Archer has always wanted what he can’t have—Quinn Dawson. Since the

Everything about them was wrong, the kind of wrong that felt so right.

It was supposed to be one night, but one night is all it takes to make
everything more complicated, and they only have nine short months to sort it
No, none of it mattered. Until it did.
