#ChickLitMay ~ What's On Page 45 ~ #TeaserTuesday
Today's topic is What's on Page 45 ... so I'm going to dig into my next Harlequin Superromance, releasing in the fall, to find some juicy information. Emmett (our hero) and Jaime (our heroine) have a...messy past and now they have to figure out how to get along in the present. Here we go, from page 45 of First Love, Again:
Emmett grabbed the keys to his truck and stopped short. Jaime sat in a red golf cart in the driveway. "Hi," he said and tossed the keys onto the front seat. He walked to the golf cart. "The trustees didn't call, I figured they won the argument."
"Not yet." She mumbled something else that sounded suspiciously like not ever and then smiled brightly at him. "I'm here to take you up on the offer of an estimate. We've already had one, but after Luther Taylor walked out on the job the trustees want to make sure there are no more surprises."
"And if I have plans?" He raised an eyebrow at her.
"You don't." She waited a long moment and finally said, "Are you coming or do I also have to look for another estimate?"
"I haven't been asked onto the project yet."
"I just did." She blew out a breath that made the curls at her forehead dance. Emmett bit back a smile. She was still so easy to rile up.
"No, you said you were here to take me up on my offer. But you didn't actually ask me to give an estimate, and as part of my offer I did say the trustees should call if they wanted my help."
"I'm as close as you're getting to a trustee today so either get in or get out of my way."
