Drew and Lily sitting in a tree (or a church garden)
K-I-S-S-I-N-G (and then some)
First comes sex
Then comes marriage
Then, well, we’re just not sure what comes next.
Lily Kramer accepted Drew Hamilton’s marriage proposal but
it wasn’t a traditional proposal. He wants her to marry him so his mother, who
has dementia, will know that he got married. Lily, an over-thirty wedding
planner, doesn’t see any other offers of marriage in her future so she accepts.
Now she has to plan a wedding that looks and feels like a real wedding, but
isn’t. Drew doesn’t want a relationship,
but he wants it to look like he and Lily are married, including living
together, so that everyone believes.
Will they be able to pull it off? Will Drew’s mother succumb
to the dementia before the wedding? Will Lily be able to shield her heart and
still have the wedding of her dreams?
**This is the follow up novel to With This Ring.**
When I reach my
room, I stop short at one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.
Lily is curled
up on my bed, her hair splayed out on the pillow, and she’s sleeping. She looks
so peaceful and content; my dick twitches at the thought of burying myself
inside her. My heart rate speeds up and I realize I really like this view. I
want to have it view every day. Fuck.
There go my plans to keep things simple. I’m falling in love with Lily. I
didn’t see that coming, but I kind of like the idea. As I change my clothes, I
wonder how this woman got under my skin so quickly.
I know I should
let her sleep, but I have to touch her to figure out if what I’m feeling is
real, if I want to put my heart on the line again and risk it being crushed. I
climb carefully on the bed and she rolls toward me, but doesn’t open her eyes.
I brush a few strands of hair away from her face and she smiles. That smile
pushes me over the edge. I know I want this woman in my life, and I’m going to
do what I can to keep her. It’s a foreign feeling, one I’ve fought for years,
but it feels right. I pull her into my arms. She makes a small moaning sound
and curls into me. She’s soft where I’m hard and we fit together like we were
made for each other. I relax and get lost in the rhythm of her breathing. Soon,
I’m dozing, too.
