Excerpt

Springing
to my feet, I square my shoulders, and meet his gaze head-on. Dark gray storm
clouds swirl, uncontrollable. He bites down on the corner of his mouth, kicking
one foot up behind him, the sole of his shoe banging against the door.
Standing my
ground, I hold his tortured perusal, unwilling to blink first.
“Lila.” He
rasps, his eyelids hooded.
“Cade.”
“Why’d you
run?”
“I had to
go to the bathroom.”
The left
side of his mouth twitches and he pushes off the bathroom door, another step
closer to me. “No, you didn’t. You couldn’t get out of the room fast enough.”
“You
think?”
“It was
shitty of me to put you on the spot like that in front of all those people.”
“I told you
I don’t want a…thing.” I gesture between us.
“I know.
But this thing,” he steps closer, crowding me, “it’s not going anywhere.”
I shuffle
back until I’m pressed against the bathroom wall opposite the door. This damn
bathroom is suffocating, overflowing with Cade’s presence. Cade’s forearm
settles next to my head, boxing me in. His mouth is only inches from mine, his
tongue darting out to swipe across his bottom lip.
I groan, my
body involuntarily arching toward his. Jesus, what is wrong with me? And what
is he thinking? Who could have a proper argument with all of these…
distractions?
“I
shouldn’t have done that, blown up your spot, tossed all that attention your
way. But babe,” he drops his forehead to mine, his breath fluttering over my
lips like an invitation I desperately want to RSVP yes to, “I hated that so
many people threw shade your way. Every comment I heard pissed me off so much
more because it was said about you, not me. And I won’t let any of these people
talk shit about you.” He jabs a finger toward the party transpiring outside of
the smallest bathroom that ever existed. “And I’m not going to apologize for
looking out for you.”
“Cade,” I’m
breathless, quivering for him to stop talking and start touching. But I need to
be strong, resolute … honest. “I’m leaving in four months. I don’t do –”
“Serious, I
know. Me either.” His nose brushes against mine and I shiver. Shiver! “But give
me a shot, Lila. I’m not going to wifey you. Just let me take you out, kick it
with me, come to my games and rock my number, give it a chance.”
“What if
it’s too much?”
His fingers
close around my hips, tugging until my belly button is flush against his jeans.
Jesus. Need pools within me and as his fingertips grip harder, his body
grinding against mine, I whimper, desperate for relief from the wildfire
consuming me.
“What if
it’s too damn good?” he angles his head lower, his bottom lip ghosting mine.
“Let me light you up until we burn out. Babe, I’m not feeding you lines. I want
you, Lovely.”
