The Red Ledger is the award-winning & binge-worthy suspense/thriller series with Meredith Wild’s signature erotic twist.

The Red Ledger Series reading order

 

He’s death for hire…

Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.

She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This new-to-me author delivers a romantic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This tale (books one to three), had me from page one and gave me an unforgettable armchair adventure.
Isabel Foster’s easy-going life in Rio de Janeiro as an English language teacher takes a drastic turn when she sees a ghost from her past, Tristan, who disappeared six years ago. She soon realises that he is now a different man with no memories of what they had before. Her life is in danger but who has put a price on her head?

Tristan Red is ex-military and now a hired killer, a damaged and hardened man. His next target it turns out is a woman from his murky past and when she sees him and says his name, something in her voice triggers some memories.

“Ruthless and hardened, he’s claiming space in my heart like a warrior protecting what’s always been his. Our bonds, our wounds, and our memories – they wind us tighter day by day.”
This romantic thriller is told in dual points of view, a fast-paced, nail-biting saga that will keep your heart pumping. Reading this reminds me a lot of Jason Bourne with a love interest and you hope she won’t die in the end. Isabel is a young lady from a seemingly ordinary and privileged background but apparently, her family tree is as intriguing as Tristan’s back story. She starts off as naive but grows into a (not quite there yet) ass-kicking heroine who will do anything to be with the love of her life.

The hotter than lava chemistry between Tristan and Isabel and their epic journey makes this unputdownable, and then when you hit the last page you just pray that you have the patience to wait for the next instalment of this lovers’ rollercoaster ride. I was entertained, I was thrilled and I am looking forward to reading the rest of their story. Bring it on!

It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…

I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.

The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course I hired him.

I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.
He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it.

Unfortunately that lucky woman can’t be me.
Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.

So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?

What can you expect?

– An Alpha Hero (who is a bit of an asshole 😉 )
– Super Steamy Scenes
– An Adorable Beagle Puppy
– SOOO MUCH ANGST

Gabby and Kyle Moore have only been married three months when they move into their beautiful dream home. Gabby wants to have a stunning backyard and her new neighbours suggest Ward Landscaping and Design. She sets about looking into the company she considers hiring and whilst there are no pictures of the owner, there’s a very impressive portfolio of previous works. Showing exactly what she has in mind, she decides to hire Mr. Ward. Gabby gets quite the surprise when she meets Marcel Ward. Gorgeous with an amazing smile, not to mention the physique of this man.

Every woman would fall over themselves for him. He takes Gabby’s breath away and even though he makes her heart skip a beat, she can never be close to him. This story is full of angst and I couldn’t help thinking there was a lot more to what I was reading. Things just weren’t always what they appeared to be. Lust and steaminess are in spades, but not overshadowing the fantastic tale being spun.

Marcel was a bit of a complex character. Whilst reading about his past, not only did I empathize with him, but my heart melted too. I wanted him to have a happy outcome and seriously, I couldn’t not warm to this majorly hot man whose sex appeal and tough exterior ooze off the pages. It was easy to see why he and Gabby were drawn to each other: their connection is totally forbidden, making it even more difficult. Kyle is a mysterious one, leading me to think something didn’t feel quite right. He’s hardworking and harps on about it quite a bit; having to fly back and forth between home and New York quite a lot. Yet again, my gut instinct just kept telling me to watch out for him with that air of arrogance about him. Absolutely loved the side characters, mainly Gabby’s best friend, Teagan.

The penmanship is cleverly put together and once you pick this book up, you’ll struggle to put it down. It draws you in like a spider’s web weaving around you. My goodness me, the last couple of chapters were pretty explosive. I had a feeling it was building up to something but wasn’t quite expecting what I got to learn. I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen in book two, what their fate will be. As soon as I’d finished, I recommended it to my book buddies and friends from KFF one-clicked. I’m pretty certain they’ll enjoy this slow-burn romance as much as I did and looking forward to discussing this fabulous story with them. I’m being mindful about not giving anything away but I have to say that if it were possible, I would definitely have given more than five stars to this epic read. Thrilling angst, passion, deceit, lies and a rollercoaster of emotions are just some words to describe TMICH.

