Mechanic Benjamin Starwell can’t stop thinking about Belle Hamlin, the ballsy musician he slept with and skipped out on months earlier. He never meant to get her pregnant, but he’ll do whatever it takes to win back her trust and be a part of his child’s life. His desire for Belle drives him to be a better man, but he’s worn thin with a garage to run and his estranged sister dumping her troubles on him.
Belle’s juggling impending motherhood, her indie rock career, and a stalker who’s determined to see her fail. Even though she’s desperate to get her priorities straight, she pushes aside her past hurt and welcomes Benji back into her bed. She never expects him to slip into her heart.
When the danger escalates, they face the greatest challenge of all—protecting their unborn child.
Excerpt (Five Flames)
He slowed his breakneck pace, easing his shaft in and out.
She whimpered and struck his chest. Ow. She shook her hand. Was he made of steel?
“Beg. Tell me you want me, can’t live without me. I won’t change my mind about us, Belle. Tell me you know that.” He feathered his lips over her chin. “Or we stop.”
“It’s my turn. You were in control last time. I should be—”
Benji stilled, halfway lodged inside her.
“No.” The pressure in her body uncoiled. Belle wrapped her legs back around him and thrust her hips. “Please, don’t stop.” She pressed her face to his chest, fighting a sob. Her vagina throbbed in desperate need around his cock.
He shifted a little, pushing deeper, but it wasn’t enough. Not by a long shot.
“Oh fuck, I know it. You won’t leave me.”
“Surrender, Belle. Give me everything. Let me take care of you. There’s no shame in it.” He thrust hard, just once. His breath teased her inner ear. “You’re so strong, babe, but it’s time to do the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do—let go. Be mine.”
“Oh, God.” Air stuttered through her lungs. Could she really let go and start over? “I need you inside me, Benji. I need all of you. Please. Give me release. Take me over the edge.”
The harsh, lustful scowl on his face softened as she hiccuped.
“Good enough.” He kissed her forehead and thrust to the hilt, arching his back. His head fell back on his shoulders as he shouted.
“Ahh!” Her feminine muscles clamped him. God, the burn. Her thighs ached.
“You won’t say it, but make no mistake—you’re mine, Belle. I’ll take you like this for the rest of our lives.”
Liquid desire clutched her inner core. Her muscles stiffened, joints tightened. She clung to her lover, digging her nails deep against his back. Her release spiraled out of control. A tsunami had nothing on the waves rushing through her veins. She screamed, the pressure so intense it hurt.
“That’s it, babe.” Benji buried his face in the crook of her neck. “Fuck, you’re so tight.” His body jerked. He shouted, his orgasm surely striking like a gale-force wind. They rode the tide, locked in each other’s arms. He kissed the line of her jaw. “You make me happy.”
“Good.” She stroked his bristled cheek. “I’m happy when I’m with you.”
He kissed her with a soft sweep of his lips that tingled her toes. Still nestled inside her, he tugged up his jeans and carried her to the bedroom for another round of playtime.
