New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

eKindle Review by: Jen

The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby is the 4th book in the fusion series. To say I feel in love with this series in an understatement! This series takes us on an adventure as these fun loving best friends navigate their way of owning successful restaurant business and eventually falling in love. I seriously want to jump in these books and become part of their world- luckily for us Kirsten allows us to do just that! Although each book can be read as a standalone it is truly better to read them all in order so you get a better understanding of each character.

The Beauty of Us gives us the story of Riley and Trevor. Trevor has been burned in the past from his ex-wife but doesn’t let that negativity bring him down in life while Riley hasn’t had the best of luck when it comes to dating. As fate would have it, it takes a simple vent session to her friends about her latest online match up that Riley fails to recognize the guy who just so happens to be sitting at the bar-Trevor the man in charge of the filming that is happening at the restaurant. Trevor can’t help but overhear Riley and offers up a bit of advice-stop the online dating and let him take her out to show her how a real date should go. Although they are technically colleagues Riley decides to give a go. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts. I couldn’t help falling in love with Trevor! He is funny, hot, sensitive… pretty much everything you want in a boyfriend! I love how authentic both Riley and Trevor are and how their relationship just flowed so well. As with all relationships the good times happen as do the bad times but it’s how we deal with those bad times that either make or break us. I love how genuine both Riley and Trevor were when trying to make it through the bad times. If you are looking for a read that will make you and your heart happy this is the book!

As always I look forward to the next book that Kristen gives us as I love getting lost in her stories!!

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

This was one of Kendall’s books that had me all swoon-y for a hot as hell lady doctor. Mason is pour perfection! He is one of those men that every single lady hopes and dreams for but for some reason only exist in our wildest dreams. Caring, compassionate, he loves with everything he has, always giving a hundred percent. He is just one of those characters you fall hard and fast for, total swoon material!

Bren is left reeling from the one night stand she had with Mason. He consumes her thoughts and she wonders what it might have been like if she hadn’t given him the slip the morning after. No note, no name, no phone number….was it a mistake or the right thing to do?

Bren soon comes face to face with her mystery one night stand in what I consider the most horrifying way possible! He is the doctor currently looking at her HOO-HA and shit just got real!!! Both Mason and Bren know why she is at his office. Is she pregnant? Is their hot as hell one night of tearing up the sheets about to become a lifetime tied together?!

Gah, for me Kendall did it again with a fast paced, fabulous summer read! I loved the characters and what each of them brought to the table. The way Bren and Mason fit together just worked for me, and they were destined to have more than just one night together. I loved how the characters developed through the story and how they found out what they really wanted in life. As always I would love to read more about these characters and also Mason’s doctor friend Trent. *Wink, wink Kendall* I would recommend this book for all of the readers looking for something that isn’t to in-depth. It’s a fun, flirty, fast paced book that I read in one day. Bren and Mason are a great addition to the Rommates series!

Well…… I don’t know whether to cry or be happy. Actually both. Because I love this series so freakin much and its came to an end. Jude and Tor won my heart in Wrong and haven’t let it go. This book though. Oh my. Ladies yall have completely out done yourselves. I loved all the words and all the feels.

Jude is out for revenge. He will stop at NOTHING to get it. Even giving his own life. Hes lost his daughter and his wife. He literally has nothing left to lose. This is his motivation. Hes a man on a mission and DAMN is it intense. I really hurt for Jude. Having everything and then losing it was extreme hell for him. But as usual with Stevie and LP nothing is quite what it seems. I cant go into this more. No spoilers.

This is a MUST READ SERIES! One you don’t want to miss. With as many downs as there are ups you never know whats coming. Only thing you can do is set down, buckle up, and enjoy one hell of a ride.

I love love love this series!!!!!! Emma once again knocks another out of the park! The chemistry with Ellie and Logan is super intense and Im sure its because they are forbidden. A no go area. Definitely a do not pass go do not collect $200. But this makes me love the story even more.

