    Summary

    Nicky always knew his crush on fellow superhero Joe Al-Kaysani, aka Solar Flare, would never come to anything. His identity was a closely guarded secret while Joe's was the exact opposite. That wasn't going to change, no matter how much he secretly wished it could.

    But then his best friend Quynh sets him up on a blind date...with Joe. Suddenly, on top of a game of dating and hidden identities, Nicky has to deal with an influx of weapons into the community and some odd occurences at his day job.

    Life is never dull when operating as a semi-illegal vigilante.

    Summary

    The plan goes thusly: he will find the busiest inn in all of Cairo, and he will ask for a room, and when they inevitably only have one bed to spare, he will shrug and say it can’t be helped, and then he will have Nicolò all to himself, within four safe walls. He will say, “Nicolò, you are the stars that light up my night sky,” or perhaps, “Nicolò, finding you has been like finding safe haven to one lost at sea”, and most crucially, “Nicolò, may I please kiss you?”

    The plan does not work.

    (In which Joe cannot catch a break or get a goshdarn single room at Ye Olde Holiday Inne)

    Summary

    Nicky di Genova, PhD, can’t cook.

    He’s too busy in the lab, researching cancer immunology, for anything other than living off ramen and takeout pizza.

    To salvage his reputation in front of his best friend, Nile, he tries to learn how to cook something—anything—and stumbles across the YouTube channel of an amazingly talented and gorgeous chef named Joe. Inspired by Joe’s videos, Nicky leaves a comment, never dreaming that their lives might be on a collision course and he’ll get to meet Joe in person...

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”
