A Valentine for Valerie

She has zero interest in a happily ever after. He won’t let another woman down. Too bad they can’t keep their hands off of each other.

Barney is the very definition of hot and cold. One minute he’s kissing the daylights out of me. The next minute he can’t run away fast enough. It’s enough to give a girl a complex.

But then he says he’s done farting around and we’re going to work on our relationship.

Um, excuse me? What relationship? The former military man may be the sexiest silver fox I’ve ever laid eyes on, but I’m not looking for the ‘one’.

Except when Barney touches me, I forget all about my past and why I’m not in the market for a happily ever after.
Maybe Barney can be the one to prove to me Love will OUT this Valentine’s Day.

This later in life romantic comedy features a woman who thinks relationships are for other people, a silver fox who can’t make up his dang mind about whether he wants to try for another relationship, a group of friends who think taking bets on when the two will get together will surely lead to wedding bells, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who can not only tell dirty jokes but still have skills.

A Valentine for Valerie is a standalone book in the Love will OUT romantic comedy series.

Bang. Bang. “I know you’re in there, Val. Open up.” 

Ugh. What does Barney want this time? I really don’t need to have ‘the talk’ with him again. I get it. You’re not interested. Stop knocking on my door then, will ya? 

“Valerie’s not available right now. If you leave your name and number, she’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Beep.” 

“Very funny, Trouble. Now open this door. Or I’ll open it for you.” 

Who does he think he is? The Big Bad Wolf in the “Three Little Pigs” story? The building is made of brick. Even the Big Bad Wolf can’t blow down a brick building.  

“This is your last warning.” 

Oooh, my last warning. I’m sooo scared.

“If you don’t open this door, I’m going to say everything I need to say in the hallway where everyone can watch and listen.”