“Let me know if you need anything, Marcel.”

“Sure will, Gabby.”

I grab the door handle, but not without noticing the smirk on his face.

When I close the doors, I can’t help sneaking a peek as I put my tea back in the fridge. Mr. Ward—Marcel—is standing with a shovel in hand. He stabs it into the ground, leaving it standing upright, and then he crosses one arm over the other, reaches down for the hem of his shirt, and pulls it up, right over his head.

With the sun beaming directly on him, of course he stands out. His tan skin is unmarked minus one long scar right below his right rib. He’s sculpted but not bulky, almost like he does just as much cardio as lifting to get his lean, toned appearance. His abs lead down to a sharp vee that disappears beneath his belt buckle and jeans. A few hairs jump out from beneath the buckle as he grabs the handle of the shovel.

As he snatches the shovel out, he pauses midway. My eyes travel up to find his, and it’s then I realize I’ve been staring. He narrows his eyes a bit, but a smug smile lightly tugs at the corners of his lips.

“Oh, shit!”

I back away, bumping into the nearest counter edge. When I hear one of the men yell something, I look again, glad Marcel has moved away from the windows of the doors to tend to the person. I hurry back upstairs, and this time I don’t look back, even though a small part of me is dying to see those abs one more time.

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is the first book I have read by the author, a medical contemporary romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. Although this is book two it can be read as a stand-alone and I am definitely going to read book one as well as I love the other characters that were featured in it.

Natalie Kendrick is a thirty-two-year-old paediatric surgeon, a dedicated doctor who is well loved by her patients. Her sweet and bubbly personality, her idealism and her dedication to her patients especially to one little girl makes her the perfect heroine in this book. “I believe in the kind of love where you give the other person the last bite of cheesecake without thinking twice. Where you laugh when they’re happy, and you ache when they’re sad. Where you’re not two halves making a whole, but two wholes making something bigger, that only the two of you can make.” 

Jonah Sheridan is not only a skilled trauma surgeon but is also known as the Orgasm Whisperer amongst his colleagues. When Natalie, his best friend and fellow surgeon needed a place to stay because of a minor accident in her flat, Jonah had no choice but to offer her his place. It may not be a wise move though when their platonic friendship started to develop into something else. Living together albeit temporarily suddenly becomes uncomfortable and when he finds out about Natalie’s biggest secret, he needs to decide in which direction to take their friendship.

This friends-to-lovers romance, one of my favourite genres, surprisingly gave me more than what I hoped for. Not only does this book give you Natalie and Jonah’s epic love story, but embedded in it is the healing of a relationship between father and son, a doctor’s special connection to her patients and lovable secondary characters that make this more than just a romance novel. There are no antagonists in this story but rather one or two life-changing situations that happen to one of the main characters.

Jonah and Natalie’s connection from day one and how they dealt with the drama that happens in their lives makes their story special and so emotional. I loved that this author made her characters engaging and face adversity like proper grown-ups: by communicating and listening to each other. It felt a bit strange that the epilogue is from a minor character’s point of view so I am guessing that it will be his story next. I am thrilled that I found another gem of an author. I highly recommend this book!

“Come on, Jonah. You and I are just friends, and my living with you would only be temporary. I’m neat and fairly low-maintenance, and I really can cook like a boss. I know you like your space.” It was a euphemism, and if the smile poking at the corners of her lips was anything to go by, Natalie knew it as well as Jonah did. He was a freaking island, and it wasn’t by accident. “So I can totally stay out of your hair if you want me to. But please.” In a blink, her smile disappeared. “I’m begging you. Don’t make me stay with my parents.”
Jonah’s nice-guy propensity came out of hiding to pick a fight with his defenses, both of them quickening his pulse. His defenses didn’t fight fair, though, reminding him that he had damn good reasons for not being a long-haul guy.
He opened his mouth to say he was sorry. To tell Natalie, rationally and with good reason, why he just couldn’t let her move in with him for six weeks.

But what came out was, “Okay. You can stay.”

           Christ, his inner nice-guy was a sneaky son of a bitch.

