Excerpt -Alpha Me Not! –Adult:
She was alive.
If Joe hadn’t knocked on her door and bugged her into going out for dinner, she would’ve been in the cottage when it exploded.
She jerked to a sitting position. She could’ve died tonight. Kicked the bucket at the ripe old age of twenty-five.
Gone to her maker a freaking virgin. What the heck was she waiting for? What had she saved it for anyway? It wasn’t as if she hadn’t had the opportunity to make love.
But like the rest of her dumb-ass virgin friends, she’d wanted it to be with someone special. Wanted it to mean something.
But that was before. Before she’d heard good ole Ken Laroque boasting to the entire community college football team that he’d nail her on graduation night. They’d been dating for two months, and she had been hopelessly enthralled with Kenny, fancied herself in love, and believed he felt the same way about her.
Living in the small town of Chabegawn meant if you farted, everyone knew about the stinky air and discussed the intensity at length. So she’d bided her time, bearing the burden of her unwanted virginity until the day she’d left Chabegawn for good two weeks ago.
Susie tossed the covers and jumped off the bed. She paced a tight circle in front of the dresser.
No way would she die a virgin.
And it wasn’t as if she and Joe were going to be neighbors anymore. She glanced at the door. The dorm she’d stayed in was virtually empty, and the dorm master had told her that it would likely remain that way for the coming summer semester.
Joe had certainly indicated his interest in her.
And from the minute she’d set eyes on him—well, okay, from the second time she’d set eyes on him, he’d had her juices flowing.
She’d move out tomorrow, and they’d never have to see each other again.
Glancing down at the wifebeater she’d bought earlier, she debated changing. The skimpy tank showed enough skin to warrant a sexy label.
No way was she going to overanalyze the situation. Lifting her chin, she marched to the door, yanked it open, and glided down the hallway.
His bedroom was on the other side of the kitchen; he’d gestured to it earlier. Her throat went dry when she passed the gas range. Her stomach did this clench-and-jerk spasm a few feet before the dark recesses of a door.
She stumbled and jammed a hand to the wall. Was she really going to do it?
Damn right, she was. No way was she dying a virgin.
The door wasn’t shut all the way. Holding her breath, she teased it open and waited for a death-defying squeak or a click or some other deafening noise in the dead silence. Not a spark of light lessened the ominous blackness of the room.
Gawd, she smelled him. Musk, spice, and sex.
On tiptoe she made her way to the bed.
“Want that brandy after all?” He switched on a lamp.
Refusing to look anywhere but straight into his eyes, she leaned forward and set her palm to his bunched forearm. “No lights.”
