Prognosis: Beautifully Done
Asher Craig drives fast, flies high, and screws hard. But make no mistake, he’s a gentleman.
He learned way too young that we’re all on borrowed time. Fair or unfair, you only get one ride. He vows to live for the moment because it’s the only time he owns. The past is beyond his control and the future may not exist. With his only loyalties being his family, he thrives for that edge where plunging over is always in the realm of possibility.
When a beautiful familiar face tilts his axis, he re-examines everything and realizes that second chances are overrated and a lifetime of firsts are irreplaceable. In the end, it’s not her medical degree but his trust that needs to prove that the ride together is worth it ... until it’s Beautifully Done.
***Author's note*** This can be read as a stand alone novel, however, it does contain spoilers from Beautifully Awake. We recommend reading Chase and Lili's story first.
It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know. So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).
When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school. Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
We sat silent while he fetched my bottle. “So what about you?” She sounded a tad more
“What about me?”
Her iPhone whistled with a new text. She tapped the power button, quickly blackening
the screen, before she even had a chance to read the message. Clearly, I was not invited to
eavesdrop. Thoughts of someone else’s sexting was a definite mood killer anyway. She dropped
the phone in her bag and nailed me with her big cinnamon eyes. “Sorry. Work.” Yeah right.
“No hidden ink? You all tatted up under this muscley situation you have going on?” She
waved her hands up and down the length of my body. Somehow the tension from moments ago
vanished and now the conversation was about me. Shit. How a woman could so brilliantly avoid
a topic and complete a one-eighty boggled my mind. But I didn’t mind her acknowledging my
body. That had to be a good sign, right? “I pegg you for something completely over the top to get
your lady friends all hot and bothered?”
I shook my head for more than one reason. “I don’t need any help from a tat for that.” I
loved that she blushed and tried to play it off hiding behind her clear glass.
“Don’t blush, all you have to do is ask and you are more than welcome to check out-” I
copied her hand motion down my front. “My situation.” I smirked and took a pull from my beer.
Her attempt at a repulsed expression was hilarious. Hey, she started it.
“No you don’t.”
“True.” She smiled. Score.
