Did you miss this weeks teaser? Here it is again in it's entirety!
The set up: Damian wakes to an empty bed and hears Bethany on
the phone...remember he's an interrogation specialist. He can read
people's body language/cues in their voice etc. Uh oh.
“. . . I’m working,” Bethany's voice either lowered or she walked away farther, because the rest of what she said was a mumble.
started toward the door. Sleeping with her had definitely heightened
what he felt for Bethany, or maybe his feelings of entitlement, because
the unease he’d felt yesterday when he’d heard her tone down her
relationship with him was a slow-boiling annoyance now. Had she really
just told someone she was working instead of admitting where and with
whom she was?
“. . . not now I can’t, but tonight for sure.”
of standing there eavesdropping as he was tempted to, Damian decided to
walk out into the front room, where her voice seemed to be coming from.
As soon as he opened the door, he was surprised to see she wasn’t even
inside. She’d stepped out onto the patio.
though Bethany smiled as soon as she saw him, Damian hadn’t missed how
her head had jerked in his direction when he opened the door. He managed
to smile back, but just barely, as he walked toward her. As much as he
had every intention of not jumping to conclusions and giving her the
benefit of the doubt, it was already pissing him off that she turned
away and lowered her voice.
the patio door, and she turned, lifting her hand for him to give her a
second, then turned her back on him again. “I gotta go now, okay. Yes,
He’d give her a second or
longer if she needed it, but he wasn’t leaving, if that’s what she
thought. Wrapping his arms around her waist from behind, he noticed how
As much as that, too,
made him wonder what the hell her sister was asking about now that she
couldn’t talk about until tonight, he still tried to shake the unease
and leaned in to kiss her neck. This time he was asking her straight out
the second she was off the phone. No more dicking around. This close,
he heard the other person on the phone, and it wasn’t her sister. It was
“Okay, tonight then. I’m really looking forward to it, Bethany.”
Damian yanked his head back.
“I am, too. Bye.” She turned to him as soon as she was off the phone.
“Who was that?”
was another first for Damian. He’d never felt anything like what he was
feeling at that moment, as he stared at her, his heart pounding as it
always did when he was around her, but for an altogether different
reason now. It had actually been a chore to refrain from cussing and
asking her who the fuck was that on the phone. “That was Simon,” she
said, as if it were nothing. That only spiked the annoyance that had
already boiled over and was reaching a new height. He wouldn’t even
attempt to hide what he was feeling now.
“What’s he looking forward to tonight?”
“Seeing me.” She said it so calmly, it gave him hope this was a complete misunderstanding.
he fisted his hands tightly, trying to remain as calm as she was.
“Seeing you?” He lifted both brows, unable to hide the anger now.
“You’re gonna see him tonight?”
She nodded, touching his face softly. “What’s wrong with you?”
her touch did calm him a little, it wasn’t nearly enough. “What do you
mean what’s wrong with me? You’re gonna go see this guy tonight, and
he’s looking forward to it? And so are you?” Then it hit him. “You told
him you were working. Why?”
her brows together to think about it, she tilted her head. Damian took a
few steps back—away from her. As cute as he normally thought it when
she did that, right now he was too damn pissed to appreciate it.
She cleared her throat. “He asked why I said it’d be better if we
talked tonight instead of now, and I told him I was working tonight.”
“You’re lying,” he snapped.
Never had he been so sure about anything in his life. Every word she’d just said to him had been insincere.
