How far will people go to commit to each other? Mike, Laura and Dylan face their most challenging issue yet as a pleasant surprise yields unpleasant questions. Living to the beat of one’s own drummer means that if the beat is off, you don’t have another one to follow. Making it up as you go along works well — until there are lives and hearts in the balance.
Josie and Alex reach a crisis point when their thoughts and dreams for the future don’t mesh. Reality has an ugly way of rearing its head, pushing through the most ardent fantasy. Love may mean never having to say you’re sorry, but it doesn’t mean you’re always right.
How do you find permanence in a constantly-changing world? How do you find perfect love between imperfect people? It’s the journey, and not the destination, as the gang discovers in Complete We.
COULD SHE REALLY FIND THE RIGHT GUY ON THE INTERNET?
“Hot, luscious woman who can suck a golf ball through forty feet of garden hose seeks rippling-ab’d firefighter who has a tongue that thrums like a hummingbird and enjoys painting my toenails and eating Ben & Jerry’s out of the carton while watching Mad Men.”
Laura Michaels stared at the online dating site’s registration screen and frowned. That’s what she really wanted to write. Here was the truth:
“Needy, insecure, overweight twenty-six year old Business Analyst with three cats, a corporate job with pension and no debt seeks Mr. Impossible for way more than friendship and lots of ice cream. I’m desperate for some physical affection and oral sex with a guy who doesn’t view it as some sort of favor he’s granting me, and then expects to be praised like he cleaned my toilet. One night stands are better than nothing as long as you brush your teeth. So call me, maybe!”
So when hot firefighter Dylan Stanwyck responds and asks her out, it’s just too good to be true. When she searches him online and learns he offers himself up for date nights in bachelor charity auctions, she wonders if she’s on the right planet.
Because what could a guy like that see in a fat girl like her?
OR WOULD HE NOT BE WHO HE SEEMED?
Trawling through the online dating profiles isn’t Dylan’s idea of fun, but it’s been more than eighteen months since their lover, Jill, died, and Dylan and his unconventional partner, ski instructor Mike Pine, need to find a new love. While their threesome situation is more complicated than a contract from 50 Shades of Grey, at least one aspect is simple: Laura Michaels, the cute, soft blond from the online dating site, seems like a good fit for at least a first date. Soft curves, gorgeous hair, eyes that light him up from the computer alone, and a profile that makes her seem smart and interesting — he has no problems asking her out.
The problem is letting her in.
Dylan and his not-quite partner have more secrets than their unconventional romantic relationships, and this latest snafu is a mixed blessing, for both became billionaires overnight after the third in their threesome, Jill, died. With her estate finally settled and Dylan and Mike the recipient of an annual income that gives them enough to buy entire towns in the Midwest, the two were left reeling. Months after the lawyer explained their new-found fortune, Dylan still works his regular shifts at the station while Mike remains on the slopes as a ski instructor, but with a caveat; now he owns the entire resort.
But if they tell Laura everything, they risk losing a chance at a new bond…
Two problems may have one lush, ample solution as Laura meets her first billionaire on her date with Dylan, but with a stunning twist at the end…
When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores, it’s love at first flush in this hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent.
The New York Times bestselling Her Billionaires series AND the Random series continues…
As Laura struggles to understand her relationship with Mike and Dylan, her best friend Josie recommends a surprising ally: Josie’s niece, Darla (from the New York Times bestselling Random series). When Laura and Darla meet for lunch at Jeddy’s diner and are served by wise-cracking waitress Madge, what was supposed to be a moment of connection for two very unique women turns into a rollicking screwball scene.
Turnabout is fair play: Mike and Dylan meet with Joe and Trevor (also from the Random series) for the least comfortable conversation ever. While all the guys bond and spar, for Mike and Dylan it’s like looking back in time…and maybe the past has a few surprises they didn’t see coming.
It’s one thing to feel unique, but it’s quite another to feel lonely. The gang learns that being connected means being vulnerable…with unexpected results.
Readers who love Darla, Trevor and Joe from the Random series AND Laura, Mike, Dylan Alex and Josie are in for a treat as everyone meets at Jeddy’s Diner and Madge serves up one heck of a lunch…
