A little reminder in the last post, Addy returned home from work to find her house broken in.
DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.
This is still a WIP, so critique away.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
And, he was a school parent. A big reason to not think of him as an attractive man. Or think of him at all.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
With heat creeping up her cheeks, she figured he meant the break in and nodded.
He scratched the back of his head. “I’m not your nosy neighbour, don’t get me wrong, but I saw the police and remembered Nick telling me your family’s in Melbourne. Anything I can help you with?”
She sighed inwardly. Not only attractive, but very generous as well. Shaking her head, she replied, “I’m fine, but I appreciate your offer.”
“Will you be all right to stay here on your own? I’m sure we can organise a room at the hotel for a few nights.”
Something stirred inside. His caring nature and his generosity were so overwhelming, and possibly the stress of the previous two hours, she didn’t want to but she started to cry.
Ethan stepped even closer and gently drew her into an embrace. Common sense told her to pull away, but it was such a relief to finally be able to let out all the pent-up emotions. The tension, the fear, and her body’s betrayal at the wrong time.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

I can so relate to her. I’m perfectly calm and in control during a crisis but fall apart when it’s over.
LOL … don’t we all. Thanks for stopping by, PT.
Sweet and very natural.
Thank you, Aurora. Much appreciated.
Awww, a sweet snippet, despite the trauma she’s been through with the break-in. I really enjoyed today’s excerpt!
You’re very kind. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks, Veronica!
Her reaction is so real. I want to cry as well, and be comforted.
LOL, Andrea. Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
This is a touching and beautiful scene, the more so because their reactions, both his and hers, and so totally believable. Great job.
Wow, thank you, Ed. Really appreciate your comment.
