I roll out the chair next to Carmyn, but she still doesn't look up as I sit. "Something I can help you with there, miss?"
She startles and closes her notebook over her arm. "Oh my God. You scared me."
"You did appear to be deep in thought."
"What the hell are you doing here?" She glances around, her shoulders tensing.
"I have class. Same as you, I'm guessing."
"And you're planning on sitting here?" She's definitely stressed.
"Well, yeah." I raise my eyebrows. "I am sitting here, Captain Obvious."
She pinches her lips in a tight line and shakes her head. "Uh-uh. You can't sit here." She lowers her voice. "People are already talking."
"People are always talking. So what's new?"
"Well, now they're talking about me," she practically squeals. Her voice is passionately angry, but it's still passionate and reminds me of her saying my name while underneath me the other night.
"I hate to be the one to break it to you, little brunette bunny, but they have always talked about you."
"They have not."
I nod my head. Oh, they have.
"Not like this."
"Are you saying that people knowing you," I drop my voice, “and me … humiliates you? Because I'll have you know that I have not slept with nearly half as many of the women in this school who claim I have."
She huffs and rolls her eyes. So much spunk. When she channels that into her kiss, it's electric. "I doubt that."
I shrug. "It is what it is. Even if I could prove it to you, it wouldn't make you feel any less embarrassed, would it?" I'm somewhat affronted with her response. I've had women pissed at me for not calling them after, angry at me for sleeping with someone else the next day, or just plain crazy after sleeping with me, but I’ve never experienced this.
"Probably not, but can we please not talk about this here?" She looks around, and I notice that the seats are filling up quick.
I have to change her mind about this. About me. "Only on the condition that we talk about it tomorrow. At the Rusty Nail. Eight o'clock."
Her jaw drops. "That sounds an awfully lot like a date."
"Do you like people making assumptions about you based on one thing you say, or one thing you do?"
She arches a brow. "Touché."
"I don't date and I don't do relationships, so you have nothing to worry about."
She starts to speak, but I roll right over her with my words. "Before you answer, you should be aware that if you say no right now, we will continue to discuss this very private topic in this very public place."
Her maple-colored eyes reflect the red from my T-shirt as she glares at me. "Do you have twenty bucks on you?"
"Yeah, why?" Where the hell is she going with this? I thought I had the upper hand here.
"For the cab to the Rusty Nail tomorrow night."
I grin and shake my head. "Well, all you had to do was say so." I lift up enough to pull out my wallet, grab an Andrew Jackson, and tuck it into her palm. "Eight o'clock. You stand me up, and I'll tell everyone you have a mole on your ass."

Length: 220 pages
Publisher: Accendo Press (September 22, 2013)
Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother's affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she's planned. She's planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.
Dallas Brown lives a life all his own. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations but his own.
When Carmyn's fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can't seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she'd planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.
As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.
