I'm still hiding from the world doing a final polish on The Husband Games before my critique partners take one last crack at it, and I'm also working hard on that other surprise I might've mentioned on Monday, so here's a quick snippet of one of my favorite scenes from Mr. Good Enough. Enjoy!

“Nothing personal, but I’d rather get some fresh air.”
He rocked back on his heels, and a faint grin curved his lips. “Neighbors are watching. Word gets back to old Joe you left me here, taking my side won’t mean a thing.”
So he had noticed. She pulled herself up to her full five feet, five-and-a-half inches, and ignored the face plastered to the window of the bungalow across the street. “For your information, that was for my mother’s benefit.”
“And she wants me to take you home.”
She rolled her eyes. “That was for Joe’s benefit.”
He took a step back and tilted his head. His eyes wandered over her body. She crossed her arms, heat rising in her face. “What are you doing?”
“Trying to figure out the best way to stuff you up in the truck with the least amount of damage.”
“To you, or the truck?”
He scratched his head. “Still working on deciding that.”
