I’d never needed a week away with my brothers so bad until I’d broken up with my girlfriend. Sun, sand, surf and a few drinks to pass the nights away. The female persuasion was the farthest thing from my mind…that was until I lock eyes with the stunning brunette sitting on the other side of the bar.
She turned those pretty grey-blue eyes on me, and it was that moment that I set my sights on her. It didn’t take me long to figure out that she was there alone, even though every time she’d make eye contact with me, she’d glance over her shoulder like she was waiting for someone. It wasn’t my style to gawk, but she was damn cute.
I’ll never forget my first conversation with her either. My brothers and I had decided to move the party from the bar to my hotel room. Things got loud, and before I knew it she was standing on the other side of my door. I was even more surprised to find her wearing nothing but a short t-shirt. Only she wasn’t here to join the party, instead she was raging with anger at the fact we’d kept her up half the night.
As she walked away from me, pulling her t-shirt down to cover herself it was then I decided I was determined to show this uptight but gorgeous woman how to have a little fun. What started out as a fling for me, quickly grows into something more. As vacation ends, we agree to keep seeing one another, but soon I find her pushing me away. Scars from her past have her terrified of the future, and I fear our love will be over before it even begins. I just need to figure out how to convince her that we are worth fighting for.
