A Really Bad Idea

A Really Bad Idea

Everyone has a best friend. Mine just happens to be Dr. Christian Gallagher— the gorgeous, green-eyed heart surgeon who wants to have a baby with me. Yes, you read that correctly. When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman. Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won’t settle in order to make it happen. That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together. It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet…I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be. There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates. Sounds easy, but it's not.I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life. Whoever said sex doesn't change things never went to bed with their best friend.

A heart-wrenching breakup, an accident… a loss. Stretching out my right hand, I am reminded of the worst year of my life and all the dreams that faded in one awful weekend. For six months I was numb. And then I met a man. An intense, complex, emotion extracting, sinful man. If there's one thing I notice it’s the piercing gaze he is giving me. So piercing because of Golden Eyes. But what my heart doesn’t know…is he here to save me or is he the one who needs saving?

When you fall in-love it’s forever But sometimes forever comes with a price. I never meant to meet Nathaniel Teller. It was by accident, on a Tuesday, that I walked into his bar. He was solemn, intense and hiding a secret behind those stoic green eyes. I never intended to fall in-love with him. We were supposed to be just friends. But I fell for him hard, deep. There’s no turning back. I never thought his past would be so dark. And if I thought I had any chance of being in his future, I was wrong. Because his past is his future. And I need to walk away.

Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass cop. A splash of sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice. That’s how you’ll get to my current situation. You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand, pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at the local bar? That’s me. Leah Marie Paige. I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to my dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan. Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is definitely mutual. Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one. So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal, doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were different. There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I need to stay away from him. It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served shaken, not stirred.
