Jack

For the past few years, I was drawing dead.

Every hand that was dealt to me couldn’t possibly give me a win. But with every step I took to move past my anger and hatred, I felt myself healing, and that was largely due to the Cortell brothers.

Like it or not, they helped me when I needed it the most. Every time they let me drag them down to the station, every ticket they took from me, gave me the strength to keep going.

What kind of person would I be if I didn’t return the favor?

Excerpt

Josh stood up, pulling out a rag out of his back pocket and wiping off his hands. “I was wondering when you would come by.”

I inclined my head just slightly. “Yeah? Why’s that?”

He laughed humorlessly. “Well, you’ve dragged all my brothers into your cell for anything from jaywalking to suspected kidnapping. I figured you were waiting for the big buildup.”

It was true. I had taken all my frustrations out on his brothers, but never once came near him or his family. I still hadn’t figured out why. Maybe because that meant I had to deal with my shit.

“So, what’s it going to be? Are you here to pin a murder on me or something?”

He glanced toward the office, shaking his head slightly at whom I could only assume was Carly. In that moment, I’d never felt more like a piece of shit. His brothers all took my harassment in stride, though they should have done something about me a long time ago. Yet the idea that Josh would think I would pin a murder on him really hit me hard. That wasn’t the man I was.

“No,” I finally spoke up.

“Let me guess, you found out something I did while on the run, and you’re here to drag me in.” He glanced off to the side, sighing slightly. “I can’t say I wasn’t expecting it. I mean, when I came back and asked for your help, I did pretty much tell you every crime I committed on the run. I always knew it would come back to bite me.”

It was true, he’d given me a lot of ammunition against him, but I’d never once thought of using it against him. I was angry, pissed that my life had been ripped apart, but it had never crossed my mind to do the same to him. I wanted him to know what it was like to suffer. I just didn’t want to be the one to inflict that kind of pain on him.

“So, you didn’t think of bringing Corduroy with you?”

“I’m not here to arrest you,” I said, my voice coming out gruff and low.

“Yeah? Then you came to chat? You don’t like my new brother-in-law and you want all the dirt you can get on him?”

I shook my head. As much as I hated Antonio, I wasn’t here for him either. In fact, the last thing I wanted to do was talk about Antonio.

“Then why the fuck are you here, Jack?” he spat, finally losing his temper on me.

I just stared at him, still trying to figure that out. And then something strange happened. I saw Natalie’s face, heard her laugh and felt her hug me that last day at Eric’s house. Except this time, I didn’t feel anger inside me. I didn’t want to rush forward and strangle the man that stood before me. I felt…peace, or something like it.

Tears filled my eyes as I stared at my former best friend, and for the first time, I thought about what Natalie would think of what I had become. She would be so disappointed in me. She liked Josh. She wanted me to help him.


Dead Man’s Hand

(A Good Run of Bad Luck #1)

Amazon US

I used to have it all, but then I was betrayed by my own uncle.
I should be dead, but my sister pulled me out of the wreckage of my life and gave me another chance.
No one can know who I really am.
So, I ran away, hiding out to live the rest of my miserable life in peace. But nightmares of my past transgressions make sure that never happens.
Until her.
When her car spun off the road, I should have left her to die. She wasn’t my concern, but when I saw her desperate eyes pleading with me to save her, I couldn’t turn my back.
With every day that passed, I found myself needing to be closer to her, to help her remember who she was.
But like everything else in my life, finding those answers could be dangerous.
She wasn’t just a random stranger.
She wasn’t innocent.
But now she’s mine, and I won’t let her walk away.

About Giulia Lagomarsino

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
