Keep me Wanting

Congratulations to "Natalija", the winner in Angela's giveaway. Please contact JUST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE to claim your prize!

Keep me Wanting is all about taking chances, following your heart and fighting for what you believe in. Liam wants Maggie, even though he thinks he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. But how can he deny her when she makes it so damn hard to stay away?

“You must think this whole situation is really weird.” I put my glass down. “I mean the whole thing with me using your name with my mom and making her think you’re my boyfriend.” I wave my hand around. “I don’t usually do this.” I wince. “I mean, I don’t usually ask random men to pretend to be my boyfriend. Ever, actually.”                                     
“You don’t?” He cocks an eyebrow, and I can’t tell if he’s joking or not.                                       
Heat rises to my cheeks. “I didn’t know what to do. My mom—”                                       
His lips quirk again, and I realize that’s his version of a smile. “I get it, moms can be demanding.” He shrugs. “Sure, it caught me off guard at first. But I guess people do this kind of thing every day.”                         
I widen my eyes. “You think people ask other people to be a fake partner often?”                          
He hands me the plate, moving to close the distance between us. “No,” he says, his voice gruff, his eyes locked on mine.                                              
I put my wineglass down and lift a hand to accept the plate. My body is vibrating. He’s so close. I’m eye level with his neck, so I have to look up at him, and the dynamic of that makes me feel small, delicate almost. I like it.                                           
“I think people help one another out when they need it.”                                         
He reaches his hand out, like he’s about to put his hand on my waist, his eyes are locked on mine, and I feel this zing of chemistry that I’m sure he’s feeling, too. Until he blinks then drops his hand and takes a step back.                                   
“You did help me out.” I want him to touch me so badly. My body is shaking from all the pent-up lust. I put my plate on the table so I don’t drop it. “Thank you.” I bite my bottom lip. I feel giddy and reckless. I feel like I want to jump on this man and rub myself all over him.                               
Something flickers in his eyes. He nods, moves closer again, puts his hand on my jaw, cupping so that he can brush his thumb over my bottom lip, dislodging it from my teeth. “I like it when you do that.”                                         
I like it when you do that. His voice rolls down my spine. His body is so close, our chests brush as we breathe in one another’s scent. My pussy quivers. I’m soaking my panties something fierce. His nostrils flare, and he gets this look on his face that’s hard to read, like he’s holding himself back. Kiss me already!                                               
“Your stomach is growling.”                                     
I frown up at him. My eyesight is hazy, my brain fuzzy. “Hmmm?”                                    
“Let’s get some food into you. You’re obviously starving.”                                                 
I can hardly process what he’s saying. He takes a step back, and I lose that body heat of his. He wants food? How can he think of food at a time like this?
He motions to the stool next to the island where my plate is. “Go ahead, eat before it gets cold.”

“You want to eat?” I swear my brain has short-circuited. My nerves are buzzing, and I can’t make sense of how food could possibly compare to the possibility of that kiss or where that kiss could go.

He picks up a fork and offers me some tandoori. I open my mouth, letting him slide the food in. Oh hell yes, just the right balance of spicy heat that makes my whole mouth happy. It’s so good. My stomach yowls again, impatient for me to chew. When I open my eyes, he’s staring at me with an answering hunger in his eyes.

“You’re hungry. Eat.” He motions with his fork toward my plate. “Then we need to talk.”            

His tone is...blank. That’s the best word I’ve got for it. I chew quickly, because that doesn’t sound ominous at all.

  1. Happy release week, Angela. Thank you for sharing excerpt from the book. I’d love to see where romance take this barista and his sweet customer take them to! :)

    OMG, I SOOOO agree with all of this from my own perspective (except that I'm not a published author). The written word doesn't get the recognition nor respect that it did during previous centuries, and that's a shame.

    1. Laney4, It really doesn't get that level of recognition anymore does it? Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love this excerpt. I really want to know where the story goes.

  4. New to me author... thanks for sharing!

  5. I love books where the guy thinks he is the wrong kind of guy for the heroine. Looking forward to reading this one.

  6. Sexy cover! Thanks for sharing an excerpt!
