Orlando DJ, Gabe Sullivan spins a woman up only to revolve right out the door. His tune changes when his only female friend, Cassie, pretends to be more than friends. Sparks fly from their fake kiss, and Gabe insists on exploring things further with Cassie.
Despite the risks, Cassandra Daughtry falls deeply and quickly for Gabe. As their love grows, Cassie relinquishes her heart to him. He’s turned over a new leaf.
Except, a business deal enters the picture and Cassie pleads for Gabe to listen to her. His fiery temper and misconceptions about women with money creates an enormous rift. When Cassie finds Gabe to work it out, she discovers he’s kept a secret from her. He claims he was protecting her, but his betrayal cuts too deep.
Can their love overcome so many outside forces of confusion and betrayal?
She hadn’t lowered her volume even though the alcove muted the music, which told me she was riding a serious buzz.
“How much you had to drink, Daughtry?”
She whipped her head around, her hair flying around like a cascade of brown silk. Coupled with all the makeup and her skin-tight red dress, she was a wet dream.
“Don’t call me ‘Daughtry,’ got it?”
I pressed my lips together so I wouldn’t smile, or worse, laugh. I forgot she could be such a cute drunk.
“I got it, Cassie. Can you calm down for a moment?”
She crossed her arms under her breasts which only highlighted her cleavage in the scoop-neck dress. My dick twitched, and it was all I could do not to groan.
“I’m perfectly calm,” she declared. Her voice had lowered to a normal level.
I nodded. “Great. Let me ask you this, were you having fun dancing out there?”
Her lips started to twist, but she stopped them and lifted her chin mulishly. “Yes, I was.”
I gave into my grin. “Liar. You were not.”
Her eyes narrowed. “You’re not a know-it-all, Gabe. Don’t try to start now.” She ended her admonishment with her lips pouted.
Fuck. I wanted to kiss her again, but now she was drunk. Okay, maybe just tipsy, but still. I couldn’t take advantage of her like that.
Karen Renee is the author of the Riot Motorcycle Club, Beta, and O-Town series of books. She once crunched Nielsen ratings data but these days she brings her imagination to life by writing books. She has wanted to be a writer since she was very young, but it’s taken the last twenty plus years for her to amass enough courage and overall life experience to bring that dream to life. Some of those life experiences came from the wonderful world of advertising, banking, and local television media research. She is a proud wife and mother, and a Jacksonville native. When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.
