If she has her way…

 

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her…

 

…He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

 

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him…

 

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice…

 

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but he doesn’t even remember her. How can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish–and let the mistletoe do its work…

EXCERPT:

 

Willa sighed and headed to the door.

 

Again Keane held the pink bedazzled cat carrier, which should have made him look ridiculous. Instead it somehow upped his testosterone levels. His sharp eyes were on her but they turned warm in a way that melted her right through her center as she moved toward him. She stopped with the glass door between them, hands on hips, hoping she looked irritated even if that wasn’t quite what she was feeling.

 

His gaze lowered from her face to run over her body, which gave her another unwelcome rush of heat. Dammit. Now she was irritated and aroused—not a good combo.

 

His mouth quirked at the saying on her apron that read Dear Santa, I Can Explain.

 

Drawing a deep breath, she opened the door. “You’ve got Petunia again. I hope that means your great-aunt Sally isn’t still sick.”

 

He looked surprised that she’d remembered his aunt’s name, or that she’d care. “I don’t know,” he said a little gruffly. “She left me a message saying that I was in charge for the rest of the week but for two days now Pita’s been happily destroying my jobsite. I’m throwing myself on your mercy here. Can you help?”

 

Wow. He must be really desperate since he was actually asking and not assuming. But since Petunia was a sweetheart, she knew she’d do it.

 

“I’ll even tell you where I went to high school,” he said, adding a smile that was shockingly charming.

 

Wow. He hadn’t lost his touch when it came to turning it on. “Not necessary,” she said, painfully aware of their audience.

 

Keane’s attention was suddenly directed upward, just above her head. She followed his line of sight and found a sprig of mistletoe hanging from the overhead display of small portable doggy pools. Mistletoe? What the hell? She glanced behind her and what do you know, suddenly Rory and Cara were a flurry of movement racing around looking very, very busy. “When did the mistletoe go up?” she asked them. “And why?”

 

“FOMO,” Cara said from behind the counter.

 

“Fear of missing out,” Rory translated. “She was hoping a hot guy would come in and the mistletoe would give her an excuse.”

 

Willa narrowed her eyes and her two soon-to-be-dead employees scattered again.

 

“Interesting,” Keane said, looking amused.

 

“I’m not kissing you.”

 

His mouth curved. “If you take Pita for the day, I’ll kiss you.”

 

“Not necessary,” she said, gratified no one could see her heart during the two-step in her ears. “I’ll take Petunia for the day. No kiss required or wanted.”

 

Liar, liar…

The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay, #2)The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 2 in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in the order intended.

Keane & Willa have a past. Not a good one, nothing worth remembering. So why is Willa so mad that Keane doesn’t remember?

Willa is surrounded by friends as her family now. She makes her own way in the world. Now, a sexy piece of her past has bulldozed his way back into her life. Can they learn to forgive and move on?

This is such an amazing series. The characters are deep, the sexy scenes are HOT, and the friendships are forever. I am truly impressed and eagerly awaiting the next book.

Blog Tour – Dalir’s Salvation

 

 

Will the two of them be strong enough to fight for their newfound love – and their lives?

 

 

 

 

About DALIR’S SALVATION

 

Ari is looking to live a normal life. But after she hits her head, normal is no longer an option. A mysterious, rugged man appears, whom only she can see…each night he fulfills her fantasies and leavers her begging for more. She’s sure he’s a figment of her imagination – until she finds o, to truly be with him, Ari will have to embrace the parts of herself she’s been desperately keeping at bay. Dalir’s been burned by love before, yet he can’t resist Ari’s beauty and charm. And all it takes is one kiss to spark nights of passion. But there’s danger on the horizon that only Dalir and his friends in the band Thane’s Redemption can deal with. And the longer he stays with Ari, the greater the peril to them both. Will the two of them be strong enough to fight for their newfound love – and their lives?

 

 

 

Read and exclusive excerpt from DALIR‘S SALVATION:

 

 

 

Ari slipped her keys into the large, beige purse hanging on her shoulder. She released an exasperated exhale. “I don’t need a babysitter.”

