begins to deepen, my lips tender to the touch as I lick them. I look up at the
brown-haired Adonis holding me close, inhaling as deep as I can. I let go of a
shaky breath.“What are you doing?”
Brett blinks. “What you won’t. What I shouldn’t.” He kisses me chastely,
pulling back. “What we need.” He grins. “I couldn’t hold back any longer.”
“You make us sound like dogs on a leash.”
He snorts on a soft laugh, his stare scanning over my lips. “If anyone’s a dog
here, it’s me. But I can’t deny you, Elsie.” He gaze goes back up to mine. “I
can’t deny this. I know we made a promise. To never cross this line again. But
there’s a reason we’re both here in New York. There’s a reason for right now.
To be honest… I don’t know what the hell it really is.” His aqua eyes glow.
“But I know I want to explore it.” His voice lowers. “Explore you… If you let

smells like the rain. Clean and crisp. A fresh, lightly smoky scent, the skin
that is pressed against me as is almost as intoxicating as the stare—the one

little more than a sigh. I bite my bottom lip, trying to control my tongue.
“We can’t throw caution to the wind, Brett. We have Kayla to think about. And
even if we didn’t, we have history, too much past. We’ve practically watched
each other grow up. Stayed in the same houses.” I scoff out loud, a blush
hitting my cheeks that I can feel burn. “For God’s sake, you’ve seen
everything. You’ve seen me at my worst.”
He chuckles, a seductive low sound. “My sexy sweet Elsie. You don’t get it, do
you? In my eyes… you have no worst.”
