Excerpt I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done.“It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it. He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken. “Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest. I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that. “Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair. I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck. With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?” I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough? “I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes. “Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear.Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him

My Review

OH-M-FREAKIN-G!! I didn’t think anything could rival the Transcend Duet in my eyes(my love knew no bounds with Griff and Swayze )However, I really believe Jewel has done it. What a tragically tangled web she weaved with this duet. Oh my dear book friends,  I don’t think there is enough yoga or meditation I could have done in this world to give my mind preparation for the epic mindfucking it was in for. 

This book was the best of everything(book and movie genres) all at once. It was a suspense, a paranormal, the best kind of love story, a story of the strongest bonds of friendship. It was creepy and disturbingly awesome. It was the kind of book where you can be rooting for your characters at the same time you want to clobber them for being blind to what’s in front of them. This is one of those fantastic books where you literally suck in breath in outrage and your hubby or kid looks at you from across the room and goes “what the hell was that? You sounded like you were choking.”  

The truth could right the wrong of a lie, but nothing fixed the truth. His love was ugly and so was his truth.

There wasn’t a dull moment in this book, from chapter to chapter I was on the edge of my seat wondering was was around the corner for Ronin, Evie, Lila and Graham. The lies, the secrets, the manipulation. Holy shit the way everything was coming together was terrifying yet awesome. I legit couldn’t put this book down. I didn’t just read it, I savored it at the same time I devoured it. When I did have to stop to “adult” I swear I was like jonesing to get back to it. Lol 

Y’all, I am in awe at the brilliance of Jewels mind.  This is a book that is told in multiple people’s POV(all four main characters) and it never gets jumbled or confusing, the different details that spanned years in this book were so on point. I swear I went through every emotion I had while reading this book. Love, lust, happy, sad, fear, disgust, despair, utter devastation, frustration, depression, elation and I can promise you I will read this duet again. IT WAS THAT GOOD!! 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I’m officially Dead!! This particular Jewel Ann diet has emotionally slaughtered me! Going in I just was so unsure what the outcome would be so I was terrified. If you have read her books you know she ain’t scared to gut a bitch!! Lol I’m so glad I hung in there. This book was worth every tear and raised moment of BP and heart palpitations. And all the people said AMEN!🙏🏻

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Ronin and Evie we’re still hot but there was a lot of stress and struggle for them in this book. When they got on it though. Hot as ever! 🔥🧨🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- This book doesn’t end on a cliffy. Yay! Now is it a HEA for all. NO! Do I think you all will be happy ever after with the ending, Yes. You will understand this more after you read it. Sorry not sorry,  but spoilers suck!!

My Bestie’s Ex Release Blitz & Review

I can’t borrow him.

He’s not a sweater or a skirt.

He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be. 

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

My Review

Holy Sweetness Overload Batman!! I absolutely positively fell head over heels in love with Ethan and Blanca’s story. The title of this story makes it super intriguing in and of itself…I mean come on My Bestie’s Ex! We all know that’s a big NO, NO!! 


Right?! This is the first book in a new series of stand-alones called the Rooftop Crew. So here we have this gorgeously curvy Italian bombshell who meets an amazingly hot guy on the Sunday night train. He seemed perfect, the situation was like out of a movie, they had an instant connection, almost kismet. Well except for just a couple of minor details, dating faux pas if you will. Each of which alone could be deal breakers by themselves, but alas they were pulling dating deal breaker doubles.  BUT I LOVED THEM ANYWAY!!

Blanca just had a really horrible day. When she runs into an old friend, Sierra, they are able to quickly reconnect and the catastrophe that was her current situation starts to look up. She moved out of the city to the smallish suburb of Clifton Heights and quickly immersed herself into Sierra’s small group of friends know as the “Rooftop Crew.” BTW I love this crew of friends! They are FABULOUS! 

When she went home to visit her family for their standing Sunday dinner she couldn’t have prepared for the connection she would form with the hottie on the train. They were flirtatious and fun. She’s sassy and sweet and fun-loving but she sees what her brothers have found and she wants that, she can almost picture dreams of that with Ethan from the train. 

Ethan is this funny, gorgeous guy but he’s hiding big parts of his life from those around him. He won’t allow himself to get close to others. So when he walks on Monday morning to find the bombshell he was falling for on the train  is his new coworker, he knows immediately he will shut down any shot they did have at dating. 


The chemistry between these two is off the chain. They are hot, they are hilarious, their chemistry is combustible. The back and forth with these two about gives you whiplash but that’s part of what makes it so amazing. This story was the perfect blend of sweet and swoony but flaming hot and delicious. There was this magical balance of just the amount of frustration and angst I’m looking for, I call it a sweet spot.  It’s great for your soul, y’all!

