    “George says you’re the next Jack,” Kent says, voice low enough to cut under the crickets. “But there’s no next Jack, is there? You’re the next blond who tries not to die behind him.”

    Summary

    It’s Thanksgiving, two years after The Incident, and Justin is praying for Shitty to finally call so he’ll get out of this godawful dinner with the in-laws.

    “Stop calling it The Incident,” Holster whispers under his breath. They’re hiding out in the backyard, which is exactly how Justin figured this would go. “You got catfished and discovered your dream career in body disposal.”

    Summary

    Standing in a room of his peers who hardly lifted a finger to help Thomas, James says, “All that you love can be taken from you. But when it’s taken away, you’re still there. When you feel like you have nothing left, know this: you still have your fight, and it does keep you warm at night.”

    He doesn’t stay for the applause.

    Summary

    It’s hard to be the thing he wants. It’s even harder when he doesn’t look at her like she’s a thing, when his hands grip her thighs like the edges of a pedestal so he can bring her down to his level. When he decides to remind her that the thing between them isn’t hunger, isn’t sweet, isn’t avoidable.

    Charles gets to see her. She regrets a lot of things, but not that. God help her, not that.

    Summary

    St. Gerebrand, pray for your sinners. Today I learned new meanings: bloodbath, bloodthirsty. Bright red on his clean knuckles, the Rhine an ashy prayer in our mouths; I confess, I closed my eyes for the spray that meant a full night's sleep with him against me.

    Summary

    After Jack, even the weight of the hockey world’s combined expectations felt like something to brace against. Steadying. When he told Kelly that he’ll be fine, a month into his first regular season, she believed him. He doesn’t know why she cried, but she believed him.
