    Summary

    On a scale between one to ten of stupid ideas that Nicky’s had and executed - this was definitely an eleven, but, well… he was desperately in need of release or he would surely murder his boss in the morning.

    “Hey stranger, having trouble sleeping?”

    The voice on the phone is deep, accented, and husky with sleep and causes Nicky to pull the phone from his ear to look at the time. ‘2:45’ it reads in small white print and Nicky feels a wave guilt.

    He sometimes forgot that normal people had normal sleep schedules.

    Summary

    Joe's daughter Saar loves her ballet classes, and looks forward to them every week. Joe looks forward to them because it means he gets to see Nicky, Saar's kind and ridiculously attractive instructor. All of this comes second to the impending chaos of the ballet school's production of Swan Lake: there's costumes to fit, scenery to paint, kids to supervise...

    Summary

    When Nicky was twenty-two, he was in love. With the world, yes, and with his own life, with the way having an Interrail Pass and some money in his pocket made him feel that anything was possible. But most of all, with Joe. With him, love was effortless. They laughed easily, they traveled together well, and they fucked like gods. 

    Nile never knew that version of him, the Nicky so in love that he stole Joe's t-shirt and stuffed it in his backpack, thinking he could wear it to bed and imagine Joe was still holding him. By the time he met her, Nicky had not only stopped sleeping in that shirt, he'd long-since shoved it in the back of his bottom drawer behind a spare blanket. After that, he could almost pretend it never existed.

    Summary

    After the end of his five year marriage, Joe finds himself depressed and unable to write or paint. It takes Andy bursting into his room and shoving a ticket for “Gay and Away”, a singles tour through Tuscany.

    Joe doesn't mean to buy the 300 year old villa, but he's here and heartbroken, and maybe the house will help.

    The guy helping him with the renovation, Nicolo, sure doesn't hurt.
