Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt from Second Chance Daddy by Lorelei M. Hart

“Andre.” He’d been the best first boyfriend anyone could ever ask for. He was sweet and patient and like to play Atari 7800 as much as I did. And maybe we only lasted until college because we went to different schools, but at the time he felt like the only boy I could ever love.

And really, aside from Gil, he was.

I shook the memory from my head and climbed out of the car. If I didn’t do this now, I wasn’t going to, and I’d regret it.

It wasn’t difficult to know which way to go. Not only were there signs directing guests to the parking lot but also a huge banner at the entrance, an information tent outside, and the smell of barbeque leading the way.

I didn’t understand the whole barbeque angle and what it had to do with deciding to go to college, but it had a magical ability to draw me near. Whoever decided that needed to be part of this event had been a genius. I wasn’t even inside yet, and I was pretty impressed with the organization of it all—although still a little bit intimidated.

Stopping at the information desk, I was pleased they didn’t ask me any questions, such as what courses I was looking at or why I was there. Instead they gave me a pretty nice tote bag, a map of the inside, and a list of phone numbers in case I had questions later. There were no Q-whatever-they-were codes on everything or just visit this website plastered on everything. They gave me names and numbers—real connections. This was designed with their target audience in mind, and I appreciated that. Maybe this was going to be what I needed.

Once inside, I followed the arrows on the floor to the main event room. Someone greeted me at the door and told me to come back if I had any questions or needed to find anything in particular. I nodded and smiled.

I wandered down the first aisle, not looking at much of anything, just getting a feel for the place. At the end was a coffee station, and I made a beeline for it. I wasn’t even that thirsty, but having something to do as I sat down and took everything in felt like a good idea. In high school, I had grabbed a soda. At least some things changed.

The coffee was remarkably not awful, considering it came out of a huge pot. I slid out into the patio through a side door. I wasn’t the only one there, but most everyone else was sitting down with a friend or mate and eating their sandwiches and treats, whereas I was hiding with a coffee.

“This is a big campus, isn’t it?” a deep voice inquired. I looked up to see a man standing beside me. My mind turned him into Andre, his words almost the same as that day. But, of course, it couldn’t be him. Not after all these years—not in the same exact scenario.

“It is a bit overwhelming,” I admitted, my eyes focused on him. He looked so much like what I imagined Andre might after all these years, far hotter than in our youth, his salt-and-pepper beard begging me to reach up and touch it.

What is wrong with me?

“I’m Penn.” I stuck my hand out, almost pulling it back when, to my surprise, instead of taking it, he sat beside me.

“I know, Penn. That’s why I came over.”

“Andre? It really is you?” It hadn’t been in my imagination. He was really here, just like last time.

“I am a professor here.” He rotated his body to face me a bit better, his eyes still holding that warm twinkle that had attracted me, made me comfortable and ready to learn more about him back when we were both just kids.
