Blurb

Katy Lewis has it all: a sports reporting job she loves, a great roommate, and two brothers who, while nosy, always have her back. But when Conner Roberts, Katy’s unrequited first crush, suddenly shows up—and shows interest—after nine years, she reverts to a sweaty, panicked sixteen-year-old once more.

And if trying to read Conner’s signals isn’t tough enough, Katy’s heart is sending some mixed messages of its own. When a beautiful blonde coworker starts pursuing Katy’s boss, Dylan Sterling—her longtime mentor and friend—she realizes she may have a problem with that. A reunion with Conner is what she’s dreamed of for so long…so why can’t she stop thinking about Dylan?


For the first time ever, Katy must fact-check her heart. Should she go after the guy she thought she always wanted or see if there’s something more with the one who’s been there all along?

What emerged were the beginnings of her debut novel, Promise Me. Now she’s living her dream and writing stories that entice readers to escape and break away from reality. When she’s not writing, you can find her trying to get through the books on her Kindle (more than a thousand at last count) or watching Sherlock or Homeland. She resides in New Jersey with her husband and two children.

Excerpt

 

“You don’t remember, do you?”

“Remember what?” I ask at the same time Mimi does.

His mouth tips up in a teasing smile, and his hazel eyes twinkle with amusement while my mind starts racing, trying to remember exactly what he’s talking about.

Conner leans forward and says, “Come here, I’ll give you a hint.”

Nervous at being this close to him, but very curious, I meet him halfway in the space between our bar stools. Obviously not satisfied with how close I am to him, he leans a little farther. In that handful of seconds, I close my eyes and inhale. I actually freeze the moment in my head and smell him like he’s a fresh bouquet of roses or something. And in that instant of cataloging his scent, it brings to mind the brightness of the sun after a rain shower and how it makes everything more beautiful in the light of day.

            A quick snap of Mimi’s fingers brings me out of my break with sanity. I open my eyes; she rolls hers and then points like a crazy person at the back of Conner’s head, which is poised by my ear. As if sharing a secret between old lovers, he speaks quietly, so only I can hear him.

“Knight in shining armor.”

“Excuse me?”

As he leans back and smiles at me, he says a little louder now so Mimi can hear him, “That’s your hint.”

Conner watches as I search my memories. Many of them are of us as kids goofing around and playing in our neighborhood park, where we initially met. Later memories are of me not knowing what to say and feeling awkward around him; the whole time, Conner was oblivious to how I was developing a whopper of a crush on him.

“I’m disappointed, Shadow,” he says finally. “I consider that moment to be one of my top five to this day.”

The realization hits me then, and I smile shyly as the memory replays in my head. “I remember.”
