Sunday Series Spotlight: Ruby’s Series by DL White

Brunch at Ruby's, Ruby's Series: Book One by DL White

Ruby's Soul Food Cafe has been the neighborhood hot spot their whole lives, so it's only fitting that Ruby's is where Debra, Maxine and Renee meet monthly to do what girlfriends do-- eat, drink and offer unsolicited advice on life and love.

Debra Macklin has it all: a successful career, a long marriage and a happy 12 year old daughter. But she's hiding a secret that could not only shatter her perfect image, but destroy her marriage and career. When her secret is spilled, Debra is poised to lose everything she holds dear.

Maxine Donovan is a self made woman but despite all she earns and owns, she's on a constant quest for Mr. Right. Handsome, aloof Malcolm Brooks might just be The One, but when Malcolm's attention turns toward her friend instead, Maxine is ready to risk a strong bond to fight for him.

Renee Gladwell left a lucrative job and a handsome boyfriend to nurse her father and Gladwell Books back to health. A temporary stay has turned into four years of struggling with Alzheimer's and a family owned bookstore that is in no shape to sell. Renee is in limbo, caring for a man who is slowly forgetting his past--including her. When she meets Malcolm Brooks, her life brightens, but is love worth risking a friendship?

Brunch at Ruby's is a funny, inspiring, soulful look into a lifelong friendship where bonds are bent, but never broken.

Dinner at Sam's, Ruby's Series: Book Book by DL White

Vanessa Jackson is just trying to get divorced, not pick up a new man; and certainly not her divorce attorney.

Gibson Kincaid is trying to do right by his new client, but in all honestly, he wants to get Vanessa divorced... so he can have her to himself.

Vanessa's not-soon-enough-to-be ex-husband, Warren, isn't ready to let go of the young, naive woman he 'rescued' from a different life ten years ago. Though she and her girls are barely making it, life would be so much easier if she could divorce the son of a...

Gibson, the youngest of four Kincaid men, all attorneys at Kincaid Family law is the rebel. He's never going to do what Mother Sylvia "The Silver Shark" wants him to do. Instead of catering to high profile wealthy clients, Gibson chooses to serve the 'down on their luck' sector, earning him the nickname Community Lawyer. His career might implode before he has the chance to open his dream law firm, but come hell or high water, he's going to get his newest client divorced so she can start a new life.

With him.

Vanessa swears she's ready to move on, to be rid of Warren Jackson, but she's holding on to a piece of her past that she doesn't want Gibson to know. When he finds out, it could change everything.

Meet DL White

For as long as I can remember, I would much rather be in my room reading and writing than doing anything else, but I began seriously pursuing a writing career in 2011. 

I love coffee and Sunday Brunch, especially on a patio, but my true obsession is water— lakes, rivers, oceans, waterfalls! And sand... dig your toes in, soft! On the weekend, you’ll probably find me near water and if I’m lucky, on an ocean beach. 

By day I am an Executive Administrative Assistant. By night, when I’m not writing books, I’m devouring them. I blog my reviews and thoughts on writing at BooksbyDLWhite.com. 
I hope you enjoy this and many more of my books!

Sunday Series Spotlight: Two Series written by Jody Kaye

Canvas by Jody Kaye

—Mitch—
Every woman I get involved with proves that it’s better to live without loving anyone. I learned a long time ago that my mother was out to destroy my father using the best weapon she had: me. So keeping the people that I can’t help care about at arm's length is safer for everyone. As much as I'd like to change this it’s not worthwhile. When I show back up in Rollinsford, my crazy stepsister’s new best friend shows me everything I could have. Or rather, everything I have yet to lose. You know what sucks the worst? We’d be perfect together if either us could get past our broken hearts.

