The Trouble With Friends
Nearly thirty, over-endowed with curves, and under-endowed with boyfriends, you could say that my life is not going to plan. Still hopelessly in love with my childhood friend and neighbor who only sees me as his best pal, it’s finally sinking in that if I want a happily ever after I’m going to have to look further afield.
Which means putting my feelings for Jack behind me, no matter how much it hurts.
I love Gill. Who wouldn’t? She’s cute, kind, funny and my side-kick since school. She’s suffered with me through my failed marriage and has become a second mom to my six-year-old daughter, so I like to make sure she’s okay. Only, life’s just started to get crazy.
I’m pretty darn good at getting my point across in business, but how am I supposed to deal with Gill throwing herself away on the nerdy bank manager? I’m worried that I’ll lose her friendship if I tell her what I know, and worried that she’ll get hurt if I don’t. Then there’s this other worry. What if I’m just jealous? And what the heck does that mean?
The Trouble With Exes
I’ve come home to Sycamore Springs, which is something I thought I’d never do. Right now, with my big fat divorce pending, the soul-destroying taste of failure in my mouth, no job, little money and two kids to support, there’s no choice. Nothing to panic about. And why am I compelled to include in my drama, this unwanted attraction to a man several years younger than me? Hot or not, it just isn’t going to happen.
My last two relationships were complete disasters. Meeting Eve again, the sister-in-law of the woman I jilted at the altar - and therefore completely out of bounds - and realizing there might be something between us, something I’ve never felt before, makes me think cupid might be having a whole lot of fun at my expense.
When the past knocks on your door, it might pay to let it in.
The Trouble With Love
Friends to lovers?
Or merely convenient?
Sycamore Springs might be a great place to live for most people. For me, it’s a nightmare. My life revolves around my job and taking care of my sick mom. There’s little time for day-dreaming, and if I did happen to manage a few minutes, sexy Sam’s sure to infiltrate. He’s great, but I won’t be distracted from my responsibilities even if he pushes buttons that are supposed to be out of commission.
Surrounded by happy people creates a yearning hard to ignore. The trouble is, it seems to be a couples thing, and I am not a couple. Not yet. There’s a connection between the hairdresser and me, who won’t take me seriously. That’s problem number two. Delilah’s as independent as she is beautiful and completely uninterested in a real estate agent who turns into a fool around her.
How do you break down barriers you can’t see?
