    Summary

    “Do you wear a lot of blue?” she asks. Cindy, her name tag says.

    She hands Patrick a pair of dark gray wire-frame glasses which he slides on until they hook behind his ears. And it’s not like—well everyone who knows him knows he likes blue. But he feels a little unsettled that this stranger picks up on it, like at she can see his whole life contained within the frames around his eyes.

    “Uh, yeah. I guess so,” Patrick says, taking them off again. This pair, like all the others she has given him, is exactly right and completely wrong.

    Or, Patrick gets glasses and thinks about identity. David helps.

    Summary

    “Are you...Patrick?” It doesn’t make sense, but then again, nothing about Ray’s businesses makes much sense.

    To be honest, there’s not a lot about David’s life that makes sense these days.

    The kid giggles suddenly, like David has said something funny instead of being quite possibly the only rational human in the entire building. “I’m Jamie,” they say. “Patrick’s my dad.

    Summary

    Patrick Brewer of all people sliding into his DM's is intriguing.

    Because just two days ago, David stumbled across Patrick Brewer's Raya profile.

    He remembers a single black-and-white photo of a clean-cut looking guy, wearing a baseball cap and laughing, his face turned away from the camera so it's seen mostly in profile. He had a great smile. David was struck by the way his eyes crinkled in the corners, by how genuine he looked.

    PATRICK, 30

    David swiped right without reading further.

    PROFILE NOT FOUND.

    Okay...

    ---

    Patrick Brewer, the MVP of last year's World Series and a viral social media star, has a bit of a crush on David Rose, a gallerist living in New York City and occasional guest star on his sister's reality show. He convinces himself to do something about it - after all, he's only in town to play the Yankees for a few nights.

    Summary

    The moment he saw David, Patrick's heart started pounding. Hey, I think I’m in love with you felt dangerously close to being something he wanted to say out loud, even though he knew it would be a terrible idea. Especially this early on. Especially with his business partner. Especially because he’d only recently figured out the whole liking other men thing. Especially because now he was officially—having sex—with the other men. Man. With David. This is fast, he thought.

When Yusuf leaves New York to put down roots for himself in the Idaho Territory, he's not sure if he's trying to escape or seeking out his future. What he finds will either grant him freedom, or it will drive him back east for good.
