Ready to Run by Meika Usher
SHE SIDESTEPS FEELINGS LIKE A PRO Comic book artist Sunny Oliver is prepared for almost anything. Rabid fans? No biggie. Zombie Apocalypse? Piece of cake. Her older brother's best friend? Er…not so much. He's obnoxious. He's gross. He's…hot? Back in high school, Ben Owens made her feel invisible. But now? NOW he sees her. And the way he's looking at her has her ready to drop her walls…AND her pants. HE'S A MASTER AT DODGING COMMITMENT ER nurse Ben Owens is a one girl kinda guy. One girl a NIGHT, that is. As a rule, he doesn't get attached. Marshmallow-filled cactus Sunny Oliver is the exception to that rule. Always has been. Years ago, he made a promise to keep his distance. Breaking it could cost him, and the price is higher than he's willing to pay. But if it's such a bad idea, why does it feel SO good? BUT NEITHER CAN OUTRUN LOVE With each pizza shared and every digital zombie vanquished, Sunny and Ben rekindle the friendship they shared years ago. Only, this time, something's different. Better. Will they give in to their newfound feelings, or will past promises--and past hurt--send them running in the opposite direction?
