    Summary

    It wasn’t that Jack was an unreasonable person, of course. He understood how things were supposed to work, that there was an order to them, and that deviations from that order led to problems that ranged from “Top NHL Draft Prospect Drops Out of Hockey, Drops in to Rehab” to “this might be a little hard to explain.” It was just that Eric Bittle made him forget that order.

    Summary

    "Dude, we've got an over-competitive golf dad, a badass art freak, a pre-med lax bro on the verge of a breakdown, a chronically naked rugby player, a beat-boxing giant, and an itty-bitty, baking figure skater - there's no way we came together accidentally. This was fate."

    "Or it's the normal progression of human beings making friends. Chill out, bro."

     

    (Or, the one where no one plays hockey, but it still manages to bring them all together.)

    Summary

    Bitty is in Annie’s, bent over his textbooks and wondering, not for the first time, why he decided to take French as a language (oh yes, it’s because so many old recipes are written in French, he’s going abroad there to study food history, can’t wait for the summer; half of fall and then winter semester until he goes, but that doesn’t help him now does it) , when he hears someone clear their throat.

    “Excuse me, is this seat taken?”

    Oh boy.

    Eric doesn’t even bother lifting up his head. “Sorry, not a girl and not interested.”

    Summary

    Eric Bittle's To-Do List:

    1.) Frame Masters in Library and Information Science diploma and send to Mama, because she never understood the lack of sleep and abuse of caffeine, but she sent cookbooks and money for good chocolate, bless her.
    2.) Throw away every last highlighted article, graded paper, and syllabus, because they are no longer needed, thank the sweet Lord.
    3.) Promote the library's new periodic reading series, because it wasn't the capstone project for nothing.
    4.) Harass Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann into taking a picture for @BPLWestEnd to promote the reading of his new children's book, Jacky's Bad Days.
    5.) Do not ogle Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann's ass.
    6.) Fail step five. Repeatedly.

    Summary

    Andrew isn't jealous, he isn't angry, but being apart for one month causes some self-destructive tendencies, shaped into three words he's never said before.
