Cal is a young chef just out of school at his first job; he comes from a privileged environment, his dad owns an exclusive restaurant in San Francisco, Cal studied at a prestigious school in New York City and now he is apprenticing in an important restaurant in Modesto. Sure, he is not working for his dad, but at the restaurant they know who he is, and moreover who is dad is. So this is not the story of a struggling poor boy with a dream, it’s more the story of two lucky boys falling in love. The other boy in question is Andaluz “Luis”, the nephew of Cal’s new boss; bold and brash when he first meets Cal, no hiding he is gay, interested in Cal, but only for one night, he is soon turned down by Cal who was previously burned by an in-working place relationship. But not letting Luis have his new toy to play is the sure way to have him hooked for the long-term instead.
Most of the story centers around this, Cal and Luis’s blossoming love, and the building of their future together. The story just stops at the beginning of that, but the reader is sure the future will be bright and happiness will be part of it, cause, as I said, there is just an hint of magick, like a window in the future, that makes you sure that will happen.
