THE GENIUS

Sophie WARD is a scientist with the looks of a geek and the fantasies of a hot-blooded siren. She’s wanted security expert Chris Riley from the moment he first came to work at the Blackwood Research Institute that houses her lab. And the more she’s gotten to know the gorgeous bad boy, the more she’s fallen into lust with him. But despite the encouragement of her best friend, Sophie has never had the guts to ask him out. Until the day a fateful fortune cookie sets the ball rolling….

THE HUNK

Chris RILEY is a man who knows what he wants…and it’s Sophie Ward. But circumstances have kept them apart for too long, and now his need for the adorable scientist is at the breaking point. She’s so shy, there’s no telling how she might react to the things he wants from her. Hell, she could even turn him in for sexual harassment. But none of that is enough to keep Chris from hungering for Sophie, and his patience is running thin….

THE MOMENT

When a mishap finally brings their mutual attraction out into the open, the scorching intensity of their desire is enough to burn them to ash. But will they be able to make something of the wreckage when Chris’s past rears its ugly head? Or will they lose the best thing they’ve ever found?

 

Chapter 1

 

Fortune cookies could be such a bitch.

Then again, so could best friends. Especially ones who were determined to make you go for your dreams, no matter how much of a loser you felt like for even having them.

As a heartfelt sigh slipped past her lips, Sophie Ward slumped back against the padded booth in her favorite Chinese restaurant in downtown San Diego, the remnants of her crumbled cookie forgotten as she looked across the table at her best friend, Natalie Richards. Nat’s red hair shone bright beneath the paper lantern light suspended above their booth, her dark eyes narrowed with determination. “I mean it, Soph. I am done with your waffling bullshit. You need to make your move before one of those leeches in your lab manages to sink their claws into him.”

“Leeches are suckers, not clawers,” she murmured with a smirk.

Nat didn’t even crack a smile. “You know what I mean, smart ass. You need to stop dreaming, and start doing.”

With a frustrated groan, she lowered her gaze back to the wrinkled fortune she’d dropped on the table. Today is the day to take what you want.

Sophie would have loved to have the courage to do just that, and she probably would have, if she looked like Nat. Like a freaking forties starlet. Instead, she was tiny to the point of petite, with boring brown hair and brown eyes and stupid freckles on her pale, impish nose. She looked like…like, well, like the nerdy scientist that she was. A pixie-sized tomboy with a brain. Whereas the object of her intense, frustrating, angst-ridden office crush was the most rugged, masculine, insanely sexy-assed man she’d ever seen or met or even read about. Chris Riley did it for her in so many ways it wasn’t even funny—and yet, despite the lust that probably glazed her eyes whenever she looked at him, they were that dreaded B word: buddies. The kind who sat in the twenty-fifth floor employee café together at the world-renowned Blackwood Research Institute—where she worked in one of the specialized labs and he held the prestigious position of Chief of Security—talking sports and movies while they shared their morning and afternoon coffee breaks.

Considering the number of times they’d sat at one of the café tables near its wall of windows and just chatted in the four months since he’d taken the position at the institute, the guy had had more than enough opportunities to take his shot with Sophie if he was interested. Which meant that he wasn’t. Not even a little. Not even on a subatomic level. Hell, he’d never even tried to meet up with her outside of work. The only reason he had her phone number was because he sometimes texted her if he was going to be late or miss his coffee break.

Reaching for her diet cola, she took a long swallow, wishing like crazy it were an oversized margarita instead. But she had to be back in her lab in the next twenty minutes, which meant there would be no “liquid courage” for her today.

Setting her glass back down, she glared at Natalie. “Why are you so determined I make a fool of myself, anyway? I mean, aren’t you the same woman who sat here for the last half-hour complaining about all the cheating guys you watch traipsing in and out of Manolo’s every week?”

Going to San Diego State during the day for her business degree, Natalie worked nights at the popular Del Mar Beach restaurant as a bartender to pay the bills. She was kickass at her job, but her faith in healthy, committed relationships was rapidly dwindling thanks to the things she witnessed there on a regular basis. So for the moment, Nat had sworn off men and was glad to be single. But for some hare-brained reason, the instant Sophie had read her fortune out loud, Nat had decided it was a “sign” that Sophie’s own personal life needed a swift kick in the backside. And her best friend knew precisely who had been playing front and center in Sophie’s fantasies.

