He offers his services in hopes she'll come around. Just when things are starting to go his way, a shocking turn of events snatches her from his grasp.

About the Author:

We all need moments of escape. With all the demands on us day in and day out, we each need something just for ourselves. Perhaps nothing provides a private moment - a brief respite from every day - like escaping into a great story. When you pick up one of my books I hope you find that place that you can escape to. Explore the streets of Paris with new heroines or fly around the world to reclaim your lost love with a favorite hero. Whether it's the romance that takes your breath away or those climactic encounters that make your pulse race, I hope you find that solitary moment of enjoyment while lost in one of my stories.

EXCERPT:

“Dude, who is it? Please tell me you didn’t get back with that bitch Aubrey,” Blake says rolling his eyes. 

“Fuck, no!” I slow my pace down so I can catch my breath a little. “We’re not exactly dating. She wants to keep things more casual – she had a really bad break-up and it’s making it hard for me to get her to move me from the fuckbuddy zone to boyfriend status, but I’m working on it.” 

“You do realize, you may be the first guy in history to utter those words together, right?” Blake laughs. “Okay, I promise I won’t say a word. Who the hell is it?” 

“Well, remember a couple of years ago, before I dated that girl Suzannah, when Brad was going out with a girl named Brie? He used to bring her around all the time.” I say. 

“Brie… the chick with dark hair? I remember her. She was hot as shit – I never figured out how Brad ever got her in the first place.” Blake shook his head. “Wait, so you’re banging her?” 

I stop in my tracks and turn to face him. “Neversay that again. It’s not like that with her. She’s not some piece of ass.” 

“Whoa!” Blake puts his palms up. “Max! You’re the one who says you were fuckbuddies. You really like this girl, huh?”

“She’s different, man.” We are near a food stand, and we walk over and grab a couple of waters to cool down. 

“She’s smart, man, and funny, and cool as shit. She had this asshole ex, though, who dumped her right before their wedding. Some guy named Grant. Do you know him?” Blake shakes his head back and forth. “Like, right before their wedding. She says she can’t date anyone right now because of the way he fucked her over, so we worked out an arrangement.” I roll my eyes.

“So, she just wants to fuck you, but won’t date you? Yeah, that sounds like a real problem.” Blake roll his eyes, laughing as he polishes off the rest of his water. I rub my face with my palms, and he looks at me again.  “Shit, you’re serious, aren’t you? You really do like this girl.” 

“Dude… I think she’s the one.” As I say the words, it hits me. How happy I’d been to see her when she came in the bar that night, and how glad I was when she gave me her number. How angry I’d been when that asshole tried to hurt her, and how, when she was in my arms, I never wanted to let her go. I was falling for her. Hard.