—Lindsey—
In a short time at Rollins University, I’ve managed to wreck my reputation. Mitch is one of the few who knows the underlying truth of what actually happened. He doesn’t hold my poor choices against me. But Megan’s self-destructive brother follows the pattern I need to fall out of. So why did I fall so hard and fast for a guy who can't decide if he only wants to be friends? And how do I put my heart on the line again for a guy like this?

Imprint (Canvas Book Two) by Jody Kaye

I shouldn’t have kissed Lindsey the morning after her husband died…
Letting Lindsey walk away from me should have kept her safe from the unhappiness in life. Now Jason, the man I let her leave me for, is dead and Lindsey is back in Rollinsford. I’m doing everything to make it up to her. While I still can’t have Lindsey, maybe I can help her.

I shouldn’t have let Mitch think that kiss was about us…
All I wanted in that moment was my husband back. The guilt of betraying Jason’s memory is killing me and letting Mitch take the blame for that kiss was wrong. To make matters worse, he’s pulling the friend card. I can see us slipping back into the rhythm of our lives when we were young. But Mitch still battles his long-standing demons and plans to leave Rollinsford with his fiancée after their wedding. That’s fine. He’s pushed me away before. Although, I’m not sure what to do if he hurts my daughter in the process.

Eric (The Kingsbrier Quintuplets Book One) by Jody Kaye

At eighteen the future is uncertain, but Ginny Adair knows one thing. She loves Eric Cavanaugh the way her mother loved her father before his death. She’d remain true to Eric for the rest of her life to regain the stability her parent’s marriage gave her as a child. And Eric’s notoriety as one of the infamous Kingsbrier Quintuplets—or even the fact that his granddaddy left each of the quints more money than God? That means nothing because she knows the real Eric. Yet, Ginny’s not so sure how they’ll manage to stay together when she leaves for college in the fall, and if Eric will still want her four years from now.

Level-headed Eric Cavanaugh has a plan and he intends to stick to it. About to graduate high school, Eric’s marked a clear path toward his future. After working alongside construction crews throughout high school, Eric is the sole quint choosing to stay behind to learn the ropes at the family business. Patience paid off when he went after Ginny to make her his girlfriend. Someday down the line, Eric’s going to make the gorgeous blonde with a heart of gold his wife. 

When Ginny's forced to admit to the lengths she’s gone to keep Eric will her deceit become the roadblock that tears them apart or the stepping stone to a different life neither had imagined?

Brier (The Kingsbrier Quintuplets Book Two) by Jody Kaye

If growing up as a quintuplet wasn’t hard enough, wild Brier Cavanaugh also had to wonder what men love more—her or her trust fund?

Brier’s defiant streak kept that hurt away. No one was going to tell her what to do or how to live. She left Kingsbrier unwilling to let the man she’s always refused to acknowledge she loves stop her from pursuing her dreams. Now, despite a fulfilling career as a police officer, Brier knows that something is missing from her life. The more distance she puts between herself and her family, the more empty she is becoming. When circumstances bring her back home, Brier confronts the one person she’s avoided for years.

Drew Newhouse, a professional football player and Brier's childhood sweetheart, has never backed down from a challenge. Brier has pushed him away more than once and Drew has given her space because he knows they've always been meant to be. This time, he's playing for keeps. With the help of the other quints, will Drew be able to win her trust and marry the woman he loves? Can Brier put her heart on the line and finally give Drew the chance they both deserve?

At the same time, Brier's baby sister, Daveigh, is struggling with her own role in the family. It was one thing being shielded by her siblings when she was young, but she's not a little girl anymore. It's becoming harder for Daveigh to make her way in the world as the woman she is destined to be. If her overprotective brothers would just stop thinking they are doing what is best to keep her safe.

Daveigh (The Kingsbrier Quintuplets Book Three) by Jody Kaye

Cris Sanchez prefers to admire Daveigh Cavanaugh from afar. He’s a widower with a young son. She’s the boss’s daughter. The eight years that separate their age—and the exact time that Daveigh has been away for college and veterinary school—should have sealed their fate. Instead, Cris’s dedication to the family business and Daveigh’s love of animals has drawn them close. Now the pair must contend with the impending loss of a confidant they've shared for close
to a decade.

