SNEAK PEEK: So Good by Nicola Rendell


“You want it sweet, or you want it dirty?”


There was a very real possibility that she was the worst pool player on the planet. It was unbelievable. For someone so graceful and so precise—someone who’d spend half a day perfecting the shading on the spiral on a snail’s shell, someone who made baked goods like she was a professional chemist—her pool game was absolutely fucking beyond the pale. For every shot she made, she blew at least two. Less-than-half odds, about the same as if she were blindfolded. It was pretty much a riot. But I never laughed.
Her blindfolded, though, now…there was an idea.
I gulped back my drink to try to recenter myself. She thought I wasn’t watching as she moved the cue ball a half inch to the right with her stick. I almost always let her beat me, but sometimes I couldn’t find a way to play that badly. She bent down over the rail, trying to figure out how to make a straight shot and sink the seven.
Which meant that I was standing right behind her, looking at her ass.
I grated my fingers down my stubble and tried as hard as I fucking could to ignore what was happening. Her. The feeling. The fact that my cock was responding in spite of my brain telling me not to be a douche. “Don’t think too hard.”
She did some practice passes of the stick over her finger. She shimmied her ass up farther onto the rail. I could almost see the spot where her thighs met her ass.
Yeah. I was a goner. 



On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.

Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.

But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?

It feels so good.
