    Excerpt

    Chapter One

     

    The ice-cold beer soothed Drew’s jangled nerves as he leaned against a carved wooden column at the Oakwood Tavern. Tonight, she’d say yes when he asked her out, unlike last time. Terese…

    Behind the giant oak-slab bar, the bartender clanged a bell, indicating last call.

    Time to act.

    As if on cue, Terese Brock wandered over to the waitress station, depositing detritus from several empty tables. Her tight, black jeans and lacy, green tank top accentuated her perfect body. Wooden chopsticks pinned her black hair back into a messy bun. Even after a long shift, her soft lavender perfume tickled his nose. Closing his eyes, he leaned forward and drank in the delicious scent.

    Wiping his palms on his jeans, he counted to ten. “Hi.” The space between them was sufficient he didn’t trap her against the bar, but she’d have to push past him to leave. Terese’s eyebrows raised as he leaned in. Pressing her lips together, she lowered her shoulders and narrowed her eyes, the epitome of cool and calm.

    “Hi,” she said, polite, careful.

    Drew swallowed hard. Every cell in his body screamed run. He’d never been so close to her, and he froze, unable to form words. Her eyes glowed soft blue. Her full lips, purple-red, shone with some sort of glossy lipstick. But she didn’t smile.

    Lips pursed, she laid her hand lightly against his chest, probably to lever him out of her way. He didn’t want to come off as one of the usual drunk pick-up artists. He’d waited weeks to build up the confidence to ask her out. Backing down wasn’t an option.

    He held his ground. Her body tensed, like the night he’d watched her toss a rowdy drunk without any help from the bouncer. Clearing her throat, she broke his trance.

    “You’re so beautiful,” he whispered. Pushing in closer, he kissed her—a full-on, no-excuses lip-lock. He poured his pent-up desire from the past few months into it. He brushed her cheek with his finger and barely restrained from crushing her into a tight embrace. He yearned to pluck the chopsticks from her hair, letting her locks spill down around her face.

    She didn’t move or didn’t kiss back.

    At first.

    Then all at once, she melted into him, parting her lips, inviting him in.
