Dean Winchester is at the place he really doesn’t want to be – stuck at the airport.
Coming back from a family emergency, he would rather be relaxed at his home in Manhattan Beach, California, and getting his head back into the hockey game. Instead, he’s stuck at the worst airport in all of America – Chicago’s infamous O’Hare. At least the company he’s keeping isn’t too bad to look at. He only needs to convince her there can be something more if she wants it – and if she doesn’t kill him first.
Sydney Walker hates weddings. And she really hates weddings that she’s the bridesmaid in.
Returning from her third wedding in a year where she has perfected the role of bridesmaid, Sydney only wants to get back home in San Francisco. A snowed-in flight and every hotel room booked to capacity, Sydney is forced to share a room with a gorgeous man from Southern California. She’s not necessarily worried about him making a move on her but rather, if she could keep her hands to herself.
Breakaway is a sensual New Adult romance series that deals with trust, long-distance relationships, and finding yourself again. It is a New Adult trilogy.
“You’re beautiful, funny, and incredibly sexy.” He leaned back into his chair. “I have to ask you why you’re single.”
Sydney took a sip of wine and let the fruity liquid roll around her tongue before she swallowed. It was a good question that she didn’t quite have the answer to. She didn’t quite believe in the old adage of choice or circumstance but her bad luck (or was it simply bad taste?) in men made her wonder if she was the real lunatic. “I’m a good girl who wants the bad boy and somewhere in there, I realize the bad boy is an asshole so I get left alone.”
“Why do good girls want bad boys?” He asked. “I never understood that. There are plenty of good guys out there.”
“And those good guys live in their mama’s basement playing Dungeons and Dragons while drinking their third Mountain Dew.” She chuckled. “Bad boys are exciting and a little dangerous, living on the edge. Good girls keep their noses clean for the most part so we like that danger, that ummph.”
Dean leaned forward and Sydney noticed the sparkle in his eyes. “Do you think you would be able to handle my ummph?”
Sydney’s heart slammed against her chest and for a brief second, she had to remember to breathe. She swallowed hard and let out a sigh. “Say what?”
“You said you like that danger, you want that ummph…I’m giving you an opportunity. Can you handle mine?”
Sydney found the courage and met Dean’s challenge. “If you’re suggesting a one-night stand, that ship done sailed a long time ago, partner.” She purred.
Dean reached over and touched fingers with Sydney. She immediately felt a heat surge through her body and it pooled between her thighs. Once again, she had to focus on breathing. “Who said anything about a one-night stand?”
“You’re seriously suggesting a long-distance relationship?” She asked. “Yeah, I can see why you’re called The Lunatic.”
“I’m suggesting I want to see where this goes, starting with tonight.” He pressed. “It could be nothing or it could everything.”
Sydney bit back a moan. She did not like the feelings Dean created within her. He looked like a dude that had a big-ass neon TROUBLE sign over his head. She knew his type; she’d been with his type. The type of guy who would straddle a girl against the wall before he threw her across the bed and mount her, leaving her head spinning, and wondering exactly when did cuddling become sexing as they watched a movie.
