“You’re familiar with the story of the tortoise and the hare, correct?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Yes…,” I answer in a drawn-out voice, confused about this line of questioning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Do you know what the hare’s mistake was?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“He was cocky. Thought he’d get what he wanted no matter what.” I pinch my lips together, giving him a knowing look.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He laughs, the sound causing my demeanor to momentarily crack. “That’s true. But his problem was sloppy execution.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Sloppy? How so?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“He went out of the gate at full speed. There was no warm-up…” He narrows his eyes. “No buildup. And when he saw he was in the lead, he took a break.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“You don’t think it’s okay to take a break?” I ask, batting my eyelashes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I think it’s lazy. Certain aspects of life require a bit more finesse, a bit more planning, a bit more…effort. And let’s not forget the most important part.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“And what’s that?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“That the tortoise is the one who crossed the finish line first.” He leans toward me, his mouth a whisper away from mine. “And I am very interested in crossing that finish line.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Julie Legg thought she would marry hot country singer Paul Hoffman until every news outlet in the country reported on his numerous infidelities. In the span of a few weeks, she became the center of the latest scandal. As she tries to pick up the pieces of her heart and lick her wounds, she meets Ian Porter, newest sexiest man alive, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor, and perfect guy with a knight in a shining armor syndrome. Loving him should be easy—except Julie is confused by her feelings for her best friend, Ryan Marley, Oscar-worthy actor, who needs her in his spiraling downfall.
Julie: He’s the newest Sexiest Man Alive. I’m the most cheated-on woman in Hollywood, and my life is a PR nightmare. It can’t work.
Ian: All I want is a chance to show her that I am what she needs. I’ve waited for years, and I won’t give up, even if it means being tangled in all her drama. Some women are worth the wait.
This book contains explicit mature content and language and is intended for adults ages 18+. Warning: The perfect guy comes with a pinch of kink, and the heroine could be seen as difficult and lost. Swearing is a must and being a mess is a prerogative — midlife crisis in progress.
I didn’t think I’d be able to write in public but I guess I was wrong!
My youngest is home from preschool today and my grandma is watching him for a little while.
I just knocked out 2000 words in an hour! .
This is Preston’s story and I absolutely love it so far!
"We all have those nights where the only cure is bourbon or tequila. Nothing to be embarrassed about. Not the first time I’ve had someone throw up on me. And it probably won’t be the last.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Unless you have some sick fetish, it should be.” I tilt my head up at him. “You don’t have some weird fetish where you pay people to puke on you, do you? That’s not why you want to do this, is it?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He chuckles as he drops his hold on me. “Certainly not. No sick fetishes here.” He raises his hand. “Scout’s honor.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I pinch my lips. “Why do I get the feeling you were never a Boy Scout?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Very observant of you. I wasn’t.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
