Today I am so pleased to welcome Becca Seymour to Joyfully Jay. Becca has come to talk to us about her latest release, No Wrong Moves. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
They all spoke at once, so I had no idea who said what. “Guys, you’re being extra, and I’m not even going to ask how much money’s riding on this bullshit with that sort of reaction. And on that note, I’m going home.”
“For phone sex?”
I snorted at the hope in Cassius’s voice. “To sleep and get a good rest before tomorrow’s game, god of alligators.” I followed up with a back slap, and after saying goodbye to the guys, I headed out, chuckling loudly at Cassius’s, “God of sticks. Jesus. How hard is it to get right?”
It took me all of five minutes to get home, courtesy of living in the same gated estate as Cassius. It came in handy, living so close. Though with their weird investment in my pretty much nonexistent love life these days, maybe I needed to move and find somewhere with huge-ass gates.
Once at my pad, I showered, got my running gear ready for the morning, then headed to bed. Tucked up, I opened my phone and call list. Eddie’s name was at the top, like it usually was. I hesitated before clicking on his name, feeling called out by my friends and my fixation on Eddie. They didn’t actually know we spoke every day. Sometimes it would only be for a minute, another for a couple of hours. But that’s what you did with your friends, right?
I ignored the echo of “bullshit” zipping around my brain. There had never been another friend I spoke to every day. Ever. Not even when I was a kid. The thing was, with my heart and soul heavily invested, and friendship the one thing on the table, I grabbed on to it like a lifeline. Wanting and needing and, hell, loving our connection.
Sure, phone sex, just like the real deal, would be a hell of a sweetener, but this had to be it. And I was okay with that, or as okay as I ever would be.
Did I think it was healthy? The hell if I knew, but I wasn’t prepared to change a thing. With that thought in my mind, I hit Eddie’s name and smiled, waiting for him to answer.
Zone Defense, Book 3
Pining for your best friend sucks ass—and not the good kind of sucking. But I can’t back away, and I definitely can’t let go. Eddie Phelps is too damn important to me. He has my heart and soul. Well, he and his daughter, a ten-year-old who one day will run the world.
It’s not like I can even blame Eddie for mixed signals or anything. He’s done everything right. He always does. Honestly, that’s part of his problem.
But I won’t put pressure on him. That means it’s down to Eddie to see how freakin’ awesome a catch I am. I just have no idea how exactly I’ll get him to do that.
Sure, I’m a professional basketball player. But once upon a time, so was he. It’s going to take something huge to get him to see beyond my age *cough immaturity cough*. But since Eddie isn’t one for making wrong moves, I’m not sure a grand gesture will work.
That leads me back to pining, and hoping somehow, someway, he’ll see me as more than a joker. More than his best friend—even though I’m a kick-ass one. Maybe someday, he’ll know I’m exactly the person he needs to make the move on.
Becca Seymour lives and breathes all things book related. Usually with at least three books being read and two WiPs being written at the same time, life is merrily hectic. She tends to do nothing by halves so happily seeks the craziness and busyness life offers.
Living on her small property in Queensland with her human family as well as her animal family of cows, chooks, and dogs, Becca appreciates the beauty of the world around her and is a believer that love truly is love.
