Curvy Women Wanted, 32

Ward Hildreth and Kirsty Blake hate each other. No one knows exactly why, but they always argue, fight, and just don’t get along. Ward cannot deny that he finds the curvy brunette sexy as hell. He has admired her body for a long time, but that doesn’t mean anything.

For Kirsty, she has never liked smart-mouthed Ward. He always seems to think he knows best, and he always has to have the last word. Much to her surprise, she learns of a bet that has been placed on her and Ward finally getting together. She is shocked and when she tells Ward, he is just as surprised as her. What starts out as a civil conversation, soon becomes heated, and Kirsty doesn't know what exactly happened next.

One moment they’re fighting, the next, they’re kissing. Only that kiss … was amazing.

There is only one tiny problem, both of them want to do it again. They agree to date in secret. There are many surprises along the way through their secret dating. Ward starts to fall for her, and he loves that he is the only man she has been with. He is going to make this the best experience of her life.

When Kirsty becomes pregnant, Ward knows it is only a matter of time before everyone knows their secret, but he wants her to know his feelings. He is in love with her, and he is not going to run and hide. He wants to show everyone that she belongs to him.


“So, you’ve got me all alone. Do you want to tell me what is going on?” Ward asked.

She spun around, and from the time it took her to close the door, he’d already moved closer to her. Rubbing at her temple, she let out a little laugh. “Ugh, it’s kind of complicated.”

“Complicated?” he asked.

“Well, yes, and no, ugh, I don’t know.” She nibbled her lip. “Do you … do you know of any kind of bet?”

His frown deepened. “Bet?”

“Yes, about you and me.”

He shook his head. “No, why would I know of any kind of bet?”

“Well, I was talking to my friend.” She stopped, debating if she should say who it was.

“Bethany,” he said.

“How do you know she’s who I’m talking about?”

“You and her are always hanging out. You always have. It’s not hard to come to this conclusion.”

“Oh.” She was surprised he knew, but then again, she and Bethany had been friends since long before kindergarten even started. Their mothers had been best friends, and that friendship had developed between their daughters, which again is why they had the make-ahead Saturday.

She’d loved today, and tomorrow, she and Bethany would continue in the afternoon.

“What has Bethany said about a bet?” he asked.

“It’s … I didn’t know if you had started the bet or something like that.”

“You know, I didn’t think it was possible, but you have this talent, Kirsty, for making me so confused. What bet?”

“Ugh! Apparently, there has been a bet running since high school about you and I getting together. I didn’t know if you started it as a joke.”

Silence met her response.

She stared at his chest, and no, she wasn’t admiring the peek of bare flesh she got from the open shirt he wore. Ward was dressed in jeans, and he wore a flannel shirt, which was open, over a white vest. He’d not removed the flannel shirt, but that didn’t stop her from seeing some of his chest.

What the hell was the matter with her?

“I have no idea what you’re talking about. I don’t know about any kind of bet. Are you making this up? Trying to play a joke on me?”

“Me! Play a joke on you? You’re completely insane, Ward. I’m not the one who plays jokes. That is you. All you.”

“Oh, yeah, well, maybe if you had a sense of humor, I wouldn’t have to play jokes on you, to get you to actually laugh.” He took a step toward her.

Kirsty refused to back down, and she snorted. “Oh, please, I don’t need you to laugh. I laugh all the time, and it has absolutely nothing to do with you. You’re not even funny. You’re not anything that resembles a joke.”

She had no idea what she was saying, or what she was doing.

“Yeah, I think you’re lying about this bullshit bet. You and I … it was never going to happen. In your wildest dreams.”

“Trust me, Ward, you do not feature in any of my dreams. You’re not even a single thought in my head when I have … dreams.” She didn’t know what she was saying, as nothing was making sense to her right now.

She didn’t know how it had happened, but she suddenly stood toe to toe with her nemesis.

“Don’t worry, I know you couldn’t imagine having any kind of fun. You don’t want anything in a man. He must be boring as an old stick.”

“Yeah, and he certainly won’t be anything like you. I mean, what disease have you picked up lately!”

“I don’t know, why don’t you tell me?”

Kirsty wasn’t quite sure how she got from insulting him to kissing him. One moment, they were glaring at each other, not a smile between them, and the next second, his lips were on hers.
