An Excerpt

I settled back into my seat, my gaze on my wife’s face, watching as it went through a myriad of emotions. Happiness, sadness, awe, and even a little pain. I loved how utterly enthralled she was by the performance.
           As the ballet drew on, I began to battle the exhaustion of the day. I’d gone in early to help TJ with an engine repair, and we’d had complications trying to meet the deadline, so I was physically drained. The music lulled me, until the little pink people jumping across the stage became a blur and I fell into darkness.
           I heard a giggle and a snort and opened my eyes to blinding light, with Shelly leaning over me and poking my arm.
           “Wake up, sleepy-head,” she said softly.
           I sat up quickly and tried to look alert.
           “I wasn’t sleeping,” I saidhurriedly , trying to get my brain to catch up with what was happening as people began to stand up and file out of the theater.
           “Yes you were,” Shelly said with a stern look and her finger pointed at me. “You totally fell asleep.”
           “No,” I argued. “I just closed my eyes for a minute.
           “Try thirty minutes,” she countered, unable to control her smile any longer. “I think you snored.”
           “I did not,” I replied.
           Shit, had I fallen asleep for a half an hour?

Title: 21 Days (Time for Love #2)
Author: Bethany Lopez
Age Group: NA/Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Sasha and TJ are no strangers to enjoying sex with no strings attached, so when they decide to act on their mutual attraction, there should be no reason why they can’t apply that same philosophy to each other.
Money has never been an issue for Sasha, which made proving herself as a real estate dynamo a personal challenge she was determined to conquer. Raised in a gilded world masking neglect and disappointment, she learned not to depend on anyone, especially when it comes to love and relationships. Men are great for companionship, but she isn’t looking for anything serious.
Used to going without, TJ has worked hard to be able to support himself. When he loses his job and his home in one fell swoop, he faces relying on others for the first time in his adult life. Then Sasha steps in, offering him a place to stay until he’s back on his feet. He grudgingly agrees, but vows to be out of her guest room within 21 days.
They’ll discover that a lot can change in 21 days, especially when they decide to give the idea of “friends with benefits” a try. As each day passes, Sasha and TJ become closer than they’ve ever been. Will they be able to go back to being just friends when their days together are up, or will they allow their personal hang-ups to get in the way of what they really cherish most?

An Excerpt

“I remember that night,” Sasha said softly. “I saw you and Melody.”
“What?” I asked assuming she meant she saw us together at the bonfire.
“I had to go to the bathroom, so I went further into the field to get away from the crowd, and I saw you and Melody in the field.”
“You saw us having sex?” I asked, my dick becoming hard of its own free will.
Sasha nodded, her face reddening a bit.
“What’d you do? Run back and tell Shelly and Gaby?” I asked my voice a little hoarse.
“No…” Sasha responded, her eyes wide. “I stayed and watched.”
It felt like someone had lit a match and ignited my body. My heart started pounding and my entire body felt molten at her words.
“You watched Melody and I have sex?” That was the hottest shit I’d ever heard.
“I hadn’t had sex yet, and I was curious,” Sasha admitted. “I was going to turn and leave, but my curiosity got the better of me, and I stayed. I didn’t move until after you guys went back to the bonfire. The girls and I left soon after, I wouldn’t have been able to face you if we’d run into each other.”
I wanted to ask her if watching us had made her hot, if she’d thought about it when she touched herself, and a million other things that I would ask any other girl who admitted to watching me have sex, but I couldn’t. I knew if I crossed that line, I wouldn’t be able to stop until I had her writhing beneath me, and there would be no turning back.
Instead, I jumped up, “I’m gonna go take a shower.”
