“I could make you go in with me if I wanted to.”
I caught my bodyguard’s unwavering gaze in the mirror. As my personal security, Tony Avery with his dubious past was paid to be by my side whenever I left the CAHTech building. As his boss he should do what I say, right? At least that was how I imagined it worked, but clearly said dubious past made Tony unaware of official protocol.
“For the last time, I’m not coming in with you,” Tony stared at me, and of course it was me that backed down first.
“I should fire you,” I mumbled to myself, forgetting that dubious past meant my bodyguard had the hearing of a bat, the slyness of the fox, and the brawn of a huge fuck-off bear.
“You can’t fire me,” Tony said. “You didn’t hire me.”
“I can if I want to,” I channeled my inner whiny child—the one from a childhood I never even had but could always imagine—and sat back in the seat with my arms crossed.
“You need to get out of the car, sir.” Tony added the sir with a forceful tone, and I winced.
“I like it in here,” I defended. Hell, why anyone would want to leave this gorgeous tricked out Escalade with its bomb-proof this, and its assassin-proof that, not to mention it had an awesome refrigerator that held my Doctor Pepper collection, and a cubby for my spare glasses. It was safe inside here, and the only person I had to deal with was Tony, who understood me well enough to leave me alone. Outside the door was the rest of the world, and I didn’t have much time for that.
“I’m counting down from five, sir.”
Jesus. “I’m not a child.”
“Tony, this is ridiculous—”
“It’s not like Jeremiah and Brianna will miss me if I don’t go in—”
“Why do I even have to do this? I visited last week—”
“It was a month ago. Also, two.”
I curled my fingers around the handle and frowned at Tony’s reflection. “I’m seriously going to get you fired.”
“No. You’re not. Also, one.”
Release date - 26 August
Love doesn’t have a formula. It’s messy, unpredictable, and impossible to control for the shy billionaire inventor and the hockey player who believes he’s lost everything.
Moral “Dunny” Dunkirk has a passion for life. A robust outdoorsman, lover of life, and one of the Boston Rebels fan favorites, Dunny has always embraced excitement and the drive to try new things. During his inaugural flight behind the controls of a small plane, the fates decide to test his mettle in a way that he had never envisioned. When everything crashes down around him, he’s lost in depression and alone in his cabin, facing an existence that is nothing like the one he previously led. Desperate to find some hope, Dunny reaches out to The Harvey Foundation who might be able to help, and he soon finds himself being lifted out of the pit of darkness he’d fallen into one shy, quirky, uplifting smile at a time.
Accidental billionaire and eccentric inventor Cooper Harvey is only happy in the seclusion of his lab, creating new and wonderful things he is sure will make the world a better place. Other than being blackmailed into spending every fourth Sunday at his PA’s house for dinner, he avoids the chaos of the world, and if that means no social life, then he’s okay with that. In the most splendid isolation money can buy, he escapes the complicated and difficult emotions surrounding attraction, and his single-minded focus means that sex and love are way down his list. When his latest invention reaches the testing stage, he would normally hand it over to his development team, but a chance meeting with the test subject makes him rethink. Something about the hockey player who’d lost it all makes him think life isn’t all about measured chemical reactions, and sometimes it’s just about the craziness of love.More info →
