Alone in the Artist's Lounge. Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MPreg #PNR #MLM #shifter #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date. I should be getting edits for the story soon.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun was on his way up to meet Ash, and ran into TK (from Bunny Omega on the Run), while exiting the elevator.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead a little bit. Jun meets a few more artists from Adan Records, and learns once again that Ash can't stop talking about him. Now, they're alone in the Artist's Lounge....


Sticking my thumb over my shoulder, I glanced at the now closed door. “They didn’t have to leave.”

Ash sighed before standing. “Naw. They wanted to leave earlier, but I convinced them to stay.”

“In case I didn’t show up?” I only asked based on what the others had said, though I didn’t understand why I mattered so much.

He chewed on the corner of his lip and nodded. “I wasn’t sure if you would. Anyway....” 

**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

He clasped his hands in front of him. “Take a seat, and let me get you something to drink. Do you want coffee, tea, water, beer, wine, soda? I think there might be hot chocolate and some coolers, too.”

While he rustled through the pod cups, I took a seat at the end of the couch. “Just a water is good, thanks.” Any more caffeine, and my leopard cat would jump right out of me, while alcohol would give him complete control over my actions.

“Oh, okay.” He busied himself at the beverage and snack counter while I took in the rest of the room.

Everything was white, the walls, the ceiling, and all the furniture, including two full-body massage chairs. At the far end were two computer stations and a large table for eating or maybe meetings, with a large shelving unit dividing the space. The color in the room came from the framed albums released under Adan Records from their various artists. All in order of release, the newest being Stay from AI.

Ash returned with two glasses of water, and after handing me one, he plopped down on the couch. Right beside me. Maybe two inches between us when there were several feet of unoccupied space on the other side of him. I didn’t mind. I wasn’t repulsed by him or his sweet vanilla and brown sugar scent, but I worried I didn’t smell the freshest. Though I gather he didn’t mind since he stayed by my side. And at some point he had changed since I’d seen him in the morning, no longer in the button-down silver shirt and black leather pants. Instead, he wore sweat pants and an oversized hoodie. With only the two of us in the room, I actually felt overdressed.

Encounter with a Global Pop Superstar! Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #PNR #MLM #shifter #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date. I should be getting edits for the story soon.

**Quick note: If any of my fellow authors need a blog spot for a new release, cover reveal, or anything else book related, just email me. I'd be happy to host you here.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash got the courage to ask Jun to come with him to get a thank you beverage, but Jun had to work. Jun agreed to go after he closed the store though.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead quite a bit again. Jun has finished his shift, and although he went back and forth as to whether he was going to meet Ash after, he is now on his way there. He already had an interesting encounter with the guy at the front desk, but he made it to the elevator and is about to have another interesting encounter. (*Hint: I'm bringing back a main character from the first book in the series.)


As soon as I stepped out of the elevator, I came face-to-face with TK. The TK. Global pop superstar. With perfect tan skin, dyed purple hair, and lose clothing he made look fashionable rather than frumpy. The ultimate alpha.

I jumped back, sure he would object to me being there. To even lay my eyes on him.

“Oh, hi.” He reached for my ID card. “So you’re Jun.”

**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

I tilted my head. “What do you mean?” What had he heard about me? And from whom? Had I done something wrong?

He laughed, causing wrinkles to form in the corners of his eyes. “Ash. He hasn’t stopped talking about you today.”

“Really?” Why? He’d just released his debut album. Why was he even thinking about me?

“Yep.” He stuck out his hand. “I’m TK by the way. It’s good to meet you, put a face to the name.”

“I know who you are.” I wiped my palm across my pants before shaking his hand. “And um, thank you. It’s good to meet you, too.”

“I’ve got to get home to my family, but I’m sure I’ll see you again. Ash is in the artist’s lounge.” He pointed down the hall. “Last door on the right hand side.”

I nodded while my leopard cat gloated. “Thank you so much. Have a good night.”

“You, too.” He patted my shoulder as he passed me.

The stakes have never been higher! Check out RISE BY MOONLIGHT, the explosive conclusion to @NancyGideon's BY MOONLIGHT series #romance #PNR #newrelease


RISE BY MOONLIGHT

By Moonlight Series

by Nancy Gideon

Max and Charlotte return for the explosive conclusion of the “By Moonlight” series . . . 

and the stakes have never been higher!

