Excerpt from Finally: A Neighbor from Hell
I just realized that I never shared an excerpt of Finally here. At least, I couldn’t find it. So, I’m going to post one here, because I like readers to have a better idea of what the book is about before they hit click just in case it’s not really their cup of tea.
Finally is set for an April 28th. release, which is tomorrow. I hope you enjoy Devin and Charlie’s book as much as I enjoyed writing it 🙂
Excerpt from Finally
A Neighbor from Hell Novel
“That’s perfect,” Charlie said, smiling as she sat back in her chair and stared at the name of her new business.
Absolutely perfect, Charlie thought as she glanced at the time and realized how late it was. Deciding to call it a night, she clicked Save and turned off her computer before heading to her bathroom for a shower. A thousand ideas ran through her head as she stepped into the shower. She had to finish the incorporation paperwork, buy a domain, sign up for-
“Cold!” she gasped when the hot water suddenly turned ice-cold and-
“I’m not really sure yet,” she admitted as she sighed with relief when the hot water hit her.
“I see,” he murmured, sounding thoughtful from the other side of the dark curtain as she tried to remember if she’d hung her towel outside the shower or not.
“Is there something that I can help you with?” Charlie asked, hoping to keep him distracted as she reached through the opening at the other end only to wince when her hand found the metal hook empty.
“Go out with me tomorrow night,” he said, making her lips pull up into a smile.
“Well, I’d have to check my calendar to see if-Cold!” she ended up gasping when the devious man turned off the hot water.
“Are you going out with me, Charlie?” he asked, sounding bored as he slowly turned the hot water back on.
“I mean, that’s kind of short notice and everything,” Charlie said, only to end up pressing herself back against the shower wall when that large hand slowly turned the hot water off again.
“Go out with me,” he said, turning the hot water back on a few seconds later.
“Shouldn’t I consider my options?” she asked only to gasp when the evil man once again turned the hot water off.
“Is that a yes?”
“Yes! That’s a yes!” Charlie gasped as she backed up as far as the shower would allow her, which unfortunately for her, wasn’t very far.
“You could have just said that,” he murmured, sounding thoughtful as the large hand slowly turned the hot water back on.
“Well, I mean, I didn’t want you to think that I was easy or anything,” Charlie said, only to yell, “Oh, my god! Stop doing that!” seconds later.
“Then stop driving me crazy,” Devin said, once again turning the hot water only to stop mid-turn and shut it back off when she said, “Do I really have to?”
“Alright, I’ll stop!” she gasped, laughing when he turned the hot water back on. “Are you going to leave so I can get out?”
There was a pause and then…
“Well, that depends…” came the murmured response that had her eyes narrowing on the large tan hand still holding the hot water faucet.
“On whether or not you give me a kiss goodnight.”
