(From Goodreads) Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever . . .


I cradled my drink as Cam sauntered back to the pool tables. My mind wasn’t made up on the whole visiting them thing yet. Maybe I would. Maybe I wouldn’t.

“Want another rum and coke?”

My lips curled up at the sound of Nick’s rich, deep voice. We’d been chatting on and off since I plopped my butt down on the stool, and he had seemed happy that I was there.

Total bonus points lottery with this guy.

“I’m good, but thanks.” The last thing I wanted to be was drunk. I smiled at him, pleased when his heavily hooded gaze dipped again. “Are you guys usually this busy on the weekend?”

I could see that small talk was something Nick excelled at, which made sense, considering his occupation. He was an equal opportunity charmer. Women flocked to him at the bar. The other bartender, the girl with the pink glasses, seemed to take it all in stride.

“Not sure if you really call this busy, but Saturdays usually bring a larger crowd.” He glanced down the bar before continuing. “So you went to school with them?” he asked, jerking his chin in the direction Cam had roamed off to.

“Yeah.” Leaning forward, I placed my elbows on the bar. “I had no idea they had connections here. Total surprise.”

“Small world,” he said, echoing my earlier thought. “But you’re not very close with them.”

It was a statement, not a question. “What makes you think that?”

“Well, if you were, I guess you’d be over there with them. Or …”

Nick was observant. “Or what?”

One side of his lips curled up as he folded his arms across his chest. The movement drew my attention. I was such a visual creature. Not that anyone would blame me right now. The black shirt he wore stretched around well-defined biceps. “Or you’d rather spend the time with me.”

The twisty motion in my belly cranked up a notch. “Am I that transparent?”

“In the best possible way.” He picked up a bottle. “I’m glad you did stop by. Every time the door opened last night, I looked up and hoped it was you.”

“Is that so?”

“I speak the truth.” His smile was lazy. “Did you finish unpacking?”

“Yep.”

“Were there any more rat bastard combinations?”

I laughed. “There were a few more.”

“Kind of mad I missed out on them.”

“There’s always later.” I toyed with my glass as I met and held his stare. “So, Nick, do you have a last name?”

“Blanco,” he replied after a brief hesitation. “Do you?”

“Keith.” I grinned as he unfolded those arms. “I have another question for you.”

Moving in, he placed his hands on the bar. “Ask away.”

“Do you have a girlfriend?” My breath caught a little when he leaned in suddenly. Our mouths were close enough that we were breathing the same tiny patch of oxygen. “Or a boyfriend?”

Nick didn’t bat an eyelash. “Nope to both. How about you?”

Bonus points explosion!

“None,” I said, welcoming the tingle that swirled down my spine as his breath warmed my lips.

He tilted his head to the side, lining up his mouth with mine with just a fraction of an inch between us. I started to feel a little flushed. “You have plans tonight, Stephanie Keith?” he asked, voice deeper and rougher.

I shook my head as my pulse tripped all over itself in a happy little dance.

Nick’s grin spread into the kind of smile I knew left a trail of women in its wake. “You do now.”

I've got so many from road trips to childbirth. But my favorite friendship memory is when my best & I were in HS & leaving a party on a cold night, we ran through a lawn to get to the car & jumped in, cranked heat & left. 2 min later we smell dog poo. I'm gagging, were both laughing. She pulls over, at gas station & uses window washer to clean my shoe of poo while I'm still gaggin and were both laughing so hard we can't breath

I have so many with old childhood friends to friennds of now, I guess one of my favorite one was my Sr year in high school. I was at the JVS taking data/accounting I made so many new friends especially all the kids in my data/accounting class, maybe cause we hardly seperated during our JR year at the school, we hadnt really separated our SR year much except for some of us working. Anyways I had this girl who had been bullying me from my freshman year at my homeschool one day I had ran into this bully at the JVS, she was running off at the mouth which I usually ran from her but I had had enough my bestie was standing there with me, the bully had called me a bitch I just starting laughing & said you are funny I'm the bitch damn takes a bitch to know a bitch doesn't it. When I turned around to walk away had tears in my eyes their was 8 girls with our teacher Miss P standing behind me with smiles on their faces & clapping all the girls from my JVS class ready to do my bully in. I haven't seen many of those girls since graduation

Geez.. My BFF and I have so many memories since we first met in high school.. 15 years ago!
We always liked to laugh and have fun, even if other people thought of it as "stupid" fun. We had this history teacher in 9th grade and his last name was Crum. For whatever reason we liked the name, and would say it while waiting at the door for the bell to ring, and the teacher would just say, "Would you stop that". He was never one to show frustration, he always had one even tone (which made the class so boring, which made it that much harder to learn history and to make history fun to learn). So anyway, we began calling ourselves Bethany Crum and Aja Crum, and so on.. (no link to the teacher in anyway, he was very old compared to us, it was just the name that we liked). Until this day, "Crum" is still our nickname for each other.. and anything related to us, such as, kitty crums, baby crums, mommy crums, etc.. It doesn't even sound odd saying it when we are together. LOL
I LOVE MY BFF!!
