Sample text

Calvin was being so good. He normally made a fuss whenever they left Libby and Tate’s place—it was as if he wanted to live there, instead of with her. Grateful for small favors, Julie made sure he was properly fastened in before sliding behind the wheel. “This is quite a car,” Garrett said, settled in on the passenger side of the pink Cadillac. “It’s a classic,” Julie said fondly.

It was a game they played, the two of them. “I love you all the way to the moon and back,” Julie replied. ” “I love you ten times more,” Julie batted back. “I love you all the numbers in the world,” Calvin finished triumphantly.
