    Summary

    “Can I help you find something?” Nicky hears, not bothering to look up.

    “I’d like to pick up something for my Nonna,” he replies.

    “You must be Nicolò! I recognize your voice.”

    Nicky looks up, and the most gorgeous man he has ever seen in person is smiling widely at him from behind the counter, causing deep dimples to show through the scruff of his tightly cropped beard. He has freckles dotting his sharp cheekbones and his nose, his eyes are the glossiest, shining brown, his hair is a riot of stunning dark, tight curls, and all Nicky can do is stare at him and think OH.

    **
    On the first day of his summer break, Nicky gets a dreaded phone call about his beloved Nonna: she’s taken a fall in her favorite bakery in Malta and broken her hip. Nicky takes a sabbatical from his job as a professor and heads to Valletta to help with her recovery. He goes to the bakery to thank the owner, Joe, for helping his Nonna and finds himself instantly drawn to the man. The feeling is mutual, but both of them agree that since Nicky will only be in town for six months, it would be best if they kept things casual. After all, neither of them wants to get their heart broken when Nicky goes back home to Genoa.

    Summary

    After the end of his five year marriage, Joe finds himself depressed and unable to write or paint. It takes Andy bursting into his room and shoving a ticket for “Gay and Away”, a singles tour through Tuscany.

    Joe doesn't mean to buy the 300 year old villa, but he's here and heartbroken, and maybe the house will help.

    The guy helping him with the renovation, Nicolo, sure doesn't hurt.

    Summary

    It’s not lost on her that technically, her dating pool is now exactly one person, if she wants to be with somebody who won’t die on her. Still, “you’re my only option” is miles away from being a good enough reason to give it a shot.