Ellie is such a free spirit. Almost to the point to where its dangerous. She takes life by the horns and makes the most of it. When her sister gets with a Royal she has no choice but to be in the spotlight. This is where Logan comes in. Hes her protector. The one she looks to for safety because she doesn’t get that feeling anywhere else. Its super intense what she feels for him. Only bad thing is hes a little older and she is not of age…. YET.

Logan is fierce. Super alpha. Smoking hot. He has all of the goods. LOVE HIM!!!! Granted there was a few times where I was like really man!!!! OWN IT!!!! BUT….. he makes up for it. He loves Ellie. And wants her so bad he cant stand it. But he knows he cant have her. He would lose his job. The one thing he loves and makes him happy.

Will they finally get their stuff together and be a couple? Consequences be damned? Well youll have to read and find out. Their journey is a hard one. Its not just easy and constant flirting. It soul consuming. Emma did a phenomenal job with it.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.
 
Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.
 
My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.
 
There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.
 
“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”
 
And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.
 
I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.
 
Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”
 
There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.
 
And Logan’s watching me again.
 
Watching my mouth.
 
His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.
 
I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.
 
And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.
 
Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

WICKED WICKED WICKED! And I freakin LOVE IT!!!!!!!! Sawyer once again knocks another one out of the park and left me wanting more. The characters are intense, the story is fabulous, and smoking hot loving!!!! Whats not to be so excited about?! These Wicked Horse books are some of my favorites and that’s because they are written so darn well.

Jorie is in a pickle. Her husband pulled a dirty move so shes taking her separation to find herself and get her mojo back. But shes been missing something for a long time. Not knowing what it is she sets out on her journey. Jories turmoil was complicated. Wanting one thing to be perfect and finding out its anything but is super hard on her. Struggling with this is where she finds herself at the Wicked Horse. And I will tell ya right freakin now….. I was jealous! WOW!!!!!!!!!!! Girl got it going on!!!! But when she gets a crazy surprise the sparks fly and she rolls with it.

Walsh. Holy hotness. This man!!!! I love him. Alpha. Knows what he wants and takes it. Doesn’t care about what anyone thinks. Boy does he get the shock of his life one night at the Horse and it takes him on one heck of a ride. I love how he just takes no prisioners and goes for it. But that all stops when he gets involved with a woman he shouldn’t. Forbidden. That makes him want her all the more.

These two are in for some troubles. I loved their banter and neither willing to back down on the things they want out of life. Refreshing to read. I look forward to more from this series because its EPIC! Sawyer does amazing things!

 

Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.

The Wright Mistake By K.A Linda~ 5 Star Review

 

 

 

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

I am such a huge fan of K.A.Linde so of course the moment this book appeared on my kindle I jumped right in to start reading. Seriously, I even called my boss telling them I was running late from traffic just so I could at least get one chapter in before I headed into work. I have been such a fan of this series since the first book (each can be read as a standalone) and each book being about one of the siblings that you can’t help but fall in love with keeps me on my toes and my heart happy.

The Wright Mistake takes us on the roller coaster journey of Austin and Julia and seriously- it is quite a journey. It is no surprise, as it has been talked about in the previous books, that Austin likes to have a few drinks. Well, maybe saying a few drinks is putting it lightly when in reality Austin has a drinking problem. (Even before jumping into this book I knew we would be dealing with some heavy topics and I love that K.A.Linde did not hold back.) So Julia and Austin previously dated and their chemistry was undeniable/off the charts however it didn’t last long and their relationship ended in a bitter breakup. As fate would have it- what was supposed to be a fun weekend away for Julia, she ends up being a stuck in a house with Austin and his entire family. Although not in a relationship anymore Austin isn’t opposed to trying to rekindle what him and Julia had in the bedroom however Julia is not on board with that… in the beginning. However as their journey unfolds Austin soon realizes that his carefree lifestyle does not come without consequences. In what he assumed was something that would be rightfully handed to him he soon starts to understand the severity of how his choosen lifestyle affects every aspect of his life. While Julia and Austin attempt to give their relationship ago again Julia’s past comes knocking back while Austin tries his hardest to kick his dependency. Unfortunately life does not always go the way we want it to and it can deal us cards we are not equipped to handle. Will Julia be able to forge ahead despite the past and will Austin be able to overcome his strong addictions so they both can find happiness together? Seriously pick up this book to find out and buckle up!

