Teaser Tuesday from Zoe Dawson

Today the Killer Chicks are pleased to share this teaser from author Zoe Dawson's HANDLED:

A companion novella to Groomed for Murder Going to the Dogs, #2. Your reading enjoyment would be enhanced if you've already read Groomed for Murder.

Brooke and Drew are getting married and Brooke is happy juggling all her responsibilities with her wonderful fiancé, Drew and her playful Bulldog, Boxer. She’s in her element running both Pawlish, her doggie grooming spa and Bone Appétit, her dog treat franchise.

But, even though Drew hasn’t been demanding, he’s unhappy. Whenever he brings up slowing down, she reassures him she can handle everything. But the reality is that she isn’t and their relationship is suffering. It isn’t until the honeymoon that things come to a head. Brooke is spending more time putting out fires with her businesses than she is quenching her new husband’s fire.

Will her need to handle everything cause her to lose…the only thing that matters?

Drew’s gaze zeroed in on her, and she noticed he also carried a box. A shoebox. He disappeared down the hall and came back with just the shoebox.
She was still watching his face, but he’d masked that look. Had she really seen unhappiness, or had Harper planted that idea in her head? Ron droned on in her ear, but she was focusing on her gorgeous fiancé, thinking about how horribly she’d neglected him, sick that even for a moment she’d made him unhappy.
He opened the box and she gasped. The sound made Drew smile, and it warmed her heart.
“Brooke? Have you heard a thing I said?”
“Ron, sorry. Could you repeat that last part?”
He slipped one shoe on her foot as she braced herself on his strong, muscular shoulder. When he helped her into the second shoe, he ran his warm hand up the back of her calf. She closed her eyes, her whole body throbbing at his touch. She sighed at how perfectly they fit and how Drew just knew what she wanted. “You always know what I need,” she whispered as he kissed his way up her leg, burying his face in her stomach.
“Brooke, hang up the phone,” he said, his words muffled.
“Brooke. This is a pretty sweet deal. Can we talk about this?”
Drew dropped his head. Then looked up, capturing her with his green-eyed stare. “It’s been too damn long.”
She was just about to tell Ron to call her back as her whole body tightened at the desperate need in Drew’s voice.
“Brooke, get off the goddamned phone.”
Her eyes jerked to Drew’s at his firm and commanding tone. “I’m going to take your clothes off and have my way with you, but I’m going to leave those Mary Janes on your feet.”

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