It keeps you interested and engaged. There was not a dull moment in this book. I was never tempted to skip ahead. It kept me from page one and I flew through it anyway because I had to know what was happening from one page to the next. From Ethan to Blanca, to the rooftop crew, to Blanca’s brothers. You have an entire cast of secondary characters that add even more humor and charm and tons of giggles.

So you’ve been warned. If you are looking for a little bit lighter of a read with just  a little bit of frustration and angst thrown in, this is the perfect book for you! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- Ethan and Blanca are wonderful characters, they were not perfect and both had some stuff they needed to work though, but together they were great. The Rooftop crew are an amazing group (one took me longer to come around to, but imma a fan now 😉) and I love what they each bring to the story. Each person is totally unique and I can’t wait for the magic that I know will be brought in each of their stories. So start this series today!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- I’m gonna call him edible Ethan, because he is so darn delicious!! The scenes were super hot, yet sweet at the same time So pretty much perfection!! 🔥😍🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- OMG!! This is the #HappyEnding we all want lol 😍♥️😍

The Life That Mattered Blog Tour & Review

LTM - BT banner

“The wildly talented Jewel E. Ann consistency finds a way to level up. Every book she writes leaves me desperate for more! The Life That Mattered is a must-read.” – Ella James, USA Today bestselling author

The Life That Mattered, an all-new emotional and poignant novel from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!


Sex isn’t love.

Love isn’t sex.

And friendship is neither.

The son of a French Olympic skier and a Malaysian fashion designer, Ronin Alexander has lived the life of a nomad, traveling the world to find his next adventure.

Life takes a dramatic turn when he meets Evelyn, a beautiful scientist who owns a bath shop in Aspen, Colorado. They defy all the rules of relationships, falling hard and quickly in love.

Their world intertwines with Evelyn’s two best friends, the Governor and his soon-to-be wife. The four become close—very close.

When tragedy strikes, things from their pasts are unveiled—unimaginable truths and the grim realization that life will never be the same.

Jewel E. Ann steps into another dimension with this mind-bending thriller, a provocative story that pushes boundaries and tests the true meaning of love.

My Review

Y’all I’m in tears as I write this.😭 I legit don’t know how on earth I am supposed to function, how in the ever lovin’ world I am supposed to get up every day and adult until I know what happens.  Until I know how this plays out. Evelyn “Evie” and Ronin’s story will burrow into your heart ♥️ from the moment they meet and you won’t be able to let them go. EVER! 

When we first meet Evelyn she’s on a trip with her best friends Lila and Graham. They are a huge part of her life. Lila whom she has known for most of her life and Graham who she briefly dated in college for like a second before realizing they are better at being best friends. There is such a strong bond and history with them intertwined over the years. 

Ronin Alexander is this amazingly gorgeous, world traveling man, a super hero adventurer. A chance encounter over bubble tea and hot buns on his last day in Vancouver before leaving for a new job in Aspen, he meets the beautiful Evie -and later that night Lila and Graham. He knew from the first look across the table in the tea shop,  this body soap making scientist would change his life forever. But Ronin was keeping secrets from Evie. From day one he’d been hiding behind secrets and lies to protect her. What happens when the secrets and lies start to pile up? When he has to look back on every decision he’s made would he change anything? 

Evelyn’s character was phenomenal. She was so strong. She was in her mid thirties and had her crap together. She was successful and had a really cool business. She has her good friends, her parents. Then she meets this amazing man. Ronin was everything she was missing and didn’t even realize she was missing until she found him. GAH! They were nothing short of spectacular together. Every touch , every kiss, every moment they had was pure magic. I couldn’t have loved this couple more. They are perfect together. I loved their love. I love the way they view the word love. What it meant to them as a couple. You will know what I’m talking about when you read this. 

When things began changing I really started to get terrified because I remembered back to the prologue and I’m not gonna lie I’m scared y’all! I have a feeling I’m in for the big D. Yup, DEVASTATION!  I wanna beg, borrow and steal, do whatever I can to ensure everything is okay at the end of book two. Because right now I AM NOT OKAY!! 

