In the three years after a horrible crime claimed her family, Elise Halliwell has been alone, shut off from the world in a self-imposed emotional exile. She goes through the motions, finishes high school and moves across country to start college and begin the next step in her pre-destined life.

But her exile is dramatically cut short by the entrance of a dark haired, blue-eyed, smirking man who shakes her to the core, achieving what everyone else before him has failed to do, he makes her feel again.

As much as he wishes it were different, fate has not brought Braxton James into Elise’s life, or has it. Brax has to keep her safe from people in her life who have ulterior motives and may want to hurt her.

Elise has no idea the threat she faces, and Brax wants to make sure it stays that way. But as Brax struggles with getting close to her, he begins to live a lie. Unable to resist the pull that is Elise’s bright green eyes, infectious giggle, and loving heart, he finds it impossible to stay away, so the double life of being Elise’s boyfriend and keeping her safe begins.

Full of twists and turns, danger and revelations that no-one could predict, you won’t be the only one lost in distraction.

I stand and watch Elle, smiling when she starts fidgeting and tapping her toes against the bed. She’s concentrating on the book and looks so damn cute while she does it. I quietly walk up to her feet and run my hands up her legs slowly, but firmly. She jumps when I first touch her, but as I get higher up her calves, putting my weight on her as I ease up her body, I hear a soft groan come from her mouth and god dammit if that doesn’t change my original plan to only snuggle up to her.

“You’ll have to be quick, lover. My boyfriend will be home any minute,” she says seductively.

“I’m never quick when I’m with you darlin’,” I whisper roughly in her ear. 

I roll her over underneath me, making sure to touch and kiss every inch of skin I can reach on my way up to her mouth. When I reach up to her face, she turns and gives me a sly smile.

“Hi to you, too,” she says before brushing her lips against mine.

I groan as she deepens our kiss, teasing and taunting me with her tongue as we explore each other’s mouths. She’s completely unraveling me, she has turned me inside out and back around again. I can’t imagine how anyone could want to hurt her. 

I turn on my side so I can look right into those exquisite green eyes of hers.

“Would my lady like to accompany me to dinner?” I say in a fake English accent. She giggles in response, making it all worth it.

“Of course. It’s my turn to choose where, though,” she says, bouncing off the bed with a smirk before walking into the bathroom, locking the door behind her.

“Why’d you lock the door?” I ask.

“To keep you and your dirty mind out of here. We’ll never get to dinner if I let you come in here,” she says teasingly.

“I could easily break the door down and carry you back to the bed, caveman style,” I add with a growl.

“Damn,” I hear her curse behind the door. I can’t help but laugh. I always manage to switch the tables on her, every time.
