✓ Second Chances

✓ Delicious Alpha Male

✓ Mind-Blowing Twists

✓ Gripping, Romantic Suspense

OUR REVIEW:

I absolutely loved this story. It is enthralling suspense wrapped in passionate romance.

“I love the way she looks at me. No one’s ever looked at me like that before. No one other than her.”

Seth is the youngest leader of a crime organization who runs things with stoic power. His only weakness is his feelings for Laura. He knows she could be his downfall, but he could also be a danger to her.

“I swear I must have known this man in another life. He was made for me and I for him, but I don’t want this life.”

The story is captivating and beautifully written. I didn’t want to put my book down from the first page to the last!

“…his voice is gentle. He’s always soft with me. This strong man with rough edges and a past that would frighten most… his tone caresses me.”

Seth and Laura are introduced in a previous series but I have not read it and didn’t feel like I was missing anything.

-4.5 Stars!!-

-Diane-

She was too good for this world. I was too much of a bastard to push her away.

I grew up in this life, and now I run these streets. Blood and violence taint everything I touch.

Everything but her. She was my constant through it all.

Just a touch would singe and soothe.

Just a look would tempt and torment.

She became my escape and my addiction.

I only survived because she was by my side.

I should’ve known better than to indulge.

I should’ve known better than to let her fall for me.

It was only a matter of time before the danger bled into what we had.

I was Laura’s downfall. Problem was, she was mine too

OUR REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Vow We Made is a beautiful, emotional second chance at love story. But sprinkled throughout with humor and heart. It takes place in London and I absolutely adored all the authentic slang!

It has a heroine who has had to overcome a devastating past but finds her strength and so much forgiveness.

“Do you realise every minute I spend with you is the biggest and best part of my existence?”

And Aiden is a swoony hero who puts not only Victoria’s welfare ahead of himself but is so caring of his family, friends and even strangers.

“You’re my hero Aiden. Your humanity amazes me and I’m bowled over by your compassion.”

The path to love is not a straight or easy one for Victoria and Aiden. It is marred with secrets and a few unexpected twists. I fell completely in love with these characters and really hope that this is only the first story featuring this amazing group of friends.

-5 Stars!!-

OUR REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don’t even have words to talk about this book! I was left completely speechless after reading Feast of Sparks. This story is everything mysterious, magical, brooding, haunting and beautiful. But it is also erotic, sensual, kinky and SO HOT. It blends mystery, rituals, and history in a swirl of magic and emotion that just pulled me right into the story from the start and left me floundering at the end wondering how I will survive as I wait impatiently for more of this story.

Blurb:

I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself.  Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

 

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods.  She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart.  And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her.  The only problem?  She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

 

And so do I.

 

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible.  He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing.  The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us. 

 

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

 

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed.  And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes. 

 

And darkness.

Excerpt: 

Shame, hot and prickling, needles everywhere at my face and chest and belly as I begin to bend down to the floor. The cool air that caresses my pussy is now everywhere as the position begins to expose my most secret flesh, and there’s no pretending away the reality of what I’m doing. I’m doing something I’ve never done before, I’m offering up the filthiest part of me for inspection, and despite everything the three of us have shared in the past twenty-four hours, I’m flooded with shame. It’s real shame now, not play-shame, and my safe word floats to the top of my mind, a buoy in the clear waters. 

 

Convivificat. 

 

I don’t want to safe out right now, I’m nowhere near the edge, but it’s nice to have it there all the same. Reassuring. There’s nothing they can do that I can’t stop. 

 

And anyway, this is who I am—who I’ve been growing into ever since I found the words to define it.

#NewRelease JERSEY SIX by Jewel E Ann @JewelE_Ann #BlogTour #5+Stars! #OurReviews #BestTwists #MustRead

#NewRelease JERSEY SIX by Jewel E Ann @JewelE_Ann #BlogTour #5+Stars! #OurReviews #BestTwists #MustRead

“Jewel E. Ann has once again crafted a flawless story that is utterly unique and unforgettable. Hands down my favorite book of 2019!”

