Here's a snippet:
“You want me to put your order in now or do you want to wait?”
“I think I’ll hold off until Kai’s date gets here. After all, I have to see what kind of man entices my new friend, here.” He leaned back in the booth and draped one arm along the back of it as he took a sip of his beer.
“You got it, doll.” Matilda sauntered off toward the bar. Kai didn’t ...
miss the seductive swing of her hips or the fact that Aaron’s gaze was fixed firmly on the waitress’ ass.
“Charming,” Kai sighed as she picked up her beer. “Well I can clearly see what entices you.”
“What?” He asked innocently. “I’m only looking.”
“Forget it,” Kai said with a laugh as she sipped her beer. “Boys will be boys. So, what do you do aside from ogle waitresses and catch fainting women in gas stations? What’s your story, Mr. Miles?”
“Not much to tell,” he said with the shrug of one shoulder. “I guess you could say I’m on sabbatical.”
“Oh really?” Kai rubbed at the condensation on the beer bottle with her thumb. She was, in spite of her better judgment, thoroughly intrigued by the handsome enigma in front of her. “What exactly are you taking a break from?”
“Guess,” he said playfully. Aaron leaned both elbows on the table and leveled a challenging look in her direction. “I dare you.”
Kai’s stomach fluttered as those intense, light blue eyes locked firmly with hers. Her gaze flickered over his stubble-covered chin and along his tanned, muscular arms, until she came to his large, masculine hands. Long, strong fingers were curled around the glass bottle and in a flash she pictured them curled around her arms...pulling her closer...
She cleared her throat and sat back in the booth, as her body warmed at the thought of his hands wandering over her body. Kai sipped her beer, attempting to cool the sudden and unexpected flare of desire. What in the hell was wrong with her?
Given everything her mother had told her about the Dark Ones, Kai should be running in the other direction—instead, she invited him to dinner. She was inexplicably and undeniably drawn to the stunningly beautiful man in front of her. Mr. Aaron Miles was danger and desire all rolled into one, but above all he was unique...and forbidden.
Kai’s eyes locked with his once again and met his challenge.
“Based on your build and the look of your hands, it’s clear you’re not afraid of hard work. You ride a motorcycle and from what I can tell, you only have one duffle bag, which means you are a man who travels light. You have a weakness for women and it would seem, based on Matilda’s reaction, they have a weakness for you.”
“Do you?” He asked in a low seductive tone.
Kai’s breath caught in her throat as she held his stare. She gripped the bottle tighter as heat crawled up her back but before she could answer him, a familiar voice interrupted the moment.
“I’d like to know the answer to that question as well.”
Stay tuned boys and girls, I will be posting the first of my reviews on this series shortly. I have just had a long day at work and am getting a bit bleary eyed here.
