initiation185When college crew newbie Eric is first propositioned by his teammates, he panics. The other boys are attractive, sure, but they’re also a little scary. Golden boy Ashley holds the power to make or break his dreams. Quiet, mischievous Mark hides a core of wickedness Eric has barely glimpsed. And then there’s Tanner, striving to lure Eric back in when doubt gets the better of him.

Caught between his fear and fascination for the boys, Eric can only fight his desire to belong for so long. But Eric has been burned before and knows that to be outnumbered is a risk. Discovering what it means to be wanted may mean more than sitting safely on the sidelines, if he can muster the courage.
