Lost & Found by Anna B. Doe! The first in her New York Knights series.
I don’t know what I want to do with my life. The only thing I am sure of is that this is not what I imagined my life to be. So, instead of staying and trying to figure out what is wrong, I choose to run away. I choose the unknown. I choose the adventure.
My name is Anabel Majer, and I’m lost.
I have it all—well, almost all: family, health, money, fame, career, women, you name it. The only thing I am missing is a Super Bowl ring—or so I thought until the night everything changed. One night, a small Tinkerbell collided with my life, and I am gone.
My name is William Price, and I found her.
She is everything he wanted.
He is everything she needed to stay away from.
What happens if at the end of the journey you lose more than you find?
EXCERPT FROM LOST & FOUND
“Hey handsome.” One of the three girls slides in between J.D. and me. She leans into me, her hand gripping my bicep. I can smell the heavy perfume that surrounds her. “Whatcha drinkin’?”
She smiles sweetly, but I can’t be deceived with sweet innocent smiles, especially not when at the same time, she is showing me not just a good amount of cleavage with her lacy bra, but also pressing her boobs against my upper arm.
Money, fame, and sex—I’ve been in the world of professional football for a few years now, and I know how to recognize girls who are interested in one out of three or all three things, not necessarily in that order.
“Beer,” I say, rolling my eyes in my mind. It’s not like I’m not holding a bottle right in my hand. “Want some?”
She bats her long eyelashes and gives me a sly smile.
They all discuss what they want to drink and she gets on her toes to get closer to my ear so I can hear her better, pressing her whole body into mine. I offer to go get it, just so I can move from the table for a few minutes and breathe something not as intoxicating as her strong perfume.
“I’ll go with you,” J.D. says, and we both start walking through the crowd to the nearest bar.
We don’t make it but a few steps before I hear Matt calling after us.
I turn around and see him signal for another round for them too. Just as I continue after J.D., I feel a small body collide with mine.
Everything happens so fast.
I put one hand on her stomach, and with my other, I catch her hand to steady her. Long strands of dark hair caress my hand. They are soft and silky, and I feel heat and electricity running through my body.
She is so small, some would say tiny even. The top of her head doesn’t quite reach my chin. Even in a club with smoke, alcohol, and sweat, I can smell her fresh scent, sweet and flowery.
For a nanosecond, I meet her gaze.
Despite the dark, I can see her eye color—it’s the prettiest, strangest shade of blue I’ve ever seen in my life—piercing, dark, and shiny.
And then she is gone.
