Wrecked Excerpt # 2 and an ARC Giveaway!

Hey everyone! Wrecked releases in less than four weeks! Here's another excerpt, and be sure to enter below to win an ARC (Print-US/Canada or e-ARC International)!

 “Are you sure I’m not dead?” She was wearing scrubs, but there was no way I’d be lucky enough to get a nurse that looked like her. Knowing my luck, mine would be an overweight 70-year-old man.
She smiled again. “You’re not dead. You could have been. You’re very lucky.”
“Yes, I am.” I meant having her as my nurse. I think she got it because she blushed a little. It looked adorable on her pale cheeks.
“Would you like me to call your family? I wasn’t expecting you to wake up so soon. The medication wore off faster than anticipated.”
“My family? Have they been here?”
She looked at me strangely. “Of course.”
“Just my parents…”
“Your parents, and your brother and his wife.”
“Ben and Molly were here?” I was surprised they’d bother after what I did.
“I practically had to kick them out.” She looked at me for a moment before continuing. “They care about you a lot.”
“What time is it?” I couldn’t handle thinking about how pissed Ben had to be. How disappointed my parents would be. Obviously I needed to see them, but I wasn’t ready yet.
She glanced at her watch and then back to me. “It’s five-thirty a.m.”
“And you’re still working? Or did you just get here?”
“You were right the first time. I prefer working nights actually.”
“When do you think they’ll get here?” I figured she’d know I meant my family.
She fidgeted with the button on her sweater. “My guess is they’ll be here by seven.”
“Okay, that gives us an hour and a half.”
“Gives us an hour and a half for what?”
I gave her my best grin. “To get to know each other.”
“I’m glad to see you still have a sense of humor. It means you’re doing all right.”
“Who says I was joking?” I tried to wink at her, but it didn’t work.

  1. It is such a thrill to slip into someone else's world so that... if only for a few minutes... we can forget the chaos, the stress, the anxiety and everything else our own world has to offer. Romance Novels allow us to feel something extra special... to give us hope for our own lives!
