From Inside the Book:
Raina made eye contact with Blue and cocked her head at the doorway. He got the signal and made his way out first. She followed in a leisurely fashion, hoping no one would notice their little rendezvous. It would be embarrassing if anyone thought they still had a thing for each other. At the foyer of the restaurant, she grabbed his arm and dragged him into the closet where her uncle kept janitorial supplies.
“What game are you playing?” Raina whispered.
“We shouldn't be alone together,” Blue said. His eyes twinkled with amusement and didn't match the words coming out of his mouth. “We wouldn't want our beloveds to get the wrong impression.”
“Is this engagement about Matthew or me? How are you related to Matthew?”
“Wow, you think highly of yourself, don't you? News flash, you're not the center of the world.”
Raina leaned back on her heels and studied her ex-boyfriend. Matthew hadn't shown any sign he knew Blue when her cousin had announced the engagement. Thinking back to the time they were together, Blue had often encouraged her to talk about Matthew and his family. At the time, she thought he cared about her, but knowing what she did now, she realized he had been pumping her for information.
Blue raised an eyebrow and opened his mouth—
And someone opened the closet, flooding the small space with light. Raina blinked at the sudden brightness and glanced at the doorway. Matthew's gold-flecked brown eyes shifted between Raina and Blue, his expression unreadable.
Raina's heart sank. Oh, no…
