Excerpt:


Gabe smiled, a flat, frustrated smile. “…I understand. It’s just...” He took her hands and moved in close, an inch from her mouth. “I want to kiss you so much; I can already taste you.”


Jade was so attracted to him, if she let him kiss her, she didn’t trust herself not to stop. Then she did stop because it was the right thing to do.


All she had to do was picture Rick in her mind, how he was so attracted to her with his kisses and desire then backed off. If she couldn’t predict what Rick would do, this thing with Gabe was even more unpredictable. And even though Rick never followed through, she still recalled how good his body and lips felt on hers. With such confusion, she wasn’t ready for this.


She didn’t want to blow the friendship with Gabe—she enjoyed it too much. Backing away, she looked at him with complex emotions in her eyes. “We can’t do this tonight, Gabe. I’m still confused. Wouldn’t you want me to be free and clear of other people before I gave in to your extremely hot advances?”


Gabe stepped back and crossed his arms. “I suppose. I mean, yes, I do want you to be sure. And I don’t want to jeopardize our friendship. We have a really close connection, don’t you think?”


“I do.”


He touched her cheek. “Good. Let’s take it slow, keep enjoying our friendship and see where it goes.”


“Perfect. Sounds like a perfect plan.” Like you, Gabe, perfect in so many ways. But she let her sentiments go as he walked toward the door, leaving her for the night with her body revved for intimacy but hungry for love. After hearing Gabe’s history, she wondered if he was even capable of deep love. Men made advances for many reasons, especially needing sexual fulfillment. It was easy to confuse sexual intimacy with real emotion or love. Gabe was a complicated man. So was Rick. And therein was her dilemma.


But better to live with a dilemma than move too fast and get involved in another disastrous heartbreak. None of them deserved more heartache in their lives.