Daveigh has returned to Kingsbrier harboring a secret, but none that cuts as deep as the one Cris has held onto. After allowing herself time to heal, will Daveigh find strength in their friendship to return to her studies? Or will she settle for half her dreams for the chance to be with the man she’s always loved? After admitting to his responsibility in his wife’s death, can Cris relinquish the past that haunts him? Or will he and Daveigh continue down separate paths?

Daveigh (The Kingsbrier Quintuplets Book Three) by Jody Kaye

Cris Sanchez’s world was turned upside down when his wife died. He never expected to find that kind of happiness again—let alone at Kingsbrier… Since she was eighteen, Daveigh Cavanaugh has never loved anyone but Kingsbrier’s ranch manager, Cris. Their family’s roots have intertwined, giving both wings to build the life they both deserve.

Now Cris and Daveigh are finally getting married. Though, Daveigh never thought her momma would be the one stopping her from having the kind of wedding day she’s always wanted.

Meet Jody Kaye

Jody's husband asked what she'd been doing all day. After five years she finally confessed, "When no one is around, I write."

Okay, It was more like trying to get out of saying a thing. Jody's a writer. You want it pretty. Let's compromise.

"Just finish one," he said, challenging her to complete a story and share it. Little did he know that those words of encouragement meant they’d return from a family vacation with a wild and defiant set of quintuplets stumbling their way into adulthood. Wasn’t raising their three sons enough? 

A native of nowhere, Jody settled in New England for 17 years before agreeing to uproot her brood of boys and move to North Carolina. She spends most of her time reading, writing, and hoping that her ravenous children haven’t managed to eat all the ingredients before she cooks dinner.

Sunday Spotlight: Rope n’ Ride Series by Em Petrova

Buck (Rope 'n Ride Series Book One) by Em Petrova

It ain’t easy being a rodeo reality star—especially when you’re expected to marry your ex.

After a TV network approaches the six Calhoun family members about doing a rodeo reality show, they jump on the opportunity for even more income needed to keep their ranch in the family. But now that Buck’s knee-deep in film crews, he wishes like hell he could un-sign his name from that contract. Having his personal business aired is no damn fun, and America doesn’t know his fiancée broke things off with him.

Channing loved Buck the moment she spotted him on top of his powerful horse. But she’s had enough of his cool, emotionless personality and she wants out. Only she signed up for this reality series, and she needs that cold hard cash to keep her brother out of the hands of the thugs he owes for gambling debts.

For Buck and Channing, pretending all is well is difficult. Keeping their hands off each other is impossible, and throwing the film crews off their horny scent is a challenge that’s becoming fun. Channing is starting to view Buck in a brand new light. And he sees her true colors when she finds a way to help the whole Calhoun family. Maybe she really will get that wedding ring and his last name.


Ryder (Rope 'n Ride Series Book Two) by Em Petrova

Ryder Calhoun would rather face down an angry bull than commit to a relationship. And that’s exactly what every woman he encounters seems to be after. He’s a championship bull rider, and his family’s reality show is a big hit. He’s not into gold-diggers or Buckle Bunnies who are after the prize—him.

Joy Humphries is rodeo royalty—her dad is a big name in bull riding and she knows what the life’s all about. She also knows men like Ryder Calhoun. Strong, capable and reportedly dashing between the sheets, though Daddy wouldn’t let her hook up with a rodeo man even if she wanted to. But the more she’s around Ryder, the more she thinks he might be different. Or is that all an act for the cameras?

Ryder can’t complete a thought that doesn’t have Joy attached to it in some way. He doesn’t care if she’s slapping his face or letting him kiss her silly—just being around her is enough for him. Trouble is they can’t escape the camera crew, and her father seems to pop up around every turn. There’s also a not-so-little problem with her distracting him in the arena, and he needs these wins to help his family. 

