qgickaapphgognsfjcyg

SYNOPSIS

Naomi has had the same dream over and over for years. That was to marry her high school sweetheart, Graysen. When that happens, she imagines life will be easy breezy much like everything else she has accomplished. However, with anything, life will do its best to tear it apart. 

On the brink of divorce, Naomi must take a step back and figure out what happened and what went wrong. She was the perfect wife to Graysen. She cooked, she cleaned, and she loved him before she knew he would be the be all and end all.

But something happened. 

Graysen is a man with nothing but genuine love for Naomi, but he can’t seem to get that back. Being a wife to him is more than doing the chores. He wants her compassion, he wants her attention, and a little affection. Never in a million years did he think he would be filing for divorce after begging her to give him all that he desires. 

Naomi and Graysen have a decision to make – leave it alone or remember the love they had. Racking her brain, she is forced to recount her steps in order to get the love of her life back. Will the love they had be enough to stick it out? Find out in The Love We Had.

SAMPLE

“I thought this was some stupid joke or moment for you to prove how horrible of a wife I am. But no, this is real,” she sighed and wiped her eyes. All of that was partially true. She wasn’t a horrible wife. She was just Naomi, a new Naomi, and I was a new Graysen. We tainted shit along the way and didn’t bother cleaning it up. I didn’t want to spend another day away from her, but shit had to change and she had yet to see the need. 

“We can’t keep pretending we want the same things out of life. You don’t want the normal wife life and that’s what I want.” No matter how many times I said it she wasn’t understanding what I was saying. Sure I could require her to change her ways. I didn’t want to. Naomi wanted success, money and to conquer the world. I wanted that for her without me holding her back and harping on it. “We are thirty-one years old Mimi and it’s time to start appreciating what we have and building on what we don’t.” 

“So, because I don’t want kids, you are leaving me?” 

“It’s not about you not wanting kids, it’s your attitude towards anything I want. I give you any and everything you want but all my requests are met with bullshit, excuses and attitude. I’m human and you aren’t anymore.” 

“You haven’t been home in weeks. How do you know I’m not willing now?”

“Show me you aren’t only doing this because your fairytale is ending, and we can talk. I’m leaving town for a few weeks tonight. When I get back if you want to talk reach out, because I’m not kissing your ass anymore. You talk fiction bae, and I talk facts. The facts are you haven’t gave a fuck about me in months.”

FIRST-3/21-BREAKING BARRIERS TO YOUR HEART-MONICA WALTERSuofhxwmmvr3obtzhcmfr

SYNOPSIS

Growing up always being overlooked, Shana Albert found herself willing to settle for mediocrity. After being hurt countless times by men, she shut her innermost feelings and desires off from men. Focusing on being happy with herself was her main agenda. Having a great job at the federal prison and owning her independence, Shana has everything. However, when she meets Red Anderson at the Houston Livestock Show, everything changes. She knows she wants to be his but doesn’t know how to bare her heart to him or how to fully trust him. Those inadequacies for the first time are bothering her, because she wants to give Red more of herself before his patience runs thin.

Life has finally become worth living for Craig ‘Red’ Anderson. Having a horrible childhood, then growing up a ward of the state wasn’t exactly a cake walk. After a chance encounter with a cowboy, his life is changed forever. Channeling his energy into learning to be the best steer wrestler in the world, Red Anderson is able to push out all the negativity in his life. Honing his skills and learning from the best, Legend Semien, Red becomes a force to deal with in the rodeo arena but in life, another force brings him to his knees. Shana Albert comes in Red’s life like a whirlwind and swallows him whole. After succumbing to the love he has for her, things get complicated when she doesn’t concede to those feelings as well. Being a steer wrestler, he’s taught not to break barriers, but can he break the ones around Shana’s heart?

Fighting demons of their past, it seems that Red and Shana face drama at every turn and difficulties of that drama threaten to tear them apart. Both being stubborn, opinionated individuals, causes unnecessary rifts that put their relationship on the line. Will Red and Shana finally figure out what loving one another is all about? Or will they decide to just cut their losses and chalk it up as a lesson learned?

SAMPLE

“Mmm… Red. Stop that. I’m hungry for you, but my stomach hungry too.”

He chuckled, then licked and bit his bottom lip. I scooted closer to him to where I had to drape my legs over his and licked his dimple. “You gon’ make me fuck you up at this dinner table, Shana.”

“Quit talking noise and do it, then.”

