Luke and Heather shared a few weeks together. A few weeks that Heather thought were leading to more. A few weeks that scared Luke into running.
Now, months later, Heather is helping her best friend plan her wedding at none other than Luke’s pub. Neither want their past to interfere, but neither can deny they want the past to stay only in the past.
Excerpt from Drink For It
“I think we should sleep together again,” she said, still facing the brewery beyond the glass. She could hear the low rumble of the tanks and the heaters keeping them at the right temperature.
But the noise on the other side of the glass did not hide the hiss Luke made when he sucked in a breath.
Heather shrugged. “The sex was good. Damn good. We both still want each other. Working together is going to be impossible. Why not take the edge off and just agree to sex until the wedding?”
“Until the wedding?”
Heather grinned to herself. He didn’t say no.
She schooled her lips into an impassive expression and turned to him.
“Sure. The wedding will be a good time to put an end to things. We’ll have a few weeks together, but we’ll have a definitive ending. No hurt feelings. No misunderstandings. Just sex for a few weeks.”
“That’s it? Just sex. For a few weeks.”
Heather nodded as though it was a perfectly logical arrangement. Inside her heart pounded and her pulse raced as though her whole life depended on his answer. In a way it did. She hadn’t had an orgasm worth a damn since he left. She’d given it a try, but he did something to her. Something that changed her. Broke her. And she’d been horny and pissed off since.
She needed him.
It had nothing to do with wanting him. Luke wasn’t hers. He never would be. He’d made that very clear.
“No one else. Just us. At the wedding, you can pick up whatever woman you want. But before, I want it to be just us. When one of us wants a quick fuck, we go for it. No sleepovers. No bedrooms. No dates. Just sex.”
“Just sex,” he repeated again.
“The way you like it,” she goaded him.
His eyes darkened, but he didn’t argue.
“When do we start?”
