Angles – Part I
Publication date: November 3rd 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance
A compelling love story about Caralee, her best friend Teddy, and her new love interest, Sam. The intensity of Sam entering into Cara’s life challenges her friendship with Teddy – which was forged long ago when they encountered a deranged gunman. Teddy will stop at nothing to protect Cara – even if it means keeping his long time business associate and once best friend far away from her.
This story is about friendship and relationship triangles, love and protection, love and understanding, and love and true love.
Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended the University of Oregon, where she graduated in 2003 with a degree in journalism. From there she moved to Denver and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.
It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a Realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book (and binge-watching the subsequent films) in the New Adult genre. Feeling hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story leading up to their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles trilogy.
Erin still lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband, Phil, and their three children.
I’m hyperaware that my chest is heaving with each breath. I imagine he’s pressed against my chest, putting pressure on my heavy breathing. I imagine dropping my granola bars and Advil, his hands in my hair and mine in his. I think about pulling his shirt open and kissing his chest.
I only sense out of the corner of my eye that the elevator doors open. Third floor, my stop, but I can’t move. Still paralyzed, I will him closer to me, so we can bring my fantasy to life. Is he reading my mind? Because he’s taking a step toward me and his turquoise eyes are piercing further inside me.
I feel movement in my front right pocket.
The sound of my phone brings my trance and fantasy to a halt. “Oh, um,” I say out loud. Why did I say anything out loud?
“Jason, hi,” I answer after seeing his name on the front of my phone.
Sam takes a step back to where he originally stood.
“Dinner tonight? Um, yeah. I’ll call you when I’m back.”
Sam continues to stare, watching me on the phone with the man I’m dating.
What was I thinking? I’m sure I wouldn’t have followed through with touching him, kissing him. That was just a crazy moment I had in the elevator with a hot guy. This isn’t me.
We might not be serious, but I’m loyal to Jason. What was he thinking? He’s married. Could I have imagined the whole thing, all the intensity and attraction? I hope so.
The elevator doors open once more, and Sam steps out. He turns and faces me while the doors close, separating us. I press the button for the third floor again. I’m alone now. I won’t miss my stop this time. – Chapter 4
