Water running down his chest.
Hair slicked back from his face.
That stormy look in his eyes.
And the rock, hard…
Ahem, anyway. No, I did not have a thing for him. We were friends. That was it. No one needed to know I still dreamed about what would have happened if I’d closed that door with me on the inside instead of the outside. It was never going to happen.
But he was serious about turning down a date with someone else because we had plans. He picked me up, talked to my friends, and checked in on me all night. Like a date. And that good night kiss?
There was nothing friendly about that.
He kissed like a man who knew exactly what he wanted. And me? I couldn’t deny I wanted the same thing. I just hoped I wasn’t going to get hurt letting him in.
So what if my ex thinks I’m fat? He doesn’t know what he’s missing. But I joined a gym and I’m going to show him.
First step, ignore the sexy and intense owner of my new gym. He intrigues and intimidates me at the same time. The way he watches me makes me wonder if he’s trying to find a way to kick me out. I can’t handle another guy rejecting me because of my curves. Then he throws out other clients for making me feel like crap.
And kisses me.
He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. He’s strong and silent and a whole lot of alpha. Maybe a little too much for me. He gives me confidence and defends me and makes me believe I can do anything.
I’ve never felt this way. That’s good though, right?
Jade Roberts’s love for Talon Steel is the real deal, and she’s more determined than ever to help him come to grips with whatever is haunting him. To that end, she continues her investigation of the Steels…and unknowingly attracts some dangerous foes from their shrouded history.
Talon loves Jade deeply and longs to possess her forever, so he faces his worst fears and exposes his rawest wounds in an attempt to heal. The road is icy and treacherous, but if he perseveres and comes out whole on the other side, he’ll finally be worthy of Jade’s love.
The untamed passion between the two still blazes, but as the horrors of Talon’s past resurface, Jade and Talon aren’t safe…
It was supposed to be an anonymous fling with a stranger. Yeah, I knew sneaking away with him at a party a friend was throwing was risky, but he was impossible to resist. Too bad he was also my new boss.
Working side-by-side with Drew was definitely not a harship. We clicked, and the close quarters and long hours made resisting him impossible. We thought we were being sneaky, until his mother caught us getting a little too close.
She wanted him with his ex, and I didn’t measure up. I didn’t care. Not really. Not until his perfect ex walked in, and he forgot I existed.
