For years, Valentine "Val" Duveau has been running from the cruelty of his father and the men who work for his father. Each time, he's found and dragged back home. Val's father is determined to make Val a man, even if he has to beat it into him. But Val is just as determined to be free to be whatever and whoever he wants to be in life. He just isn't sure what that is yet. When Val has been working for months in a bar/restaurant, he thinks his father has finally given up on him. His good fortune runs out when a man attacks Val in a back alley. Val's rescuer turns out to none other than Tomas, one of his father's henchman. Resigned to his fate of never escaping, Val follows Tomas back to his rundown apartment.
Tomas has loved Val ever since he first started working for Val's father. He's always kept a woman in his bed, but no one in his heart. Tomas knows how cruel Val's father is, and anyone crossing him will regret it, but Tomas can no longer look the other way because of how Val is treated. When he's sent to bring Val home, Tomas decides it's time to run with him and keep Val safe even if it means his life. But will Val accept Tomas when he finds out Tomas's secret, one that has nothing to do with love?
