K: You’re manic.

Yes, you can. Think of it as a favor to me.I need some new friends—good influences.

No Control (Delta Force #2)

My mouth opens, and lets out an extended Pffffffffing sound.Caleb raises an eyebrow.I’m not a good influence, I say, blinking rapidly.

After the Ex Games (The Ex Games #4)

I shift from one foot to the other, distracting myself with a bottle of maraschino cherries. I could grab the bottle, toss it at his head and run, or I could go get coffee with him. It was only coffee after all. Not sex, not a relationship, just some friendly gabber between two people who supposedly didn’t know each other.Okay, coffee. I hear the excitement in my voice and cringe. I. Am. Disgusting.

There’s a coffee shop two blocks from here on the northwest corner. I can meet you there in thirty minutes, I say, calculating the time it would take for me to get home and de-slobbify. Say you can’t make it. Say you have other things to do……

Thirty minutes, he repeats, watching my lips. I purse them for effect and Caleb ducks his head to hide a smile. I turn and walk calmly down the aisle. I can feel his eyes on my back, making me tingle.What were we fighting about when my life fell apart? Oh, yes—Ryan. Fucking Ryan. I’d not spoken to him in weeks. He was seeing a blonde, hashtagging all of his photos with #datenight. A martini sitting next to a rocks glass on a glossy bar top. That was enough to make me back off. I’d never tell someone not to text me because I was in a relationship, but I wouldn’t text someone who was. I liked women too much to mess with their men. I was in the kitchen making coffee when Darius pulled up a photo Ryan had posted to Instagram.

Did he post this for you? he said. His face was damp—greenish—like he was sweating off a fever. He held the phone in front of my face and shook it.It’s not a snow globe, Darius, I said. I grabbed his wrist and looked more closely at the picture. Ryan sat next to his baby niece on the grass. Wait, I said. Are you asking if Ryan posted a picture of himself and a baby for me?

The Risen Empire (Succession #1)

Don’t play stupid, Jolene, he said. I balked. Was this really happening?I think I’m with stupid, I said, turning away. He grabbed my shoulder and spun me back around. The white box around the picture, he said. That’s what you do to your pictures.

Yes, me and a million other Instagram users. What the fuck does Ryan’s picture have to do with me? And why are you stalking him?He’s in love with you. He swiped at his sweaty forehead with the back of his hand. He looked like a fucking crack head.

Again, what does that have to do with his niece?He didn’t stop me when I walked away. I heard his footfalls as he paced the kitchen. Back and forth, back and forth. He was opening and closing cabinets—something he did when he was anxious. Da fuck.

I’d seen him like this once before, years ago when he was leaving his fiancée and my best friend. He acted cracked out, manic. He’d sob one minute and be angry the next, then he’d start saying shit I preferred not to remember. Things that made no sense, void of logic. Like this, like the picture Ryan posted.A few hours later I was folding laundry in our bedroom. What time was it? Midnight? One? He opened the door and walked in softly, tiptoeing almost. He was minimizing his noise to minimize my temper. It was comical.
