Blurb:

Jenna West has no idea what she might have done to her new tenant Mike Hightower. He's surly and hateful every single time they meet, and he looks at her as though he despises her.

He does despise her. She's from the Middle East, and people like her killed his friend Ramirez when the army sent them to Iraq.

Will the power of love work its magic to soften Mike's bitter hatred, or will he ignore his growing attraction for his pretty landlady?

Last Week:


“Hi, I’m Mike Hightower. I have an appointment with Mr. Jacobs.” 

The receptionist gave Mike a sweet smile. “He’s expecting you, Mr. Hightower. I’ll tell him you’re here. Will you sign in for me, please?” she asked as she handed him a clipboard. 

As she stood, Mike noted with amusement that she deliberately displayed her cute little figure and long, slim legs. She had dark hair and a smooth, fresh complexion. As rich as a decadent piece of chocolaty fudge, her eyes locked with his and invited him to notice her.


This week: Mike talks to his new boss.

Stan Jacobs came bouncing out of his office to greet Mike. He exuberantly threw his arms around his old army buddy. “Man, you’re a sight for sore eyes. How have you been?”

“Better since I got my discharge.”

“Yeah, I know what you mean. I don’t miss the army at all even though I do miss my buddies.”

“I feel exactly the same way.”

“Come on in and let’s have some coffee.”

Things are going well so far, but now I’m waiting for the hammer to fall. :-)

Veronica Scott said...

Things are starting off well, but as Christina said above, I have a feeling the meeting will go downhill? Enjoyed the excerpt.

Sue Barr said...

Nice snippet, you're building the story nice and steady.

Amy Braun said...

Glad they're on the same page!

Aurora Springer said...

They sound like good buddies.

We love it (in real life) when a meeting begins as well as this has. Now for the catch ... for there surely is one!

Christiane France - Author said...

Sounds like he'd already noticed her. Great scene.

Diane Burton said...

What great buddies! I wonder what's the catch. Maybe I'm too suspicious. A good snippet like this will make me turn the page.

A good meeting. The military does form incredible bonds...

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Nice reunion.

Ed Hoornaert said...

So far it seems like this will be a solid relationship.

Caitlin Stern said...

Everybody needs a good friend or two. :)

Great snipet, and it sounds like these two are good friends - or or they? Like others I had a tiny twinge of 'is this as good as it seems'!
