In the emotional and dramatic sequel to Tryst, Skyler and Blake’s relationship is finally out in the open. But as new challenges open up old wounds, their love is put to the ultimate test…
Blake is desperate to be the kind of man that Skyler deserves, but with his latest film putting him on the verge of superstardom, being there for her is growing harder and harder. As his filming schedule takes him on the road and away from the woman he loves, he discovers that being in a public, committed relationship is no easy task—especially from two thousand miles away.
Skyler wants Blake to pursue his dreams, but his constant absence weighs on her more than she admits. Even as she throws herself into new distractions, she finds herself facing uncertainties and jealousies that could tear apart everything they’ve built. And when disaster strikes while Blake is away, she’ll have to decide if their passion is worth the pain…
I blink furiously, finally lifting my head up to lay my eyes on the one thing I never want to risk losing because of my stupid need for self-affirmation.
Her eyes are wide, tense, expectant . . . and scared. I can’t take it anymore. She’s here. “Blake, I—” I drop the magazine, take a giant step forward, grabbing her face, and crash my lips to hers. It’s amazing how the tenseness in my chest instantly releases, like an elixir to my existence. I could live forever, powered by her lips alone. You don’t give something like that up.
She keeps trying to talk, but I won’t stop kissing her. Her lips are soft, making me think she’s been crying, and I hate it. I kiss her harder, forcing her lips open, tasting her, needing to know she’s really here.
She stops fighting me. Her mouth keeps up with the fervor of mine as her arms wrap around my neck, holding me close. The quiet moan that escapes her short-circuits all the synapses in my brain.
I pull away, but only to breathe.
In this sensational New Adult debut by Alex Rosa, boyfriends are too much trouble. So what’s the harm in a little fun?
With an abusive relationship behind her, Skyler moves out of her Orange County apartment, changes her phone number, cuts ties with her friends, and moves in with her brother Josh, a talent agent with a spare room in his incredible house in Hollywood.
Josh is happy to take Skyler under his wing, but he has one rule: she can’t sleep with his roommate, Blake. That’s fine by Skyler. She doesn’t want a man in her life right now—and certainly not cocky Blake who’s with a different girl every night. But his all-American boy charm and his ripped model physique are difficult to refuse. Josh will never know if no one ever tells him. And a little secret now and then never hurt anyone…
