    Summary

    "Booker's eyes are closed, so Nile quietly closes the book and puts it on the armrest. His breathing is even and his face is very relaxed, so she assumes he's fallen asleep. She gently cards her fingers through his hair, over and over again and lets her mind wander. It's funny, she thinks, they're not doing anything, they're not even talking and yet she feels so content, so fuzzy on the inside. It's the domesticity, she thinks and smiles goofily."

    OR: the one with more heartfelt conversations and a thoughtful gift.

    Summary

    A sense of overwhelming dread and confusion hung in the pit of his gut. He covered Andy’s hand with his own, leaning forward to catch her gaze. Andy finally looked up at him and swore at whatever she saw there.

    “You really don’t know,” she said finally.

    “Know what? I know that I got blown up yesterday, and that everything hurts. I know you’re acting weird; what I don’t know is where my husband is,” Joe answered, trying to keep his voice even.

    “He’s somewhere at the bottom of the ocean,” Andy said with an explosive, shaky breath, “where he’s been for the last few hundred years.”

    -

    Joe dies on a mission, and wakes up in another reality.

    Summary

    Nile Freeman woke up from death to find herself in a new world. New rules, new possibilities. New fears. And so much time, more time than she can even imagine, let alone plan for. What does she want to do — who does she want to be?

    Turns out she's about to be living in the same city as another immortal considering the same questions as he rebuilds his life from the ashes of trauma and his own terrible decisions.

    Or, I just really need Booker to read Edward Said and Gloria Anzaldúa and then go down on Nile, ok?

    Summary

    They say if you give yourself to God before you die, he will absolve you of your sins and accept you into heaven.

    Well, the earth is giving itself to the sea, soil slowly eroding into the rising water, and Joe is giving himself to Nicky - everything is salt and silt and seafoam eyes, until the pleasure swallows him whole.

    It is shirk, and Joe does not care. Not when Nicky is touching him, is turning him inside out with his touch, with his fingers opening him up. Every stroke pulls a gasp from his lips, shifting his hips up to get more.

    Summary

    “We can help you,” Joe pleads. He is always so strong, so emotional. Nile has stopped unpacking, frozen where she’s sitting on the pristine, white couch of the sterile apartment Copley found for them on short notice. She’s staring at Joe as if seeing him for the first time, and honestly, she is. “Book — we can help you. Please, tell us, let us know what we can do —“

    “No,” Booker says. He shakes his head. He’s looking between Joe and Nicky, at the space deliberately put between them, at the space he put there. “No, I can’t. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”

    Mi amore,” Nicky tries, reaching out again to Joe. Andy can see the streaks of blood on his arms, his cheek, caking the back of his head. He’d been shot, Joe said. You shot Nicky. You shouldn’t have done that.

    Summary

    "It's a thing they started almost three months ago, after two back-to-back missions that had been.. complicated, for lack of a better word. The kind that generally leaves them with a bitter taste in their mouths and slightly less faith in humanity. They had decided that once a month they would spend one night just winding down and having fun but the gist would be that each of them would have their turn in deciding how exactly that night would be spent."

    OR: Nile's night of wild fun.

    Summary

    "He shouldn’t want Yusuf’s cock in his mouth, shouldn’t want to take Yusuf’s knot, to bury his face into Yusuf’s neck and take him apart.

    But the sweet scent of omega never appealed to him. He only found himself rousing at night, thinking of brawling with another alpha, of their cocks rubbing up against each other, marking each other with their release. More recently, he dreams of Yusuf’s smile, his canines sinking into Nicolò’s neck, murmuring praise into his ear while he fucks him-"

    Summary

    " 'It's my job to take care of you,' he snaps, lifting his left hand and wiggling his fingers to show her his wedding band.

    'No, it's not!' Nile roars. 'Your job,' she continues, lifting her own left hand and showing him her wedding band, 'is to be my partner. I need you next to me. Not in front of me, not behind me, next to me!' "

    OR: Nile's 101 on how to handle Booker when he's being a reckless idiot AND bottling things up.

    Summary

    "Somewhere in the depths of her heart Nile knows this entire thing is fully reciprocated but maybe it's just not the time yet. Or maybe she's a coward. Either way, it doesn't mean she can't enjoy the ride and the entire notion makes so much sense that it feels like all the haze around her brain is slowly lifting."

    Summary

    Leaning over, James planted a quick kiss on Booker’s forehead. “Maybe I should just tell you how every day since I’ve met you has allowed me to see the brighter things in life. Would that make you change your mind?”

    “Hmm, I might need a little more proof.”

    “Very well.” James let go of his hair and let his fingers trace Booker’s ear, playing with the earlobe and caressing him softly. “If I were to tell you that the day my friendly feelings towards you turned into something deeper was one of the best days of my life, would that suffice?”

    " 'I see. So who goes undercover?'

    'You and Nile,' Andy says nonchalantly.

    'Ok, so what are we playing? Security? Catering? Bartenders?' Nile asks curiously.

    'Happy couple, guests from the bride's side.' "

    " 'Anything?' she chuckles. 'That's very courageous. Or reckless.'

    'Sweetheart, we've been making out on this couch for the past twenty minutes and I feel like I'm on fire. At this point there's nothing you could suggest that would turn me off.' "
