Save the Date by Susan Hatler {Excerpt+Giveaway}

Blurb for Save the Date:

Kristen swears off men, but temptation swoops in when her sexy friend Ethan starts flirting with her.

Kristen knows men hide things. Case in point, her last boyfriend turned out to be married. Just like anyone else, Kristen is devastated. However, since Kristen evaluates people for a living, her ex’s duplicity has her searching for a new career as well as swearing off men.

Touring history museums with her sexy friend Ethan doesn’t count, because he has a girlfriend, and has only shown friendly interest in Kristen. He even helps with her career counseling tasks. Although Kristen has a secret crush on Ethan, spending time with him is safe. Until she discovers he’s actually single. Gasp. And now he’s flirting with her, too.

Suddenly, Ethan is way too dangerous. Not to mention tempting. Sure, he seems like sixty shades of perfect, but how’s a girl with bad judgment supposed to detect what skeletons he has in his closet?



His eyes captured mine, and my breath caught in my throat. He had that intense and passionate look he gets when he's completely focused, except, this time, it was on me. Held captive in his gaze, my worries faded away and the only thing occupying my mind was Ethan. The air thickened between us, and I felt an emotional cord pulling me toward him.

Suddenly, an elderly couple pushed up next to us, their loud voices bringing the world around me back into focus. Everything seemed messy and difficult again.

“I'm fine, Ethan. But thanks for asking.” I quickly stepped away from him, and turned my attention to the next exhibit. When I felt him come up beside me, my heart pounded against my chest in long, steady beats.

He leaned toward my ear. “I have something I want to show you.”

“Oh, really?” My mind zipped to all kinds of inappropriate images.

The corners of his mouth lifted. “It's a huge secret I've never shown anyone before.”

Okay, unless Ethan was a virgin, we were definitely thinking of different things. “Tell me.”

He turned so we were facing each other, his eyes sizzling with excitement. “First, you have to promise never to tell another living soul about this.”

Talk about piquing my curiosity.

“I promise,” I said, glancing at his pockets, which seemed empty. “Where is it?”

With a mysterious smile, he clasped his hand around mine, and led me toward the exit. “My place.”

I gulped. His place?

This was so not a good idea.

Unable to resist, I hurried along beside him.
