Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?
Rand pulled her hand away from him and he covered his smile with his hand as she looked surprised by the compliment. “I don’t remember.”
Tandy leaned on the table and the woman’s look was downright sultry. “Well it looks awesome on you.”
Jake blinked. The girl wasn’t being friendly. She was flirting...with Rand.
Rand seemed oblivious to Tandy’s interest. “I got it as a present for my birthday, and was going to take it back, but my granddaddy couldn’t find the receipt.”
Tandy actually batted her lashes. “Well that would have been a damn shame.”
Alright, it was funny at first but that was too much. “I’ll have the chicken enchiladas with two tacos.” Both women turned to stare at him and he focused all of his attention on Rand, “Honey, what do you want to eat?”
Rand looked back up at Tandy when she answered. “I’ll have a bean and cheese burrito with rice and beans.”
“Coming right up.” Tandy said. Her smiled faded when her gaze shifted to him, her expression downright hostile. This time he watched her walk away and turned back to Rand with wide eyes. “Did you see that?”
“You checking out our waitress?” Rand asked with false sweetness. It was his turn to be angry. “No, the glare she sent me.” “Right because women usually glare at you.” Jake said very patiently, “Rand honey, I have no interest in that woman and I’m telling you, I am not her type.” “How do you know that?” He leaned back in his seat and grinned. “Because it wasn’t me she was checking out.”
