Toeing the Line Teaser Part 4
A flush spread over Riley’s cheeks, but she didn’t pull away. “I wasn’t talking about me, and I call bullshit.”
“Oh?” They’d had the argument before. Normally one of them backed down, but Zane’s rushing blood didn’t want to let him drop things this time.
She tucked her hair behind her ear, her thumb still stroking the inside of his thigh. “Every guy I’ve ever met who insists he likes giving oral better than receiving only says that because he’s never gotten a good blow job. One good, skilled set of lips gets him off, and even though he may still sing the same tune, he’s never quite as eager to give as receive.”
Jeez, what he’d give for a chance to prove her wrong. Or, hell, prove her right. Time to push the issue. “Tell me it’s not the same for you. Maybe you’ve just never had a guy who knew what he was doing…” He trailed off, half-expecting her to blow a fuse at the suggestion. When her brows rose instead, he kept talking. “Besides, I never blame the girl. It’s just harder to get me off orally.”
She let out an abbreviated laugh. “Bullshit. Again. I could so prove you wrong.”
Every inch of him pulsed in response. “Too bad we’re not in a position to do that.”
Her lips twisted as she thought, and her gaze raked over him. “You look like you’re in the perfect position to me. You never gave me your answer the other day.”
She still remembered. He didn’t know if he was relieved or not. “About?”
Her smile didn’t fade. “You know what about. Call it friends with benefits if you want.”
It didn’t matter to him what they called it as long as they kept the rules in mind. “It’s completely separate from our friendship.”
“Of course.” She caught her bottom lip between her teeth. “As long as we’re both okay with it, and there’s no assumption that it will or won’t happen again. This is now, and every other moment is its own thing?”
Yes, goddammit, yes. He forced his tone to remain even. “Exactly.”
Coming August 2013
Zane’s time as Air Force intelligence has taught him a thing or two about keeping secrets. But when his best friend, Riley, finds out what kind of secrets he’s kept from her, their “Friends With Benefits” relationship won’t be what threatens their growing feelings for each other.
Riley tends to fall hard and fast for the guys she dates, and it never ends with the wedding bells she expects. Tired of the heartbreak and unsure if she even knows what love is, she swears off unreliable things like dating and trying to find that elusive happily-ever-after spark. Focusing on her art seems like the perfect distraction, except she’s missing the physical side of being half a couple. Fortunately, her best friend, Zane, is happy to model for her drawings and pin her down in the bedroom, with no expectations. Just fun.
Zane’s granddad raised him with the belief that people who bring joy to the world should be protected at all costs. For Zane, his best friend Riley is one of those people, and he definitely doesn’t mind when making her happy involves helping her pursue her creative dream and some sport sex with a hint of kink. They can have fun, and he can keep her from falling for the next idiot who comes along while she searches for her Prince Charming.
Regardless of her resolution, as things heat up between them Riley finds herself falling again. She needs to decide if she’s in love with the idea of being in love, or if—despite Zane’s insistence that she deserves someone better—what she feels for him is the real thing. If she can’t learn to trust her heart and convince Zane he’s exactly what she needs, it will obliterate a lifelong friendship.
