“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book
and fall in love.” (5 star review)
“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
Today’s snippet is from “I think I Love You”, book 3 of the Australian Sports Stars series.
Turning to face him, she gave him a slap on his arm. “Will you take me seriously, please?”
“I do. We’ve broken up and now we rekindle our friendship,” he replied as he reached for the cake. “Vegies so early in the morning?”
“Shut up. I’m having my orgasm here, and I need peace and quiet for that.”
Markus nearly spat out the cake in his mouth along with his snort.
Sarah shot him a glare. She was sure she’d hit rock bottom, but he didn’t have to make it that obvious.
Letting out a long sigh, she leaned back into the couch. “I’m truly sorry about yesterday, Marky. I have no idea what came over me.”
“Physical attraction,” he said with a shrug.
She moved away from him, angry tears burning the back of her eyes. “For crying out loud, for once will you take me seriously?”
“I do, baby.”
She bit her lip as she studied her face. “I’m sorry,” she whispered again.
“Saz. Let it go. It was an intense twenty-four hours. The thing with Timmy, coping through a wedding not only with a headache, but also with the disappointment. Shit happens.”
She nodded, but stayed silent, not sure how to answer that. Was he referring to her not only inappropriate but also awkward coming on to him as shit?
Not sure how to cope with her emotions and her feelings towards Markus, she placed a quick kiss on his cheek. “I’m heading back to bed to get some more sleep. I’ll catch up with you during the week.”
Sarah heard him mumbling something along the lines of Will you be all right?, but choose not to answer and headed straight into her room, throwing herself onto the bed. They’d known each other for such a long time, the thought of him as more as a friend should give her a shudder instead of tingles.
He’d obviously followed her into the bedroom, and at the sound of his low voice, she rolled over on the bed and buried her face into the pillow. “What?”
Trying to remove her pillow, he said, “You’re really in a bit of a mess here?”
“Probably just the hangover.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

If they’re rekindling their friendship, why does he keep calling her ‘baby’? 😉 Good snippet, Iris.
That’s his pet name for her, he’s always called her that, so he means well. thanks Siobhan.
I think I must’ve missed a lot last week. I don’t know what trouble she’s in.
Trouble in the sense of she made a move on her best friend and is worried she ruined their wonderful friendship. Hope this makes more sense.
He seems to sense her hurt better than she does.
He’s that kind of man … I liked “writing him” 🙂 Thanks Aurora.
She’s having quite the day…after the day before was so difficult too. I’m glad he’s not giving up trying to help. Interesting story, enjoyed the snippet.
Thank you, Veronica!
Just catching up here – enjoying it so far. Is ‘vegies’ the same as veggies or is it some sort of Australian thingy I’m not familiar with? 🙂
Glad you’re enjoying the snippet so far, Karysa. Thanks. It’s an Australian thing to spell vegies with only 1 ‘g’ 🙂
Please say he crawls into bed with her. Please!!! Great snippet.
hahaha … my lips are sealed 🙂
Enjoying the story. Can’t wait to see how their relationship changes.
Thank you, Karen. Glad you’re enjoying the snippets.
Yes, I think she needs to get over the hangover before starting to think about things. He definitely is great for her, it seems like he wants to take care of her at least.
Thank you, Linda.
