The morning after Grant had kissed me in the pool, he was gone. The way he’d acted after kissing me had been strange. I wasn’t sure what was wrong or if he had just regretted it and didn’t know how to get away from me. Waking up the next morning and Grant not being anywhere around had answered that question.
Dad was also gone. He hadn’t come home from his latest party binge but then I wasn’t surprised by that. Grant’s running off had hurt me. I hated that I felt anything for him. Kissing him had been a mistake. I wasn’t his type. I never wanted to be his type. Nan was not someone a sane person would desire to be.
Locking myself up in my room to read didn’t sound as appealing as it had before Grant. Instead I threw myself into tennis and swimming. I pushed all thoughts of Grant’s face out of my mind the best that I could. Someone should put a warning label on his lips. Beware don’t touch. They’re hard to forget.
Day three after Grant had disappeared I was outside swimming. Today I had successfully managed to push all Grant thoughts to the back of my mind. So when my head broke the water to find Grant Carter standing there looking down at me I wasn’t sure if I was imagining things or if he was really there.
I pushed my wet hair back and wiped the water from my eyes. Then I opened them again and there he stood. Still there.
“Hey,” he said with his sexy grin. I wanted to hurl something at him to make that smile go away. It needed a warning label too.
I wasn’t in the mood to talk to him. “Nan isn’t here,” I replied. She hadn’t been back since she’d left for Rosemary the last time. I was sure that was where Grant had run off to as well. He had gone to find her. Like he always did.
“Yeah, I know,” he replied.
I really should go back to swimming and ignore him. It was the smart thing to do. But then he could possibly take that as an invite to join me. “What do you need?” I asked in the most annoyed tone I could muster.
“I came to see you. It seems once a guy kisses you that you’re hard to forget,” he replied.
Not what I had been expecting. I swallowed the nervous knot in my throat. I would cave and forgive him too easily if he started saying things like that. Where had my backbone gone? I used to be stronger than this.
“You’re mad because I left,” he said.
I thought about replying and changed my mind. That would only give him more power. He didn’t need to know he affected me at all.
“It was a jackass thing to do. But you scared me. I like to flirt with beautiful girls but I don’t handle it well when one simple kiss makes my fucking head spin. You make me want things and feel a way I’m not ready for.”
I was expecting a lame “I’m sorry” not that. “Oh,” was the only thing I could come up with to say. What did it mean exactly that our kiss made his head spin? Was that a good thing? It sounded like it… maybe.
Grant ran a hand through his long unruly hair and let out a frustrated sigh. “I shouldn’t have left you without an explanation. It was unfair and I was only thinking of myself. I’m good at that. I just… what can I do to get you to forgive me?”
He still wasn’t asking for forgiveness. He was asking how to get forgiveness. Had anyone ever asked me how to get forgiveness before? How… unique.
Excited for Grant's story? Missing your fix from the great town of Rosemary? Well junkies, I have for you an unedited teaser, just a little something from Abbi to keep us sane.
Damn this teaser is scorching yo. Mans is warning you right now yeah, open a window, get a fan, a glass of water, hell whatever 'cause yous is gonna need something to cool you down after this.
“Rush,” she whispered leaning back in the chair. “We shouldn’t be gone long. We have company.” I wish they’d all f*cking leave. “I won’t take long. I promise. I just need to take care of a little matter,” I replied and ran my finger over the wet spot on her panties.
My boy Rush is slowly killing me. June 10th can't come fast enough, you get me? Mans is close to spontaneously combusting blad.
Yo minions, you cool yeah? Aite, listen yeah. Mans has got another boomtastic teaser for you. Aint got long till the release, mans is bare excited like. Yo check it:
“This is just… wow,” Blaire said walking in behind me. She’d been stopping and taking in the place since we’d walked in the front door. Luckily Nan and Kiro hadn’t been here to greet us. I wanted time to get Blaire settled in. The plane ride had been long and I could see the exhaustion on her face.
Miss Glines is almost done with Forever Too Far, and as a treat she has given us another short but sweet teaser...
“You nervous?’ Grant asked.
Ahh the wait seems to go on, and on, and on, and on.....

"Grant and Nan have had a thing for a while now. Nan finally screwed things up for the last time and it's over. Rush didn't know about it." My mouth dropped open as Dean's words sank in. Grant and Nan? Seriously? "Shocked the hell out of me too. Didn't think that boy was stupid. Guess he learned the hard way just cause it's pretty doesn't mean it shines."
Kiro was shirtless and swinging his tattooed arms around with a cigarette between his fingers and a bottle of rum in his other hand. “What the ever loving f*ck is your problem? Hell, you got momma issues then go bitch at mother f*cking Georgianna. Why am I the one being dealt this crazy shit?” Kiro was yelling at Nan when I walked into the game room. A pair of black lace panties were on the pool table but the female I’d left him with a few hours earlier was nowhere to be seen. Small miracles.
And last but not least Teaser #5
The night breeze was cold now. I immediately shivered and Rush stopped and wrapped his arms around me. “We need to go to the house. I’m not going to make her stand out here and talk. It’s too damn cold.” Rush told his father.
In case ya didn't already know, release date has been pushed up to June 10th, how sick is that? Mans is bare excited like, ya feel me. Word to your mother.
Abbi seriously rocks! We have a wittle snippet from a scene where Rush is talking to his dad, I'm saying no more...
“The first night she walked into my house, I was instantly attracted to her. That part was easy. But then I got to know her. She wasn’t like any other girl I’d ever known. She was so determined when she should have been beat down. Her life had given her shit and she was fighting to live. She wasn’t going to back down or give up. I admired her. Then I got a taste and I was sunk. She’s everything I want to be.”
If Rush was real and here right now...
Oh the saints! Today is truely a blessed day! We have our first sneak peak teaser into the the final installment of the Too Far series! Abbi darling, you are a goddess! And we your humble followers, thank you!
Rush’s mouth trailed kisses down my neck as the shower spray fell from above our heads like it was raining. I wanted one of these showerheads in our house. Both of Rush’s hands slipped around my waist and covered my stomach. He had a hard time keeping his hands off my belly these days. There was no mistaking that I was pregnant now. It was as if Rush needed to stake his claim regularly. If he wasn’t so dang cute when it came to protecting me it would get on my nerves.
The LAST one before the official release! Can you feel the excitement?!
“This is what you want?” I finally asked.
