Excerpt from The Best Mistake - Olivia sat at the table with Rachel, trailing her finger around the brim of her glass. Rachel peered around the corner as she tapped her foot incessantly on the wooden floor. Rachel’s brother was late. Her roommate’s unease only made her more nervous. In the four years she had known Rachel, she’d never met any of Rachel's siblings. She had seen a picture a few years ago when they had lived together in the dorms, but other than that, Rachel's family life was a mystery to her.
"I'm sure Derrick will be here soon. He always does what I ask. He just isn’t timely about it," Rachel huffed.
Olivia shuddered at the name Derrick. She knew that there were about a billion people in this city named Derrick and thought nothing of it. Still, just the name sent tingles throughout her body. Why couldn't her boyfriend turn her on like that?
"Too bad you can't wrap Marc around your finger like that," she joked, smiling.
Rachel beamed. "Who says I haven't?"
Olivia rolled her eyes. Her friend’s relationship confused her. Rachel and Marc dated on and off. She wasn't even sure Rachel knew what was going on.
"By the way,” Rachel started. “Don't mention Marc to Derrick. He gets all big brotherly and protective over me."
"It's moments like these that make me sad I'm an only child."
"True. If you had a big brother, he would have kicked Tyler to the curb by now," Rachel shot back.
Olivia shook her head. "Tyler's a decent guy."
"Key word is decent."
Olivia sighed. She still didn't understand what it was that Rachel didn't like about Tyler. She'd asked several times and had never gotten an answer—at least not a concrete one. It was probably one of those things she would never figure out. Oh well, no use dwelling over it.
She picked up her cup and sipped some of her ice water.
"Derrick," Rachel called, standing up.
Olivia followed Rachel’s gaze as she continued to drink. The water lodged in her throat, causing her to cough as she caught sight of the man walking toward them. She’d recognize those piercing blue eyes anywhere. Derrick’s cocoa hair was spiked and perfectly messy. His stubble was thick and she shuddered remembering how it had scratched her as they’d kissed. Oh crap! He is Rachel's brother. Judging by the sly smile on his face, he remembered her also. Heat flooded her cheeks and she swallowed. Now what am I going to do?