Crossing her arms on the table, Nat leaned forward and answered the question. “I’ll tell you why I’m so determined, Soph. Because I don’t think that’s what would happen if you asked Chris Riley out on a date. I think that sexy stud would jump at the chance to go out with you.”

Sophie snorted. “And you think this bizarre piece of nonsense why?”

Nat slammed her palms down on the table so loudly that it made Sophie and just about everyone else in the restaurant jump. “Because it’s not nonsense! Chris Riley isn’t like that asshole group of jocks you went to school with. Yeah, they acted like jerks and made shitty comments about you, but that’s because they were intimidated as hell by you, Soph. The issues were theirs, not yours. Chris is a grown man and he’s your friend. And just because you can’t see what a cute piece of ass you are doesn’t mean that he can’t!”

Oh, man. It was crazy, how badly she wanted to believe that. But it wasn’t true. Despite what Nat had said about the jerks she’d had trouble with at school, it was just one of those fundamental rules in the battle between the sexes. Guys like Chris Riley were never attracted to girls like her. The hunky ex-jock never fell for the geeky smart chick unless it was in some blockbuster rom-com that gave women unrealistic expectations and dreams.

And yet, she knew there was more to Chris than just a gorgeous face, killer body and successful career. More than anything in the world, she wished he could see that there was more to her, as well. That beneath her quirky exterior was a hot-blooded woman who needed him so badly it was slowly driving her insane.

She drummed her short nails on the table and lifted an eyebrow. “If that were true, guys would be beating my door down, Nat. I wouldn’t be two years without a single date.”

Natalie cocked her head to the side, the look in her eyes as soft as it was apologetic. “As much as I hate to say it, Soph, that’s not really their fault these days. It’s yours. Guys, even the gorgeous ones, don’t like to be shot down. And you don’t exactly put the message out there that you’re available.”

She flinched, both hating and loving that her best friend understood her so well. “I’m not a bitch.”

“I know that, honey.” Nat gave her a wry grin. “But you are gun shy when it comes to hot, alpha males.”

Lifting her chin, she said, “I have lots of hot guy friends at work.” Including Chris—which sucked—since she wanted so much more from him.

“That’s different. You’re as sweet as pie when thinking some drool-worthy hunk wants nothing more than to pal around with you. But the second he shows even a glimmer of interest, you freak.”

Knowing damn well that Nat was right, Sophie lowered her head and started to bang it softly against the table. “I’m an idiot,” she groaned, wincing as a bit of the damn fortune cookie jammed into her forehead.

“You’re not an idiot,” Natalie protested, looking as if she were trying hard not to laugh as Sophie lifted her head and started brushing cookie bits off her face. “You’re adorable, Soph. And you’re going to get your cute little ass back to the lab and ask this guy out once and for all.” Waving her hand at the white slip of paper nestled among the crumbled pieces of cookie, she added, “That fortune is fate, Sophie Ward. Your scientist’s mind might not like it, but you can’t argue with it. Just give in and let it do its work.”

God, she hated fortune cookies. But…if she were completely honest with herself, she hated the idea of never taking a chance on Chris Riley even more. Even though the idea of asking him out scared the hell out of her. Rejection was going to be so freaking humiliating. But, who knew? If it came to that, maybe she’d simply perish from embarrassment. Weirder things had been known to happen.

“Okay,” she croaked, a breathless scrape of laughter bubbling up from her chest as she wondered if everyone in the restaurant could hear the furious pounding of her heart.

“Ohmygod!” Natalie shouted, her excited squeal making Sophie want to cover her ears. Her best friend clapped her hands together like a giddy toddler. “You’ll do it? You swear?”

“Yes.” She was so nervous she could barely breathe, but she forced a crooked smile on to her lips, determined not to be a lily-livered wuss and to see this through. “I’m probably going to wring your neck later for talking me into this insanity,” she grumbled, closing her eyes as she dropped her head back down on the table and rolled it from side to side. “But I’ll do it.”

