Just in case you haven’t picked up Husky & Hot yet, I wanted to make sure you knew how sweet Drew was. He’s heartbroken and getting over his ex, but he’s also simply perfect for Carrie. And he proves it over and over again!
Excerpt from Husky & Hot
“There you are,” his voice came from behind me. “I’ve been looking for you all week.”
I turned and gave him an annoyed and confused look. “You’re my boss. You know where I am 40 hours a week.”
“Whoa. What did I do?”
I shook my head. He didn’t need my jealousy creating problems. He was getting over his ex and that was good. I cared about him enough to want him to be happy, although being happy without me was a little annoying.
“Nothing. You did nothing. What did you need from me?”
“This isn’t nothing, Carrie. Talk to me. I thought we were more than boss and employee.”
“You don’t need to worry about my personal life. It’s fine. Why were you looking for me?”
“I, uh… I was wondering what you’re doing tonight?” He ran his hand through his hair and looked entirely too adorable. Drew was not the kind of man I’d ever think of as being adorable. Sexy. Hot. Badass. Yes. But adorable? Only at that moment.
“I don’t have any plans tonight. Did you need me to work late?”
“What?” he snapped. “No. I wanted to go out. On a date. With you.”
He chuckled. “I wanted you to go out with me. I was thinking of fixing you dinner at my place, if you’re interested. If not… don’t worry about it. I was just-“
“I do. I mean, yes. I thought you were… Never mind.”
“You thought what?”
“Don’t worry about it.”
“Carrie, what’s going on? I thought we were okay. Better than okay the other day. What’s changed?”
I took a deep breath for strength and dug deep. Telling him what I’d thought all week and what Xander said about him… oh, who cared.
“You acted like the other day was a one time thing. Then Xander told Mandy you’d gotten lucky but wouldn’t talk about it and everyone said that meant it was just a one time hook-up. When you spent the week acting like you’d gotten some I just figured you met someone.”
“Wait a minute,” he said, holding up his hand for me to stop. “Okay, first of all, I don’t know what I did to make you think the other day was a one time thing, but I’d hoped it wouldn’t be. As for Xander, well he’s a dick. I didn’t tell him anything because I didn’t want him to think differently of you for being with me. As for you… I haven’t been able to think about anything other than the way you screamed my name the other day. Sitting at that desk gives me a hard-on because I see you sprawled over it, open for me. I’ve basically been useless all week.”
