Here’s a little excerpt:
“Can I help you?”
I snap my head up, startled. “No, I’m good. I—” My eyes connect with the owner of the voice, and I lose my capacity for speech.
“Holy shit.” The Adonis from my past narrows his eyes. “Cally?”
The sound of my name on his tongue catapults me back in time and suddenly I’m sixteen again, his cool cotton sheets sliding against my skin as his fingertips trace the line of my jaw, the hollow of my neck, the curve of my hip. I’m sixteen again and licking sweet strawberry wine from his lips.
Time has been kind to William Bailey. Bare-chested and glistening with sweat, he has an iPod strapped around his thick biceps and a T-shirt tucked into the side of his running shorts. He’s bigger than he was at eighteen, more built, which is saying something since he was New Hope High School’s star football player back then. My gaze drifts south but gets snagged at the ripple of his abs and the trail of blond hair disappearing into the band of his shorts.
The sound of him clearing his throat has me yanking my eyes back up to meet his.
“Look at you. You’re all grown up.” He grins, and my knees go a little weak. How could I have forgotten the effect this man’s smile has on my knees?
“I could say the same for you.” I bite my lip. Hopefully no drool has escaped.
That knee-killing grin grows wider. I’m toast.
This isn’t what I expected. Not that I expected anything from William. I hoped to make it through my few days in town without seeing him, but of course not. Here he is. Looking for all the world like he’s actually glad to see me when he should hate me.
“You live here? I mean around—” Shit.
How am I supposed to construct a coherent sentence while looking at his bare chest? And that’s not even taking into account the memories flooding my mind at the sight of him. I may have never had sex with him, but I have enough memories of doing everything else
to rival even the most creative fantasies.
