Allegra Maxwell is sick of the monotony of life. It's all work and no play, and right now she wants to play. She shows up at her company's yearly meeting with one goal in mind: have a one night stand with a stranger. What she doesn't count on is Devlin Pierce walking through the door.
When Allegra first met Devlin, she knew he would be nothing but trouble. After he proved her theory true last year, she made a vow to avoid him at all costs. He's the last person she wants to see, and he knows it. He refuses to leave her alone though. As much as she tries to fight it, the pull he has on her is undeniable. Her ability to resist him proves impossible when Devlin makes her an offer she can't refuse.
One night. That's all he asks. That's all she wants. Or is it?
Excerpt . . .
Something changes in his breathing suddenly and he has that look in his eyes.
He abruptly yanks me from the open floor and off to the side behind a booth, where nobody can see us. He hauls my body to his and I gasp. His palms rest on my backside as he buries his face in the crook of my neck, pressing tiny kisses there.
I let out a shuddering breath. “I thought you were just going to kiss me once.”
“All you have to do is tell me to stop and I'll stop,” he says against my skin. He's giving me an out, a chance to leave or tell him I don't want this. I should tell him to stop; I should walk away right now. But I can't; I'm powerless to his touch. I only really ever imagined how it would feel. I never knew how much I truly craved it. How much I crave him at this moment.
His hands move to my waist and travel up, sliding along the bottom of my ribcage and stopping just below my breasts. I should push his roaming hand away. It's a precursor and I'm just enabling him. I grip at his shirt near the waist, holding him close enough to feel his hard length press up against my stomach. A yearning sound comes out of my mouth before I can prevent it. He lets out a harsh breath, and starts to nip at my ears, tugging them lightly between his teeth. Moving up, he presses a kiss to my temple, then my forehead, his hand cupping my face.
“Allegra,” he says softly against my cheek. My breath catches as my mind wraps around the fact that he's closing in on my lips to steal a kiss. Is it stealing a kiss when you want it? No. But...it's all too much. I'm lusting for Devlin of all people. It's a precarious road I'm heading down, the same one I stepped onto last year when I first fell for him. I want to surrender to him—surrender my body to him—and yet, I'm holding back.
