Excerpt

I watched as Wilson licked his lips. What the hell am I doing? I couldn’t let him kiss me. Then he’d realize that I’ve never been kissed before, and that would be infinitely more humiliating than him not kissing me. I really needed to work on keeping my mouth shut.

“You mean like kissing you?” He asked.

I nodded.

“Can I tell you a secret?” I nodded again, as I watched his baby blues flicker in the firelight. “I’ve thought about kissing you for three years. But,” he said as he walked me backward away from the light of the fire. We didn’t stop moving until my back hit a tree. “Unfortunately, you have two very over protective guys in your life that wouldn’t let me get near you.”

“What?” I didn’t know what to say. Honestly, I wasn’t really even listening to him. I was too busy watching his lips move and imagining them pressed against mine.

“But, I will tell you another secret,” Wilson said as he bent closer to me and brushed his lips against my ear. “I don’t care what they say, I’m going to kiss you.”

My heart beat into my throat. I was about to get my first kiss, and my first kiss was going to be from Wilson Butler, the country boy with all the money in the world. I tried to slow my breathing so I wouldn’t drown him in my beer breath.

“Don’t you think you should ask the lady if you can attempt such a bold feat?” I asked.

With his lips still pressed against my ear, he breathed my name. It was soft and sweet, and it made me melt against the tree.

Breathlessly, I opened my mouth to answer, and when I did, he captured my lips. He cupped the back of my head and nibbled my lower lip. He flicked his tongue against my lips as his arms wound around my body. I suddenly found that it wasn’t that hard to let go of all my unease. I wound a hand into the hair touching the back of his neck and pulled him closer.

Wilson made a small hum of approval as my mouth moved against his in a kiss so slow and thorough my body loosened and melted against him. When he stepped back away from me, I suddenly felt shy and I could feel my face heating again.

“You’re beautiful when you blush,” Wilson said as his hand fell from my hip to my hand. He pulled me back toward the fire, our fingers interlaced. As I stumbled after him, it was like I forgot how to walk.

When we got back to where we had been standing, he lifted my hand to his lips and gently kissed my knuckles. “I’m just going to get another beer.” I nodded dumbly and watched as he walked off.

Holy shit. I really just had my first kiss. Finally. I wanted to jump for joy and clap my hands, but instead I kept my feet firmly rooted in the dirt.

“Red, where the hell have you been?” Gavin asked as he stepped up beside me. “I’ve been looking all over for you.”

“I’ve been right here.” I stood up straighter. His eyes were still boring into me when Wilson returned.

“My lady,” he said gallantly as he handed me a fresh beer. I eyed him and grinned. I swallowed the last of my can and rose the one he brought me to my lips. “Why, thank you, sir.”

My eyes flicked over to Gavin. He was watching us with a look of astonishment. Wilson never even glanced at him, and I guessed that’s what was making Gavin’s teeth clench. I was enjoying the attention and I beamed under Wilson’s gaze.

“So, when would you like me to help you work on your swing?”

“She doesn’t need any help on her swing,” Gavin ground out between clenched teeth. Wilson looked over at him as if noticing him for the first time.

“Oh, hey Gavin.”

Gavin grunted.

“Let me know, I’m pretty open.” I said instead. Wilson smiled and bowed.

“Red, if anyone is going to work on your swing, it will be me. Or Bren.” Gavin swung a heavy arm around my shoulder and pulled me closer to him. I was annoyed but went with it.

“I’ve got a full ride to State. Don’t you think she should learn from someone that’s going somewhere?”

I felt Gavin stiffen against me. I looked down at the hand hanging off my shoulder. He wasn’t clenching it, but it held a tight fury, like he was trying very hard not to move it.

This was bad. Very bad. I had to get him away from Wilson and find out why he was so upset. But first, I had to get him away from Wilson. If Gavin snapped and hit Wilson, there’s no telling what kind of trouble he would be in.

“Red!” It was Tommy again. I turned around to see him quickly approaching me and he looked worried.

“What’s wrong?” I asked. I hadn’t seen Brenden in awhile and I was hoping that he wasn’t coming to tell me that my brother had done something stupid.

“Come here,” he said motioning me closer as he continued to close the distance between us. “I need you to settle something for me.”

