In the Moment by Lorhainne Eckhart

What happens when you meet a man you can't take home to meet your parents?

In the moment

Author Lorhainne Eckhart returns with a brand new generation of Friessens. An engrossing big family romance series about family, commitment, hope and making a relationship work. In this Friessen Family novel, an unexpected proposition leaves a young woman tempting fate that will inevitably end in heartbreak.

She looked him straight in the eye, those blue eyes that were so intense and she wondered what they’d be able to get her to do? She was smart, level headed and not lacking in self-confidence. She loved who she was, she had a family who loved her and yet here she was sitting here discussing giving something to a man she would never consider giving to anyone.

Living on her parents’ ranch in the middle of nowhere, most people would give anything to be part of her family and have the kind of love her parents did. But Becky Friessen needed more than quiet and stability. She craved excitement, action, a spark of adventure and not letting anyone steer her into something she didn’t want to do, or living in a quiet piece of the world where nothing ever happened.

Until she meets a man who shocks her with an indecent proposal that she finds herself actually considering. He is a man she could never tell her parents about. He is a man she could never take home to meet the family.  Only fighting this insane attraction between them could have her agreeing to something that could be a one-way road to heartbreak.

Sample text:

For a second, she wasn’t sure what he was talking about, and then she remembered the hospital and their conversation, the one she didn’t think he would have remembered. She had to be just one of how many he’d seen in the ER?

“Sort of, I guess. My uncle is busy pulling strings to get me into Grays Harbor, business courses until I figure out what I want to do. This is my job for now, part time until I figure out what’s next. Spare cash and gas in my car. Kind of need a job.” She shrugged and wondered why she was explaining. Stop talking about it.

The look he gave her said so much more. It was something she’d never experienced from a man. She didn’t know if he was angry with her or what. She ran her hand over the back of her neck as he tossed the cheese into his basket and looked across the store as if it held all the answers. What an unreadable man.

“Anything else?” she said to him, tapping the side of the cooler.

“Coffee,” he said, and she lifted her hand to point to the other side of the store, aisle six. He gazed down at her, not smiling but with that same brooding look, one that confused her because it excited her and at the same time made her damn uncomfortable. “With me,” he clarified. It took a second for her to understand his meaning, since he wasn’t smiling.

“You want me to have coffee with you?” She was sure her voice squeaked as she stared into his eyes, deep blue, not warm and filled with light but everything she was sure her mother would have warned her to stay away from.

“No,” he said, “but have coffee with me anyway.”
