Angelina smiled though it was closer to a smirk. “Well, I did tell Damien about my two hot girlfriends. A few of the guys in the band are single you know. And I made sure our backstage passes aren’t with the rest of the riff-raff. Neither one of you can accuse me of not being a good friend.”
“You’re the best!” I exclaimed as I finished my wine and situated myself on the blanket.
“Uh-oh,” Lizzy began in that sultry tone of hers. “Is that tall drink of water coming near us who I think he is? He’s fuckin’ hawt, Angie. You freakin’ scored big time!”
I wore sunglasses but I could still observe the very sexy and drop-dead gorgeous guy coming our way. He didn’t have a chance to get very close since Angelina hopped up, spilling her plastic cup of wine, and ran to him before jumping in his arms. He caught her like she weighed nothing, and held on tight to her practically nude body.
I looked at Lizzy and she looked back at me. “Seriously, a guy that good looking is nothing but trouble with a capital ‘T.’”
“Well, she’s over twenty-one,” I murmured as I sat up and rearranged her overturned cup though the wine had sunk into the grass. “There’s nothing we can do about it other than support her choices.”
Lizzy shook her head. “I’m not worried about Angie—I’m just talking in general. He’s gorgeous but something about him is . . . off.” She shielded her eyes from the sun with her hands before she slipped on a pair of Jackie-O style blacker-than-black Ray-Bans.
“Don’t you think that’s a bit extreme?”
She shrugged nonchalantly. “All the better for me to observe his demeanor.”
Angelina and her beau finally separated before she brought him over, their hands linked together, to where Lizzy and I sat down.
“These are my BFFs—best friends forever to you Frenchies! Meet Sierra—the brunette—and Lizzy is the blonde.”
I looked up and smiled at him holding out my hand for him to shake.
His stirring blue eyes, so light, they almost appeared to be made of ice, with an unusual green center surrounding his pupils, belied little but when he faced me, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. He didn’t like me and no matter how much he tried to hide it, I could see right through his façade.
Instead of shaking my hand, he grabbed me up and I followed his lead before he jerked my arm out of my socket.
“We don’t say ‘nice to meet you’ with hands,” he replied disdainfully.
“Yes, I know,” I merely said in a quiet voice. “I just . . .”
He brushed both my cheeks with his own. “Enchanté. I’m Damien Bissette, the manager for Breathless Eternity. Glad to make your acquaintance.”
I stepped back as soon as the greeting ended and watched his body language as he gently helped Lizzy to her feet and brushed both her cheeks. He had relaxed though he still maintained good posture, and whatever he felt in a negative sense seemed reserved only for me though I’d never met the man in my life.
I didn’t understand where all this hostility was coming from.
Did he see me as competition for Angelina’s affections?
No, that couldn’t be it. I wasn’t sexually attracted to him and he certainly held no interest in me—sexual, friendly, or otherwise.
I couldn’t put my finger on it but it was almost like he despised me. The worst part was I didn’t understand why. What could I have possibly done to bring such strong emotions out in him?

Series: Running on Empty #2
Author: M.R. Field
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 28, 2015
I’ve spent my younger years acting, safe in a world of make-believe. I learnt to transform into roles to hold onto a sense of harmony in my life.
Years later, still in that moment, I am another face. Another mask. I am not me—the forgotten daughter, the quiet friend, the unrequited love.
Until the pretending becomes meaningless.
And my life hardens again.
I’m tired of acting for my friends when my parents ignore me. I’m tired of acting for myself when I want the world to stop being so hard. I’m tired of holding back from the only man I’ve ever loved.
Even though being drawn to him petrifies me above all else.
When I act to him, he sees right through me.
Each and every time.
She has haunted my dreams for years. The girl I teased to watch her blush. The girl I watched in quiet agony. The girl I had a chance with, one I ruined when I pushed her away.
Now, after all these years, she’s returning to work for me. A ruse to make her mine.
I will show her that she deserves to be cherished, and loved. I’ll bring back that goddess who took my breath away when I was twenty.
You only live once. Side by side, I only want this final lifetime spent with her.
“Your eggs!” Nonna suddenly yells at Trice, startling us as we sit at the table as she points to her. I pass Hazel the Corn Flakes as I reach out for the toast that Mamma has prepared. I stare at Nonna, confused, wondering if one of us was meant to go to the chicken coup to grab some eggs this morning.
“Nonna, we’ve been here before. We have plenty of time,” Trice pleads, her voice gently trying to placate her. “You really should stop watching Dr Phil.”
“It’ll be too late!” She sighs, holding her hand to her chest. “They will be gone soon.” She looks over to Hazel, then her eyes barrel into mine. “You need to hurry up too.”
“Nonna, have you got Grappa in your coffee this morning?” I laugh, trying to knock the worried look from her face.
Mamma brings over the percolator and holds it up for us. I nod and lift my cup while shifting my eyes to Nonna then back to her. She chuckles as she finishes pouring.
“Trice, you do have plenty of time. You know Nonna is just impatient.”
I poke my tongue into my cheek for a moment and then I sip my coffee while wondering if Nonna is starting to lose it.
Trice sees my confusion and waves her hand at me. “It’s nothing to worry about. Nonna saw an episode on Dr Phil about fertility and apparently by my age, my eggs will start to shrivel up. She just wants to be a bisnonna.”
I laugh as Alex’s face pales, causing Trice to laugh—loud. “It’s okay, babe. We’re fine, remember?” she teases, rubbing his arm. He relaxes and shakes his head. I chuckle as his eyes flick over to me and he mouths arsehole.
Mamma moves behind me to Hazel and offers her some coffee. Dr Phil has a lot to answer for when it came to my Nonna.

"Hey, how are my girls doing?" He sounded happy
"Someone's here, I'm in the closet with my gun like you told me to do. I heard a scream! What do I do?" I rambled nervously.
"Calm down Kyler... I am calling the Police in Arco. I know your father taught you to shoot. So you go downstairs and if you think you need to shoot, then intruder then that is what you do." He sounds a bit nervous.
"Okay, I got it." I say then hang up the phone.

âI donât think you will actually shoot me.â He sounds extremely pissed off.

What if Happily Ever Afters were from a place called Elsia? What if they kept that world going and intact? And what if the Fairy Godmother, young and naive, got it wrong?
Welcome to Happily Never Happened, where fairy tales are real, sexier than sin, and sweeter than deliverance. Where Fantasy Ave is a place to see your pleasures satisfied, and the stakes raised – for a price. And then meet the ladies of Fantasy Ave, hidden gems in our world, who come from the world of Elsia, escaping the hell of their Happily Ever Afters, and offered the chance, with one last wish, to find love again.
SIN married her Prince Charming, escaping into the palace and becoming one of the four queens that ruled Elsia. That glass slipper seemed to fit on the right foot – that was until Charming showed her that she meant nothing to him, and even less to others after her story was over. Sin recreated herself, tossing aside her tiara and ballgown, for stilettos and a whip – because she calls the shots now. Never again is she going to be someone’s sub who doesn’t know the meaning of Dominance, and never again is she going to let someone open her heart again.
And she’s right. Someone can’t do it. She needs two: Tobias, her trusted bodyguard, and Zuriah, a wolf of Rose’s pack, to claim her, and show her just how much she’s missing. Show her how much Charming didn’t know about love, and that being broken only means that she can be fixed.