— Aly Martinez, USA Today bestselling author 

 

 

OUR REVIEW:

WOWSER!!! I don’t even know what to say after finishing this amazing, mind blowing story! Just when I thought I had figured out the twist, along came another revelation … and then another …

“Truth didn’t live in the light; it hid in the dark, dancing with demons, afraid to be set free, afraid to be seen by judgmental eyes.”

Jersey Six is not your average romance. It’s not even your average JEA romance. It is dark and twisty but still has all of the emotion and angst and of course swoon that I expect from this author’s books.

“The kiss. It always felt right. The only kiss that had ever felt right.

His touch felt familiar. A-million-lifetimes-ago familiar.

They were the perfect kind of wrong.”

Jersey is a heroine unlike any other, so strong, independent, resilient. Every bit of her softness and vulnerability is locked away.

“I’m nothing…” she whispered “…insignificant … forgettable … no one would miss me if I died. No one would look for me if I were lost. No human has ever cried for me.”

Do yourself a favor, grab this book, hide away from the world for a bit and just devour this story. There will be no regrets!

-5+ Stars!-

-Diane-

Excerpt: 

 

“We ate at the hotel.” Her lips twisted to the side. “Mind if I stick some stuff in my bag for later?” 

A tiny wrinkle formed between Ian’s eyes, just below the long sweep of his black bangs. “There will be lots of food available later too. But…” he shrugged, leaning forward and resting his elbows on his knees “…take whatever you want.” 

Jersey glanced over her shoulder at the food and the three other men in the room. She decided to wait a little while before shoving as much as possible into her bag like a free-for-all. “Thanks.” Jersey returned her attention to Ian. “So … you’re a singer. Like … are you a big deal?”

Every word she spoke seemed to feed his level of happiness. “Well …” He rubbed his chin, twisting his lips. “We play music. People like to listen to our music. But no … it’s not a big deal. We’re not saving lives or anything like that.” 

She eyed him with suspicion for a few seconds. That smile of his didn’t feel worthy of complete trust. “Um … what exactly do you need me to do? What’s my job? They already took Chris. Will that big, bearded guy come for me too?” Jersey couldn’t remember his name.

“No.” Ian stood, pushing his elbows out from his shoulders, twisting side to side. “Tonight you are just going to watch the concert from backstage. Tomorrow night you’ll sell merchandise.” 

“Drugs. You mean drugs, don’t you?” 

Ian paused his stretching, letting his arms fall limp to his sides. “Merchandise—T-shirts, posters, keychains, phone cases, hats, guitar pics …”

“To who?” 

“Fans.” Ian grinned. “Okay. I might have understated all of this to you … can you name a famous singer? Old or new. Doesn’t matter. Just a famous singer.” 

“I had a foster parent who used to listen to Josh Groban.” Jersey gnashed her teeth, still feeling so much anger. Dena wasn’t just a foster parent; she was Jersey’s friend. 

“Okay. Well, Josh has sold millions of records, and he’s a huge star in his genre of music. Thousands of people pack venues all over the world to see him sing live in concert. And they sell merchandise of his at those concerts.” 

Jersey gazed unblinkingly at Ian as he scratched his jaw. 

“Well, I sing a different genre of music, but I, too, travel the world, singing to sold-out concert venues, andI have people who sell my merchandise at these concerts.” 

Jersey dropped her bag to her feet and planted her fists on her hips. “Listen, Coop. Stop talking down to me. I’m not an idiot. I know what a concert is. But earlier today you didn’t say what you did or what the job was you were offering. You bought a homeless person a hot dog and offered her a job. Of course, I’m going to think something sketchy might be involved.” 

Tipping her chin up, she held her breath to puff out her chest, pretending the recent revelation of Ian Cooper being a famous singer didn’t faze her one bit. Inside, Jersey’s heart hammered into her ribcage, and her mind reeled trying to figure out the day’s events. 

“Coop?” His lips twitched into a tiny grin. 

“It’s short for Cooper.” 

“Clearly.” Ian chuckled. “But my name is Ian. Everyone calls me Ian.” 