He’s the Promised One

A Mobster’s attack dog turned legitimate business powerhouse, Max Savoie is the reluctant leader of New Orleans’ shapeshifter clan. They’ve kept to anonymous shadows, working and living unnoticed by the human world until their new Shifter King’s past draws dangerous outsiders who threaten all.

She’s the Protector

A fiercely determined NOPD detective, Charlotte Caissie has sworn to defend her beloved city and her unborn child from both criminals and otherworldly factions at war. While standing boldly at the side of her mate/husband, secrets from the past return to shake the foundation of her beliefs.

They have a Problem

Walking a marital tight rope between opposite worlds, Max and Cee Cee’s paths place truth and trust at odds when outside threats force enemies to become allies. The time to take a stand for their family and their future is at hand. Time to rise together for the survival of all they love!


“Every delicious word on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.” 

– NYT bestselling author, Darynda Jones


Available from:

AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | KOBO


FIND ON GOODREADS




Genevieve Savorie couldn’t be underestimated. She had resources and money and motivation. And she had what they did not. Time. Time to plot and plan and discover their vulnerabilities. Charlotte was his strength, but also his weakness, his Queen to be protected at all costs if the match of skill and strategy was to be won. In allowing her to return to the streets, he was exposing his flank as well as his heart.  

But they didn’t know his mate. And that would be their downfall. 

That, and being foolish enough to touch what was his. 

“Tomorrow,” he began, voice soft and threaded dangerously with steel, “we go back to work and find out who betrayed our trust. I put Silas on our mysterious Mr. Maitlin from Chicago. Perhaps we’ll get lucky and intercept him and the information he stole.” Genetic information on his wife and unborn child. “And perhaps discover who his accomplice is here in New Orleans.” 

Cee Cee’s jaw turned concrete. “Brady. We both know it.” 

“Yes, we do.” Quietly, determinedly said. 

“Someone put our child in danger, Max. We’ll find out who. And we’ll make them very, very sorry.”

The signing is over. What happens next? Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MPreg #PNR #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

**Quick note: If any of my fellow authors need a blog spot for a new release, cover reveal, or anything else book related, just email me. I'd be happy to host you here.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash was in the middle of his signing when he picked up Jun's scent of pine and allspice. It definitely caught him off guard and made it hard for him to concentrate during the event.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead quite a bit to after the signing is over and things are winding down. This is still in Ash's point of view.


Staff from Adan Records and KMM worked quickly to direct the fans out and clean up while I answered questions from Tony about how it went.

Though Jun wasn’t that close now that the fans had left, I could still see him watching me as he piled chairs and took down signs. Tony called him over right before we left for the company.

“Thank you for all of your help today.” He handed Jun a small, white envelope then shook his hand. “Even though nothing happened, you don’t know how important you were to us.”

“Oh.” He glanced at me then Tony. “Thank you. It wasn’t a problem.”


**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

“Yeah, thank you.” I clasped my hands behind my back, feeling the need to say something. “Why don’t you come back with us for a coffee or a drink, or something?” No, not that. I got nervous for a moment, and my leopard cat took over. Bad kitty!

“Oh, um.” He stuck his thumb over his shoulder. “I’d love to, but I have to get back to work. I’m here until the store closes at nine.”

“I should still be around then.” I chewed on my bottom lip, confused by my sudden confidence. “That is, if you want to. You know, just as a thank you for helping the company.”

“Um, maybe.” He took off his hat and ran his fingers through his dark locks, making my heart weak. “I don’t have any plans, so sure.”

“We’ll let security know you’re coming,” Tony said before ushering me down the hall toward the private passage to the record label’s building. Probably a good thing too, before I embarrassed myself.

The album signing starts. Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #8Sunday #romance #MLM #MPreg #PNR #shifter #omegaverse


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

**Quick note: If any of my fellow authors need a blog spot for a new release, cover reveal, or anything else book related, just email me. I'd be happy to host you here.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun found out that he would be Ash's personal guard. He also noticed that his leopard cat was actual active around Ash, when it usually wasn't. 

