About Notice Me

Andrew Moore has always thought of Victoria as family. She is his best friend’s little sister and his little sister’s best friend, but recently something has changed. Andrew is thinking about Victoria in a completely different way. She will never fit into his quiet, conservative world. They are too different to have a future together, but he can’t help noticing her.

Victoria Carson has been in love with Andrew since her sixteenth birthday, but Andrew never noticed her as anything other than his best friend’s little sister. She fled from her hometown so that she wouldn’t have to watch Andrew build a life with someone else. But things have changed. Andrew is now a widower, and Victoria has returned home. It is time to make him notice her.

Return to Holton, Texas to see if Victoria can get Andrew to notice her. Notice Me is the second book in the Holton Series but may be read as a standalone novel.

Excerpt

“Drew,” Victoria said drawing his attention.  He was pleased to note she had returned to the shortened version of his name.  “What’s going on?”

Cover_Notice Me copyAndrew took a deep breath.  Here was the hard part.  Victoria was very independent, and he knew if he said the wrong thing, she would dismiss him in two seconds flat.  “I thought I would go with you to look at those buildings for your friend.”

Her eyes narrowed.  “Why?”

“The children are visiting their grandparents today so I’m going into Dallas anyway.  Normally, I do some work while they visit but I thought about you and hoped you wouldn’t mind the company.”

She studied him a moment.  “Let me get this straight.  You want to spend the day with me looking at buildings?”

“Yes.”

“Why?”  She asked again.

Andrew walked over to the large window and looked out.  Both children were sitting quietly, albeit somewhat impatiently, in the car.  Slowly, he turned back to her.  He looked into her eyes wondering if he had mistaken the look he had seen last night.

“Tell me I didn’t see what I think I did last night.  Tell me that you didn’t experience that moment too.”  He watched her grow pale at his words but he had to know.  “Tell me, Victoria, tell me you don’t want me as much as I want you!”

She started to turn away but he reached for her arm and pulled her back to face him.  “You can’t, can you?”

“No,” she whispered.

Andrew was shocked at the relief that rushed through him.  He had not realized how much her answered had meant to him.  He slowly let go of her arm before saying softly, “That’s why.”
