Simon has developed feelings for the girl who bedeviled him growing up, his best friend’s sister—not that Alys is a girl any longer. She’s a grown-up, beautiful, wonderful woman who makes him crazy. He obtains her brother’s permission to date her, and asks her out. And is rejected.

Alys is innocent and plans to stay that way until she meets a man who holds the same moral code, regardless of her lengthy crush on Simon. Privy to his escapades and conquests, her jealousy has turned to distaste and she sets herself on a different path.

She wants a man who has refrained from meaningless affairs, who has waited for the special woman.

Simon does the research but Google assures him he can’t become re-virginized and thus Alys is beyond his reach—until one day when he takes her for lunch in his beloved truck. That day, love changes everything.

  • You say it like it’s a badge of honor. Being busy.” She knew she sounded like some judgmental bitch, but it had ground and grated the only way jealousy could on a teenage crush when she witnessed Simon’s conquests. And maybe later in life too.

  • Busted heart flush,” Simon pointed out, staring at Alys.She paled and then—flushed. Eleanor glared—at everyone. Mission accomplished.

Chapter One

She was driving him insane. Right up the fucking wall. Bonkers, if anyone outside of England ever used that word anymore. When had she become more than his best friend’s little sister? The one who chased after them every chance she got. Who hung on their words and tried to infiltrate their activities. The little sister they were sometimes mean to, but not often because Jeff looked after his flesh and blood far better than their parents ever did.

Simon clenched his hands at his side to avoid tearing his hair out. He liked his hair right where it was, and no tiny sprite of a girl was going to force him to take action against it. Girl. Okay, woman. Alys might be short and weigh maybe a buck ten soaking wet, but she was most definitely not a girl.

Girls didn’t have a full rack and curvy hips and an ass that drew the eye of any straight male between the age of puberty and Viagra. And maybe some of the gay guys too.

She was like a pocket Venus, another term that came bubbling to the forefront of his brain from an earlier age. And damned if he didn’t want to pick her up and drop her in his pocket. Not the one on his shirt. Oh, no. Right smack in his pants pocket, next to his cock. That same appendage refusing to acknowledge his instruction to stand the fuck down.

Though he wouldn’t mind carrying her right next to his heart, either… Definitely not.

Biting back a groan, he schooled his features into what he hoped was a calm, inscrutable look, nothing to reveal the insane draw Alys had on him of late. It was like some part of him had woken up and couldn’t settle without her. He couldn’t get involved, even if she was interested, and she’d done nothing to indicate otherwise. Nope, he was firmly in the friend category.

Simon? Jeff shoved an elbow into his ribs. Your turn, man.

He snapped his attention back to his cards, studying them intently. Registering a healthy pair of Queens, backed up by an Ace of Spades, he shoved the minimum bet into the pot. It had rapidly built during his introspection. Call.

A sweet voice, flavored with a husky undertone, one that made the hair on his arms stand up, announced, Raise.

Keeping his gaze on his hand, he caught the sight of Alys’s slender fingers coaxing a number of chips toward the center of the table. The nails were painted a bright, glittering blue with tiny stars applied to the forefingers.

Blue. With stars. He blinked to dispel the image. He dated women who favored scarlet polish, maybe a dark pink, on their talons—no stars. No additional embellishment. Tall, elegant blondes who never put a foot wrong, never a hair out of place unless it was in his bed and sometimes not even then. Even years ago, as a randy teen, he’d done the cheerleaders, usually blondes with an athletic build and part of the mean girl contingent, more often than not.

The betting continued around the table, with everyone folding until it came to him. His hands somehow didn’t shake, despite the effort it took to maintain his casual demeanor, and he forced a cynical smile. With the cards on board, it made sense to raise Alys, but entering into a competition with her spelled some weird form of disaster.

He folded, and threw her a short, Congrats.

Her chuckle didn’t entertain a hint of gloating, merely pleasure that she’d won yet another hand as she accepted the chips Andrea pushed her way. I think I might have found a poker game I actually understand.

He doubted it. More like the Goddess of Luck or something shone down on her. Alys sucked at cards, except maybe Go Fish or Snap. He wasn’t being a prick. Math was simply beyond her understanding, and she was the first to announce that salient fact. He’d know, having volunteered to do her taxes. Okay, Andrea had volunteered him and his mouth had given his agreement without a second thought. His best friend’s fiancée mothered Alys and expected him to step up. Which wasn’t a hardship, except it put him in her proximity more often and further strained his resolve.

I’m out, he said, tossing his cards into the middle of the table and then shoving his chair back.