           “Really?” Natalie let out a gasp that quickly slid into an adorable ear-to-ear grin, and okay, Jonah was going to have to do some damage control here.

           “With a couple of stipulations,” he said, holding up his fingers to count them off. “If you want to watch rom coms or that channel that plays all those gooey holiday movies, you’ve got to do it on your iPad.”

Jonah knew from experience that she loved both, and with Christmas only a month away, she’d certainly want to mainline them whenever she had down time. But while happily ever after might be on some people’s agendas—and more power to them as long as they didn’t try to convert him to coupledom—he sure as hell wasn’t going to let it parade across his big screen TV.  

“Come on! Not even It’s a Wonderful Life?” she asked, but he stood firm.

“The only Christmas movie that flies in my apartment is Diehard.”

Her hands moved to her hips. “That is so not a Christmas movie.”  

“Take it or leave it, Kendrick. Yippie-ki-yay is all the holiday cheer you’re going to get out of me.”

Natalie frowned, but didn’t push her luck, so Jonah continued. “I’ll take that you cook, I clean bargain. I don’t mind doing all the dishes, and I wasn’t kidding when I said I can’t cook. No complaining about football or hockey—the Rogues are kicking ass again this year on the ice and I want to watch every game that I can. And for the love of all that it sacred and good, no bras on the shower curtain rod.”

           “Done.”

           His surprise must have stumbled over his face, because she laughed and tacked on, “What? You know I love hockey, too, and after meeting Finn Donnelly over the summer at that fundraiser at The Crooked Angel? I’m all-in for the Rogues. I promised you I’d cook, and the other stuff”—she lifted one shoulder beneath her light pink sweater—“I can stipulate, even if it is kind of grinchy. So, do we have a deal? I can come live with you until this mess is all fixed?”

           Jonah exhaled. “Yes, we have a deal.

This is another collaboration from two great authors that is super fun and totally entertaining. It is always a pleasure to read their work and this one had me smiling and swooning at Willow and Reid’s story.

Willow and Reid have been neighbours for the last three years and also best friends. Willow’s parents own a dating agency and she is hoping to take over the reins when they retire. She is the quintessential golden child of loving parents, has a tree-hugging/hippy sister and she’s not wanting for anything except maybe a boyfriend. She just has to prove to them that she is capable of making a successful match but how can she do it when she can’t even find one for herself?

Reid is a successful businessman, happily single and having Willow as his best buddy who cooks for him and keeps him company means he doesn’t really need a girlfriend, right? But when she asks him for a favour suddenly, their uncomplicated relationship becomes complicated. He either has to walk away or make some hard choices if he wants a happy ending with her.

This friends-to-lovers story will tickle your heart. Told in dual points of view, Reid and Willow’s tale is a perfect balance of light-hearted romance mixed in with a little bit of drama to spice it up and not make it a boring read. Willow’s very likeable persona makes her the perfect wife material. Her main goal; however, is in conflict with Reid’s future plans and here lies the problem because with their new relationship she has to make a difficult choice. I totally understood where she was coming from and sympathized with her dilemma and was hoping that she stood firm in her choice which she dealt with in the end, no compromises.

Although Reid is a charming character and the ideal boyfriend, his commitment issues are the biggest stumbling block to their happy ever after. Willow and Reid’s romance is full of funny banter, quirky family members and although the storyline is predictable, this is a very enjoyable read and hard to put down.

What would it be like to have her that way? Skin to skin? Breathless and begging? My body inside hers?I want answers, I think as I open the door to our building.

No, I need them.

I take the elevator up to our floor and go right to her apartment. Using the key she gave me, I unlock her door, smiling that she still hasn’t changed the lock, and head inside.

“Reid?” She jumps off the couch and I freeze.

Jesus, she’s fucking beautiful. I’ve seen her a million times like this, but I don’t know what it is—I can’t breathe.

Her hair is piled up on top of her head in some sort of nest, the glasses that she swears she doesn’t need are on, and her legs … God, her legs. Long, sweet, slender … they would look perfect around my neck.