Book Blurb:

The wait is over. They fell in love in Melt Into You, but that was only the beginning. Now New York Times bestselling author Roni Loren dials up the passion as three lovers reinvent the meaning of togetherness and find out if love is truly enough…

Two dominant men, one beautiful woman. Jace Austin knows he doesn’t have what you’d call a conventional relationship with Evan and Andre, but it works. Boy, does it work—until Evan starts acting strangely and Andre’s ex-fiancée pops back into his life, unbalancing a perfectly happy threesome. Jace is forced to face the unthinkable: that the two people he cares most about in this world are in danger of slipping away from him.

So Jace plans a surprise getaway to a secluded mountain cabin for the three of them. And he knows exactly what he needs to do: give both his lovers a fantasy week they’ll never forget. And the possibilities for pleasure are endless. But when they get snowed in and the heat between them reaches a fever pitch, secrets come out. And Evan has one that could change all their lives forever.

 

Excerpt:

“Martine?” Andre glanced down the hallway and headed into the kitchen, trying to keep his annoyance from bleeding into his voice. “How did you get this number?”

“Don’t be mad, but I called your mom. My mother still had her number. Apparently, they still go to the flea market together sometimes on the weekend.”

“I see.” Great, now his mom would be calling him about that nice Velasquez girl. Because although his parents knew about his unconventional relationship with Evan and Jace, they weren’t exactly enthusiastic fans. His mother wanted big church weddings and piles of grandkids from her children, not a son who brought home a tattooed gringo and the girl they shared. He had a feeling his mom hadn’t completely gone off on him yet because she thought he was going through a phase.

“So I know I’m supposed to wait for you to call me or whatever, but I have the afternoon off today and I thought maybe we could grab that lunch.”

“Marti—”

“I know it’s last minute, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about seeing you the other night, and I just want to talk and catch up. Things haven’t been—well, they haven’t been so great for me lately, and it’d be nice to spend some time with an old friend from back home.”

The request was delivered with that trademark sweetness of hers that wedged guilt right through him. He knew this was more than an I-want-to-catch-up-with-an-old-friend thing. But he also sensed she was being honest about going through a tough time. He could hear that lonely edge to her voice. He also had no interest in being the guy to fix that for her. “I’m sorry to hear things aren’t going well, but I’m leaving town for a week in a little while. And even if I weren’t, it’s not a good idea for us to strike up that kind of friendship.”

“Don’t trust yourself with me?” she asked, her tone light and teasing but the challenge there.

He raked a hand through his hair, his patience on a short tether. “It’s not that at all. But I’m friends with people who respect my relationship and my choices, and I get the feeling that you don’t.”

He could picture her pressing her lips together on the other end. “Your mother said you have problems with commitment and that’s why you can’t decide between your boyfriend and your girlfriend. She said I should—”

Unbelievable. “This conversation is done, Martine.”

“Wait!”

He blew out a breath, silently counting to ten in his head.

“Look, I’m sorry. This is all coming out wrong. Of course, I wouldn’t try to mess up things for you if you’re happy, but I don’t see why we can’t be friends.”

“Fine. You want new friends? When I come back, you can have lunch with me . . . and Evan and Jace. You’ll have three new people to talk to.”

“You want me to—? I—”

“Is that a problem?”

“No,” she said quickly, sounding not at all confident. She was probably already picturing him open-mouth kissing Jace in public or something. “I mean, I guess that could work.”

“Great. I’ll give you a call when we get back. Until then, don’t call this number. I’m on vacation from everything and everyone.”

He tossed his phone on the counter with a sound of frustration.

“Was that the ex?”

Andre whirled around, finding Jace standing in the doorway of the kitchen. “Yeah. She tracked down my number through my mother.”

Jace smirked. “Mama Medina still trying to play matchmaker to get you away from your life of sin?”

Andre shook his head. “Something like that. My mom informed her that I have issues with commitment. I can’t even decide on a gender to love.”

Jace laughed. “Nice. Think what we have in mind will make a difference for her?”

“Doubtful unless there’s a priest involved at some point,” Andre said, picking up his phone and tucking it in his pocket. “But I’m over it. I’m too old to worry about what other people think, even if those people are in my own family.”

