Fire fighter, surfer and regular Aussie hottie from Becca Lee's A Perfect Moment.
Preston’s always had a ‘thing’ for his big sister’s best friend. Watching from the sidelines, he’s just been waiting for his chance to show Ella what she’s been missing out on, over the past ten years.
Confident, cocky, yet a bit of a romantic, much to the amusement of his fire fighting pals, he’s on a mission to prove that he’s more than a good friend. He’s savvy to Ella’s need to run and hide, and he’ll do whatever it takes to stop her in her tracks, even if it’s by dragging her out to sea on his surfboard, or capturing her in a fireman’s lift.
I smiled down at her, hoping that my voice and face would make it clear how honest I was being with her. “Now, we have fun. We make love. We tell our family.” She grimaced slightly at that, but I continued, “You learn to trust me.” She made to speak, but I put my finger on her lips. “I mean really trust. I know you trust me as your friend, but I need you to trust me with your heart.” My words had her smiling and her eyes glistening. I kissed her lightly on the lips. “Then, I plan for us to spend the rest of our lives together, having you in my bed whenever I want and having fun making babies.” I expected to blanch as my words formed. Me, not her. While I’d always loved her, doted on her, I’d never considered having a family. I was too young for shit like that, but hell, with El now in my arms, all I could think about was taking her bare and hoping to hell to have some of my swimmers take, and have our baby growing in her beautiful stomach. ~ Preston, A Perfect Moment
“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”
Ella's perfect moment was taken from her in the worst possible way. Humiliated, heartbroken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.
Preston has known that he was in love with his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.
Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.
She’s already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the fire-fighter's Christmas calendar.
Expected Release Date: April 2014
About the Author
Spending the last few years near the Queensland coast, Becca is rarely out of the sea or off the beach. Dragging her long board with her and her overworked Kindle Fire, Becca enjoys her three addictions: reading, surfing and ogling surfers, one of whom is her husband of ten years.
She can still be found regularly on the beach with her family. Becca tends to leave the surfing to her boys; she's far too busy immersed in her own writing or, of course, with her head still buried in a new read.