“What are you doing here? If this is about …” She stops talking and looks at me, her eyes full of confusion as I watch her chest rise and fall.

I walk toward her, unable to stand still. My hands grip her cheeks, and I pull her mouth to mine. Her gasp is swallowed by the searing kiss. Her fingers wrap around my wrists and I don’t know if she’s trying to stop me, but I’m going to keep going until she does.

Yet she never does. Instead of pushing me away, her hands move to my hips.

Willow kisses me back.

She kisses me like this is the only option.

She kisses me harder and more passionately than the last time.

She gives as much as she takes and I fucking revel in it.

This is crazy, but I don’t care. It’s right. It’s everything that finally makes sense. I wondered what it would be like and now I know—it’s fucking perfect.

“Reid.” She says my name and then pulls my mouth back to hers.

I kiss her, loving how our mouths fit and the way her tongue feels against mine.

“Tell me to stop.” I give her an out that I pray she won’t take.

“What?”

“Tell me now, Wills.”

I’m desperate for her. Seeing her tonight, knowing she was spying on me, did something to my heart that I can’t explain. It was the answer to the question that neither of us was willing to face.

There’s something here.

Maybe it’s new. Maybe it’s always been there but we didn’t see it. Maybe Willow and I needed to be pushed. Whatever the reason, the outcome is this.

She touches my face. Her fingertips are soft, and she moves her thumb to my lip. “I can’t. I don’t know what’s happening, but I don’t want it to stop.”

“Good, because I don’t think I could.”

My mouth is back to hers the second the words are out.

She giggles against my lips and I drink it in. Everything about Willow is sweet. Her mouth, her laughter, her heart. They all make her irresistible. I don’t know how I never saw it.

I break the kiss and scoop her into my arms, bringing her back to the bedroom. She doesn’t say anything, and I’m glad for it.

We’re both always in our heads and I’m very much ready to be in her instead.

I lay her down and crawl over her, loving how she looks at me with lust-filled eyes. “Tell me what you want, Wills.” She shakes her head and I know what she’s doing, but I’m not having it. “Don’t think, baby, just tell me.”

Her lids fall, closing me off to what she doesn’t want me to see, and I take a beat to really look at her. Lips swollen, shirt falling off her shoulder, hair fanning out on the bed. She looks like an angel.

“I want you to kiss me,” she whispers.

BLOG TOUR ~ NO FEELINGS INVOLVED by Siobhan Davis

Can this skeptical player let down his guard long enough to let love into his life, or is this forbidden romance a train wreck in the making?

No Feelings Involved, an all-new brother’s best friend standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

No Feelings Involved Ebook final cover

Ryan James doesn’t believe in love.

It’s a truth he learned early in life. A truth he carried with him into adulthood. He broke his golden rule one time, but Myndi trampled all over his heart, cementing his belief that love is a lie and not worth the effort.

Now he’s returned to his cynical views and promiscuous lifestyle, racking up more notches on his bedpost than he can count.

Until Summer Petersen comes crashing into his world, threatening to knock down his walls with her tempting body and sunny, sweet personality.

Summer is determined to lose her V-card before she starts freshman year of college, and the hot, older guy with the cute dimples, dazzling smile, and rippling biceps is just the man for the job. Ryan doesn’t take much persuading, and he rocks her world, giving her a night to remember.

When they walk away, there’s an unspoken agreement it was a one-time thing. Ryan doesn’t do feelings, and Summer doesn’t want to be tied down at eighteen.

But when she moves into her brother Austin’s apartment, she’s shocked to discover her new roomie is the guy who recently popped her cherry.

Ryan can’t believe he slept with Austin’s baby sister, and if he finds out, he’ll literally kill him. Keeping their hook up a secret is nonnegotiable. Keeping his thoughts, and his hands, off Summer, less so. Because the longer he’s around her, the more he finds himself catching feelings for the gorgeous brunette.

Summer doesn’t want to care for her older brother’s best friend, but Ryan makes her feel things she’s never felt before, and she’s slowly falling under his spell.

Embarking on an illicit affair behind Austin’s back has train wreck written all over it, but provided they keep their feelings in check, they can end this before he ever finds out.