“In a minute,” I said as I turned back to Wilson and Gavin. Their eyes were locked on each other, and neither of them moved, but it felt like they were having some secret conversation in a language I didn’t know how to speak.

Tommy stepped up beside me and grabbed my hand. I resisted at first, wanting to make sure that it didn’t come to blows between these two. Gavin’s arm fell from my shoulders as Tommy began to lead me away.

“What the f*ck, Tommy?”

He didn’t stop walking until I was far enough away that I couldn’t hear anything that Wilson and Gavin had to say to each other. I looked back. Gavin looked tense, and Wilson looked pleased.

“There’s no need to get in between those two.”

“What does that mean?”

“It means,” he sighed and ran a hand through his hair. “It means that Gavin and Wilson don’t really like each other. I would say that they hate each other. So just, try and stay away from Wilson, okay?”

“That’s not an answer.”

Tommy shrugged and moved away from me. I was about to shout after him when I felt a shove from behind. I spun in the dirt and smacked into Gavin.

“Move it.” He grunted as he pushed me deeper into the woods.

“Doesn’t anyone have manners? Ask me nicely,” I grumbled. I walked until I couldn’t feel the pressure of his hand forcing me deeper into the woods. “If I get eaten by a bear all the way out here, it will be your fault.”

“Why were you talking to Wilson?”

“Really? That’s how you want to start? Maybe you should start with, ‘hey Red, how are you? Are you having a nice time?’”

“Don’t push me, Red.” I shoved him in the chest. “Why were you talking to him?”

“Because I can talk to whoever the hell I want to talk to.”

“Well, you can’t talk to him.”

“Why not?”

“He’s a fucking scumbag.”

“Seemed perfectly normal to me. Polite even. He may even be the only person that hasn’t shoved me somewhere tonight.”

“He’s not normal, okay? He’s manipulative and he’s an asshole. Do not talk to him.”

“Let’s get one thing straight here. You don’t get to boss me around and tell me who I can or can’t talk to. I don’t belong to you. I can take care of myself.” I shoved my finger in his chest, jabbing at the hard planes of muscle over his ribs.

“You just can’t, okay?”

“No, not okay.”

“I said no, damn it.”

“Well, I don’t give a damn what you say. Besides, he likes me. We even kissed.” I raised my chin a notch, happy to see my words had shut him up.

His eyes widened. “What?” He roared at me. “He can’t be your first kiss.”

“Well, technically, he wasn’t but I’m not splitting hairs.” Gavin was my first kiss, but we were just kids.

Gavin grabbed my arm.

“Let go of me, crazy.”

“What do you mean you kissed?”

“What do you think I mean?” Was he for real? What kind of question is that, and what the hell did he expect me to say?

“Why would you let him kiss you?”

“Because I want to be kissed, you moron. I am still a girl, you know. Despite the fact that I associate with brutes does not negate the fact that I have a vagina. I am a girl and girls liked to be kissed!” Gavin took another step closer, and I stood completely still as he cupped either side of my face with cold hands. “What are you doing?”

“Giving you what you wanted. Isn’t this what you want, Red? To be kissed?”

His voice was low and smooth. Wait, is Gavin really going to kiss me? I felt my body shiver and I wasn’t sure if it was from anticipation or the breeze that was rustling the leaves.

“Are you cold?” he asked, his hands still gently cradling my face.

I nodded.

Slowly, as if still deciding if he was going to kiss me, he stepped closer. The heat from his body sent shivers down my spine, instantly warming me. I licked my lips as I waited for his lips to descend upon mine. It seemed like forever until the silky texture of his lips met mine, our lips just touching lightly at first. As he increased the pressure, I began to feel my knees weaken.

Gavin snaked a hand around my back and pulled me closer to his body. I felt his warmth envelope me as his lips continued to attack me in a way I never knew possible. I gasped at the feeling of him being so close to me, and he took the opportunity to explore my mouth with his tongue. With increasing fervor, he began to deepen the kiss, and I was afraid I would explode from the butterflies wreaking havoc in my belly.

Gavin backed me into a tree and pressed his body into mine. I wasn’t sure what was happening, but I knew I didn’t want it to stop. I’d never been kissed like this before, and I wasn’t even sure it was possible. I looped both arms around his neck as I tried to pull him closer to me, and he did the same as he slid one hand into my hair and the other on the side of my face as he continued controlling the kiss.

