My Brother’s Best Friend by Nikki Chase
I’ve loved him for as long as I can remember.
Now he’s back, and I’m finally old enough for the ride of my life.
Gabriel Kent was driven out of town 8 years ago because of my family.
And if he knew who I was, he wouldn’t have anything to do with me.
So I can’t tell him now… can I?
I used to scribble his name all over my notebook, surrounded by little hearts. He treated me like his own sister, but I wanted more. I wanted to have his last name and wear his ring on my finger.
Then tragedy struck, and he had to leave the country. All because of my family.
Something magical happens: he finally sees me as a woman, and not the girl he left. I sense desire in his hungry gaze, and his dominant, intoxicating touch.
But that’s only because he doesn’t recognize me.
The way he undresses me with his eyes under the moonlight… I can’t break the spell and tell him the truth.
It’s okay if I don’t tell him, right? It’s only for one night. He’s made it clear he doesn’t do relationships, and I just want him to be the one to take my virginity.
Except one night turns into two, and then three, and then I’m so in over my head that I don’t know what to do. I think I’m screwed, but not in the good way.
Nothing is going to be the same when I finally come clean.
