Saturday Sample: Her Kind of Man

Welcome to Saturday Sample. My excerpt today is from Her Kind of Man which was a featured read on the eReader Cafe on Thanksgiving Day. The book is on sale for .99. In this excerpt my hero has a hard time justifying his decision to invite Kara Cochrane to dinner. Bobby is my hero's brother, and the reason he's upset is because Kara is trying to make her ex-fiance jealous.

"Are you out of your mind?"

Ross winced at his brother's reaction. He pushed his plate away and drained his coffee cup. "Great breakfast, Mom."

“You know she only agreed to go out with you to spite Brandon and Kelly," Bobby persisted. "Are you looking to get your heart broken? I've never liked her. She ignored you all through high school, and now she's using you to make Brandon jealous. Why are you playing along?"

"Mind your own business, Bobby. I'm a grown man and can take care of myself. I know what I'm doing."

Bobby shook his head. "No you don't. You're going to lose your head over a woman who doesn't give a crap about you. And never has."

"Let it alone, okay? I want to go out with her."

Bobby slammed his coffee cup onto the kitchen table and sloshed coffee everywhere. “You’re as stubborn as a mule, so I might as well shut up, but don’t let her hurt you, Ross. You deserve better.”
