Samantha Hall needs a fresh start
Broken hearted and alone in a new city, Samantha begins to build a new life for herself while working as a bartender. Focusing on her new friends and rebuilding her broken life, Samantha is content.
Until she meets him – attorney by day and a cocky, foul mouth playboy by night.
All girls want Slade Long, but not one has ever been able to keep his attention for long. Having a different woman in his bed every night is how he prefers it-no emotion, no connection.
Until he meets her - an angel with the sweetest voice he has ever heard and the most enticing green eyes. Samantha makes him second guess his actions and has him wanting something he didn’t know existed. How can a man who has never been in love, be so sure? Can real love happen this fast?
Burned by her past, Samantha struggles to keep up with the overwhelming passion she feels for Slade. She knows that he will be nothing but trouble to her already fragile heart, but how long can she continue to deny the love that she feels for him?
Will Samantha let Slade prove his love is real, or will she push him away?
She thought she knew love……
He thought he never wanted love…..
Together they will show each other what they can’t live without.
I’m not supposed to love him. I’m supposed to… hell, I don’t know what I’m supposed to feel. He could never love me the way I could love him. He’ll just leave me alone and heartbroken.
“Angel?’ I hear him coming up behind me.
“I don’t want to talk about it, Slade. I just need time to think.” I continue to walk down the hallway, not looking back at him.
He grabs my arm and spins me around roughly, knocking me up against the wall. Before I can ask what the hell he’s doing, his lips are on mine, and his hands grab my thighs, lifting me up. I don’t hesitate, wrapping my legs around him and kissing him back. He lets go of my legs and fists his hands tightly in my hair as he starts walking us to his bedroom. This is how it needs to be between us. Just sex, no love.
She was gorgeous and fucking sexy as sin in that tight white mini dress and sky high fuck-me heels. I instantly have an image of that dress on my floor and her tan legs wrapped around my hips, shaking uncontrollably as she screams my name. The bitch look she was giving me said fucking was the last thing she wanted to do with me and I couldn’t help but smirk. She didn’t have a clue that she was my angel.
As she walked past me to the dance floor without saying a word, I smiled to myself. She was going to make me work for it. Challenge accepted.
