For Lexi, dodging her roommates’ attempt to land her the guy of her dreams isn’t easy, especially since those roommates are goofball Travis and Sexy-as-sin Nathan.

Now Lexi must decide if it’s worth it to pretend not to crave the love of her life, knowing, in the end, it could destroy what they already have, or keep on fooling everyone.
About Kennedy Kelly
I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO where I grew up with four older brothers. I now reside in Overland Park, Kansas. I’d always loved to write as a child. My teachers would call home not because I was in trouble but because I had a creative imagination and they wanted my parents to know about the crazy stories I was writing. I’ve always been a hard worker. I started working with my family’s company when I was 15 and still haven’t stopped. I am a wife, mother of two, hold down a full time job and am now trying to be an indie author. I have a passion for reading and before I started writing I could be found with a Kindle in my hand morning, noon and night. I’m a picky reader so it’s hard to please me but I feel like I have a keen eye for a good book.

“Alright, you two, how do I look?” I sashayed around them turning from side to side.
“You look great, but your ass is hanging out of the back.” Travis said and laughed, and I could have sworn that I heard Nathan growl.
“Shit! Will one of you zip me up, please?” I looked between the two of them.
Nathan quickly got to his feet and came up behind me. He placed his hand on my hip and gripped it, then ever so slowly he started zipping up my dress. He was so close I could feel his breath whispered against my skin, and I shivered at the contact. Just the one touch from him did funny things to my body. I craved him so much.
“Thanks.” I looked over my shoulder at him and saw him staring at my ass ogling me.
“Why don’t you stay with me tonight?” He said softly into my ear his breath tantalizing every nerve of my body. My panties flooded, and my nipples turned to hardened pebbles.
“Nathan.” My words came out barely above a whisper.
There was a knock on the door, and it quickly broke up our moment.
“I’ll get it,” Travis said as he climbed off the couch and headed to the door.
“Be nice.” I semi shouted and then looked back at Nathan. “You better be nice as well.” I pointed my finger at him.
“I’ll do my best.”
“Hi, I’m Bob you two must be the roommates?” Bob, my date, greeted everyone.
Travis began to laugh. Like a full on belly laugh. I started to crack up too.
Apparently, B.O.B. and Bob wasn’t lost on him. Imagine the irony. “Your name is really Bob?” Travis asked in between his fit of laughter. He looked at me. “That’s good Lex. Really good.”
I glanced over at Nathan to notice he wasn’t’ affected with the laughing bug. No, he had his arms crossed and his eyes narrowed. It was obvious to me that he was sizing up Bob. He came over to me. “Lex, can I talk to you for a minute?” He grabbed my arm, and we walked into the kitchen. “What are you doing with this guy? He’s not the one for you.”
“Then who is the one for me?” I narrowed my eyes at him. “Tell me. Give me a good reason to stay?”
He looked away and blew out a breath. It was like he was teetering on the edge not sure exactly what he wanted to do. He didn’t want me, but he didn’t want me for anyone else. It was mind boggling and very frustrating.
“Hey you guys, dildo out there is getting antsy and I’m all out of jokes at the moment.”
“Did you just call my date dildo?” It was funny, but I wasn’t laughing.
“Yeah you know dildo, B.O.B., vibrator. It’s all the same.” He started laughing again. “But I want you to know that if I had it my way you would be staying home with me.” He winked at me. Nathan didn’t growl or say anything which shocked me a bit.
