I mean, what was I supposed to do? My brother and I had considerably different interests, so we weren’t actually hanging out. Austin and Miles were shy and I was a full-blown social butterfly. While they played video games, I was always with my girlfriends. Going to dances. Partying. Fooling around with hot guys. 

Anything to fill the void after my pageant life ended.

For years, it was all I knew. From the time I was a little girl until I turned fifteen, Mom and I traveled all over the country so I could compete. From the Washington State Cinderella Pageant to the Universal Royalty Pageants in Austin, Texas, I was on track to level up to feeder pageants into Miss Teen USA. Then…I had to quit.

I learned a lot during those years. How to speak in the presence of a crowd. How to take criticism like a champ. Organization. Confidence. Poise. Skills that came in handy for a relatively pain-free high school experience. Also, excellent training to deal with assholes like Austin, a.k.a. Mr. Judgypants.

I swear, if he and Miles weren’t business partners, I’d give him a piece of my mind. How he treats me is so out of line but I’m not going break. Or tattle to my brother. Miles went out of his way to help me get through this tough, scary time. My salary is excellent and the experience I gain here will help my career in the long run.

I’ll simply have to deal with an emotionally stunted jerkwad who despises me for no reason. No matter how nice I am to him, he seems to have made up his mind that I suck, which is annoying, but whatever.

As much as I’d like to avoid him, unfortunately, I’ve got to put up with his cranky ass for a bit. I’m in charge of Hungry Llama’s three-day corporate retreat at Crystal Mountain—which is precisely five days from now. I plan on knocking it of the park because no one can throw together an event better than me. But it’s no small feat to pull this off. I hope he appreciates the amount of effort it’s taking.

Who am I kidding. He’s going to give me all kinds of grief about the budget, which I need his sign-off on. Might as well get the unpleasantries over with.

As I approach his glass-walled office, I can see him talking to his computer monitor, which means he’s on a call. With a noon deadline looming to provide proof of payment to the venue, I have no choice but to wait. Oh well, it’s an outstanding opportunity to covertly observe him for a few uninterrupted minutes while he’s busy. 

I mean, checking out grown-up Austin is no hardship. He’s incredibly easy on the eyes. No, that’s underselling him. He’s devastatingly handsome and takes excellent care of himself. It’s definitely hard not to stare. The transformation from awkward teenager to gorgeous, confident man is quite something to behold. 

His edgy drop-fade haircut is hot, hot, hot, I love how he leaves it long and textured on top. If he weren’t such a dick, he’d check off every physical characteristic category on my list. Good hair—check. Square jaw with ever-present stubble—check. Solid, buff physique—check. Strong, capable hands with tidy, clean nails—check. Manly cologne used sparingly—check, check, check.
