Twenty-four-year-old photographer's
apprentice Regina has always felt like the plain, dull orange next to the shiny
red apple that is her best friend Lana. But then she meets Ben—the first guy to
ever break Lana's heart, and the first guy to ever make Regina feel that he
only has eyes for her. 

As Regina finds herself falling hard for Ben, she also
finds herself breaking all the rules of best-friendship. Will she give up the
love of her life for Lana, or will she finally realize that she deserves her
share of the spotlight, too?

“Regina,” he began,
his expression turning serious. “When fate hands you a gift like this, you
don’t pass it up. I was waiting, hoping you’d call. Then when I finally
realized you weren’t going to and that maybe it was a sign telling me I wasn’t
going to see you again, I walk in here today and see you sitting there…”
Lightness returned to his face. “Looking incredibly bored. I just had to find a
way to entertain you.”

Regina laughed,
relieved at his change in tone. She wasn’t ready to deal with that yet. He was
making her feel all sorts of things. Too many things. “Are you going to sing
and dance for me then?” She crossed her arms to show she was waiting.

To her amazement,
Ben jumped up, took a deep breath, and opened his mouth. She grabbed his hand
and tugged him back down into his seat. “Paulo is going to throw us out!” she
hissed. “No, he’s going to fire me first, then throw us out!”

“He can’t throw
me out.” Ben looked wounded. “I’m a celebrity.”

“That’s getting
old, Ben.”

He laughed. Warm,
rich, full laughter, rolling over her and finding its way into her heart.
Lodging itself there, making her feel full, giddy. This was dangerous. But it
was so good too. Kind of like macadamia nut chocolate ice cream, breakfast in
bed served by woodland creatures, or a guy you’d just met who made you feel as
if you’d known him all your life.
