CURIOUS ABOUT BOOK 6??
I finally have some answers!
New Title : WORTH IT (It's not going to be "Worthless" after all, sorry! I change my mind too much, I know.)
Release Date : Definitely August 2015...I think! Okay, I don't really know yet. But I'm pretty sure it'll be August...ish!
Why isn't it Asher's turn now? He'll star in Book 7, for sure. I just needed to set up a couple more things in his background before he was ready for his story. Trust me, you'll see what I mean after reading Worth It!
Who is Knox?
Okay, fine. Here's a sneakety peak excerpt about Knox Parker!
“Hey, everyone. This is Knox Parker. He’s our new bartender.”
All four men spun around, and every gaze landed on me.
The fourth guy finally wandered closer, eyeing me up and down. “Since when do we have a new bartender?”
“Since today,” Pick answered casually.
Mr. Curious hitched his chin Pick’s way. “Is this the ex-con?”
Pick shook his head and sighed. “Ten,” he muttered. “You got a big fucking mouth, you know that?”
“What?” Ten shrugged. “Was I supposed to keep that secret?”
“Just...” Pick lifted his hands. “Let’s not go spreading his record around outside the six of us, okay? In fact, for the first week or so, you all don’t even know his name. Got it?”
None of the other bartenders seemed to get it. They stared at him as if he’d lost his mind. I gave him my own confused glance, wondering why he wanted even my name kept under wraps. But he didn’t explain himself.
Finally, the one Ten had called Lowe pointed at me as he asked Pick. “Is he—”
“Yes,” Pick clipped out, sending Lowe a hard stare before Lowe whirled back to me and studied me from head to toe.
A moment later, he huffed out a strange sounding, “Oh.”
I had no idea what they were talking about, so I transferred a leery scowl between the two of them, hoping they’d clue me in. But all Lowe did when I glanced at him was offer me a nervous smile and a greeting nod, which only made me warier. What the hell?
From his bar stool, Hart tipped his chin up and decided to talk to me directly. “So what’d you do time for?”
I turned my attention to him, and something in my gaze must’ve intimidated him because he took an untrusting pull back in his seat. Since it was obvious I already skeeved him out, I couldn’t help myself; I answered, “Rape and murder.”
A pregnant pause followed before Ten exploded, “What the fuck, Pick? You just hired a murdering rapist to work with us? DUDE!”
Pick sent me a dry glance as if to tell me to keep my mouth shut. But I only gazed back, unrepentant. It wasn’t as if I’d lied. I HAD done time for both accusations.
Rubbing a spot on his forehead, Pick frowned at his bartenders. “How long have you idiots known me? Do you honestly think I’d hire a rapist?”
The disgust in his voice seemed to relieve them, but the one still standing closest to me, visually inspecting me, asked, “What about the murdering part?”
Pick shrugged. Then he glanced at Lowe and murmured, “I’m sure he had a good reason for that.”
“Oh, great. That’s just great.” Ten threw his hands into the air and spun away, before facing Pick again. “When he rapes and murders ME, please tell my wife he PROBABLY had a good reason for it.”
Hart, still sitting in front of the laptop snickered. “If he murdered you, Ten, he WOULD have a good reason.”...more
