“It’s hard for me to resist you. Incredibly hard,” he says, his voice rough with desire and innuendo.
I am racing, speeding out of anger and charging headfirst into lust. But I have to hold up the warning sign on one very important point.
“I won’t,” he says.
I make a choice to believe him. I make a choice to trust. And I make a choice to tell him something that became crystal clear to me last night. Barely under my breath, I say, “I can’t write. Because of you.”
“What?” It’s as if I just knocked the wind out of him. He pulls back to meet my gaze.
“Because of this.” I gesture from him to me.
“What do you mean?”
“Because I like you. Because I want you, and it’s messing with my head. And I can’t focus on writing. The only songs I’ve managed are angry ones. Like the one you said sounded like Crushed. I can’t write about how I’m feeling because I don’t know how to write when I’m starting to feel like this.”
“I suppose I should take it as a compliment that I’m the cause of your writer’s block?”
“What are we going to do about that, then?” he asks, and I love that he says we, that somehow we’re in this together. “What do you want to do about it?”
At first, I have no idea. But then I let that word resonate. Want.
“I know what I want,” I say, and my voice is breathy as he trails his thumb along my jawline.
“I want to break down your resistance,” I whisper.
He tenses momentarily, then cups my chin, so I’m looking at him. “What do you mean?”
“Fuck,” he says, breathing out a long stream of air.
“Can I?” I look him in the eyes, needing this so desperately. “I want you to come undone for me.”
He looks as if he’s buzzed; his expression is hazy. He shakes his head several times, as if he’s trying to clear his brain as he scrubs a hand across his jaw. “I’m going to tell you something about straight men,” he says, and then he swallows. “When you’re into a woman, and she says she wants to give you a blow job, there’s never any answer but yes. And now. And let me go hail a fucking cab immediately.”

Jane Black has written the break-up album of the century, earning her a Grammy, a huge legion of new fans, and the pressure to repeat her success. Sure, the heartbreak from her husband’s unconventional abandonment might have been her inspiration, but it hasn’t done her any favors in the dating department. So when Matthew Harrigan, the toughest music journalist out there, asks for an interview, Jane agrees—as long as her personal life is completely off-limits.
British, gorgeous, and way too tempting, Matthew’s the first guy Jane’s been attracted to since her husband. As she spends more time with him and their relationship heats up, though, so does her writer’s block. How can the queen of the break-up pen the perfect follow-up when she’s seriously in love?
