About Sir: The Awakening:
Nate Stone is the kind of man that makes a girl fall–fast and hard. I can’t let that happen if I want to protect my heart. But if I take what he’s offering, will it be enough?
Hollywood heartthrob Nate Stone returns to his south Louisiana hometown to direct a movie, but once he gets there all he can think about is the pretty waitress at the local diner. Tori Wilson knows that the smoking hot actor-turned-director will stop at nothing to get her into his bed, but he can only offer her a short affair–and he’s asking for a lot more than simple sex. Tori has never wanted anyone as bad she wants Nate, but is she willing to let him take control when she’s already been burned before? And if she submits to his commands, will he dominate her heart?

Hometown hero, boy-who-made-it-big, millionaire, Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Academy Award Winner actor, you know, that Nathanial Stone.
Then Nate Stone came home. Well, to his hometown. That he apparently hates. But, as he tells it, his hometown of Boden, Louisiana is the only place in the world that properly exemplifies the feeling of gloom and desperation that he’s going for in his directorial debut, and, apparently, the Finewhile Diner was the only place in town that had a decent internet connection when he first arrived, which is how he met me.
Nate and his three brothers are the lucky ones who got out of Boden and made it rich. I’m the dumbass who got sucked in and got poorer. It’s a story everyone’s heard before – stupid, naïve college freshman virgin meets the handsome star quarterback and she’s dumb enough to ruin her life for him.
Obviously, I’m the stupid virgin. (Or was. The virgin ship sailed on the first date with the QB because apparently I’m an easy lay.)
Brady Boden, of the Boden family that the town is named after and that still directly or indirectly employs pretty much everyone in it, is the one who I ruined my life for.
Brady got hurt playing football, and the next thing I know, I’ve given up my scholarship spot at LSU and I’m in his craptrap hometown playing nursemaid while his mama sits on her ass and tells me about how I suck. Needless to say, we broke up, but by then I was too broke to leave the town, much less go back to school. In the years that followed, like the dumbass I apparently am when men are concerned, I go back when I’m feeling lonely.
My darkest fear is that one day I’ll look up and realize I married him.
Elizabeth found me when I was at my lowest point. She took me in to her home, made me a part of her family, and gave me a job at her family diner, which is why she’s the best person I know and my very own fairy godmother. When my mom was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s and had to go to a nursing care facility in Iowa, Elizabeth gave me a raise so I could take care of her. And it’s the job she gave me at her diner that put me in the path of Nate Stone.
God bless her.
Elizabeth is right—Nate does have a usual booth that he sits in every day and I was wondering where he was when I poured coffee on my hand instead of into the cup.
And she was right that I was thinking about my date with Nate last night.
Because somehow Nathanial Stone, the man who makes it to the top of People’s Sexiest Men Alive list, the man who dates supermodels and A-list actresses…
That man finds me attractive.
And he asks me out and flirts and apparently wants to have sex with me and everything.
I don’t think I break mirrors, but I know I’m not in the same universe, much less the same league, as the previous women he’s dated.
But last night he made it very clear that he wants me.
And, god help me, I want him too.
