My mind says Hell no. My body says Yes please. My heart says You’ve really done it this time.
Ward thinks I’m still hung up on him? Please.
Who would want that chiseled body? Those broad shoulders? Those strong hands shredding my clothes and exploring every inch… Not me. I got my shallow infatuation out of my system and learned my lesson.
I should be lusting after someone who enjoys the same things I do. Someone who’s read a poem or seen a play. Someone who actually thinks more than one night ahead. Not some gorgeous, alpha jock who runs a watering hole and loves to make me blush.
It’s frustrating that he thinks just because he’s handsome and a college football legend that women should be lining up to spend a night with him.
It’s even more frustrating that part of me wants to cut to the front of the line.
Underneath Ward’s attitude, and despite his teasing, there’s something that keeps me coming back for more. And it’s not just the fact that I work for him.
Before that last tackle ended my NFL career ten years too early, I spent a very memorable, very drunk night with my sister’s friend Emma.
Now she’s working in my bar, and I’m suddenly questioning my commitment to non-commitment.
Emma’s too smart for a guy like me, and she knows it. Yet as stuck-up as this girl is, she does something to me. She challenges me in ways I didn’t know I wanted to be challenged.
Aside from the fact she thinks she hates me, the odds are stacked high against us. Not only is Emma my sister’s BFF, but she’s looking for “prince charming”.
After my ex-fiancée ripped my heart out, I’m not the guy for happily ever after. These days, I’m the guy you call for a happy, no-strings long weekend.
If that wasn’t enough, Emma’s creep of an ex just moved to town. Now that she’s my employee, I'm playing with matches, but I need her under me in more ways than one.
Whatever is happening between us is about to ignite. Even if we both get burned, Emma’s a temptation I just can’t resist.
And while she won’t admit it, she wants me just as much as I want her.
Admit You Want Me is a full-length standalone enemies-to-lovers romance featuring a bold alpha hero who’s about to meet his match in a feisty, smart-mouthed heroine. HEA/No cheating.
