“I don’t trust men, they only ever take what they want and throw you away like yesterday’s trash.
The day I met Dex was no different, until I started to let him in. He could see ME, not the person I have become to avoid being hurt. Then I had to question everything I thought I knew, because he was different.”
Traumatised and screwed up, hard ass Ruby Sinclair never stays too long in one place, never letting anyone get too close. Always running to the only protection she knows –her brother. But a chance meeting with single dad Dex, changes everything.
“My life was perfect and then one day everything changed, my whole life was turned upside down, FOREVER. I became a shell of the man I use to be. Then Ruby happened, she was the breath of fresh air I didn’t know I needed, or wanted. How can letting her in feel so wrong, but so right at the same time?”
Dex has inner demons that torment him constantly. It’s meant to be just for the night; the last thing he expected is a tattooed beauty oozing sex appeal to leave him breathless. Once he’s had a taste of her, will he be able to stop?
With an undeniable sexual attraction that devours them, neither one wants more, but both don’t want anything less.
When push comes to shove, will either of them give an inch?Can he teach me to trust again?
Could she teach me to love again?
They were destined to cross paths... Because sometimes when two broken people come together, they can once again become whole.
“If you’re trying to sneak up on me, I can hear you.” I declare, as I start to turn around.
“I have it from a good source you know a thing or two about sneaking.”
It’s him, Dex. I can finally give him a piece of my mind about last night. “Me?” I say, turning
to face him. “After last night, you would know a thing or two yourself.”
“As I recall it, you jumped out of my window, houses have front doors you know,” he says.
“Screw you,” I grind out between clenched teeth. “Oh, I did that last night”, he says taking a
few steps forward and I take a few steps backwards, but then my back hits the bricks against
the house. So, he thinks he is clever, but really he has no idea who he is messing with. My
heart is still beating erratically, I can almost see it with the rise and fall of my chest. He can
see it too, and he leans in and whispers, “Remember how much you liked it, the way my touch felt on your skin?” And for a split second, his presence affects me. That is until he touches my waist, the unwelcomed touch when I’m not expecting it, always leads to something bad. I knee him in the balls and he drops to the ground in front of me. I lean over
his body and smile, “I will admit you fuck great, but never mistake a moment of lust as a
moment of weakness, especially from me.”
“Bitch.” He groans.
“Don’t you forget it,” I say, stepping over his body.
“Don’t you forget I like it rough,” he says through gritted teeth. I let him get in the last word, I go find Ty so I can say goodbye. I think it’s best if I go back to the motel.