“I busted the nose and jaw of a kid named Ian. He tried to stick his cock in my ass. I’ll call you Tom, Dick, or Harry, but I’m not calling you Ian because that makes me want to physically harm you.” 

Ian’s eyebrows shot up his forehead as his head whipped back a few inches. “Coop it is.”

OUR REVIEW:

What an amazing heroine! When Alice Harris’s job lands her back face to face with her one night stand, sexy South African soccer player Roan DeWalt she tries to keep her distance. She is carrying around a BIG secret that she definitely doesn’t want him to find out.

“He bites his lip and glances down at my chest. “You’re not going to win this battle, Lis. I’m an athlete. We’re made of stronger stuff than most.”

I roll my eyes, annoyed that he has me right where he wants me. Jutting out my chin, I press my finger to his chest and say, “Well, I’m a Harris. You don’t even want to know what we’re made of.”

OH! The ANGST!! From the moment Allie clicks record on that video, my heart was in my throat waiting for the other shoe to drop!!!

This story was one that I wanted to rush through to find out what happens, but it was SO GOOD that I just needed to read slowly and savor every bit of it!!

-5 Stars!!-

-Diane-

BLURB:

ALLIE HARRIS WANTS PAYBACK. 
Her cheating ex deserves to see her living her best life; a one-night-stand with a hot South African soccer player would be the perfect revenge. Right?

THE PROBLEM? 
Allie Harris has a secret; one she’s been keeping from Roan all this time. Video proof of their one night together—taken without his consent.

EXCERPT:

Without warning, my uncle pushes open a set of double doors and leads me into a changing room full of…

Naked. Soccer players. 

Butt naked, wet or sweaty—I can’t quite tell—soccer players. 

I catch sight of one guy flicking a towel at the bare ass of another, so I duck my head and shield my gaze. Good-god, if I’m caught ogling several hanging members being swung about all willy-nilly, I’ll be sure to lose my job! Be cool, Allie. Be cool. You’re one of the guys! And you’ve seen penises before!

I stumble behind Vaughn, who doesn’t miss a step as he continues marching on, walking past loads more of naked soccer players positioned at their lockers. Seriously, why are they all completely naked? Don’t they get cold? I thought shrinkage was a real thing! Nothing in this room is shrunken. Shranked? Whatever…I can’t grammar right now, there’s dicks everywhere! 

Vaughn rounds a corner to another set of lockers and states firmly, “Here we are.” 

I look up just as my high heel catches on something beneath me. I make a move to extract it, but my foot hooks on to whatever it is, holding my leg hostage while my body continues propelling forward. Letting out a yelp, I brace myself for an epic tumble. 

But instead of falling down on the concrete flooring like I thought I would, I end up face planting into a chest. A very manly chest. A very manly, naked chest, whose pecs feel like two smooth boulders tensing beneath my twitching fingers that are currently clinging on for dear life. 

“Ag, careful…That bag’s a biter,” a familiar voice murmurs on the top of my head as two very large hands wrap around my waist. 

I look up and every organ in my body does a somersault as I stare up into the gorgeously pale brown eyes of Roan DeWalt. My one-night-stand. 

Who’s apparently not at all worried about shrinkage.

#BlogTour TIME (Laws of Physics Trilogy #3) by Penny Reid @ReidRomance @Jennw23 #5Stars #OurReviews #MustRead

“Utterly addictive, fascinating, hilarious, and absolutely electric chemistry!”

 Samantha Young, New York Times Bestselling Author

 

New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid’s The Laws of Physics Trilogy is complete with TIME! 

 

 

A (brokenhearted) physicist.

Now an infamous (who is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE!! UGH!) musician.

The worst has already happened. 

 

Mona has learned that she has nothing figured out and plans are meaningless. After leaving her in Aspen, Abram is now breaking sales-records, rising to rock star fame almost overnight. Mona can’t seem to escape him. He is literally everywhere, or at least images of him are.

 

Just when she thinks things can’t get any more confusing, Abram returns . . . What happens next? Only TIME will tell.

