Teaser Tuesday! Snippet from The Billionaire's Best Friend

Teaser Tuesday! Here is another snippet from The Billionaire’s Best Friend due out in September.

Leave it? After her implication he couldn't just leave it. "Not happening. What did you mean?" Even if the best he could ever hope for with her was friendship, he needed to get past her anger first.

 Lauren unexpectedly jumped to her feet, took a few steps away and whirled around to face him. "Fine. You want to talk about the past, we'll talk You promised to write. Do you remember that too?" She took a step closer. "That day you said we'd stay in contact, but you never bothered."
His gut winced. When he'd said the words way back then he'd meant them. He'd even tried once. He picked up the phone started to dial and hung up. Unsure of just what he intended to say, Nate stood as well. "Lauren let me-"...
"Don't make up any excuses.” She'd moved closer and jabbed a finger into his shoulder. “I don't want to hear it. Besides it doesn't matter now. We've both moved on."
In one motion Nate wrapped his hand around her wrist and pulled her closer. The sudden physical contact caused his heart rate to rev like the engine of his brothers prized Corvette. “Bull shit.”
With his hand still wrapped around her wrist, she took a step away from him. "Soon you'll go back to wherever the military wants you. We may never see each other again. The past doesn't matter."
"Like I told you the other night, Lauren. I am not leaving." He focused on removing the anger from his voice.
A cynical smile formed on her face. "You left the Marines? Yeah right. They mean more to you than I ever did." The anger he'd heard before diminished but sadness took its place.
