Spotlight: Love or Luxury by Heather Thurmeier

Love or Luxury
by Heather Thurmeier



Rebecca's life of luxury in Meadow Ridge is vanishing faster than the designer clothes from her closet--unless she finds someone to share her life and her rent.

When she meets Finn, the rugged, sexy motorcycle hunk, she thinks her luck has finally changed. There's just one problem--he's not from Meadow Ridge. Reid, her high school flame, comes back to town as the Meadow's most eligible bachelor, with a tendency to spoil his girlfriends, and a gorgeous mansion--everything she's always wanted.

Now Rebecca's torn between Finn, the man who lives a simple life outside the Meadow and Reid, the man who can give her the life she's always wanted.



"Hey, bro. How's it going?"

"Fine. Listen, I wanted to make sure everything is still okay for this weekend."

Colin laughed. "Gettin' a little punchy already, are ya? Boy she must be a looker."

His brother loved nothing more than a good excuse to tease him. "Oh, shut it. I'm not punchy. I just don't want to make the drive for no reason."

Like having a brother hanging around, killing the mood. Not that he was looking to get lucky or anything. It was a bit early for that. Although he probably wouldn't turn her down if she happened to suggest it. He was only human after all.

"The cabin is still yours. I'm not going to be there at all this weekend."

"Great, thanks."

"I told the cleaning service to put fresh sheets on the guest room bed, and there's plenty of wine and food in the fridge."

"We're using your lawn. No reason to change any sheets."

"Sure, you say that now, but I don't want to come home next week from the conference to find my master suite messed up."

"Seriously, dude. That's sick. I'd never use your bed for anything, let alone bring a girl into it. I know what you do in that bed out there all alone."

Colin laughed loudly into the phone. "I'm more of a shower guy myself."

"I'm hanging up now." Imagining his brother in the shower with a soapy hand was enough to spoil his good mood, and he didn't want that to happen.

"Hey," Colin yelled into the phone.


"Be sure to clean up after yourself. I don't want to find evidence of your indiscretion littering my yard." He laughed again and hung up the phone without giving Finn a chance to respond.
