Griffin Campbell was the typical bad boy. My father warned
me not to get too close. But he’s handsome as hell with eyes the color of the
ocean, and he’s fiercely loyal and loves unconditionally. I couldn’t stay away
when he was the only boy to ever claim my heart. I gave him all my firsts . . .
and he left me behind.
Ten years later, he’s returned home offering answers as to
why he left because he wants me back—only I’m not the broken-hearted teenager
he once fell for. His pretty eyes and killer muscles aren’t enough to mend the
hurt that rages inside me.
Jolie Bryant was my best friend’s little sister. She’s sexy
as hell, sweet as sin, and very forbidden—my favorite memory and my biggest
I should stay away. I’m harboring secrets that will shatter
The thing about secrets is that they always find a way to
come out. I just hope that when mine do, she won’t turn away from me . . .
I want my second chance with the only girl I’ve ever loved,
but it seems that fate has other plans.

I throw my head back, laughing and happy that playful Jojo is back. “I
remember the first time we kissed,” I say, looking into her eyes. She swallows.
Her earlier playfulness falls away and is replaced with a serious, heated
stare. “I remember the first time we danced.” My finger caresses the bare skin
of her shoulder, and her green eyes go from shining emerald to a dark forest
whispers a warning.
“I want to kiss you
so bad.” My voice is gruff and filled with a need that far outweighs any
craving for gelato. I don’t wait for her answer because the way she watches me
has me undone.
My lips press to
hers slowly, a soft caress, a begging for permission. Her fingers come up and
rake through my hair, tugging me closer. My tongue peeks from my mouth, begging
entrance to hers as she opens willingly.
The kiss is slow and testing at first. I’m scared of pushing too hard and
having her pull away. She says she doesn’t want more, but the chemistry between
us beats alive and strong. Her taste sets my body on fire as a million memories
come crashing through my mind. Electricity sparks inside me, making me feel
alive for the first time in what feels like forever. And now, with a simple
kiss, I have come undone. My lonely heart beats in time with hers. My thumb
brushes over the pulse point in her neck, and it thumps wild like mine.
“Jolie,” I say her name like a prayer.
“What are we doing?” she murmurs into my mouth.
“What feels right,” I answer into hers. Primal instinct begs me to take
her on this kitchen counter and make her mine. My fingers pull at her scalp and
she moans into my mouth, and my hard-on pulses to her sweet noises. The kiss
intensifies until we are both breathless and panting when suddenly, she pulls
away from me, pressing her hands to my shoulders.
