Hardwired Snippet #2

Snippet #2

(All excerpts are subject to change or deletion.)

We pulled up to the house, and Blake circled the car to let me out before I could figure out the handles. We walked the steps up to the entrance. When I paused to say goodbye, Blake pulled me close. The breath rushed out of me.

“You owe me a goodnight kiss, Miss Hathaway.”

Before I could respond, he covered my mouth with his own.  I melted into the kiss and the warmth of his body. Mercy, his lips. The stress of the morning became a distant memory, replaced with a hunger that neither of us was in a position to satisfy at the moment.

“Come home with me.” His voice was raw.

Somewhere in the distance, my inner voice started psychoanalyzing everything, pulling me out of the moment.

“I can’t.”

Technically, I could. In fact, I wanted nothing more than a repeat of my night in Blake’s Vegas pad, but I had no idea what that meant for my mental stability. I needed to focus on work. Getting screwed to oblivion by Blake on a regular basis probably wasn’t going to help me in that department.

“Dinner, then.”

“No,” I insisted. “Besides, you were hardly the perfect gentlemen last time.”

“Wasn’t I? As I recall, you were the one who asked for the tour of the bedrooms.”

He ground his hip into me, eliciting a whimper. I tried to care that we were in plain view of anyone passing by, but I worried more that I was slipping further away from myself and deeper into a dangerous attraction that already had its hooks in me.

“Blake, seriously, Vegas was…really great.” I paused, desperately trying to pull myself together. “I’m just not in a good place for this—whatever this is with us.”

I kissed him gently, breathing him in one last time before slipping from his grasp. He released me, but by wanting in his eyes, I could tell he wasn’t happy about it.

“Goodbye, Blake.”

  1. So far 50 Shades of Grey is #1 on my list of erotic books, it has to have a good story line to go with the steamy relationships, ill have to put this one next on my list of reads, will be looking forward to it!

  2. I have read the first two books in less then a week.. I am so hooked. I am sure you get tired of being compared to 50 Shades but those who LOVE that like I do need to know your series is so spectacular. My emotions are every where with these. I love that Blake is so much more open then Christian was. OMG I am 15 pages from ending the second book and now I have to wait 32 days!?!?!
    Sadly and Eagerly waiting,

  3. I have read the first two books of the hacker series in two days and I can’t wait until June 16th. It can’t get here soon enough. Love this series.

  4. I’m soo angry and annoyed at myself because I read both books in about a day and a half yes i know i had too much time at my hands and so little to do. I was absorb by this series that i actually forgot to eat anything the entire day i started to read. Yes am an obsessive reader as well, but anyways this books were so great that left me craving for more and to my darn luck i didnt realized that the 3 book wouldnt come out till june 16 leaving me sad, angry and annoyed b/c i feel like june its takin forever to get here. So far this week i read a total of 9 books hacker book 1-2 included but none capture my full attention like hacker series did i mean they were good but hackers were great
