Overview

The Jamison saga continues…Foolish Pride is a 40 page 'extra peek' story that takes place at the same time as There's Only Been You.

When God was handing out out pride, Danny Jamison must have gotten in line twice, because he's about to let the best thing that's ever happened to him slip away—Emily Harris.

Emily is head-over-heels in love with Danny, but she's not sure she can take his jealous mood swings anymore. Something has to give or his Foolish Pride is going to be the end of them.

* * *
“I’d be more than happy to take over for you.”

Emily squealed and sat up in a rush, splashing water all over the floor. When she realized it was Danny leaning against the doorframe, she threw the wet washcloth at him. “Dammit, you scared me half to death!”

He pushed away from the door and strode forward. “Sorry. I knocked, but you had Metallica blaring so loud you couldn’t hear me.”

“I find Metallica extremely relaxing!” she snapped. “Now give me back my key and get the hell out of my apartment.” She held out her hand.

Danny knelt beside the tub, but instead of handing her the key he brushed his knuckles down her cheek. “Look, Em, I know you’re royally pissed at me right now, but if you’d just give me a chance to explain, I—”

“Are you kidding me? ‘Royally pissed’ doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel.” Suddenly more angry than upset, she crossed her arms over her breasts and brought her knees up in an effort to preserve a little modesty. Which she knew was ridiculous since they’d been sleeping together for more than a year.

“You have no idea how sorry I am for what I said. It was completely inexcusable. But...if you could just give me one more chance...” He grabbed her hand and brought it to his lips, holding it against his cheek as he said, his voice raw with emotion, “Em, I love you. And I know you love me, too.”

Her eyes filled with tears. Damn him! Now? He waits until things are over between them to finally say those three little words she’d been waiting so patiently to hear him say? But...as much as she wanted to believe him, she couldn’t, she just couldn’t.

She jerked her hand from his. “I’m sorry, too, Danny, but I can’t do this anymore. Your jealousy has gotten crazy lately and that temper...sometimes I’m afraid...”

Shock twisted his face into a mask of incredulity. “My God, I would never hurt you. How could you even think—”

“I don’t know! That’s the problem. It’s like I have no idea who you are anymore. You’re angry all the time, you’ve become so possessive.” She reached up to swipe at her eyes. “It seems like the only time you’re in a good mood anymore is when we’re in bed.”

“Then let’s crawl in bed right now and stay there forever.”

“Danny, please, just go. I can’t do this right now. Please.”

With a deep sigh, he pushed to his feet, head hung low, and turned to leave. Looking back over his shoulder, he said, “Fine, I’ll leave. Give you a couple days to get over your anger. But eventually we’re going to talk about this. Because there’s no way in hell I’m just going to just let you go.”

    Good short story!

    Ms. Rogers has penned this short story to be packed with such heartfelt emotions that you just can't help but hope that Danny and Emily can work through their issues together. At first I hated Danny and everything he stood for. He had no right constantly accusing Emily of cheating on him just because he was an immature guy with plenty of insecurity issues that he was dealing with. I have to be honest and say that it took me a bit of time to even warm up to him because he was just too immature for my taste and I felt that Emily needed to stick to her guns with him. She needed a mature man in her life and not an ignorant boy as her partner. If you're looking for a short read that will help you escape your busy schedule for a little while, than you have found the perfect story to do just that!

    Good but very similar to book 1

    Ok. I like the idea of two people who love each getting twisted by nasty gitl and dumb pawn. But two books in a row? Also if one advertises a 40 page story they shouldn't be surprised when readers are irritated at 28 pages and previews.

    Good teen book

    This is a good book for teens to see how little things can have an impact on lots of people. Good story line to make you think about people's actions rather good or bad.

    Aubu1964
    I started this novel on Wednesday September 12th 2012
    Gina was Emily's best friend but one time Gina was seeing Danny and Emily was upset at her. So now she was not talking to Gina. But one night Gina went over to Emily's apartment with Rob and Gina.. They had left the apartment. Danny brought Gina home that night and then Danny went to a bar to drink again that night. Emily took the next day off to talk to Sarah to talk to Danny. Danny never had showed up on a Monday night. Danny was a jealous boyfriend. Emily told him it was all her ex boyfriend and her best friend playing games with Danny not Emily. So they had supper that night and they were doing this dishes. Danny and Emily went to Sarah's and Gina and her cousin Shayle was their too. And Danny had moved in with Shayle for two weeks and then moved out. Danny had asked Emily to marry her and she said YES. Yes she will marry Danny. I enjoyed this novel very much ShelleyMA

    Good!!

    I wasnt crazy about the 1st part of this story. I dont care for it when a man (or anyone for that matter) is verbally abusive, but as the story unfolded I seen why he was so upset. This story is very well written & entertaining. I highly recommend anyone reading this!!

    Book

    70 pages or so. I felt like I was in the middle of a book that might have been ok. Unfortunately, there was no beginning or end ... or really much middle to get excited about.

    Just too short

    The book had a lot of room for character and story line development. Just seemed like there was so much story to be told.

    I really enjoyed this cute short story. It was not long enough to justify paying for it but as a free book I thought it was good.