It’s not like either of them is in love.

I have read this author’s books before and I have always enjoyed her work. This age-gap/best friend’s little sister romance is a sweet and swoony love story.

Summer Petersen is the youngest child with three over-protective brothers. She is a mature eighteen-year-old woman, a product of a family that holds no punches and where honesty and loyalty is part of their DNA. She knows what she wants, is brutally honest and dying to get rid of her V-card before she goes to college.

Ryan James is the best friend and business partner of Summer’s oldest brother, Austin. If you have read When Forever Changes, Ryan is Gabby’s brother who is now married to Slater (also a friend of Ryan’s). Ryan’s life becomes complicated when his one night stand with a girl he met in the club pops up back in the flat that he shares with Austin. Once bitten twice shy, he vowed to never be involved with another woman again until he met Summer that is!

This standalone contemporary romance is told in dual points of view. It starts as a light-hearted and casual hook-up where both parties were meant to forget to each other after that night. Summer is a delightful character bubbly and fun, a typical teenager but also mature in her outlook on life. I love her family dynamics, her camaraderie with her brothers although frustrating at times, it’s what makes her a tough young woman. Ryan, on the other hand, is more closed-in and no longer believes in love. Although there is an eight-year gap between the two main characters, Summer’s free-spirit counteracts Ryan’s closed personality.

The forbidden moments stolen by this pair adds to the thrill of their romance but when reality bites them in the arse this couple has to fess up. Their friends and family that appeared in the other book are still very much involved in their story and it is lovely to see how supportive Summer’s family is, well except maybe for some of her brothers. Summer and Ryan’s epic romance will surely make you fall in love again and might even make you cry. These two are just perfect for each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Excerpt

I’m munching my way through the bowl of popcorn when Summer and the cute little guy return. “I’m Iron Man!” he proclaims in a gruff voice, puffing out his chest behind his costume and bounding into the room, displaying impressive arrogance like a true mini Tony Stark.“And I’m Black Widow,” Summer announces, in an assertive tone, striding into the room behind him in a figure-hugging black jumpsuit, holding two toy swords in her hands. She stands confidently beside my nephew, the two of them projecting superhero status, and I can’t contain my laughter.

“You dare to laugh at me?” She quirks a brow. When Billy flips up his Iron Man mask, exchanging a devilish look with Summer, I’m on instant alert.

“What’s going on?” I question with clear caution in my tone.

“Billy and I made a new rule,” Summer says, winking at my nephew as a wicked smile graces her mouth. “You can only watch the movie if you’re wearing a costume.” She throws something at me. “You’re up, champ. Go get dressed.”

I inspect the flimsy red and blue silky material with trepidation, my mouth curling in disgust. “Oh, hell to the no.”

“That’s a bad word, Uncle Ryan,” Billy says, wagging his finger at me. “Now be Spiderman, or I’ll tell Mom you were cussing again.”

The little blackmailing shit.

Still, I can’t keep the smile off my face. There isn’t much I won’t do for my nephew, it seems, as I saunter out of the room with the offending costume in hand, subtly spanking Summer on the ass as I pass by her.

“What the actual fuck?” I question out loud to myself a few minutes later, all tangled up in the too-tight costume. How the fuck does Slate fit into this thing? I tug on the material, trying to stretch it out so it reaches my wrists and my ankles and isn’t molded to my dick like a tight layer of foreskin. That’s assuming it’s Slater’s because right now I’m questioning if this suit is even adult sized.

Little beads of sweat dot my brow as I finally get the damn thing on. I look in the mirror, laughing at the state of myself squeezed into the minuscule costume, deciding that Summer owes me at least a blow job for this.

The instant I step foot in the living room, shouting “I am Spiderman,” because hey, when in Rome and all that shit, the room erupts in an explosion of laughter, and you’d swear there were twenty people in the room not two. Or one point five if you consider Billy’s still a kid.

Summer drops to her knees, tears pouring out of her eyes, and she can’t stop laughing long enough to speak. Billy is running around the room, giggling and squealing.