Maybe he should just give up on Joy, because the only thing worse than falling for a forbidden woman is doing it in front of reality TV cameras.


Ridge (Rope 'n Ride Series Book Three) by Em Petrova

Grab the popcorn—someone is about to get slapped or kicked on this episode of Rope ’n Ride.

The season finale of the Calhouns’ rodeo reality show ends with Ridge being stood up by the woman he loves and humiliated on national TV. If that isn’t bad enough, an old knee injury has him wincing every time he gets on the back of a bronco, making it difficult to put winning scores up on the board. But he’s determined to shake off his streak of bad luck—and all these marriage proposals from fans pouring in now that the show has aired.

Kashley grew up with the Calhouns, playing hide and seek in the cornfields while their fathers talked ranching. And she’s been in love with Ridge…well, forever. He’s never noticed and she’s too shy to make any attempts, but when she sees him struggling after his breakup, coming to his aid is a no-brainer. Which lands her on a whirlwind tour of rodeos, where she’s falling more for him while struggling to rein in his self-destructive behavior.

The cameras love to catch Ridge losing his cool, his family is riding him to cut it out and he can’t keep his eyes—or every other body part off Kashley. Then a secret is revealed that has him going after her ex even as his own ex pops into his life again. Between the drama, his old injury and Wranglers that fit too tight after being around the woman he shouldn’t toy with, Ridge is fed up. Plus he couldn’t be in love again so soon, right?


West (Rope 'n Ride Series Book Four) by Em Petrova

It’s hard to resist a bad boy who’s a good man.

But that’s exactly what Malou Bullers, M.D. is trying to do. While working as the rodeo doc, she turns a blind eye to the bulging biceps and Wrangler butts that pass by. Except for one cowboy—and he’s worst of all. West Calhoun is a womanizer, plain and simple. The tie-down roper and reality TV star is never seen twice with the same woman. 

When he’s not busy on his family’s growing ranch or trying to keep the TV cameras on his good side, West has his eyes on that big win. But he’s distracted by the eccentric new-age rodeo doctor. After a one-night stand with Malou, he’s hooked, but convincing her that he isn’t with a dozen other women might be more challenging than taking on a herd of angry bulls. 

Meanwhile, a new TV producer is luring West with the promise of a spinoff show and big money that will help his family. But with Malou avoiding him, he’s got troubles that won’t be helped once her secret is revealed, sending West into a tailspin. Can she walk away from the best man she’s ever known? 


Lane (Rope 'n Ride Series Book Five) by Em Petrova

Dating an older woman has lots of benefits, and #1 is upsetting all the right people.

Lane Calhoun is on a winning streak in his steer wrestling event. His family is thriving, and their reality TV show is breaking records. So why can’t he find happiness? Well, it could be that a passing fling splashed his favorite sex positions all over the news. And now that he’s been named the year’s most eligible bachelor, he’s through with dating.

When Delaney Monroe spies a gorgeous cowboy in chaps, hat and the sexiest grin she’s ever seen, she forgets she’s a forty-two-year-old midwife with a failing small ranch and a son in college to support. No way could she date a younger man. But as soon as she and Lane get within eyeing distance, all bets are off.

Hiding out in the bed of a hot older woman sure sounds cozy to Lane. He’s tired of cameras, interviews and worse, false people. He just wants a spell of peace—is that wrong? But between his struggles to leave the reality show and Delaney’s problem with him being a few years shy of her, their paradise could end up as a mudhole. He only sees one path to freedom, but getting out of the next year’s TV contract means the end for the Rope ‘n Ride show.


Wynonna (Rope 'n Ride Series Book Six) by Em Petrova

What if the man you’re in love with isn’t the one you plan to marry?

