Excerpt from my book, Worth It

I've been blowing up the social media with the news that my contemporary romance, Worth It, is available through here. Since I already posted the link multiple times, and you can also see the teaser on the link I just posted, in this blog I'm adding a short excerpt to give you a little taste of the story.

“Mom, this is Phil,” I said.

“I know,” she said. “Barry’s dad.”

I reached back and grabbed his hand, and pulled him up next to me. “Mom, I’d like you to meet my boyfriend, Phil.”

“Oh. You’re her Phil.” She seemed to shrink a little and she put one hand on her throat.

Phil nodded. “I’m her Phil.”

I liked the way that sounded. Especially when Phil said it. I wished I got a few seconds to enjoy it.

My mom sank down onto the bottom stair. She looked confused. I couldn’t tell if she felt upset, uncomfortable, or in shock. I didn’t know what to do. I sat down beside her on the stair and put my arm around her shoulders.

“You okay?” I asked.

“It’s an unpleasant surprise.” She shook her head.

I pulled my arm back and leaned away from her. So this is how it would go.
