Dani refuses to lose another parent due to her absence from their life. After pulling herself back together following the death of her father, she moves back to her childhood town to live with her mom. She’s slowly pulled back into the lifestyle she worked so hard to get away from ten years ago. She accepts that this is the life she has always been destined to live. Getting a job at the store down the road and hooking back up with her first love Gage, seems to be the logical way to go…that is until Holden Reynolds shows up in town.
Now that Holden is finally back home from the Navy he plans on following in his father’s footsteps. Still trying to move on from the one woman who had his heart, he busies himself in work and returning to the country boy lifestyle he’s always loved. The best way to get over someone is to get under someone, right? That’s his mindset as he travels town to town with his job perfectly content with being a rambling man…that is until he meets Danielle Brooks.
When Dani isn't leaving and Holden isn't staying will they be able to keep themselves from getting too attached? Or will they be just what each other needs to cut all the strings that have them bound?
“You can’t save me from me, Holden.” –Dani
ExcerptDani “Have you even been skinny dipping, Holden?” I ask as I start to slowly undress. “No, this will be a first,” he says as he pulls his shirt over his head, his eyes never leaving my body. “Have you?” “Yeah, I used to go a lot when I was younger.” I slowly drag my skirt down my legs. “But besides the fact that I was usually the only girl, I was also the only one who was fully developed.” I let my eyes travel up and down Holden’s now naked body before letting them rest at the area below his waistline for a little longer than I should. Dirty thoughts flood my mind. Mainly thoughts of how good I bet he feels. “But my, oh my, how the times have changed,” I say before biting my lip to keep from saying anything else. “Yes, they have, Hot Shot.” He rakes his gaze over me standing there in my panties and bra. “Meet ya in the water.” He winks before taking off towards the dock. I watch him as he goes, taking in every movement of each muscle, mainly that one called the gluteus maximus. Day-um, does Holden have a fine behind. I just want to squeeze it. And smack it. And grip it as he’s pushing himself into me. Dirty thoughts, again.
