Desire is a dangerous fuel in this romantic road story. Jack is a lively, intelligent man who is content with drifting through life. He and Monica broke up a long time ago, but after years of silence, her younger brother Tristan reappears in Jack’s life. Tristan talks Jack into a road trip, a trip without a destination, where the point is to keep moving and open oneself up to chance. Together they head off in an old Buick on a quest to conquer their own personal demons. Along the way the pair picks up a seductive young woman named Nuna. From Montreal to Bar Harbor, New York to Louisiana, and Florida to Val d'Or, Necessary Betrayals leads readers into the heart of a warm, heady universe inhabited by funny and touching characters.

Peace comes at a price and sometimes that price means burning bridges. Jack and Monica broke up a long time ago, but there is still something broken inside. After years of silence, the truce is over when Tristan, Monica's younger brother, reappears in Jack's life. Memories may have been buried deep, but there is no escaping the force of erosion.
Tristan talks Jack into a road trip, a trip without a destination, where the point is to keep moving and open oneself up to chance. What follows is a trip and an encounter with Nuna, the young woman with disorientating eyes. But a triangle doesn't always travel easily, desire being a dangerous fuel.
