I wanted one thing—to never fall in love again. But the universe had other plans. One look into Tom Wright’s olive-green eyes, and I free-fell crazy in love with the one man destined to break my heart. I know, because I’ve yet to learn my lesson. The past never dies, and mine is ready to rear its ugly head. Question is, will I be strong enough to survive the fallout?
She wasn’t supposed to happen. I’d vowed to never let anyone in, but with one curve of her lips, Sara Hart bulldozed through my heart. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, yet scared as hell of how much I love her. Despite my best intentions, I haven’t been one-hundred percent honest. My biggest torment still lurks within, threatening to unwind the strings holding us together. And if I lose her now, it might as well be the end of me.
He settled a curious gaze over me, his features softening. “Why are you so intent on us going, anyway? Aren’t you at least a bit nervous about meeting my mother?” he asked.
“This weekend is not about me either.”
He took my hand and pulled me onto his lap. I snaked an arm around his neck while he held on to me. “I’m bringing a girl home,” he said, nudging my nose with his. “It’s one hundred percent about you.”
Resting my head on his shoulder, I played with his tie. “You think she’ll like me?”
“She’s gonna love you.”
Pulling on his black tie, I brought his lips closer to mine. After the emotional start to the day, followed by another fruitless job hunt, I needed his comfort. “I missed you today.”
“Hmm, is that so?” he replied, his voice bouncy with roguishness, reminding me of the sparkle that lit up in his eyes when he wanted to play. “Didn’t we just see each other this morning?” he asked.
“Well, I don’t like spending a second without you.” I leaned in for an innocent kiss, but at the feel of his hot breath on me, my insides lit up like a raging pyre.
His tongue licked the seam of my lips, urging me to let him in. I obliged, allowing him to claim my mouth with his hunger. Without hesitation, I repositioned myself, straddling him, pushing myself into his body as my legs slid through the slits of his armchair.
REAL LOVE AS IT IS. MESSY. COMPLICATED. AND SINFULLY ADDICTIVE.
