EXCERPT FROM FIND ME
In slow motion, she recognized what he would do. What she saw and what her mind perceived didn’t connect. His arms opened and wrapped around her. The “you’re crashing” vibe rushed forward in the form of a solid hard body and muscular arms. The embrace removed her anger, eradicated how upset she was with him, and eliminated the shock, just as it had done as a teen, just as he’d done when she was ten trapped in the room searching for her kitty. He soothed her. All the bad disappeared and vanished like a puff of smoke. At least her heart said so, and she allowed it a few moments of bliss, of forgiveness before she remembered her major organ didn’t rule anymore, her mind did.
She had one mission in Heather Ridge, nothing more, to find and meet her soul mate. Okay, yeah, that sounded crazy and didn’t make sense, but the FIND ME candy myth she could believe in, even understand, but not this. Not her arms gripping Coop tighter, not her face burying into his neck smelling his scent that made her eyes roll back into her head.
Hell’s bells, why did her body love pursuing him? Something ripped open inside her, like happiness, comfort, and fulfillment, though she couldn’t put a finger on exactly what. Whatever the feeling, it caused her to soak his shirt with her tears.
If she’d let herself admit the truth, she would confess she missed his touch more than she’d ever missed anything.
His body trembled. Having a quick hug was one thing, but crying over lost time she couldn’t handle. See, her heart didn’t rule. She eased away and wiped a hand under her nose.
Damn him, he didn’t let go. He slid a finger across her cheek. “My God, I’ve missed you.”
This close, she witnessed the compassion in his whiskey eyes reinforcing the tone of his sweet voice. If she’d seen them as a teen when he’d gently spoken, she would have melted, like she wanted to right now. Which she couldn’t do. “I’m mad at you.” He dropped his hand to his side, and she whimpered.