 

The hell she didn’t. She should have realized her limitations and let someone else climb the ladder for what she needed.

 

If it makes you feel any better, you’re doing me a favor.” Brooke laid her backpack on the yellow couch. “I have an important paper to work on for my history class. My roommate doesn’t understand the definition of quiet, and I hate studying late at the campus library on weekends. Besides that, Celine would kill me if I didn’t take care of you.” The twenty-two-year-old, college junior smiled as she flipped her brown hair. “I’m staying.”

 

So am I.” Dalir stood in front of Ari.

 

Her jaw tightened as she gave him a withering stare. “In that case, you’re welcome to stay, Brooke. I’ll make up the guest bedroom.”

 

No need. Just tell me where to find a pillow and blanket. I can crash out on the couch. Not that I’ll be getting much sleep. I have a lot to do.” Brooke straightened the hem of her white T-shirt over the waist of her skinny jeans. She shooed Ari toward the hallway. “I’ll work on dinner while you get cleaned up.”

 

I didn’t make it to the store this week. Just order pizza. The menu is on the side of the fridge.” Ari stalked away. The mid-thigh length of her dress and her high heels emphasized Ari’s toned legs. Her hips swayed with every step.

 

Awareness flared. Dalir tamped it down. He needed to know what was going on. She had to stop blowing him off.

 

He phased down the hall and blocked her path into the bedroom. “It won’t work. I know you can hear and see me, Little One. Talk to me.”

 

Ari maneuvered past him. The chain shoulder strap on her purse jangled when she dropped it on top of the natural wood dresser. She slammed the door. “One. You do not boss me around. Two. I got stuffed into a space the size of a soda can because I talked to you, so as far as I’m concerned, we’re done communicating. And three,” she advanced on him, “call me Little One again and you’ll regret it.”

 

Difficult. Mouthy. She was definitely friends with Lauren and Celine.

 

I’m not leaving, Little One, until I get answers.”

 

She socked him in the stomach.

 

Caught off guard, Dalir hissed out a short breath. “You think you can take me?”

 

She glared up at him. “Say it again and find out.” One good junk punch and you’ll drop to your knees.

 

Her thought stung like a phantom slap to the cheek. He backed her up against the edge of the dresser.

 

The mirror shook. Perfume bottles rattled.

 

He planted his palms on either side of her. “I don’t think so.”

 

She lifted her chin. Too bad he’s such a jerk. Her thoughts grew louder in his mind. Look at all those muscles. I’m going with figment of my imagination over ghost. I hit my head. That makes better sense. Doesn’t it? Is it weird for me to be attracted to a figment of my imagination? Wait. What am I doing fighting with him in the first place? He’s my fantasy. I should be stripping him naked and getting my hands on all that goodness. What should I call him? Yummy should definitely be his middle name.

 

He caught a view of her conjured up image of him, shirtless, and her yanking down is zipper. Lust snaked through him. “Be careful what you wish for.”

 

She snickered. “You wish you knew what I wanted.”

About THANE’S REDEMPTION:

The one night she’ll want to remember, she’ll be forced to forget.

It’s been almost a year since Celine’s fiancé’s death and she’s still struggling to move on. But when she meets Thane, the super hot lead singer of Thane’s Redemption, she finds her desire reawakening, and her heart opening. Soon one kiss leads them straight into a night of heated passion…
 
Thane’s unexpected connection with Celine only leaves him wanting more of her—but his life makes it impossible. For Thane’s Redemption is just a cover for a deeper secret: A former Army Ranger presumed dead, Thane is really a time-traveling, covert operative charged with saving the world from disaster. Each jump through time forces those around him to forget he ever existed—and Celine would be no exception. But can time work in their favor to give them a second chance at love? Or will a choice Thane makes in the future put Celine in mortal danger?…

About REID’S DELIVERANCE:

Lauren isn’t looking for love when she spends a scintillating night with Reid, the sexy keyboardist of Thane’s Redemption. While their passion may be off the charts, her trust issues–and Reid’s secret life as a time-traveling covert agent–makes any chance for a relationship impossible. 

