Book Extras: Introducing Jason & Kelly

22-year-old Kelly works with Ally at Westerly’s, a coach tour company. If they were characters in a comic book, Kelly would be Ally’s arch-enemy. Kelly has everything Ally wants; fun, freedom and youth. Kelly is free to have fun without the deafening ticking of her biological clock getting in the way and doesn’t take life too seriously. She has an active social life, which she amuses their colleagues with on a regular basis.

Ally’s colleague strode into the room wearing a tiny black skirt and a silky red blouse. Ally counted the buttons that were actually fastened – three – before averting her gaze. Of all the things Ally didn’t want to see that morning, Kelly’s black lacy bra was in the top three.

HR manager Jason is Ally and Kelly’s boss – and he’s pretty hot too. Ally has a silly work crush on Jason and while she knows nothing will ever happen between them, it doesn’t hurt to admire the view every now and then. Jason is a bit of a ladies man and is currently enjoying a casual fling with Kelly, a fact that incenses Ally. Kelly really does have everything going for her.

Jason had crossed the office and was holding Kelly’s hand in his, stroking a finger along the bandage. Ally would sprain her wrist too if it meant Jason would hold her hand with such tenderness, but then Ally wasn’t enjoying a supposedly secret fling with the gorgeous Jason.

But appearances can be deceptive. When Ally’s birthday wish is granted and she infiltrates their world, she soon sees a different side to her colleagues...

Be careful what you wish for...

Ally Richmond is dreading turning thirty and bidding farewell to her youth. And when her husband says he wants to start a family, she begins to panic.

Is this all that life has to offer from now on? Popping out babies and growing old gracefully? She wants a life crammed with glamour and spontaneous adventure, not one full of dirty nappies and night feeds.

When Ally makes a silly birthday wish for a new, exciting life, her wish is granted.

But when Ally is presented with the freedom and opportunities she craves, she soon realises this new life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and that there really is no place like home. But can she find her way back - or is she stuck in this new reality forever?
