Excerpt:
The spicy smell of the best Mexican restaurant in the state tickled her senses awake. She opened one eye. Mer was standing by the bed, grinning and waving a hand over a steaming plate to send the aromas her way.
"Like what you smell? Come and get it." Her friend turned on her heel and headed back to the dining nook where the take out containers were lined up, already half empty. Al rubbed her eyes and her stomach growled loudly. There were some advantages to having an impromptu roommate.
Allison slipped her fingers through her hair in an effort to smooth it. "Looks and smells amazing. How long did I sleep?" She glanced at the clock on the stove in some surprise.
It was almost eight o'clock.
Eyes gleaming with a rather manic light, Mer waved her down. "Sit, sit. Eat, while I tell you about the most scrumptious man ever to grace our fair city."
Allison only half listened. There was always someone in Mer's sights. She had dated most of the eligible men in town, some of them more than once. New man in town, new meat.
The rice and beans settled in a heavy ball in her stomach, and Allison tried to push away the bitter taste of disappointment Mer's words caused. It was Sean, of course. They worked together. She had met him when he went into the precinct office. Of course. All their adult lives, Mer had been the one to get the men that interested Allison. While no relationship lasted long, no man could turn away what she offered. Allison wasn't interested in her cast-offs, so when Mer started being interested, she stopped. It wasn't worth it.
Mer didn't seem to notice Allison had gone quiet. Or, rather than shoveling the delicious food down her throat, as she had been, she now pushed it around her plate with a fork.
She sighed and swallowed the unexpected tears building in her throat. Too bad. She had liked Sean Barnett. He was great with animals, and in her experience that usually meant he was a good guy. He was one she would have enjoyed getting to know. Ah, well, another prospect bites the dust.
