Duis ut nisl in mi eleifend faucibus egestas aliquet arcu. All their friends crowded around, cheering them on. My face is wet with tears, just like it always is. One of them must be up. I slip my phone back in my pocket and follow Pompous Ass to the door.
I feel a frown pull my eyebrows together when I pull up out front and have to park behind a Mercedes. And that third brother, too. Well, as quiet as a room situated above a club filled with this many people can get. The burn of the hot water temporarily deadens the intensity of everything else. They stop at the last minute, so I stop whisking to listen. I want you tied to me in every way a man can be tied to the woman he loves. I know only a few of them.
You used me for my position, to get close to my father, to keep your job at the firm. I think all that time at sea warped his brain. I totally fell in love with Cash Davenport In Down to You and Up to Me, and I have been dying to read Nash Davenport's story in Everything for Us. And Duffy, even though he was the actual triggerman and deserves a painful death, will be on the run for the rest of his life. Nam interdum justo eget nisi pulvinar et condimentum orci bibendum. I literally felt the change in her even though this is the first time we get her perspective. I walk through to his apartment and slam that door as well, feeling infinitesimally better having gotten some of my aggression out.
Nothing I had any interest in. Today is a day for celebration. Jensen stops in front of me and the room gets quiet. The voltage of the gesture, as well as the sincerity, dims considerably when I see Cash poised there instead. Leighton knows how to make sexy bad-boys that can steal your breath with a single look. There will be lots to celebrate tonight.
And the desire to stop thinking for just a little while. Nash Davenport is the darker of the Davenport twins, and once you know his history, you will understand why. Well, probably not to realize it. I remember with perfect clarity. All I can do is take things a day at a time. She also realizes that she wants the dark, sexy Nash Davenport more than anything.
Stiffly, I ease into a slow swim toward one of the several ladders that dot the length of the dock. After a few more seconds of staring at me, Nash turns gingerly onto his unwounded side. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down. Sed aliquam, urna ut sollicitudin molestie, lacus justo aliquam mauris, interdum aliquam sapien nisi cursus mauris. I squelch the urge to walk over and rip his throat out. I like the style and look forward to reading more of her work. The thing that makes me angriest is that Cash is right.
Her hair is up with a few strands dangling down over her shoulders. My tongue slips easily into her mouth. My mind races with questions that have no answers and images that haunt me from the darkness. I need to take this victory and move on. Buying the boat and planning for a life at sea was a good choice. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus.
Much to her detriment, probably. The jeans and long-sleeved T-shirt—my nod to the early spring nip in the night air—have already put me at ease. Very minimal wear and tear. I pull it out and look at the lighted screen. My plan A is and will always be to put a bullet in Duffy and any of the other involved parties I can identify and get my hands on.
I know when a woman is already mine. To distance myself from him. And have I always been this undeserving of it? How does it feel to be a whole twenty-two years old? I feel like I should be doing something to hurry this god-awful ride along. I think about her too often, even when I try not to. A book that does not look new and has been read but is in excellent condition. You found me and you saved me.
