Filling In

K.A. can’t come to the blog right now. That’s because since she finally agreed to give me a story, I don’t let her write anything else.

Hi. I’m Joey. K.A. made me up because Noah in Diving In Deep needed someone to talk to about the guy he was in love with. Never mind that I’d once thought I was that guy; K.A. didn’t care that Noah broke my heart. So I helped him—I’d do anything for Noah, he’s a great guy, he just wasn’t my guy.

But seriously, I don’t know what she expected. After creating an incurable romantic with a Masters in Counseling, she should have known I would be demanding my own happily ever after.

K.A. may be my bitch for the next month or two, but she didn’t exactly give me an easy ride. When I started talking (she says whining) in her head about how I needed a hero I could fall in love with forever (instead of my current record of 18 months, six days), she came up with Aaron. Excuse me while I have to adjust my jeans just from thinking about him—thanks for that K.A.—but it’s going to be a lot of work to convince Aaron about the forever part.

Anyone who meets Aaron can tell right away that he’s an arrogant prick. And he is. I’m not denying that. A hell of a fuck, but not so much with the social skills. And I would have fucked him and then moved on, but something happened the first time he kissed me.

I know, I sound like a Disney princess. But seriously, it’s always in his kiss. I’ve slept with enough guys to know the difference between a fuck and something else, trust me. There’s that moment when you kiss and it’s more than just this is gonna be fun, it’s everything inside you singing him. Like when I’m surfing and I get up on that perfect wave. Flying on top, hanging on just enough to let it take me for a ride.

All right, so I’ve thought that him stuff before. I was good at giving Noah advice on love because I fall in it all the time. Now Aaron knows all about commitment—you should see what he’s sacrificed for his brothers and sisters—but he doesn’t believe in happy endings. At least not the kind that go on after we’ve both come so hard we can’t see. He’s kind of stubborn about the whole happiness thing. So getting him to believe in love (when I’ve got such a shaky record of it myself) is going to be a bitch.

It’s not even easy to get to tell my story, since he grabs point of view away from me all the time, the toppy bastard. If I don’t wrap this up, he’ll be here in a second.

Hey you guys, any advice? I’m thinking I’m gonna need all the help I can get.

Niiiice. I already want this book. Joey is such a doll.

I loved DIVING IN DEEP. In fact, I just posted my review on the Amazon page last week.

I wanna see more Noah and Cameron too!

Hey, Mandi, if you think my blog post is cute, you should see my ass. How else do you think I've kept Aaron coming back so far?

Jen, K.A. says thanks for the review. I say thanks for the compliment, hon. Noah and Cameron were around at the beginning. And even Noah's brother Adam made an appearance. Adam thinks Aaron's not a bad bet, but Noah doesn't like him. Maybe he's a little bit jealous? That could be kind of sweet.

But guys, where's my advice? Girls are supposed to be naturals at this relationship stuff. I can't ask my sisters. When I talk about my boyfriend (or especially if they meet him) they giggle a lot and do the whole what-a-waste sigh.

Thanks for reading!

Advice...errrrr...dunno what to tell you, Joey.

My hubby has always been a pain in the ass. Six years together and I still haven't gotten him fully trained (or housebroken *sigh*).

Maybe you should turn the tables on Aaron. Dominate him a little. Let him see *your* toppy side (grrr). Give him some time, but then if he still can't commit, play the bitch card--ultimatum, baby.

Or wouldn't it be trippy if one of your exes showed up, willing to give you the world on a silver platter?

Hmmmmmm. I'll have to think some more on this.

Jen, oooo, that would be trippy. As long as it's not Giles *shudders* That so did not end well.

I have to tell you. Something happened and man, it threw me. What if he's the one who needs me? I don't know if I can be that dependable. I mean I'm there in the crisis, but I don't have a great track record for sticking around. What if I get him housebroken and then want to set him free?

Damn, if I ever figure out what I really want, I think I'll throw myself a parade.