With one swoop, he picked me up and laid me on the dinner table, next to our plate of food. He moved it to the other side, then began unbuttoning my pants. “I’m sorry for being impatient with you. Let me make it up to you tonight. I’m gon’ have you calling in tomorrow.”

I gave him a one-cheeked smile, as he pulled my pants off. Sitting up, I looked in his eyes, then took off my shirt and bra. Red slid his hand from my stomach to my chest, then gently pushed me back until he was leaning over me and his hand was resting on my neck. “You weren’t impatient. I’m sorry for taking so long.”

“Tell me you love me.”

“I love you, Red.”

He slid his fingers inside of me. “Tell me that shit again.”

“Ahh, Red. I love you.”

He lowered his head and teased my clit with his tongue. “And again, Shana.”

“Damn, baby. I love you,” I moaned out.

He sucked my clit until I was squirming on the table. Lifting his head, he said, “I’m about to make you cum all over this table. When you do, I want you to scream that to the high heavens.”

His eyes were pinned on mine until I nodded. Getting back to business, I thought I was gon’ break his table the way I had it rocking. “Red, I’m about to cummm.”

“Mmm hmm.”

When he hummed on my clit, that was it. “Craig! I love you, shit!”

I screamed so loud, if Red would have had close neighbors, they would have heard every syllable of that shit. When it had passed, he stood straight up and wiped his face, then dropped his shorts. He was free-balling. I loved his country ass.

He picked me up from the table and lowered me on his dick. “What about dinner?”

“That’s what they make microwaves for,” he said as he nibbled at my nipple. “I need you to put this work in first.”

He sat on the couch, then lifted his hips and thrust into me. I began my ride as Red groaned. As I leaned over him, he bit, then sucked on my nipple as he grabbed my ass. “Damn girl. You fucking me like you love me, huh?” he asked as I rolled my hips, taking all of him.

I smiled at him. “I do love you, Red.”

“Well fuck. I got a smile showing teeth too, so it must be true.”

I adjusted my feet where I was flat-footed on his sofa, then began bouncing on his shit. “Oh shit! Fuck me up then, girl.”

SAMPLE

The Scent of Us

He was harsh when I needed to be stroked roughly

Gentle when I needed to be held through the night.

His touch helped keep the nightmares away.

He kisses kept my lips moisturized.

Just being in time with him made time priceless, more precious then I remember

And I remembered plenty.

Like the time he slid in my p*y and made me cream mere minutes later

I wonder if society would compare my quickness to that of a minute man

Just curious…

Curious how a man could make me cum that hard and that quick

And feel my orgasm so deep I couldn’t tell if I was heaven bound

or heaven sent.

My scent held his scent.

We became a billion-dollar scent and sold out throughout the country.

THIRD-3/25-UNTAINTED LOVE-IVY LAIKAgt3k6wmot88os5c0gxtw

SYNOPSIS

Love – whether good or bad, everyone wants to experience it. Everyone except for Ladi. She’s tried her hand at love and the cards that she’d been dealt never stacked up. After getting her master’s degree and moving back to Miami, Ladi’s only focus is securing her dream job.

Something that Ace Baptiste has never been… is unsure. Everything that he wants he goes for and gets it. So when he first lays eyes on Ladi and felt a connection that was undeniable it only made sense for him to have her. Will Ace’s persistence be enough to make Ladi his lady or will she be the one thing that he fails at capturing?

Ladi’s dream job has the potential to lead to a dream love, but that’s only if she opens herself up to experience it. Will she put forth the effort and give Ace a chance, or keep her heart closed off to his untainted love?

SAMPLE

Ace

“I meant every word, Beauty. I like your vibe when we’re together. I admire your drive and professionalism. I adore your full lips and almond shaped eyes, and I appreciate your time.”

“I like your vibe. I admire your persistence. I adore your dark skin and full beard, and I appreciate the effort you’re putting forth, Ace.”

Damn! Could this girl draw me in anymore? Never had a woman took the time to point out specific things that she liked about me. I was beginning to understand why Ladi put as much importance on words as she did. She couldn’t physically touch my heart or soul, but her words did easily.

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-CHOSEN BY FATE

Hey, gorgeous!

Tomorrow Lex. C. returns with, Chosen By Fate, Book 2 of the Because of Her Series.

