I thought I was going to be her forever. That was until she up and left Candy Cane Key and took my broken heart right along with her.
Now she’s back and damn if those feelings aren’t still there for the girl who’s all grown up and still drives me crazy. Don’t get me wrong, I want her back and they say you’ve got to shoot your shot, but, I don’t know that I can handle another blow.
Guess I’m about to find out if she loves me, or knot.

“What are you doing?” I leaned closer to my best friend Abby and whispered through gritted teeth.
It was bad enough that I let her convince me to come with her to this Manuary charity auction. Now she was sitting here bidding, Candy Cane Key’s favorite Sherriff’s Deputy, who also happened to be my pain in the ass ex.
Deputy Ryan Albright worked the crowd of hungry local women with his piercing blue-green eyes, a charming and seemingly innocent schoolboy smile, and that sandy blondish-brown hair that I used to love running my fingers through. When he winked at someone in the front, a table of ladies that we graduated high school with whistled and placed another round of bids.
Abby’s hand went up and she doubled the last bid.
“Abby!” I hissed, suddenly wishing I was anywhere but here.
Betsy Henry, my arch-rival essentially since birth raised Abby’s bid while looking right at me with an evil smirk on her face.
Ha. If Betsy wanted a date with Ryan, she could have him. It would serve him right, too. After breaking my heart in two, Ryan absolutely deserved to suffer through a night with the likes of Betsy. Besides, it wasn’t like I was the one bidding on him.
Abby pledged another hundred dollars on top of Betsy’s bid.
What the hell was she thinking?
Did she want a date with Ryan?
There was no way.
Abby would never do that to me, nor would she do that to her boyfriend Liam. And if she was merely trying to up the bids and raise more money for charity then surely she would have placed a bid on some of the other guys, too.
I swallowed hard and my cheeks flushed when Ryan looked in our direction and shot Abby a confused glance before locking eyes with me.
“Abs. Really. That’s enough. Please, stop,” I pleaded.
“Going once. Going twice,” the auctioneer called out. “Sold to our very own Abby Monet!”
I gasped out loud.
Abby turned and looked at me with a satisfied grin. “You’re welcome.”
“What?” I croaked.
“That was all for you, bestie,” she winked. “You can thank me later.”
“Abbbbbbyyyyy. What have you done?”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Aubree Valentine began her book world career as a personal assistant for a close friend/author and as a book blogger. But, she’s been writing stories of all kinds since she was a child.
Her time spent as a personal assistant and book blogger only further fueled her love of romance and the desire to write her own happily ever afters, so with a hard shove from a friend (or four), she made the leap and officially published her very first book in 2016.
Since then Aubree has brought to life more than a dozen sexy alphas, including her beloved fan-favorite first responders from the Too Hot to Handle collection.
When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up with a good book and her fur babies. Or bringing to life some over-the-top craft project.
