“Riles. Riles wake up!” My shoulder was being shaken so hard I thought it was going to dislocate.
“Mmm, five more minutes.” I groaned, rolling to get out of the horrible grasp.
“Riles, you don’t have five minutes! It’s 7:30. You need to get up and get back to the house!” This
time I recognized Travis as the shoulder nudging culprit.
“Trav, go away.” I threw my arm out, hitting him in the jaw.
“Doll, I can’t go away when I have to be at the house in an hour!”
Wait, did he say an hour?
I shot up, rubbing my eyes against the bright light streaming through his bedroom windows.
Shit, I had fallen asleep in his bed. Now I had to find some way to sneak back into the house, with all
the girls awake. Double shit.
“Trav, you weren’t supposed to let me fall asleep!” I whined, crawling out of bed. “How am I
supposed to get back into the house undetected?” I walked over to his windows, throwing my hair up
into a messy bun at the top of my head.
I peeked through his curtains and could see the main house just through the trees. People were
moving about throughout the house. I turned to the other window which looked directly out to the
“Nice view you have here.” My voice dripped with sarcasm. I could make out two figures drinking
coffee out on the patio.
Crap, getting back there under the radar was going to be next to impossible.
“Trav, how am I going to get back there?” Groaning, I followed him into his kitchen.
“I don’t know. I uh…” Travis glanced around the kitchen trying to come up with a plan. His eyes
landed on something and he broke into a smile. “That’s it.”
I looked down to what he was staring at and laughed. “My shoes? What genius plan did you come up
with using my shoes?”
“You went for a morning run. You can go out my back door. There is a pathway that leads to the
beach and isn’t seen from the house. You can run back up to the house on the beach. No one would
know!” He was getting super excited about this plan, except there was one major flaw.
“Travis, I don’t run. You know this!” My arms were flailing wildly around, trying to make the point.
“The old Riley Logan didn’t run. The new Riley Logan, who all these girls know, does.” He popped
that damn cocky grin on his face.
“I just want you to know, I hate you,” I mumbled, resigned to putting my shoes on. I really didn’t
have an option and he knew it. He came up with the best plan we had, and I’d have to follow through.
“If by hate, you mean love. Then yes, yes I know.” Travis led me to the back door of the house and
opened it, making sure the coast was clear.
I punched him in the arm before heading down the path to the beach.
“If I die from this thing you call running, it’s all on you,” I yelled lowly over my shoulder. Travis’
laugh followed me as I made my way down to the beach.
This was a good romance book. The friendship that Riley and Travis have is so strong that they can't even see that they have feelings for each other. I think the author did a great job building up to their new found relationship! The TV show that his mother signed them up for was true to the reality show that is on the TV today and because of that, it was easy to picture it all in your mind. I'm giving it 4 stars due to it being kind of predictable but still it is an over all good romance and cute book! I would recommend it.
