Author: Rachael Brownell
Genre: New Adult College Romance

” 5 fantastic stars! These 2 have instant chemistry and I’m totally here for it. The pull towards each other is undeniable. This book will have you swooning from the very first pages.” Angie, NOLA504Nerds

 
 
I kissed her and she ran.
She was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen and the way she was looking at me that night, the electric charge between us, had my jeans feeling snug the entire show. When I found her standing alone between sets, I couldn’t help but approach her.
It wasn’t my intention to kiss her. I should have gotten to know her first. Asked her more than her name. But after watching her while I sang my heart out, I wasn’t thinking straight.
That was more than three years ago. When we were both naïve freshmen.
I’ve been watching her ever since. From afar. Like a crazy stalker. (Not my proudest admission.)
She’s even more beautiful than the first time I laid eyes on her. So when I walk into the rec center and find her waiting for me, alone, with lust in her eyes, I pounce. Again. Like an idiot.
Only this time, I don’t feel an ounce of regret because I don’t plan on letting her run away from me again. She’s been my inspiration for years and it’s about damn time she figured it out.
There’s only one way I can do that… I need to sing her the song I wrote about that night.
About her.
I could try to slowly weasel my way into her heart the way she has mine over the years, but I’m sick of wasting time. I want her to be mine today.
Tomorrow.
Forever.
Because the truth is… I’ve been hers since that very first night.

Chapter One

Sawyer

 

My eyes stay locked on the flat screen and I still can’t believe that I’m on the news. In June, I got drafted to the Chicago Hawks, the MLB team I’ve wanted to play for ever since I picked up my first baseball when I was four.

“Sawyer, how do you feel about getting ready to leave for spring training? You still look shocked. It’s rare that someone gets drafted directly into the majors.” The reporter stands in front of me, the light from the camera blinding me.

It sounds like my heart is beating in my ears. “I-I am. I feel very lucky to be in the position I’m in and I hope to earn my place with the Hawks and prove they made the right decision.”  

They hand me the Hawks jersey the team sent me after I was drafted and I hold it up, posing for pictures. My mom comes walking up with my best friend, MeMe, who’s smiling widely standing by my mom’s side. I’m still posing for pictures and they stop on the edge of the crowd, both vibrating with excitement for me.

I start to laugh when MeMe crosses her eyes and rolls her tongue at me. The reporter glares at her and I don’t miss the way her cheeks turn pink and she mouths, “sorry” to me.

“Thanks for the interview, Sawyer, and good luck to you.” I shake his hand before he and the cameraman disappear into the crowd.

MeMe comes running to me, jumping into my arms and hugging me tightly. “I’m so freaking proud of you, but I’m going to miss you so much.” She kisses my cheek before dropping her feet  down to the ground and stepping back from me.

I take in her outfit and smile. She’s wearing her Chicago Hawks jersey that I bought her for her birthday three years ago. The red and blue jersey has her name on the back. MeMe calls it her lucky jersey because when she wears it, she swears good things happen, or so she says.

“Did you wear that for me?” I tuck a loose light caramel brown wavy lock of her hair behind her ear.

MeMe nods. “Of course and I still expect season tickets.”

I wrap my arm around her slim shoulders as Mom approaches with beers in her hands. She hands one to MeMe and one to me. “I’m so proud of you, honey.” I lean down, kissing her cheek. “Your dad would be so proud of you.”

My dad died five years ago—it had been a stroke and was sudden… shocking. He was my biggest cheerleader and coached me through middle school. “Thanks, Mom. I hope he is proud of me.”

Mom gives me a squeeze. “I’m going to head out and let you guys party without your mom getting in the way.” She hugs me tightly before letting me go and walking away. Mom reaches MeMe, who had walked across the bar, hugs her, and then disappears into the crowd.

She runs back to me, throwing her arms around me again. “My best friend is going to be the shortstop for the Chicago Hawks.” She lets go of me and does her Tina Belcher dance, basically she’s got her hands on her knees popping her butt out over and over.

I shake my head, laughing because I fucking love her so much. We met in seventh grade and we just clicked. We never dated, even though people always thought we had—we were always just friends. Through high school, every girl I dated hated my friendship with her, and I know the guys she dated hated me too. They were always jealous because MeMe and I spent so much time together.

She’s always been there for me—every home or away game she’s always been my biggest cheerleader. My dad died and she and her family were there for us, especially MeMe, and when her dad died our freshman year of college I held her up when she started to fall.

“Let’s do some shots,” I tell her.

MeMe throws her hands up in the air, makes the devil horns with her fingers and yells, “Shots!” I don’t miss the way the guys around us check her out and I can only shake my head. Of course what do I expect? She’s always been gorgeous, even when she was just a scrawny pre-teen.

