Bossy Tony Release Day Giveaway!


Bossy Brothers: Tony features two girls falling for the wrong men and two men falling for the right girls. A family of tatted up brothers and a town filled with secrets and danger. A story of earned chances and first dates. Of coming to terms with the past and finding a way into the future. It is book six in the Bossy Brothers series and should be read after book five, Bossy Brothers: Alonzo.

Belinda Baker and I were not made for each other.
We are not soul mates, or lovers, or even frenemies.
She is the one who needed to get away.
What we had together wasn’t blind love, it was sick rage.
We were a match made in hell, it was hate at first sight, and when she walked away from me and never looked back—it was a relief.
It was bliss.
So why did I travel two thousand miles so I could be near her?
Why can’t I stop thinking about this girl I never want to see again?
Why. Am I. Here?
And what do I have to do to make her disappear for good?






“Jesus fucking Christ, Belinda!”
“Are you blind? Or deaf? Or dumb? Or what?”
I just stare at him.
Vann takes a step forward, forcing me to take a step back too. And my step is actually a step up. He points his finger at me. I swat it away.
“I’m gonna say this once, OK? Just once.”
“Say whatever the fuck you want. I don’t care what you do.”
He climbs one step. And so do I. “I like you,” he says, climbing another step. So I climb another step. “I like your filthy mouth, Belinda Baker. I like your stupid cowboy boots. I like your pink hair.” He keeps climbing the steps, so I have to keep climbing the steps. “I like the way you road-trip.”
“What?” I’m so confused.
He’s still climbing the steps and now my back is against my front door. “I like the way you wear that glitter shit on your eyelids in the summer. And the way you wear fingerless gloves in the winter even though you complain, every single day, that your fucking hands are cold. I like the way your hair smells when you show up for work and it’s still wet. I like the way you spin on your stupid stool in front of the shop cash register and glare at the giggly sorority girls like you can’t wait for them to wake up sober tomorrow and realize they just paid a hundred bucks for a My Little Mermaid tramp stamp. I like the way you bite your lip when you’re tattooing and the way you always have a smear of ink on the side of your face by the time you’re done.”
I reach up to touch my face.
“Yes, you have ink there, right now. And I love that. Because you don’t even care enough to check the mirror after you’re done with a client to notice that you always have ink smeared on your fucking face after you tattoo someone. I like the way you kick at stones when you walk down the street like you’re some troubled teen with pregnancy issues.”
“What?” I laugh.
“I like the way you bitch, and moan, and complain that no one takes you seriously. In fact, I love that no one takes you seriously, because then they’d figure out just how awesome you are, and I’m afraid you’ll actually find someone else before I can convince you that I am good for you. I want to date you, Belinda Baker. And you know what really pissed me off tonight?”
He pauses.
I become uneasy. “Am I supposed to guess?”
“I’m not mad that you fucked Tony in the alley. OK? That’s not it. I’m angry that you gave him the chance that I deserve.”
My stomach… falls. I don’t know of any other way to describe the feeling I get when I internalize those last few words of his. Except… falling. Like the world has just been yanked out from under me. Like I’m adrift in a sea of mistakes.
Because he’s absolutely right.
“No,” he says, still seething. “No.” He holds up one finger. “I’m not done. You don’t get to talk yet. I’ve been holding this in all fucking night while you laughed and joked with my goddamned brother and his stupid yoked-out army friend. Who, by the way, was leering at you the entire time.”
“He was not!”
“He so was!”
“He was lying face down, Vann!”
“I just want to say this.” He pauses again and his chest is rising and falling very quickly, like he’s really upset. And his lips are falling into a deep frown. And his face is becoming flushed with heat. “I have earned my chance, Belinda. I didn’t become your friend because I wanted to get in your pants. I didn’t get you the apprentice job because I thought we’d be good together. I didn’t drive you and Tara two thousand miles to Key West because I thought maybe you’d finally see me for what I am. I did all those things because I like you. With no expectations whatsoever. I did all those things because I enjoy you. And when we’re together, life is fun. Even when we’re running from guys called Diablo, and smuggling people on boats, and especially when we’re just hanging out doing nothing. Saying nothing. That’s my favorite time with you. Because we’re at that place now. That place where we’re comfortable. And I keep waiting for you to see how good we are. And you just”—he shakes his head—“refuse! You just refuse to even consider me. But this asshole Tony Dumas shows up out of nowhere and you give him all the considerations. You say you don’t like him—”
“I don’t!”
“You say that, but then why, Belinda? Why do you give him all the chances he hasn’t earned?”

