I sat in my room at our family’s tattoo parlor, Forever Steel staring at the phone. I hadn’t stopped looking at the picture of this crazy, quirky, insanely beautiful blonde haired blue eyed siren that invaded the Jersey Shore a month ago.
Carly Smythe was not my type at all. She was a twenty year old student at Stanford University in California, smart as hell, and funny. The shit kicker was she was so awkwardly unaware of what any man with pulse could see, and that was that she was a damn heartbreaker with a body that made me hard the very first time I saw her.
She made me crazy, she snuck out to see me, and then avoided any sexual advances I made on her, until I finally kissed her, and I didn’t wait for an invitation either: I took those pouty little lips and made them mine.
Carly was also an avid reader of those books, you know “Mommy Porn.” So my game had to be stepped up. Who the hell am I kidding? She could see through my game immediately, and it didn’t have the same effect it did on every other girl I hooked up with. And she didn’t go running for the hills, either. I fell hard… and fast.
Abe (her cousin) knew all the shit that had gone down in my life for the past five and a half years and in order to make this work, which I wanted it to… I needed to set the record straight, put it all on the line, give her the 411, and let her decide if after everything, she still wanted to give it up to a guy like me. A tattooed, pierced, f-up, with a past that was sure to send any girl into a tail spin. She was not any girl, she was…different.
Jase left the room to grab supplies he needed for his next appointment. I sat on the table and looked around. I saw what looked like a menu sitting on the counter beside the small sink. I jumped down, grabbed it, and sat back down. It was a menu of services they offered. The tattoo prices were based on size, amount of detail, and the total number of colors used for the design.
Piercing seemed expensive I think it was only like twenty bucks to get my ears pierced but, “Oh My God!”
Jase walked in with a salad and bread. He looked at me and then the menu, he started laughing and kicked the door shut.
“You couldn’t have just told me? You let me go on and on about Prince Albert in a can!”
He set the food down and started laughing harder. I stood up and walked toward the door, opened it and walked down the hall. I heard him behind me laughing his fool head off and then he grabbed me and picked me up.
“Put me down asshole.” I’m pretty sure I whispered.
He laughed. “No way.”
“Now Jase, or so help me God!” Now I’m pretty sure I didn’t whisper. Everyone, including clients popped their heads out of the rooms and watched me struggling to get away.
“Never.” He laughed out loud and swung me around and kissed me right on the mouth in front of everyone.
“Prince Albert?” Zandor yelled out.
Jase pulled away. “Yeah.”
He pulled me into the room and shut the door.
“Let go!” I slapped him, and he made a pouty face and then laughed. “Do they think we–?” Jase laughed louder. “Seriously I’m getting pissed Jase.”
“No, Carly that’s not what they think. I told them about Prince Albert in the can, and we’ve all been laughing about it since.” Jase kissed my cheek.
“They know about me!”
“Of course they…” he stopped and looked surprised.
I crossed my arms in front of myself, “Oh please do go on.” Please, please, please!!
“They just know, Carly, okay?” He looked worried, and I didn’t want him to.
I loved how he laughed and smiled and made me feel. I liked that he felt comfortable enough to tell his family about our friendship.
“Okay.” I smiled and nodded my head.
“Okay?” he smiled back.
“Yeah.” I hugged him.
“I like you, Carly.”
“I like you back, Jase.”
~About the Author~
I am very new self published writer,and had no clue what I was getting into, still don’t—but I like it!
My imagination became apparent at age three. Sigma was my very first (imaginary) boyfriend. He lived about fifteen miles from my family’s farm. I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our snowmobiles, regardless of the season. Apparently he was very ill and “Thank God” I was able to care for him.
At eight my love for writing blossomed. My cousins and I (of course I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 and very far away from home during a scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I wanna do that!
I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped and two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Thirteen books in sixteen months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! (I would love to reference a Pink song here but I will save my inappropriateness for my books.
I enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend. I ran a small business out of my home and have recently closed my door to pursue this dream full time. I spend time writing and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets, friends, and noise ninety percent of the time. I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, books, and talking about books.
I’m very excited to share that I have recently signed with and am now represented by Marissa Corvisiero.