She’s got to be at least five-eight and she’s got curves that could make a grown man cry. I’ve always loved her olive skin tone. Her almond-shaped eyes are a deep rich chocolate brown. MeMe’s mom is half white and half Korean. She gave MeMe her grandmother’s name, which is Mee-Yon. MeMe resembles her mom with her olive skin tone, brown eyes and brown locks. Her dad was a tall, blond, curly-haired, and blue-eyed, Swedish man, and he gave MeMe his height, wavy hair.

I lead her to the bar and we order some shots of Jager and toss them back. She orders us another round of beers along with two more shots. After we do our shots, we head over to some of our friends that just showed up to help me celebrate.

As the night progresses, things start to get a little fuzzy. The dance music is playing loudly and MeMe grabs me, dragging me out to the dance floor. I should politely decline, but I can’t seem to say no to her. She starts moving to the beat of the music and I wrap my arms around her.

We move together as the music pulsates through my body. My dick is half hard and I hope that she can’t feel it. A waitress stops next to us and has a tray of shots. I grab us each one and we clink them together before tossing them back.

After a couple more shots, we decide to head back to my place. We walk the two blocks to my apartment—we’re both nice and buzzed and the cold air leaves us in billowy puffs. When I see my place up ahead, I grab her hand in mine and we make a run for it.

MeMe’s laugh is like a balm to my soul. Once inside, I don’t let her go and lead her up the stairs to my place. I fish my keys out of my coat pocket and let us inside. It’s dark when we step into the living room, and I move to turn on the lamp, but MeMe stops me.

My blinds are open and the lamp from the parking lot illuminates the room enough that I can see her eyes on me. “Saw, I’m so proud of you.” MeMe lifts her hands and rests them on my chest. Can she feel my heart beating a hard rhythm against her fingertips?

I place my hands on top of hers—maybe it’s to pull hers off or to hold them there, at this point I’m not really sure what I want to do. “What are you doing, MeMe?” She’s never looked at me the way she is right now. Her eyes are soft and she keeps biting her lower lip.

“Are you going to forget all about me when you go?” Her voice is soft and there’s a hint of pain in it.

I shake my head. “How could I forget you—my biggest cheerleader, my best friend?”

A Midwesterner and a readaholic most of her life until one day an idea came into Evan’s head and a writing career was born. She’s a sucker for happily ever afters and loves creating fictional worlds that others can get lost in. She loves putting her characters through the ringer, but loves when they get to that satisfying, swoony ending.
 
When the voices in her head give it a rest, which isn’t often, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Aurora Rose Reynolds, (the queen) Kristen Ashley, Kaylee Ryan, Natasha Madison, and Harper Sloan. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, movies, TV shows and life.

She’s a wife to Jim and a mom to Ethan and (the real) Evan, a weightlifter, a home healthcare scheduler, and a full-time author. How does she do it? She’ll never tell.

A trip back to the small Indiana town of Riverbend to finalize my grandmother’s last will and testament throws my world off its axis. I wasn’t prepared to learn the stipulations of

She’s five years old.

It turns out, Grandma had other plans because life’s never that simple.

Before I can get out of the SUV, there’s a knock on my side window.

Turning, I see my old friend.

“Look, Mommy, it’s Dax.”

My cheeks rise as my smile broadens. “It is.”

I unlock the doors, and Dax opens my door. “Hi.”

It’s not fair what he does to me. My heart is racing, and my skin feels clammy. Standing here, Daxton Richards is sex on a stick. His cheeks are red from the sun, and his blond hair is damp and combed back. His smile glistens and letting my gaze sweep lower, I notice how the Dri-FIT shirt stretches over his shoulders and wide chest. He’s wearing khaki shorts and cloth loafers.

“Hi,” I say back.

“I was afraid you would change your mind.”

“I did about a hundred times.”

His smile grows as his golden orbs stay focused on me. “Then I’m glad you didn’t do it one more time.”

He offers me his hand, and I get out of the SUV. He steps back as I open Molly’s door.

As I unbuckle her, I say, “Molly, this is Dax, Mommy’s old friend.”

“Hi, Dax,” she says excitedly. “You don’t look old. Not like Grandmom did.”

Dax and I both laugh.

Once she’s out of the car, Dax bends his long legs and gets down on his haunches. “Hello, Molly. I’m very glad to formally meet you.”

I bite my lip to keep my tears at bay as I watch the two of them looking at each other with the same color eyes. My heart leaps; my chest feels tight. I’d never dared to dream that this would happen and now here it is, more than I ever imagined.

