“I don’t suppose you could give me a ride, could you?” Excerpt ~ ENTANGLED DREAMS

This is just a teaser. If you want to read the first three chapters, click here.

From the first chapter... Nicky realizes more than ever that her life is heading in the wrong direction... She's lost both of her parents, has a worthless boyfriend, and she still has to go to work. 

But now, is she making another mistake?


Nicky sat on the cold concrete, waiting for a return call that never came. This was it; they were over. Never would she allow a man to take hold of her life and use it when he wanted. From now on, she’d take what she wanted. As soon as she saved enough money, she’d escape him and the rotten life she’d somehow ended up living.  
The door opened and Nicky looked up instinctively, but lowered her head remembering her tears. Her eyes were surely bloodshot and swollen. It was the gentleman from her table, the nice one. He cast a glance in her direction, but then walked off toward the parking lot.
A few seconds later, he appeared in front of her again. Only this time he was sitting on a motorcycle. “I apologize about my coworker.” He shook his head as though it were his fault Brad-guy was a moron. “Brad’s an idiot even when he doesn’t have a few beers in him.”
Nicky looked the man over; he looked like a nice guy. “I don’t suppose you could give me a ride, could you?” she asked, shocked she would even think of such a prospect.
Motorcycle-guy looked bewildered, too. “Uh, sure. You can wear my helmet, I suppose.”
