Could this be the end of the love that Quinn and Rory fought so hard to hold onto?
Quinn Maxwell and Rory Sinclair are celebrating their lives as newlyweds. Quinn, the tough center of the Detroit Devastators, and Rory, a shrewd businessman who won't take no for an answer, are reveling in wedded bliss.
All that changes when Rory's mother takes an interest in the marriage she was against from the beginning. She never wanted to believe her child was gay, and she wants to make sure that Quinn doesn't stick around long enough to cause any problems. She will stop at nothing to destroy her son's marriage, even if it means destroying his happiness as well.
As the couple struggles through the hard times Rory's mother presents for them, they find that they are stronger together than they could ever be apart, but will it be enough?

The floor beneath Rory's feet began to thump, and he raised his head off the table, trying to determine exactly what was happening. He was sure it wasn't an earthquake in the middle of Michigan. The large basement in the home he and Quinn shared was now a workout room so Quinn could keep up with the workouts he needed to compete as center for the Detroit Devastators. Quinn was often holed up in the room, playing music as loudly as possible and burying himself in his workout.
To say that Quinn was competitive was being mild. It was like grouping house cats with lions by comparison. When it came to making sure that he was ready for the season, Quinn went a little overboard sometimes, but it made Rory love his spirit even more. That dedication spilled over into their relationship and made Rory feel secure. Quinn was trustworthy to a fault.
Pushing away from the table, Rory picked up his phone and tucked it in his pocket, heading for the stairs to the basement. If there was anything that could lift his spirits, it was watching Quinn workout. The view of rippling muscles under sweaty skin was better than any landscape painting by the masters.
I can't stand it, I know you planned it, but I'm gonna set it straight, this Watergate.
Rory let a smile part his lips as he started to sing along to Sabotage by the Beastie Boys. There were few songs that really got Quinn pumped and Rory knew this one was high on the list. The thumping beat rose to an almost deafening crescendo as Rory hit the bottom of the stairs. Rory could feel the rhythm inside his chest.
Standing in the middle of the room, wearing nothing but a pair of tight spandex shorts, was the love of his life, Quinn. The football player was busy doing lunges with large barbells in each hand. Rory knew it was to give him explosive power off the line. That only came through legs that were solid. Quinn was solid all over.
Rory stood back and admired Quinn's muscles that contracted and elongated with each lunge. His skin seemed to ripple as the center performed each of the required movements with an ease that only someone in top physical condition could do.
Damn, that boy was hot.
Quinn smiled at him in the mirror, but didn't stop working. Rory admired the perseverance the other man had. Not even a spinal injury stopped him when no one thought Quinn would ever play again. If Rory had half the work ethic Quinn did, his business would be growing furiously. Right now he just wanted to revel in the new life they'd created together; business could come later.
It was the most amazing thing Rory had ever been a part of and he didn't want anyone to ruin it, including his mother.
