Excerpt

The air shifted once we were alone. Ty stretched out his long legs, crossing them at the ankle, and then connected his hands behind his head, like he didn’t have a care in the world. His tee lifted just a bit and I tried not to let my gaze wander to the sliver of tanned abs that was on display, but I couldn’t help myself.

“So…” he said.

“So what?” I hissed, before opening my computer screen and pulling up the budget for Talia’s wedding. “Let’s get down to business.”

“Sure. Sounds good to me.”

I looked up to see him drinking me in. “Stop looking at me all smug and sex driven.”

“How does one look sex driven?” he said over his laughter.

“I don’t know, Ty. Maybe you should try looking in a mirror.”

“Come on, Ive. Stop this. Can’t we talk?”

“About the budget? Sure.” I kept my eyes trained on my screen.

He moved to his feet and came around my desk, and I swear I stopped breathing. “Fine. Let me look at the budget.” He stood behind me leaning over my chair and I squeezed my thighs together because holy hell, my lady bits do still work. Was it his scent? Was he shooting his pheromones at me or something?

“So, the total is at the bottom. Do you have issues with anything? These are the line items here,” my voice came out in a whisper, with a side of lust.

What in the hell.

You’re better than this Ivy.

“It all looks good to me.” He turned my chair, so I was facing him. “You look good. I’ve missed you something fierce.”

I narrowed my gaze and shoved back in my chair, my wheels making it easy to move away and put some much needed distance between me and the pheromone king.

“That ship has sailed, Ty. It sailed a long time ago when you disappeared from my life. So, if you don’t want to talk about the budget, then I am going to have to ask you to leave. Don’t make me call security.”

He barked out a laugh. “Why are you so nervous?”

“I’m not nervous. I’m annoyed. Can you not tell the difference, Mr. Country Star?”

He moved toward me, and his tongue swiped out and wet his bottom lip.

Halleluiah, mother of Mary, Lord have mercy, holy hell fire…this man would be the death of me.

“Have dinner with me tomorrow night. We can go to our favorite old place, Dean Taylors Steak House,” he said.

I gasped, let out a few appalled huffy breaths to make it clear that that was not happening. “You must be dreaming.”

“I do dream about you often.”

“I already have a date tomorrow. As a matter of fact, he and I are having dinner at Dean Taylors tomorrow night,” I said proudly as I moved to my feet and stepped further from him. I’d most definitely be taking Dr. Scotty up on his offer.

“Who is he?” he asked, and he looked so smug I wanted to slap the sexy right off

his face.

“He’s a doctor. He’s opening his own veterinary practice here in town. It’s all very impressive.” I smiled and crossed my arms over my chest to calm my racing heart.

He moved closer. Invading my space once again. “What’s his name, Ive?”

“You smug bastard. His name is Dr. Scotty.” My back hit the wall and he was so close our noses were almost touching.

I couldn’t move. I was paralyzed by his gaze.

And nothing was going according to plan.
