    A sexy, friends-to-lovers, second-chance romance with a twist by USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.

    To be “just friends” with a guy, you’ve got to follow The Rules:
    Don’t touch him unnecessarily.
    Don’t share your intimate dreams with him (even if he asks).
    Don’t kiss him, and definitely don’t sleep with him.

    Scout Dunne and I have been “just friends” since childhood.
    He’s everything you could want—sexy, charming, confident—every girl’s wet dream.
    Until we broke The Rules.
    We broke them in the ocean, in my aunt’s bathroom, in my bed…
    It was the hottest week of my life.
    I’m one of the few people who knows the first-round NFL draft pick wants more than a life of sports.
    Because we’re friends, right?
    Not anymore.

    Now he’s gone, and I’m trying to get my career back on track.
    Mamma said a guy would never put your dreams ahead of his.
    But the twist of fate?
    It’s something you never see coming.

    (TWIST OF FATE is a STAND-ALONE friends-to-lovers, single-parent romance. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

    “It’s been a long time since we danced together.”
    She doesn’t look up, but her smile grows. “It was homecoming, first dance of the year.”
    “And the last. I still can’t believe you didn’t go to prom with me. All high school romances end at the prom.”
    Her nose curls. “We were not a high school romance.”
    “We might’ve been. The high school quarterback, all around hot guy who falls for the quiet, bookish future librarian. It’s the perfect setup for a movie.”
    “All-around hot guy…” Her brown eyes roll adorably, and I’m glad the tension seems to have melted. “I’m not a future librarian.”
    “I know.” I think about that night. “You did promise to have my back, though.”
    “Until you broke the rules and kissed me.”
    “It was a really good kiss. We should try it again to see if we’ve still got it.”
    She steps out of my arms. “I’ve got a job to finish. Then I’m leaving Fireside.”
    “Okay.” I shrug. “I’m not going to be here for long. Maybe we could pass the time together. Hang out.” I lean down to catch her eye. “What do you say, Tink?”
    “Tinkerbell. You remind me of her.”
    “Does that make you Peter Pan, the eternal man-child?”
    “I’m no child.” It comes out a bit hungrier than I intended, and her cheeks turn red so fast.
    Should I say oops? I’m sure as hell not taking it back.
    “I’ve got to go.”
    She does it, too. She walks off, leaving me alone on the dance floor…
