6 Days to Get Lucky
Mixologist Nick Valentine never thought love was in the cards, but after a scorching Valentine’s Day kiss from bouncer Davis “FatBoy” Newman, he’s beginning to think it’s possible. After four weeks of dry spell, Nick’s losing patience—it’s time FatBoy stop acting the gentleman and just throw him over the bar or Nick may just change his mind.
All FatBoy wants is a shot at winning Nick’s heart. As long as meddling bosses, an Irish hurling team and a bar riot don’t ruin his chances forever, he might just get lucky and take the man of his dreams, home.
Character Interview with Davis “FatBoy” Newman
What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?
I can be intimidating – I’m a big guy and I work security and I was in the military so that never really goes away – I make it work for me. But it’s just a cover. I’m pretty easy going, I’m at home in my skin and I let people come close though there are only a few friends I trust with all my secrets.
What’s your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that’ll happen in your life?
I hope so. I’m not sure what guarantees a good marriage, never having seen one up close. I know what doesn’t, so if I use that as a reverse road map I’d say fidelity, openness, respect, humor… love?
I’m not sure I know what that means, not in a forever kind of way… I just know that I’ve finally stumbled across the one man that makes my heartache with joy every time I see him.
Do you think you’ve turned out the way your parents expected?
No. I’m nothing like the son they want. They expected me to follow in my father’s footsteps, go to Harvard, become a lawyer in the family firm… marry a woman my mother picked up. If they only knew what was in my heart, they’d never recognize me. But then I knew that from the time I was ten, so it doesn’t bother me much anymore.
Describe your ideal mate.
He’s a smart mouthed bartender with a heart the size of the Rockies and he has lips to die for.
If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?
Find me a nice sandy beach, a cooler full of beer, and a long board, and I’ll be a happy man.
Reaching across the empty bed next to me, I rode out the last waves of my dream alone. I could still feel his phantom kiss on my lips and the sensation of a hand stroking along my thigh.
The rest of it was just a blur of emotions and sticky residue on my sheets—though I could guess at it without much effort. FatBoy Newman had been a specter haunting me at work so it was no great leap to assume he’d shouldered his way into my dreams as well.
In fact, he was at the root of my problem: I’d been having a hell of a dry spell.
Four weeks of near misses had done nothing but stoke my bad mood and turn my balls a lovely shade of indigo that matched my jeans…
Four weeks of dashed hopes…
Four weeks since the most romantic kiss of my life…
Four weeks of nothing.
Fuck the South and its mythology of the Southern Gentleman—if FatBoy Newman didn’t stop treating me like a delicate flower and throw me up against a wall soon, I was going to explode.
It was six days until St. Patrick’s Day, and FatBoy had until then to make his move, or I was moving on.