IMG_9068

SYNOPSIS

One choice

Two friends

Arden Lizette Adams was chosen to be a sister, by fate, when her mother adopted Phoenix Wells after an apartment building fire took the life of Phoenix’s mother. That choice changed Arden’s world, although it seemed Phoenix came attached to a world of her own. Now, a renowned stylist, Arden styles high profile clients, like the men of The Camp. While Arden seems to fit into their lives like she’s always belonged, she develops a very special connection with one of them in particular. A connection that could possess the power to touch her heart, mind, body, and soul. 

Justice Owens is a downright sex symbol and no stranger to indulging in women. His smooth and sensual vocals set the tone for The Camp’s songs that are topping the charts and spreading their fame across the globe. When his brother finds love so encompassing it almost seems contagious, the feelings he’s kept for his best friend, Arden, begin to rise to the surface. The only problem is, his need to express them comes at the same time that a blast from the past shows up with a five-year-old who turns out to be his son. 

Not only does this news change his life, it sets up camp right in the middle of he and Arden’s growing connection. Now, a father with a woman who can’t help but stir up drama as his son’s mother, he wants more than to find solace from it all in Arden as a friend. The problem with that is, Arden is more than conflicted with the weight of the love in her heart for Justice and the pressure of everything he comes with on her mental. 

Find out what happens with these two when a love so strong chooses them in the midst of a whirlwind that boils down to one decision.

SAMPLE

Jus looked down at me as I was studying his juicy lips while he spoke, laughed, and smiled. His hand wrapped around my thigh, right above the knee and he leaned over to whisper in my ear. Phoenix and I caught eyes as his soft lips brushed my earlobe and pinched mine together.

I was doing my best to conceal the effect his touch and closeness had on me in front of everyone who’d been watching us grow closer and closer. They all wanted more for us so I was sure I was only a few publicly blissful moments away from it being all of them against me and my apprehension.

“I see you, Arden. You want to taste them?”

The suggestion intrigued and enticed me. I not only wanted to taste those sexy lips of his, I wanted to feel them grazing and sucking on my skin. The liquor in rotation with Jus right beside me had me hornier than ever. His fingers massaged circles along my exposed inner thigh in my flowy little sea blue dress.

“All you have to do is say it, mama bear. I’ll let you.”

I looked across the table again to resist the urge to give in and Phoenix smiled wide, catching eyes with me. She mouthed, “You so love him,” and I covered my face feeling the warmth of my own skin. If I was a couple shades lighter, my cheeks would be red. Moving my hands to cover his, I stopped him as I felt my folds getting slippery. The last thing I needed was a wet spot on this dress.  

It was my turn to lean into his ear, “Do you want your boys to see how wet you can make your best friend get through this dress, papa bear?”

Jus pulled in a deep breath and used that same hand he removed from me to adjust what I could already see was his growing dick. He let out a deeper, smoother chuckle than I was used to hearing from him and I knew then I had turned him on unlike any other time before.

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-RUN FROM ME

Hey, beauty!

Tomorrow Aubreé Pynn returns with, Run From Me, and we have final sneak peek to share with you!

xdtw8oxzfwqfkixuvo5w

SYNOPSIS

Ahlayna had one plan for spring break, and that was to read. But when her best friend, Tatiana Wolfe, offers an alternative to her plans, Ahlayna knows that she’s entered a realm laced with danger. From the moment she entered Ty’s space she knew that she had to run. Run as far away from him as possible.

Ty, better known as Wolf, has three rules: his sister is off limits, anyone associated with his sister is off limits, and always protect the ones he loved. He managed to balance all three while running and ruling the streets of Dade County with a mean fury. He can have whatever woman he wanted, when he wanted. That was until he laid his eyes on Ahlayna. She was forbidden fruit, but like a moth to a flame he couldn’t stay away from her.

Ahlayna has the power to tame the beast that lives inside of Ty. Growing closer to Ty is an ever-present danger. Once danger puts her in its sight, Ahlayna could either run from Ty or run towards him. Ty has declared that he will chase her to the ends of the earth, but their fate lies in the ashes of the aftermath of a tragic event.

Will Ahlayna relish in the love she’s found, or will she run as far as she can?

SNEAK PEEK

Ahlayna Rivers

She did everything she could to get herself together, but nothing was working. Ty had enticed a form of emotion she’d never felt before. Feeling his eyes examine her bare body made her nipples perk and a shiver travel up and down her spine. With her back pressed against the door of the bathroom, she felt her center throb. Ahlayna’s brain could no longer regulate the sensation coursing its way through her veins. For a brief moment while she stood naked in front of Ty, he held her captive under his trance, and she wanted him to touch her. If he were to reach out and touch her melting honey, she would have forgotten her protective bubble for just a moment and allowed him to have his way. It was something about Ty that took her worry away but sparked fear in her. She knew that he was dangerous, but like a moth to a flame, she was being drawn to him.

