Noah lightly grasped her elbow and ushered her toward the parking lot, which was located across the street from Murphy’s. “Come on, I’m walking you to your car, and I’m not taking no for an answer so don’t waste your breath arguing.”
Natalie relaxed and smiled, and they walked by the other storefronts along the street to the intersection.
“You know, we could consider this nice, casual stroll to your car a first date,” he suggested, only half joking. He’d take a date with her any way he could get one.
She thrust her hands deep into her jacket pockets and slanted him a sly look. “Ah, so you do have an ulterior motive other than seeing me safely to my car.”
“A very harmless motive, I swear.” He held up his hands and attempted to look innocent. “We could head over to Starbucks and get a coffee and just talk about the weather if you’d like.”
An incredulous burst of laughter escaped her. “The weather? Are you serious?”
He shrugged and winked at her. “I wouldn’t want our first date to be too personal.”
She chewed on her full bottom lip, looking torn, then said, “Noah, I can’t.”
The light at the intersection was red, and Noah pushed the button to give them the right of way, unwilling to give up on her so easily this time. “Not even one coffee? I promise no hand-holding or kissing.”
That made her smile again, but her next words shot down his hopes. “I’m sorry, but I’ve got a big test on Monday I need to study for.”
“We could have a study date,” he suggested. “There are a few things I’m really good at teaching.”
“I’m not going to touch that one,” she murmured huskily. Hearing someone approach from behind, she glanced over her shoulder briefly, then back at Noah. “You don’t give up, do you?”
Something in her expression had changed in those few seconds, and there was now a troubled glint in her eyes that snagged his attention, but he didn’t understand its source. Wanting to soothe her sudden anxiety, he picked up her hand and drew a lazy pattern on her palm with his index finger. “I’d give up if you told me to get lost and meant it.”
She stared at him, then shook her head, sending her soft dark waves brushing across her shoulders. “You’re way too—”
“Irresistible?” He graced her with one of his enticing grins that never failed to score him extra points with the opposite sex.
The light changed to green, the cars on the street stopped, and they stepped off the curb to cross, severing the contact of their joined hands. “I was thinking more along the lines of persistent.”
He laughed. “Hey, I do have a few faults.”
MARY’s 5 STAR REVIEW
Don’t fret because with a PI in the book you know there will be plenty of suspense too.Noah and Natalie have had a thing for each other for a while. Noah had been trying for quite a while to get Natalie to go out with him. But with Natalie’s past haunting her she chose not to complicate her life by dating. Little was Noah aware that she lived in fear of her past finding her. One evening as they were all walking out to their cars after work Natalie thinks that she sees the person from her past. Her fear of this person is so overwhelming that she ends up running across the street and being hit by a car.At the hospital Noah is overwhelmed with concern for Natalie so when the doc asks for family he steps up as her fiancé. Of course, this is far from the truth, but it gives him access to her condition and also makes it easier for him to protect her. Needless to say, Natalie has amnesia and without her memory she is none the wiser to Noah not being her fiancé. But as it comes time for Natalie to be discharged from the hospital it brings up another dilemma…. going home with Noah. This is were the hotness begins!! While Natalie honestly believes that she and Noah are engaged there are many times that Noah is anything but comfortable in their close quarters.But it does not take long for Noah to realize that he has to decide whether he is going to give in to Natalie’s wanton ways. After all, if they are engaged why wouldn’t he? It was pretty clear from the start that these two are absolutely combustible in bed. They could not get enough of each other. Surprisingly, Natalie is a little vixen with an insatiable appetite for Noah. The hard thing for Noah even though he knew they were living a lie, he just could not get enough of Natalie either. What are these two to do once the truth comes out.
Will Noah’s heart be shattered?
Or will Natalie feel betrayed when the truth comes out?
