    Summary

    An office at two-thirty in the afternoon is a particular flavor of Hell. The fresh promise of the morning is far behind, the end of the day seems forever away, and gone is the escapist enjoyment of lunch to look forward to. 

    It's enough to drag down the most ebullient and enthusiastic worker, let alone a tired, frustrated, meeting-sore CEO. So when the phone rings in the middle of his two o'clock meeting with the most terminally boring department head in the company, Joe doesn't even glance at the display screen.

    Joe sees the name just as he's snatching up the phone before it can stop ringing. People outside of his senior executives don't usually call him directly, so he's curious.

    "Mister Genova, how can I help you today?"

    Summary

    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    “Who the heck is Nicolo?” Joe said under his breath, as he clicked on the new follower.

    “Wait- what?” Quynh snatched Joe’s phone out of his hands.

    “Hey!” Joe said in protest but didn’t make any moves to grab it back.

    “Oh my god! That’s him! That’s Nicky!” Quynh said, excitedly.

    “What?” Joe practically shouted.

    “Look, look, look!” Quynh squealed. 

    Joe leaned in as Quynh held his phone in front of the two of them, his heart was already beating faster than it had any right to. He hadn’t even seen the guy yet. Maybe Booker was right, he really did need to get laid.
