“Who are you meeting tonight?” he asks.
“Let’s just forget this whole thing happened.”
“Let’s not. I’m invested.”
“Then uninvest yourself.”
He laces his fingers together and places them in the middle of the table. He’s getting comfortable.
There’s no way out of this. The truth will come to light sooner than later. Besides, he’s obviously committed to getting the entire story and I really don’t want to be hounded by it for weeks.
He’ll never let it go.
But there’s a chance that he will let it go if I come clean now. Just admit the truth. Maybe he’ll understand. Hell, maybe he’ll think it’s a solid plan and help me think my way through it.
I put my purse back against the wall and face him. Shoulders back. Chin lifted. I shove a strand of hair behind my ear and prepare myself to admit to Moss Freaking Carmichael that I’m desperate enough to do this.
“It seems as though Maddox knows what’s happening here. Banks knows. My mother knows. Everyone is in the loop but me. And I’d really like to be clued in too,” he says, his tone curious.
I take a deep breath.
“Fine,” I say, resolved to get the conversation over with. “You want to know what’s going on? I’ll tell you.”
The pause is so exaggerated, so produced that even I wait for something bold to happen. Then I remember I’m the storyteller. Damn.
I peer into his eyes.
“Moss, I need a fake boyfriend.”
About the Book:
WANTED: A SITUATION-SHIP
I’m a single female who’s tired of relationships ruining my life. However, there are times when a date would be helpful. If you’re a single man, preferably mid-twenties to late-thirties, and are in a similar situation, we might be a match.
Candidate must be handsome, charming, and willing to pretend to have feelings for me (on a sliding scale, as the event requires). Ability to discuss a wide variety of topics is a plus. Must have your own transportation and a (legal) job.
This will be a symbiotic agreement. In exchange for your time, I will give you mine. Need someone to flirt with you at a football party? Go, team! Want a woman to make you look good in front of your boss? Let me find my heels. Would you love for someone to be obsessed with you in front of your ex? I’m applying my red lipstick now.
If interested, please email me. Time is of the essence.
From USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestselling author comes a “fun and flirty!” fake dating situation between two coworkers that quickly straddles the line between friends and lovers.
