Jared worked through his years as an awkward gay teen by always having a sketchbook with him, turning his love of drawing and story telling into a successful career as a graphic novelist. His love/hate relationship with Jensen Ackles, his brother's best friend, insinuates itself into every area of his life, even after years of not seeing each other. When Jared is asked to guest judge during San Antonio's Food and Wine festival, an event Jensen is hosting, their tumultuous relationship comes to a head. Between great food and wine, they are thrust out of the frying pan and into the fire, with emotions and feelings coming to a rolling boil. Question is, will either of them make it through to enjoy dessert?
Jensen Ackles was his own man and nothing like his father and to make sure of that he leaves home as soon as he can to make his own way in the world. When his father dies suddenly and under strange circumstances, Jensen begins a journey that takes him from Cabo up the coast of Mexico to LA in an 85’ yacht he inherited. His instant dislike for the Yacht’s captain, Jared Padalecki, is as intense as the pull of attraction to him is. Things don’t get easier when they determine that Jared holds the key to his father’s strange death and Jensen’s future. Coming to terms with discovering that everything he was running from, turns out to be exactly who he is, is the hardest thing Jensen ever has to face.
