Title: Clementine

 

Author: R. Jean Wilson

 

Series: NA

 

Publication Date: July 27, 2013

 

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

 

Synopsis:

Addison Caldwell has her future laid out before her. She has good friends, applications in the mail for PA school, and sweaty yoga to take the edge off of her lack of love life. Just when she finds herself right where she wants to be, Addison stumbles on a familiar stranger standing before her at a coffee shop. He’s beautiful and brilliant. She’s immediately drawn to him and can’t put her finger on how she could possibly have met him before. She finds herself tumbling head first toward a man that she knows is in a league composed solely of him and a bevy of Victoria Secret Supermodels.

“Wait,” he said, reaching out to touch her hand.
The second his hand reached hers, Addison felt a warmth spread through her body. The innocent contact stopped her mid-stand and she whipped her head down. His sturdy hand was barely resting on hers, and yet it was as if he had clenched it directly onto her heart. Holy. She pulled her hand back instinctively, confused by her body’s reaction to such an innocent touch.
What the hell am I getting myself into?

EXCERPT:


“Well isn’t this surprising...” he noted quietly enough so only she could hear. He sounded so lax and tantalizing; she wanted to punch him. Ignore him. Addison did her best to swerve around him so they wouldn’t touch as she passed. Although her heels added a few inches to her 5’7’’ frame, Holden’s height and intoxicating scent still loomed over her; his presence impossible to ignore. Her group was beginning to walk down the hallway, already a couple of yards in front of her.
She suddenly felt na├»ve and self conscious about having come back to Austin and to Holden’s hospital. She’d been kidding herself by thinking she’d made the decision based on anything other than emotional ties to him; the man that fate had stepped in and forced her to say goodbye to over a year ago. She felt foolish after seeing him standing so confident in the conference room, knowing she had been the one to step into his hospital and his territory. He’s the one who left in the middle of the night leaving a note saying he hadn’t “intended” to let things get as far as they had. He’s the one who had his arm around a brunette the next day when I came to say goodbye on my way out of town. He’s the one who gave up so easily after I left.
Her own pride had begun to build from the moment she’d allowed herself to wake up early that morning to get ready for this man she couldn’t seem to shake off. She felt so silly having put herself out there so obviously.
Before she had fully registered her own movements she swiveled to face him.
“I didn’t come back for you, Holden.” The words tasted bitter in her mouth as if even her taste buds knew they weren’t true. She saw what looked to be shock run across his face before he quickly recovered. The intensity in his dark eyes was the only evidence that her words had affected him at all.
