Let’s get a sneak peek into one of
these great stories!
5 random facts:
-Cami is the proud
mother of four future and present lacrosse stars.
-Cami has run
amputated three of her fingers (two were stitched back on and aren't too
horrific looking). Though she wouldn't recommend amputation, it is a great
conversation starter with four-year olds.
-Cami has milked a
cow with her bare hands.
-When Cami met her husband, he asked her friend to,
"Introduce me to my wife." She laughed and hasn't stopped laughing

Drew ended the
call, put his phone in his suit pocket, and spun to face her. “Chels?”
know if she was in a daydream or real life. The warm look in Drew’s eyes and
excitement in his voice sent quivers throughout her body. It wasn’t a dream
because he didn’t lift her off the ground and kiss her passionately, but the
lingering hug he gave her was worth writing lengthy journal entries about.
“What are you
doing in town?” Chelsea asked.
“What are you
doing shopping?” Drew asked at the same time.
They both laughed
awkwardly. Kiera arched an eyebrow and turned back to her office. “See you two
“Bye,” they both
said then stared at each other again.
Chelsea broke the
moment, turning and walking toward the center of the store. Drew fell into step
beside her. She nudged his bicep with her shoulder, he was one of the few men
who made her feel short. “I haven’t seen you in six years and all you can ask
is what am I doing shopping?”
Drew chuckled and
she just had to look again. His throaty chuckle was still the same, maybe a
little deeper. His brown sugar eyes and wavy dark hair hadn’t changed much, but
his face had matured, if possible he was even more handsome than her fantasies
about him, and oh, those lips, those perfectly sculpted lips. She withheld a
sigh. If only he spent half as much thought on her as she did on him. Men never
think that hard about their buddies and since Chelsea could outscore Drew on
the court, the only time he probably spent thinking about her was when he
strategized ways to get around her defense.
Drew turned to
her, taking one of her hands in his. “You look great, Chels.”
A jolt of warmth
raced through her body. She inhaled quickly and his spicy cologne messed with
her brain waves. She leaned toward him before her good sense caught up with her
hormones. It was a wonder that he didn’t seem at all affected by the connection
because it was strong enough to wipe out a power grid. Wait, this was Drew. Of
course he wasn’t affected by the connection, he thought of her as a little
sister. No, that wasn’t quite right. He’d have to admit both of her chromosomes
were X to think of her as a sister.