After a cold shower to cool her hormones she trudged to the guest room and pulled her duffle bag out the closet. Once her body regulated, she was overcome with irritation. She had no idea where Tati had run off to. The only thing Tati told her when she left at noon was that she would be back. Covering for Tati wasn’t something she wanted to do. Lying to Ty was a no go, everyone knew that. But her loyalty to Tati was deep, and Tati would have covered for her in an instant had the situation ever presented itself.

She packed her bag with her clothes, needing to get out of there and back on campus. Back to her bubble and out of Ty’s reach. His magnetic pull on her along with Tati’s disappearing act was enough to make her retreat back into her bubble.

“Layna!” Tati shouted through the halls. She held pizza in her hands while she searched for Ahlayna. “Where are you going?”

FINAL SNEAK PEEK -WITH ALL MY TRUST

Hey, gorgeous!

Tomorrow Shenaé Hailey returns with book one of the Hearts Fall Series, With All My Trust, and we have one final sneak peek to share with you!

withallmytrust

SYNOPSIS

“Without communication there is no relationship. Without respect there is no love. Without trust there is no reason to continue.”

Valentina and Vernon have made a pact – they both will have one year to focus on their personal lives while the other takes care of their mother. When Valentina’s year begins, Vernon’s freedom temporarily ends, forcing her to seek the help of his old friend, Mali Toussaint.

When Graham Richardson decides to take a temporary hiatus, there is only one person he can think of that is good enough to replace him at his family’s law firm – Mali Toussaint. Not only is he a capable lawyer, but he’s Graham’s closest friend.

Upon accepting the temporary position, Mali’s world begins to unravel professionally and personally. The good thing is, Valentina allows him to put himself back together again… in her. Not only does Valentina have a heart like Mali’s, she slowly makes her way inside of his. But there are secrets… secrets that Mali keeps from Valentina, wreaking havoc on their relationship before it fully begins. After Mali breaks her trust, she finds herself choosing between her beliefs or the man she’s slowly started to fall in love with.

Please note: This is book one of a standalone series. Each book in the series will feature a different couple and end with a HEA. While it is not a requirement to read previous books to understand the next one in the series, it is recommended that you read the books in order for maximum entertainment.

SAMPLE

“I’ll go in a little later. How about that?”

Jeremy’s head shook as his eyes lowered. He pushed my arms down from his body and turned to look himself over in the mirror before heading towards my door.

“No, because then you’ll have to work late which means you’ll sleep in later and everything else in your day will be thrown off. You’ll be even less consistent with calling and texting, and I probably won’t end up seeing you at all tomorrow because of it.”

My chin lowered to my chest as I avoided his eyes and mumbled, “Well, I don’t know what you want me to do, Jeremy. I’m trying to make time, but you know my mother’s situation. She’ll always be my priority.”

With a soft chuckle, Jeremy’s hand wrapped around the doorknob. When his chuckle subsided, he licked his lips as he looked me over.

“I know she’s a priority to you, but I’m asking that you make me a priority too. It’s not like she’s going to be at the hospital alone. Your brother’s going to be there, right?”

Okay, right. That was true. But… Jeremy just didn’t understand. You didn’t understand these types of things if you had never been in this kind of situation. When my father died, I wasn’t there for him. I didn’t make going to the hospital that day a priority, partly because I was in denial, because I was sure he would be okay.

That his visit would be like my mother’s numerous hospital visits. That he would be out and back to his normal self in no time. But that wasn’t the case. When he needed me most, I wasn’t there. He asked for me, so we could say goodbye, and I wasn’t there. I carried that around with me every day of my life, and I refused to let that happen with my mother.

It didn’t matter if she went to the hospital every day, I was going to be right by her side, and there was nothing Jeremy or anyone else could say or do to change that.

“You are a priority. If you can’t see that…” I shrugged, finally meeting his eyes again. “I’m sorry.”

“I don’t need you to be sorry. Just make the shit right,” were Jeremy’s parting words.

Though each book in the Hearts Fall Series is a standalone it is recommended that you read them in order to maximize your reading pleasure! If you haven’t read the preface to book one, With All My Heart, it can be found on Amazon!