In this weekend's snippet, I'm switching back to Ash's point of view, and giving you an idea of how the signing is going for him.


Why did I think that having Jun so close to me during the event would be a good idea? I had far more confidence when I’d first suggested the idea to the Event Coordinator, Tony, until I came face-to-face with Jun again. Last night I’d been too shocked by the sight of him that I hadn’t really noticed how he’d changed over the years. His jaw had widened. Actually, his whole body was wider, more muscular. My brother used to call him a beanpole, saying he’d never be a good alpha, but Nex couldn’t say that now. And then there were Jun’s tattoos. Guitars, music notes, and various song lyrics—some familiar, and others not—down his arms, and the tips of what might be flames, appearing just above his shirt collar. While I’d always found him attractive, these changes made my heart race. I’d recovered my composure when I left to have my makeup and hair done for the signing, but that was short-lived.

**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

The screening of the music video followed by the Q and A had gone well. All my fans, who had voted on the fandom name bots, respectfully sat in their seats and mostly asked about the music video, the album, and my inspiration for each song rather than more personal questions. Though someone did ask if I was seeing anyone. I’m sure they all knew by the lack of a mark and mixed scent that I hadn’t been claimed yet. Something I was nowhere near ready for. Yet, that’s the point at which I smelled him, a heady combination of pine and allspice. A scent that appealed to me even back in high school when I didn’t have the courage to do anything more than stare at Jun as he passed by me in the hall. Why had his scent suddenly become stronger at the question? Did he know it made me uncomfortable?

A NEW level of Danger for Jacqui the Cat Shifter~ Check out WILD by @AlexisSDuran #NewRelease #RomanticSuspense #Mystery #MLM #PNR

WILD

Jacqui the Cat Mysteries #4

by Alexis Duran

Cat Shifter Jacqui Corleone has finally met his fated mate, but unlike in a romance novel, reality has other plans. For one thing, Wyatt doesn't know Jacqui is a shifter. For another thing, the dog men are back, and along with their slobber and their bad breath they bring a new level of danger to Jacqui's life, and to Wyatt's. When Jacqui meets other cat shifters for the first time, he's tantalized by a glimpse into their strange new world, but cats aren't much nicer than dogs, and soon Jacqui must choose if he's going to run again, or stand and fight against an enemy more powerful than he ever imagined.

Jacqui raced home as if his tail were on fire.

Not so bad. Had to happen.

Left my phone, my clothes, everything behind. How will I explain it?

Oh.

Jacqui tore up his street, cut through the gap between two buildings, and scrambled up the madrone tree behind his apartment. He was in the habit of leaving his bedroom window open, just in case, and now, the in case had occurred.

He squeezed in, jumped on the bed, shook himself. 

What's that smell?

Gotta be fast. Wyatt's gonna call or come over. He's wondering where we are right now. He'll see the phone on the kitchen counter. Shit, he'll come over, make sure I'm alive.

Wait. Something's off.

No time. Shift. Now.

Jacqui was in such a rush he shifted standing on the bed. The panicky change swept over and through him so fast he toppled forward as four feet morphed into two. Most of his body landed on the mattress before momentum carried him off the side, tangled in the fluffy down comforter he loved so much.

He kicked away the blanket and jumped to his feet. How was he going to explain his disappearance this time? In a flash of genius, he grabbed his running clothes out of the closet and dressed. No time for undies or socks. His running shoes were in the downstairs closet.

He dashed down the narrow spiral staircase from his loft to the living area. It was a small studio with an open floor plan, which made it hard to miss anything out of place.

Like that smell.

Jacqui forced himself to stop moving and pay attention. Once he did, his scalp prickled and his nostrils flared. He sniffed and detected the sharp aroma of a stranger.

A cat!

It's just a cat.

Just a cat?

That stray. He snuck in here last night and peed on our stuff!

No, human, focus. He's still here.

Jacqui focused. Took a deeper breath. Cat was correct.

As usual.

The window. That stupid ruffian had discovered the open window and helped himself. Jacqui's territory, his inner sanctum, violated by a mangy stray.

What did I tell you about establishing a defensive perimeter?

Dogs can't climb trees. How was I to know I’d have to worry about cats?

