Lizzy has terrible luck with men.
It’s not that she doesn’t attract good guys, she does. It’s that she settles for “decent” ones.
Tired of making the wrong choices when it comes to men, Lizzy trusts her best friend, Tara, to take her away for the weekend. Lizzy knows that if she wants an all-consuming love, she’s going to have to take a bigger risk to attract a different type of man.
But this road trip will yield dangerous results. Her panic button will be pushed, and before the first night is over, she will be Falling for His Badass.
That smile. That wink. I stare blatantly at the profile of this wall of a man named, B.A. He is a fine specimen of manliness. Although he is huge and definitely intimidating, my first reaction was wrong. His eyes aren’t mean, they are just super serious. They bore into your soul asking if you have secrets. I bite my straw and take a sip of my free drink. I wonder what his secrets are.
He laughs easily, enjoying the show. His eyes crinkle, and there’s a cute dimple in his cheek. Every time he flexes his arm to lift his beer to those sculpted lips, his muscles pop out. His Adam’s apple slides up and down as he swallows. I’ve never dated a man who had muscles this big, or had a pronounced Adam’s apple like his. I smirk at that unusual thought and take another sip. I wonder what it would be like to have an alpha male make mad, passionate love to you. It would be sensory overload! I suck hard on my straw, draining my drink. The sound of sucking air gets his attention, and he glances back at me.
Totally tipsy, I swing my leg over to cross my legs as I set the empty glass on the table. His eyes drop to the movement and linger looking at my hemline. Knowing I’m bare down there, his intense gaze makes me both nervous and excited, and the booze makes me daring. What would a man like him do if I was his girl and I teased him right now by spreading my legs invitingly? Would he ignore the temptation because we’re in public, or would he discretely slide his hand between my legs, then insert his finger to test how wet I am? I bet he would check my status. My leg starts to pump up and down with that thought, satisfying the tickle that is growing down there.
He looks up to my face and catches the fantasy playing on it. The look on his face shifts in a fraction of a second from a man enjoying a comedy at a dinner show to a man who would totally fuck my brains out given the opportunity. My breath hitches in my throat and my heart stops beating. This man is nothing like the “decent” men I’m used to dating. He pushes my panic button in a way I’ve never felt before. My whole body is tingling. The look on his face is barely concealed hunger and I bite my lip to keep from coming unglued.
Fucking hell! Woman! Don’t tease my ass so blatantly. I could fuck that look into tomorrow. Out of the corner of my eye, I see the waiter with our food. Thankful for the distraction, I lean back in my seat to gain control of myself as I stare at Lizzy. Lucky for you, babe, our food is here, because I’m hungry and ready to eat. Her eyes stare back intimated.
EVERYONE HAS SECRETS!

I’m from LA … Lower Alabama. The Deep South. I married my high school sweetheart and have been married to him longer than I have lived without him.
