Rule #1: Do not sleep with your best friend
Rule #2: If you sleep with your best friend, sneak out like a thief in the night and hop a plane to another continent to avoid embarrassment
Rule #3: Once safely on another continent, do not answer your phone, text messages, or email. In fact, you should burn them all
Rule #4: Pretend that night and your entire friendship never existed and start a whole new life
Rule #5: Do not, under any circumstances, return to the scene of the crime…
I have kept these five simple, totally reasonable rules for the last six months, focusing all my energy on my new job at Vector Racing. A full Atlantic Ocean away from Hunter Holland and my great big terrible mistake.
I would rather end our friendship than face being friend-zoned by the handsome shortstop with magical hands that gave me a night I’ll never forget. (Seriously, I didn’t know that could be so good… *shivers*)
But now I’m in very real danger of breaking Rule #5. My boss is dragging me back across the ocean for a meeting with the Mantas where I’ll be forced to hide in the shadows and creep around every corner just in case Hunter isn’t with the team in Seattle. Which of course he will be. Why wouldn’t he?
No one knows Tilley Villanueva better than I do. Which is why I’m not mad she ghosted me after the best night of my life. I know she’s freaking out and probably has a whole set of rules she created to help deal. She’s cute like that.
That’s why I made my own set of rules. The only way to fight fire is with fire. One of these days I’m going to get Tilley alone again, and when I do, all bets are off.
