This week's tease comes from Cole's story in Longing for Her, Risso Family #2.If you'd like to join in the fun next week, head over HERE to sign up!
Intuitive to the point I believed in a sixth sense, our mother always knew when one of her kids struggled or suffered. I’d caught Lia glancing between me and Gwen a couple of times too, as the minutes dragged by.
“We need to talk.”
The things I could do to you in two minutes…
I squeezed my arms tight to keep from grabbing and hauling her against me.
Her brow rose. “Well?”
She huffed a breath. “Look, Cole, I understand about your father, your being the next patriarch of the family, and needing to do right by your name. I do.”
“But nothing. I have no father. A mother who loves toking up every night.”
She held up a hand. “I’ll never be dignified enough in your father’s eyes. I’ve always known it—and I never should have thrown myself at you.”
Swallowing, I let my arms drop to my sides. “It was the best night of my life.”
Her jaw snapped shut.
I reached out to trace a finger down her soft cheek. “You’re all I think about, Gwen. All I dream about.”
“You’re the only one I want.”
Tears filled her eyes, but she straightened, chin lifting. “Yeah, well I had you once and that was enough for me. Get out of my way.”
