I may or may not be obsessed with this cover. It perfectly captures the tension and chemistry between the two characters, Brody and Kate, and there might be a kitchen scene in the book that starts like this... but I am beyond stoked to rerelease this crazy, friends-to-lovers story that will make you laugh, and maybe cry.

“I have to bat. Don’t punish me too much, please?” She puppy-dog eyed me before jogging off. She hit a solid single to right field and jumped up and down, so excited that she slipped off the bag.
“You good?” I shouted, not even trying to hide my laughter.
“Emotionally bruised. That’s all.” She brushed the dirt off her ass and ran like a fool when the next person hit a triple. She jogged up to me, out of breath with her hands on her knees. “Lay it on me. What do I have to do?”
“Go on a date with me. Don’t overthink it.”
“Wait, that’s it?” She looked up at me with a furrowed brow. “A date?”
“You? On a date? With me?”
“Yes, that is typically how it works, right? Or is that not what people do anymore?”
“But…Brody.” She shook her head and kicked the dirt, running her foot back and forth. “It’s you.”
“What does that mean, exactly?” Anger crept up my chest.
“You don’t do ‘dates.’” Her little air quotes pissed me off.
“I don’t really care what I do or don’t do. You lost the bet. Your punishment is a date. End of, Shorty.” I ran a hand down her arm, squeezing. “Turn off your overactive brain.”
A smile broke through her barriers, and she bit her delicious lip. “Okay. When?”
“You’ll get details at a later date.” I puffed my chest and tried not to appear too smug.
“Oh, so your people will call my people?” She snorted, shoving me in the side.
“You realize I do have people, right?”
“Oh, my God. I forgot. You do.”
“So, I need to hear a yes.”
“Sure. I guess. I don’t have a choice.” She grumbled and picked up her glove to walk to her car.
“No, you don’t.”

You get the picture. Everyone has those set of things/actions/sounds that drive them wild. This is just a short list but I opened up Pandora's box today. I needed to research more pet peeves for this awesome character I'm writing and I tend to incorporate my own... because they drive me crazy and are easy to write about...but I wanted something different. #Regrets
I stumbled upon the worst, cringe-worthy pet peeves I will not be able to unread. Since I'm a caring person... I'm going to share the top ten horrifying pet peeves I can't get out of my brain.
1. The feel of chalk. (cringgggge)
2. People who take home milk from the work refrigerator.
3. The sound when people clip their toenails.
4. People scuffing their feet when they walk.
5. Heating up fish in the communal microwave.
6. People biting their nails.
7. The sound when someone with long nails scratched their skin. (gahhh)
8. Loud swallowers.
9. Creepers at red light. The people who stare at you waiting for the line to turn. (Yikes)
10.When you think you know the flavor of the jellybean... and it's totally different and your mouth dies a little bit.
The first and last one get me the most... but now I have so much fuel and ideas for this character's pet peeves.
So, any of these one of your pet peeves?