From the very beginning of this book to the last page I was so wrapped up in this story that it was all I can think about. K. A. Linde did such a great job at discussing such a hard topic. She made is as realistic as it is and was very truthful in how it affects not only the person but the people around them. I loved Julia and Austin as a couple- they were not perfect people but who in real life is? They felt real- their struggles, successes, everything was just real! Despite the fact that this book was about them, the side stories in the book gripped my heart just as much and I cannot wait for the future books in the series. Do yourself a favor and not only read this book but the entire series so far if you have not done already.

Beneath the Truth by Meghan March ~ Blog Tour w/ Two 5-Star Reviews!

 

 

 

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes the final sexy standalone set in the Beneath world of New Orleans.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.
Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.
I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.
Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?
Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.
She’s always been off-limits.
Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

Rhett feels like he’s been burnt by his family. He was taught to obey the law. Follow his family into law enforcement. Be the example. Except that’s not what his father and brother did. As much as he tries to escape and walk away, he is called back to New Orleans and his family. But now he has to deal with Ariel Sampson too, his best friend’s little sister. She’s always been off limits for him but being forced together, will the two be able to avoid the connection they’ve always felt?

“Figure out what you want and go after it.

That’s exactly what I was doing. My life was in ashes, so this was the time to rebuild. Something new. Something good. With Ari.

And right now, I needed some of that good.”

Omg! She did it again and I don’t ever want this series to end! You have no idea how much I wanted Rhett to find his happy. This story had my emotions flying all over the place with figuring out what was happening with Rhett’s Dad’s investigation and who all could be involved. Ariel seemed like such a smart and savvy woman with how she dealt with her business, the threats and even Rhett. He definitely met his match when he started pursuing Ari. The tying up of this series was perfectly executed with this story. All of the characters made a cameo and gave us a sneak peek into their lives. I can’t wait for the spin off with Lachlan Mount coming this Fall.

If you need some alpha bad boys in your romance books, look no further. Meghan March writes the BEST stories that will get you all hot and bothered. If you haven’t read this series or need to catch up, what are you waiting for? I love each and every one of these guys and can’t wait to see who’s next for me to fall in love with.

eKindle Review by: Jen

Ahhh I can’t even tell you how pumped I get when a Meghan March book appears on my kindle. I always know I am in for an amazing ride and probably a good book hangover that leaves me waiting to reread all her other books. I have been WAITING, not so patiently I should add, for the Beneath the Truth to come out. This was the first series of Meghan’s that I read and have been hooked by her and this series ever sense. Beneath the Truth finally gives us the story of Rhett Hennessy (gosh his name even just seeps sexiness). We have seen little bits of Rhett throughout the entire series but now we get an up close and personal encounter of who he is. To say I feel in love with him is  a HUGE understatement. I had a feeling that this book would be amazing and I hate to admit it but I set some pretty big expectations of this book that I hoped Meghan would be able to reach. She not only reached these expectations but she straight up throat punched them and knocked this book out of the park!!!

Beneath the Truth picks  right up with the intensity and sexiness that we expect in the Beneath Series. We are introduced to Ariel, the woman who has always been off limits to Rhett as it is his best friend’s little sister. She has brains, beauty, a bit of awkwardness that you just cant help but fall in love with her. There were times where I couldn’t help but crack up at what came out of her mouth. Ariel has always had a crush on Rhett but knew that nothing would ever come of it because Rhett never paid her any attention- or so she thought. Years later when they both find themselves back in New Orleans for reasons out of their control both of them realize that the crush has never disappeared and the invisibility that one felt was truly an act to try and stay away. As events unravel and puts both Rhett and Ariel in danger it is up to the both of them to figure out who close to them is not who they expect and if the feelings and chemistry they have for one another is fit for the long haul.