Molly offers Dax her hand.

He glances up at me.

All I can do is nod.

Taking her hand, he shakes it.

“Hi, Dax,” she says.

“How about some ice cream?” I say as I take Molly’s hand.

The whole evening feels surreal as if I’m in a dream.

The Tastee Freeze is located next to a small stream. The ground in between is covered in white pebbles with several picnic tables and benches. There are lights strung over our heads for after dark.

I reach for my purse after I order for myself and Molly, but Dax won’t have it. He adds a blueberry shake to the order and insists on paying.

The three of us sit on a bench facing the stream as Dax asks Molly questions and she tells him everything and more. At some point, he lifts his arm over the back of the bench, and it stretches from him over Molly to me.

My thoughts are filled with Hallmark stories despite telling myself to not have hope. It’s exactly what I do have.

Next door is a small playground near our library.

After our ice cream is done, Dax and I walk Molly to the playground and find another bench where we can watch her. She runs off with a smile as she sees Amber, a friend from school.

“You’ve done an amazing job,” Dax says. “She’s perfect.”

I shake my head. “I think she is, but she isn’t perfect.” I smile at him. “She’s amazing. Each day I feel like she’s growing and comprehending so much more.”

He scoots closer and lifts my hand. “I’m sorry you had to take care of her alone.”

I contemplate retrieving my hand, but I don’t. “I haven’t done it alone. My parents are wonderful. Ruth was fantastic. Chloe and Mick are great.” I grin. “And so is Justin.”

Dax releases my hand and rubs his jaw. “Yeah, so your brother punched me this morning.”

My eyes grow wide, and my fingertips go to my lips. “He didn’t.”

Dax nods with a grin. “I deserve it. If the roles were reversed, I’m not sure Mick and Ricky could have kept it to one punch.”

I reach for his chin and turn his face toward me. “Are you hurt? I’m sorry.”

His smile grows. “I’m fine. I’m glad you care.”

My gaze goes out to the playground where Molly and her friend are climbing a slide. “I’ve always cared.”

This time, it’s Dax who reaches for my chin, bringing my gaze back to his. “You’re more beautiful than I remember.”

“Yeah, well, you’re not as handsome.” I laugh. “You’re more, too.”

Our paths crossed along a deserted, small-town road. I was on the run and the handsome stranger was there to ensure I got to the next town safely – his town. Huxley made it easy to let down my guard… made it easy to forget the trauma I left behind. Courageously, I let myself live in the moment, knowing it was all temporary, just for a taste of happiness.

 

I never expected things to spiral the way they did…

 

I never expected to be taken…

 

I never expected Huxley to be the one to betray me.

 

Our chance meeting wasn’t a coincidence. I’m the job. Nothing is as it seems and feelings aren’t easily contained. Who foolishly falls for their captor? More importantly, is my captor starting to fall for me?

“You’re not a serial killer or ax murderer, are you?” She speaks up. I want to laugh out loud, but I’m sure that won’t bode well with trying to get her into my truck. But c’mon, who would admit that if they were? Surely, she isn’t serious. She crosses her arms over her chest, and it takes everything in me not to let my eyes follow. She’s actually waiting for an answer to that ridiculous question.

 

            “I can promise you I’m not. My name is Huxley Lair, and I’m staying with my mother for a bit in Marietta.” I don’t have to ask if she’s from Marietta. A beauty like her would be well known around such a small town. I haven’t had time to scroll through my list of prospects for sex because I’ve only been back in town for a few weeks, but if she was any other woman, I’d definitely have a go at her. Too bad she is off limits… saved by the job.

 

            “Well, thank you for your generosity, mister. My name is Goddess. I guess a ride would be nice.” The way she says ride has my mind taking a trip straight to the gutter. I need to snap out of this lust. I’m quite aware of what her name is, but I continue to play my part— the stranger who happened to find her along the road.

The ABCs have never been sexier …

 

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Nicole Blanchard comes a captivating new tale of redemption and romance.

 

Waking up in the hospital after an accident is bad enough…but realizing I can’t remember a thing—not even the sexy paramedic who claims to be my husband—is infinitely worse. They tell me my name is Tana Dorran, but I don’t recognize it, or the face in the mirror.

 

Alec Dorran has made a living from solving problems, but the one problem he can’t solve is how to restore the woman he used to love. He says he’ll wait as long as it takes, and he seems like a good man. I’d be a terrible person if I let him waste his time reviving a version of his wife that may never resurface.

 

For some, love may be eternal…but can the same be said for ours?

Nicole Blanchard is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of gritty romantic suspense and heartwarming new adult romance. She and her family reside in the south along with their menagerie of animals.
