This book grabbed me right from the start. It throws you right in to the heart of things from the start gate an never let you go. There are so many emotions to have come at you in such a short time. I love how much was packed in to this short story. The delivery of the story was amazing it didn’t feel like it was rushed or that too much as being pushed at you. 

Ophelia has been through so much in her life. She has made a promise to herself and is sticking to it. Teodore came in to Ophelia life when she needs him the most and he is her rock even when she doesn’t know it. He is amazing and shows her just how much she is needed in this world.  

 

This was  an amazing and emotional read that you can’t put down.

Close up of a couple kissing

excerpt1

The sun was beginning to rise when I heard noises coming from the front door. Small knocks echoed in the cabin. Who could it be? I didn’t have friends here. It scared me but the curiosity stopped from going back to bed. I hope it wasn’t some jackass playing games on me. Quietly, I tiptoed to the door and opened it just a little to see who was hiding behind it.

“Baby?” My voice broke with emotion. “You travelled all the way here?” I jumped into his arms and kissed every inch of his face. I never expected to see him. My heart filled with joy, I couldn’t believe he was standing there at my door.

“For you, Ophelia, only for you, my baby. I love you so much.” He returned my kiss and his arms took me in a warm embrace. I missed those strong arms around me so much. I wanted to stay there forever.

“Come on in. It’s small but big enough for us.” I let him enter, never letting go of his hand, never leaving his sight. So many emotions were expressed only by the look in our eyes.

He let his backpack fall on the floor and he lift me into his arms. “You are gorgeous, baby, you are so fucking perfect. I want to give you the world and make you happy.” He laughed out of breath. “I’ve been thinking about what I would say to you for over sixteen hours, but seeing you here, now. There is only one thing you need to know. I’m in love with you and I want to share my life with you.”

“That makes two things,” I teased. “I am, too.” The words rolled off my tongue. “I’ve always love you and always will.”

We stood facing each other. Our past had been quite confusing at times. He’d waited for me, but whenever I was home, we were one. We acted like a couple, we were very involved physically. That was always our thing, our connection.

“Hearing you, seeing you telling me that you love me is everything I’ve ever wished for. I want to spoil you, make you see how happy you make me.”

“Show me.” I pulled him to me, holding his t-shirt. His touch had always meant everything to me. When we met, I’d been craving any kind of human affection. I wanted to be loved, I needed someone to hug me and make me feel safe and he was exactly that for me. Teo gave me the strength I needed to go on with my life.

“There is nothing else I rather do.” His lips crushed mine, taking possession of me. Our lips parted and our tongues met, hungry with desire. My hands hunted the skin of his waist, lifting off his t-shirt and feeling the warmth emanating for his body.

Teo didn’t waste more time, he removed the only clothing I was wearing, which was one of his old t-shirt that I had stolen before leaving.

“Baby, look at you, you’re incredibly sexy.” He whispered, nibbling on my earlobe.

My desire for him had me all mixed up. I wanted to push him on the couch, I wanted to undress him. I needed him to show me how much he loved me. “Let me get you out of that top.” I said, lifting it over his head and dropping it on the floor. I let my hands dance on his chest, enjoying the feel of his skin under my fingers. His muscles hardened under my touch.

“You’re driving me crazy.”

I chuckled shyly. My fingers grabbed hold of the belt of his jeans, pulling him toward my bedroom. The bed had to be the best place for what we had in mind. I undid his belt and unbuttoned his pants as we walked toward the room. His lips trailed a line of kisses from my lips to my jaw and then to the hollow of my neck. It sent shivers all over my body making my nipples pucker. I pushed his pants and underwear down and pulled him into the bed with me.

“You have no idea how many nights I’ve wished to have you here with me. You are the one I love Teo.”

“I love you. I’m never getting rid of you. Look at you,” he said admiring my body, feeling my breast with his hands. “You’re everything. My everything.”

With my both hands, I held his face and looked at him. Love reflected into his eyes and I hope he could see how much love I had in mine. I needed him to see it, to feel it. I had never loved someone that hard. It scared me but I knew he would always have my back. I trusted that he would find the perfect words to make me feel secure.

“I could get used to that look on your face. The one that says, oh Teo, you’re the man of my fantasies, the one I’ve been dreaming of all my life.” He mimicked my voice.

We both laughed.

“You’re an ass.”

“It was the first promise I made you, and I keep my promises.” He kissed my lips languorously. “I don’t know why it feels so different. We’ve been doing this for a very long time but it feels like it’s the first time in all those times that I own you, that you really are mine.”

“It’s because you do, I’m yours, baby, I’m yours.” I sighed. “I’m sorry that I kept you waiting all this time. It was very selfish of me. I can’t believe that you’re still here wanting me.”

He smiled and nodded. Maybe he was happy hearing me acknowledge all the effort he had made over the years.

“Enough talking now. I need to show my girl how much I missed her.”

