Kyle can have almost any woman he wants… except the one he wants most. If he falls for his boss’s daughter, it could be the biggest mistake of his life. He’s made more than his fair share. It would ruin his relationship with the man he considers almost a father, and besides, she deserves someone better than him anyway.
Kinleigh knows the minute she sees the bartender in her dad’s bar that they are meant to be together. She’s heard all about his good business head, how trustworthy he is, and how much potential he has… but learning he is also the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes on had cinched the deal. She might look sweet and innocent, but looks can be deceiving. She’ll do whatever it takes to show him they belong together.
Can they learn that trusting each other is the only way to find happiness?
Or will they let prejudices destroy their lives?

“Who are you looking for?” Madison asks, as she too scans the room.
“Kyle. Have you seen him?”
“Kyle?” She looks confused and pulls me over to sit in a nearby booth. “I thought you were actively avoiding Kyle?”
“I am. I mean, I was. I mean…” I cover my face with my hands and sigh. “I don’t know what I mean.”
“Well,” she laughs. “That much is obvious. Tell me what’s going on.”
“I don’t know. I’m happy dating Jeremy!”
“Why does that sound like you are trying to convince yourself more than me?” she asks.
“Jeremy is good for me. Kyle has made it well known that he doesn’t want a relationship and I’m not going to be a hook-up, so I need to let him go, once and for all.”
“But… Well, he’s been acting weird lately. He wants to talk. And now my dad is even asking if I’ve talked with Kyle and…”
Madison cocks an eyebrow. “Ronan wants you to talk with Kyle?”
“I know! Weird, right?”
“Extremely. Maybe you should. Maybe it will be just what you need to let him go.”
I smile sadly. “Maybe so.”
“You know…” She lowers her tone, conspiratorially. “Mike and I had issues in the beginning too.”
“Really?” I settle in for a story. “You guys are perfect together! I can’t imagine problems between you two!”
“I was dating his best friend and then…”
Madison and I both jump as we realize someone had walked all the way over to our booth without us noticing.
“We aren’t open yet,” Madison tells the woman.
“I know that,” she says as she hitches her purse strap higher on her shoulder. “I’m looking for Kyle.”
His name makes my head jerk around to face the stranger. She’s attractive with copper-streaked chestnut hair and pretty features, but there is hardness to her face that prevents her from being beautiful. Her skirt is barely long enough to cover the essentials and her white, fitted blouse has only one brave button straining to prevent her abundant chest from escaping.
“Why do you need Kyle?” I ask, too hurriedly, and I see her gaze narrow as she takes in my ponytail and pink sundress before dismissing me with a sneer.
“Who doesn’t need Kyle?” she asks with a laugh that makes acid churn in my stomach.
Madison comes to my rescue. “Well, he isn’t here yet. Care to leave a message?”
The woman drags her gaze away from me. “Sure. Tell him Tats stopped by to see him.”
“Tits? Your name is Tits?” Madison asks with a grin as she stares at the women’s chest with amusement.
“Tats! It’s short for Tatiana.” Her fury is evident, but she’s working to control it. “But tell him there’s no need to call. I’ll see him tomorrow anyway.” With that, she pivots on her dangerously high heels and leaves, not waiting for a reply.
Nausea hits me full force. I’d almost talked myself into believing that Kyle had changed and wanted to talk to me about a real future. I’m a fool.
Madison reaches across the table to squeeze my arm. “Don’t listen to her. You should still talk to Kyle.”
I laugh bitterly. “What’s the point?”

Stacey Brandon & Karen Bell Bio
Once upon a time, these two hookers became best friends…
Stacey Brandon and Karen Bell both live in the same small Texas town on the Gulf Coast, are happily married and the proud Moms of awesome kids. Stacey owns and runs a photography studio and Karen designs and sews her own children’s clothing line. They met over fifteen years ago when they decided to turn one large professional space into a single home for both businesses.
Well, that’s all the boring facts expected to be included in an “about the author” page, right? The reality is so much more fun. Stacey and Karen and their families spend holidays together, travel together… and generally turn every situation into something crazy and chaotic. They are both fluent in English, Sarcasm and Profanity and have decided the irrefutable proof of their best friend status is how often people assume they are “together” when in public. The poor husbands are good sports about it… and might even encourage this misconception at times for sheer entertainment value.
When Karen battled cancer… and kicked its ass… in 2014, they learned to value every day and quit worrying about what others think. Do what you love! Karen is happy to take advantage of the situation though. She loves to remind everyone she “had the CANCER, dammit!” and now she can always and forever claim the last brownie ;)
