When Hayley makes a resolution to take back the control over her life, and declare their relationship R.I.P, it’s all good in theory…

That is until Daniel decides to prove her wrong and get her back.

Together, Hayley and Daniel seem to have it all. But can love ever be enough when two strong personalities collide and while reality takes the lead?

Faced with more obstacles than she could have ever bargain for when it comes to Daniel, struggling to keep her own identity while sharing a life with her man. Buds of doubt start rooting in Hayley’s confidence, making her rethink her decision.

And just when it seems that they might make it together after all, life happens. Bringing a threat that neither Hayley nor Daniel could ever anticipate, a threat that could break them apart forever . . .

“Best thing that ever happened to you?” I ask Tasha. We need to rescue her from the nonsense currently holding her brain hostage.

“Sorry Ian, no offense,” she says, turning to Ian, “but that would be you, Hales.” I grin at her and peck her cheek only to be given a loud smooch on my lips.

“Sick here,” I say, pointing at myself, warning germs transition.

Ian snickers at our brief display and continues the diversion I’ve initiated. “How about you, Hales?”

“The two of you without a single doubt.”

Tasha gives me a sarcastic look. “Ah, ah. And what about your boy toy?”

“Pfft, totally different story…” I twist my lips. “It’s not like I’m going to marry the two of you…”Whaaaaaa?

“The fuck, Hales?” Ian almost squeals and my hand flies up to cover my delusional mouth.

“And here’s the epitome of a Freudian slip for you…” Tasha murmurs, and snickers.

“It was just a general saying, I didn’t mean like actually the wedding thing, just what it stands for, a metaphor, no one is thinking of… I didn’t mean it like that.” Yeah, that was convincing.

“Yes you did,” Ian says, annoyingly smug, wriggling his eyebrows.

“No. I definitely did not.”

“Yep,” he pops the p. “You totally did.”

“No, really, you guys?” Tasha says, turning from me to Ian and back. “Really?”

“Listen,” I point my finger into the air. “Mistake! If this is ever repeated there will be casualties!” With my finger still up I add, “Massacre, Kill Bill wedding day kind of casualties.”

“Whatevs, psycho.” Ian says, grinning, and I flare my nostrils. When Tasha cracks up, we follow. As our amusement calms I move on to Ian.

“Now you, best thing?”

“My looks!” Tasha and I sneer at him jointly.

“What? C’mon, don’t you think I have this natural, godly beauty?”

“Oh my gawd Ian, you are so grotesquely self-absorbed it’s borderline repulsive,” Tasha shrieks. I love Ian so much, but sometimes I really wish he would drop the mask, just for a little while. At least with us.

“Seriously, you need to be tested. I don’t know for what, but something is definitely wrong.” I add my two cents.

“Or just skip it and enroll directly in Aggressive-Medications -R-Us,” Tasha adds.

“Hales,” Daniel’s husky voice calling me reaches us from within the house.

“Oh, the groom.” Tasha says. I choose to ignore her “witticism”.

“Back here, gorgeous,” Ian shouts back.

“Moron.” I smack his abs in a friendly way.”

“Hey,” Daniel says as he approaches, sending the most adorable side smile my way. I watch him for a brief moment and beam in pleasure. Stubble decorates his square jaw, adding some roughness to his usual up to no good, sexy as hell face. He’s wearing a white button down and faded jeans with a thick black belt. The jeans fit his pelvis in a way that makes me want to crawl over to him and unbuckle that belt with my teeth. He extends his hand for me to take and pulls me up from between my friends. When I’m standing I find myself being lifted into a warm, strong embrace.

“How do you feel, baby?” He asks in a low voice. He plants a supple kiss on my lips. “Much better.” I grin at him, and wrap my hands around his neck. I reach my lips to his mouth for another short taste of their drug.

As Daniel sets me back, his eyes still on mine, Ian distracts us with, “Daniel, what’s the best thing that ever happened to you?”

Are we still on that? Not sure D would be the ultimate social games player.

Daniel’s response comes in a flash. Without even blinking or taking a second to consider, he solemnly says, “Hayley.” The vindication it comes out with leaves me in awe. My eyes shoot up to his, surprised, while my heart expands to an impossible size. I’m afraid it’s about to leave cracks in my ribcage.

“Not your company?” escapes my mouth involuntarily.

His eyes stare pointedly and intently at mine for a charged moment. “No,” he replies firmly. And without any further ado he leads me over to sit on the matching recliner that faces my friends.

From her place at the recliner, behind Daniel’s turned back, Tasha demonstratively circles an imaginary hoop around her ring finger, bobbing her head with a wolfish grin. I shake my head dismissively.

Book One

According to Hayley love is a subject of ridicule, a myth created by hopeless romantics.

When Hayley makes a resolution to declare her loose lifestyle era R.I.P, it’s all good in theory…

That is until she meets Daniel Stark, a well-respected, mid-thirties business man who is known for his short temper, lack of steady relationships as well as his strict preserve of his private life.

Opinionated, sharp tongued Hayley accidently steps into his office leaving Daniel resolved to put Hayley in her place and have her in his bed.

Both Hayley and Daniel can’t avoid the immediate instigation of the attraction between them.

In a unanimously agreed upon verdict by Hayley and her two best friends, Ian the gay self-absorbed, aspiring model and Natasha the witty, borderline neurotic soul mate, Daniel Stark is to be Hayley’s pure physical attraction, emotions aside era closure.

Will it indeed be a closure, or a beginning to something neither Hayley nor Daniel ever bargained for…

By teen age, Sigal already lived in three different continents where she had the luck to experience and visit varied places, meet unique people, which only helped fuel her overly developed imagination. Currently, Sigal calls Estonia home where she lives with her husband and three kids. 

Not exactly sure where they will end up next… 

When she is not hiding in her office, writing, she enjoys music, reading and taking care of her little clan. 

With a great believe in "don’t wait for things to happen - make them happen," she enjoys anything exciting life has to offer.