 OUR REVIEW:

Time is the third and final book in the Laws of Physics trilogy and my absolute favorite of the series.

I adore Mona in all her quirky amazingness. In TIME, Mona has to really find the path to heal herself. When the truth of her past is fully revealed I felt a powerful personal connection to the story and I think lots of women will also see themselves in Mona.

“It’s damaging for Mona DaVinci to sit quietly and let others dictate her—my—personal life. Then what good have I done? History—the good kind of history—is seldom made by those who keep their head down.”

Abram is SO patient and loving and caring!! I think everyone will want their own Abram to take home and keep!!

“My grin grew because she was smiling at me, her eyes dazed and warm and happy, and I lost myself a little in her gorgeous whiskey gaze. Truly, she was breathtaking.

I could get used to this, making Mona happy on accident, just by being myself.”

This trilogy as a whole is gorgeous and breathtaking with a wonderful epilogue that gives us little sneak peeks at some of our favorite Penny Reid characters like Abram’s sister Marie.

-5+ Stars-

Excerpt: 

 

I wrapped my arms around her body, lifted her off the ground, and kissed her lips. 

She was warm, and soft, and tasted like peppermint and honey. I bit back a groan. 

God, she felt good. Great. Celestial. Heavenly. I may have surprised her, but she responded immediately, enthusiastically, twisting her arms around my neck, opening her mouth and welcoming the invasion of mine. 

It wasn’t enough.

It was a crumb, and I was starving. Desire—to tighten my hold, devour, take, keep, cherish, to never let her go—obscured thought and sight, and I slipped a hand under her shirt to touch the silky skin of her back, sliding my fingers upward until they rested under her bra strap. 

Mona lifted her chin, breaking our mouths apart, and I kissed the point of it, the elegant line of her jaw, the tender spot beneath her ear, the hot skin where Mona’s graceful neck met the slope of her shoulder. I was so hungry for her, I couldn’t stop myself from tasting every exposed inch. 

“Abram,” she said, her voice a breathless, disbelieving whisper, followed by a little laugh. Her fingers flexed at the back of my neck, pressing me closer. Every part of my body hummed and vibrated, unable to contain the immensity of now, of this divine feeling.

“You’re here,” she said, her soft voice full of wonder and happiness, soothing the ravenous panic holding me hostage for the past six days. It had been a peculiar kind of madness, not being able to reach her while pretending all was fine, pretending she didn’t occupy my mind every second of the day. But receding now, it left a new kind of turmoil and urgency in its wake. 

We had no time.

No, I corrected myself, We have time. We have the rest of our lives.

“I need your fu—your phone number.” I spoke gruffly against her neck, squeezing my eyes shut and breathing her in, again and again, the heat and sweetness of Mona. 

I’d missed her, and that was a gross understatement. I’d been speeding toward this moment for days and being with her now felt like the aftermath of a head-on collision. Stupefied, frantic, but determined to enjoy every shared second remaining. My hands were shaking.

We have time. Calm down. Calm down.

Mona laughed lightly, the sound melodic, beautiful, and she pressed a kiss under my ear. “Why didn’t you just ask Leo? Or send me an email?”

Leo.

I worked to keep the darkness of my thoughts from showing on my face as I leaned away, letting her slide to the ground but unwilling to release her fully, fisting my unsteady hands into her T-shirt. “I couldn’t find an email for you anywhere, and neither could Marie. She tried calling your department for me. They told her all media requests had to go through the PR department at the university and it would take two weeks to a month for a response.”

“Ah, that’s true. My email is on lockdown, otherwise it gets out of hand.” She nodded contritely. “But what about Leo?”

“Leo.” I forced my jaw to relax and I lowered my voice but couldn’t completely disguise the intensity of my wrath. “Leo wouldn’t give me your number.”

Mona’s hand moved to my face, her palm pressed against my cheek, the pads of her fingers softly stroking my beard. “What? Are you serious?” 

“Yes,” I ground out. “He said he was doing me a favor. So I flew to LA.”

