Maryse’s Book Blog: Book Bash excitement has made my brain a bit mushy. 😉 LOL! Okay lemme get on that right now!!!
So here it is. More DEX for you (and me!). This one was funny, but it really made my heart melt at one point. Dex is perfect.
It was around 11PM when I pulled the Highlander into the underground garage and parked it in my space. I switched off the engine and twisted in my seat to face her. Her eyes twinkled in the dim light and I couldn’t read her expression.
“So,” I said, trying to ignore the awkwardness that seemed to be building up in the car by the second.
She gave me a small smile and placed her hands in her lap. “So.”
Oh Jesus. Why did it feel like I was back in high school, trying to score with Cindy Brown in my beat-up Civic? Granted I ended up getting a wicked handjob but the moments leading up to it were like pulling teeth. And I wasn’t even trying to get a handjob here, I’d just forgotten how to talk to Perry.
I bit the bullet. “Are you happy to be home?”
She nodded. “F#ck yeah.”
I held myself in check. I lowered my voice and leaned in closer. “Do you consider this to be your home now?”
My eyes searched hers, my brain concentrating, trying to hear anything, see anything, to get the truth from her.
“Seattle?” she asked cautiously. She looked down at her hands and tilted her head. “Yeah. I think I do.”
I should have accepted that. That should have been good enough. But it wasn’t good enough.
“I mean with me. Am I your home?”
She rubbed her lips together as the pressure in the car increased. The waiting, the tension, was unbearable. On the plus side, I didn’t have an erection anymore.
