Release Date: June 22nd
He should have left and never looked back when he’d decided to finally do the right thing and push Marty out of his life, but instead he stuck around to torture himself by staying close to the one woman that he could never allow himself to have. She deserved better than him, better than the tortured existence that he led and better than the horrifying future that waited for him.
She forced herself to calm down and focus on buying an apple fritter and a hot chocolate. That would make her morning better. She just needed her apple fritter and cocoa and everything would be okay. A few minutes later she was waiting for a rather chatty woman to grab her coffee and get the hell out of her way. There was only one fritter left and it was hers!
Just as she was opening her mouth to ask the woman in front of her to move aside so that she could place her order, a large man wearing a dark suit stepped in front of her.
What the hell?
“Hey, there’s a line, buddy!” she snapped, not even caring enough to be polite about it. She needed her delicious fritter or she was pretty sure that she would kill someone.
“Don’t get your panties in a twist, sweetheart,” a familiar voice said. It didn’t take her long to figure out who the bastard that had cut in front of her was.
“Tristan Black,” she bit out through clenched teeth, “move your ass!”
He looked over his shoulder and snorted, but didn’t say anything else as he returned his attention back to the cashier.
“I’ll take a hot chocolate and a coffee roll-“
“It’s our last one, Detective. I know that you usually get two,” the woman said in a flirty tone that had Marty’s teeth grinding together.
“Okay, then I’ll also take the last apple fritter, Jen,” Tristan said, earning a gasp from Marty.
“Don’t. You. Dare,” Marty bit out.
Tristan turned around and crossed his arms over his chest while he leaned back against the counter. “I’m sorry, did you want that?” he asked with mock innocence.
She narrowed her eyes on him. The bastard knew that anything with apples was her weakness.
“Yes,” she practically hissed.
He nodded, looking thoughtful before he leaned in to whisper in her ear. “Too. Bad.” He pressed a kiss to her cheek before pulling away, leaving her shocked and ready to kick his ass.
