Seven years ago, I gave my vow to a man.
Except it wasn't at a wedding...
Because Brett Jackson was the epitome of anti-marriage--a dirty-talking tattoo artist with a penchant for booze, bimbos and blue-eyed women.
I was none of those.
Guess that's why he walks into my new apartment with my not-so-nice roommate on his arm...as her new boyfriend.
But this is not seven years ago. I'm over him; I really am.
So why does it bother me so much when he catches me naked in my new place? Why does his searing stare at my body stay with me?
Why am I wishing for a repeat and wanting to break the most important vow I've ever made?
A vow that will break both me and Brett...and turn the Manhattan life I've built for myself upside down.

Breathless, my body shaking, I pull back just as our kiss begins to deepen, my lips tender to the touch as I lick them. I look up at the brown-haired Adonis holding me close, inhaling as deep as I can. I let go of a shaky breath.
âWhat are you doing?â
Brett blinks. âWhat you wonât. What I shouldnât.â He kisses me chastely, pulling back. âWhat we need.â He grins. âI couldnât hold back any longer.â
âYou make us sound like dogs on a leash.â
He snorts on a soft laugh, his stare scanning over my lips. âIf anyoneâs a dog here, itâs me. But I canât deny you, Elsie.â He gaze goes back up to mine. âI canât deny this. I know we made a promise. To never cross this line again. But thereâs a reason weâre both here in New York. Thereâs a reason for right now. To be honestâ¦ I donât know what the hell it really is.â His aqua eyes glow. âBut I know I want to explore it.â His voice lowers. âExplore youâ¦ If you let me, Elsie. All of thisâeverythingâis up to you.â
But I canât think, let alone move or talk while our bodies are so close. He smells like the rain. Clean and crisp. A fresh, lightly smoky scent, the skin that is pressed against me as is almost as intoxicating as the stareâthe one that intensely searches mine, excavating answers, digging deep enough to find only fucking desire, Iâm sure. Iâm so turned on I canât speak. My voice is little more than a sigh. I bite my bottom lip, trying to control my tongue.
âWe canât throw caution to the wind, Brett. We have Kayla to think about. And even if we didnât, we have history, too much past. Weâve practically watched each other grow up. Stayed in the same houses.â I scoff out loud, a blush hitting my cheeks that I can feel burn. âFor Godâs sake, youâve seen everything. Youâve seen me at my worst.â
He chuckles, a seductive low sound. âMy sexy sweet Elsie. You donât get it, do you? In my eyesâ¦ you have no worst.â
