Blurb:

Have you heard the rumor around campus about the locker room?

If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. One rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

Translation: baseball players are stupidly superstitious and believe the locker room has magical powers.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

The only question is, will she accept?

Excerpt:

This map is useless.

Easy to read, my ass. I need a magnifying glass to make out any of the color-coded buildings on this thing and unfortunately, I left my magnifying glass in my other skirt. That was sarcasm, if you didn’t catch it.

Standing next to a wonky-looking tree, I try to act as casual as possible—hip popped out, interested glances, the usual—as I hide a school map beneath the pages of Pride and Prejudice , while off-handedly looking for the MacMillan building. But the wind—though subtle—isn’t making things easy.

Recently transferred from Cal State, Fullerton, I’m attempting to avoid making a fool of myself on the first day of fall classes at my new school, Brentwood University.

Unfortunately, I’m way out of my element.

For one, I know nothing about this school other than they have the best library sciences program in the country. Making the transfer a no-brainer for me the minute I realized I wanted to be a librarian. I dabbled in business at Cal State, but who was I kidding? I had no right trying to figure out micro-and macroeconomics.

A California girl through and through, Illinois is nothing like the palm trees and beaches I’ve grown up with. Don’t get me wrong, there are trees here, huge, plush, green trees everywhere, the kind of trees Bob Ross made dance on his canvas. But the smog . . . I have no idea where that is. Breathing fresh air almost feels wrong. And apparently pizza is a big deal here. I’ve heard at least three separate arguments since I’ve moved about which pizza in town is best. Let’s all be friends and be grateful there is good pizza here.

And even though this is a “small” school town outside Chicago, it’s larger than life with boisterous personalities and ivy-covered buildings that cause me to believe I’m walking on the hallowed grounds where the prosperous were educated.

Plus, I had to buy leggings for all my skirts, because the temperature doesn’t call for bare legs out here.

The wind picks up again, lifting my skirt and map at the same time. Not wanting to be known as the resident flasher on campus, I save the skirt—because even though I have leggings, I chose not to wear them today—and tamp it back down on my legs as the map lifts from my book, floats into the air, twirling and swirling only to smack a passing guy right in the face.

Whap .

“What the—?” He startles and I jump into action.

“I’m so sorry,” I say, scrambling to hold my skirt down while clutching my parted book at my chest.

The map is slowly peeled away and a pair of beautiful light blue eyes peek past the paper first, followed by the sharpest jawline I’ve ever seen, defined and tense. Light scruff matches his dirty-blond hair that is swept to the left and cut short on the sides. Dressed in a green Brentwood baseball sweatshirt and wearing a jaw-dropping smile, he chuckles and hands me the map while eyeing me up and down.

Why is he so familiar?

Those eyes.

“Not a problem, but you could have asked for help if you were lost. Slapping me with a map is an aggressive tactic, effective, but aggressive.”

That voice, that smirk. I know it from somewhere.

Feeling a light blush creep up my cheeks, I say, “Not used to the wind.”

He nods and thumbs behind him. “Lake Michigan. It’s a bitch in the winter.” He studies me for a second and then nods at my map. “Where you headed? I can help.” There is the smallest southern drawl in his voice, nothing strong, but enough to tell me he’s not from Illinois.

I know that voice. I remember specifically thinking it was hot.

Tamping down my map and folding it in my book that I snap shut quickly, I say, “I promised I’d figure this all out on my own, but looks like I might need a little help after all.”

“Don’t blame yourself; this campus is a maze with no rhyme or reason. I was lost my entire first semester. Can’t tell you how many times I was late to class.”

“That’s reassuring.”

He tilts his head to the side and gives me a small once-over. “I know you.” I don’t say anything and just as his eyes land on my chest, a smile creeps over his face, a light bulb lighting in his head. “You’re the girl who helped me find my room on Saturday.”

Oh.

Shit.

It’s the yellow-door baseball guy.

He leans forward, hands stuffed in his pockets and says, “I never forget a good pair of tits.”

As if I wasn’t blushing enough already.

To save both of their reputations he suggests a fake relationship. Pretending should be easy. It shouldn’t mean the fake feelings become real. Accepting the real feelings means the lies they’ve told are even harder to hide.

When the truth comes out can their love survive or will everything just fade to black?

Exclusive Excerpt:

Prelude to Success

“Excuse me, Miss?  Can we use this chair?”  Talia’s gaze lifted from the menu.

“Uh.  I’m still waiting for someone.”

“Oh.  Alright.”  He approached another table with an empty chair.

Talia looked at her watch.  An hour late.  That son of a bitch was standing her up.  It was the last time she was going to use that dating app.

She sighed and wondered if she should leave now or wait a bit longer.

“Ready to order?”  The waiter approached the table for the fifth time.  His impatience was showing.

He had a look of ridicule.  Yes, she was being stood up.  Yes, she looked sad and lonely.  Was she going to let that get her down?  Hell, No!

“Yes.  I’d like the salmon with a salad.”  She closed the menu.

He snapped his order pad shut. Before he walked away, he made as much noise as possible taking away the other plates and glasses.

“Thanks.”  Talia mumbled taking a sip of her wine.

Talia knew she wasn’t the best catch.  She was curvy, outspoken and if she was being honest, plain.  Most men didn’t give her a second look.  Her last resort was that stupid dating app.  Staring at the seat across from her, clearly that app was crap.

While Talia waited for her meal, she took her tablet out.  She was working on an article for the tabloid magazine, The Dirty Laundry.  The last three years she’d been working her way up the chain.  Talia had an uncanny way of being in the right place at the right time for celebrity gossip.  Recently, she’d hit a dry spell.  Her current article was nothing to write home about.  Pun intended.

“Come on, baby!  I can’t wait to get back to your place.”  A familiar squeaky voice sounded from a booth to her right.

“Calm down, Gwynny.  You know I’m going to give you what you want.”  A sultry female voice answered.

Talia glanced over trying to look inconspicuous.  A beautiful blonde woman was practically sitting in the dark-haired woman’s lap.  Talia snapped her head back to her notebook.

Sitting in the booth was A-list star Gwyn Smythe.  The woman who’s lap she was sitting in was her manager, Gina Bartholomew.  This normally wouldn’t qualify as scandalous, but Gwyn was currently engaged to Zee Jaxon, A-list action star.

Talia snuck her phone out of her purse.  She strategically propped her phone up to snap consecutive pictures of the women canoodling.

“Here you go.”  The waiter placed her food in front of her.

“Thanks.”  Talia watched her phone snap the pictures.

“Anything, else.”  He snapped.

“No.”

“No wonder he didn’t show.”  He mumbled as he walked away.

The comment stung but the reality of what she was getting dulled the pain.

Twenty minutes later, Gwyn and Gina left arm and arm.  Talia texted the pictures to her boss.

Her phone pinged immediately with a message.

Talia smiled.

Dropping money on the table she grabbed her tablet and walked calmly out of the restaurant.
