    Summary

    When Bitty dreams, he dreams of water, of drowning, of going under for the second, third, fourth time. He dreams in vibrant colour. He dreams of fists and feet and bruises that bloom the colour of summer ripe berries on pale pale skin.

    Jack dreams in black and white. He dreams of snow, white landscapes of his youth. He dreams of vials and silver needles, silver skate blades. He dreams of water, too, but it’s frozen and unforgiving. When Jack dreams, he dreams of ice, above and below him.

    //

    “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water,” Bitty says this odd thing in his soft, rounded drawl and Jack can’t help but smile. He always smiles when he’s around Bitty.

    “Yeah?” he says. “You believe that?”

    Bitty looks at him, eyes wide and clear and dark like the depths of an ocean Jack will never see, not in this lifetime. Jack’s water is slate grey, murky, Lakes Superior and Ontario, cold and unforgiving. Nothing like the warmth and kindness of Bitty at all.

    “Yeah,” Bitty says, voice gone rough like sand. “It’s what ties us together, you and me. It brought us together, here, and that’s the best kind of magic there is, sweetheart.”

    Summary

    After the events at St. Basil’s, Rose Hathaway had to make one of the biggest decisions of her life — comply with Lissa’s wishes and return to Court, a get-out-of-jail free card to ending her assignment early, or go against orders and stay in Russia in order to follow her heart. Having chosen the latter, Rose now faces a host of challenges she hadn’t anticipated upon arriving in Baia months ago, including the problems she must contend with as a result of having chosen love over duty.

    And everyone remembers that Rose is only on assignment as punishment for what happened to Victor Dashkov…well, everyone except for Rose herself.

    Summary

    “It is your professional duty to ogle the booty,” Shitty says solemnly. “Honestly, brah, you have not lived until you’ve seen Jack Zimmermann’s jeans try to contain his ass when he bends over to pick something up. And this is a construction zone, Bits. He has to pick stuff up all the time.”

    +++

    Jack and Kent are the ridiculously handsome house-renovating married retired hockey players that’ve been making HGTV an absolutely stupid amount of money with their new show.

    And Eric Bittle just got hired to be their show’s caterer.

    Summary

    Four years after graduating from Samwell, Nursey can honestly say he loves his life.
    He just finished his third novel. He eats like a somewhat responsible adult. He lives in a small two-bedroom apartment with his best friend, who cooks them fancy Instagram recipes for dinner and binges new Netflix series with Nursey on the couch and knows how to deal with the anxious voice in Nursey's head better than anyone (especially Nursey).
    And yeah, Nursey is kind of totally in love with Dex, has been for going on five years thereabouts, and all of Nursey's friends and family are adamant that the feelings are reciprocated and Nursey should just go for it , but, well. He and Dex have a good thing going, and maybe something romantic could be good, too, but the prospect of ruining what they have is terrifying enough for Nursey to let things just stay the same.
    Then there's a car accident, a transfer of guardianship, and a little baby girl with the widest smile Nursey has ever seen, and the change becomes inevitable.
