When his friends bet cynical Jerry that he can’t turn sweet Arlo into a player, Jerry might win the bet but lose his heart.

College senior Jerry Helstrom survived a gay childhood in Texas by being fierce and fabulous. At school he gained a reputation as a player and kept his heart so guarded that he’s forgotten he has one.  When his friends bet him he can’t help innocent Arlo Barnes, Jerry takes on the challenge and quickly finds himself drawn to his sexy mentee.

Arlo wants to make up for lost time. He’s been dumped by his only boyfriend and needs help getting himself out there. Enter Jerry Helstrom, player extraordinaire and happy to provide Arlo with some hands-on sex coaching. Jerry encourages Arlo to ask for what he wants in sex and in life, something Arlo struggles with despite his martial-arts black belt. The struggle deepens when Arlo discovers that what—or who—he truly wants is the seemingly unattainable Jerry Helstrom.

Jerry can teach Arlo to play the field, but can Arlo teach Jerry to play for keeps?
