dylan’s not sure he can fake being gay.

But he’s a master bullshitter, and the phony PDA soon turns ultra-hot. Alec can’t afford to get attached, and Dylan’s learned everyone eventually leaves. Unfortunately, playing the backup boyfriend is starting to feel way too real.

REVIEW: When your heart is broken by the one so called love of your life what do you do? Well of course you buy an unreliable motorcycle and lie, lie to the ex love just so they don't see how low you've actually fallen. Working daily with your ex is already hurting Alec but knowing that his ex, Tyler has moved on and will be bringing his new boyfriend to their award banquet makes Alec do weird things. Dylan, the mechanic working on Alec's used motorcycle is pissed at how Alec lets Tyler make him feel worthless so he helps him lie. Pretending to be Alec's new boyfriend turns out to be more than a lie for either of them. One man is openly gay and one man doesn't know what's happening when his straight man thoughts turn out to be not so straight. Can Dylan continue to pretend he doesn't have true feelings for Alec when the truth about their lie comes out?
