I was finally going to find out if it was him. I knew it was. It had to be. Everything that had happened with Trent had been a mistake. Carter was the guy I wanted. He was going to take the memories of Trent away.
“Baby…” Carter mumbled against my lips, before removing them and pressing his forehead against mine. “We gotta slow down.”
“No,” I urged. “We really don’t.” I pulled his lips back to mine. “I want this. I want you,” I pleaded, hearing the desperation in my voice. I needed to know the truth.
“So do I,” he assured me before taking a step back. He grabbed my hands and caught his breath. “Really I do, but I think we should slow down. I don’t want you to do something you’d regret.”
“Never stopped me before,” I said with a playful wink. I hadn’t let fear or regret stop me in the stairwell. Or in my apartment last night which would have been a good damn time for it to do so.
“Oh, really.” He chuckled.
“Really.” I stared up into his eyes waiting for him to just admit that it was him the night of the Gala, but he didn’t. Instead, he pulled me to my feet and wrapped his arms around my waist. His head fell to my shoulder as he tightened his embrace. “This will happen, Hannah. Just not in my office with the entire staff of my restaurant waiting on the other side of the door. I’ll teach you to be patient, sweetheart,” he whispered.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany… I should write a book. And I did it!
If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.
