Adjusting my guitar, I turn around and freeze, every muscle in my body loosening at the stunning woman sitting on the stool next to me. One look at her, and the air in the sound booth evaporates, stealing it right out of my lungs.
“Keep looking at me like that, and I’ll lock the door, shut off the lights, and fuck you up against the window. I’ll have them rattling harder than they’ve ever vibrated before.”
A sharp breath escapes Julia’s mouth. Her eyes go wide. Her lips are painted in a delicious shade of light pink, glossy and so plump my taste buds explode in my mouth. Damn, the woman has my knees knocking together. Straight pin-up version of sex is what she is. Earth-shattering sex. A little rough with a whole lot of meaning.
She looks much better than she did nearly a week ago when I climbed the steps to her house leading to the unknown. I’d like to think I had something to do with it. The truth is, it’s all her and the strength she possesses.
I wrap my arm around her waist, yanking her to the edge of the stool, then lift my hand to settle on that gorgeous face.
“I dare you.”
Her dare sizzles through me like an electric wire.
Excellent! This is Miles and Julia's story. I loved Miles and his emotional rollercoaster of life made me so sad for him. An unexpected tragedy plunges him into alcohol and the last two years are a blank to him. Until he comes across Julia again and it triggers a spark of memory.
There was an ache of familiarity so powerful when I touched her that for one split second it had me second-guessing my sanity, like a half remembered dream that comes to you in bits and pieces.
Julia has a past of hurt also. Her coming across Miles again might be the best thing for both of them.
She's a game changer in a game I had no clue I was playing.
This is a wonderful, fulfilling story, that had me at times in tears. This author's words flow off the page and into your heart! You will fall in love with these characters. I highly recommend!
"Knew then like I know now that I need you in my life. After all this time, neglecting what was between us was the biggest mistake of my life."
