He may be ridiculously hot, but….
The man just doesn’t use his head! God gave him more than enough in the brains department, however, that does not mean the guy takes advantage of his smarts and uses that gift!
Certainly this is never more true than when he deals with women. Or I should woman, because there’s always THAT ONE who gets under his skin and takes up residence like she was born to be there. She runs a straight path right to his heart and that’s probably what makes him the most irritated with her. She has some nerve. That woman. Owning his love like that!
And she does, she really, really does.
Despite all of his growling and snarling, and God knows all of his stupid decisions, the man loves this little lady and wants her so much it shocks him. He’s wanted women before, sure, especially the love-without-strings-wake-up-and-leave kind of connections. But this is different. She’s nested inside of him so he can’t turn his back on her and leave. Poor guy. He’s in one helluva bad state isn’t he?
Time doesn’t help this situation for him either. It actually makes it worse. The little lady holds on tighter and tighter to his heart without even being there in person. The more he thinks about it the more he gets all worked up and — the more he wants her. To have, hold, and….well, you know the rest there’s no need to spell it out.
It’s like that proverbial ton of bricks falling down on his head. She’s everywhere he looks! Out on the street, in restaurants, behind the counter in shops, on the park path he likes to walk everyday. And, she’s there next to him in his bed when he wakes up in the middle of the night feeling cold and alone. Even when he’s with someone else.
His life gets turned upside down and he’s spinning like a top trying to turn it back up to where it was before. Control. That’s what he wants. But alas, without the little lady he so very, very dearly cherishes, that, uh, dog just won’t hunt.
And miserable as he is, and that’s what happens to him because the guy is just plain stupid, not without intelligence mind you, just acting stupidly, he does know in his soul that this woman is his whole world and without her – nothing will ever be sweet again.
Look for book # 3 “Race Against Time” to be updated at the end of 2017. Tick tock. That’s coming up soon!