“At least your sister is on your side.”

Andre smiled. That’s because Cela was doing her own living in sin with her boyfriend/dom and was thankful that most of the family’s frowns were aimed Andre’s way instead of hers. Though, he didn’t doubt that Cela was also genuinely happy for him. “So is our girl all ready?”

“Yeah, the water turned off a few minutes ago.”

“Think she’s figured anything out yet?”

“Nope. I put the bags in the car so she wouldn’t see them and told her we were going to drop her off at work today.” Jace’s grin was devious, and childlike enthusiasm lit his face.

Andre walked over and threw his arm over Jace’s shoulders. “Ready to do some kidnapping?”

“Think if we tie her up and carry her out, a neighbor will report us?”

Andre snorted. “Yes. Let’s not get thrown in jail today, all right?”

“Damn. That would’ve been fun.”

“You’re a sick fucker, J.”

“And you two love me, so what does that make y’all?”

Andre led him out and toward the bedroom. “Gluttons for punishment.”

Jace glanced over at him, giving him that slow up-and-down look that could make Andre’s best intentions derail in a flash. “Lucky for us all, that’s my favorite kind of people.”

 

 My Review

 I love Roni Loren’s Loving on the Edge series. I was excited to see that we were going to get a little more Jace, Andre and Evan. Melt Into You gives us their story and happily ever after, but what happens after the HEA? Forever Starts Tonight picks up their story with them living together and making their commitment work.

Ms Loren gives us a hot, sexy, emotion packed follow up with Forever Starts Tonight. I enjoyed getting just a bit more of Jace, Andre and Evan and I’m looking forward to the next Loving on the Edge book.

Great Getaway with IT’S ALWAYS BEEN YOU by Victoria Paige

“I’ll wait forever, sunshine. I loved you then. I love you now. I’ll always love you.”

Former Navy SEAL Travis Blake is a rising star in the security business. In two short years, Blake Security Inc. has become highly sought after by the who’s who in Washington DC.
But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—and everything is not what it seems.
Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”
When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back. But with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.
Love was never the problem. A marriage cannot survive without trust. As sinister forces threaten the bond they are trying to rebuild, trust must come quickly or one of them will die.
* Strong sexual content and language. Disturbing situations.

Excerpt

She kissed him back. She fucking kissed him back.
He broke the kiss and held her eyes. “That right there tells me otherwise. We’ll find each other again. And, sunshine, you’re not building a wall between us because I’ll take it down with a sledgehammer. Fucking amnesia has nothing on us, Caitlin. What we had before was once in a lifetime. You think having it, losing it, and getting it back, I’m going to let it slip through my fingers again? You married a SEAL. We’re tenacious, persistent, and we don’t know how to fail. You think with the greatest battle in my life, and that’s winning you back—I’m going to fuck up now? Not happening. You were mine. You will be mine again.”

Book 2 – expected release 2015

Winning her back won’t be easy for she has erected walls that only the toughest of SEALs can hope to scale.
When Beatrice finds herself at the center of a deadly game, Gabe discovers the eerie similarities of the killer’s MO to a former assassin.

Review
 It’s Always Been You is a fast paced, smooth read filled with emotion and suspense. Travis and Caitlin are strong characters that you immediately want to fit together.

Ms Paige delivers on a thrilling suspense with twists and the best kind of love story. This was my first Victoria Paige book but won’t be my last.

Meet Victoria Paige

I work as a freelance database administrator, and when I’m not geeking out, I write romantic suspense novels. I live in Richmond, Va—less than two hours away from Washington DC—so most of the settings of my books are in the nation’s capital—of course, I’m not averse to creating fictional towns and cities. 😉
When I’m not arguing with the alpha male characters in my head, I love to watch high-octane action movies. I think Jack Bauer is the shit, which is why most of my characters are such badasses bent on saving the world from evil doers.
I love reading adult contemporary, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical, romantic suspense, and a few new adult fiction as well as military non-fiction.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Jackson clutched the stone wall of his chamber and gasped for air. What had just happened? He had returned to Cymmera, of that he was certain, but how? He hadn’t accessed the gateway. At least he didn’t remember opening it. A vision of her assailed him, beat at him, reminded him that he’d failed.

