EXCERPT

Pierce had just taken a bite of his sub sandwich when he received a text from Ginny.

I like games that involve the mind but I don’t like mind games so I’m going to be honest with you. I’ve never had sex. I’m tired of waiting for the right man, and frustrated by first dates that lead nowhere. I don’t want to sit across from you in a bar or a coffee shop and try to convince you that I’m someone you want to know. I’m asking for one time with a man who is willing to love my body even if he isn’t in love with my mind. I want to experience the physical side of sex and not worry about whether or not you’ll call me the next day. If you’re interested in such an arrangement get in touch.

Sex? That’s all she was after? He liked sex as much as the next guy, but he wasn’t interested in being used, even for that. This was more Steele’s kind of thing.

Pierce took a couple bites of his sandwich, read Ginny’s message a second time. The part about finding someone to love her body even if he didn’t love her mind, made Pierce wonder if she wasn’t just frustrated with dating. He could relate. Was she really looking for more?

Steele came in from the sales room, indicated the phone in Pierce’s hand with a nod, “Ginny?”

“Yeah.”

“Have you asked her out yet?”

“She’s says she’s a virgin and doesn't want to be anymore, asked me to have sex with her.”

“Ha, that’s a good one.”

Pierce handed Steele his phone, watched his brother’s eyes widen.

“You weren’t kidding.”

“Nope.”

“I should have known you couldn't come up with something that good. You’re not that funny.”

Pierce waited, watching the wheels turn behind Steele’s eyes, knowing what was coming next.

“You know, she thinks you’re me. So really, I’m the one she made the offer to, not you.”

“And you’d be happy to give her what she wants?”

    1. Did you mean who could play Ginny in a movie? Hm, let's see. That's a tough one. She's a 'girl next door' type. Jennifer Lawrence? Shailene Woodley? I don't know.
