Tell Me A Secret - #FallingIntoLove Romance by Ann Everett


Jace Sloan has it all. He's smoking hot, a college football star with a storybook family, and he's never met a woman he couldn't charm. He's also never met one who makes him want to be a better man...until he meets Maggie. Now, this self-proclaimed geek with wild red hair and the greenest eyes he's ever seen has him thinking all kinds of crazy thoughts. Like settling down and being a one-woman man. 
Maggie Fielding is anything but Jace's type. For starters, her IQ is bigger than her chest size. But Jace is panty melting hot, and she's having a hard time remembering that he’s bad news. If only she could stop telling him her secrets, because her answers to his questions just might have both of them falling in love for the first time.


Maggie sat across from Sarah in their sunny kitchen, forked a piece of blueberry crumb cake and tried to devise a plan. When Jace suggested meeting at his parents’ house, he’d caught her off guard, but now after more thought, she was more determined than ever to end the arrangement.  Of course, the too many interruptions excuse wouldn’t work anymore and she couldn’t tell him the real reason.  He was a player in more than football. He was charming. Too charming. She knew his variety well, because she’d watched plenty of charismatic men use her mother. Maggie swore to never let that happen to her.
“So what do you plan to tell Jace?” Sarah asked.
 “What if I claim I’m too busy?” She leaned forward, chin in hand, and hoped her friend agreed. “It’s true, I am busy.”
Sarah picked up a stray berry and popped it into her mouth. “You know what your problem is?”
“What?” She folded her arms and several frizzy curls fell into her face. Sarah pushed a sleek blond strand behind her ear and Maggie regarded her with envy, but then remembered Jace’s remark. You have beautiful hair. When he’d said it, her heart had fluttered. What was up with that?
“You are so far out of your element. You have no first-hand experience with someone like him and considering your mother’s parade of dysfunctional relationships, getting involved with the same kind of guy isn’t such a hot idea. The minute you googled him and saw how gorgeous he was, you should have bowed out.”
“His looks have nothing to do with it.” Her throat tightened with the lie. Just because she had an IQ greater than her bust size didn’t stop her from appreciating a handsome man. She was human after all.
“Not now. But at some point, you’ll fall under his spell. You have book sense, but you don’t have any boy sense.”
Sarah’s words cut deep. Maggie had spent a lifetime of feeling unimportant while her mother had gotten so wrapped up in men like Jace, she’d forgotten she had a daughter. No, Maggie decided. Regardless of how beautiful he was, or the fact she was beginning to like him, Sarah’s advice was sound. Maggie couldn’t risk involvement. “Well, I’m ending it tonight, so no worries.”
