Bad in Boots Book 4
Sabrina Gentry isn’t one to take life lightly. The last thing she would ever do is cut loose, but when her boyfriend breaks up with her, claiming she’s too controlling, she decides to throw out everything she thought she knew about relationships. While on vacation visiting her friend Elise in Texas, she’s gives herself one main rule: The first man who trips your trigger, go for it! No questions, no reservations.The last thing she expected was for the one guy who tripped her trigger to make a pass at her thinking she was someone else. With her new rule in mind, Sabrina sets out to convince Josh Kelly she’s the woman he wants.
Josh Kelly couldn’t believe how much more attracted he was to his married neighbor Elise when he saw her perfectly shaped jean-clad rear from behind. When he discovers the woman he whispered a suggestive comment to wasn’t Elise, but her best friend Sabrina, he’s determined to get to know the woman who could make him lose all common sense.
When a near fatal accident brings Josh and Sabrina together, neither can deny the fierce attraction between them. But the path to love is never a smooth one, and as Sabrina and Josh uncover layers about each other that could tear their passionate relationship apart, danger still lurks, waiting to strike.
Note: Josh’s Justice was originally published as the novella titled Heart’s Afire in the Hearts are Wild anthology. Josh’s Justice has been extensively revised and expanded to novel length.
WARNING: This book contains adult language and very steamy love scenes.
Excerpt from JOSH’S JUSTICE
“Maybe you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.” His eyes darkened, churning with unfathomable intensity. “Don’t worry, Sabrina. I won’t let anyone harm you.”
She tilted her head and for a brief second enjoyed the feeling of being watched over. “Why can’t I remember what happened during that pocket of time, yet I clearly remember what you said to me in the stall the day before when you thought I was Elise. I guess the fire doused your plans to meet with her.” When she realized how that must’ve sounded, she quickly added, “About the horse, I mean.” Well, crap! Why does it bother me so much that he cares about Elise? I just met the man for Pete’s sake!
His eyes held hers for a long second, then he nodded. “I’ve heard being hit on the head can sometimes cause partial memory loss.”
“Er, sorry. I didn’t mean to imply…about Elise. It’s just that—”
“I’ve obviously been on your mind?” he suggested, a cocky half-smile tugging at his lips.
“No, that’s not what I meant—”
“I was the first thing you brought up.”
Embarrassed heat rushed her cheeks. “No, seeing you brought it back. I mean—”
“About Elise…once upon a time, maybe.” A serious look settled on his face as he clasped her hand and sat next to her. “But yesterday was the first time I’ve ever been attracted to Elise’s backside.” He paused and ran the pad of his thumb along the inside of her palm, his intimate touch stealing the air from her lungs despite the dull pounding in her head. “If you had any idea what I thought about doing with you the rest of the day after I laid eyes on you, you wouldn’t be questioning what woman I want to get to know on a personal level, ‘cause I sure as hell don’t.”