“Hey, it was your great idea,” I say, strolling over to the couch and plopping down on it. The material scrunches up at my thighs, almost giving me a wedgie, and I squirm on the couch trying to get comfortable. Summer shrieks, almost convulsing with laughter, before jumping up and dashing out of the room. “Was it something I said?” I joke with Billy, and he giggles, snuggling up on the couch with me and snatching the popcorn.

I’m still cursing the damn costume a couple minutes later when Summer returns wearing a Wonder Woman outfit this time. If I thought the crotch of my Spiderman costume was tight before, it’s nothing on how strained it is now I’m sporting the biggest boner known to man. Discreetly, I pull the throw off the back of the couch, covering my nether regions before Billy notices the giant bulge in my tighter than tight pants.

“Are you trying to kill me, woman?” I ask as Summer flops down on the other side of me. “Death by giant erection,” I whisper in her ear, and she splutters, holding up a hand, trying to compose herself long enough to speak.

“Stop!” She titters, clutching her stomach as if she’s in pain. “I’ve already had to change once because I peed my pants.”

I just stare at her, and she cracks up in laughter again. “You seriously peed your pants?” I inquire, fighting a bout of laughter myself.

She punches me in the arm, but it’s a feeble effort, and I barely feel a twinge. “It’s your fault.” She looks over me, snorting with laughter. “How the hell did you even get that thing on?”

“It wasn’t without challenge, trust me.” I wink at her, and she rests her head on my shoulder, her light laughter warming my insides.

“You look totally fuckable in that costume,” I whisper in her ear. “I want you to wear it later when you’re riding me.”

“Do you think that’s why Gabby and Slater have so many costumes upstairs? Do they play superhero in the bedroom?” she whispers, waggling her brows suggestively as my stomach sours.

My insides shrivel at the thought, and I scowl at her. “Thanks a bunch for that lovely visual of my sister. Now, I have a renewed urge to punch my brother-in-law in the face.” I know Gabby and Slate usually dress up to go trick or treating with Billy at Halloween, and I’m sticking to that story as the most logical explanation.

Because, otherwise, I’m likely to land one on Slate the second he steps foot in the door.

BLOG TOUR ~ MORE THAN TEMPT YOU by Shayla Black

Today we’re thrilled to be on tour with the fifth book in Shayla Black’s More Than Words series, MORE THAN TEMPT YOU

I romanced her for revenge…but what if she’s not the enemy after all?

I’m Clint Holmes. I was an ambitious guy with a busy life and a growing business. Sure North Dakota wasn’t a tropical paradise, but I was happy enough—until tragedy struck. Now the only thing that matters is finding the person responsible and making her pay. But Bethany Banks is a Harvard-educated shark used to swallowing her enemies whole while playing dangerous corporate games. How can a blue-collar oil man like me possibly beat her?

The moment I lay eyes on my beautiful nemesis, the answer is obvious. I seduce her.

On Maui, where she’s fled, I get to know the man-eater who caused my family so much pain…only to find she’s not the brazen ballbuster I assumed. She’s skittish, secretive, vulnerable. For some reason, my instinct is to protect her. I can’t abandon my plan…but I can’t stop wanting her. Night after night, I pry her open with my touch until I’m drowning in our passion. Soon, I’m questioning everything, especially the fine line between love and hate. But when the past comes back to wreak vengeance and the truth explodes, can I prove that I’m more than tempted to love her forever?