“You flew to LA?” I felt her body tense, and the moment realization dawned, her beautiful eyes growing impossibly large as they moved over my face. “You must be so tired and—but I wasn’t in LA, I was—”

“Here. Yes. I found that out yesterday when I stopped by your department at Caltech and they told me you weren’t due back until Friday,” I rushed to explain, multitasking, using the time to devour the sight of her, soak and submerge in the reality of being here with her.

Calm down. We. Have. Time.

How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be?

 

Title: The Magnolia Chronicles: Adventures in Modern Dating

🌸 OUR REVIEW 🌸

Magnolia Chronicles is funny and quirky and sexy and swoony and heart wrenching and thoughtful. It is everything!

The story is a complete standalone but I loved the tiny glimpses of my favorite Walsh family members. Magnolia was introduced in a previous book but I loved getting to know her and see inside her thoughts.

“I was wandering and foolish and missed out on everything.

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever catch up. If I’ll ever get my turn.” I swiped a tear off my cheek. “But I’m not betting on horses anymore, Mom. I’m betting on myself now.”

Magnolia Chronicles is subtitled Adventures in Modern Dating and I can tell you Magnolia’s dating adventures are hilariously entertaining! But I am not laughing at her, I am a bit in love with this heroine who smiles even when she is unable to hide her flaws as much as she tries.

-5 Stars!-

🌸 BLURB 🌸

My mother’s New Year’s resolution for me was simple: make a serious effort at putting myself out there and dating again, anddo it for one full year.

Or until I fell in love. Whichever came first. 

How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be? 

In a word: bad. 

In nine words: bad and also hilarious, demoralizing, exhausting, and ridiculously amusing. 

But the only thing worse than dating in the era of hookup apps and unsolicited dick pics is the absolute whole-life-flail of falling in love.

🌸 AUTHOR BIO 🌸

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbaryand the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

#NewRelease DANGEROUS BEAUTY by J.T. Geissinger @JTGeissinger #Romance #RomanticSuspense #MustRead #NetGalley

💥💥‼️AVAILABLE NOW‼️💥💥

A beautiful fugitive. A hot bodyguard. A high-stakes game of temptation.

For Nasir, former Special Ops military man and bodyguard, his new job seems like an easy-money gig: trail a Russian mobster’s runaway wife in Mexico, enjoy the sun, observe, and report. Just one rule: don’t get too close. But it’s all Naz can do not to watch the alluring dancer’s every move. A closer look is irresistible—especially when she’s in trouble.

Evalina escaped to the island getaway to live an untraceable life—as far away from the past as she can get. But Eva can’t ignore the dark, muscled stud who rescues her from a drug gang. He says he’s an ex-cop on vacation. When providence throws them together time and again, Eva thinks it’s all a beautiful coincidence. Now she’s giving in to a strange new sensation: trust.

But Naz has a mission to accomplish and a secret to keep. Eva has her share of secrets, too. And as the heat flares between them, Naz knows that trust could become the most dangerous impulse of all.

OUR REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dangerous Beauty is book one in a series and although it ends in a fairly dramatic cliffy, It is a complete story and really worth reading right away. It is a book that I will look forward to rereading.

“I blow out a shaky breath and close my eyes. “I won’t let my fear make the decisions.”

With exquisite tenderness, Naz brushes his lips against my temple. He whispers into my ear, “And that—my sweet, brave, beautiful girl—is the definition of courage.”

Naz is an ex-military man hired to trail the runaway wife of a Russian mobster. As soon as we meet his target, Eva, we realize that things are not cut and dried. Eva is an amazing strong and resilient heroine and I fell in love with her as quickly as Naz does!!

“Survival is simply the art of suffering gracefully when we’re up against forces out of our control.”

I loved the suspense of Dangerous Beauty. It had me on the edge of my seat but always softened by the humor sprinkled throughout the story.

-5 Stars!-

OUR REVIEW: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

A Lesson In Thorns is a magical and mysterious story that had me wanting to rush through and uncover all of the mystery and at the same time wanting to read as slowly as possible and just revel in the beautiful phrasing and imagery.

