Ready for your Tuesday dose of Marked? Here it is:
Ten minutes later I noticed Jace waiting in line to pay and couldn’t help but feel disappointed he was leaving already. I was cleaning off his table when he came up behind me and gently tapped me on the shoulder.
“Here, I’m not cheap. I swear,” he said, handing me a ten.
“I didn’t—thanks,” I cut off my fumbled words and took the ten.
Our fingertips made the briefest of contact then, and flickers of warmth sparked under my skin from it. Startled, I jerked away and met his gaze. A wild sense of awe and suspicion mixed within his eyes.
And just because I feel like it...here's one of my favorite Jace sentences:
“Life’s too short to waste on someone who’s not a complete jerk most of the time,” he insisted. “I’m Jace, by the way, Jace Fowler.”
Hope you enjoyed it! Oh and, here's another little something to keep you on the edge of your seat...Marked's cover is getting a slight face lift as we speak! I've hired an INCREDIBLE cover artist to clean up the cover. I've seen the mock up already and OH MY GOSH is it GORGEOUS! Cannot wait to share! Maybe next week... ;)
