Money. Lots of it. Fifty Million Dollars… left to her from out of nowhere from a father she didn’t know she had.
But that money comes with a price - Jack and Sean Stone. The Stone Brothers who were just gorgeous unattainable faces on magazines, up until the morning one of them shows up on Rue’s doorstep, drunk and pissed off. Jack’s growl, “You’ll be hearing from my lawyer,” sends a jolt of shock to Rue’s system that ricochets into a whole new life. One Jack doesn’t want her to have.
Rockstar Alec Gabriel is the Stone Brothers best friend. Has been since childhood. Their bond needs no words. So when Jack suggests he make his newest target for heartache, Rue Calliwell, Alec signs on out of curiosity, not expecting that meeting her will be the greatest challenge he’s ever had.
Part 2 will be released on 9/28 and Part 3 will be available on 10/9. Both are available for preorder.
Alec and I walk in silence past the valet who does a double take as he recognizes Alec. I feel like I’m in a dream, so when the guy smiles at me, I don’t smile back. I just keep following the leader. My leader.
We turn a corner. As soon as we’re out of sight of the club, Alec backs me up against a graffiti’d wall and lets go of my hand to touch my face and turn my chin from side to side, checking if I’m bruised. His body is five inches from mine. His face is close enough that if I leaned forward just a little bit, we’d be kissing. The deep timber of his voice ricochets through my body. “Does it hurt? Are you okay?” As I look at his lips, they part. We don’t speak for a few heated seconds.
Oh, did you ask me something?
“I’m okay. It doesn’t hurt anymore.” I sound like I’m saying Take me to bed, but I can’t help it. He’s formed a human shield around me and the sense of protection is a tonic I’ve never known. “You’re so warm, Alec.”
He smiles just for me, his eyes locked on mine. “You’re a couple steps above that.” His hand goes up on the wall above my shoulder and he looks at my lips. I back into the wall as though it’s pliable. It isn’t. He looks down at my cleavage and holds there. His hand comes up. With shortened breaths, I look down at his fingers and watch.
“Oh my God. Yes…” I whisper.
His eyes meet mine, a flicker of something heavy behind them. “What?” With shortened breaths, aching for him everywhere, I can’t believe I hear myself saying,
“Please touch me.”
