Just a few quick warnings, this is a boyxboyxboy book so if you don't like it leave, this is a spin off but can be read as a stand alone (you can read Loving the Fighter if you want to read the before), I am dyslexic so don't mind small errors.
For first time readers here is a little break down of everyone.

Andrew has been a therapist at Patrick's camp ever since he graduated college. He attempted to work for other therapist groups but since he has a few criminal charges, places like that were hesitant to let him join. He meets Patrick at random and they happened to start talking. Andrew mentioned that he just graduated and got his degree but was having trouble getting a job so Patrick offered him a job at camp and he's been there ever since.

Jem leads a powerful gang and has since he was only 19 years old. He joined the gang when he was 17 and rose through the ranks quickly until he was the second in command. As it turned out, the original leader of this gang was not a good man. He allowed non-consensual prostitution, child abuse, and often killed his followers at random as a scare tactic during private interrogations. When Jem learned this he killed the man without a second thought and took over the gang.
After Jem took over the gang he took in a kid named Liam, who was only 14 at the time. When Patrick got wind that he was allowing minors in his gang, he started going after Jem with everything he had. After years of trying to pin anything on him, Jem ended up reaching out to him and agreed to hand over all his minors in exchange for Patrick to stop snooping around.
Liam got out of camp only recently and since then he has been getting closer to both Andrew and Patrick for Liam's sake.
