Don’t Look Back Teaser + Giveaway!

1 Apr


Chewing on my lip, I read the entire menu three times. Coffee—my choice of coffee— should be simple, but it wasn’t. I felt…lost.


“Hey,” Carson said from behind me, his breath warm on my cheek, causing me to jump. “You doing okay?”


Feeling my cheeks burn, I nodded.


A man behind me sighed, muttering. I heard the words stupid and rich tossed about. My mortification level soared to new heights.


Carson pulled me out of line, shooting the guy a dark look of warning. “What’s your deal?” he asked.


I glanced down at where his hand wrapped around mine. How could such a simple touch feel sweet as sin? Probably not the best thing to be thinking about given I couldn’t place an order for coffee.


“Sam,” he said, impatient.


Lifting my gaze, I was horrified to feel tears building. “I don’t know what to order.” My voice cracked. “I don’t know…what I like.”


Understanding softened his jaw, and he nodded. “You usually drink a latte—vanilla.” He paused, dropping his hand. “I’ve seen you drink them. Stay here and I’ll order.”


I waited off to the side while he placed the order. People were staring at me. I felt like a child, unable to complete the simplest task. I wanted to crawl into a hole somewhere. There was no doubt in my mind that Carson thought I was an idiot.


When he returned with my drink, he popped the lid on the cup. “Careful. It’s hot.”


“Thank you.” I wrapped my hands around it, welcoming the warmth slipping through the java sleeve.
