SUMMER SIZZLE erotic romance by Samantha Gentry
R-EXCERPT #3 (we need to talk about this)
He smoothed her hair away from her damp face. “Vicki, we need to talk about—”
“No.” She placed her fingertips against his lips. “Please don’t make more of this than it is. I want you to know I’m not in the habit of falling into bed with every man I meet, with men I’ve only known a few hours. You and I…we don’t have anything in common. Our lifestyles and goals are completely different, but there’s obviously something about our body chemistry, something pulling us—”
Now it was Blake’s turn to place his fingertips against her lips to stop her words. “I never thought for a moment that you promiscuously hopped into bed with every man who crossed your path. If you don’t want to talk about this right now, we can wait until—”
Vicki stopped his words with a kiss. Even though it felt strange with neither of them mentioning what had happened the night before, she didn’t want to confront the truth. Didn’t want to deal with where it could lead. Two ships passing in the night. As different as could be in what they wanted from life…except in bed where they both wanted the exact same thing. To fuck each other into exhaustion and satisfy every carnal desire. The best thing to do was simply leave it at that. Accept it for what it was—two people with an incredible case of the hots for each other and nothing more. A short term situation with no long term consequences to consider.
At least, that’s what she wanted to believe. She couldn’t allow a thought to the contrary. No way would she entertain the possibility of anything more with this man. She had her entire future planned out, and he absolutely did not fit into that plan. Nothing about him fit into her life even though everything about his body fit with hers.
“We have to talk about this, Vicki. Not now, apparently, but sometime soon. This is too hot. Too all consuming. Much too…”
He lives only for today…she has eyes on tomorrow.
Growing up, Victoria Templeton watched her mother scrape for every penny and vowed that would never be her. She’s become a woman so busy worrying about tomorrow, she doesn’t allow time for today. And she has plans for the summer that don’t include sharing a house with a carefree beach bum with no ambition, even one with a signed lease and a smokin’ hot bronzed body.
The tragic loss of his six year old son caused Blake Callahan to learn the hard way no one is guaranteed a tomorrow. He now lives only for today—wine, women, and flying kites on the beach. Until an uptight female with soulful eyes and mouth-watering curves invades his beach house, claiming it’s hers for the summer.
Forced to share the place until the mix-up is straightened out, Blake and Vicki find they have nothing in common…except a sizzling heat that has nothing to do with summer.
