A deeply personal, yet candid saga of a gay Secret Service Agent in the Obama era; an agent who was struggling with his own identity, marriage, discrimination and balancing the demands that accompany being assigned to protect the most powerful people in the world

Cory Allen delivers an amusing view into his adventurous life, with culture references, twists and turns of his relationships, and an inside look into the life, as a gay Special Agent in the hyper-masculine career field. Through intense self-reflection he recounts the impacts it had on his life and the hardships imposed by a career in the spotlight.

At the pinnacle of his career, he left the Secret Service to restart his life in California and begin the process of finally being his own person. Struggling to break free from social norms, creating his identity apart from his all- consuming profession, and learning to listen to intuition are at the heart of the memoir.
