Time for an exclusive excerpt from my next book, Falling for the Right Brother, book 1 in the Saved by the Blog series.
This just in, fair readers! That gorgeous new woman about town is none other than formerly frumpy Elle Owens. Apparently Miss Elle has been spotted with yummy contractor Cam Dumont…but we thought her heart belonged to his little brother. Are Cam and Elle a new couple? If this is love, let’s hope she’s picked the right brother. The Bayside Blogger will keep you posted.
He liked being around Elle. Most women wanted to talk about their feelings. Not that there was anything wrong with that when it was needed. But there was a lot to be said for enjoying a quiet moment.
Plus, she could hold her own with him.
And she could cook.
And she was gorgeous.
Sneaking a glance at her, he felt his heart practically stop. She’d let her hair out of its ponytail. Now the wind was moving through it, light brown strands flying around her face. The setting sun cast an aura over her that highlighted her smooth skin. Awash in light, with a dreamy expression on her face, she looked serene, calm. Exquisite.
Exquisite? Ah, hell. He liked her.
She turned her head at his oath. “What was that?” she asked, an amused expression on her face.
He couldn’t like her. Not if she had any feelings for his brother. That wouldn’t be right.
All he wanted to do was kiss her. With his body tensed and primed at her nearness, he desperately wanted to draw her to him. He wanted those lips on his, those arms around him.
He met her curious gaze. Why couldn’t she be weird or crazy or just not his type?
“What are you thinking?” she wondered aloud.
“Do you still have feelings for my brother?” he blurted. Idiot. Her face fell and then he cursed himself for that. “Sorry, it’s none of my business.”
“It’s okay,” she said, waving her hand. “Jasper…I never really knew Jasper.”
“You were in the same class.” It sounded like an accusation.
“That doesn’t mean anything.,” she said slowly, taking a step toward him. “Dinner last night was the longest we’ve ever talked.”
It hit Cam then, crystal clear. Jealousy over that dinner was what had been bothering him all day. What had kept him awake the night before.
Feeling irritated even now, he wanted to pace. But she was standing so close. He could smell her perfume, a flowery scent that mixed with the aromas from the kitchen. Shouldn’t go together, but to him, it was intoxicating.
“Look, Elle, just tell me, once and for all, do you have feelings for my brother?”
“No,” she practically screamed. “And for the record, I would never go after someone who was taken.”
“Great. I don’t want you to do that.”
“Then what do you want, Cam?”
“I want to kiss you.”
“So kiss me.”
I hope you enjoyed that little sneak peek into Falling for the Right Brother, which you can pre-order now.
