"But talking to her in the bookstore this morning had reminded him why she belonged in his friend zone. Amy was smart. Bookish. Sweet but kind of clueless about real life, believing that reading a book would somehow make him feel better about his dad's wedding."
"He drummed his fingers on the countertop, pursing his lips like he was making a tough decision. "How much can you pay me?"
"P-pay?" she sputtered. What was his damage?
"Winning doesn't come cheap, Ames."
She glared. There was a big difference between funny and cockywhich he usually was—and jackassery. He'd just crossed the line."
I’m kidding.” Toff leaned across the counter, blasting her with another dimpled smile.”
“I know about life sucking, Caleb,” she muttered. "Trust me, I know. But I choose to believe…I have to believe there's a reason for everything."
“Apparently they don’t teach manners in hell.”
“Let’s stop pretending .”
"She tried to keep to the shadows as her feet pounded the pavement like empire-crushing Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games and Cammie Morgan combined into one fierce warrior."
God, he was a cliché . So was she, with her ridiculous crush on him. Maybe they belonged together after all, like the Instagram commenter suggested.
She wasn’t sure how much longer she could pretend to be immune to Toff— fake, real, and everything in between. Her resolve was fading, which was no surprise.
He willed her to look him in the eye, hoping she could tell he was serious for once. She took a breath and met his gaze. The energy between them shifted, like an electrical storm descended right over their table, crackling with lightning bolts.
Being with her felt so good. Easy. Fun. Fiery.
As Toff sat across from her, she drank him in. Suntanned and smiling, blue eyes sparkling, he made her heart skip a beat. Confused or not, she was going to enjoy this. Enjoy him. Them.
Happily Ever After, Happy for Now, whatever this was, Amy was embracing it.
