This week's Teaser Tuesday is from Still the One by Jill Shalvis!
Darcy Stone is game for anything — except sexy Navy veteran and physical therapist A.J. Colten, the guy who'd rejected her when she'd needed him most. Now the shoe is on the other foot and he needs her to play nice and help him secure grants for his patients. Unfortunately, Darcy can't refuse. She needs the money to fund her passion project: rescuing S&R dogs and placing them with emotionally wounded soldiers.
A.J. admits it — Darcy is irresistible. But he's already been battle-scarred by a strong-willed, vivacious, adventurous woman like Darcy, and he's not making the same mistake twice—until he and Darcy are forced to fake a relationship. Growing closer than they'd ever imagined possible, Darcy and AJ have to ask themselves: how much between them is pretend? What's the real thing? And where does it go from here?
Expected publication: April 7th 2015 by Berkley

Of course he didn't. Because he'd never found himself in a situation where he needed help from anyone. But if she said so, he'd only disagree with her. It was his second favorite thing to do, right after driving her batshit crazy.
AHH! I got approved for this book on NetGalley a few days ago and I'm not ashamed to admit I did a double fist-pump followed by some air-guitar when I found out. Jill Shalvis is amazing and if you haven't read this series you need to. If you haven't read her Lucky Harbor series, you need to. JUST READ EVERYTHING SHE WRITES, OKAY?
