    Summary

    “I’m talking to the most handsome man in the room,” Joe says, voice like smooth whiskey. When Nicky checks behind him, Joe laughs. “Yes, you.”

    Nicky wonders briefly if Joe’s a police detective and Nicky’s been made. Maybe he should just walk right out the door and forget this job altogether.

    But.

    Joe is burning hot in that tuxedo, and Nicky likes to play with fire.

    “I’m Nicky.”

    Summary

    He does not think about the way Yusuf’s wet hair curls at the nape of his neck, or how the flickering candlelight gives Yusuf a glow, like he has taken the sun itself and drawn it behind his ribs.

    Summary

    Joe sees him across the room. Through the flickering lights and beyond the haze of the fog machine. Past the swaying, sweaty bodies on the dance floor.

    Tall and thin, with wide shoulders. He’s sitting in a corner booth, elbow on the table beside an open book. Chin in his hand, he’s looking down - reading.

    Joe is half in love with him already.

    Summary

    Nicky keeps feeling like something’s missing. Like he’s forgotten the name of an important thing and it’s sitting, impatient, at the tip of his tongue. He can’t recall. Or he doesn’t know. It’s all terribly confusing, and so, so frustrating.

    Summary

    None of Joe’s smiles or laughs or well-wishes work on Nicky. He comes in with a frown, says nothing more than his order to Joe and a quick grazie before he all but sprints out the door.

    It’s maddening.
