Caught Looking (Hot-Lanta Series)

Book One of the Hot-Lanta Series

Chapter 1

It has been two years today since George Lawrence broke Jane’s heart. She can’t believe it has been two years already. It seems like only yesterday she was picking out her wedding dress and talking to florists. Little did she know her fiancé was about to ruin her life.

This is the second time she will sit alone in her apartment and mourn the loss of one of her biggest dreams: becoming a wife. She decided last year that January 23rd was dedicated to getting absolutely plastered by herself while listening to sad old lady music and wasting her life away in pizza boxes and cartons of cookie dough ice cream. The first time she celebrated her fiancé cheating on her she found herself waking up in the stairway of her apartment building, with blender in hand sporting shorts, a sports bra and one sock. Her neighbor, Mr. Mendez, woke her up by poking a broom stick at her and yelling vamanos! She pulled her pathetic carcass out of the stairway and retreated to her empty apartment. This year she decided to go for a replay, since last year was so successful.

Why is it that a guy thinks it is alright to propose to the woman they “love” and then find it ok to go and sleep with the office slut on many occasions? One would think that proposing means that said man wants to be with said woman for the rest of their lives, in a committed monogamous relationship. Apparently, she missed the memo that cheating was ok when it came to George’s proposal.

It felt like yesterday when she just finished up with her final dress fitting and wanted to surprise George with a lunch and lay. She wore her sexy lingerie to spice things up since their sex life had been a little dry and thought the element of surprise would also send his shaft into high gear. Well there was surprise awaiting her for sure. When she walked in, all she could see was George hovering over Rebecca, the office slut, and plowing her so hard on his desk that she thought she may have seen the desk denting. God Rebecca was gorgeous. It was hard to compete with someone who had massively fake boobs and a body toned in all the right areas. She should have known earlier when George was working late and helping Rebecca with her new office position that something was going on between them. Jane stormed out of the office throwing her ring at the hooker and proceeded to move out of their beautiful home and in with her parents.

The one good thing about George and his cheating ways was it gave Jane drive to prove to everyone that she didn’t have to be a wife; she could actually succeed on her own. She took the education she earned at Duke University and applied it to her superior organizational skills to start her own event planning business, JB Events, also known as Jane Bradley Events. Although, JB Events was still a small business, she put on some great events thanks to her gay friend, Albert Winchester, whom has many connections.

Jane pulled into her apartment complex, grabbed her pizza and ice cream from the passenger seat, booze was already chilling in the freezer and she headed for her door. As she reached for her key to open her door, it flung open startling the crap out of her. Molly, her best friend, stood in the doorway and yanked her inside.

“What the hell are you doing here?” Jane shouted. “I gave you a key for emergency reasons only!”

“Girl, this is an emergency, have you seen your eyebrows? They’ve become one!” Molly said. “I have come to rescue you from your January 23rd self-destruction. I will not sit back again and listen to Mr. Mendez bitch about how he had to poke you for 5 minutes so you would get out of the stairway. It is time you get out of this rut you are in.”

“What rut? I’m doing fine for myself, thank you very much. JB Events is really starting to take off!”

“Yea, great your business is doing well, wonderful! What about your sex life? Or how about a social life?” Molly retorted. “If I go in your bedroom right now I bet I will find a couple of vibrators with worn out batteries.”

“MOLLY! Jeeze, is there a censor on that mouth of yours? So I haven’t had any men lately, I have been focused on work.”

Molly stared at Jane and said “You are so lucky and you don’t even know it, you can have sex whenever you want and yet here I am acting as the Virgin Mary until Luke gets back from wherever the government sent him this time. Skype and phone sex only go so far and that is when I actually hear from him.”

Jane always hated when Molly pulled the “girlfriend of a soldier card.” She and Luke had the best relationship you could ever imagine. It was sort of sickening actually. They loved each other so much and had an undying admiration for each other. Luke was out on a mission for 5 months now and it had been one of the worst since he had been in the army. He has worked his way up to be on an Elite Special Forces team and now Molly not only had no clue where he was, she barely heard from him. Occasionally she might get a letter, if she was lucky.
