$25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway: Blue Moon Kisses by Cindy Roland Anderson
At age twelve, Ashlee Nichols fell in love with her brother’s best friend, Beau Jacobsen. Everyone thought she was cute and that her crush was simply that…a crush. But her young heart had known he was the one, and she had planned on marrying him as soon as she was old enough. Unfortunately, when she confessed her feelings to Beau, he’d laughed, patted her on the head and told her he was flattered. Sure, Beau had been twenty-two at the time, but she knew she wouldn’t always be a little girl. Just when she turned eighteen and was finally old enough to date him, Beau joined the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan. Now, six years later, Beau is back in Mitchel Creek, Georgia for a few weeks. He’s hotter than ever…and still ten years older, something he can’t seem to get past. He still sees Ashlee as a glorified little sister…or does he?

That was all Beau needed to hear. He excused himself and made his way back to the buffet table. Several desserts were available to guests, but the pecan pie must have been popular. There was only one slice left. Just as he reached for the plate, someone else snatched the pie out from under him. “Sorry, but I got it first.” Recognizing the voice, he turned around and found Ashlee Nichols standing behind him. “That was my piece of pie,” he said, trying to sound annoyed. “Not anymore.” She took a bite and made a big production of how good it tasted. Beau watched her with amusement while taking his first real look at her in six years. He’d expected her to look exactly like Taylin, but there were subtle differences he’d never noticed before. Like the color of her eyes. They were a shade lighter, reminding him of a cove in the Mediterranean Sea he’d once vacationed at during his time abroad. Her mouth curved up, creating a slight dimple in her right cheek. Funny, Beau didn’t remember her having a dimple before. Realizing he’d been staring, he gently cleared his throat. “You better hope they have more in the kitchen.” “They don’t.” She used her fork to cut another bite and held it out toward him. “But I’m willing to share.” Beau wasn’t sure why the comment made the back of his neck feel on fire. This was Ashlee—his eyes swept over her aqua-blue colored dress that accentuated curves he didn’t remember her having—just not a teenage version of Ashlee. Whoa. Had he just checked out Chase’s little sister? Warmth flooded his chest, and he took a step away from her. “Thanks, but I need to cut back on carbs.” “Right.” She twirled the fork around and made a slow perusal of him. “What?” he said, feeling slightly off-balance under her scrutiny. “I’m just imaginin’ what it would be like to run my fingers through your hair.” Beau was grateful he had hair. He was positive the heat flushing his face would’ve made his scalp turn red too. “Leave the poor guy alone,” Chase said, coming up beside his little sister. “Where’s the fun in that?” Rubbing the back of his neck, Beau glanced at Chase and tried to regain some normalcy. “Can you believe she stole the last piece of pecan pie?” “Yes.” “Hey,” she said with a laugh, “I offered to share.” Beau watched her take another bite, an act that shouldn’t make his pulse kick up a notch.
