He promised he'd never leave. He should have told me. I could have helped. Max came into my life when I didn’t need a man to define me. He didn’t push his way in... not really. He slowly, tirelessly, and patiently waited. He used that damn smile, day in and day out, and waited until I tumbled head over heels in love with him. My grandma always told me to watch out for the pretty boys. The ones that turn you to mush the first time you lay eyes on them. She never warned me about Maxwell Holzer. If there’s one thing in life I’ve always known, it’s that when something goes up, it will most certainly always come crashing down.

The intense need to be next to her, to smell her, comes over me so I walk across the room and smile brightly when I see her push herself back against the door. From what I remember, that smile got to her last time. I mean, the smile gets me a lot of places, but with Nora it gets me what I want. I stalk closer to her, ignoring the work that needs to get done today, and enjoy watching her body start to react to my nearness. The hitched breath, the pebbled nipples showing through her dress, the goosebumps on her soft skin; all unspoken signs she’s turned on. “What are you doing?” Nora whispers, watching me move closer to her until I have her boxed in, my hands resting on the door next to her head. “What I should have done yesterday,” I whisper. My eyes flick to her lips. We’re so close I can feel her breath on me as her lips part. Nora’s body relaxes, her eyes searching mine, every now and then flicking to my lips. I should do it. I should just fucking kiss her.

Since putting to paper the voices in her head, she’s fallen in love with a career of building, ruining, and rebuilding fictional character’s lives.

The last person she expects to see is her sexy Rio fling, Dane Parkland.

Fighting for Love Excerpt © Nicole Flockton 2016/2017

Brooke picked up her handbag, checking for her wallet and apartment keys. Satisfied she had everything she needed, she headed toward her front door. The plan for the evening was to catch a cab and go to the nearest Chinese restaurant. Something light for her first night, then come back and crash. Her shower had revived her after her thwarted swim. Shock at seeing Dane still rushed through her. If she was one of those people who believed in fate and destiny, she would almost think all of this was meant to be.
Hooking up with Dane at the Olympics.
Lulu retiring.
The incredible offer from Susie to give her a trial run.
Dane living in the same apartment complex.
Were they coincidences or happy accidents? She had no idea. Whether she chose to grasp them was up to her. Or she could completely forget about Dane and the feelings that reignited the moment he touched her.
Man, why was she wasting her time on speculating about fate? She firmly believed she was creating her own. And that was exactly what this trip was all about—a brand new future.
With that resolve strumming through her veins, she pulled open her door and a pair of knuckles stopped millimeters from her nose.
Instinct had her stumbling backwards. “What the heck?”
“Shit, did I hit you, Brooke? I thought I’d stopped. Please tell me you’re okay.”
Dane’s words penetrated the surprise of her almost assault. “Dane? What are you doing here?”
“Dinner?” he responded sheepishly, holding up a square cardboard box.
The aroma of melted cheese and pepperoni wafted toward her. Her stomach grumbled in appreciation. Her mind, however, was yelling at her to thank him for the gesture, but politely decline, saying she had other plans.
“I asked for a gluten-free base. I know you prefer to eat gluten free foods.”
God, how could she say no to him after that? She supposed eating with Dane was a better alternative than eating alone in a restaurant.
Brooke took a couple of steps back. “Come in.”
“Are you sure? You looked like you were on your way out.”
“I was, but only to get food.”
Still, he hesitated from taking that step over the threshold into her apartment. “Come in, Dane. It’s fine. I didn’t really want to eat by myself.”
His lips stretched into the same wide grin that had sucked her into his orbit the night they’d met in Rio. Her traitorous body warmed. Desire pooled low between her thighs. Inviting him in now appeared to be a bad idea. She had to resist him. Had to remember she was only here for a short while. Did she want to pick up where they’d left off?
Brooke wasn’t sure she could handle walking away from him again. It would be safer for her and for Dane if she controlled her baser nature and put him firmly in the friend category.
Any other category wasn’t an option—no matter how tempting.