  1. Definitely the one that got away…he actually lives near my daughter’s house so i see him a lot😥😥

    1. Well, I already married my best friend and all the others before him were never “the one that got away”, I didn’t make good choices, except the ending parts – I was pretty good at ending things when I realized how bad they were😏.

  2. Fall in love. And stay in love forever. Feel that pleasure of seeing him and feeling him and touching him…😐💙💚

  3. Definitely spend the rest of my life with my best friend, and since I’ve been marries to him for 27 years I think I’m on the right track!

  4. I would spend the rest of my life with my best friend. I am so blessed to be spending my life with my best friend now.

  5. The one who got away. Not that there is one but best friends to me doesn’t read HOT but maybe with the right one it could be.

  6. I am just about to celebrate my 27th anniversary with my best friend – can’t think of anything better!!

  7. I was about to say the same thing that Deanna Dodge said.. I would much rather be with my best friend forever.

  8. Oh how I wish I COULD spend the rest of my life with my best friend. My husband became my best friend in 1982, and I’ve missed his friendship every day since he passed away in 2015.

  9. I’d spend the rest of my life with my best friend. She’s been around through good and bad, since 1972. It’s safe to say she isn’t going anywhere.

  10. The one that got away, because I’m with him now, whereas my ex-relationship with the one-time best friend ended because we ended up not being kindred spirits after all.

  11. I’m not sure. This is a very complex question. Does the past belong in the past? Should I just focus on the present? The present. If it is meant to be the past will return when it’s time to be part of a present.

  12. I don’t have “the one who got away”, but I have an amazing best friend. So I’d spend the rest of my life with her and still look for Mr. One.

  13. The “one who got away ” I was young, he was older. He taught me so much about sex! We moved in together. He wanted to get married and start a family. I wasn’t ready yet. We then hurt each emotionally, and went our separate ways. To this day, I still think about what might have been.

  14. id rather spend the rest of my life with my best friend cause he is the one that I love we are soul mates

  15. Best friend thanks. Nothing as precious as someone who’ll stand by you. Besides if he “got away once”, the bastard’ll probably get away again.

  16. I am 58 years old and I have never been married, I thought I had found the one, but I got a son out of it. I can’t complain about that, it’s the 32 years ago that I am complaining about. DAMN, what a dry spell. My son will be 32 in June, and he says that he is never having any kids. So now you know, that is why I keep reading and plenty of batteries. LOL LOL LOL

  17. I have been married to my best friend for almost 26 years. He is still as cute today and he was the first day I saw him.

  18. I would rather spend the rest of my life with my best friend rather than ‘the one that got away’. It’s so much more appealing to end up with someone who knows you so well and loves you that much. I’m reminded of the movie, ‘When Harry Met Sally’!

  19. I’m with the one that got away and life is so sweet. We have a beautiful family but we went through alot to get here.

  20. I’m not sure , it’s a hard one to answer. They say you can’t make someone fall in love. So maybe the friend. ??

  21. I married my best friend and would not have it any other way 🙂

    However, I would love to have “the one who got away” fall for me and leave him behind. hehe!

  22. Best friend! The one that got away died and I don’t really have just 1 best friend. The guy who saved my life and is like a brother to me now is awesome though 💕

  23. The one that got away I think about from time to time as he entered the seminary at the same time I married my best friend. Funny enough the one that got away cheated on me and my best friend the love of my life for the last 26 years never has. Love him and we were blessed with 3 amazing sons.

  24. Even though it sounds romantic to catch the one who got away, I have to go with my best friend. There is a reason it didn’t work in the first place.

  25. Best friend for sure! The one that got away, got away for a reason. Plus, pretty happy where i am now!

  26. Considering my best friend was the one who got away, and we’ve since been struggling to heal all of those past wounds together, while simultaneously trying to knit both our lives together into one, I’m going to say it’s a bit of both. But honestly, if I lost him our strong connection in any form again, it would be the worst thing to have to go through all over again. Reconnecting with him and his family has been one of the things that is helping me heal wounds I didn’t think possible. They are more my family than sometimes my own is, and i love them all so very much. 😘💕💋

  27. I have been with my best friend 35 years and married for 30,I wouldn’t trade him for anything.

  28. I don’t know why my previous comment didn’t show up here 🙁 hopefully this one goes through 🙂

    I would choose to spend the rest of my life with my best friend <3

Leave a comment! I love them!
