I’m giving you a look at my new adult romance story today…
This is the blurb for The Missing Piece:
When Alyssa wakes up on the lawn of a local fraternity, she can’t remember what happened the previous night. A new friend and frat guy, Justin, offers to help her out. As she makes discoveries that force her to accept a different reality, she finds herself drawn to Justin for a number of reasons.
Can the biggest mistake of Aly’s life turn into the promise of new love?
And here is an excerpt and promo to tease you with.
Nausea rose in her throat and she felt as if she’d lose her breakfast at any minute. She didn’t even dance. To think she had been all over some guy she didn’t even know, it was so unreal. “I, I’m sorry. I can’t—”
She turned away and left the house. On the lawn, she tried to breathe slowly to prevent the knot from rising any further.
“Hey, you all right?” Justin was at her side in what seemed like seconds.
She shook her head.
“Can you breathe?” At her gasp, he touched her shoulder then moved a hand to her back. “Just focus on breathing. Don’t think about anything else.” After her breathing slowed, he said, “You panicked, that’s all.”
“Really. You’re a genius.”
She shrugged. “What if I did do that with him? Everything he said… none of that is like me. It doesn’t make sense.”
“Maybe you liked Brendan. You talked for a while.”
“I wouldn’t act like that.”
“How do you know how you would act in that situation? If you were really into someone?”
“I don’t. But I’m usually smarter. I wouldn’t just do that with anyone, someone I don’t know.”
“That makes sense, but maybe it wasn’t as bad as you think.”
“What are you saying?”
“I don’t see the problem.”
“You wouldn’t understand. You’re used to that kind of life, sleeping with utter strangers and all. Taking risks.”
He lifted a brow. “Alyssa, I only mean that I don’t understand why you’re upset. Brendan can be trusted. And he’s not the type you’re talking about. He hasn’t been with many women.”
“How can you know that?”
“He’s my friend.”
“And you’re ridiculously loyal!” When she turned away, he grabbed her arm so that she faced him. He was very close now, too close for comfort. She shivered, an odd response, but she knew it wasn’t due to fear.
“I’m not taking sides,” he said softly. “I just know him. That’s the only reason I can give to keep you from freaking out. I can assure you he’s a good guy. I can’t prove it. I just know.”
“It’s hard to know someone that well. People are surprising sometimes…”
“Maybe, but I’ve known him for a long time. He can be trusted.”
“If so, then why isn’t he here? How did I end up outside? Why can’t I remember it, or him?” She swallowed hard, fighting the power of uncertainty.
He gently cupped her face with his hands. “I don’t know. But I promise we’ll figure it out… together. Okay?”
