Well, if it isn’t Falcon Malone.
In the panty-dropping flesh.
My older brother’s best friend and subject of my every teenage fantasy.
He taught me how to kiss.
Then he walked away.
I tried to keep him buried in the past, but he’s been in every kiss since.
Tethering me to unattainable dreams.
Well, he might have taught me how to kiss, but now I’m going to teach him how to… well, you get the idea.
I’ll tempt fate, tantalize Falcon, and resurrect a fierce hunger between the two of us.
And then I’ll be the one to walk away.
I left my best friend’s little sister, Emory Brooks planted firmly in my past.
Or so I’d thought.
Those pink girl-next-door lips of hers belonged in our sleepy hometown where I couldn’t reach them.
I’d taught her how to kiss…specifically, how to kiss me.
Then I’d left.
She deserved better than my tattered soul.
Now she’s here. All grown up. In my neighborhood. In my pub.
And the subject of my friend’s desire.
My job…charm the ladies while my man goes for the prize.
But not when the prize is Emory. He can have anyone else…but never her.
I’m the wingman… and I’m about to go rogue.
Falcon had endured a childhood that no one should have to but the one thing he did have was his best friend and his family until he cut himself from their lives after a devastating accident. A decade later he has retired from the military and is embarking on a charter business with his two best friends and teammates when Emory, his best friend’s sister comes back into his life.
Emory was heartbroken when Falcon just let her and her parents when they needed him the most. She has recently started an event planning company with Soraya as a silent partner so trying to keep her distance proves impossible when Graham hires his company.
This story takes us on quite the emotional ride as Falcon and Emory are drawn to each as much as they try to deny it. The only way they are going to be able to have a future together is by healing from the past and their journey isn’t without its challenges, but the outcome makes it all worthwhile.
Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.
She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”
The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.
She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.
And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.
Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.
