Rekindling the flame or just keeping each other company?
When Julian Rodriguez has to stay behind and attend to business matters, Kara McCrae offers him to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas with her and her family. Julian returns the favor by requesting her presence as he visits New York to see his family. While they pair have told their families their relationship is just platonic, no one quite buys what the music pair is selling.
Will the former lovers finally get past their issues and rekindle their romance? Or will it be business as usual?
I Knew You Were Trouble is a New Adult romance that deals with second chances and renewed love.
“Contrary to your popular opinion about me, Julian, I can separate love and sex,” Kara stated. “I don’t confuse the two.”
“I never thought you did,” he defended, “I’m speaking of personal experience.”
“You?” She raised an eyebrow. “When have you ever mixed love and sex together?”
The first time they were together, he wanted to say. He had a schoolboy crush on her for a while and denied those feelings due to the age difference between them. The feelings only grew stronger and harder to ignore as time passed. Even at night when he was alone in his thoughts, memories of her floated through his mind and helped with his various masturbation fantasies.
Guilt about how he’d treated her stopped Julian from pursuing her again as he watched another man take his place and ownership of her body. It was a problem he’d solved and now that he was free from his own situation, the timing between them was perfect.
It was time to right the various wrongs.
“I have when we were together,” he admitted, “every time we were together, it wasn’t just lust.”
“So, if what you’re saying is true,” Kara revealed a cunning smile, “that means you loved me the first time we had sex.”
Julian’s eyes twinkled before he briefly opened and closed his mouth. “So, about these cookies we’re making…”
“No! You’re going to answer me!” Kara laughed. “When we made love the first time, you were in love with me, correct?”
Julian chuckled. “We need eggs, flour, and what else?”
“You being honest with me,” Kara turned him to her direction. “You ain’t got to lie, Craig! You ain’t got to lie!”
Julian crushed his lips onto hers, pinning her against the refrigerator door as his hands wandered all over her body. He playfully squeezed her breasts before making his way down to her midsection.
Have mercy on me, please… Kara softly moaned as she drank him in. He tasted of warmth, pleasure, and a bit of liquor. His kissed with a deep hunger and exploration as if he wanted to savor every bit of her mouth and hold onto the memory. His tongue expertly played with hers again and it seemed they never lost a step.
She was going to let him. No more fighting. No more debating. No more of anything negative between them. Whatever Julian wanted to do with Kara, she was going to let him.
He fumbled with the button on her jeans before he suddenly pulled away and began searching the kitchen cabinets. “Cinnamon. We need cinnamon for those cookies.”
Kara breathed hard as she watched her ex. Her panties were damp with want and her mouth was hungry to feast on every bit of his body. “What just happened?”
“I’ve always loved you,” he turned back to her and gave her a sexy wink, “is that a good enough answer?”
