I want to give a shout out to the amazing Angelica Dawson for keeping this group going each week.
I’m working on the 4th book in my Love Projects Series. I’ve been looking forward to writing this one for a long time. The hero has been mentioned in every Evernight book I’ve written. I’ve got a HUGE crush on this guy. HUGE! ❤
So, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the scenes he’s been in before I start teasing you from the WIP.
In this scene, Jake is reeling from Keller’s match-making. Skills Keller refuses to acknowledge. Jake’s buddy Simon is having a little too much fun with this news. The three of them are in Keller’s office.
“What did I do?” Keller threw his hands in the air, but the smirk on his face gave him away.
“Shit, I’m sorry, Jake.” Simon turned his attention back to Keller. “Who did you select for our boy here?”
“You stay out of this. I thought we stood together on standing alone.” Jake said.
“Sorry, I got caught in the action. Now, don’t leave me hangin’. Who is it?”
“Gees, it’s Lydia, okay? And you know what?” Jake turned his attention to Keller and pointed to Simon. “Do me a favor. Pick on him next.”
“I keep telling you, I have no idea what you’re talking about.” Keller shook his head.
“Quiet, little Lydia?” Simon said.
Keller stepped in front of Jake, stopping him from advancing on Simon. Simon scurried out of his chair, smartly putting good distance between him and the caged beast Jake had no desire to contain.
“I’ve got towels set out for you.” Keller pointed to the bathroom. “Go on, take a cold shower and calm yourself. I’ll have Anne order you two some lunch.”
“Thanks, Keller, I want to strangle you, but thanks.”
“Hey, don’t mention it. Just remember to invite me to the collaring ceremony.”
Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.
The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.
