Coming soon Alex and Valerie bonus scene -I can already feel the angst!

What about this bonus scene? 

So here is the scene from Forever Mine I posted on my fan page a few days ago.

“I’ve scored, ass.” Romero turned to Sarah. "Speaking of me scoring, where’s Valerie?”

Sarah went stiff. She glanced at Alex; his face was unreadable. “Home.” 

“You should’ve brought her,” Romero said. 

When Sarah looked at Alex again, he was staring at Romero, but didn’t say a word. 

Eric laughed. “Scored? She shot you down on Friday, and she was drunk. She takes one look at your mug sober, she’s gonna freak that she even let you kiss her.”

Alex's eyebrows shot up. “You kissed her?” 

“She liked it,” Romero said, more to Eric than Alex.

“So, you went out with her?” Alex asked. 

Romero turned to look at Alex. “Nah, we hung out after the game. All of us did at the beach.”

“But you kissed her?” 

Sarah squirmed, wanting to disappear. Alex had that same tone he’d had on the phone with Valerie. The same unmistakable tone Angel would get when he was getting heated.

Romero made a face. “Yeah, so what? I can’t help it if the chicks dig me.” 

Alex rolled his eyes, and looked at Eric. “And she shot him down?” 

“Yeah.” Eric laughed.

Sarah nodded vigorously, and then stopped when she saw Romero was looking at her. The look on his face was almost comical. “She told you that?” 

“Well, no... I mean… I can’t tell you what she said. It’s girl talk.” She stood up quickly. “I’m starving.” 

“You got shot down.” Alex smiled. 

Sarah could see it was a forced smile. Angel stood up with Sarah and followed her to the buffet table. When they got back, Romero and Eric were arguing again about the Chargers and Alex was gone. Something told Sarah Valerie would be getting that call she’d been waiting for. 

I had enough show of hands of readers who would like to read the never before seen "phone call scene" in Alex's POV.  So ABM currently has 59 reviews on Amazon. To give me time to write the scene and because I know that number will go up with the contest. When we hit 100 reviews I will post the bonus scene and let me tell you I already know he'll be mad. This is gonna be fun! =) Winners of the signed copy of ABM will be announced next Friday morning and bonus scene will be posted as soon as we hit the 100 review milestone. Ready, set Go!!!!!  

UPDATE 8/4/12 It's up now! Read the entire bonus scene HERE. 

 Alex stalked through the restaurant, feeling his muscles tense up with every step he took. She kissed Romero? Or was it the other way around? He couldn’t even remember now. The irritation was already clouding his memory. It took everything in him not to reach across the table and wring Romero’s fucking neck after hearing his "chicks dig me" remark.

He knew Valerie didn’t owe him any explanations—he wasn’t entitled to any answers, but he wanted some, damn it. They’d just slept together that week and it had been incredible. Sure, he hadn’t called her since, but he’d been busy. He was going to eventually.

Alex didn’t know what pissed him off more—that she’d kissed another guy so soon after being with him, or that it was Romero. Pushing the back door to the restaurant open, he walked out and pulled his phone out of his pocket. He should really wait until he was a little calmer. At least until the visual of Romero’s lips on Valerie’s wasn’t still blazing in his brain. But he needed to talk to her now.

He waited for her to answer, the anger building with every ring.


“You kissed Romero?”



And just because I love this song so much and it seems fitting here. I added this little diddy. "Stop making a fool outta me, Valerie!" Thank you Amy. RIP. <3 



  1. I have always loved that song and until now I never have placed it with Alex Moreno lol

    1. I love this song and strangely I like the live version much better than the recorded version that's why I posted this one! =)

  2. I absolutely love Amy Winehouse and Valerie has to be my favorite song of hers..WOW! Great minds think alike ;)
    and yes there are several different versions of this song but I like this one better then the others.
    Lately I have been listing to the Amy Winehouse and John Meyer station on Pandora. They stir up some deep emotions while listening to their lyrics. Good for reading and writing I think.
    I can't wait for Alex's POV. This is going to be fun!!

  3. i t fits them two perfectly...

  4. I tried posting a review and I can't because I don't make purchases through Amazon.
    I have read All your books and they are amazing. Always Been Mine is one of my Favs. Come on just post that bonus scene early. I'm like a stalker checking in every day several times a day! Just save me already! ;)

    1. hahaha I feel you pain Sarah! I come here daily also. We need to see this scene already!! Come on people let's do this! I about to go door to door to see if anyone wants to borrow my book so they can write a review. Also, Eli your word count thingy hasn't changed and it's making me twitchy..LOL!

    2. Oops I've been forgetting to update the word count thing but I did now! This one is getting written much slower than all my others because this summer has been CRAZY. I'm getting ready to leave for another vacation in a few days. I'll be sweetening the pot a little and hopefully that will get the post up soon! =) As usual stay tuned! We're so close now at 86!
