    Summary

    He sank his fingers into Joe’s curls and felt him release all his body’s tension into the sofa cushions beneath him. He sighed, nuzzling into Nicky’s touch, and he grinned. It was warm and bright— just for Joe, only ever for him— as he zeroed in on the strip of skin under Joe’s eyes and across the delicate bridge of his nose.

    Joe had freckles. Thousands of little pinpricks that dusted his cheeks like a galaxy when he got out in the sun— they framed his eyes and just a couple strayed up onto his forehead.

    They were one of Nicky’s favorite things.

    Summary

    The apology in Nile’s eyes tells Nicky he’s let his expression slip in a way he hasn’t in centuries, his whole broken heart on display.

    Summary

    “Are we friends now?” Joe asks. Nicky reaches up to pat Joe on the back, shifting his weight through his hips so he’s got enough power to push Joe into the water. When Joe comes up, spluttering, hair hanging lank across his face, he stares at Nicky, who looks back at him with a lopsided smile.

    “Now we’re friends.”

     

    Ten years, two best friends, one couch that seems to have its own agenda. Friends-to-lovers with all the trimmings.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.