When operatives involved in a mysterious project begin dying, Reid defies orders and travels alone into the future to find the cause. But when things go dangerously awry, it takes all of his strength to get himself back to safety–and directly onto Lauren’s doorstep. While neither of them remembers their night of passion, their intense connection leads Lauren to help him. But as Reid’s memories reignite, will he be forced to sacrifice everything to finish his mission–including the woman he loves?

Blurb:

 

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

Carter? What are you doing?”

 

Shit.

 

I laughed under my breath and banged the back of my head against the wood. “Praying?”

 

Do you always breathe like that when you’re praying?”

 

It’s an intense prayer.”

 

What are you really doing?”

 

I think you might know what I’m really doing, Kendall.”

 

Can I come in?”

 

Still fully erect, I tucked my cock back into my pants as best I could before opening the door.

 

Her eyes trailed down to my massive erection. “I’m sorry….to make you resort to that.”

 

It’s okay. My hand and I haven’t spent time like this since I was a teenager. I think he missed me.”

 

What were you thinking about?”

 

You.”

 

Yeah…but what specifically?”

 

It was this fantasy of fucking you on the dance floor back at the club.”

 

She looked down at me again. Her expression was serious when she asked, “You need some help?”

 

I thought you said we weren’t going to go there.”

 

I can’t have sex with you. But I want to touch you. I could take my clothes off, let you finish what you started. You know…help you.”

 

Looking up at the ceiling, I shook my head. “You have no fucking clue, do you?”

 

What do you mean?”

 

How crazy you make me. There’s no halfway with you. Jerking off with your naked body right in front of me…not being able to do what I really want to you…would be torture. I don’t have that kind of willpower, not with you, not anymore. Even when I kiss you, all I can think about is burying myself inside of you. But you naked in front of me? Too much, Kendall. When you strip down for me, I want it to be when you’re ready to let me have you. Otherwise, it’s better if I don’t know what I’m missing out on.”

 

Looking filled with remorse, she waved her hands. “Okay. I get it. I’m sorry…for interrupting.”

 

Go back to bed. I’ll be right there.”

 

After Kendall left, I closed my eyes in regret. Was I crazy for turning her away like that?

 

Now that she knew what I was up to in here, I couldn’t relax. Still needing release like a motherfucker, I turned on the shower and got in. Ironically, I jerked myself to thoughts of her naked body against the bathroom door and imagined she was watching me.

 

Fuck my life.

But when their one-night rodeo turns into more than a rebound, Harmony worries her heart hasn’t healed enough to take on someone new—even if that someone is as sweet as he is sexy.

 

Tie-down roper Lucky Garcia can’t believe his good fortune. A shot at national finals and now this—his longtime crush, in his arms at last. The more time he spends with Harmony, the harder he falls for her. But financial demands and family responsibilities take him further and further away from her—as does his secret fear she hasn’t quite gotten over her dickhead ex.

 

Behind closed doors, Lucky and Harmony are filthy perfection. But when reality comes knocking, the star-crossed lovers must decide: walk away intact, or risk it all for a chance at happiness.

Excerpt:

 

They drove a short distance to a large, two-story house in an older part of town. Cars were parked up and down the street. The front of the house was lit up with floodlights. Lucky took her hand as they made their way up the concrete walkway.

 

You look so beautiful tonight,” he said as they climbed the steps.

 

Stop.”

 

No. I won’t. Don’t you know how beautiful you are, Harmony? Hermosa. Preciosa.

 

She smiled shyly at him. “You’re not so bad yourself, cowboy.” A little dimple formed in her left cheek. He wanted to lick it. He wanted to taste her. No—he needed to taste her.

 

Wait.” Right before she rang the doorbell, he leaned down and kissed those cherry red lips. He whispered, “You know, we don’t have to go in. We can just…get back in your car…drive back to your place…and have our own party.” He dropped tiny kisses along her jaw. Desire roared in his chest when her breath hitched in her throat. Her cheeks flushed pink. She paused, staring at him as though she were a heartbeat away from taking his suggestion.

