forever—the one he’s never been able to forget. Now a twist of fate has brought them back together, and
he never wants to let her out of his inked arms again. But Tristan is haunted by a dark past of his own.
On the run from ruthless criminals that shattered Josie’s world years ago, reentering her life puts them
both in danger.As Josie and Tristan’s lives become tangled once again, they find themselves unwilling and unable to escape the relentless pull that draws them together. But will the past leave their love in ruins—or bind them together for a lifetime?

Excerpt
Josie craved his touch and she couldn’t understand why they hadn’t had sex yet, or any form

of it. She wanted it; her fingers ached to touch him in places she’d only yet imagined. It was

obvious that Tristan felt the same way, so she failed to make sense of his need to take things

slow. She longed to feel his sweat slicked skin against hers and inhale the scent of their bodies

combined. Not ready to admit any kind of emotional connection, she desperately needed a

physical one. It was the only thing she was comfortable with.


She found it curious that her dependency seemed to be shifting. No longer did she need

meaningless sex or drugs to numb her. Josie only wanted to submerge herself in Tristan, to

soak up everything he offered. He was her new addiction.

Tristan was in a constant state of arousal in Josie’s company. Never able to completely relax,

his muscles remained tense and rigid with yearning. If it had been any other girl, he would

have taken her already, hard and fast, several times. But he knew that Josie used sex to avoid

attachment. He didn’t want to be just another mark on her therapeutically notched bedpost. To

him, Josie was something new, yet familiar, something he wanted to cherish. He felt like two

ancient souls, separated for a lifetime, had suddenly been reunited.

Unable to contain the sexual tension clawing at her skin, Josie slid her notebook from her lap

and straddled Tristan. He gave her his lopsided grin as his long fingers wrapped around her

waist. Josie smiled triumphantly, thinking that she’d already won.

“What are you up to?” he asked, dipping his head so that his lips pressed ever so softly to her

shoulder.

“I need to feel you Tristan. Just touch me.” The sound of Josie’s words echoed around the quiet

room. “I want you.”

Those three little words left him breathless. Such a brazen statement from Josie sent his

willpower into a faltering tailspin. He hummed in agreement, sliding his kisses down to her

neck.

Josie ran her nails along Tristan’s scalp, making his eyes close in contentment. The feel of her

hot body pressing down on him caused momentary insanity, totally emptying his brain of rational

thought. He wanted her more than anything he’d ever wanted before. Not here, not now. There

was so much more to say.

“Can I take you out?” Tristan asked, suddenly moving his hands back down to her waist and

resuming a neutral position.

 “Out of the apartment?”

“Out on a date,” he clarified.

“A date?” Josie asked, her frightened voice making the words sound foreign.

"You know, an appointment for a particular time, especially with a person to whom one is

sexually or romantically attached."

"Are we attached?" she asked, not really knowing what she wanted the answer to be.

"More than you know," he answered.
