I'm getting some questions about a promo tweet I sent out two weeks ago. Of course my answers are causing giggles. So I decided to share a bit of an excerpt from the specific scene. Just to lay the background, Brooke has a thing for John Mayer's voice. Enjoy!
Hailey left shortly after. Brooke pivoted to him and shrugged. “I have no clue how she gets away with it, playing that cute little face on me when she wants something. Am I foolish?”
He flashed a grin and followed her out of the dugout. “Not at all. Hailey has a good head on her shoulders. She knows to take it easy and understands she’ll only hurt herself more if she doesn’t.”
Her sigh reached his ears. She turned to him again and stopped walking. “I know, but still, a mother will always worry.” She glanced around, but instead of following her gaze, he kept his on her. Hair matching the color of her daughter’s, the soft light behind her seemed to give it a glow, brightening the golden highlights sparkling over the tendrils. Azure eyes gave a startling contrast against the afternoon sunset. The color and uniqueness grabbed him by the balls and refused to let go.
“What are you doing tonight?” He didn’t realize the words came from his mouth until she turned to him, arching a brow. Why had he asked her that? He knew better than most that Brooke was not someone to mess with. Asking her out would only have her drawing back, especially after her past.
“Probably falling into the tub with John, a bottle of wine, and a good book. Why?”
His brows furrowed. “John?” Who the fuck was John? Moreover, when the hell did this happen? And why did the surge of jealousy in his gut feel more like rage?
Her expression danced with humor. “Yeah, John. As in John Mayer?”
He resisted the urge to roll his eyes. “Ah, got me there.”
She grinned and poked his stomach. “Was that jealousy I heard in your voice, Dwayne?”
“No.” Fuck yes.
“What, you want to be the only man for this town?” She laughed.
“No,” he grumbled. Actually, not for the town, just you. Always you.
