Series: Just One of the Guys #4
Author: Kristi Pelton

What happens when…
after leaving the place you called home,
to forget the girl you loved,
knowing she chose someone else,
you must now return for a wedding you can’t bear to watch.

So, you pay a beautiful girl…
to trek across the country with you,
pretending the two of you have plans for a new future,
faking a relationship in front of your old crew,
unprepared for when she slams those rounded, green eyes into you.

Suddenly, you realize…
you are actually over the bride and ready to move on,
quite sure the feelings you’ve been pretending to have,
aren’t so fake after all,
yet, she needs the money, so you continue to play along.

Trying your damnedest not to fall…
to remember she’s an ‘employee’ you paid to come along,
and keep a promise of no romantic entanglements,
until that one moment, when you know,
you have finally found your forever.

Except for the secrets that threaten it all…
an uninvited guest from her past shows up at the wedding,
threatening to crumble your dreams,
and even if she still picks you,
your dark secrets might just end everything.

EXCERPT

The reception equaled dream worthy too. The white tent was back in place with a dance floor, a DJ, and a table with a spectacular cake. Austin sat at the head table, so I sat with his parents.
“I’ll join you in just a few,” he whispered into my hair and kissed my neck. “You are so beautiful.”
My heart flipped over in my chest. Seriously. It did a complete 360. I knew it was impossible. I knew I’d be dead if it had truly flipped, but God did it feel like it. The hair on the back of my neck stood, and I wanted him by my side.  My eyes followed him all the way back to his seat. When he sat, his glance caught mine. Both of us smiled.
The toasts by Ali and Ryan were filled with memories held by lifelong friends. Friends that would be friends forever. I had only a couple of close friends. Austin’s history was full of positive, fun memories. Mine, well, it wasn’t. For the first time in my life, I had hope.
The tap on my shoulder startled me, and when I shifted around, Nick stood glaring at me. He wore his jeans, Harley boots and sleeveless shirt.
“Nick!” I gasped mortified and then immediately ushered him away from the reception so there wouldn’t be a scene. Thank God everyone was preoccupied with the wedding couple at that moment. “What in God’s name are you doing here?” I hissed scrambling away.
How was him being there even possible? This was ridiculous. He had to have hopped on a damn airplane as soon as Austin hung up on him last night.
“I know you don’t love him. This is bullshit. This is about the money, Pheebs.”
He wore the Harley Davidson shirt that I’d bought him last year. I couldn’t stand him.
I negated his words with my head shake. “No. You’re wrong.  This has nothing to do with the money. You need to leave. Now,” I gritted through clenched teeth so scared that Austin and I were only in the middle of working through this.  It was too soon for something more to happen.
“I’m sorry,” Austin growled from behind me. “You’re who the fuck?” he spat out at Nick. God, how was this happening? I wanted to cry. I wanted to run. I didn’t look at Austin.
“I’m Nick.”
“I had a feeling. May I see your invitation?”
A confused expression crossed Nick’s face.
“Oh, you don’t have one?” Austin asked. “In that case, get the fuck outta here. We are not gonna to do this here. Not tonight.”
Nick stepped closer, expanding his chest like this was going to come down to a pissing match. “I’m not goin anywhere, pretty boy.”

AUTHOR BIO

Just the fact that someone may be reading my ‘bio’ thrills me. What does one say in an author bio? Well, I LOVE to write! Sometimes characters talk to me in my head (in a non-psychotic way) and I have to get what they are saying out on paper! So, here we are!  J

I am a part-time juvenile probation officer and full-time wife, but I spend the majority of the time helping my two favorite, college-aged sons navigate through life and hopefully become the best humans they can be.

I am a huge fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Oregon Ducks, the Chicago Cubs (I have a dog named Wrigley) and the Kansas City Chiefs.

I’m terribly addicted to music—ALLLLL kinds and driving in the car with the sunroof open and radio turned up helps the creative juices flow.

I am deliciously addicted to queso and cupcakes; but even with that…I like to slowly kill my body with Crossfit. I’m annoyingly sarcastic.

People ask me ‘what has been your favorite book to write’—I would have to say my original series. (I think it sold 100 copies)  J   FINALLY, I’m tweaking them! My heart was poured into these books—but they needed tweaking.  Slick was my Amazon best seller, but every one of them mean something to me.

In the end, I truly believe life is taken way too seriously by most. I say enjoy every moment, have an adult beverage and READ!! Cheers….

EXCERPT

Back at the villa, I grabbed a beer from the fridge and retreated to the balcony. I’d missed the Oregon air. The smell of the Green Douglas Firs. I was home.
“Austin?”
Lifting my brows, I waited for what she had to say.
“You’ve done so much for me. I know that I owe you and…”
The chair flew back hitting the wall when I shot up. “Don’t, Phoebe. I paid you to come here with me, nothing more. Don’t do a goddamn thing because you think you owe me. I kissed you because I felt like kissing you. You should have just said no. I’d have respected that. But don’t kiss me because you feel some fucked up obligation.”
I stepped past her, rage boiling beneath the surface, and I stormed back inside.
“I didn’t kiss you because I felt obligated,” she whispered. “I’ve imagined that kiss a thousand times in my head since I met you.”
I stopped in my tracks and slowly pivoted around.
“Those kisses trumped every fantasy kiss I’ve had but…”
“No buts,” I stated, setting my beer on the table. I swallowed as I strode purposefully toward her without reservation. The deal sealed when she started walking too.

New Release – Convicted by Kristi Pelton

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Convicted
Author: Kristi Pelton
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2019

BLURB

Nothing in life has ever come easy for the boy from the other side of the tracks.  

A mother that left. A father that hit. A brother that protected.

They say everything happens for a reason.

Joss Hess has spent his entire life looking for that reason.

After nearly killing a man and barely avoiding prison, Joss finds himself sentenced to 18 months on Briscoe Ranch, where certain things are expected.

Hard work. Manners. Responsibility. Respect. Worst of all—anger management and restraint.

If he fails, Joss will be sent back to the state penitentiary to serve the remainder of his sentence.

One road block stands between Joss and his freedom: Ren Briscoe

Raised by ranchers, Ren Briscoe has been around men her entire life.

Home on summer vacation, she quickly realizes that Joss Hess is unlike any man she has ever encountered before.

She hates everything about him…his filthy mouth, arrogant attitude, the way he makes fun of her purity ring and her boyfriend. Mostly, she hates him because no matter how hard she fights it, Joss occupies her every thought. He may be the convict serving his sentence; but the real prisoner is Ren.