 

Lucky held her gaze. “I’ve been thinking about you all week.” He brushed his fingertips back and forth across the cool, silken skin of her throat. “How about you? Have you been thinking about how good it was?” He lowered his lips to her ear. “Don’t you want to play together again?”

 

Her eyes fluttered closed. “Lucky,” she murmured.

 

You do, don’t you, belleza?” He rested his thumb lightly in the hollow of her throat. “Tell me the truth. You’ve been thinking about me, haven’t you?”

 

The pulse in her neck tapped wildly against his fingers. “Yes, but—”

 

Come on,” he whispered. “Let’s go.”

Forget chocolate and flowers. This homegrown honey is all the sweetness he craves.

 

Small-town life is nothing but a waiting room for eighteen-year-old honor student Corazón Gomez. Work and school leave little time for love, but with a full-ride Ivy League scholarship and a one-way ticket out of the boondocks, who needs it?

 

The answer appears on Valentine’s Day when her old cowboy crush ambles into the ice cream parlor where she works, inviting her to go on a late-night ride in his truck. For the first time she wavers between staying on the straight and narrow, and going off-road with the handsome heartbreaker.

 

After four years working on ranches all over the country, Caleb MacKinnon is back on the family farm helping out his mom and brothers while his father fights cancer. The one bright spot: smart, funny, and wickedly sexy Cora.

 

From the start, they both know this blazing-hot love affair can’t last. But when autumn comes and Cora has to leave for the East Coast, Caleb must find a solution to keep himself—and his heart—from falling apart.

Warning: Contains hard, cherry-poppin’ sex in a pickup truck and a cowboy charmer who talks dirty in two languages.

 

Book 1 Available at: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Google Books | Kobo | BAM

 

 

 

Ball-busting business woman meets no-holds-barred cowboy. He’s gonna need a longer rope…

 

Marketing hotshot Monica Kaur has put her big-city life on hold to help bail out her brother’s failing business. Now she’s got three months to plan and promote a rodeo, the first her tiny hometown has ever seen.

 

To ensure the rodeo’s success, Monica enlists a local hero, a rancher’s son who’s made a name for himself on the bull-riding circuit. Problem? She can’t stop daydreaming about the cocky bastard—and all the things she longs to do to him out behind the chutes.

 

Professional bullfighter Dean MacKinnon is home helping his family while his father fights cancer. Haunted by bad memories, jaded by love, Dean finds escape in a no-strings-attached go-round with brainy, sexy Monica, whose close-knit Sikh-American family would sooner run him out of town than see her with a notorious rodeo Romeo.

 

In private, Monica and Dean play as hard as they work. But as the rodeo draws near, that clean break they promised each other is getting more and more hung up in the rigging.

 

Book 2 Available at: Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads

 

 

 

For eight years, Melody Santos played the game of love and lost—big time. Now she’s back in her tiny hometown looking after her younger sister, making ends meet with an assortment of odd jobs. When her childhood best friend hires her to help him sell his family’s grass-fed beef, the last thing she anticipates is falling in lust with the legendary, brown-eyed player.

 

To put his family’s cattle ranch back in the black, Clark MacKinnon has his sights set on big contracts—gourmet chefs and restaurateurs. If that means long hours traveling from farmer’s market to farmer’s market, Clark doesn’t mind. Particularly since his new assistant is his childhood crush, all grown up and sexy as hell.

 

One night in bed leaves them breathless and hungry for more. But when his love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation collides with her trust issues, Clark and Melody must face the truth about what they’ve become: not friends, not lovers, but players in a game that’s impossible to win.

 

Warning: Contains filthy banter, raunchy sex, excessive Johnny Cash references, and hundreds of pounds of raw beef.

Cover Reveal – All Laced Up

 

Let us know what you think of the cover for All Laced Up (Breakaway #1) by Erin Fletcher, which releases October 10, 2016!

 

This cover reveal is brought to you by Entangled TEEN!

 

 

About All Laced Up:

Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey.

When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh. But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey.

Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing. Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one…

Disclaimer: This book contains a swoony hockey player (and his equally swoony friends!), one-too-many social media accounts, kisses that’ll melt ice, and a secret identity that might not be so secret after all…

Blurb:

 

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

About THREE SIMPLE WORDS:

 

Annie:

 

I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love. So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.

