“He’s coming out. His driver just had the car come around. Are you ready?”

There was a grumble on the other end. “Ready?! I thought you said, you would think of something else?! We’ve been here two hours and you can't come up with a better plan than this?!”

I rolled my eyes hearing Jason complain. What I was about to do was plan B which I had made in case I couldn't think of a plan A. “Look I paid you, okay? Just get into place and do what you got paid for please. If he leaves and I don't get paid, then I'll gladly let Gerald know –”

“Fine!” Jason quickly cut me off. “But I won't like it. Just try not to die, Elle.”

He hung up and I placed the phone back into my pocket. I, myself, hoped I wouldn't die too, with what was about to happen. Running across to where I knew the car would be heading, I stood on the sidewalk as the cars passed by and pulled my phone out again. Unlocking the phone, I took a deep breath and sent a small prayer up to God.

I don't know when Christoff got into the car, I only saw the white Mulsanne drive off and make a left towards me in order to turn onto the main road of Brickell Avenue. With the other pedestrians moving so quickly behind me, my heart skipped a beat as I watched in slow motion as the car approached.

Wondering where Jason was, panic shot its way through my veins and I glanced down at my phone to text Jason again, when suddenly I felt a firm hand on my back, followed by a hard shove forward.

He turns his head to the side and he’s looking at me so deeply, I’m trying to hide my true feelings from him.  “You think friends with benefits would be different? How?”
I shrug my shoulders.  “Well, because you’d know I’m emotionally messed up and that what we have could fizzle out, but at least we’d still be friends because we’d both know we are in it to… you know, help each other out.”
Austin laughs, and I’ve never been more grateful to hear it, but he sombers quickly and looks at me skeptically.  “I’ve never known you to be a friend with benefits type of woman.”
My heart is hammering in my chest.  “Well, you and I both know you’ve never been the settling down type anyway. Who better to try out the friends with benefits thing with than you?”
We’re still holding hands, and his thumb rubs over my palm in a slow, circular motion. We both watch our hands and when he looks up, I meet his gaze, holding my breath.
Finally, he mutters softly, “If that’s the only way I can have you, that’s fine.”

Brodie looked down at the kitten as it started licking his thumb, its rough tongue rasping over his skin.
“What’s its name?” Brodie managed to keep his voice even. His pull to this woman was something else. He came on this job to make a few extra bucks before his big fight on Saturday, and hopefully, it was one of his last construction gigs. Boxing was his life, and working all day interfered with his training regimen.
It also meant he didn’t really have time for a distraction like Tabitha, but he was finding her damn near impossible to resist.
“Max, or more likely, Fur-Ball of Destruction.” She cooed a little and rubbed a finger on the kitten’s ear. “My favorite sweater is now the lining of his bed,” she pointed into the box and he saw a soft, white material there, laid in like a nest for the little guy to sleep in. “I’ve only had him two days, and it seems like he’s already destroyed half of my apartment.”
He chuckled at that, “Just like a bad boy, eh?” He nuzzled the kitten and gave her a wink that made the blush rise up the creamy skin of her chest again. This time it continued over her neck and into her cheeks. He could get used to seeing that.

review: Doubt by Ane-Rae Vasquez

Doubt by Anne-Rae Vasquez

like 2.5 meh stars....

I got this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I first have to say I am sorry for how long it took me to read these books. I went on a hiatus not reading any books. I finally got my groove back, and with this stay at home order I finally get to put a dent on my "for review" books.

This book was not really in my wheel house. It was a young adult book which I like, but it wasn't as supernatural as I hoped. This book follows a guy named Harry. His father was very smart and had a great job. He went missing, and then found dead. Harry grew up without a father. He graduated high school early and had his PHD before he was 22. He turned down some really good jobs to work as an IT manager for a nice company. He made his on video game, and still has some of the rights. This company that he works for he gets to hire his own team to go on these missions. He hired 5 people who all play his video game and are very good at it.
    This book starts to get weird after it introduces all the people. One girl named Crystal we will find who likes Harry more than a boss, but is conflicted because she thinks she feels something special with her other co-worker that she cant put her finger on it. Then a natural earthquake hits the world, and everyone is thinking one of the game seekers has their hand in why it happened. People all over world are saying they saw a girl and having weird dreams when this earthquake happen. There are a lot of people who's loved ones went missing and they are all trying to figure it out. there are a lot of twists in this book, and some of the book has me left with a bunch of questions. Which will most likely be answered in book 2. a lot of the supernatural stuff does not happen to half of the book if over. So, for me I really had to push myself to finish the book.