PSA- Check on your book buddies that just finished book one y’all, because we are not okay right now. 😭We need to form a circle of friends and hug it out, let the feelings flow my sisters. 😢😭😢😭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I’m officially in AWE!! Jewel Ann’s books always do this to me! I know going in I’m gonna get an emotional beat down! ( and she served it to us with a sweet little smile on her face) This was emotional, but it was funny and hot too. It was also so happy and  swoony and frustrating. That Cliffy though! GAHHH! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Ronin was the most adorable gentleman and then Alpha  AF in the sheets, or the shower or the floor. Holy Hot Dang!Talk about moanin for Ronin! Y’all it was the hottest thing ever! 🔥😍🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- 🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪OMG!! I literally was bawling 😭 my eyes out at this cliffy. I need to know what happens like I need Air in my lungs.

ExcerptI wasn’t opposed to the occasional drunken one-night stand, but not with Evelyn. We weren’t drunk, and I wasn’t okay with an arbitrary time in the future that I may or may not see her again. “I’ll walk you to your door,” Evelyn said as she turned off her Jeep. “God …” I laughed, shaking my head. “That’s messed up. Now I feel a huge urgency to get my own vehicle. I think I’ll go tomorrow to buy one just so you don’t ever have to walk me to my door again.” She climbed out. “I don’t have to stop at your door. We don’t have to play by the rules of dating. I think we’re past that age. How old are you?” I found her hand and led her to the front door. “Thirty-five.” “I’m thirty-four. Have you ever been married?” We stopped at my door and faced each other. “No. You?” She shook her head. “The rules don’t apply once you’re past thirty.” “The rules?” Evelyn grinned. “The courting shit. The baseball game.” “The baseball game?” My head canted to the side. “Yeah. The sexual bases? First base is kissing. Second base is—” “Yes.” I fished my keys from my pocket. “I’m familiar with the bases.” “Well, I don’t know if you’re a fan of baseball or not, but I am.” I unlocked my door and motioned for her to go inside. She wet her lips and stepped into my condo without an ounce of hesitation. “You’re inviting me in. So you are a fan of baseball.” Not so much. Skiing, football (soccer), rugby, cycling, tennis … but not baseball. However, something told me Evelyn might make me a baseball fan. “Are you sure you’re living here?” She glanced around at the sparse furnishings of my two-bedroom condo. “I never stay in one place long. No need to own much. It’s just that much more to sell or move.” Books. I owned books and a place to sit and read them. My parents didn’t believe in letting Julien and I watch television while we were growing up. Julien embraced art. I embraced fiction—mysteries and sci-fi. “What do you consider not long?” She ran her fingers along the back of my leather recliner before dropping her bag to the floor and slipping off her jacket. “Three to five years is a nice stay.” I tossed my coat onto one of two barstools at my kitchen counter. “Okay. So our marriage will be short.” Her teeth trapped her full bottom lip. “Probably.” I’d dated enough women to know there existed a sequence of events that took place way before the M word should ever be discussed. I’d never reached the point of discussing the M word. Not even with my longest relationship, which lasted two years. Two years and we didn’t talk about marriage. I was out of my realm of experience with Evelyn. We joked about marriage, but who joked about that? Then there was a baseball discussion happening, and I didn’t even like baseball, but I waited with restless anticipation for Evelyn to make her point. Something told me it could be brilliant. “Kenny was a guy I dated my first year in college. He played baseball.” I could not have cared less about this Kenny guy, but he brought her back to the baseball talk, so I folded my arms over my chest, leaned against the counter, and gave her my full attention as she walked in slow circles around my furniture. A predator with calculated moves. Who was I to judge? I walked into her shop that day and basically said we needed to expedite our dating status—laid out my plans to eat dinner with her, close down bars, and sip hot chocolate. “He was a solid hitter. Always got on base, but he never hit a home run. I honestly think he lacked the confidence to go for it. His coaches told him to just get on base, so that’s what he did because that’s what you do when you’re young like that. You spend a lot of time on the bases.” Were we still talking about baseball in the literal sense? “I think once you hit your thirties, no one should judge if you just hit it out of the park your first time up to bat.” Her lips twisted as she stopped in front of me. “The goal is to hit it home. If you can do that, then why the hell not, right?” I thought I understood the metaphor. But if I was wrong, I could get thrown out of the game. “Can I get you a drink?” Evelyn shook her head. My eyes narrowed, studying her for a few seconds. “First base is fine.” She shrugged. Fuck me …

Legend Release Blitz

Title: Legend
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: M.R. Leahy
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: February 6, 2020

Far, far away, hidden on Insula Sacra—Island of the Accursed— lives a forgotten world of man and beast.