Oh, man. He was in trouble. He pushed away from the wall.

Images of his target taunted him.

He shoved a chair aside and tore through the pictures scattered across the table in a desperate search for salvation. There. He pulled the shot from the mess but found only condemnation. The long blond hair flowing behind her in the snapshot had not been visible to him, but there was no mistaking the deep blue of her eyes.

The pounding of a fist against the heavy wood door released him from whatever spell she’d cast.

“Jackson.” Another loud thud punctuated his name.

He struggled to get his bearings, tried to slow the racing of his heart. “Yeah, one minute.”

“Now. Your father wants to see you, immediately.”

Kai, his father’s most trusted warrior. He was in more trouble than he’d originally thought. Was it possible the king would sentence him to death for ignoring a direct order? Surely not without offering him a fair trial, or at least granting him the opportunity to explain. But what could he say? What explanation could there be for failing to deliver the girl? None.

“I won’t knock again.” The warrior would soon break down the door and drag him before the throne.

He crumpled the offending photo, the evidence of his disgrace, into a ball. Instead of tossing it in the trash as he’d intended, he shoved it into the small leather satchel he wore at his waist. With a deep breath, he released the latch and pulled open the door.

“Come.” Kai turned his back on him and strode purposefully down the corridor, their footfalls echoing through the silence of accusation.

The thought of escape taunted him, but he would never make it out of the castle. He had only recently completed his warrior training under Kai’s watch and would be no match for the seasoned soldier. Besides, Kai was a stickler for the rules. If he tried to run, the warrior would surely take him down, protégé or not.

Release Day – A FIGHTERS’S DESIRE by L.P. Dover

A FIGHTER’S DESIRE – PART ONE
Two is always better than one.
What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two
fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they
offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?
It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and
identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were
in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the
first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good
fight, and that’s what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.
Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition,
and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought.
The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one
night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition
she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was
one that she was going to enjoy.

A FIGHTER’S DESIRE – PART TWO
When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after
it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella
Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned
by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they
would only break her heart.
Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you
fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just
so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely
off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler
Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and
he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.
Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler
have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret
that’ll stay with them forever.

EXCERPT
PART 1:
“You don’t even know me,” I challenged. “Why do you want me to be your date? You saw
me for one second when you were up in the ring. I could be the biggest bitch in
the world for all you know.”
“That could be true. If you want the honest
truth,” he said, gazing down my body, “I saw you in that red dress and all I
could think about was how hot it would be to fuck you in it.”
Holding in my gasp, I tightened my legs together to keep my clit from throbbing out of
control. It pissed me off that my body responded to him, but it could also be
because he was so close; brushing his heated body against mine, and smelling so
amazingly delicious. The wild side of me wanted to tell him to take me right
then and there, but the logical side wanted to slap the shit out of him.
“Do you honestly get women by saying stuff like that?” I asked dryly, without a
hint of a smile.
His grin grew wider. “Most of the time. So what do you say? Do you want to be my
date for the night … the whole
night?”
Yes, my mind screamed at me.
“No,” I snapped, making his smug smile disappear. “I’m not one of your little
groupies, Ryley, and I sure as hell am not going to beg for your attention like
what you’re used to. You need to find someone else. I’m not interested.”
You just lied again, I scolded myself.
Turning on my heel, I headed for the door and opened it, only to be stopped by a hand
grasping my arm and the door shutting quickly in front of me. “Don’t you see? I
don’t want anyone else. I saw you and you are what I want.”
Laughing, I turned around and yanked my arm out of his hold. “Tell that to someone who’ll
believe you, Ryley. I don’t fall that easily, especially for someone who hasn’t
had to work for a woman. You’ll have to do much better than that.”
Or else I’m not going to play the game.

PART 2

Breathing hard, I stepped out of Tyler’s reach and started for the door, much to his dismay. “Why are you here, Gabriella?”
Keeping my back to him, I paused
with my hand on the knob, and blew out a heavy sigh. “I told you. When I want
something, I get it. I wanted to see you.”
“You’re walking a dangerous line, Gabriella. I don’t do relationships, and I don’t plan on starting … even if it is with you.”
I glanced at him over my shoulder.
“Well, then I guess it’s a good thing I don’t want one with you either. Look,
Tyler, I’m only here for the weekend. If you want to see me again you know how
to find me. No strings, just you and me.”

