***THE SCAVENGER HUNT***
The Trio. That’s who we’ve been since birth: Nate, Leo . . . and me, Quinn, the token girl. Our mothers met in prenatal yoga and became best friends, which meant that the three of us hit every milestone together, from the first day of school to the very first kiss.
We’ve always known that Nate’s a little different. He’s not as strong as Leo or me; he spent a lot of our childhood in various hospitals. Leo and I have been his unofficial bodyguards all our lives. I thought that would always be true.
But time moves on, and everything shifts. People change, and sometimes friendships fade away. High school pulled us apart: Leo’s suddenly the most popular guy in school, a football star and the subject of every girl’s fantasy. Nate and I are just people he used to know, the ones he left behind.
Of course, since I’ve been in love with Leo from the time we were eight, that stings a little.
And to complicate matters, I know that Nate is hung up on me. I see the look in his eyes. I wish I could say I felt the same, but I don’t. It’s getting harder and harder to keep him in the friend zone, though.
Then Leo and I are thrown together again, sticking up for Nate. I was surprised Leo came through for us and even more shocked when he kissed me. Me! Am I finally getting my chance with Leo . . . and will it come at the risk of losing both my best friends?
The newspaper office was empty for once, and as much as I liked all my staff, today I was happy for a little peace and quiet. It was my week for writing the main editorial, and I needed to focus.
I’d just finished the first paragraph when I sensed someone behind me. Before I could turn, a pair of large hands covered my eyes and a familiar voice murmured near my ear.
I couldn’t fight the smile that spread across my face, even though I tried to play it cool. “Hmm. Let me think.” Reaching back, I gripped a pair of muscled thighs under jeans that had been worn to buttery softness. “Ah, those legs. They feel pretty tempting. But I’m still not sure. I need another clue.”
“Do you?” Leo’s mouth was just below my earlobe, and his whisper made me shiver. “How’s this?” His tongue darted out to touch the sensitive skin on the side of my neck, and I leaned to give him better access. He slid his hands down my face, rough thumbs caressing my cheekbones and then my chin before they landed on my ribcage, bracketing my body.
My breath caught, and my heart began to thrum a staccato beat. Leo spread his fingers so that the tips skimmed my breasts, teasing but not quite touching.
“Anything ringing a bell yet?” He kissed the pulse at the base of my throat. “Think back to last night. Think of the guy who was between your—”
“Oh, it’s coming back to me now.” I turned my chair around and grinned up into his handsome face. “I remember you.”
“Good to know.” His voice was dry. “Though I’m kind of disappointed you didn’t need more, uh, reminding.”
“Reminding is always good.” I sighed. “I thought you were helping Dylan with his truck.”
He shrugged. “Didn’t take as long as we thought it would. Which means I find myself with some free time.”
I raised one eyebrow. “Just what are you going to do with that time, buddy?”
Leo braced his hands on the arms of my chair, leaning over and caging me in with his delectable body.
“I thought I might take my best girl out to eat. You know, a meal in an actual restaurant, where we sit and talk the whole time, instead of rushing off to practice or needing to go home to meet curfew.” His tempting mouth curled into a wicked smile, and his eyes glittered.
“What do you say, Mia? Will you go on a date with me?”
Holy Hotness, Batman! That’s definitely going on my TBR pile. How about you? And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Tawdra, and more!
To enter, you need to know that my lucky book number is 16 .

Husband just remembered that once, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, my kid replied, “I wanna be on stilts!” #soproud
