We headed to Mahogany, the same place I had gone for New Year’s Eve a little over a month earlier. While the place immediately reminded me of Jules, I had to admit that it was an awesome bar with a great vibe. The bar was, obviously, made from mahogany, and that’s where Bill, Mike, and I had settled in on three barstools with me in the middle.
“Barkeep!” Mike yelled obnoxiously over the dance music that pumped from the sound system. The male bartender looked over at him and then proceeded to totally ignore him. Bill pulled out a twenty and waved it around, and the bartender made his way over.
“What’re you having?” he asked.
“Three shots of Jaeger,” Bill said.
The bartender looked at him. “You’re gonna need more than twenty bucks for three shots.”
Bill glanced over at us, and then he took his wallet out to provide more money while the bartender poured our drinks.
He passed the drinks across the bar to us. “Twenty-four,” he said to Bill.
“Fuck,” Bill said. He looked at me. “Eight bucks for a shot?”
I shrugged while he paid, and then the three of us toasted. “To getting fucked up,” Mike said, and we cheered and threw back the Jaeger.
A hundred bucks later, the three of us were feeling good and drunk when three ladies walked up to the bar to order their drinks. I checked each of them out from behind since their backs were to us, and after they placed their orders, they turned their attention to my friends and me. Each one of them focused on one of us, as if they had some sort of pre-arranged deal. It wasn’t my first time playing that particular game, and I somehow found myself incredibly drawn to the hottest one, the one whose attention was on me.
I gasped for breath as I gazed down the length of her petite, tight body and briefly thought that she could easily help me get over Jules. I frowned at the random thought.
She had dark hair and dark eyes, and she was short – a full foot shorter than me at least, if not more. She was Jules’s exact opposite in almost every way. Jules was tall with flowing blond hair and beautiful blue eyes while this woman was short with dark hair cut in a blunt style that fell just above her shoulders and dark, exotic eyes that I could get lost in.
In fact, I think I was already lost in them.
★★FOUR STAR REVIEW★★
Travis finally told Jules what he really felt but had his heart broken when the feelings were not the same. Travis and Jules had a relationship that turned from being best friends to being, in his mind, a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. When he thought he can finally have the girl who he wanted for years. At one point, his wish came true and he had the girl for a few days but hisexcitement died when she went back to the love her of her life. Travis was devastated and was on a downward spiral but then on a night out with his friends before a move, he met the girl who would become the girl of his dreams or so he thinks.
Lindsay was somewhat in the same situation as Tavis but she broke away from her boyfriend but once she got home, they got back together. She knew the one night she spent with Travis, he was the one but she couldn’t bring herself to hurt him. She lived a life with him that wasunhappy. One night, he wishes came true and she met Travis again. He couldn’t believe that his mystery woman was there again and he couldn’t believe that she was with someone, his coworker. They both knew that they wanted each other and decided to take the step.
The only thing that was coming between them was their insecurities, Jules and Spencer. Travis still loves Jules and he is confused with what he should be feeling and how he is feeling. He has a hard time diffusing any situations with Jules and it is affecting the relationship that he has with Lindsay. Travis is unsure of what he wants and seeing Jules only brings those feelings to the forefront.
Lisa Suzanne has kept us guessing what the future will hold for everyone in this triangle. Will Jules and Nick make it. Will Travis and Lindsay become united and begin to build their relationship or will Jules and Travis finally find their way to each other. We will all have to wait and see how this pans out in book three, Since He Really Feels.
