“She’s given some meaning to the chaos that I happen to call a life, and I want more.”


If someone asked whether or not you wanted to know something that would be life altering, what would you say? Would it really be worth knowing at the risk of changing your world?


Dax Blakely wasn’t given this choice. With the unknown diagnosis of his brother lingering at the forefront of every thought, all he can do is immerse himself in thoughts focusing around the worst outcomes. When Dax learns of the bleak prognosis, he is unable to sit back and watch his world crumble, so he demands the top experts treat his only living family member.  The last thing he expects to interfere is an off-limits romance.


Being thrust into a position where he must quash his desires, Dax isn’t willing to let the woman he wants get away.  Unfortunately, he’s fallen and there’s no turning back. With her evading every advance, his need to pursue her grows deeper and deeper, until an unexpected familial turn of events makes him realize what he wants may not be what he really needs after all.

so presumptuous, aren’t you? A little fact about me that you may like to know:

I. Don’t. Lose. Oh, and I have every intention of talking to you again.”

a challenge.” I shrug and pull away from her, playing with the interior door

buttons, refusing to look her in the eye.

                I tip

my ball cap and leave her to think about that. “Until next time.”

                I close

her door and tap it as I turn to leave. I wonder what would happen if I had the

balls to lean in and kiss her. I’m not certain, but I wouldn’t put it past her

to slap me if I tried.

                While I

walk away, I turn to see her and find her staring after me. I can’t refrain the

urge to wink. Seeing her overcome by my antics is such a delight.

continue my ascent to the street. Tonight was exactly the type of night I was

needing. A reprieve from the stresses at home. A break from thoughts of Liam’s

treatment. A chance to get to know Brighton on a personal level.



pleased with how the evening turned out and can only hope that there will be

many more in the future. For now, I guess I should focus on my trip and the

prospect of seeing her once I return. When I make my way back out, I shake my

head at this new predicament.

I’ve just opened a whole new world of trouble.
