“Let me see if I got this. You do a lot of shit and have a lot of cash you need to follow to make sure it gets to the right department so it gets to the people who really need it in the end so you can make the world a better place and sleep like a baby at night, huh?”
I chuckled at how easily Nate boiled it down. “In a nutshell, yes.”
“So you’re a do-gooder.” He licked away a droplet of beer from his top lip.
I nodded and bit the inside of my cheek to stop myself from telling him how gorgeous he was. “Now I have a question for you about your geisha name. When I took Spanish, I chose the name Toro because my mama always said I was bullheaded and stubborn as hell. If the shoe fits . . .” I gave him a resigned shrug. “So what does Momo mean? Or did you randomly pick a name out of a hat?”
“It means peach.”
“Peach? You named your alter ego after a fruit?”
“Nate laughed. “I sure did. If the shoe fits and all that.”
William Harris is a reserved man, private and guarded. He has no one to go home to. He’s never found a man worth sticking around for. He’s never been in love. And he’s convinced he’s happy with his lone-wolf life.
Nate Kelly is William’s opposite, social and easy going. He comes into William’s life as the elegant geisha Momo. When William realizes Momo is a man in drag, he’s captivated.
From their first date, William’s world changes. Nate is nothing like his usual type. And William soon finds out being with this carefree man means always being on display and attracting attention, which makes him want to retreat. He tries to keep Nate at arm’s length, but it’s no use. Nate’s transformed his life in a matter of months and keeps drawing him back in.
If they stand a chance, William has to be comfortable standing next to someone so at home in the limelight. Their future together and William’s happiness depend on it.
