The only thing Mac wants is money. Also dignity. Respect. And maybe companionship.
He’s in trouble.
Mac can no longer deny how much he needs The Gym—and not just for the money. He’s growing ever closer to his roommate, he’s intrigued by his friends, and he’s fixated on his boss in a way that makes him super uncomfortable.
Now that he’s taking clients, he finds even some of them tug at the heartstrings he would have sworn he didn’t have.
It’s supposed to be just a job, but it’s turning into something that feels a hell of a lot more like a family. And not the dysfunctional kind Mac had as a kid, but the kind that supports each other and wants everyone to be happy.
And the worst part of it all? He wants this tentative sense of belonging more than he ever could have imagined.
