A GUY AND A GIRL by Victoria Adams
Lies, deceits and secrets - not a good way to begin a relationship.
After an ugly past forced Hunter Connolly to escape to Europe, the talented hockey player is back in North America and determined to land a position with a professional team. But he can’t hide from his past forever, especially when his beautiful classmate, Chelsea, forces him to reexamine his life. Soon, hockey is not his first priority anymore.
Chelsea Henderson is a bright co-ed working towards her dream of being a professional dancer. She forms a unique friendship with one of her father’s newest recruits and would love nothing more than to take it to the next level. However, there’s just one small problem. He doesn’t know she’s his coach’s daughter.
Amid the deceptions, danger lurks closer than they could ever imagine. Will fate contrive to rip the young lovers apart? Or will Hunter and Chelsea have their shot at love?

Scene set – in a local pizzeria. Chelsea and her friend, Cole, join Hunter and 2 of his teammates – Zach and Rod.
This scene was cut so early that Cole's name hadn't been changed to Kendall, which is what it is in the book. I changed her name because I thought having 2 main characters with names that started with the same letter might get confusing.
"Everyone has to take a minimum of two courses." Cole placed her drink on the table. "I’m taking painting and sculpturing. Chelsea’s taking Communications and a dance course and Hunter’s taking Communications and Genetics."
Sitting between Zach and Rod, Cole had the perfect vantage spot to watch every move Hunter made. She watched how his eyes moved from person to person as the conversation progressed. She was mesmerized watching his lips touch the glass as he drank his Coke. His face easily smiled. He was relaxed, totally at ease. To Cole, Hunter’s body was a flame and she was a willing moth.
Hunter shook his head. "It’s not genetics. I tried explaining this to Chelsea. It’s a biology credit - Principles of Ecology. Genetics is just the current section, and if they are all as complex as this I’m so screwed!"
"You're a dancer?" Rod asked, with the air of the youngest at the table trying to look mature.
"Well, I’m studying dance but I’m not sure that’s what I want to be." Chelsea titled her head towards her friend. "Cole's the artistic one. I want something else."
"I want to know why women always eat the guy’s pizza and never eat their own." Hunter tossed his slice onto Chelsea’s plate. "She’s eaten half my pizza and stole all the pepperoni off this slice."
Cole chuckled. "Somebody else’s pizza always tastes better."
"And has fewer calories." Chelsea placed the pizza slice back onto Hunter’s plate. "Don’t want that slice, doesn’t have any pepperoni on it."
Hunter rolled his eyes and put the slice that was in his hand on Chelsea’s plate. She continued to pick off the slices of pepperoni.
Scene set - later in same evening Cole drove Hunter to the campus library.
Cole debated whether to wait for Hunter to exit and offer to drive him home or just go home. It was a very short debate. Pulling into a far corner of the parking lot, she parked where she could see Hunter exit the library.
By ten thirty, the rhythm of the rain on her car roof was lulling her to sleep. Turning on the window wipers, she peered through the darkness and rain and willed Hunter to walk through the door. When he did, he wasn’t alone. Laughing and running he followed a blonde to her car, got in and they drove away.
"Damn him!" Cole slammed her hands against the steering wheel.
I'm Victoria Adams. I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and pets. Daughter's grown up and is now teaching. I like to garden, cook and study Raqs Sharqi (Egyptian belly dance). In the summer, cars slow down when they pass my front yard and the passengers gaze at my flower beds. Friends love to be invited over for supper as the meal is going to be good, good for you and nowhere near low-calorie! No dieting allowed at dinner parties. As to belly dancing, find a class and try it. It's a blast! Age and weight don't matter. There are many plus size ladies and one 74 yr old grandmother in one of my classes.
I've been writing since I was little. Being an only child, long car rides were filled with making up stories in my head about the people I saw out the car window. When my daughter was younger, I made up stories that she suggested. I'd say – Once upon a time there was a…. She'd shout an answer – chicken! And the story went from there. Great creativity exercise as it turns out. Now, my writing style has taken a split to contemporary romance for adults and contemporary romance for new adults.
