Finding June by Caitlin Kerry

 

 

I’ve known Caitlin for a while now. We bonded over Amy Bartol’s Premonition Series. Caitlin is hilarious, a loyal friend, has misplaced love for a certain vampire, and runs a blog called The Road Is You . Through this blog I learned that Catlin kicks every day’s ass with her spirit and love for life. I’m blessed to call this woman my friend and I’m so damn proud of her!!

June’s dreams of finding the good life were washed away when she was dumped on the sandy beaches of Mexico. Now back in Boise as an overeducated server she doesn’t even know where to begin on fixing her life.

But one thing June does know is the new guy at work is one to stay away from. Reece Day catches Junes attention, even if she doesn’t want it. Reece has the uncanny ability to always get in the last word, to get under June’s skin, making her question what she really wants in life.

Excerpt
     “Hey June.” I heard Reece’s smooth and deep voice behind me. I could only think of the sound of it in my ear as he whispered sweet nothings. I turned around trying to hide the blush I was sure was becoming quite apparent. I had no idea why something as simple as his voice had that affect on me, especially since I had heard it all morning. 
      WTF. I was losing it. 
     With a smile Reece asked, “Look, I have tomorrow night off and I saw you do too. I was wondering if you wanted to grab dinner?” So he did know my work schedule. 
      “No” I said. 
     “Wow. That was the fastest rejection I have ever had.” Reece said as he crossed his arms over his chest. I was also surprised by how fast I had turned him down, especially with all the thoughts about him that had been in my mind today, mostly running towards the naughty side. But I held my ground; I knew nothing good could come from him. And after last night, this could only lead down the wrong path. 
      “Sorry. I don’t date.” 
      “No please, take your time. I don’t need an answer right away. Think about it.” Reece deadpanned.
       I was still flustered from the night before as well as Reece ambushing me right now. I started to ramble. 
      “Listen, I don’t date guys like you, ya know the ones who save cats and shit from burning trees. I am sure the world needs you but I am fine, I don’t need to grab dinner with you.” Oh holy shit I really was rambling.
       Reece, calm as usual, only simply raised his eyebrow and said, “I prefer dogs. I mean if I have to save a cat so I could take you to dinner, I could. I have done weirder things. Actually, nope that’s a lie. It would be a first.” He smiled at me and I felt butterflies having a heyday in her stomach.
