Falling in love isn’t always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go…
Nineteen year-old Emma Harrington’s number one rule is; Never give your heart away to a man, no matter what. That lesson was learned early on in her life and she will never forget it.
Starting over in the USA, Emma starts college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do and live how she wants and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.
That is until Scott Mason walks on stage…
Intense, bad boy Scott is the lead singer in a local and popular rock band. Ladies man and Ashley’s longtime friend, Emma is instantly drawn to him, even though he is everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette; light it, use it, and lose it.
For her cousin’s sake, she makes an effort to get along with Scott. She soon discovers that there is more to Scott which makes him even more dangerous in her eyes. Underneath the façade of friendship; jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurities, fester and battle it out as she fights her attraction and history from repeating itself.
One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.
Check out this ‘rock your socks off’ excerpt ♥
I had never picked up a guitar in my life — and it showed. Scott handed me a beautiful, black acoustic guitar. I didn’t even know how to hold it but I tried my best, and at least Scott was smiling again, which is what I had aimed for.
He chuckled and moved his hand down over his face to try to hide his amusement. “You don’t hold it like that…Here…”
I was sitting on the edge of a big footstool and he came to sit behind me. He shifted forwards until I was sitting between his hard, warm thighs. I was so aware of him that I froze. I didn’t dare move. He came closer and put his arms around me to reach the guitar. His naked chest came into contact with my back, making my core temperature rise to dangerous levels. His scent was enveloping me, taunting me, and this time there was no escape.
His head peered over my shoulder causing the hairs on the back of my neck to stand on end.
“Hold it like this,” he whispered close to my ear as he moved my hand into the right position.
His breath tickled me, making a shudder run down my back.
He paused for a second and I thought he had noticed. “And if you,” he slid his hot hand under my thigh gently and lifted it for me until only my toes were touching the floor, “raise your knee, you can rest it here.”
“Okay,” I whispered. It was all I was capable of saying with his hands all over me. Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea.
He took his hands away and rested them on my thighs. “Now try.” His voice was gruff.
I started playing but my mind was focused on the parts of my body that he was touching. I was dreadful. He was just so there that I couldn’t have concentrated if my life had depended on it.
He turned his face towards my neck and I heard him inhale through his nose gently. His grip on my thighs tightened as he shifted closer to my backside and his forehead hit my shoulder heavily.
Shit! I’m going to spontaneously combust any goddamn bloody minute now if he doesn’t stop.
