ABOUT THE BOOK:
Four couples take a chance on love – a cop and a rec director, surrounded by a swimming pool of special needs kids; a corporate troubleshooter and one of his prime suspects, trying to unravel threats and lies before a business is ruined and someone gets hurt; a radio personality versus his alter ego, and the girl who might love them both; and the office good girl, ready to cave under nasty office politics, rescued by the new guy at work, who comes to her door because of a nasty trick played on them both. From summer to fall to the holidays, love blooms in Tabor Heights.
"It's just the uniform. You don't know anything about the guy inside the uniform. What if he's completely different in trunks, in the pool? What if he really doesn't like kids, it's a routine when he does the DARE program?" she muttered, and wished she had chosen ice cream for lunch. All that milk and sugar would have put her into a semi-coma for the afternoon and she wouldn't be panicking like this. "What were you doing, asking him to help with the swimming, just to spend more time with him? Do you really want a guy who can be caught by a bathing suit and glitter?" Trina swallowed hard to fight the flip-flop of sensations in her gut and chest. First a falling, heavy feeling that made it hard to breathe, then a butterfly, giddy trembling that stole her breath.
Either way, her brain was starved for oxygen.
"Breathe, you scheming vixen," she muttered, and burst out laughing in the middle of inhaling, so she almost collapsed and slid off her chair. "Okay," she scolded herself after she got her breath and her seat back. "You've been manufacturing reasons for months to be around Mike, to talk to him. Todd James just happens to be part of the package deal. Fine. He's a jerk and I don't know what Patty sees in him, but fine ¿ but at least he's a helpful jerk, even if he does half the things I really want Mike to do, because Patty is there and he wants to make points with her and... I know he doesn't like me, but maybe if I ask him to stop being so helpful and leave it all for Mike to do?"