Cover Reveal – THE FEAR OF LETTING GO by – Sarra Cannon

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]

A Fairhope Novel

New Adult Contemporary Romance

Releasing November 2014

Cover designed by Okay Creations

 

She’ll have to let go of the past in order to find a love that could last a lifetime.

All I wanted when I moved to Fairhope was to disappear. I wanted to become a ghost. A stranger to everyone who knew me before, including my parents. Especially my parents. I never expected to become someone. A friend. A faithful employee. A scholar. And least of all, a lover. Love is a word I never truly understood until I moved here and witnessed it with my own eyes. My own heart.

I always believed love was a fairy tale, and now that I’m starting to fall for Fairhope’s most eligible billionaire, Preston Wright, it all feels like some cruel joke. A dream I need to shake myself out of before it’s too late. Before I make the same mistakes my mother made and end up right back where I started.

I know I should stay as far away from him as possible, but fate keeps pulling us back together. I’ve never been so afraid of something in my life. And I’ve never wanted someone more.

This is book 4 in the Fairhope series, but each book can be read as a stand – alone.

EXCERPT

That kid that could be mine.

I get up and let the empty bottle drop to the floor. The woods are eerily quiet, as if it can sense my anger. As if it knows the bitterness that lingers in my veins, as if it knows the burn of not knowing anything.

Like the woods, I’m left in the dark. Completely.

Branches and twigs crunch under my feet as I increase my pace to a gentle jog. And again, to a slow run. Then to a sprint.

The need to know increases with every footstep, as evenly paced as the ticking of the clock. It doesn’t matter that I’ve probably drunk too much beer to be here or that we’ve only been back for a matter of days.

I can’t be in this shithole full of memories without knowing. I can’t move on until I know. I can’t forgive her for a single fucking thing until I know—and even then, maybe I won’t be able to.

Maybe she’s unforgivable.

Instead of knocking on the back door like I did yesterday, I round the side of the house to the front door. The front room light glows softly through the curtains, but the rest of the house is dark.

My chest heaves with the exertion of my run here and I grab the doorframe to balance myself. I’m definitely too fucking drunk for this conversation, but what the hell.

I bang on the door, once, twice, again and again and again. “Sofie! Open the fuckin’ door!”

“Shut up!” she hisses, yanking it open. “The hell’re you doing here?”

I smirk, leaning against the wall. “Shouldn’t I be askin’ you that, princess?”

“Are you drunk?” Her voice rises a little at the end, and her eyes widen.

Those eyes. Fuck, those baby blues that have always undone me.

“Drunk? No. If I was drunk I’d be sitting at home like a miserable bastard and not here facing the cause of my misery.”

“You’re being an asshole. I don’t have to listen to this.”

She pushes on the door, but I wedge my foot in front of it. I let go of the wall and grab the edge of the door.

“Actually, you do.”

She can’t overpower me, and she knows it, because she lets up and the door swings open. “Why are you here, Conner?”

“You have a kid.”

She smacks her lips together. “Yep.”

“When? When did you have her?”

Sofie takes a deep breath in and presses her hands to her stomach. They’re shaking, even as she links her fingers to hide it. I can see that fucking tremble.

She whispers something but I’m too pre-occupied by her hands to hear it.

“What?”

“August last year,” she repeats, still a whisper.

August. Last year. My stomach clenches as I meet her eyes. “When? When in fuckin’ August, Sofie?”

“August fifteenth.” Her voice hitches halfway through the ‘fifteenth.’

Almost seven months to the day she walked out on me and the rest of Shelton Bay.

Adrenaline hums through my body, and I stare at her. At the tears building in her eyes, the quiver of her lips, the bob of her throat as she swallows harshly.

It’s no different from the burn in my chest, the twisting of my stomach.

“Is she mine?”

She shudders and a tear drips from her eye.

“Sofie. Is. She. Mine?!”