Synopsis

Phoenix Silverstone more commonly known as Nix, is a twenty-one year old that has finally discovered her freedom. After living under the strict rules and protection of her mother, Nix moved out with her two best friends in a quaint little Seattle apartment. For the first time Nix is finally able to spread her wings and breathe. Together, they get a job working at a bar and for the first time everything is perfect.

Freedom, friendships, a great job and fantastic man on the verge of becoming hers. Tristan is the suave, intelligent, not to mention gorgeous law student that Nix has her eyes and heart set on. For the first time, she has her life together; that is, until her path crosses with Levi. The charming, tattooed and downright sexy bad boy that Nix knows she needs to avoid.

But when one of her friends moves out she is shocked to find that her new roommate is none other than Levi. Flirting. Desire. Undeniable temptations. Nix can’t deny the chemistry surging between them but she can’t forget her mother’s extreme hate towards bad boys.

Will Nix have the strength to listen to her heart? Or will her mother’s rules cost her everything?

Excerpt

After a few seconds, a strange sensation started spreading through my body. I lifted my eyes from the photos and my heart stopped. The blood drained from my face and I was pretty certain I was going to pass out. Ink boy was standing not three feet away from me. He had that perfect, sexy grin on his face and he was obviously happy to find me here.

”Are you stalking me now, princess?”

”Princess?” I repeated, with a quirk of my eyebrow.

”I know, I know. Geez, I’m sorry. What are you doing here…? Phoenix?” he asked in an alluring voice. The sound of his voice was so different here, without the club music pulsing in the background.

”What do you think I’m here for, Levi?”

”Are you always so feisty?” His voice sent shivers all over my body.

I nodded. ”My turn to say sorry – I never know how to act around you. You’re so… different.”

”Different? Is that all?” he asked cockily, his lips turning up in that damn smirk.

”You have the worst pickup lines I’ve ever heard.” I tried very hard not to, but I smiled for a split-second. It didn’t matter that I tried to suppress it – he saw me.

”Was that a smile I saw on your lips?” he grinned, stepping closer.

”What do you want from me?” I asked. Why did we pick this shop? Of all the tattoo shops we could have gone to, we had to pick the one place where he hung out? What were the odds?

”You’re the one who’s here, in my shop, so I should be asking you what you want. Are you here for a tattoo?”

”They’re all here for a tattoo. Stop harassing my client, jackass.” The tattoo artist who was prepping Bekka turned to grumble at Levi.

Irritated, Levi looked at the tattoo artist. ”No,” he began, shaking his head. “This one is mine, Kyle. I’ll be the only one marking her.” Levi turned back to me. ”What are you getting tonight? I’ll be taking care of you.”

I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest. ”A star. A pink star. He has the design,” I said, my voice trembling slightly, as I nodded toward Kyle.

He marched over to Kyle, got the design, and looked at me again. He seemed disappointed. ”Well, I was hoping for something a bit bigger. It’ll only take fifteen to twenty minutes. Are you a virgin?”

What? Was he seriously asking me such a private question in the middle of a shop? ”Hummm…”

”Tattoo virgin, I meant. Have you ever had a tattoo before, Phoenix?” he asked, obviously amused by my flushed face. I shook my head and he glanced down at the design again. ”Are you sure you don’t want your star to be filled in with red? It kind of suits your skin.”

I shook my head, not certain I wanted him doing my tattoo. I didn’t want to know the artist. It would be a lot easier, a lot less intimate, a lot less personal. Not that I knew Levi well, but I was nervous around him, and factoring in the location of where I wanted the tattoo – my nerves reached an all-time high.

”Are you sure you don’t want something a little bigger? It’s a pretty small tattoo.”

”It’s the only tattoo I’m ever going to get and I don’t want it any bigger. This is perfect.”

”We’ll see about that. Where do you want it?” he asked, his eyes roaming across my body.

I pointed to the exact spot where I wanted the tattoo, my eyes never leaving his. Being so close to him was challenging, my stomach was filled with butterflies and the need to touch him and get a closer look at his ink was driving me crazy.

His gaze lowered to where I was pointing, a position just about my pubic bone. ”Okay, I see,” his voice husky. “You’ll have to lower your pants or I’ll get ink all over them.”

”Don’t worry about it. It’s alright.” I wanted to shake my head at my own stupidity. I’d already admitted he made me nervous, I didn’t need to sound like such an idiot!

He smiled and it’s beauty surprised me – it was like seeing him for the first time. This was a glimpse of the real Levi – not the tatted up bad boy with cheap pickup lines. My cheeks grew hot as I blushed at this latest discovery.

”Are you ready?” He offered me his hand and I took it, not knowing why, but I did. It was almost an involuntary reaction. Val was sitting next to Bekka and they both stared at us in disbelief, their gaze taking in our joined hands. This wasn’t normal behaviour for me and both of my friends knew it.

He led me to his work area. ”I’m Levi, by the way.”

”I know, you told me your name last night. I’m Nix.”

”I know. You can sit down here and lower your pants for me. Don’t worry, I’ll be gentle.” He was trying to hide a smile, but I wasn’t stupid. I knew there was a double meaning behind his words and his smirk was due in part to my obvious discomfort.
