Series: Not Like the Movies #1
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Not be one. Madison Winters has life in the bag. Gorgeous fiancé? Check. Promotion to become editor of the country’s hottest fashion magazine? Check. Limited edition pair of Manolo Blahniks? Checkity-check. Catching her fiancé with his pants down isn’t something she expects. In the space of twenty-four hours, Madison loses it all—not even her shoes will be saved.
Swapping sass + bide for sweatpants and Dior for the downward dog is going to be hell. The last thing Madison’s broken heart needs is a run-in with America’s newest playboy. Can she ever recover from this? Tate Masters has it all—Hollywood’s latest golden boy has washboard abs, a killer smile, and a leading role in the next A-list movie.
Until a secret from his past is splashed all over the headlines, and that ‘good boy’ image fast-tracks to the gutter.
Now the media hunt is on, and they’re baying for Tate’s blood. One night of wild behaviour sees him wake up next to a gorgeous Aussie brunette—and she’s everything Tate’s afraid of.
Keeping secrets has never been this hard.
Heat flares in my body. I lean in close to her, so close I can smell the sweet perfume from her neck. So close I can see the rise and fall of her ample chest. And even though I know I shouldn’t, even though I know I’ve been warned to stay off women, I want her.
Clearing my throat, I use my most seductive voice. The one that used to open legs for me everywhere I went, when teamed with my best smile. “I’d like to get you on your back.”
Her throat bobs as she swallows.
I’ve got her right where I want her. She’s falling for me. It’s been so long since I had—
A shock of liquid smacks me. Ice tumbles from my head to the floor. “What the actual f@#k?”
The woman shrugs and places her now empty glass on the bar top. “Looked like you could use some cooling off.”
I wipe the liquid from my eyes and lick my lips. Gin and tonic. Typical chick drink.
I should be mad. I should be fuming.
But I’m turned on. No one argues with me like that. No one pushes the limits, aside from Janie, and she’s family.This woman could be my undoing.
