Description

Getting dumped on Valentine's Day sucks. Just ask Lexi.

After her boyfriend dumps her via text message, all Lexi Pham wants to do is go home, curl up with some ice cream, and wallow in her misery. Too bad her roommate had other plans. Now Lexi's sexiled -- locked out of her apartment while her roommate celebrates Valentine's Day with her boyfriend... make that loudly celebrates Valentine's Day. Ugh!

Enter Nate Dawson, her hunky neighbor, and his cute dog, Titania. Nate offers her a safe haven and no-strings attached dinner while she waits out her sexile. Except Lexi would totally be down for some strings. Or at least some holiday funtimes. Now she just needs to convince the hottie-down-the-hall she's serious.

This is a steamy short story with a happy ending.

About the author

Christina Rose Andrews is actually two friends, Lark and Rose, writing underneath one penname.  A native of Colorado, Lark currently lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She is the mother to three fur babies: London, Shikamaru, and Pazu. She has an adorable godson and several very neglected plants. She graduated from East Grand Rapids High School. While at Central Michigan University, she initially studied Education and even made it to student teaching before realizing the career wasn’t for her. She graduated with a degree in “Do you want fries with that?” otherwise known as History and Earth Science. She’s a bit of Jack of all Trades, which is oddly useful when it comes to writing and gives her several real life analogues for characters and plots. In her spare time, she likes to help put on large fandom conventions and hang out with family and friends.  Rose is a New Yorker through and through. She is the proud parent of a well-mannered potted plant and the aunt to an adorable set of twins and a cute pit bull puppy. While most of her family went to Harvard, she bucked tradition and went to Haverford, where she received a degree in “How to be a Cult Leader” aka Religion and Psychology. After graduating, she pursued a master’s degree in Library Science at Pratt Institute. Currently, she works as a librarian in the suburbs of New York City. When she’s not on the train to work, she likes to read, play video games, and have tea. Because TEA!!! Lark and Rose met in an online writing community in 2009 and promptly had an argument.  After that, it was a long slippery slope into co-authorship.  They chose to write cross-cultural romance since it was something close to their hearts and it was damn near impossible to find stories featuring characters they wanted to see.  Both Lark and Rose are proponents for destigmatizing mental health, solving problems through conversation and listening, and creating real characters -- not caricatures.   ​They have presented at internationally recognized events.

The Best Worst Valentine's Day Ever

Who the fuck breaks up with someone on Valentine’s Day?

Seriously! Who? By text message, no less!

A bastard, that’s who.

Alexis Pham pulled her stockinged legs closer to her chest, wrapping her arms around them to keep her dress from slipping up. She blinked back tears.

Why couldn’t Terry have just waited twenty-four hours?

Twenty-four fucking hours.

Then it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day, and her roommate wouldn’t be getting busy with her boyfriend, Daniel, with the door chain in place! Lexi was supposed to be curled up on her couch eating Ben & Jerry’s in her pajamas like a good dumpee. Instead, she was sitting out here in the hallway on grimy carpet.

Worst Valentine’s Day ever!

She pulled out her phone and texted her roommate. *Damn it, Michelle, pull your head off Daniel’s cock and rescue me!* She shivered, wishing she’d worn her parka, hat, and scarf, rather than going for elegant in a lighter wool coat. *It’s freezing out here!*

It was the sixth text she’d sent. She didn’t have much hope of this one making any more difference than the other five.

Lexi glanced at the post-it note on the door with some annoyance. *Lexi, me and Dan are going to have a nice romantic evening in. Please do not disturb. :) —Michelle*

She leaned her head against the door, crushing the black ringlets she’d spent hours on. Music filtered through. Underneath it, she heard Michelle’s cries of More! and Yes, Daniel!

She wanted to be sick. Or cry. Possibly both.

Lexi closed her eyes and sighed. Who the fuck breaks up with someone on Valentine’s Day?

Something cold and wet touched her cheek. She looked up to see a pair of eyes, surrounded by orangey-red fur, staring at her.