Wynonna Calhoun is a barrel racing champion and reality TV star. She’s sick of both of those roles and is ready to settle down like her brothers and work more with her horses. She’s also newly engaged, but everyone’s saying her fiancé isn’t right for her. Even the ranch foreman, Maverick, has put in his two cents on the topic, and he has no right when he avoids her like she’s just rolled in manure.

No freakin’ way is Mav letting Wynonna marry an asshole like that. Her daddy would rise from his grave if he knew, and Mav won’t let the Calhoun princess make the mistake of walking down the aisle with a man who’s soft. Especially since Mav knows all too well that she likes ‘em rough. Mav struggles to keep his hands off the brazen redheaded mistress of sass, but he’s no good for anyone, not with his history. Besides, he’s too old for her.

Wynonna wishes Mav would own up to his feelings about her. She can’t help but think his troubles are rooted back in Oregon at his family’s feet, and she’s due for a vacation anyhow. But when she winds up deliriously ill, she only calls out for one man, and it isn’t the one she’d planned on marrying. Now she needs a plan to make him realize he’s perfect for her.

Love By The Slice
by Heather Young-Nichols

 

 

BLURB:


What’s better? Love, or pizza? Definitely pizza.
Bianca Russo is obsessed with Romano’s; her grandfather’s pizza parlor comes with a lot of memories, as well as trouble. A secret sauce recipe handed down through generations keeps Romano’s popular with tourists and locals alike. It’s so good, several corporations have offered to buy the business… and have even attempted to steal the recipe that makes Romano’s pizza great.
Bianca came to help her grandfather run the parlor. She didn’t expect to find a hot Italian working there with her.
Gio Diamati is ridiculously sexy, and he sure can throw a pizza. Their chemistry is instant, their romance forbidden and delicious. Bianca refuses to date Gio because they work together, but she can’t deny the truth her heart betrays… she’s falling for him.
But Gio isn’t there for the money. He’s there for the sauce.
Gio wasn’t supposed to fall in love during his mission to discover Romano’s secret recipe, but that’s just what he did. Now, he has to choose between the family who has given him everything, or the girl he can’t stop thinking about.
Gio must decide… his obligations? Or his heart?
Mysterious, romantic, and full of twists and betrayal, Love by the Slice is a new adult contemporary romance novel featuring laughs, pizza, sweet kisses, and erotic nights. This college-age story is a heartbreaking and endearing tale about forbidden love and second chances.

Snippet #1


“Hey.” I shook his hand as his eyes roamed my body from top to bottom which warmed my blood. Yeah, it probably should have bugged me but it didn’t. I didn’t mind him looking even if I only wore shorts and a tank top.
I’m pretty sure Gio could’ve been wearing a trash bag and it would’ve been the hottest trash bag in the world. The man was gorgeous.
Standing six feet, maybe a touch more, Gio looked like a mountain next to my five feet and a couple of inches. The way the white t-shirt stretched across his chest led me to believe I wanted to see what was underneath and it’d be worth any wait. On top of all the hotness, Gio had a face that made you want to slap your Italian grandma. Nice olive skin perfectly complementing short black hair and dark, almost black, eyes.
I was light where he was dark. I was soft where he was hard. And boy was his body hard.


Snippet #2


Suddenly, he stopped. Both of his hands fisted against the counter on either side of my thighs while his head dropped as he stared at the floor, his eyes squeezed shut. What the what? I wondered what I may have done wrong but nothing came to mind, tried to find the moment when things had changed but there wasn’t one. He took deep breaths but avoided any eye contact with me.
“I can’t do this,” he said softly.
Thinking he was trying to be chivalrous, I pushed my knee against the front of his pants.
“I think you can,” I said trying to sound and look as enticing as possible.
“That’s not what I meant.” His fingers wrapped around my wrist to pull it away from his chest. The gentleness with which he did it crushed me. Was he turning me down? With as hard as he’d tried in the beginning and the way he seemed to enjoy spending time with me, it was hard to fathom he might not want it as much as I did. I refused to believe that. Something else had to be going on.
Finally, he looked up at me, our eyes locking in some sort of nonverbal showdown. I tried to read whatever he had going through his head. He definitely had desire sparkling within those beautiful brown orbs, but why he’d stopped wasn’t clear. At first. And then it felt like a slap to the face. It was me.
“O…oh…ok.” I stammered past the humiliation. “You mean you can’t do it with me. Got it.”
“Bianca—”


