I wasn’t supposed to be in town for long. Get in, get the job done, and get out.

Easy. Simple.

She was never supposed to happen, and her baby girl sure as hell wasn’t part of my plans. I didn’t need the complication and I certainly wasn’t planning on staying.

“Mommy’s scared, Ryan. Don’t leave.”

Five words.

That was all it took for my life to change forever.

When the buzzer goes off, he glances at the score, and his brows draw together.

“That was really um…” I clear my throat. “Good,” I tell him.

“Nah. I usually do better than that.” He sets the gun down and turns facing me, a slight tilt on his lips. “You’re distracting.”

“I’m distracting?”

“Yeah, dollface, you are.” He stops inches away, and I angle my head up. “Everything about you fucks me up.”

The noise around us does this weird thing where it fades away, and the only thing I can hear is the sound of my heart beating in my chest. His eyes glued to mine make my knees weak, and I contemplate if it’d be better to collapse on the ground or fall into him. A kid runs past me, bumping into me and making the decision on my behalf. I lurch forward, my hand landing on Ryan’s hard chest to keep my balance.

He glances down, and I pull my arm away. But he grabs my wrist and puts my hand back where it was. “I like it when you touch me.”

I want to tell him I do too—I loved it the first time it happened at the restaurant—but that’d give him a reason to continue flirting. Instead, I try to take a step back.

He uses his free hand and grabs my waist, holding me in place. He doesn’t need to say anything. The flexing of his fingers and the darkening of his eyes say it all. He wants me.

And when my lips part and my own fingers dig into his chest, he knows I want him too. No matter how much I try to deny it, I’ve wanted him since the moment I saw him walking down the street. Every time I see him, I only want him more, but I know I can’t have him, and it makes every subsequent encounter harder and harder to keep my resolve.

I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.

I was also in love.

My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.

To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.

For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.

It’s time to get my girl back.

About Anna Brooks

The first time Anna tried to read a romance novel, her hair caught on fire when she leaned over a candle to sneak a peek at her mom’s Harlequin. She thinks being hit on the head with a shirtless Fabio until the smoke cleared is what sparked the flame for her love of romance.

Anna was born in Wisconsin, but currently lives in Texas with her husband and two boys. She writes sexy romance that always has a happy ending and loves bringing characters back for cameos. Less than six degrees of separation connects any of her novels.

When she’s not writing or reading, she’s watching reruns of her favorite romcoms, talking to her dog and cat like they’re human, eating carbs, or practicing hand lettering.
