I think Frankie is the person I always wanted to be, but never quite managed, and for that I kind of love him. He’s flamboyant, the closet is only for his clothes and he loves life and his friends. He also flirts with the cute hot guy behind the bar.
Ah yes, the joy of waiting at the bar.
Where I am invisible. I always send a friend to get the drinks because if I go we’ll still be there in the morning. I thought it was just me. I’m not a hot blonde, or tall, or a Frankie. But then I saw my 6ft 4” friend with the same problem, and he is way way too big to be invisible.
What is the trick to being served? I smile, make eye contact, wave a note, even hold an empty glass. Nothing works. I don’t click my fingers because if someone did that to me I’d want to snap their fingers one by one. The bar staff whizz backwards and forwards trying to serve the crowd. I don’t envy their job. It’s difficult when you have a deep scrum of people to get through.
The trick is to send your friends who aren’t invisible. *nods*
Alternatively you’re like me, you have your social life at lunchtime, with your favourite author friends, when it’s not so busy. Quick service and yummy food. What do you mean, I’m middle-aged?

Dumped by his boyfriend, Frankie Mason goes out with the girls, gets totally trashed, and ends his night by falling in front of a taxi. He’s rescued by a man with beautiful green eyes who takes care of him until he’s put into an ambulance. Frankie curses himself as he realizes he doesn’t have the man’s phone number. Still in pain a few days later, he is dragged out to a club only to be saved by Green Eyes once more. This time, he isn’t letting the man go.
Unfortunately Frankie has to attend a team-building exercise, nicknamed Womb Weekend, organized by his company. Al is working so he doesn’t mind, until he discovers who the team leader is. Al has a lot of explaining to do!
The bar was packed and Frankie wasn’t tall. He waited in the scrum until it was his turn to be served and then beamed at the barman, who was short, blond, and really cute.
“Two bottles of water,” Frankie said.
The barman blinked. “Still or sparkling?”
Frankie admired the guy’s arse as he bent to get the bottles from the chiller. Cute and a nice butt! Not Frankie’s usual type, but never let it be said he wasn’t flexible… except for women—he wasn’t that flexible.
“I get off at three,” the barman said, obviously reading Frankie’s admiration.
Frankie licked his lips, pleased to see the barman’s eyes tracking the action. “See you then.”
“Mark, if you’ve finished flirting with the customers….” A woman dressed in the club’s uniform leaned across him to serve another customer.
“Yeah, sorry, Sarah.” Mark smiled at Frankie. “Later.”
Frankie nodded and backed away. Later sounded good enough for him.
He chugged back an entire bottle of water to slake his thirst, then followed up with half of the second.
“There you are,” Charlotte said. “I thought you’d escaped.”
Frankie smirked at her. “Cute barman.”
“’Bout my height, big eyes, probably blue, and a tight arse that’s waiting for me to plough it.”
Her eyes widened. “You top?”
“Don’t sound so surprised. It’s been known to happen.”
Charlotte plucked the water bottle out of his hand and downed the rest of it, ignoring his outraged “What the fuck?” When she’d finished, she wiped her mouth and looked at him. “Thought we were going for breakfast after the clubbing.”
Frankie leaned forward to kiss her on the cheek. “Babe, we’ll have breakfast.”
“Are you bringing him with us?”
Frankie shrugged. “We’ll see. Leave the details to me. Now let’s get back to the dancing.”
She whooped and dragged him back on the floor. The music changed to George Michael.
“Jesus, get in this century already,” Frankie yelled.
Jane shimmied against him. “He’s a classic.”
“That’s one way to describe him,” Frankie agreed. He could think of others.

Running Marchant’s BDSM club, Tony sees who the Doms prefer and it isn’t him—too big, too old, and too hairy. When his friend Jordan suggests he look outside the club, Tony’s mind turns to Leo, a man he met in a traffic jam.
