Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Lost My Senses #1
There's only one person I want to see when I return home. But I know he won't be waiting. It's the reason I feel safe enough to come back.
I’m so wrong.
Ash Townsend isn't the same quiet boy from next door. He's tall, dark, and demanding answers. He wants me, but he doesn't trust me. Who can blame him? When his own family tried to break him down, he still sheltered me in this town full of liars. And I repaid it by leaving him without a word.
Because I'll do anything to protect Ash. I have the scars on my wrist to prove it.
A ribbon of anger surged to life. He just had to put on a show for her and all the others watching. Last year we’d been careful to hide our relationship. Now that it no longer existed, he wanted to flaunt it. “You shouldn’t have done that.”
“And you shouldn’t have lied to my face.” He scowled, his face thunderous. “If we’re keeping score.”
“I didn’t lie. Trevor didn’t get a chance to touch me.” I touched my swollen lips. “I’d already taken care of it by the time you showed up.”
“I wasn’t talking about Trevor.” He braced a hand next to my head on the wall.
A breeze rose up and my hair fluttered into my face, covering my eyes. I brushed the strands away while Ash reached toward me to do the very same thing. He quickly lowered his arm to his side. My whole body pulsed in disappointment, and it struck me how this was a split-second snapshot of our story.
I attempted to walk away, but he braced his other hand on the wall, caging me within his arms. I forced myself to look him in the eye. Really look at him, and let him look at me. I owed him that much. His gaze stayed on my eyes, daring me to hold the connection.
To my surprise, he’d changed. Ash had always been handsome, but his face had taken on an edge, losing some of the softness of youth. Only his eyes were the same, starbursts of green and gold fringed with black lashes. But the shape of his jaw was stronger, his cheekbones sharper.
I bit the inside of my cheek. His nose wasn’t blade-straight anymore. There was a slight tilt and bump, as if it had been broken. And there was a small pink scar over one of his eyebrows. Possessiveness overtook my thoughts. I wanted to know what had happened, who hurt him and where I could find them so I could tear them apart myself. I gave myself a mental shake.
He wasn’t mine to be possessive about. Or maybe I meant obsessive.
“We need to talk,” he demanded. “You made me think you left for Michigan when you took off.”
“You know how I am.” I tilted my head to hide the fact that I was lying to his face again. "I just decided at the last minute, and didn’t think.”
“Bullshit.” He leaned close. The cool night air around us thickened as his breath tickled my cheek. “Changed your phone number and deleted all your email accounts at the last minute, too?”
Regret gnawed relentlessly through to my heart. I couldn’t do this with him tonight. Or ever. I ducked under his arm and started walking toward my truck.
Up for grabs is s $50 visa gift card and a $25 iTunes gift card. Open INT.
About the Author:
I can cook like a fiend but prefer to eat doughnuts with sprinkles for breakfast. Sprinkles make everything taste better. An avid reader of all genres, I shamelessly admit romance will always be my favorite. And while I enjoy the safe and familiar, I’m always up for an adventure.