SAMPLE

Tyrell Wolfe

“Tati!” he called roaming through the apartment. Loud music floated from the back of Tati’s three bedroom apparent. As he roamed further down the hall he heard the lyrics to the music clearer. Miguel’s sultry voice sang seductive sounds from the bedroom. He couldn’t stomach what was on the other side of the door, so he started up the hall past the bathroom door that flew open.

With a scream, the two of them stood staring at each other. Ty’s presence scared Ahlayna to the point she let go of her towel. After that, she couldn’t do anything. Ty’s glare was fixed on her wet body. Her erect nipples, her thick thighs that cradled her shaven haven, and the goosebumps his glare enticed. She was frozen, her brain was screaming, pick your towel up and run but her body was under his trance. Unknowingly, Ty took his bottom lip between his white teeth and grunted. It was bad enough that the image of her with her clothes on was haunting him, the memory of this moment was going to drive him insane.

Ahlayna grabbed a hold of some sense and snatched her towel from the floor before running back into the bathroom and slamming the door. The sound of the door slamming brought Ty back to reality, he was standing in his sister’s apartment lusting over her best friend. Tati’s friends were off limits. He was never going to cross the line with a friend of his sister. The same rule applied to Tati. Anyone associated with Ty was off limits.

“You ain’t got no shit I haven’t seen before,” he spoke over the music while Ahlayna pressed her back against the other side of the bathroom door. Ty’s trance caused her to burn hot with unwanted desire. She had to get out of here and back to her bubble before she crossed a line she could never come back from. “Calm down.” Ty sensed that Ahlayna was having a mini panic attack on the other side of the door. “Where is Tati?”

SAMPLE

“Spit whatever you have to say out, Jus, please,” I pleaded as my lungs weakened, prematurely contracting and skipping breaths like a record scratching. His face softened as his eyes dropped to my chest, taking in my body’s response. As if he wasn’t sure of what was taking place, he ran his hands up my sides stopping just beneath my breasts. I thanked God for my bra because my nipples were hard as a rock and he’d recently got a peek at what he could do to them already.

He let one hand travel up my side, tracing the outline of my breast to drift across my chest and cup my chin. I innately wet my lips as I became short winded. Jus had always been gentle with his affections toward me but I had never been this sensitive to him.

“Tell me what’s really up with you and him, Arden,” Justice leaned so close I could feel his Winterfresh scented breath on my lips. “Why can I make you react like this but you’re still seeing him? Why are you letting him in your garden knowing he’s not really here to help you grow?”

I bit my bottom lip more out of disappointment than anything. I wasn’t supposed to let him see me like this. He wasn’t supposed to consume me like this. When had I started letting myself so freely feel Justice Owens effect in the first place? His words were selfishly stripping the appeal Marion held straight from my perception.

“You don’t know that and neither do I. It’s too soon to tell.”

“Arden, tell me why.” Jus swept his thumb over my cheek and pulled me closer by his remaining hand on my hip.

“Because he wants more than to be my friend, Jus…”

The title of Say He’s Ready tells it all. Meet Houston, a widow and single father who is focused on raising his son, Malone. The loss of a spouse is hard, but the loss of a mother is even harder. Houston’s time is split between running his business and attempting to keep Malone out of trouble. At his wits end, the school calls in the help of State Pediatrician Teaghan LeJune. 

Teaghan is fierce and fearless as she moves through life. Her career is her pride and joy. Dating hasn’t been fun, and it’s the only thing in her life she can’t win with. She’s tired of being set up and played when she would give the shirt off her back for those in need. After running into men that aren’t ready but look good on paper, she decides to give it up. 

As fate would have it, the paths of Houston and Teaghan cross in the most unconventional way. Quickly, her mind is changed on dating if Houston would open up and allow her to wrap him in her love swarm. His words of not being ready don’t match his feelings of being smitten by Teaghan. Within a few short days, Teaghan has managed to crack open the shell of a man Houston once was. 

Once they find themselves ready, a challenge neither expected comes to halt them dead in their tracks. Promises of not letting each other down no longer matter when decisions must be made. Find out if he is truly ready to embark on a love that may require more of him than he has to offer. 

SNEAK PEEK

Now I was at a crossroad. Teaghan was a wonderful woman just from what I already knew which wasn’t enough or nearly all I wanted to know. I originally asked the question just for kicks but now I wished I would’ve kept my mouth closed. I possessed all the shit she explained but a ready heart. There was no doubt that I was willing. I didn’t want to be another man that wrote a check he couldn’t cash. And I damn sure didn’t set out to hurt people. Especially not people like Teaghan. 

“That rules me out huh?” 

