As far as books go, it’s always cool when there’s secrets.
The Secrets Between Us by Katie Mettner released last week in the contemporary genre.
Of three things I was certain…
Mercy was exquisite in the most devastatingly broken way.
I didn’t know how to love, but for the first time in my life, I wanted to try.
The secrets between us could tear us apart forever.
I wouldn’t let that happen.
The book is on offer at 99 cents
“I came by to apologize,” he said, relaxing back in the chair like he owned the place.
“For?” I asked, sitting across from him in the other club chair.
“For being rude the other night,” he answered. “I’ve found myself in a bit of a surly mood lately and I apologize if I took it out on you.”
I bit my lower lip and tipped my head to the right. “Same, actually. Truce?” I asked, sticking out my left hand.
He leaned forward and shook it, somewhat awkwardly. “Truce.”
“Great, how about a drink then?” I asked before I thought too hard about it.
“I could definitely use one,” he agreed. “What do you have?”
“Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, or Captain Morgan,” I answered instantly.
His brow went up. “Clearly, you like the boys. I guess I don’t have to worry about you being a lesbian.”
A smirk lifted one side of my lips. “I’m strictly dickly.” I stood and walked to the kitchen door. “Now, who will it be?”
“Jack and Coke?” he ordered, and I walked off to the kitchen nodding.
“Be right back,” I said over my shoulder.
Once alone in the kitchen I blew out a long, slow, unsteady breath. The fact that I had a man in my living room was unnerving. The fact that it was him was terrifying. And, strictly dickly? Did I say that?

Hi Katie, and thank you for being here!
Thank you for hosting me and The Secrets Between Us on your blog today! I’m Katie, and I write from a little space overlooking the lake in Northern Wisconsin. I loved your questions so much I decided to do them a bit like a round of speed dating. Let’s begin!
Pen or computer: Computer. My handwriting sucks.
Music or silence: Silence. I have three teenagers.
Outline or just write: What’s an outline? JUST WRITE! The story will always take you where it wants to go.
If you were an animal, which one would you be? Giraffe. I am so short that I would love the freedom to reach to the trees!
If you could have any accent from anywhere in the world, which would it be? Irish. Didn’t even have to think. Irish.
Do you have any scars? What are they from? Well, here we go. I’ll just number them 😉
Left leg scar from below knee amputation.
Abdominal scar from three C-sections
Second abdominal scar from kidney donation.
Three smaller belly scars from gallbladder removal.
Shoulder scar from rotator cuff repair.
Neck scar from thyroid removal.
A pet peeve: Social media and everything it has become when the potential was there for it to do good.
What bill do you hate paying the most? Internet. We live rurally and it costs way too much for the crappy internet we get.
Thoughts on gas prices? I’m okay with where they are right now. Anything under three bucks (I live in Wisconsin) I can deal with. Once they start sneaking up above that, you’ll hear me groaning at the pump.
First thought when the alarm goes off in the in the morning? Don’t forget to put your leg on before you try to walk.
Do you miss being a child? So, so, so much. Wish I had appreciated THAT when I was a kid!
What errand/chore do you despise the most? Going to the post office. Ours is not super handicapped accessible, so I always put it off or drive to a different town to mail something!
Up early or sleep in? Up early. Early bird gets the worm. Just kidding. Early bird gets all the coffee.
Is marriage outdated? I don’t think so. I love being married, but I also don’t think it’s for everyone. I am an equal opportunity ‘do what works for you’ kind of person. I know a lot of married people who are miserable, so I definitely think it’s less about what we call it and more about picking the right person to do it with.
What famous person would you like to have dinner with? I don’t really want to have dinner with anyone famous, TBH. I’m not that kind of person. I would much rather have one more chance at dinner with my Grandma Hazel. I would sit there and not eat because I would hang on her every word knowing it was my last. I would be so grateful for the chance to be with her again in that way I would definitely pass on famous to do it.
