Author: Magan Vernon
Release Date: March 18, 2015
William "Tripp" Chapman has always been the black sheep of his family's political dynasty. His oldest brother works on Wall Street, his youngest-groomed for the senate. And Tripp is the brother known for wrecking his Porsche after a drinking bender and winding up in rehab.
On the night of his father's presidential election he takes a detour and meets a waitress at a local hole-in-the wall. Samantha "Sam" Green is just as broken as he is, but covers it up with enough snark so no one tries to get too close.
When Sam gets kicked out of her apartment, Tripp agrees that she can crash on his couch until she gets on her feet. But as they grow closer physically, the ghosts of their past threaten to burden their new relationship.
The Only Way they can overcome their demons is to face them instead of running. Can Sam help Tripp find his way or will their own battles bury them further?
The Only series is a series of standalone novels. You do not need to read one in order to fully understand the other. M/F. HEA.
"Do I frighten you?" My voice came out lower than I intended. A cross between a growl and a whisper.
I put my hands on the counter behind her, splaying my fingers out so my pinky and thumb barely touched her.
She licked her lips and shook her head. "No."
I leaned in closer, pressing myself against her. She tilted her chin back, never taking her eyes off mine. I tried to focus on her intense stare instead of letting my gaze trail to her pink lips and the sparrow tattoos on her collar bone.
"Most girls in your situation would either want to fight me or fuck me. The look in your eyes says you want a little bit of both."
I pushed a fallen strand of her red hair behind her ear and trailed my finger down her cheek.
A small smile crossed her lips. "Maybe I do."
I leaned in closer so that my breath tickled her lips. "What would you do if I asked to kiss you right now?"
She gripped the front of my shirt and pulled me to her. "I’d tell you not to be a pussy and just fucking kiss me."
She crushed her lips to mine and an involuntary growl parted my lips. She nibbled at my bottom lip before her tongue slid against mine. She swirled my tongue ring with hers, claiming my mouth as her own.
I wrapped my arms around her waist and then slid my hands lower, cupping her ass and lifting her onto the counter. Her legs pressed against my hips and I could feel her heat against me. God help me if I didn’t want to fuck her right there.
