Sometimes you need a bit of tough love to get where you’re supposed to be
From award-winning and international best-selling author @melanieasmithauthor comes a standalone steamy contemporary romance about life choices, love, and finding yourself in between.
I roll my eyes at the obvious setup. Which totally worked. Dammit.
“Uh-huh. So since you’re not trying to get Nate and I together, you won’t mind me telling you I have no intention of dating him. This is a pitstop, Gran. I’m not staying forever, so there’s no point.”
Gran shrugs. “May as well have some fun while you’re here.”
“Nate seems … okay and all, but I wouldn’t exactly call him fun,” I point out. Smoking hot, yes. A towering, intense hunk of man I can imagine having fun between the sheets with, absolutely. But not in my Gran’s house. And in another life where I was the type of person to have casual sex. One where I also wasn’t in a tailspin.
She waves a hand airily. “You have to get to know him. Trust me, he’s plenty fun.”
I cock an eyebrow at her. “I still think it’s you who has the hots for this guy, Gran,” I tease her.
She blushes just enough to confirm that’s true.
Melanie A. Smith is an award-winning and international best-selling author of steamy contemporary romance fiction. Originally from upstate New York, she spent most of her childhood in the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to Los Angeles for college. After that, she spent almost fifteen years in the Seattle Area, and now lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas with her family.
A voracious reader and lifelong writer, Melanie’s writing began at a young age with short stories and poetry. Having completed a bachelor of science in electrical engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a master’s in business administration at the University of Washington, her writing abilities were mainly utilized for technical documents as a lead engineer for the Boeing Company, where she worked for ten years.
After shifting careers to domestic engineering and property management in 2015, she eventually found a balance where she was able to return to writing fiction.
Melanie is also a Mensan and enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and driving with the windows down and the stereo cranked up loud.
