So excited for a new Elouise East book on Thursday - A Special Love, Book 2 in the Just A Little Crush series is available for Pre-order now, and will be on KU when it releases! And Elouise is sharing an exclusive excerpt with our readers!
Let's start with the blurb:
He won’t be a chore to have around if you choose him as the main vet for the shelter,” Carlton commented when he passed by the office later that day.They had been crazy busy for most of the morning and early afternoon when two of their staff had reported in sick. Rory usually kept the shelter at five staff and him, so there were always enough people to cover in case of emergencies. With less staff, it had meant Rory had to postpone his paperwork until then. The paperwork needed for this shelter was the bane of his life. If he’d known the amount he had to do, he might have second-guessed accepting the job.Probably not, though.“He seemed like he knew what he was talking about. It would be good to bring someone on that we can go straight to instead of having to ring around for whoever is available. And he’s local,” Rory agreed.“He’s also not bad to look at.” Carlton’s eyebrows waggled.Rory snorted. “Yeah, all right. Keep your libido in check, Australia. I don’t want this one to run off.” He gave him a mock frown and shooed him away. “Haven’t you got work to do?”Carlton’s booming laugh trailed behind even after he left the room, and Rory chuckled. He was right, though. It would not be difficult to have someone who looked like Heath around occasionally. His close-cropped auburn hair showed off the vast array of freckles on his tanned face and neck. He was large but not overly muscly, just enough to manhandle the animals he looked after. There had been two beaded bracelets wrapped around his wrist, giving him an almost earthy appearance. Rory couldn’t explain what he meant by that, but it was a word that seemed to fit Heath.When he laughed, the crinkles around his eyes showed a life full of humour and joy. Something that was severely lacking in Rory’s.The paperwork would not write itself, so he turned his attention back to the figures. The manager’s position had come at the perfect time for him. His sister had just married an asshole, and despite Rory’s proof that the guy was, in fact, a cheating shit, his sister didn’t want to know. So, instead of making life more difficult, especially when they’d moved next door to their parents, Rory did the next best thing and used the excuse of finding the perfect job somewhere else.He had no qualms with his parents, he just knew they would back Aggie regardless, and he didn’t need that in his life. He was enough of a disappointment to them as it was.
