Cash Doyle can describe himself in one word—broken. Broken psyche and broken body. There’s nothing he wants more than to get to know Katy Nolan-Delaney on a more intimate level, but there’s one thing stopping him and that’s fear.
Katy knows there’s something mysterious about Cash and that’s part of the attraction. What she can’t figure out is why he’s wanted to do nothing more than kiss her on the cheek each time they’ve been on a date.
Does he want to be just friends? Is he really a married man? And why does he insist on separate rooms on their trip to Vegas? Is Katy wasting her time on another man who’s going to break her heart?
And for Cash, will Katy be patient enough with him to let him heal before he springs his secret on her? Or will this seemingly perfect pair never get a chance to fall in love?
Be Warned: sex toys
Cash thought he’d fall straight to sleep when his head hit the pillow but he didn’t.
He’d promised to tell Katy his secret and what had kept him from taking her to bed. And he’d keep his word. He couldn’t keep leading her on. She was a beautiful young woman and had a right to be with a man that could take care of all her needs. He’d grown so fond of her, yeah, maybe even borderline in love with her over these past three months. He’d never felt this sort of thing for a woman so quickly and that’s what made him think he’d finally found the one.
Bile rose in his throat at the thought of losing her…Katy walking away and him never seeing her again. So many thoughts spun around in his head. He picked up the book on the bedside table, read for an hour hoping it would put him to sleep, but it didn’t. He finally gave up thinking he’d turn on the TV but he didn’t want to disturb Katy. She was sleeping on just the other side of the wall.
He’d never watched her sleep. Never been in her bed. How he wanted to open the door between their rooms, crawl in beside her and hold her. Ask her to have patience with him. Let her get used to his broken body first. Let him take some time being bold enough to let her see him naked.
