I had never done anything like this before. Ever. My life wasn’t set up for me to do something this taboo. This risky. This… sexy. This… reckless.
As a preacher’s daughter there were just some things in this world I was not allowed or expected to do – meeting a total and complete stranger for sex was probably on the top of the list.
This wasn’t planned. Okay, well maybe it was. Let me start from the beginning.
I ain’t no fool. I know sex could never lead to love. I’ve never believed in love at first sight. So what was this that I was feeling for Akela?
Akela. Even her name speaks to what she is. What she was. Alone. She didn’t know that I knew that that was what her name meant. We really didn’t know too much about each other. Just the basics.
All I know is when I laid eyes on her I wanted her. And when I was inside of her I needed her. I never wanted to let her go. But she made it clear last night before we went to sleep that this was going to be a onetime thing.
She wanted to forget she ever knew him. He wanted to be as close to her as her skin, yet as distant as enemies.
After their night together, they are forced to be together for two months because of her accident and his career.
Could a one-night stand turn into something more?
