Title: Forbidden Agreement
Author: Mia Augustine
Genre: Contemporary Billionaire Romance
She’s left holding the bag and the billionaire... Drew Butler needs a wife. ASAP. But his matchmaker failed to show for their designated meeting. Now he’s doomed. But the understated beauty at the bar gives him another idea. A forbidden agreement that holds much more enticement.
Attorney, Samantha Felix, is tasked with informing a drunk billionaire in how he’s violated the terms of his contract with Weddings To Go. Instead, she falls right into his trap. Right into his bed.
Drew shoved a hand through his hair. “How did that happen?” Bindi Jamison had been Carson’s long-lost love from ten years ago. She was also the woman who’d screwed Carson over on their almost-wedding day, deserting his best friend at the altar.
Drew took a sip of his coffee and almost gagged. It was the worst coffee he’d ever had in his life.
“I couldn’t find creamer or sugar,” she told him.
There wasn’t enough cream and sugar in the whole world to help this cup. At least it was strong. He took another, smaller drink, and managed not to wince. It did help in clearing his mind of some of the cobwebs. “Where are they?”
“Apparently, he took a suite at the Plaza as well. I suspect he’s your neighbor.”
“I doubt it. He’s in a wing of the hotel. This place is considered a resident apartment. My family owns it.”
“Impressive.” She didn’t sound impressed.
Drew lowered his cup to the glass coffee-tabletop and stared at her. She was the attorney of the scam he’d fallen for, but he couldn’t remember her name. She was pretty with her long, dark blonde hair and bright hazel eyes. She wore a plain dress of nondescript beige topped with a classically cut jacket over it. Designer or not? Not his expertise. Nude heels appeared at the end of long legs. He couldn’t tell if her legs were bare or not. She was hot and he was obviously still halfway drunk.
He stood. “Would you excuse me?” He needed a minute to clear his head of clearing his head because he was definitely out of his blasted mind. He made his way to the bathroom upstairs and splashed cold water on his face. He never drank to excess. Apparently, the thought of his father choosing whom he should marry, in an ultimatum no less, was enough to send him into a spiral he hadn’t dived into since his freshman year at Yale.
Keeping his wits intact was vital. Not that he’d done a stellar job so far. There had to be a way to salvage this mess. Brushing his teeth went a long way toward making him feel human again; set his brain to humming, or maybe it was his... She really was hot, but she couldn’t make coffee for crap.
Drew went back down to the kitchen and took a bottled water out of the fridge and downed it, tossed the bottle in the recycle bin and grabbed another, then slowed his steps back to the great room. She sat with her back to him, leaning against the sofa, her long hair hanging over the back. His fingers tingled with want… a need to see if the heavy strands felt as silky as they looked.
She glanced over her shoulder at him. “No more coffee?”
It tastes like crap. “It did its job. It woke me up.” He went to the couch and took up the place he’d recently vacated; gripped his water. He didn’t quite trust himself not to touch her. The alcohol still raged through his blood—screamed at him—urging him to action. He was a beta male. Never a threat to anyone—something his father seemed to resent about him.
Yet Drew wanted to rip her clothes off. He set his water on the table, leaned back, stretched out his legs and crossed them at the ankles. “So… I don’t suppose you would consider marrying me.”
One nude pump plopped to the floor with a resounding thunk. He chanced a glance at her. His stomach dropped. The abominable coffee was poised at her lips, her eyes wide and unblinking. “Excuse me?” Her squeal hit the twelve-foot ceiling.