“…this whole place is cloistered in a strange, timeless little bubble? Like a Sarah Waters novel but with pizza delivery?”

The story begins with six children discovering a hidden path at the center of a maze which leads to a crumbling chapel. Twelve years later in the midst of renovations the six are together again and the strange connection and call to the place and each other has only become stronger in the passing years.

“…pretend he’s not unraveling. Pretend he isn’t growing a tree of thorns inside his chest and that those thorns don’t have names.”

A Lesson In Thorns is a beautiful story that definitely had my insides burning up with the completely erotic storytelling.

-4 Stars!-

-Diane-

Blurb:

Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.  

The heir.
The dreamer.
The priest.
The genius.
The socialite.
The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.
I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth. 

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain.  Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

#BlogTour #NewRelease SPACE (Laws of Physics #2) by Penny Reid @ReidRomance @jennw23 #angsty #cliffy #mustread #favoriteauthors

Space, the second book in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Timesbestselling author Penny Reid, is available now! 

 

OUR REVIEW:

Space is the second book in the Laws of Physics series and this one is an absolute angst-fest!!

After the fairly evil cliffhanger ending of Motion, book one, I was thrilled that Mona and Abram found themselves forced to be in the same place again after a 2 year separation.

“I need someone to listen to my heart.” His face inched closer. “And it only wants to beat for you.”

Mona is trying to be as honest as possible to Abram and herself but honesty can be so painful. There is so much feeling and emotion between these characters that I just felt my own heart aching for them. I was prepared for a cliffy ending but that didn’t make it any easier to find myself on the last page and wanting so much more. Now I NEED Time!!

-4.5 Stars!-

-Diane-

One week.

Private cabin.

Famous physicist.

Still an unrepentant slacker.

What’s the worst that could happen?

 

Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again. Abram still makes her feel entirely too much, which is one of the reasons she disappeared after their one week together. But now, trapped on a mountain of snow and things unspoken, Mona will have to find a way to coexist with Abram, chaos and all.

 

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

Excerpt: 

 

“Hi—hello,” she said, stepping forward but not out of the way, drawing my attention. 

She was still staring at me, her face still pale, but her eyes had turned searching instead of stunned.

“I—” She stopped herself, swallowing, her gaze dropping to the front of my coat, a cute little frown furrowing her eyebrows. In the next moment, she was pulling off the glove of her right hand. Abruptly, she shoved the ungloved fingers toward me, returning her eyes to mine. “I’m Mona.”

I suppressed my disbelief at her small action before it could break my outward mask of calm. I wasn’t calm. Just to be clear, I was the opposite of calm.

The fact that she was introducing herself to me now meant that she thought I was too stupid to figure out her lies over the last two-and-a-half-fucking years. She was arguably one of the smartest people in the world, after all. To her, people like me must seem like housebroken pets. So it shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. The tension and tightness around my ribs reappeared, squeezing uncomfortably.

Dropping my attention to her bare hand, I pressed my lips into a tighter line, dismissing the way my pulse jumped at the sight of her wrist, the olive tone of her skin under the yellow string lights overhead. Glaring at her outstretched offering, I considered telling her to go to hell.

I considered it, but I wouldn’t.

I didn’t trust myself to speak, that was reason number one.

The other reason was harder to explain, or use as a justification, or admit to myself. Staring at her hand, I braced against a sudden flare of hunger. She might consider me a lower life-form, but that didn’t change the fact that I wanted to touch her. I wanted to touch her more than I wanted to tell her to go to hell, and that was fucking pitiful.

But there it was.

Acting on the compulsion, I lifted my right hand and tugged off the ski glove, sliding my warm palm against her much colder one. Her hand felt good in my hand, the right weight, the right size, the right texture, and I inhaled freezing air.

Mona also seemed to suck in a slow but expansive breath as our hands touched, held. This brought my eyes back to hers in time to see her lashes flutter. Pink colored her previously pale cheeks. The sound of the wailing wind, the sting of the air and frost momentarily melted away, leaving just her, her soft skin warming against mine, her beautiful face filling my vision.

So beautiful.

She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.
