With the upcoming release, High Scandal, I got to thinking on some secrets people may keep. In my daily job, of course, I hear many. All of which I can't spill on here. *winks*
Anyhow, so in my “research” (yes, that’s what we like to call it now) I came across an article that was screaming for my boy Tristan to get ahold of.
Wait – brakes screech – where’s Bari and who in the hell is Tristan?
Well, ladies, you know that broody man, who is handsome, successful, a bit of an ass, and falls hard? That’s my boy Tristan and he’s the lead in my upcoming release, High Scandal. (Due out at the end of the month through Evernight Publishing.)
Any who, back to this article. It was called, 100 Guy Secrets Every Girl Must Know. Now…we are so not going through one hundred guy secrets – who would have thought they’d have so many – but Tristan wanted to touch on a few.
See what he had to say.
Tristan and I are hanging out on the couch, “researching” – there’s that word again – the internet for some ideas, something to make us laugh, something to get through a boring Monday evening. He leans back, and wraps an arm around the back of the couch and I have to laugh.
“Watch it, Mr. White; the hubby will be home soon.”
Tristan chuckles, a deep sound that rumbles through the entire couch.
I click on an interesting article and lean in to the laptop to get a closer look. Tristan starts that low laugh again, distracting me from my task, and causing all kinds of things inside to go ….gooey. (Yes, I did, in fact, just use that word. It’s a technical word. Look it up. *winks*)
“Whatcha laughing about, Tristan?”
He points to the screen and reads, “If a guy cries in front of you during a fight, he’s just using the drama to get your sympathy.” Tristan rolls his eyes and turns his dancing gaze to me. “Sweetcakes, if a guy cries, there must be something in his eye.”
“You have some dessert?”
Tristan arches a perfect brow. “What?”
His look turns droll. “It’s a nickname.”
“You gave me a dessert nickname?” I pause but cut him off as his mouth opens, loving the hell out of teasing him. “Because I’m so sweet?” I bat my lashes, in typical female form, grinning inside like a two-buck-chump.
He grins and rolls his eyes. “Yes, cause you’re that sweet, D.C.”
I shake my shoulders and turn back to the screen, grinning ear to ear. “Okay, what about this one? Guys will never understand why girls need to spend an entire hour in the shower?”
I turn expectantly towards Tristan.
He frowns, then his face transforms into a heart stopping smile, his eyes twinkling with just the right amount of mischievousness. “Actually, guys will never understand why girls need to spend an entire hour in the shower…alone.”
I lifted my head and we nod in sync. “Gotcha.”
Tristan points back to the screen. “We find it cute when you’re a messy eater. That’s true, D.C. It’s also a great excuse for that hour long shower.” He wiggles his brows and I shake my head, chuckling.
I scroll down the screen and burst out laughing. “Some guys still have teddy bears on their beds!”
He blanches and my laugh grows.
“Who in the hell wrote this, D.C? If a guy has a teddy bear on his bed, trust me, he hasn’t reach maturity yet.”
I chuckle and scroll down some more, my mind growing wary of this article. “Ah, here’s one. A guy won’t kiss a girl on her forehead unless he’s really serious about her.”
Tristan shakes his head. “Nope, not true. See?” Tristan leans forward and drops a kiss on my head just as my husband walks in. A look of, ‘you’re so gonna get it’ crosses Mr. D.C’s face and I start to laugh. Tristan scrambles off the couch and makes a dash for the back door.
I wave. “Thanks, Tristan. Now RUN!”