Gosh I am so sad to see these series end. I loved every single book of this series. Thankfully Meghan gives us the MOST EPIC EPILOGUE EVER!! I don’t want to go into to much detail about it but it leaves you with a huge smile on your face and an urge to start the entire series all over again (which I a currently doing an entire reread J ) Thank you Meghan for giving us Rhett’s story-the wait was so worth it and you crushed it! I am HIGHLY anticipating your new release and pretty much anything else you write!

Excerpt

 

Wham. My heart slammed against my ribs as it sped up about twenty beats per minute.

The heat and delicious woodsy citrus scent radiating from his body did good things to me. Things that made me want to do very bad things to him. I wasn’t a seventeen-year-old virgin anymore. I knew my way around a man, but I had to admit, the hipsters in Cali had nothing on a homegrown Louisiana man like Rhett.

When he spoke, he leaned in so close that I could feel his breath on my ear. “You missed that shot on purpose.”

My gaze jumped from the sexy five o’clock shadow shading his jaw to his piercing green eyes.

“Wha-what are you talking about?” I smacked myself mentally when my old stammer kicked in. Of course he would cause it.

“That shot. You missed on purpose. I saw you adjust at the last minute. Why?”

I swallowed the saliva pooling in my mouth and decided to take the safest exit from this situation. Lying.

“Cue slipped.”

His eyes narrowed on me. “You’re lying and you’re terrible at it, just like you’ve always been.” He reached up and pressed his thumb to my left eyebrow. “You get a twitch right here.”

Oh my God. Rhett Hennessy is touching me. And what’s more . . . he knows my tell. He noticed me!

The fifteen-year-old inside me did a terrible cartwheel at the realization. Okay, more of a round-off. With a tumble in the grass to finish. Whatever.

But outwardly, I was trapped in that green gaze until he decided to let me go—or until I came to my senses.

I cleared my throat and sidestepped him. “Whatever you say, hotshot. I need another drink.”

Focusing on putting one four-inch heel in front of the other without biting it, I escaped to the table and reached for the whiskey glass I’d left behind, interrupting my brother and the waitress. They both stared at me as I chugged the contents.

I’d always wondered what it would feel like to have Rhett’s attention, and now I knew. In a word, it was . . . unnerving.

“How’s the game going?” my brother asked.

“Fine.” Keeping my answer short meant he couldn’t tell that I was lying. Heath wasn’t nearly as observant as Rhett.

“You winning?”

Thanking the Lord that Heath obviously hadn’t been watching, I shrugged. “I guess.”

He glanced toward Rhett and then back to me. “The sister I know and love doesn’t lose at pool. Ever. Even to Rhett Hennessy.”

I lowered the glass to the table and straightened my shoulders. “Like they say, things change.”

He nodded slowly. “That may be true about most things, Flounder. But you’re a pool shark and we both know it.”

Before I could respond, Heath’s attention jumped back to the waitress. I took another ten seconds to gather myself, also known as drinking offensively in my mind, before I crossed the floor to face off against my former obsession.

“You all right, Red?” Rhett asked.

“Don’t call me that. And I’ve never been better.”

His gaze dipped to my feet and dragged up my body. “I can agree with that statement.”

Whoa. Who is this guy with the innuendo? A glance at his empty whiskey glass told me he was drinking heavily as well. Was this the booze talking? Or was Rhett Hennessy not just noticing me, but noticing me?

Either way, I had to play it cool. Or at least pretend to play it cool, since it seemed I might fall short.

“Your turn, hotshot. Better not miss, because I’ll clear the table next time,” I said, but my cocky attitude backfired.

Rhett didn’t miss. He sank his balls and then the eight, ending the game almost as quickly as it started. He returned his cue to the rack and turned to face me, all traces of the earlier heat banked, his expression shuttered.

“Game over.”

What the hell just happened?