Damned by the Gods, and forced to live in everlasting darkness, they continue to fight a war that has long since been buried in time.
With each rise and fall of the cursed moon, they are reminded of all they’ve lost.
Desperate for freedom, they await the night the one true king will rise to power and free them from the curse.
The King, however, cannot rise without his Queen—both blessed with the mark of the Gods, they must end the war to save them all.
Or so the legend says…

My Review

Legend was a super quick, faster paced, retelling of the story of Tarzan and Jane. Now, here our story is a little darker and more sinister version, with a paranormal twist.  That’s the fated to be together love story of Karzan and Janey that you get. This is my first time reading this author and I thought her writing style was wonderful. 

I am really loving the Sinister Fairytales Collections series. So while Tarzan isn’t a fairytale that I cared all that much about and I had never heard to this author before , I still managed to enjoy this book. It wasn’t all that long and did keep me engaged and entertained so I flew right through it. Legend was a great addition to the Sinister Fairytales Collection. 

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- Overall this was a good read! 

🔥🔥🔥- There was a long time before the MC’s were even together , but when they finally did it was steamy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA. No cliffy!!

“They abandoned us, cursed us. An endless war, a dying race…the prophecy states that once united, the chosen one, bearing the mark of the gods, will bring forth the one true king.” Balling my hand into a fist, I turn and face the great room. “I will be that King. No matter what it takes, no matter how many people must burn to make it so, we will rise again and this time, not even the Gods will be able to stop us.”


Koyn Blog Tour & Review


A Royal Bastard’s MC Novel by K Webster Publication Date: January 21, 2020 Genres: MC Dark Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books I had it all. Family. Career. A future. Until a couple of bikers took it brutally away from me. They scarred me both inside and out, killing the man I once was. Jared Koynakov is dead and Koyn rose from the ashes. Ten years later, I live by a code that is shaped by hate, anger, and revenge. As prez, I’ve built a brotherhood of men who share the same thirst for vengeance and are loyal until the end. Together, we will find those bastards and end them. Every last one of them. All it takes is one slip, and I almost have them in my grasp. Until a pretty pageant girl, who looks far too much like my daughter, steps into the fray causing the ultimate distraction. I must choose between my revenge and being her savior. I’m one helluva biker with a taste for torture, but I’m an even better daddy…

My Review

K. Webster, I bow down to you!! This book, y’all. This incredibly dark and dirty and twisted book! Now I have read MC romances, but I have not read a tale like Koyn and Hadley’s story. EVER!

It is crazy twisted and sick and unique and I was blown away by Koyn’s ability to worm his way into my heart. There was almost two sides to Koyn. There is the Koyn of the past, before he endured the worst possible experience anyone could ever go through and then the Koyn of today. The one that lives his life with one ultimate goal, to serve up revenge on the one(s) that took everything from him. I’m not even really a fan of the “call me daddy” kinda romance books, but I totally didn’t mind it this on  AT ALL. This book was that amazing. No lie. 😍🔥😍

Hadley’s character invoked so many emotions in me. She was sassy and beautiful. Yet, she was broken and at the same time strong. She had been through unimaginable things. But she made it through and made it out. She got herself caught up in a rough and dangerous world by choice. Because it was preferable to her pampered pretty princess life with the devastatingly disgusting secrets kept behind closed doors. Doing her best to go as unnoticed as possible in the previous club won’t work for her after the events that led her to Koyn’s compound. 

I don’t want to give too much away but the push and pull between her and Koyn, Holy GAH!! He’s drawn to her because she reminds him of his daughter. She views him as anything but a father. A Dirty Daddy, Yes! Delicious!! My heart melted and broke for him at the same time. I understand why he was the way he way towards Hadley, but then when he made a decision he did, it literally gutted me along with her. 

His loyalty to his guys, his drive. It was hot. This man was broken and scarred, bit inside and out. He had a depth to him though. You could see glimpses of the man he used to be. Before he lost everything. His character was tortured and complex and I loved him. 

The guys in Koyn’s club are some of the most sick and twisted, yet they are loyal and I’m drawn to them. I want all their stories.

I just know there is some special “old ladies” out there that will bring these rough yet sinfully hot, hog driving’ men to their knees! If you think you’ve read some nasty, just wait till you take a little trip to the slaughterhouse and see the Royal Bastards MC gang serve up a side of revenge in ways that only they can. It’s crazy insane. And I Floved Ever.Single.Second!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I’m officially OBSESSED with all things RB MC . I went through all the emotions in this book. It was so full of action, suspense, angst, sex, hear, banter, blood, tears, live, loss, revenge, and redemption! I can’t wait for more with the rest of the club members stories! This book was raw and gritty and phenomenal. Grab it today! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT HELL. For as much as Koyn might have tried to avoid it happening it was inevitable. He and Hadley and he were beyond all things imaginably hot! The were explosive and forbidden and just straight up Yummy! Sexy scenes were off the charts hot! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- This has a HEA , but sets us up for the stories of other club members from other chapters from all over. I can’t wait! 😍

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book is a MC romance and does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some. It also deals with some serious and sensitive content that could be disturbing to some. Some of the scenes are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Amazon AU:





Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.





