That Missed Call
by Kris Francoeur
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Kat thought the night she met handsome, sexy Alex was just a dream. When he gave Kat his number, asking her to call him, she was over the moon. Sitting in her college dorm, hands shaking with anticipation, she wondered if he really was attracted to her. Was he just being nice to his best friend’s younger sister?
That moment… that call would shift Kat’s future in ways she never could have imagined.
Five years later, a chance encounter brings Alex back into Kat’s life. He makes it clear he’s attracted to her, but Kat isn’t the same naïve college girl when they first met. Struggling with her own attraction to Alex, she isn’t sure she can trust him.
All Alex wants is a future with Kat, but her hesitancy confuses and frustrates him. He knows there are shadows in her life, but nothing could change how he feels about her.
Will Kate be able to trust Alex with her heart and a devastating secret she’s sure will turn him away?
“You can deny it all you want, but something is happening between us, and you know it.”
She knew he was right, and her voice was laced with panic as she sat up and wrapped her arms around her knees protectively. “Alex, I can’t do this. I mean, I really can’t. I’m not looking for a romance, I just need a friend- nothing more.”
“I am your friend.” He stroked her arm, seeing her eyes darken. “I’m just saying you shouldn’t rule out something more. I won’t hurt you.”
“I know, but I’m just here for a few days. If anything was to happen, it would be nothing more than a fling.”
