[BLOG TOUR] CHASING THE SUN by Nikki Mathis Thompson

Nikki Mathis Thompson

When Ian Radcliffe gets the opportunity to leave town to consult on the project of his career he’s doesn’t think twice. He loads his dog and guitar into the back of the Jeep and flips Dallas the bird as it becomes a speck in his rearview. A change of scenery, that’s just what he needs. His heart isn’t broken anymore, just sore. He thought he’d found the one in Katrine MacNamara, but unfortunately she thought he was number two. He wasn’t a rich businessman, or a rockstar...he was just an architect. He believed in love, family, and friendship. Some might call him the ‘nice guy’. He always thought so— do the right thing, protect the bullied, return your mom’s calls. When two dynamic women enter his life in this new city the lines of friendship, sex, and love are blurred, his world of black and white becomes a little more gray. Will the heartbroken become the heartbreaker? Readers fell in love with Ian in Rebound and Resilient. This is his story and his chance at a love of his own. It won’t come easy, like he always thought it would. But nothing good comes easy...at least nothing worthwhile. Hold onto your hammocks girls, your favorite nice guy is taking center stage. It’s Ian’s turn to get the girl...or two. Chasing the Sun is a 40,000 word novella, and although this is a spinoff of the Rebound series, it can be read as a stand alone.

He called the project engineer on site and let him know he was running late but would be there within the hour. He’d never been late nor missed a day, so it wasn’t a huge deal, but it irked him that he might come off as unprofessional. He dressed quickly then paused at the closed door. Rory was out there. He knew how girls could get after sex. He just hoped she wasn’t going to get all clingy and weird. That had happened to him a time or two. Go to bed with cool and laid back, wake up with needy and possessive.
 He prayed that wasn’t going to be the case. He thought she was a cool chick and a fucking smokin’ lay, but he didn’t want anything serious. He didn’t have time to worry about it, he needed to get his ass to work.
He walked out into the living room to find Rory sitting cross legged on her linen bean bag chair, a mug of coffee in one hand and a book in the other. When she heard him come in, she smiled.
“Hey. I didn’t know if you had to be somewhere or not, but decided to let you sleep. I figured you needed to replenish your fluids.”
Good teasing, he could deal with this.
He laughed and said, “Yeah, it was some night.” He waited for her to get up, but she didn’t. “I have to get into work, so…”
“Yeah, right on. I sent you that link to the song I want you to sing, check it out.” She went back to reading her worn paperback.
“Well, I’ll see you later then?”
“Sounds good. Let me know when we can practice again,” she said, taking a sip of her coffee.
“How about Friday night?”
“Cool. See ya then, Ian.”
“Yeah…see ya then.” He grabbed his guitar and opened the door.
“Thanks for the fun evening?” One, it sounded like a question, and two, it sounded really fucking stupid.
She look up and smiled again. “No, thank you.” Wink.
He shut the door and stood there for a minute.
What the hell just happened?
He didn’t want her to be clingy, but shit! A kiss goodbye would have been nice or a thanks for the multiple orgasms, you stud.
So this is what it felt like? If he’d had tits this would be considered the walk of shame. But he didn’t have tits. No! He had a dick, a big one, and balls full of sperm.
Hell yeah I do!
No shame in his game…he’d gotten laid, and well.
He mentally high-fived himself and a smug smile replaced his look of bewilderment as he strutted back to his car.