“I didn’t realize you were looking to be in the running Mr. McGraw,” she squinted with a tilted head.  

“I’m not a liar, so it’s time I admit that I’m checking for you a little more than I imagined. I can’t say I want a relationship, but I could use an acquaintance,” I admitted.  

“To friendship,” she said holding out her hand. I grabbed it and kissed her knuckles gently. As I knew it, the beat of my heart started playing to its own tune. Our hands stayed within each other’s long enough for me to conclude that being her friend would open my heart up to being a little more ready than I was available for.

SAMPLE

“Pain builds character. Are you making it clear what you want?” I asked once the waiter left us alone. She was still having a hard time coming back from her answer and I felt like an asshole for ruining the mood. 

“Having a job is cool, having money is a plus, and having a nice car is great also but that doesn’t make a man ready. That makes you stable and I don’t need stable. I’m stable by myself. I need a man that has a ready heart or at least a willing heart. Men can check all day long, but I won’t cash in on every check that comes my way,” she answered dropping a bomb on me, “So to answer your question, yes, I make it clear what I want, but most importantly what I need.”

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-YOU’RE ALL I NEED

Hey, beauty!

Tomorrow Deshon Dreamz returns with, “You’re All I Need” and we have one final look to share with you.

SYNOPSIS

Love rarely asks permission to engulf you, most times it just happens.

Stephanie is a woman that puts all she has into everything she touches; from being a woman, mother, and her budding career as a Creative Director at JustUs Magazine. Her upbringing does not allow her to half step with anything in her path. This type of grind is what has gotten her to the position that she is in today. After ending her sexual arrangement with the father of her child, she pledges to indulge in a lifestyle that would grant her access to reap the fruits of her labor. A chance encounter with a man that is a replica of her boss seems to be exactly what she needs to begin her journey of exploration.

Elliot Grant isn’t back home to play, he’s back home to make some serious decisions about his future and where the next leg of life will take him. What he doesn’t expect, is a woman to come into his life to make his decision making easy. Love was not an aspiration for Elliot, in fact, he made it a point to shut it down before those feelings could develop. He doesn’t see Stephanie coming, and before he knows it, she’s too deep to get out of his system.

SNEAK PEEK

I nodded as I answered the phone. “Stephanie Harris with JustUs. How can I help you?”

“Uh…”

My brows dropped. “Hello?”

“I think I was routed to the incorrect line.”

The voice coming through the line was doing something strange to my womanhood. “Who were you um- who were you trying to reach?”

“Tate Grant.”

“Oh, Tate. Yeah, this isn’t his extension. I can transfer you if you’d like.”

“That would be great.”

I wanted to stay my ass on this phone. “May I ask who’s calling?”

“Elliot Grant.”

When he said his name, it all made sense. It was weird as hell for me being that I hadn’t even did a double take at a man since Joshua. I was so caught up on him, it didn’t seem like I could see anyone else. Until Elliot. Elliot had been in my dreams and my nightmares. He was everywhere, a part of everything. It was crazy because I’d only spoken to him once.

“You aren’t Stephanie Stephanie, are you?”

A nervous laugh started in my gut. “Oh, um- if you mean the Stephanie from the park then yes, that’s me.”

“Oh, damn. I didn’t recognize your voice.” Elliot stated, sounding disappointed.

“How would you recognize it when you only heard it once?”

The line fell silent, for a moment I thought it disconnected. “It stayed in my head long enough. I just knew that I’d remember it.”

My brows shot up. Was he flirting with me? “Oh.”

“I’m actually glad that I was sent to the wrong extension now that I know it’s you. How have you been?”

I blinked. “I’m good. I’m good. You?”

“I’m better now.”

Ok, so this is flirting. This is flirting Stephanie! Hello! “Are you still in New York?”

“So, you remembered me too.” He asked with a slow chuckle. “That’s good. That means I made a good impression on you too.”

“So, are you in New York?” I asked again, causing him to chuckle.

“If I say yes, will you have dinner with me tomorrow night?”

My eyes bucked. “Dinner?”

“Yes, dinner with me. What do you like to eat?”

I became flustered. Just yesterday, I told my child’s father that I refused to be his side chick. Now I was being asked out on a date by the brother of my boss. The weirdest part about this entire scenario was that I wanted to say yes to him. I didn’t want to make him wait, I didn’t want to give him a hard time. The only words that kept ringing in my head was, “Yes, I’ll have dinner with you.”

I could tell he was just as surprised as I was. “Really?”
