The following is an excerpt from Jilted Again, enjoy:
This young woman would be the perfect wife.
Noelle Fournier was lovely, poised, well spoken, and according to her paperwork, he thought she might be single. Dmitri Orlov felt an urge to smile at how easy it would be to capture her.
“Can you read the chart from top to bottom?” She read it clearly, loudly, and with a hint of something exotic in the inflection of her voice. Her posture was straight as an arrow.
It was time for him to marry. Why not her?
Noelle had decided to see Dr. Orlov for her eye exam after hearing his radio ads every morning and evening on her drive to and from work. She liked his voice.
Had she known when she walked into his office that he was going to be a late-thirties, sapphire-eyed, stunner of a man, she probably would have dressed differently.
When she caught sight of him in the waiting room, she’d been shocked. With a small gasp, she did a once-over of her outfit and decided she had unknowingly captured sexy without the dash of slutty her younger self might have attempted to add.
Throughout his standard questions about her medical history, he maintained eye contact. She had to wonder if it was just her or if he gave this level of intensity to all his patients.
When he’d darkened the room and rolled a stool immediately in front of her, she noted how good he smelled. If she wasn’t mistaken, he was wearing the barest amount of Tom Ford Noir, her favorite men’s cologne.
Yeah, he was hitting all her personal triggers. She wondered how easy it would be to get his attention.
Please don’t let him be gay. With her losing streak, he was more than likely happily married to the man of his dreams. Worse would be if he was straight but seriously minded the fact that she was a size sixteen.
“Ms. Fournier, are you aware you have a slight astigmatism?” His voice on the radio had been sexy. His voice in person, in a darkened room, mere inches from her was almost more than she could handle.
She cleared her throat, embarrassed. “No. I wasn’t. My eyes started to hurt after my contacts were in for only a couple of hours. I figured I should come in for an eye exam before I couldn’t spend my usual endless hours in front of the computer screen.”
He nodded and stood to turn on the lights. Noelle blinked at the sudden brightness and sat back from the exam equipment. Her posture, always perfect as drilled into her brain by her mother, highlighted her generous cleavage for his viewing pleasure.
The moment his eyes dipped, she noticed and high-fived herself mentally. Most men, no matter their personal “type” could avoid appreciation of her girls.
He flashed her a brilliant smile that showed her his straight, white teeth. “Other than that and the nearsightedness, which I have as well, your eyes are in excellent health. Overall, you’re just about perfect.”
The last part was murmured under his breath and he turned to finish writing up her exam results.
“Miss Fournier or is it Mrs. Fournier?” he asked while still scrawling away, facing away from her.
“It’s miss. As in never married.” Noelle hadn’t intended to sound so eager when she replied.
“Miss Fournier. Would you like to go to dinner on Saturday?” He asked the question as if he wanted to borrow a pen.

A wonderful and entertaining story! I had a hard time putting it down. Noelle was dumped just before her wedding four years ago. She's filly ready You immediately fall in love with the main character. She's cute and quirky and a little desperate in her biggest goal in life - to get married. Noelle can be frustrating at times, so focused on her one goal that she misses the obvious and you just want to grab her and yell at her to open her eyes! Noelle has dreamed of being a bride all of her life, but five years ago she was unceremoniously left at the alter. Now she has met and been engaged to Dr Dmitri Orlov, but on their wedding day he drops a bomb on her. Telling her his heart belongs to another, someone Noelle trusted and never hour would hurt her. Dr. Dimitri an uncommitted successful doctor, who is used to playing the field. Once he had been in love but had his heart ripped out. Now he feels as though he's at that point in his life where he isn't getting any younger and now he wants a wife and probably a family. But then there is Emilio… Noelle's best friend. Emilio who would take whatever Noelle was willing to give. The author did an amazing job of making every character come to life, regardless of how big or small their role in the story is. These characters are easy to love and hate, root for and root against (depending on the characters purpose) A.Anderson really does a terrific job of drawing you into the story. One thing I loved about this book was that Noelle was not perfect, she was someone every reader can connect with, someone relatable. I can't believe I've never read this author before, I will defiantly be buying more books from this author! Read this book and you will not be disappointed one bit! Rating 5 out of 5 stars!
I felt this book was very good. Its the story of a woman looking for love and marriage. She has some struggles with finding the right man. Her family tries to help in some odd ways (just my opinion). It is written well and the characters are well thought out. It is a romance.
2.5-3 stars Too many WTH moments. I wanted to love Noelle but ended up wanting to shake her! How do you have a life long friend and NEVER take him seriously? I did love Emilio and the ending was fun.
This book was given to Book Worms as an ARC for an honest review. We gave this book 5 stars. This review was left by Rachel Hicks a Book Worms Reviewer. Thank you Rachel. This was a great book. The author did a great job at describing each character in the book no matter how big of a part they had. This book is filled with a lot of emotion from all of the characters. I found myself wanting to crawl into the pages and scream "wake up" at Noelle on occasion. I couldn't put it down though, I needed to know what was going to happen next. I am excited to read more from this author. Noelle is a planner. Everything in her life is planned to a t. She knows what she wants and knows exactly what she has to do to get it.
