When I open my eyes, I realize I’ve been sleeping. I’m at Jaeger’s house, out on his tree swing. I was sketching the lake before I passed out.

Hanging out at Jaeger’s has become my new favorite place to work now that his home has been detoxed of all things Kate. But his property is also like a drug—I come here and instantly relax. Good for my morale, bad if I’m trying to get much work done.

I sit up and stretch.

“Finally awake?”

I peer over my shoulder to find Jaeger making his way over. “How long was I asleep?” I ask.

He scrunches his face. “Two hours.”

“Two hours! Why didn’t you wake me?”

He sits beside me and pulls my legs over his lap. “You looked so peaceful. And beautiful. Couldn’t do it.”

I lean up and wrap my arms around him. “What have you been doing while I slept?”

“Working. Got a new commission. They want to see your designs, too, so it’s good you got another sketch finished before you crashed.” He picks up the notepad resting on my lap. “This is awesome. It needs to go in the portfolio.”

Jaeger and I have become a team with work. I thought it would be great to work on a couple of projects a year with him—was hopeful that maybe one or two of his clients would be interested in our combined art. But so many people have loved the pieces we’ve done together that it’s become a full-on side business for us.

At first we made two sketch/carving combinations and showed them around. Now people simply look at the portfolio I’ve built and pick the designs they want, purchasing them exclusively for Jaeger to carve. I love working with him, and I love what I’m doing.

“You know,” he says, “you could probably quit your job at the construction company.”

“No way.” I shake my head. “I love Mr. Sallee and working with the guys. As long as they’ll have me, I’m staying there.”

He smiles and kisses my forehead. “Okay, babe. Whatever makes you happy.”

Jaeger stretches his arms above his head and yawns, a sliver of muscled belly flashing me from the bottom of his T-shirt. “I could use a nap myself.”

I slide my hand up his shirt before he has a chance to lower his arms. “Or we could do other things.” I waggle my eyebrows suggestively.

Jaeger pins me to the swing with his large body, his hands groping and tickling me. “Is that all I am, a piece of meat?”

“Totally!” I screech, giggling and fighting his fingers at the same time.

He smiles down. “I can live with that.” He kisses me, and afterward Jaeger takes his nap, wrapped in my arms.

    I’m completely in love with the series so far. I know that “New Blue” is available for iBooks users but when will it be available for Amazon users? I’m excited to read Hayden and Adam’s story. It being the last book of the series does bum me out. I was kind of hoping Tyler’s friend Phil would get at a novella of his own because he seems like an interesting character.

    • Hi Josie,

      Never fear, there is a spin off series all planned. When/if you read the final book, New Blue, you’ll meet the heroes of this next series. I’ll have the new series title up on my website soon. So far, no novella planned for Phil, but I’ll keep it in mind 🙂 Thank you for reading the Blue Series!
