Most Likely To Succeed - First Look!

In just 17 days, Most Likely To Succeed is going to be released from Carina Press. The first novella in the Girls Most Likely To trilogy, Most Likely To Succeed is the story of Kelsey Moore, a hometown girl who feels like she hasn't lived up to her potential, and Nathan Barrow, her high school crush who's gone on to great things since graduation. Here's a quick peek at the book:

Book one in The Girls Most Likely to…

Ten years after being voted Most Likely to Succeed, Kelsey Moore is still living in her hometown, still working in her family's flower shop, and too embarrassed to attend her high school reunion. Only the chance to reconnect with her study buddy—and secret crush—Nathan Barrow tempts her to go.

Nathan isn't sure why he came back for the reunion after spending the past decade working abroad. But when he runs into his former lab partner, Kelsey, he's sure glad he did. The chemistry between them is as potent as ever, and when she offers him a weekend of wild, no-strings-attached sex, Nathan knows he'd be a fool to say no.

Nathan can't be tied to one place for long. But the more time they spend together—in and out of bed—the more Kelsey wonders if their reunion could become something more permanent. That is, if Nathan is still interested when he finds out she's been less than honest with him about her life since graduation…


Kelsey shifted the flower arrangement in her arms and sighed. The last thing she needed today was an emergency run over to the hotel, especially since she’d already agreed to take the weekend off for the reunion.

But Tess had wheedled, and begged, and probably would have batted her eyelashes if they’d been on Skype, so she’d caved.

Besides, Tess hardly ever asked for anything. Made it damn near impossible to say no to her when she did have a favor to ask.

Twice in one week, in fact.
Nancy, as always busy behind the counter, smiled as Kelsey entered the hotel. “Tess said to just go ahead and bring it up to room 417.”

Kelsey nodded and headed for the elevator. She had no idea why Tess thought the suite needed a new flower arrangement, but she’d been insistent.

Must be someone pretty special staying there, too, since Tess had ordered their largest display.

The elevator doors opened and Kelsey walked down the hall to room 417. Once there, she shifted the vase to one arm so she could knock.

There was no response, so she knocked again, wondering if she was going to need to head back downstairs to get a passkey. Before she could turn to go, though, the door opened.

And so did her mouth, her jaw dropping almost to the floor.
Because Nathan Barrow was standing in the doorway.
Wearing nothing but a towel wrapped around his waist.
