“Breathe,” she told him quietly in the same tone he’d used on her a number of times. “In and out.”
Was she freaking asking for his permission to strip? “Hell no, I don’t mind.”
“I just knew then. You were it for me.”

Blake heard the tussle and his heart nearly beat out of his chest as he bolted in the room.
“Find people in the building. Ask questions. You’re no help to her if you can’t think straight.”

A sharp fist to her kidney cut off her air. Pain exploded in her back and ricocheted in her torso…

He was about to pull away, when she got closer and deepened the kiss.
This didn’t feel right at all. The hair on her neck prickled as she felt his presence behind her.

Abbey sighed, wishing the night over already. Wishing she’d never gone to that Seger Hughes concert…

He didn’t want to move, could barely manage to get air into this lungs knowing it was Abbey touching him now.
Blake’s sidelong glance nearly melted her panties.
July 17 / 18 days
“Don’t. Please, Abbey. Just stay. I promise I won’t ask you any questions. Just stay with me.”
And boom, he was right back in the palm of her hand, needing to comfort her, needing to keep her safe…
July 16 / 19 days
If Blake had known that would get Abbey to hold his hand, he’d have considered standing in traffic months ago.
“Don’t—” His sudden attempt to face her sent a shock of pain sizzling through his chest…

Just like that, the lights went out on the sunny day.
“Yeah, it’s not every day a guy gets to make out with a Hummer tire.

That brief contact of her soft skin sent a bolt of heat straight to his gut.
“You haven’t been a bitch. Just a puzzle.”

Blake laughed and gently used his index finger to close her mouth. Just the tiny touch zinged through him.
July 8 / 27 days:
“Nobody to get, but we found blood.”
“It’s going to be okay,” he whispered. “The detectives will figure out what’s happening. These guys are good.”
July 7 / 28 days:
Run! Get help! Hurry! The words flashed in her brain as the danger hit her head on. “Get her!”
A brick wall stopped her. Strong arms came around her and this time, the scream dying to get out, let loose.
