Life couldn’t be any brighter for art dealer Christina Daniels. At the top of her career, she has no problem flaunting just how perfect her little world has become.
When tragedy strikes back home, Christina is forced to put everything on hold to return back to a past she’s tried so hard to escape. Including a love she regrets letting go. Ian Whitman has only one regret and it was letting his first love walk out of his life. Now that she’s returned, his heart won’t give her up twice without a fight. As secrets are revealed, can Ian soothe her heart while convincing her that a place she tried so hard to run away from is the place she’s destined to stay? Will love get a second chance in the face of tragedy?
Just as I place my pad of paper on the shelf to count the acrylic paint tubes, the door to the art closet flies open.
“Jesus Christ, Ian, you scared the shit outta me.” I press my hand to my chest. The look in his eyes says he doesn’t care too much about my well-being. Uh oh. It also looks like I may have over-poked the bear.
He steps into my personal space and presses his body into mine. The door automatically swings shut behind him.
“Ian?” I question.
“Chrissy?” he retorts back, his breathing already heavy with what seems like pure lust.
“Can I help you with something?” I take a deep breath, trying to calm the unsteady beat of my heart.
“Yeah, you can start by not leaving your god damn lingerie around for me to see. Unless you want me to finally break and do something about it?” He pushes himself harder into me.
And oh my god, he is definitely that. Hard.
“What are you doing?” I ask nervously.
“What I’ve been wanting to do since the moment you came back into my life.”
“And what exactly is that?” I choke out.
“Continue where we left off.”
And with that, he pulls me fully into his solid chest. The instant his lips touch mine, my knees buckle. This kiss—this powerful, overdue kiss— is going to literally bring me to my knees
