Still Counting (paperback) by Phil Fragasso

(about this author)

  • Adam Donatello and Nina Morales share an immediate and powerful attraction, and their future together seems assured. But love is difficult enough without adding complications—real or imagined—to the mix. Nina sees life as a thousand shades of gray, while Adam tends toward black-and-white. He wants to move fast; she needs time. Nina sees her past liaisons with women as immaterial to their relationship, while her disclosure drives Adam to a state of irrational jealousy. He doesn't know how he could compete with a woman, and his suspicions—which Nina views as hypocritical—lead them both to make decisions they may live to regret.

    Excerpt:

    Nina alternately inhaled the daisies’ fragrance and pressed them to her chest. I’ve been a romantic fool my whole life, and I was hoping I’d found a kindred spirit. Up to that point, Casey was the closest thing I’d ever come to true love, and that was not how I wanted to spend my life.
    I was on Memorial Drive and took an exit to cross the river to the Boston side.
    “So you’re taking me to the big city?” Nina asked.
    “Perhaps.”
    “Come on, Adam. Tell me where we’re going.”
    “Why, you getting worried?”
    “Not at all. I just have a lot of allergies and I don’t want it to be embarrassing for you if I puke at the dinner table.”
    “Shit. I never even thought of that.” My chest tightened and I turned toward Nina with narrowed eyes. “What kind of allergies do you have?”
    “Well for starters,” she said, “red meat gives me the runs. Chicken makes my tongue swell up like a python that’s just swallowed a piglet. Which reminds me—pork makes me gassier than the farting scene in Blazing Saddles. I’m okay with most seafood as long as it’s from the Mediterranean or Indian Ocean. The doctors aren’t quite sure why that is. Vegetables are okay but they have to be grown hydroponically. I also get severe cramps from dairy products. But, oddly enough, I’m fine with gluten and peanuts. Go figure.”
    “Holy shit. How long have you been living like this?”
    “For never.” Nina tossed her hair back and filled the car with a cackle of unabashed joy. “I just like messing with you. You’re always so serious looking.”
