Excerpt:

Chaos.

 

Utter. Total. Chaos.

 

I’m trying my best not to scream. Screaming would be stupid. Extraordinarily stupid now that the boys have settled down.

 

I’ve held down the fort on my own in LA for six full days. The longest motherfucking days of my entire life. The nanny Kris found quit on day two, despite my offer to double and then triple her pay. She met someone and is off to Europe, leaving me high and dry.

 

With me, myself and I to rely on, there’s no choice but to take up swearing like a sailor. It’s not on brand, I’m America’s fucking sweetheart after all. I don’t give two shits. Connor’s in Seattle for at least another week to attend a band meeting after he’s been there helping out after his father’s stroke. I haven’t had time to even think about posting an ad for a nanny.

 

Cussing’s the one thing getting me through the day.

 

I flop down on my unmade bed. Close my eyes so I can’t see my surroundings. The entire house is in shambles. I have food stuck in my hair. My breasts are leaking. I’m a flabby, out-of-shape blob. I’m starving, but too tired to eat. My gel manicure is peeling. To add insult to injury, my period came back today. The one-of-a-kind custom pearl-gray sofa I commissioned is ruined. I bled through onto it when I was napping with Torin splayed out across my chest.

 

The bubble has burst. This is not what I signed up for. My life, as I once knew it, is over.

 

God, what I’d give to turn back the clock.

 

Instantly, I feel sick I’d even have that thought. My babies are my world. I love them desperately. It’s just—the day-to-day is so friggin’ hard. It’s all I can do not to sob.

 

My phone lights up. Connor. I accept the call, grab the baby monitor and crawl under the covers. The quicker the call, the faster I can grab a couple of hours sleep. “Hey.”

 

“Are things any better? I haven’t heard from you all day.” Connor “Are things any better? I haven’t heard from you all day.” Connor squinches his eyebrows together. He looks pale. Disheveled. Exhausted.

 

I shake my head. Bite my lip. He has enough on his plate without me adding to it. “No, I’m hoping Kris can let me borrow her admin for a day or two. At least set up some interviews.”

 

“I wish you’d reconsider bringing everyone up here. At least we’d be together.” Connor’s amber eyes are sad. I know he’s crushed at missing time with his sons.

 

I sigh. We’ve had this conversation a million times. My gut reaction is to refuse. My career has been on hold for too long. He’s the one who unilaterally decided to go to Seattle before we had a plan. Or a nanny. Or help.
