“Sarah,” Angel called out again a little louder, and she turned to see him at the door. “Who are you calling?”
“Valerie,” she said, wiping the tears away from her face.
“So she can come pick me up.”
hurried to her, and Alex walked out of the apartment behind him. Sarah
put her phone down before dialing Valerie, waiting for him but not sure
what to expect. Angel’s rigid expression softened the moment he got
close enough to see her better in the dark. “Why are you crying?”
“Why do you think?” she said, trying not to sound too angry, but she was only it was mostly at herself.
He took a step forward. “Why’d you come here?”
“Because I wanted to talk to you, but—”
what? About *him?” he asked, but he didn’t sound nearly as angry as he
had earlier on the phone or when he said he didn’t want her there. He
sounded scared now.
“No, about us.” She gulped back the emotion, glad that Alex had stayed behind with Romero and had given them a moment.
“What about us?” Angel asked, his eyes going a little wild. “What are you saying?”
* Whispers... by him Angel is not referring to Sydney. So who is making his eyes go a little wild? Find out tomorrow! ;)

Now the setup for this weeks teaser. Y'all remember Sydney right? Well, after 2 years of not having seen him he's dropped by unexpectedly to visit and has some big news/revelations. You won't get to hear about the first reason for his visit here. That you'll have to wait and read about in the book. ;) But he does let her in on something else in this teaser! Happy reading!
By the time she’d set up Sydney on the
front room sofa and was getting ready to climb in her bed, she remembered
Carina and felt bad that they’d spent the whole night discussing her issues—again. His Carina troubles
and asking Sydney about them had been the last thing on her mind. She tiptoed
out into the front room in case he’d already fallen asleep. The second she
walked in the room he turned to her and smiled. “Can’t sleep?” he asked. “I
He patted the spot on the sofa adjacent
to his waistline. A million years ago, or at least that how long ago it felt,
she would’ve thought nothing of it and plopped right down next to him. There
was no way now. She leaned against the hallway doorway instead.
“I meant to ask you,” she said,
rethinking having gone out there in her sleep clothes—an oversized T-shirt and
undies. Tugging at the bottom of her shirt, she continued, “So things are not
so great with you and Carina?”
Sydney grimaced. “We broke up actually.”
Sarah’s brows shot up, and her heart
actually ached for him. He and Carina had been together as long as she and
Angel had. “Really?” She pouted, feeling even worse about not having asked
earlier.” What happened?”
“Long story,” he said, sitting up with a
“Tell me,” she urged.
It didn’t feel fair that, as usual,
their entire conversation tonight had been mostly about her and her issues. For
the past several years—ever since the whole nightmare started with her mom
being sent to jail and Sarah having to move out to California then dealing with
the trial against her coach and every other new thing that happened to her—it
was always the same thing. They’d spend the majority of their conversations
discussing her dilemmas, and, like tonight, something as big as Sydney breaking
up with his girlfriend of nearly three years had not even been brought up. She
felt disgusted with herself.
“If I tell you, you gotta promise you’re
not gonna feel bad or try to talk me out of it. My mind is made up. Okay?”
Sarah tilted her head, confused. She
already felt bad for him. That was a given. This was huge, and she knew how
much Sydney cared about Carina. She’d been his first everything. But trying to
talk him out of it?
She nodded. “Okay . . .”
With a deep breath, he began. “She’s
never been able to deal with you in my life, Lynn, even from a distance. We’d
been having other issues too, but that was the biggest one. It’s why I hadn’t
come around in so long. Last year, when I cancelled my trip out here last
minute, it wasn’t because of my car issues. It was because, when I told her
about the trip, things got hairy.”
Sarah remembered how disappointed she’d
been when that happened, but she never for a second questioned his reason.
“After another huge argument we had a
few weeks ago,” he continued, “she gave me an ultimatum:
her or you.” He shrugged with a small smile. “Of course I chose you.”

Happy Teaser Tuesday everyone! Ya ready to go back to ...
Back to these two
Just a few years older?
I am too! So without further ado, let's see what Angel and Sarah are up to.
Set up: Sarah and Angel are at his house. The Moreno's are having a birthday gathering for mama Moreno. Sarah gets a text.
Sarah picked up her phone, hoping it wasn’t
anything from Sydney but a little worried it might be. She was worried, not
because of Angel, but because she’d picked up on something not being right when
Sydney had called her a second time in one day after she hadn’t heard from him
To her relief it wasn’t Sydney. It was a
text from her mom.
Are you going to be there
much longer? I have a surprise for you, and I can hardly wait for you to get
That piqued Sarah’s interest instantly,
and she smiled. Surprise? Her mother
had never been good about keeping surprises from her for long, so it made her
wonder how long she’d had this up her sleeve. She hadn’t heard anything about
this until now. Sarah was turning
twenty-one that year, but that was still months away.
She didn’t even realize what a big goofy
smile she wore until she noticed Angel staring at her strangely. “My mom,” she
said as she texted back. “She’s asking how much longer I’m gonna be. She has a
surprise for me.”
The strange expression on Angel’s face
was replaced with one as curious as she felt. “Surprise?”
“Yeah,” she said as she sent the text
asking for a hint. “My mom’s never been good about keeping surprises from me.
In fact, she stinks at it. It’s why she can’t get me anything for my birthday
or Christmas until the day before because she doesn’t trust herself not to blow
it early.” Sarah laughed. “Whatever this is she probably just got it today, and
already she’s texting me to ask when I’ll be home.”
“I can take you now,” Angel offered.
“We’re pretty much done here. Everyone’s just gonna shoot the breeze now, and I
know you said you had homework you wanted to work on.”
Feeling even more curious, especially
since her mom hadn’t responded to her text asking for a hint, Sarah nodded with
a smile. “I can’t imagine what it is.”
Angel got up from where he was sitting
and reached out his hand. “Let’s go,” he said. “I’m curious now too.”
It took her almost fifteen minutes to
say goodbye to everyone, but finally they were out of there and in Angel’s car.
Halfway home her mom responded to her text.
The only hint is you’re
really gonna like it! That’s all. Oh and maybe don’t bring Angel in. This is
something he might not be as excited about hearing as you.
There was only one thing Sarah could
think of that might not excite Angel as much as it would excite her—Sydney.
This had something to do with him, and it was likely what he’d called her twice
for today. But why wouldn’t he just tell her? Whatever it was suddenly had her
insides knotting up.
Stay tuned for the final teaser next week. Final? Yes because I'll be releasing sooner than I anticipated! Well... uploading! Remember once I upload to all the different retailers it's out of my hands. Sometimes there are delays I can't do anything about. =/
