Hey, ladies. I'm Nico Valenti, head chef at Luciano's. Kelley asked me if I'd come by and chat with you today. I'm not really sure why but hey, I'd never miss a chance to talk to a group of such beautiful women so here I am.
Not sure how much you know about me and my life but things got a bit sticky for me lately. This group of three women: Tabby, Kaylee and Brianna started coming into the restaurant every Friday night for girls night out. They're a riot and after a while, Luciano, my cousin and I, started spending a little time with them. Recently Luciano went and found himself in love with Kaylee. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for him. Hell, I was one of the ones pushing him in her direction from the get go. I knew she'd make him happy and Luciano deserved to be happy more than any guy I know (yeah I can get a little sappy when I want to but don't think I'll make a habit of it). Anyway, so yeah, I'm happy for him because I knew, before he knew love is something he really wanted.
Me on the other hand, not so much. Honestly life is too damn fun to be tied down to one woman. No offense, I love women and respect them but for me, the whole settling down thing isn't in the cards. I'm young, free and enjoying the hell out of it. Probably not the best thing to be saying to a group of women. Kelley warned me you were some pretty wicked women around here but its the truth.
So things were going pretty great for me. I started a fun little flirtatious relationship going with Tabby, one of Kaylee's friends. Well, truthfully it wasn't really a relationship but more of a I flirt with her but she doesn't give me the time of day kind of thing which let me tell ya, that's the first time that's ever happened and I didn't take to it all that well.
I'm man enough to admit the more she denied me, the more I started to want her. Then like I said, things got sticky. I don't want to give anything away by telling you why or how but lets just say that the flirtatious game doesn't feel like a game anymore. I can't get this woman out of my head and she won't give me the time of day. I'm going so crazy for her that I proposed (not marriage) but I asked her if we could start spending more time together outside of Luciano's but just as friends since that's all she wanted. You heard that right; friends no kissing, no touching, no nothing. Strictly friends. The thing is, now want her even more. She's knocked me on my ass. She's not only the most beautiful woman I've ever laid eyes on but...damn I don't know what it is. There's something about her. She has me wanting to spend every minute of every day with her. Those looks she gives me, simmering with heat and desire, they tell a different story than her no sex rule. There's a wanton living inside that woman and I'm hoping she'll give in and let me lure her out.
Like I said, sticky. This is so different for me. For the first time in my life I'm lost where women are concerned. I can't believe I admitted that in front of Kelley. Do me a favor, Kell, don't tell Luciano. That's all I need is for him to start in on me the way I did with him when he was falling in love with Kaylee.
Shit. Love? where the hell did that word come from.
Alright, I need get out of here before I get myself in anymore trouble. Tabby and I are having another one of our "dates" which aren't really dates at all because we're only friends tonight. Wish me luck, never thought the day would come where I'd have to ask for help with women but, this woman, she has me tied in knots. Damn, did you wicked writers cast some kind of spell on me? I can't believe all the stuff I'm admitting today.
I'm out of here. If you want to know anymore you're going to have to hit Kelley up or check out her new book Unexpected Mr. Right.
