Choose Me, an all-new standalone coming-of-age romance

by RC Boldt.

Wearing the nicest suit I own, I stand in the very back with a flask full of whiskey in my inner pocket. I put on a brave face as I watch her walk down the aisle.

Because itโ€™s too late.

I refuse to be the bastard who makes her cry on her wedding day, but Iโ€™m dying to tell her what Iโ€™ve always known. Sheโ€™s my best friend, but she doesnโ€™t realize she owns my f*cking heart and soul, too.

Each step down that aisle takes her farther away from me and brings her closer to him, forcing me to face the truth: Iโ€™ve fallen in love with someone who canโ€™t be mine. If sheโ€™d just turn around, maybe sheโ€™d realize I love her more than he ever could.

I wonโ€™t ruin her perfect day, but my broken heart begs me to try and convince her.

Choose me.

Excerpt:

โ€œHollis?โ€

I startle at the male voice calling my name. When I turn, I find a guy about my height wearing a button-down shirt beneath a sport coat and a pair of pressed slacks. He regards me with a mixture of surprise and recognition while I have no idea who the hell he is. He steps closer with a smile.

โ€œSorry to catch you off guard,โ€ he apologizes and holds out his hand to me. โ€œGrant Stevenson.โ€

I shake his hand warily. โ€œHollis Barnes.โ€ I pause before adding, โ€œBut somehow, you already knew that.โ€

He grins, and if Iโ€™m being completely honest, I donโ€™t detect any douchebag vibes. โ€œI recognized you from one of the photos Magnolia has in her room of the two of you.โ€

It takes all my control to suppress the jolt that zigzags through me at his words. She still keeps a photo of us?

His eyes crinkle at the corners, and he lifts his chin to gesture to me. โ€œAlthough I have to be honest, the ink and beard initially threw me off.โ€

A surprised laugh escapes me, and I slide my hands into my pockets.

Grant steps closer and glances around before lowering his voice. โ€œIโ€™m actually glad youโ€™re here. I know you and Magnolia havenโ€™t seen one another in a while, but youโ€™re her oldest friendโ€ฆโ€

Oldest friend. Not best friend. I donโ€™t miss the phrasing. Although I donโ€™t feel itโ€™s intentional, it cuts deep just the same.

โ€œIโ€™m nervous as hell, and Iโ€™m hopinโ€™ you can tell me if sheโ€™d like this.โ€

It takes me a moment to realize what heโ€™s pulled out of his pocket.

A velvet ring box and a packet of Pop Rocks.

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

I resist the urge to rub at the center of my chest, where searing pain radiates.

He flicks open the box to reveal a ring with a large diamond thatโ€™s fancy as hell. Something Mrs. Barton would love and deem appropriate. But Magnolia? Hell no.

โ€œHer mom helped me pick it out.โ€

Exactly.

โ€œAnd I know she loves Pop Rocks since she always has a pack.โ€

Not the strawberry flavor.

But heโ€™s trying. I can see the nervousness in his expression. The hope. The excitement.

I canโ€™t crush this guy. Heโ€™s exactly what her parents have always wanted for her. The kind of guy who doesnโ€™t get his hands dirty. The one with money and connections.

The one who can give her the future her parents expect her to have. The one who wonโ€™t come home with rough hands, callused to hell and back from working on a project thatโ€™s for a high-end client or due to be auctioned off to a car collector with more money than they know what to do with.

The man who wears button-downs like theyโ€™re second skin. Designer clothes.

So caught up in my thoughts, I donโ€™t immediately realize that heโ€™s pocketed the items and is gazing in another direction. When I turn and follow his focus, catching sight of her weaving through the crowd, I take advantage of the moment and let my eyes drink her in. Sheโ€™sโ€ฆso goddamn beautiful.

Her long blond hair spills down her back, and even beneath the shapeless graduation gown, her sleek, tanned legs peek out from the bottom hem, her heels accentuating her toned calf muscles.

When she catches sight of Grant, her entire face lights up, andโ€ฆgoddammit.

I canโ€™t do this. This was a fucking mistake. Itโ€™s like someoneโ€™s performing open heart surgery and just cracked my chest open without anesthesia.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I knew this would make an amazing story and it absolutely did! I loved this book. I swooned so much and it hit me with all the emotions. It definitely left an impact and left me with a book hangover. I loved these characters. RC did a great job of really making you feel for them and making you root for their happily ever after. I can’t wait for more from this author.