“Can one of you keep an eye on Beth? She’s getting hit on a lot, which I told her to expect. But one creepy guy who was here last night is here again today. He seems awfully determined.”
“The one in the loud Hawaiian shirt with the matching personality?” my buddy asks.
“That one. He parked his ass in her station as soon as we opened. He’s been messing with her ever since.”
“I’ll take care of it,” I chime in.
First, when I bartended on the side in the past, I saw a lot of the girls struggle with dirtbags who refused to understand that no means no. Second, coming to her rescue will be a great way to meet Bethany and start gaining her trust. I refuse to think about how excited my libido is to spend time with her.
“Thanks, Clint.”
With that, Andy dismisses us. Ash and I file down the hall.
My buddy laughs. “You in the role of Bethany’s protector. Oh, the irony…”
“Hey, I’m not out to hurt her. I just want justice. I have no doubt she helped to swindle those people, so she deserves to pay as the law provides.”
“Fair enough. But, um…she clearly flips your switch. How are you going to keep your paws off her?”
Bethany Banks turning me on visually is fucking inconvenient. I’m sure that once I start talking to the woman, her personality will quickly turn me off. “I’ll work it out.”
“Ready for the madhouse?”
I follow Ash behind the bar. “Let’s do it.”
It takes me less than ten minutes to learn the ropes. Then Ash introduces me to the other waitress on duty, Montana. She’s a sultry brunette with dark eyes, golden skin, and big tits. Honestly, she’s usually my speed in women.
And yet as we’re chatting and she’s flirting, my gaze keeps straying to Bethany. What is it about her? She’s beautiful, but what else? Is it her aloofness? Maybe. I want to figure her out so I can understand why a brilliant woman, surely capable of making her own fortune, would help her father fleece people. The angry part of me wants to grasp how she managed not to get caught. Mostly, I fear the attraction is chemical and, regardless of what logic tells me, I want to nail her.
When Montana jaunts off with a wink. Ash pulls me aside. “Are you that rusty? Montana would totally do you, and you blew her off.”
I know, and the fact I’m not interested annoys me. “I’m not here for sex. Introduce me to ‘Beth’ and let’s get this farce going.”
As we approach, she sets a beer down in front of a guy who’s fortyish in a Hawaiian shirt—like a lot of the tourists here. He eyes her with excruciating intensity. She meets his gaze with an arched brow raised.
My gut tells me she’s not only not interested, but she’s silently rebuffing him.
Mug delivered, Bethany turns to leave. The man grips her wrist hard, his muscles flexing, veins popping, knuckles white. When she winces and tries to wriggle free, he clamps tighter and stands, jerking her toward him.
Fuck that. Even if Bethany Banks is guilty of a multitude of sins, she doesn’t deserve to be manhandled by this jerk against her will.
I barge my way between them, shoving her behind me. “Do we have a problem here, sir?”
Fury pinches his mouth. He narrows his eyes. “This has nothing to do with you. Butt out.”
“You don’t have permission to maul the staff. I’m going to have to ask you to keep your hands to yourself or leave.”
“Do you have your head so far up her twat that you don’t see she’s a fucking bitch?” The guy scoffs and rolls his eyes. “Yeah, and you deserve everything you get when she chews you up and spits you out.”
With that, the asshole tosses down some money and starts to walk away.
I’m furious. In part because he accused me of wanting her when I do. But mostly I’m pissed on Bethany’s behalf. “That was uncalled for. You’re not welcome back here unless you apologize to her.”
He grits his teeth, upper lip curling up with contempt as he turns to Bethany. “Fine. A thousand apologies.”
The douche doesn’t mean a word of that, and I want to pound his face. No, I’m not looking to become Bethany’s knight in shining armor. But this kind of guy always grates on my nerves because he thinks he can treat all women like trash, and the only thing that matters less than them are their feelings. I hate pricks like him.
Unfortunately, I can’t do anything else right now without ramping up the incident, instigating a fight…and probably getting fired. Instead, once he leaves, I turn to Bethany. I’m pissed all over again when I see she’s gone tense, as if she’s trying to hold herself together, and sporting a big red handprint around her small wrist.
“You okay?”
She nods. It’s shaky at first, then she drags in a steadying breath. “Yeah. He might be the first to think he can demand something more than a drink. But like Andy said, he won’t be the last. I’ll get used to it. Thanks for stepping in. I’m Beth.”
When she holds out her hand, I have to admit I’m impressed by her backbone. I’ve seen new waitresses shrink, cry, and ultimately quit when confronted with a customer that vile. Bethany simply picked herself up and now looks determined to carry on.
“You’re welcome. I’m Clint. It’s my first day.” I shake her hand.
We touch. Heat flares and rolls through me, instant and scorching. If I wanted to fuck her before, it’s nothing compared to the lust burning me now.
