Well I’ve completed Torn and it is currently with the editor! All things going according to plan it’s looking like an April release for the conclusion to Lauren’s story. But if you’d like a taste of what’s to come, here’s a teaser from chapter seven . . .
“I’m not interrupting anything, am I?” Gabe teased as Tyler quickly moved away from me.
Disappointment crept across my chest. Disappointment and annoyance. I shouldn’t be so easily swayed by seeing Tyler shirtless. Placing his foot between us, Gabe sunk into the water, wrapping his arms around us both, grinning stupidly until Tyler stood, water streaming down his body, and climbed out.
“Don’t leave on my account,” Gabe called after him. But Tyler didn’t reply. Instead, only wet footprints were left behind. “That guy has zero chill,” Gabe said, his arm still wrapped around my shoulder. “I hope you two weren’t talking about your relationship. It’s against the rules. I, on the other hand, would never defy the rules by talking. Besides, there are things other than talking which I’d far rather engage you in.”
Physically lifting Gabe’s arm away, I sighed. “Why do you have to taunt him like that?”
“Like what?” Gabe appeared genuinely confused. “You were mine first, Lauren. That makes him the bad guy, not me.” Gabe locked his hands behind his head, eyes sparkling. “Now you’re not with either of us, and I don’t know about Tyler, but I’d like the chance to change your mind.”
