“And the hits keep coming,” I say as I answer the call.
Peter gives me a faux-offended look. “I’m just checking in on my dear little
brother! For all we know, your Tracey—”
“Teddie,” I answer before I can stop myself. I immediately regret opening my
mouth when Peter gives me a mischievous grin.
“Right,” he drawls. “Tawney—”
I suck on my teeth. “Pete. Petey. Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater…”
He snorts and raises an eyebrow. “I thought you were never going to call me that
“Well, you’re intentionally goading me.”
His grin quirks up at the sides. “I’d call it more of a test. You failed, by the way.”
“What? How could I fail?” I blurt out before relaxing back into my seat. “I mean, I
don’t know what you’re testing, but I’m good at taking tests. I’m quite intelligent.”
Peter shakes his head in amusement. “And yet you fall for my tricks every time. I
can’t lie, though. I rather enjoy it.”
I’m getting annoyed that he’s beating around the bush. “What was the test?”
“Well, I thought I’d check and see how you’re getting on with… Teddie.” I narrow
my eyes at him, and he rolls his before adding, “Yeah, I knew her name. And the fact
that you corrected me means you know it too.”
I lift an eyebrow. “Of course, I know it. We’ve been together for five days,
fourteen hours, and twenty-seven minutes. Give or take.”
“So, you’d say your routine has been shaken up? And how does that make you

He shrugs. “My plan is working. I don’t care what you say. You obviously like her
since you’ve felt bothered enough to remember her name. She might be just what you
I grunt and lean back in my chair, far enough to crack my back. “What I need is
peace and quiet. What I need is time alone. But what I get is Teddie.”
“What do you mean?” Peter cocks his head to the side like a dog trying to
understand his owner’s gibberish.
“She’s everywhere, all the time! Whenever I leave my room, she’s in the kitchen
baking cookies or cakes or whatever the fuck she’s making for the day.”
Peter gives a low whistle. “Sounds rough.”
I glare at him, trying to think of other things I find annoying about Teddie. “She’s
always… humming or singing.”
“Yikes. Can’t carry a tune?”
I throw my hands up. “No! Always on-key with perfect pitch, which makes it even
worse! She’s like an angelic little songbird.”
Peter gives me a sarcastic look through the screen. “Ah, yes, that must be
“And she’s practically sunshine in a sundress. I’m losing my goddamn mind.” I
run my fingers through my hair as if to showcase the point. “I know this is all some sort

Peter shakes his head at me. “Oh, my sweet, naïve little brother… You’re in a
mess—that’s for sure. Let me tell you what’s actually going to happen.” He leans in
closer, so I mimic his movements. “You’re going to fall in love with this woman and stay
in Christmas Key forever.”
“It’s Candy Cane Key,” I reply robotically before realizing what he said and
sputtering. “That’s never going to happen!”
About Elyse Kelly
Hi, I’m Elyse!
I’m just a true southern girl, reading and writing books, asking you to love me! My books are extra steamy, contemporary romances, all with HEAs and no cliffhangers! They’re short, smutty, and tastefully trashy.
If you love over-protective, sexy, alpha book boyfriends who make you swoon and reach for your favorite… bookmark, then you’ve come to the right place.
When I’m not writing books or doing bookish things, I’m probably listening to music, designing smutty stickers, adding to my spectacular band t-shirt collection, or learning how to do something new like arm-knitting because I’m neurodivergent AF! And yes, I really do know how to knit with my arms.
