He is also sick. Impressionable, but far from innocent, Rafe ran away from home almost a year ago. His sickness is slowly killing him. But Rafe is not a hopeless case. He has learned to get by. Nights of paid passion turn to sheltering warmth from the imminent New York winter.

When their worlds collide, their lives intertwine and when the world seems bent on bringing the two souls to their knees, fate has other plans for them.

Excerpt

A couple of men, dressed in tight tank tops and leather shorts, walked in, followed by a drag queen with fuchsia hair that towered over her head in a lopsided pyramid. All three had pink glitter eyeshadow covering their eyes and ruby red lipstick across their lips.

They all cheered when they saw Charlie and they embraced one another in an orderly fashion. They were Conclabia and her Pubescent Pubes, a comedy act from the club two stores down. Regular customers and some of the loudest patrons.

Charlie and the gang exchanged niceties, muscle compliments, and makeup adoration before Rafe appeared and embraced each and every one of them intimately, leaving one of the Pubes for last, a tall, buff blond with brown eyes and pink blusher. He squeezed Rafe’s butt-cheek while they were holding the hug longer than usual, Rafe barely reacting to the violation of his privacy.

It wasn’t that Pierce totally ignored Rafe’s last profession, but he disliked seeing him in anything other than his arms. He considered anything mildly sexual involving Rafe as a crime against his innocence. And yes, Pierce also knew that the guy he thought so innocent had been a rentboy, but he didn’t think he could ever see Rafe as anything but the young kid who’d ran from home for liking Britney and Katy Perry.

Rafe threw himself over the bar and pinched Pierce’s nipple over his shirt. “Hey, I’m talking to you,” he laughed, and so did his company.

Pierce blinked and focused his eyes on Rafe’s beautiful irises staring back at him. “Yes?”

“I said, I’ll see you later,  distraĆ­do,” Rafe giggled and joined his friends in leaving the bar to start their night out somewhere further down, in the heart of the Village.

Business picked up and Pierce was forced to put Rafe — and whatever he was up to — on the backseat of his mind. The young man, however, seemed to have called shotgun on his every thought.

“Fucking dickhead,” he spat while he was making a Cosmopolitan.

His colleague, also working behind the bar, turned and asked him what had happened.


“Nothing. Just…cocktails. Hate those fuckers,” he murmured.
