Better Off Away (BOOK 2)(Wattys2016)
Sequel to Better Off Alone
Macey Littlefield has only ever wanted to get away. And now, she finally has the chance. But it will mean leaving behind her last summer with her friends and stepping into a commitment even bigger than she realizes.
She meets new people and realizes that the publishing world and the City aren't for everyone. Maybe not even her.
"What do you want?" I ask, cautious.
He's still smirking. "Are you... jealous?"
The laughter peals from within me, unable to remain kept in. "Jealous!? Please! I am not even the slightest of attracted to you."
Mr. Fancy British Man smirks again and leans in very close to me. I feel my eyes involuntarily take in his handsome features: the sun kissed skin, the line of stubble, the smirking lips, the pair of dimples, the light brown hair, and finally, the hazel eyes. It would be ten times easier to resist him if he was physically unattractive.
"Still not attracted to me?" He growls sexily, his breath fresh and warm on my face.
I stare him back. "Not. At. All."