He padded silently to his worktable in the middle of the room and turned a slow circle. He didn't see any damage, or the cat. Gone already? But, no. The smell was too intense, even for a stinky tom.

"Here, Kitty, Kitty", he said without much enthusiasm. "Where are you hiding?"

A rustling came from the bathroom and before Jacqui's disbelieving eyes, the doorknob began to turn.

Every muscle tightened, and the air rippled slightly as his body prepared to shift once again. To flee or fight as required. He forced himself to keep his shape, and seized up a pair of scissors from the workbench.

The bathroom door opened and a nude man stepped out.

A nude, grinning man. "Hello," he said. "Hope you don't mind that I used your shower."

Prepared only to snarl, Jacqui managed to choke out, "Mind? Of course I mind. Who the hell are you?"

"Reggie. We met last night." The grin became stiff and the man's nervousness seeped through his initial bravado. Man-boy. Young. Early twenties. Lanky but muscular. Big, almost buggy brown eyes. A close-cut, amateurish hair cut that might have been self-inflicted with garden shears. Toothy smile. Cute as all get out. Rough boy manner. Rough like that mangy stray—

Cat!

Jacqui couldn't breathe. Couldn't think. Couldn't stop clutching the scissors like a mad man.

"You okay, dude?" the man asked.

Cat man. Cat shifter. One of his people. Jacqui's people. Here in the flesh. All the flesh.

Nude cat shifter man in my place!

Job Title: AI's Personal Guard ~ Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #8Sunday #romance #MLM #MPreg #PNR #omegaverse


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun got to meet AI, who he found out was also Ash Reyes, who he remembered from high school. They aren't the same age, but Ash has an older brother who is the same age as Jun.

In this weekend's snippet, Jun finds out exactly what his security duties will entail.


“Okay.” Aviator glasses guy clapped his hands. “Now that you two are reacquainted, it’s time to get ready. Jun, you’re going to be AI’s personal guard.”

Ash’s cheeks flushed again before he looked away. Maybe I was supposed to refer to him as AI, but he didn’t look much different from the kid I remembered seeing in the halls of our high school. “Okay, but are you sure I’m qualified for that?” I mean, I didn’t mind, but I didn’t want Ash to get hurt because of me.

“You don’t really need any qualifications.” The guy wrinkled his forehead. 

**That's ten, but I've included the rest of the scene so you can find out that some of you guessed correctly last weekend.**

“If you see someone getting rowdy, and think they might be a threat, you get AI out of there. That’s it. Just watch the crowd. Besides, when AI learned you’d be helping us today, he insisted you fill the role.”

I automatically glanced at Ash, whose cheeks had turned even redder than before. Kathie had been told it was the staff I’d helped last night, so maybe this was info for me only. “Oh, okay then.” If he made the request, I wouldn’t argue. Besides, my leopard cat seemed agreeable to the role, more confident than I felt. In fact, that part of me became more active around Ash. Even last night. Though I’d brushed it off as being on edge due to a suspicious customer.

Except for the urge to go for the occasional evening prowl, this was really the most I’d been in tune with my leopard cat since high school. But I couldn’t let it take control. This was a serious job, and the repercussions from fucking up would follow me for the rest of my life. I was Ash’s personal guard, and I would be by his side until I was granted leave.

Jun
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

Ash
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album.

Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

Reunited at last! Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MPreg #MLM #PNR #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun got up early to come into the store to help Kathie set up before AI's signing. But when he arrived, he learned that he would be security for the signing instead of helping in the store.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead a bit to where Jun is learning what he'll be doing. He's already signed an NDA and thinks he's just doing crowd control, but the event coordinator has something else in mind. The first line belong to the event coordinator.


“Follow me.” He put his glasses back down and headed out the back entrance, meeting with a few others in a private corridor I’d never been privy to.

I trailed behind, confused as to why they were being so secretive about everything. Shouldn’t I know what I was doing ahead of time? We reached the event room where I greeted the two women whom I’d helped last night, along with an older, tall, and very buff man, and then a kid. Well, he wasn’t exactly a kid, but I couldn’t tell his age because of the face mask he wore. One with silver jewels in the shape of a diamond.

