Read an Excerpt
Holly rolled to her side, plucked a daisy, and pulled off the first white petal. “He loves me,” she said in a sing-song tone. “He loves me not.” She slid to his side as she tossed the next petal over her shoulder. As she continued, he mentally counted ahead of her and was pleased that the game ended in his favor.
But she put the daisy down when there were three petals left and picked up her glass. What the hell?
“Hey,” he protested, narrowing his eyes. “You didn’t finish.”
She shrugged. “It’s all fun and games.”
He didn’t know why it mattered so much, but it did. Even though he knew it was silly, he couldn’t let it go.
“You can’t stop in the middle.” He took her glass and put it on the ground.
She gave him a playful nudge. “Who are you—the game cop?”
He caught her wrist and rolled on top of her. “Maybe I am,” he said, his voice low and husky. “Maybe it matters.”
She pushed him off her and reversed their positions so she was on top. “I’ll give you something that matters.”
He liked where this was going. Grinning, he lifted his palms. “I’m at your beck and call.”
She let out a low laugh. The soft, sexy sound reverberated through his insides, making him feel playful and nostalgic, and with Holly stretched on top of him, a little randy, too.
“Whatever I want?” she asked, her breath hot against his cheek.
