She wants one night, he wants forever.
Waking up naked next to a good looking man is not a bad way to start the day. The problem? This hottie is Hank, her best friend’s older brother, who she’s known her entire life. Stopping after one night is the right thing to do. Being with him clearly breaks the best friend code. From his career as a Naval officer to his Boy Scout reputation, everything about him screams monogamy and commitment... two things Paisley has had enough of.
When Hank presents a “no strings attached” offer, it’s too good to be true. But, poor choices force her to confront old fears of love and loss, and Paisley has to decide if Hank is worth the risk. The alternative is never experiencing the real deal. Or far worse, settling for less.
Guest post: Five Opportunities That Should Never Be Missed In College
Hi Momo and everyone that loves her. I want to say THANKS to you all for having me on the blog today. It was great thinking back to my college days. I have a science degree and part of the curriculum was dissecting brains and cadavers. If you weren’t off meat before then you were after—at least for a while. One thing I can tell you for sure—your tattoos still look pretty decent after you’ve moved on to the afterlife (or whatever you may call it). Well, now that I’ve totally grossed you out—sorry—I’ve made sure not to do so below in the five opportunities to never miss in college. In my book, The Girl He Knows, the main character Paisley spent the tail end of college married. I’m pretty sure she regrets not having most of these experiences. But no worries, she makes up for it after college and post divorce. Feel free to post comments; I’d love to hear about some of the great things you all have experienced in college. And don’t be a stranger—come over to my site and visit sometime. ☺
- I attended a State University that is known for having the World’s Largest Student Run Pep Rally called Gator Growl. So if your university does anything remotely similar to this one, then you must go. Every year. EVERY YEAR! Buy the T-shirt. If your university doesn’t do this at all but has a sports team, go to the games. Even if you don’t like the sports. ☺ Or drive to Gainesville, Florida and try to buy tickets to Gator Growl. I promise it won’t disappoint. Unless you’re a FSU student—chances are you won’t like it too much.
- Road trip with girlfriends. Wear bikinis and drive with the windows down while listening to 80’s music. Go someplace different and fun and just hang with your friends. We used to go to Mexico Beach, which is in the panhandle of Florida. Some of my best memories are from there—with those friends who I have to this day. ☺
- Spring Break. I know parents cringe when they hear about spring break but you don’t have to go to Daytona or Myrtle Beach. There are other great places to go and it’s the road trip with your girlfriends’ that makes the experience. While there, please don’t engage in any sort of contest or film anything. These things will HAUNT you when you’re older. I promise. Combine it with #2 and it’s a win-win.
- Take a class in a field that you would never ever imagine yourself being in. Theology, Creative Writing, Nude Art, Basket Weaving—whatever. Try something different.
- Sit on a bench in the center of your campus and just watch everything. Before you know it—this will be over and the next adventure will be beginning, but you’ll want to capture this moment forever. The moment where you could sit on a bench, enjoy an iced coffee or something, read a book and people watch. This will be one of the moments that come to mind when you recall your college years. You’ll look back upon them fondly, hopefully.
