“She threaten to end your life yet if you hurt Becky?”
Teddy threw his head back and released a loud bellowing laugh.
“Am I really so predictable?” I grumbled.
Ryan kissed the frown off my face. “Only when it comes to your temper,” he promised, extending his hand to Teddy one more time. “Word of advice? Don’t disappoint Jamie. It can be hazardous to your health.”
“Speaking from experience?” Teddy asked.
Ryan laughed. “Hardly. Jamie’s way to smitten to ever be disappointed in anything I do.”
“Smitten?” I asked dryly.
“Yeah, you know, besotted? Infatuated? Obsessed? Head over heels in love with me?”
“Like you are with yourself?” I deadpanned, but I laughed despite myself.
Ryan grinned. “There’s the smile I’ve been waiting for. I knew you had one in you somewhere.”
I gave up and wrapped my arms around Ryan’s waist like the smitten girlfriend that I was. “I love you.”
Oh, Jamie and Ryan, how I've missed you guys!
It's been what, a good three years since I've spent any real time in the world of Jamie Baker? And I've written what, four and a half novels since finishing that manuscript?
I'm finding the experience very interesting. It feels like meeting up with an old friend you used to know everything about. A little awkward at first, but the more time we spend together the more we fall into our old routine.
I am going to have to go back and read Being Jamie Baker again though before I write any more because I wrote so many drafts of Jamie that I honestly can't remember everything that ended up in the final version. Not to mention Ryan keeps wanting to act like Russ Devereaux. (The sarcastic, unruly, slightly devious warlock in my supernatural series.) While both boys are equally in love with themselves Ryan is way to sweet to be Russ.
So, this is me putting aside Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series to re-read Being Jamie Baker. Also, this is not an attempt to avoid actually writing. I swear.
