Naamahs Blessing (Moirins Trilogy #3) Shakespeares Trollop (Lily Bard #4)

I focused my sole attention on the figure standing at the free-throw line, not looking quite as composed as he’d looked a few minutes ago.

It’s just a statue, Duchess, he said smiling at my expression. She doesn’t bite. I’ve done several drunken dives into that fountain, I should know.I smiled weakly and took the long way around the car to avoid looking at it.

Protecting His Witness (Red Stone Security #7)

Caleb took me firmly by the elbow as we approached the door. I had the distinct feeling that he thought I was going to run. I wanted to.As the door swung open, I was given a brief glimpse of what his mother thought of meeting me. She was caught off guard, perhaps we arrived a minute earlier than she expected. Her face was set in a hard scowl as she faced her husband, as if they had just exchanged bitter words. I saw him look at her in disapproval and I knew—a gut feeling that it had been about me. Seconds passed, the air argument was swept under the rug and they were both smiling at us, welcoming me into their home. I stood to the side like a forgotten accessory as Caleb embraced his mother, kissing her on the cheek. She was evaluating me even as she stroked his hair and marveled out loud about how handsome he was. I could taste her dislike in the way her eyes darted to my hair and back to my face as she waited politely for her beloved son to introduce us. At last, Caleb gave his stepfather a slap on the back, man to man affection, and turned toward me.This is Olivia, I heard him say and I smiled timidly stepping out from behind his broad shoulders.

Shadow Game (GhostWalkers #1)

Mother Dearest eyed me like I was a rotting carcass and stepped forward to take my hand. I was annoyed by her immediate dislike of me. I wanted her approval. I wanted it like I wanted him.Caleb, you’ve found yourself the prettiest girl in Florida, his stepfather said, winking at me. I relaxed.

It’s very nice to finally meet you, his mother nodded tightly.

I saw Caleb look from me to his mother and I inwardly cringed. He knew. I looked down at my cheap shoes in shame. I had bought them especially for this occasion. I wished I was better at hiding things from him. I wished I had bought a more expensive pair of kickers.Sam drops the armful of laundry he’s holding. I can see his back shaking with laughter as he bends to pick it up.

Caleb is ignoring me, scrolling through his phone.All the men in my life treat me like I’m a joke.

Straddling the Line (Play by Play #8)

I’m going on vacation, I announce to both of them. Caleb looks up and raises an eyebrow.What are you saying, Leah?

He is goading me. I don’t know why I take the bait.I’m saying that with or without you, I’m going.

I march out of the room so I don’t have to see his expression. Why do I feel like a ten-year-old? No, there is nothing wrong with me. It’s him. He doesn’t want me for who I am. He wants to make me someone else. This is a game Caleb and I have been playing for years. He gives me a standard by which to live, I fail.What are you doing? He grabs me by the arm as I try to walk away.

You’re trying to control me.The idea of a controlled Leah bores me, I assure you. However, being part of a family means making decisions as a unit.
