Synopsis Readers asked for it, and JC Valentine has delivered! Life has thrown me a few curveballs… But nothing as sexy or devastating as Alejandro. I never thought I’d see him again, but fate has seen fit to give us another chance. Maybe this time we’ll get it right. Maybe this time he’ll stay. Or perhaps my heart is about to be irrevocably shattered. One way or another, our lives are about to change. Only time will tell if it’s for better or worse, but one thing is certain… Alejandro is a force to be reckoned with…maybe even best to be avoided. But when it comes to matters of the heart, sometimes there’s no reasoning. Sometimes…it’s pure instinct. Taking a chance on him is like playing Russian roulette—it’s dangerous…foolish…and likely to kill me. But what’s life without a little risk?
Excerpt Silence persists, and my heart thunders in my ears as I wait to hear what he has to say next. I feel as though we’re standing on a precipice, and the worst thing is, I have no clue what awaits me on either side of it. No matter which way it goes, I’m going to fall—hard. “I really missed you,” Alejandro says, and suddenly, it’s as if I can finally breathe again. That’s it. I can’t stand it anymore. Even the console is too much distance. Taking matters into my own hands, I unsnap my seatbelt, Put the coffee cup on the dashboard, and lean over. Cupping his jaw, I kiss him with everything I’ve got. He needs to know how much I missed him, too, and no words would ever do it justice. Instead, I show him. With him holding the back of my head and me holding his face, we throw ourselves into the kiss. Between us, our fingers twine together on the console…but it just doesn’t feel close enough. I allow my hand to roam down to his neck, feeling the corded muscles, his rapid pulse beating against my palm, then I move lower to his chest, his waist, around to his back. I grip his shirt tight, fighting the need to pull him closer. He’s not fairing any better. Transferring his hand to my thigh, Alejandro curls his fingers under my knee and hitches my leg up. I know what he wants. It’s the same thing I want. Maybe more. Briefly, I consider telling him no, but I can’t bring myself to do that. There’s no denying him. “Come here,” he murmurs against my mouth as he tugs me to him, guiding the way. In the back of my head a voice screams that we’re going to get caught, but I’m already climbing into his lap, bracketing his legs with my own as he pushes the seat as far back as it will go to make room. My ass hits the horn, and it blares into the quiet morning. We both glance up and around, as if two teenagers about to get caught. But it’s just us. I grin then pull him back to me for another kiss. I can’t get enough of this man. His hands are under my shirt, cupping my breasts. The heat of his palms is an aphrodisiac in itself, but the taste of him on my tongue and the hard ridge of his cock between my legs is what threatens to send me over the edge.
