*Can nightly talks between strangers lead to true love? Find out in this sexy, fun contemporary romance.*
“Why does my happiness have to revolve around finding a
“Again, you can’t live in solitude,” Kayli said. “Isn’t it more
fun when you can share experiences with someone else? And I’m
certainly not gonna be your girlfriend.” She smiled and winked at AJ,
causing her and Jen to snort with laughter.
“Yeah, finding someone is so much easier said than done.” AJ
slid back against the couch nearly pouting. “And Kayli, I love you no
matter who you want to love. Just know that.”
“Ditto, sweetheart. We love you and want you happy, too.”
Jen stepped to Kayli and gave her a quick squeeze.
“Thanks,” Kayli said. She sat next to AJ again when released
by Jen, who then walked toward the kitchen.
Jen reappeared holding AJ’s phone. “Okay, so, maybe finding
a guy can be easier said than done, and I’ll tell ya how.”
AJ eyed her friend skeptically and asked how.
“So, there’s this online site called Flirt Chat, where people
register to just talk to others based on similarities. You know, you
program in all this information about yourself and then you seek out
others who have the same qualities, interests, whatever.”
“Okay,” AJ said hesitantly. “And you’re telling me this,
“Well, because I registered you there, and I picked out a guy
for you to talk to, and I’ve just alerted him you’re going to give him a
call.” Jen began hitting the screen on AJ’s phone, obviously punching
in numbers to contact this guy.
AJ sprang to her feet. “Oh, you did not! No way, Jen. What
Before she knew what was happening, Jen handed her the
phone, kissed her cheek, grabbed Kayli’s hand, and hauled her out the
door, laughter ringing out.
“Hello,” said the husky voice. “This is Mathias.” His few
words were clear, succinct, and surprisingly soothing.
Still, AJ remained quiet, locked up, unsure if she could even
do this. She was on the verge of disconnecting the call when Mathias
broke the silence.
“Would you like to tell me your name?”
Oh yes, definitely a voice made for phone sex. Okay, she
hadn’t called for phone sex. She wasn’t even the one who called. But
did people even do that anymore? Call for phone sex? Mathias’s sexy
timbre certainly made her think of that, giving her goose bumps and
making her short hairs stand on end.
Thanks a lot, Jen, AJ thought, remembering her laughter as
she quickly explained her scheme. Real mature for thirty-something.
Oh God, and here she sat with her phone to her ear, listening
to this undeniably alluring voice, wishing she had just hung up the
damn phone the minute the first word had been uttered.
“…and apparently you do, too.”
I do too, what?
“If you’ve changed your mind, that’s understandable. No
harm. I’ll just say good-bye, and—”
“AJ,” she blurted. He sounded so down. Disappointed. She felt
Oh my God, what is wrong with me? I don’t even know him,
and here I am feeling sorry for him because I’m the one who won’t
speak to a stranger?
She slapped her forehead as she closed her eyes and grimaced.
She swore she could hear the smile in his voice when he said
her name. She was so weak.
