    Summary

    Retelling of Like Real People Do from the perspective of Ian.

    In hopes of saving for his future, Ian Gallagher works nights on kestrel, an iOS app specializing in paid sex services. The rules there are pretty simple: appeal to your clientbase, build fantasies, and maintain appropriate boundaries. This is the story of how Ian breaks every damn rule and falls in love with Mickey Milkovich.

    Summary

    After being beaten and dropped at the hospital at the age of 4, Ian is placed into foster care. His abusive and alcoholic father told his siblings he was dead. He is then adopted by a wealthy Senator and his wife, but raised by his nanny. She is the only one that has ever shown him love, other than his siblings, but he thinks they didn't care either because they never tried to find him.

    When he is older, he goes to school to become an equine vet, liking animals more than people. He is highly introverted and avoids talking to people and forming relationships. He gets a job working for a famous race horse owner, Terry Milkovich, who has several winning thoroughbreds. He meets Mickey the horse trainer and develops a crush but keeps it to himself because he doesn't think he is good enough or deserves love. Mickey thinks he is an arrogant prick but slowly starts to see the real Ian and wants to get to know him better. Only problem is Mickey can't act on his feeling because of his homophobic father.

    Thank you in advance to Lynna for being my beta! xo

    I hope you enjoy! xoxo
