    Summary

    The problem, Steve thinks, isn’t so much his motorcycle giving up the ghost on a lonely stretch of highway through a lonely stretch of the country. He doesn’t mind stretching his legs or the prospect of hitchhiking. 

    The problem is the roiling black blanket of storm clouds slowly spreading itself over the landscape headed his direction…

    Steve Rogers is looking to hitch on a highway abandoned by everyone smart enough to avoid a looming storm. Bucky Barnes is the professional storm chaser who offers him a ride.

    It gets more complicated from there.

    Summary

    “Welcome to Barnes’ Bewitching Bakes. I’m Bucky.” The man takes his hand and gives it a shake, his palm large and warm against his own.

    “Steve,” he says, and Bucky hums. He looks like a Steve.

    Steve is plagued by sleepless nights and nightmares of a world long gone. A recommendation from a friend leads him to kitchen witch Bucky's bakery. He soon realizes that maybe it's not the sleeping charms he keeps coming back for.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes: millennial, hot mess ("If you subtract the hot and triple the mess," his best friend Darcy chimes from somewhere without knowing why), lover of animals, social justice warrior, complete dominator at board games, and intense farmer market connoisseur. Or so reads his okcupid profile.

    He's just a man living his best life in Washington DC, fighting for the underdog, and making terrible decisions with his bffl.

    Then his (rather average) world collides with an Extremely Terribly Very Gorgeous Man.

    Summary

    “Can I help you find something?” Nicky hears, not bothering to look up.

    “I’d like to pick up something for my Nonna,” he replies.

    “You must be Nicolò! I recognize your voice.”

    Nicky looks up, and the most gorgeous man he has ever seen in person is smiling widely at him from behind the counter, causing deep dimples to show through the scruff of his tightly cropped beard. He has freckles dotting his sharp cheekbones and his nose, his eyes are the glossiest, shining brown, his hair is a riot of stunning dark, tight curls, and all Nicky can do is stare at him and think OH.

    **
    On the first day of his summer break, Nicky gets a dreaded phone call about his beloved Nonna: she’s taken a fall in her favorite bakery in Malta and broken her hip. Nicky takes a sabbatical from his job as a professor and heads to Valletta to help with her recovery. He goes to the bakery to thank the owner, Joe, for helping his Nonna and finds himself instantly drawn to the man. The feeling is mutual, but both of them agree that since Nicky will only be in town for six months, it would be best if they kept things casual. After all, neither of them wants to get their heart broken when Nicky goes back home to Genoa.

    Summary

    Nicky has to clear his throat before he speaks again. Joe clenches his fist triumphantly as casually as he can. 
    ‘You can’t boil an egg, but you think you can cook mushroom risotto?’ 
    Joe playfully bashes Nicky’s shoulder with the back of his hand. It definitely isn’t a thinly-veiled excuse to finally touch his shoulders. 
    ‘It’s only six steps, Nicky, it can’t be that bad.’ 
    Nicky shudders, and Joe tells himself it was in reaction to finally being touched by him, and not in disgust at what he said.

    Joe has a crush on his Hello Fresh delivery person. Nicky just wants Joe to have an actually edible meal for once, even if he has to make it himself.