My Review


Whenever Ella Fields releases a new book I feel like I have to stop the world, shut out everyone and do nothing but devote myself to the magic that is her words until I have devoured every morsel. This book, this amazingly angsty Step-brother/Forbidden/Second Chance Romance was no exception to that rule. It was emotionally wrecking and beautiful at the same time. It broke me before it put me back together again.


Jackson and Willa were the ultimate experience of inevitable love. Everything about their journey will leave you breathless, in tears, and rooting for them to overcome all the obstacles before them. To ignore everything and everyone that could possibly stand in their way. Jackson the broody, beautiful boy that Willa isn’t supposed to love like that, but she does. Willa so sweet and gorgeous and Jackson isn’t supposed to touch her, but that didn’t stop him.


“I feel like I need you to breathe properly.”


When they’re discovered it brings a world of hurt down on them and the love they share is scandalized and made out to be wrong and vile and they are punished for it. When choices are made to protect one another it causes misunderstandings and starts a domino effect that spans years and miles between them. Can Jackson and Willa right their wrongs and find each other again or have they done irreparable damage to each other’s hearts?


“In the battle of who hurt who the most, you fucking won, Willa.”


Y’all this is a much read for fans of edge of your seat forbidden romance fans. That fear for your couple of if and when they will be found out. The heartbreaking moments when they hurt each other unknowingly. GAH!! This book and it’s frustrating “ I’m about to chuck this kindle at the wall” moments. The sensationally sexy moments between this couple that are so forbidden yet sweet, loving and delicious all at the same time. If you haven’t read Ella Fields yet you definitely want to start today. She never fails to hit you straight through the heart plowing through your poor feelings leaving you a devastated and broken mess before she perfectly pieces you back together in the end. You can count on a book hangover for days after one of her books.


My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!
⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️-This book is full of drama, angst, forbidden love and it’s a second chance/step-brother romance all in one. I loved these characters. This had everything.
🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT DOGS!! Jackson is nothing short of delicious AF!! Forbidden is just hot! That’s it!
🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA!

Like Father Like Son
I laid my husband to rest….
Scott was my world and my future. His love for me transcended the dimensions of time and space—having made provisions for me in the event of his death. He was after all in a war zone and the odds were high he may not come home. But now I can’t help but think about the new man in my life – my husband’s father.
Maguire creates a desire deep inside of me I never knew existed. This is more than lust. I keep on asking myself the same question. Have I fallen in love with him because he’s so much like my late husband or because he’s his own man? Only time will tell. 
After all, you can’t choose love, it chooses you.

“I love this place!” she yells over the loud music, asking about my time here with my son, when he was alive. “You and Scott came here, often?” she asks. 
“Yeah, many times. It has the best burgers.” 
She’s looking at the menu, her eyes big at the portion size. “You’ll have to roll me out.” Just then, the music lowers a little and we don’t have to yell at each other. When I came to pick her up tonight, she’d been crying. I’ll try to do anything to make her forget what tomorrow truly is. 
Our server comes over, kneeling, flirting with me. “You both are a beautiful couple.” Yet, her arm is all over mine.
“Um, listen, bitch, you better step back a bit,” Holland begins because the server thinks Holland is mine, yet, she’s fruitlessly flirting with me.
She smiles at Holland, too. “Oh, honey, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to overstep, as a matter of fact, I’d take you both in the mix.” My mouth falls when Holland stops to process all she’s said. “Sorry, honey, I wasn’t coming onto just your husband, I hadn’t gotten to you yet, sugar.” And she winks at Holland. “So, what would you two beautiful people like to drink?” 
After she takes our order, Holland twists her body toward me, and she’s somewhere between hysterics and anger. “Hey, wife?” I ask, going off of the server’s assumptions of us. “You got pretty territorial there,” I tease, loving it, seeing green in her actions.
“Well, she assumed we were a couple and she blatantly flirted with you so I had to stake my fictional claim.” 
“Sure, whatever you have to tell yourself.”
By the way her jaw is almost sitting on the table, she’s still a little shell-shocked. “Did that just happen?” she asks. I nod yes and she has her phone whipped out so fast. “Wait until I tell Teagan. She’s going to flip her lid. According to her, she’s the only girl who can hit on me.” Even in the absurdness of it all, I’m glad our server has given Holland something worth laughing about. She surely will need it to get through tomorrow.
