He loops his arm around my neck like he’s about to give me a noogie, pulling me into his side. “Says the one who’s been talking for at least ten minutes in Paulina’s of all places.”
I cringe a bit as I stare at Amie. Instead of putting his knuckles on my head and rubbing them into my scalp, he brushes his lips against where I expect his fingers.
Her grin that’s been permanently plastered on her face since Holden made his presence widens, which I didn’t even realize was possible. “Masters?”
“Yeah,” he says.
Something shifts with her, and her smile turns into a sugary sweet expression. “Let me be clear.” Oh shit.
“Mhmm,” he mutters. Like he knows what’s coming. He should. At least, I think I do.
“I know you went through some really bad shit back in the day.”
I can’t see him, but I feel his jaw tick against my head. His grip tightens on me. This position is a bit awkward. It feels like I’m being held hostage. The way he’s holding me makes me hope, that this time, he’d lean on me instead of push me away when things get tough. And maybe hostage isn’t the best term to describe this. Hostages don’t want to be captured and never returned.
“Let me be clear. If you hurt her again, if you duck out like it’s nothing, so help me I’ll strangle you with my bare hands.”
Yep. This position was fun for a hot minute, but now I think I’d be okay if the ground swallowed me up so I could bail on this pissing contest between them.
Holden releases my head from the crook of his arm, but his hands are on either side of my face in an instant. He stares into my eyes for seconds that feel like hours, like there isn’t someone right in front of us. His thumb brushes my cheek, and I can’t help but lean into his touch. “I promise I won’t do that again.”
It’s like he’s answering Amie, but telling me. His lips dip down and tenderly kiss me. My heart skips a few beats. Partially because we shouldn’t be doing this in public already, but also because it feels so right. So. Damn. Right.
“Trust me when I say I’ve been waiting for this my entire life.” He smirks as he repeats the words I accidentally said to him last night in the cabana before releasing me and turns to Amie. “So, are you going to make yourself useful today, or do you need a little time to recover? You know, time to pick your jaw up from the floor?”
About JB McGee:J.B. McGee is a mother, wife, and the Amazon Top 100 author of the best-selling This Series. Amazon Crossing acquired the German rights to her debut novel, Broken. Heartfall, her coming of age novel about a bullied ballerina, is a #1 best seller in the Teen and Young Adult Performing Arts genre. Skipping Stones, a military romance about a young woman strongly influenced by her faith and her family all the while searching for her true love, is a #1 best seller in Women's Christian Fiction. When J.B.'s not writing, she enjoys reading as well as watching and live-chatting her favorite television shows with her friends. Her favorite shows are Quantico, Blindspot, Grey’s Anatomy, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Below Deck, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Scandal (mainly because of her love of Scott Foley). Born and raised in Aiken, South Carolina, she attended Converse College and eventually earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of South Carolina-Aiken in 2006. In college, she was told by her children’s literature professor she would be the one student from her class to be an author. McGee shook her head and laughed. But in 2012, over six years after that statement was made and after a love of reading had been reignited, she gave writing a shot. J.B. gladly ate crow when she emailed her first book to the above mentioned children’s literature professor thanking her and acknowledging the accuracy of her prophecy. In 2011, it was discovered that not only do both of her children, but also she and her husband, have mitochondrial disease. Affecting 1 in 2500 people, it has no cure or treatments. Being a writer allows J.B. to care for her family’s unique needs while also providing a platform for raising awareness for this disease. She is a hopeless romantic who loves to escape into fairy tales—some she reads and some she creates. J.B. McGee and her family now reside in Buford, Georgia.
