Lacey began to walk towards the bus stop when I grabbed her arm firmly and hauled her to a waiting Range Rover. She looked up at me in shock. âWhat are you doing?â âShut up and get in,â I growled. In a mood like I was in, I had seen grown men nearly piss their pants. This woman stepped closer and spat out, âDonât order me around.â âAre you shittinâ me? After the stunt you just pulled, I should take you over my knee and paddle your sweet ass. Now, do as I say,â I demanded. Her eyes widened. âYou wouldnât actually do that, would you?â âSweetness.â I barked out a humorless laugh. âThe only reason I wonât is because you arenât mine. But mark my words; I wonât hesitate whether or not you are mine if you ever do something that irresponsible again.â âI thought I could handle it.â She took a step backwards as her lip began to tremble. âHa! You thought wrong,â I pointed out. That was when she climbed into the SUV of her own accord, but she wouldnât look at me. I gave my driver the go ahead to take us back to my place. Iâd be damned if she spent the night away from me. Part of me didnât trust her. The other, wanted to ensure her safety at all costs. Unsure of which one was stronger, I inquired, âAre you hungry?â She shook her head, still refusing to turn towards me. Hell no. I leaned over and gently cupped her chin, bringing her face to mine. I was surprised to discover her eyes were bright red, tears still flowing. That particular sight did something to me. Filled with a need to comfort, I undid my seatbelt and hers. I pulled her onto my lap and offered, âMy shoulder is right here. Go ahead and let it all out.â She buried her face against my neck and did just that. After a few more minutes, she pulled back as she wiped her eyes. âI didnât know,â she admitted. âI never wouldâve gone there if I had.â Tenderly, I stroked her cheek. âI figured that out after I railed at you. Iâmââ âYou were right,â she interrupted before I could finish apologizing. Something I didnât normally do. She continued, âIt was beyond stupid. If it werenât for youâ¦Well, we both know what wouldâve happened.â I wasnât fully convinced she did comprehend what those assholes were about to do. Even though I didnât want to give her nightmares, she needed to know at least some of it. âThose men didnât just plan to gang rape you, Lacey. They were pimps. You wouldâve gone to the highest bidder.â Her head bowed. I reached underneath and gently lifted her chin, so our eyes met. âPromise me, never again.â She attempted a nod. Not good enough. âSay the words,â I commanded. I watched the tip of her pink tongue as it ran along her lips, before she answered, âNever again will I go to such a place without you.â âAnd?â I persuaded. She swallowed and replied, âI promise.â âGood,â I acknowledged, before I leaned forward and brushed my lips against hers. Damn, she was so sweet. I knew I needed to stop, but then she opened to me on a moan. My resistance snapped as I devoured her mouth with mine, staking a claim I didnât want. Yet, there was no denying that was exactly what I had just done. Mine, a feral part of me growled as I continued to take without apology. She was the first to pull away. Her breath staggered as she confessed, âI want you.â âYou should stay away from me,â I growled. âI know. But I need your help to find Keeley.â I closed my eyes to break the connection between us. As if that were even possible. The fire continued to blaze between our bodies, so I eased her off my lap. After I redid our seatbelts, I spoke, âYou have my word. Iâll help you.â Before I could finish, she professed, âBut that canât happen again. We can only be friends.â âRight.â I smiled self-deprecatingly. âNo matter how much I want to fuck you.â She took in sharp breath as her eyes darkened with desire. I couldâve had her then and there. I knew it. She knew it. But that would only complicate things. So I held out my hand to shake hers. Once she placed her hand in mine, I declared, âI wonât act on my desires.â In deep concentration she bit her lip, and then answered, âAgreed.â How the hell I thought I would pull that off, I had no idea. Though I knew I had to tryâfor her sake, and mine.
