    It's kind of about fake dating and it's kind of about friendship and it's mostly about casual revelations that I spent time in Los Angeles, because that's my wheelhouse. Some day there will be a Sarchengsey installment, probably.

    Summary

    "They don't want it to be real," Laurent says. He touches lightly, with his fingertips, where he's written LOVE WINS. "They want us to sell them a fantasy, and they want just enough reality that they can pretend it might happen to them, one day."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Laurent catches Jokaste looking at Damen's bare forearms--she turns away from the camera to cough delicately into her wrist, and uses the motion to send Laurent a wink--and then catches Nikandros looking at Laurent as though he's memorising his face to describe to a police sketch artist. Laurent throws a sweet smile back, and has the satisfaction of seeing the man's expression waver. Nikandros can think whatever he wants of Laurent and his trashy, sensationalist, exploitative show. Laurent's gut has a sense for ratings, and his are going to be great.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The look in Declan's eyes was heated and Adam all but felt drunk on the idea that Declan Lynch wanted him, and the last thing in the world he wanted was to see that look turn into disdain, to see Declan sneer and change his mind and throw him out.

    Summary

    Your younger brother stares at you, completely affronted by your presence. “Helen,” he demands, and already you can tell that 300 Fox Way has had an effect on him, made him indecorous in front of company. “What are you doing here?”

    “I came to meet a friend, Richard,” you say, and bare your dazzlingly straight teeth in a smile. You think 300 Fox Way is having an effect on you, too.

    300 Fox Way is exactly what you expected, because you lowered your expectations as far as possible two weeks in advance.
