โ€œDo you have any plans for the Fourth of July? Thereโ€™s a bonfire and barbecue on Brighton Beach with fireworks. Gen and Liam have been begging me to take them. You should meet us there if youโ€™re free,โ€ I say without giving myself a chance to change my mind. A week ago I practically balked at the idea of dinner together in public, now Iโ€™m asking him to meet us at an event most of the town probably attends.
โ€œJuly fourth? Seems random. Whatโ€™s the occasion?โ€ he asks, looking perfectly confused with a brow arched.
My mouth gapes on a gasp. โ€œUm, Americaโ€™s Independence Day? And you say you have dual citizenship!โ€
A slow smile spreads from one corner of his mouth to the other before he breaks into full-on laughter.
โ€œYou jerk!โ€ I groan and roll my eyes before reaching over and punching him in the bicep. โ€œI canโ€™t believe I fell for that.โ€
He rubs his arm, feigning actual injury, but itโ€™s only a second before weโ€™re both smiling and I realize the mood has dramatically lightened. But then, Iโ€™m starting to feel that way every time Iโ€™m around him. Whether itโ€™s been a stressful day at the gallery or Iโ€™m ready to tear my hair out because of one of my siblings, five minutes around Dominic seems to melt away the dayโ€™s stress. And Iโ€™m not sure thatโ€™s a good thing considering heโ€™s only here temporarily, and once heโ€™s gone our lives will certainly never have a reason to overlap.
โ€œI donโ€™t have plans, and Iโ€™m probably overdue for a proper American celebration.โ€
โ€œWell then letโ€™s hope Ellen and Kai invite you to celebrate because my invitation just got revoked,โ€ I counter, proud of myself for keeping a straight face.
โ€œThat so? What if I just so happen to show up at the same time and continuously bump into you guys?โ€
โ€œIโ€™d say you might be turning into a little bit of a stalker so Iโ€™m gonna have to cut you loose.โ€
โ€œJust like that, huh? Ouch.โ€
I shrug casually. โ€œSomebodyโ€™s gotta keep Franceโ€™s most eligible athlete humble.โ€
Book Description
One wrong step derailed my entire professional tennis career. Fleeing the spotlight, I head to Arbor Coveโ€”the perfect place to focus solely on my recovery.

Helping the woman who threatened me with pepper spray is the last thing I should be doing. I canโ€™t afford to be distracted by thoughts and fantasies that have nothing to do with returning to tennis and everything to do with making Tristan mine.

Especially after learning what being together could cost us both.

One word shattered my world. Because of my parentsโ€™ crimes, Iโ€™m now the sole guardian of my three siblings.

Desperate for a fresh start away from the public eye, we trade NYC for the quiet town of Arbor Cove. My only priority is putting our lives back togetherโ€”falling for a world famous athlete is not part of the plan.

Especially knowing Dominic Moreau canโ€™t be mine to keep.
