Man-Berry Sauce

A Second Helpings Short Story

By Tessa Blake

She’s giving thanks that they’re not together anymore … or is she?

Caleb Wells and I are history. Ancient history.

Sure, I’ve loved him since I was a kid, and we were high-school sweethearts. Whatever. He dumped me with no warning months ago, and I am completely over it—and him.

But breaking up with Caleb doesn’t mean I broke up with his family. I’ve known them my whole life, and when they invite me for Thanksgiving, I know this is one of the few days of the year I won’t be able to avoid Caleb. I should say no, but they’re my family, too, damn it.

I’ll eat some turkey and pie, be civil to my ex, and hightail it home for some wine and Netflix—and maybe a good cry in a hot bath.

I can do this.

How hard can it possibly be?

This is a quick, holiday-themed short story ebook, roughly 40 pages long.

A short very well written steamy second chance romance. A great storyline and plot. Likeable characters that develops well. A second chance that is sweet, steamy and absolutely amazing. I liked the twist because it felt so real. An amazing short read that is captivating and enjoyable.