Snippet #3


“Come on,” I took his arm pulling him into my apartment. Grabbing a bag of frozen peas, I tossed it to him then plopped onto the couch. He followed, dropping the bag onto his crotch with a groan. He hadn’t said anything. I didn’t know if it he couldn’t or if he had nothing to say in response to being hit in the nuts.
“I deserved that. She’s right,” he finally said.
“Yeah, she kind of hates you.”
“Is she the only one? Do you want a shot at my junk?” He didn’t sound like he was kidding. Like he would gladly stand there and let me injure him further if it’d make me feel better.
I’d be lying if I said my ovaries hadn’t been jumping like a basketball since he’d been back. Only now I let my head do the thinking. “I’m good. Thanks for the offer, though.” I guessed it was time for grown-up talk. “I don’t hate you. I tried to, but it never took. I’d steer clear of my dad, though.”
“You told them…everything. Everything?”
I nodded.
He squeezed his eyes shut as if he’d been punched again. “Then I deserve for him to kick my ass, too.”

Locked-Down Heart
by Tarina Deaton



Blurb:
Denise Reynolds’s tightly controlled life is thrown off kilter when she’s given custody of her young cousins. There are days she has a hard enough time getting herself out of bed, never mind two precocious kids.


If that wasn’t enough, Chris Nolton comes strolling back into town as suddenly as he left it. She’d broken her own rules and given him a chance once before, only to have him ghost on her. But he’s not there for her this time. No, he’s leading the FBI Task Force intent on capturing the kids’ biological father. A man who was sent to prison for manslaughter. A man who was released five years too early. A man who wants his kids back.


The past has a way of repeating itself and once again, Denise finds herself defending the innocent against the evil of world. One wrong decision, one second guess, could have devastating consequences. To protect the most important people in her life, she’ll need to trust the one man with the power to break her.

Excerpt #1
Denise was half-way across the yard when lightening split the sky and struck one of the trees in the field next to the barn.
Fists clenched at her side, she screamed into the storm. Everything came crashing down on her—the anger, the pain, the fear and uncertainty pressed mercilessly down on her and she could bear the weight of it any longer. Her knees bucked and she sank to the ground.
Violent sobs forced their way out of her chest. The storm raged and crashed around her echoing the one inside her. A small, rational section of her brain told her to get her dumb ass up and out of the rain, but she couldn’t make her limbs move. Couldn’t find the strength to keep pushing forward.
“Denise! Denise!”
Hands grabbed her upper arms, jerking her out of her stupor.
Surging to her feet, she fought the person holding her, pushing away from them.
“Denise, it’s Chris!”
She didn’t care. She needed to lash out and hurt something—someone. Use her fists to transfer some of the pain and anger away from her onto someone else.
Her fist connected with a hard wall of flesh, followed by a muffled, “oomph.”
“You wanna let it out?” He shouted. “Have at it.”
“Fuck you!” She threw a left jab, followed by a right hook to his jaw, snapping his head to the side.
He turned his head back and laughed. “That’s it?”
“Fuck! You!” She shoved him and forced him back a step.
He took two forward, crowding into her space. The thin material of his t-shirt moulded to his chest and abs while water dripped from his face. He held his arms out to the side, daring her to hit him again. “Come on, Denise. I know you can do better than that. Give me your worst.”




