Back in April, I met author KT Webb at the BF Bookies Book Bash in Clear Lake. We had the opportunity to hang out after the event and I’ve been following her writing adventures closely on Facebook. And today, I’m happy to be part of announcing the release of her latest novella, Hard Habit to Break!

An Excerpt from Hard Habit to Break by KT Webb
“It was a long time ago. I never looked at another woman like that and I refused to take off my wedding ring. I was still completely committed to her.”
“You don’t wear a ring now.”
“No,” he looks intently into my eyes, “I took it off about two months ago. I remember the day well.”
“What made you do that?”
Isaac is quiet for a moment as though he’s trying to decide if he should tell me something. That’s when I realize I’m the reason he took it off.
“I’ve been watching you quietly for a few months; there’s just something about the way you sit on your own reading books that makes you special. It was obvious to me that you didn’t have the patience for that annoying barista and I loved watching the facial expressions you made when she flirted with me.”
“I agree. But, I started to take more notice of you when some guy came up and tried to flirt with you. At first, I’d thought I was just coming back to the Daily Grind for the coffee and the atmosphere. It hadn’t clicked with me that I was intrigued by you until that day. The kid looked like he hadn’t showered in a month and he sounded like one of those kids who’s always high.”
“I remember him! He did not want to give up,” I laugh.“Well, I was getting annoyed with the way he pushed you and almost intervened. You put him in his place before I had to do anything. The jealousy I felt then told me I was finally ready to let Ellen go.”
“I can’t believe it took you so long to talk to me.”
“Your age stopped me. I didn’t want to come across as the creepy guy. I could be your dad.”
“But you’re not.”
“No, thank god for that.”
I lean forward and place a kiss on his cheek, “So here we are.”
His smile makes me feel warm all over, “Yes, here we are. And I don’t want to sound like I’m unhappy about it, but how did we get here? You don’t seem like the type to rush into a relationship.”
“I’ve been watching you too. At first it was just your cologne and the way you say caramel.”
