    Summary

    "I'm certain this is not what you wanted from a marriage any more than I did."

    For a second, Joe is on the receiving end of the most intense stare he's ever seen. He almost dares to hope for an argument, something unexpected, then his husband blinks, and he's back to being that blank-faced stranger Joe first met earlier that day. "On the contrary. An advantageous match is all a prince should ever want."

    It was too much to hope that Nicolò might possess wit or charm that he felt free to express behind closed doors. Joe tries to hide a sigh. On the bright side, he thinks, at least it's forever.

    Summary

    "Haven't you ever considered that the problem with all of your past relationships was that they were with women?"

    And just like that, Nicky's turbulent mind goes entirely, perfectly blank.

    Summary

    They sit in the quiet half-dark, too lazy to turn on the light. A lone sunbeam illuminates Nicky's eye, his nose.

    'I don't know about changing the world,' Joe says finally. 'That sounds like I want to do it all by myself. I just want to do my bit. So we can all be a bit happier tomorrow than we are today.'

    'You and me, too?'

    For a moment, Joe thinks this might turn into the talk he had been giving Nicky, about the importance of taking breaks. But Nicky is quiet after that, squinting into the sun, and suddenly, Joe isn't quite so sure what to reply.

    'I hope so,' he says finally. 'I hope so.'

    When the world grinds to a halt around them, Joe and Nicky are forced to navigate who they are (and who they are to each other) from the confines of a flat in Northern Italy.

    A little love story about the things that are important in life.

    Summary

    “Will you go on a date with me?” Nicky asked, stepping into the curve of Joe’s body.

    This, Joe hadn’t been expecting, considering he’d just watched Nicky open himself up on the bright blue anal plug. He settled his hands low on Nicky’s back, where the skin was bare beneath the hemline of his shirt. “A date? Like…a bedroom date?”

    “No, a date date. A proper date. We haven’t been on one of those yet.”

    (Set four months after the events of I Didn’t Order This.)
