Vaughn, the uptight jock, was settling for me as his publicist and I resented the implication that I wasn’t as good as my sisters.
I didn’t know what he had against me, but I planned to do the best damn job I could and then hightail it out of his small town. Because despite it all, he was just the kind of macho ladies’ man who could seduce my body and wreak havoc with my heart. But considering he was pushing me away as hard as I was running, we ought to survive our time together just fine.
Now, outside my apartment building, I could sense the star football player staring as he strode around the back of the vehicle to help with my bags. Though it was early summer and I expected to be hot, the sizzling spike in my body temperature had nothing to do with the weather and everything to do with the man staring at me from behind his dark lenses.
He took one look at the dog travel bag hanging from my shoulder and slid his glasses down on his nose. “No fucking way.”
I grit my teeth. “I am not leaving him behind.”
“You’re only going to be gone a few days. Isn’t there a neighbor who can take it?” he asked, looking pained at the thought of bringing my pet along.
“Not it. He. And he’s still skittish from being on death row. He needs the certainty of knowing I’m not going to abandon him.” And since I knew exactly what that fear felt like, there was no room for compromise.
Vaughn set his jaw and opened the back door of the truck. He hefted my large suitcase, laptop, and duffel, which held my toiletries, into the trunk. That was when his gaze fell onto the rabbit’s cage.
“Oh, for the love of—” He bit back a curse. “Why don’t you just live on a farm?”
“What do you have against animals?”
Vaughn raised his gaze heavenward and drew an even breath. “I have nothing against them.”
“Do you have a pet?” I asked, standing up for myself and arguing right back.
“No pets. Not since I was ten.”
I sniffed. “It was probably a dog. A big old nasty mutt,” I muttered. “I’ll bet you had matching personalities.”
“Actually, it was a fish.”
Shaking my head, I tried to reason with him. “Look. Many hotels allow pets so it shouldn’t be hard to keep these guys out of your way.”
“Hotel?” He let out a laugh.
He shook his head.
“Bed and breakfast?” I asked hopefully.
“Honey, would I be building a lodge if the town didn’t have the need?”
I shrugged. “I just got this assignment, remember? I’m not yet up to speed. But I will be.” I patted the laptop he’d just placed on top of my large suitcase at the same time his hand came to rest on the computer. “So where am I staying?”
He stretched his neck from side to side, looking like he was in pain. “At my place.”
And now I knew why. The two of us under one roof? I raised my eyebrows at him.
“Trust me, it’s not a come-on,” he said, before I could reply.
“Are you sure about that?” I asked. I couldn’t help but push him when he was being rude … and yet sexy at the same time.
He met my gaze, jaw tight, before he replied. “What my body wants and what I know is right for me are two different things.”
Ouch. “No sense sugarcoating it,” I muttered, hurt by his callous words.
Three sisters were orphans in frilly dresses when they went to live with their sports-lawyer uncle in his world of locker rooms, bookies and gambling. Now the girls are publicists in their uncle’s firm, The Hot Zone and ready to rumble with the sexiest athletes on the planet.