I could feel something pressing into my belly as he continued to push himself harder into me. I moaned into his mouth. As if scalded, he pushed back away from me, leaving me leaning up against the tree for support; I still didn’t think my legs would be able to support me.

He stumbled backward a few paces looking at me like he couldn’t comprehend what just happened. Gavin shook his head, as he looked at me wide-eyed.

“Stay away from Wilson,” he said before he turned and marched back toward the fire.

It took me a minute to remember how to use my legs. I ran a hand through my hair as I started to walk back to the fire. I tried not to let the tears that were threatening to spill from my eyes fall. I was hurt and confused, and more than a little turned on by Gavin’s lips.

So, he was mad at Wilson for kissing me, and then he went and did the same thing. He didn’t want me to talk to Wilson, but he wouldn’t tell me why. And he kissed me. That’s not something I can just gloss over. My best friend kissed me. He f*cking kissed me. Gavin pressed his lips to mine in the most intimate best friend handshake ever.

When I found him, I was going to throttle him. I would punch him right in the stomach and then tell him to do it again. I licked my lips, trying to taste him on my tongue again.

I burst into the clearing looking around for Gavin, but I couldn’t find him. I asked around, and I even asked Bren where he was, but no one had seen him. He just disappeared.

Book Review

I want you to read this book, full of hot and steamy in one breath then soft and romantic in the next and tell me which part of Hitched brought me to wiping my tears when I read it.

Hitched and the premise of “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…” is one that will capture your attention from the very first words and make it hard to put down until the very end. Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you believe there is one true soul mate for each person on this earth?  As a woman, and the reader of possibly a few too many romance novels, I believe in both. And reading Hitched makes me believe it that much more.

It amazes me every time I pick up a book written by this husband and wife team that it is better than the last one I read. Kimberly and Dmytry must live a fairy-tale life, along with their three darling daughters, to be able to reach down and find the words to heat up the pages with each and every book they write.

I hope you’ll take the time to buy this incredible novel and read yourself to sleep tonight with visions of love forever more dancing through your head. I give Hitched by Karpov and Kinrade five, steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

About the Book

Mira Frasier has worked hard to pull herself out of the darkness of her Tahoe reservation childhood, but rough beginnings shape a person in all the wrong ways. Mira gets mixed up with shady people while trying to bail out her destitute mother—and now Mira’s life is in danger.

Tyler Morgan grew up a star athlete and scholar, but a tragedy he hasn’t dealt with has him regrouping in his home town of South Lake Tahoe. The last person he expects to see is Mira, the girl he lost his virginity to in high school, and the only woman who ever took a piece of his heart. He’d rather live in a tent than do what his sister asks and stay with Mira while they figure out how to keep her safe from the men who attacked her.

To ensure Mira remains in his past where she belongs, Tyler agrees to look out for her temporarily until she’s safe enough to move out on her own. And if he has to push that process along by snooping around and figuring out what she’s hiding, he’ll do that too. Only, Mira is still beautiful, and she’s feisty as hell, and she has all his attention—just like she did six years before.

Mira is driving Tyler crazy, the tension between them off the charts while they’re trapped under the same roof. Something is going to crack. Will it be Mira’s last hold on a haunted life, or Tyler’s self-control around the one girl he’s never been able to get over?

Excerpt

This was it. There was no turning back. Once we do this, everything changes … but it feels so right with him. How did I go so long without this? I’ve never experienced anything like it before. Maybe I’ve never really been in love. Oh my God, am I now? Is it even possible?

Jessica fumbled with his belt buckle for what seemed like hours. It was dark and she couldn’t see well. Argh, why do they have to be button fly? She cringed and bit her lip. Pain shot through her finger as a corner of her nail tore off. Dammit! I’m really trying hard to be seductive here! Why am I so spastic? He’s going to think I’m a complete amateur! Squeezing her injured finger, she freed the last button without incident. Finally! She slid off his pants then reached into his boxer briefs, eager to find out what was waiting for her. A gasp escaped her lips before she could stop it. Irish curse? Um, that would be a big, fat swollen no. She wrapped her fingers around him, her pulse racing with delight. Oh. My. God.


“What’s wrong?” He looked down at her.

She grinned. “Absolutely nothing. Now kiss me.”

Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball’s biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette’s impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.

Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad.
