That’s exactly what the barista with the espresso-colored eyes did. She made me a latte with almond milk instead of the nut-free vanilla latte I ordered, putting her job—and my life—on the line.
If that wasn’t bad enough, she has no idea who I am. Me. Aiden Winchester. Hollywood heartthrob, son of cinematic royalty, and soon-to-be—hopefully—a Broadway star.
The next time I ran into my would-be assassin—literally—she reamed me out for not watching where I was going.
What did I do? I apologized and invited her to dinner.
Now she thinks I’m a struggling nobody when the only thing I am struggling with is not falling in love with the beautiful barista who served me a deadly drink and proving my feelings for her aren’t just an act.
Love, Lies, and Lattes was originally released as Broadway Beans.
