I’m so excited to be at Just Contemporary Romance today, to share an exclusive excerpt of my latest release, Hold Me Until Forever, the third of my Grayson Brothers books. This is the eldest brother Alex’s story, and I love this bad boy so much J
She’s the only one he wants…and the one he can never have
Ella Clark has been in love with Alex Grayson forever. She’s tired of being invisible—or worse, being treated like his kid sister. If she can just get him to drop his iron-fisted control for two seconds, she’ll prove she knows exactly how to blow his mind.
Alex has been fighting his attraction to Ella since her should-have-been-innocent sweet sixteen kiss burned down his world. He’s damaged, and there’s no way he’ll ever drag her into his screwed up life. Until she offers him something he’s always craved—steamy, no-strings sex inside his exclusive BDSM club. Where she’ll be safe from the darkness that haunts him.
Except there’s nothing safe about being with Ella, and the more she gives, the harder it is to let her go. If he stays, he risks everything, but how can he walk away from the only woman he’s ever needed?
Ella stared up at him, her lips parted in a soundless breath. She was so damn sexy it hurt. She was tough, but right now she gave off an irresistibly vulnerable vibe that pushed all his hot buttons.
She sounded all soft and submissive, willing to put her body in his hands for the night. He swallowed a groan. Does she really know what she’s agreeing to?
“Are you sure?” He pulled her close so there was no chance of them being overheard. “Once I get you alone, you’re mine until I let you go.”
She didn’t pull back. “That’s why I’m here.” She trailed her fingers along his jaw. She’d never touched him like that before. Not in eight years. “I don’t want you to let me go.”
That’s what I’m afraid of. That once he had her, it wouldn’t be enough. That he wouldn’t be able to set her free.
For fuck’s sake, focus. He wasn’t thinking about forever. He wasn’t even thinking about next week. Tonight was all they had for sure.
“There’s something you need to understand.” He cradled her face. Her skin was so soft. “I won’t make you do anything you’re not comfortable with. But if you walk through the door with me, you agree to play by my rules.”
“I can handle that.”
“I haven’t told you what they are yet.”
She pressed her hand against his chest. “You want me to sign a contract or something?”
“Tempting.” But they didn’t need a contract for this. It was only going to be casual, and kept strictly inside Excalibur.
Keep telling yourself that. It didn’t matter what way he looked at it. Even if this lasted only one night, it was always going to be more than just a casual hookup when it came to Ella.
And that was the danger.