Excerpt #2
Chris reclined the driver’s seat back a few more inches. He’d been sitting in his truck for almost three hours. Bree’s car had been in the drive when he arrived, so he’d parked a few houses down to avoid her spotting his truck. Denise had walked her to the door thirty minutes ago and a few lights had gone off.
Glancing down at this phone, he dimmed the brightness and opened his ebook app. Rereading Pet Sematary would keep him awake, even if it made him damn glad he didn’t own a cat.
The phone rang, Denise’s name appearing on the screen. “Hey.”
“Hey.” She didn’t say anything else.
“Everything okay?” He looked up the street toward her house.
“I’m not sure.”
He sat up straight and scanned around the house for anything unusual. “What do you mean?”
“I think I should call the cops.”
He couldn’t see anything from where he was parked. Was something going on at the back of the house? He thumbed the control to raise the back of his seat. “What’s going on?”
“I think there’s a creeper parked down the street.”
He paused with his hand on the ignition button. “A what?”
“You know…a creeper. Stalker. Weirdo.”
He relaxed back into his seat. “Why does it have to be a weirdo?” Guaranteed she’d spotted him and was fucking with him.
“Well, he keeps shifting around in his seat like he’s rubbing one out.”
“I’m—” A knock on the passenger side window interrupted him. Sighing, he ended the call and unlocked the doors.
Denise climbed inside and pulled the door shut. “Whatcha doin’?”
Not rubbing one out.”
“So I can see.” She glanced down at his lap.

Excerpt:
Denise glanced through the peephole, then rocked back on her heels.
The bottom dropped out of her stomach then rushed up again to choke her. What the fuck? She stared at the door, trying to decide if she should open it or not.
Three more sharp knocks made the decision for her.
She unlocked the door and yanked it open.
“What the hell are you doing here?” she demanded.
Chris took a step back. Whether from the door opening suddenly, her, or her question, she wasn’t sure. He looks tired. It wasn’t her problem. Never was.
“Denise?”
“Yes, Chris. What are you doing here?”
The lines between his dark eyebrows grew more pronounced.“What are you doing here?”
His strong jaw was covered with stubble, accentuating the lines of his mouth. A mouth that was surprisingly soft, especially when it grazed over her skin. Her nipples pebbled under her thin t-shirt. Damn her traitorous body. It’d been almost seven months since he’d ghosted, it should have gotten the message by now and forgotten him.
“I asked first.” She set her gun on the high shelf above the coat hooks and grabbed the zip-up hoodie hanging by the door, zipping it half way up.
“Why are you answering the door with a gun?” he asked.
“Because this isn’t the greatest neighborhood and some asshole was pounding on my door.” The neighborhood sucked. It wasn’t the greatest when Sarah bought the small three-bedroom house and it had only gotten worse in the last five years. She was pretty sure her neighbor two doors down was dealing. As long as he wasn’t cooking, and he kept it to his doorstep, she was willing to over look it. But Kimber and Kaden were going to her parents’ the minute the school year was over.
“Why are you here?” She enunciated the question this time. She needed a quick answer so she could work on forgetting Christopher Nolton. Again.
“I’m looking for Sarah Reed.”
Her shoulders sagged and she rubbed her hand over her eyes. “She’s not here.”
“When will she be back?”
Denise glanced over her shoulder. Sprocket sat in the opening of the short hall that led to the two small bedrooms at the back of the house. She let out a low woof and laid down, resting her head on her paws. She sensed Denise’s stress, but was doing what she’d been told to do.
Denise stepped out of the house and pulled the door shut behind her, leaving it cracked. Chris stepped back on the small concrete pad.
“She’s not coming back. She’s in the hospital with terminal cancer.”
Light dawned behind his eyes. “Shit. She’s your cousin.” Chris ran his hands over his hair. It had grown long and now curled around his ears and jawline. If it weren’t for the stubble and dark circles under his eyes, he’d look boyishly charming. Things she should not be noticing.
