ABOUT THE BOOK
From the USA Today bestselling author of the Bliss series comes a new spin off series featuring your favorite Bliss series characters who are yet to meet their match. This time it is Zach and Danika’s turn.
I’m a gamer by nature and by profession. I’m all about strategy, performance, and coming out on top.
Five months ago I threw caution to the wind, and in the first miscalculated step of my twenty-one-year life, I made a move on my brother’s best friend.
The first mistake we made was keeping our relationship secret. The next was going off half-cocked when a train wreck of epic proportions hit us.
Now our secret is secret no more. As I struggle to deal with all of the swirling emotions, conflicted feelings, and the multitude of burned bridges that I need to mend, the one person who can help me through it all is the same man I need space from.
To fix it I’ll have to pull on my big-girl panties, focus on what I truly want in life, and put everything I have into winning the most important game I’ll ever play.
Life is a game, and it is what you make it.
Coming out unscathed is a whole other matter.
A loud knock at the door interrupts me. My eyes widen, and Abi quirks a brow. Turning to look through the peephole, she spins back around with a huge grin on her face. “Well, well, well . . . I do believe you might have a late night gentleman caller, Ms. Roberts. Should I let him in or make him sweat?”
My heart has palpitations at the thought of Zach coming back to me—for me. What on earth could he want at midnight on a Sunday after leaving me pent up and speechless just twenty minutes ago?
Then the three shots of tequila kick in and feisty, take-no- prisoners Dani comes out to play.
“Leave him out there,” I tell her.
Abi clutches her heart with one hand and wipes away a non-existent tear with the other. “I’m so proud right now,” she says.
“Yeah, yeah . . .” I sweep my hand toward the door. “Don’t you have a job and a penis to get back to?”
“Say penis again. It makes me hot when you go all grown-up on me.”
“P. E. N. I. S,” I spell out, enunciating every letter.
He knocks again, and the look of absolute delight on Abi’s face has me biting my lip to stifle my laughter.
“You’re going to have to put him out of his misery, Dan. I’ll let him in, you can make him work hard for it, and kick him out and make him work for it all over again,” she says with an amused glint in her eye.
“You’re evil, you know that?”
“You wouldn’t have me any other way, and besides, you can’t make it too easy. He did the crime; he needs to do the time.”
“He’s on my shit list right now for making you cry.”
“He didn’t make me cry as such . . .”
“Almost is different from actually doing it.”
He knocks again. “I can hear you, you know.”