 

Wes:

 

The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league. Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated. Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow. The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.

 

 

 

 

About A.J. Pine:

 

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs. AJ Pine is the author of the If Only series, the Only You series, and the current Kingston Ale House series.

From the author of the On the Line and Fire on Ice hockey romance series comes a sultry novel featuring a brooding NHL player who’s hell on skates—and the no-nonsense woman who forces him to clean up his act.

 
Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?

 

Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

EXCERPT REVEAL:

Tony
doesn’t have much to say this morning. He dismisses the staff and I
stifle a groan when I look down at my assignment sheet and see I’ve
got the penthouses again.

Crap.
I still feel guilty about the shirt I ruined in one of the penthouses
yesterday. I also don’t want to run into another naked woman.

I
roll my cart of cleaning supplies onto the service elevator and
debate whether I should knock out Jake the stripper fucker’s room
first or put it off ’til last.

Might
as well get it out of the way. I knock on the door and announce
myself more loudly than usual.

Housekeeping!
Housekeeping coming in. Are there any naked people in here? Hello?”

Nothing.
I stood in the middle of the massive suite and look around. There’s
a glass on the counter and a gray sweatshirt thrown over the back of
a chair.

Hey.”

The
sound of a deep male voice makes me jump and screech. I actually
screech, the cry caught in my
throat before it escapes sounding more like a loud wail than a
scream.

A
tall, well-built man is leaning backward out the bathroom door, just
his head and shoulders showing.

What
the hell?” I put a palm on my chest and will my heart to resume its
normal pace.

This
is my room,” the man answers.

Yeah,
but . . . didn’t you hear me announcing myself?”

He
steps out of the bathroom wearing nothing but a white towel around
his waist and I see that “well built” doesn’t even begin to
describe him. His arms, chest and stomach are ripped. I didn’t even
know it was possible to have so much definition on ab muscles.

You
like the view?” he asks, giving me a cocky grin and glancing down
at his bare stomach.

Uh
. . .” I clear my throat and look up at his eyes, which are a
bright gray-blue. “No, I just . . .”

His
smile slips away. “What?”

Apparently
it’s been too long since I saw a man in a nothing but a towel. I
can’t even think straight right now.

No,”
I repeat, clearing my throat.

No,
you don’t like the view?”

It’s
okay, I guess.” That’s a lie, but I’m pretty sure this guy’s
self-esteem will survive.

He
hmm’s with amusement. “Want
me to drop the towel so you can get a closer look?”

No.
No, definitely . . . no.” I shake my head for emphasis.

Okay,”
he says, arching his brows and giving me a look that makes me sure he
thinks I’m crazy. “Yes, I heard you announce yourself, but I need
to talk to you so I didn’t want you to leave.”

Oh
God. He knows I stole his shirt.

I
give him an expectant look, trying to decide if I should own up to it
or deny it.

Deny,
deny, deny
. I can’t afford to lose this job.

You
guys fucked up the stuff I requested,” he says, walking over to the
suite’s kitchen area.

I
follow him, not noticing the outline of his very nice ass against the
towel. Not noticing it at all.

I
don’t want liters of Evian,”
he says, gesturing at the bottles of water on the counter. “I want
normal sized bottles. Sixteen ounces or whatever. And this”—he
holds up a bottle of amber alcohol—“is not gonna work. I’m not
a frat boy. I asked for Evan Williams 23 and I want Evan Williams 23.
I drink a shot of 23 after every win. This is really important.”
Not missing a beat, he moves on to the next thing. “I also need
Irish Spring soap.”

Irish
Spring?”

He
gives me an annoyed glare. “I’ve used that soap since high
school. I hate that flowery shit you guys have in your bathrooms.”

And
you want us to get these items for you?”

Right.
I’ll pay for everything, plus your time. I’ve got a rigorous
schedule and I don’t have time to run around shopping. My
housekeeper usually takes care of this stuff.”

Wow.
I can see why this guy hooks up with random strippers. What woman
would want to put up with him long term?