Wait!

“Hey, you were at KMM last night looking for AI’s album.” He wasn’t looking for his sister, but spying to ensure we didn’t have the albums out early.

**That's ten, but I've included a little more so you can read more of Jun's realization.**

He slowly nodded, taking off his face mask. And that’s when realization hit.

“Wait, you’re AI. But you’re also....” My mouth couldn’t keep up with my brain. “We went to the same high school.” It was the makeup and hairstyle in the promotional posters that had thrown me off, why he looked familiar, but I couldn’t place him.

His cheeks reddened as he stood up. “Yeah, I wasn’t sure you’d even remember me.” He held out his hand. “Name’s Ash Reyes, but today I’m AI.”

**Okay, so they're finally reunited, but Jun still doesn't know exactly what he'll be doing. I'll share that part next weekend.**


HIS OMEGA ON STAGE
Shifter Towers book four

Jun
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

Ash
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

On Stage
But with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they just let each other slip away, believing what they have just isn’t enough?.

Another new task for Jun. Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MLM #PNR #MPreg #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which is now contracted to Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash had reverted to his teenage self after seeing his high school crush at the record store, while in disguise. Even seven years later, he still has a hard time getting the courage to talk to Jun. This weekend, I'm skipping ahead to the day of AI's (Ash's) debut release and signing. We're back in Jun's point of view, and he has to go into work early, because things aren't going as planned. The first line is Kathie (the owner of the record store) speaking.


“My dad is fine. He should be released from the hospital tomorrow. But most of AI’s security team got food poisoning overnight.”

“Oh, that’s harsh.” I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. “So, does that mean the signing is cancelled?”

“No.” She grabbed something from one of the boxes then shoved it at me. “There’s been a change of plans though.”

**That's nine, but I've included a little more so you can find out what task Jun has been assigned.**

“What do you mean?” I glanced at what she’d handed me, a black shirt and ball cap that both read ADAN Records Security in gold lettering. “What’s this for?”

“You’re going to be part of AI’s security team for today.” She patted my shoulder. “The ladies you worked with last night told the event coordinator you’d be perfect.”

“What? No.” This was a crazy idea. I sold albums and music merch, but I didn’t guard those who made the music.

“C’mon. With that t-shirt, everyone will be able to see your build and all your tattoos.” She tapped my arm. “You’ll be intimidating to most of his fans without having to do or say anything.”

“Yeah, but it’s the others I worry about.” I didn’t want to be responsible for a pop star getting injured or worse because I wasn’t qualified to do the job.

The eve before his debut album releases. Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #8Sunday #romance #PNR #MPreg #MLM #omegaverse


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I'm now sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. Exciting news! I just got a contract offer for the story!

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun was called back into the store to deal with a suspicious customer while Felix was busy. And he thought the person's eyes seemed familiar, but couldn't place them. This weekend, I'm skipping to the next chapter to answer some of your questions. This is in Ash's point of view.


It was him. It was really him. I let out a squeal then rolled my eyes at myself, thankful no one was in the elevator with me. I was acting like I did in high school when I saw my crush. Instead, I was seven years older, and still freaking out over him on the eve before one of the most important days of my life.

When the doors opened, I exited the elevator and headed to the artists’ lounge, unable to stop the skip in my step. Why was I more excited about seeing him than my album about to drop? It’s not as if he knew who I was. I’d made sure of that, wearing my hat and mask in the record store. I hadn’t wanted to be recognized by my fans. 

**That's ten, but I've included a little more so you can get to know Ash (AI) a little more**

Yet, he was one person I would love to reveal my identity to, my true self. Not my stage name. Though I doubted he’d know me anyway. In high school, I’d stood in awe, like a statue, as he passed me in the halls, and got excited if he even looked in my general direction. Never got up the courage to say a word to him though. Not even once. Had I not been in disguise, I still would have been just some younger omega who shopped in the store he worked.

In the lounge, I laid across the long, white leather couch, disappointed in how I’d reacted seeing Jun again. First, I’d panicked when I realized who was talking to me. Then I’d made up some story about a sister I didn’t have. A brother, yes. One the same age as Jun. One who knew I’d had a crush on the alpha loner, and told me to stay away from him.
