There was so much I never saw coming.
Opening for Tragic, one of the most famous bands in the world, catapulted me from mediocre anonymity into the limelight.
The leap from struggling musician to successful rock star happened quickly.
After my album topped the charts, I was headlining my own tour, performing for thousands of fans, and loving every moment.
Just as suddenly as my career began, it slammed to a halt, stopped by a word uttered worldwide.
With my tour postponed, it looked like my year wasn’t going to be a promising one, until I ended up quarantined with Geneva Rowe. Sexy, funny, and a frustrating mystery, Geneva made the days fly by.
“Sometimes the universe intervenes.”
I couldn’t remember where I heard those words, but they stuck with me. Not until this year, did I believe they could be true.
Now if only it could help me convince this stubborn woman we could have more than a temporary isolation fling.
I need to know we’re on the same page. “Patrick, what do you want from me?”
“Want from you?” He stares down at me, his fingers trailing across my inner thigh.
“I’m not looking for a relationship or anything serious, but I’m open to a temporary fling situation while we’re staying here. If that’s what you want.”
His eyes darken as he looms over me and the shift in his expression warns I’m not dealing with the kind, polite man I’ve come to know. What lust ignites in him is deep, primal and unrestrained.
God, the way his voice drops close to a growl as he responds is enough to weaken anyone. “I want to fuck you in every way possible, in every position imaginable. I want to make you come in ways you never fathomed in every available bit of space in this house, then move outside where the world can hear you scream my name until you’re hoarse. That’s what I want, Geneva.”
My words are drowned out by the thump of my heart in my ears. “I can live with that.”
