Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I'd felt for him. And then his words: "We both want more. Until we don't." The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.
The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it's not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It's my gun that's lying on the counter between us.
And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.
"What is that for?"
"You thought you needed it earlier," he says. "I want you to have it now."
My fingers curl on the tiled counter. "Do I need it?"
"That's for you to decide."
"That isn't the answer I want."
His jaw sets hard. "If you're expecting an answer you'll want, you'd better pick up that gun."
We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. "I know what you're doing."
"What am I doing?"
"The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest."
"Which is what?"
"Offering me the façade of control."
"You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade."
"I know you now," I counter. "You don't give up control, even when you say you are."
He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. "There are two sides to this coin," he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. "The me with you, and the me with everyone else."
"We barely knew each other at the church."
"I'd already decided you were mine. You just didn't know it yet."
"You are all kinds of tattooed hotness, Kayden Wilkens. Hawk."
His lips curve. "Is that you talking or the wine?"
"It's called liquid courage."
"You're adorably drunk."
I stroke his cheek, which feels much better than mine. "But you're here, and you are The Hawk and I know I'm safe."
"You are safe with me, Ella."
"I am, but you're dangerous to everyone else."
His expression sobers. "Is that what you think of me?"
"Don't go getting serious on a drunk person. I didn't mean that negatively you're everyone's protector." I grab his T-shirt. "I meant that the bad guys are in trouble when they piss you off. And I meant it like you're a badass, thus the you're sexy' comment. Wait. Did I say that or think that? I'm saying it now. You're sexy."
He flattens his hand at the small of my back. "Badass?"
"Do you know how badly I want to be inside you right now? Right here?" His hands go to my sides, traveling to my breasts, his thumbs stroking my nipples to hard peaks.
I grab his hands as my cheeks flush. "Too bad I wore jeans. You'll have to behave."
"Will I?" he asks, flicking my nipple.
I grab his wrists, firming my voice. "Stop, because yes, you do. I am not getting undressed in public."
He reaches down and fingers the easily undone laces that line the front of my jeans. "I'll settle for you having an orgasm until we get home."
I reach for his hand. "I can't have an orgasm in public, either," I say, but my body betrays me, my sex clenched and wet.
"That sounds like a challenge and this is barely public." He pulls several of my laces loose. "I told Niccolo I couldn't command you to orgasm. I want to try."
"You can," I assure him. "You can pretty much just look at me and I'm wet."
"Are you telling me you're wet now?"
"Very so take me home and do something about it."
His hand goes to my jaw and he drags my gaze to his.
"I never thought I'd use the word home again let alone have a woman I want to use it with. I love you, Ella."
"I love you too " He slips his fingers beneath the laces and suddenly they're intimately pressed to my sex. "That was unfair!"
"You're not wearing panties," he observes, slipping a finger inside me.
"Kayden "
"And you are very, very wet." His head lowers, lips at my ear. "I would kill to feel you around me right now."
I pant, and my sex clenches around his fingers. "You're about to embarrass me."
"No one can see us."
"That's not what I mean. I mean " He thumbs my clit and presses another finger inside me. "I'm going to come really fast." He kisses me, a deep slide of his tongue, and oh . . . oh . . .

Once, Shay’s sex buddy wears out his welcome, and Bronx learns about the arrangement, all of the shit hits the fan. A run-in with another MC, since Shay’s cousin’s trouble, found its way into Manor puts Bronx in a position to help the woman he has dreamt of having for the last four years. The attempt they make at exploring their unrequited attraction is challenged when the full truth is revealed, and old mistakes come back to haunt them. Let's Ride is a book filled with excitement including the return of Lori, which completely shocks the small town of Manor and Dessy taking on an unexpected member of the Guardians.
[youtube]   excerpt   Bronx just found out who Shay was screwing around with - I quickly intervened and said, “it doesn't fucking matter. Now take your drama out of here.” Shay turned all the way around to face me, then she said, “There is no drama now get the fuck outta my face. The both of you.” She said all of that with her eyes solely on me and not Greg. “You’re in here fussing and shit. Nobody wants to see that. Go and fuck like you normally do. You're good at that. Fucking ‘em and getting rid of ‘em. Just do that shit off Guardian territ…” I could have blamed it on the alcohol, but I meant every goddamn word. My heart was torn and I wanted hers to bleed too. It didn't matter that she was doing what I had driven her to do. I wouldn't cash in on my prize but I didn't want anyone else to have it either. It wasn't fair, but I did not give one fuck. I should have also known, even in my inebriated state, Shay also had zero fucks to give. She smacked me hard as shit, right across the left side of my face. It jerked slightly and then she was in my space. “Anything else you got to say to me, Bronx? Huh?”   Let's Ride x buynow

Here’s a taste of Luke & Callie…

I stand and move to him. His back muscles tense when I place my hand on his shoulder. “I want to get to know everything about you, Luke Hardy,” I say and he spins around to face me.

His eyes search mine. “You already know the important bits.”

“No, I don’t.” I rest my hand against his chest. “I don’t know the secrets you keep locked in here. They’re the important bits.”

His intake of breath is sharp and he wraps his hand around mine. His other hand slides around my waist and he pulls me close.

Oh, shit.


Too close.

But his lips brush across mine before I can move out of his embrace. His hold is tight and his message is very clear—he’s in charge here and if a kiss is what he wants, a kiss is what he will have.

He surprises me, though, and angles his face away from mine. Still keeping hold of me, he says, “I know we’re doing the friends-only thing for awhile, but a man’s got needs, Callie. If you put your hands on me, you better be prepared for the consequence of that.”

I’m pretty sure my eyes almost pop out of my head. I knew Luke was bossy—oh, boy did I know—but this is a whole new level of bossy. His deep voice vibrates along my skin, scattering goose bumps, while his eyes penetrate my soul. Those intense, green eyes of his will do it to me every time. They’ll cause me to forget everything I’ve ever said or thought and just cling to him for the ride.

He dips his face again and his mouth finds mine. The moment our lips connect sparks of desire burn through me. I’m so damn hot for him and I can’t control myself. I push my body hard against his and open my mouth to him.

He tastes like whiskey and I make a note to buy some just so I can remember this moment forever. I’ve never loved whiskey before, but it may just be my new favourite drink.

This kiss will forever live in my mind. Luke doesn’t simply kiss—he possesses. He takes me mind, body and soul.

In this kiss I find hope.

Hope that he will fight for me.

For the us we both want.

When I’m not creating with words you will find me planning my next getaway, visiting somewhere new in the world, having a long conversation over coffee and cake with a friend, creating with paper or curled up with a good book and chocolate.

I love Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Pink, Florida Georgia Line, Bon Jovi, Matchbox 20, Lady Antebellum and pretty much any singer/band that is country or rock.

I’ve been writing since I was twelve. Weaving words together has always been a form of therapy for me especially during my harder times. These days I’m proud that my words help others just as much as they help me.
