Second Reckless Abandon Teaser!
First of all, let me again thank all the wonderful readers that are becoming fans of November Blue, and Ten Days of Perfect. I’m thrilled that you all seem to be eagerly awaiting book #2, Reckless Abandon. As promised, upon hitting 75 reviews on Amazon, here is an Adrian-free Reckless Abandon teaser 😉
I stand, hoping a change in elevation will help me refocus. I cross my arms over my stomach and pace around the desk, leaning against it in front of him.
“Is that how you feel? Do you feel like I abandoned you?” I almost whisper.
Bo’s eyes start at my knees, bare from my skirt, and swim up the length of my body before he stands, regarding my eyes with tenderness. Our bodies are inches apart; the space between them filled with tension, anger, passion, and promises of forever. I drop my arms and place my hands on the desk behind me. My pulse drums a familiar beat; allegro in his gaze.
“What I did to you, November, is inexcusable. I abandoned you by not being honest with you. Ainsley assumed I’d come running to her, and I haven’t. She’s threatened that you work here and will take every opportunity to try to mark what she thinks is her territory.” His husky whisper tears through me.
We ignore the boundaries I clearly set last week as our bodies buzz inches from one another in silence. Our eyes are locked in a game of emotional chicken; I already know I’ll blink first as my ears blaze under his heat. We’re in a vacuum; ignoring the past and disregarding the future. His hot breath against my cheek forces me to consider my options for action; I tap out, turning my head to the side.
Without further instruction he heads for the door while I wait for feeling to return to my legs.
I clear my throat. “You’re still playing at Finnegan’s tomorrow, right?” He stops and turns slowly toward me as I continue. “Josh said he’d text you. I appreciate your concern for me, but there’s no need to tip toe. They love you there.”
He hesitates with an amused expression before he answers. “I’ll play if you’re going to be there.”
