Five years ago, Gabrielle left Castle Rock to follow her high school sweetheart and the father of her child to college. After he walks out of their lives, Gabrielle finds herself back in her home town with her daughter while she tries to start over. Enter Nathan, her best friends older brother. He offers Gabrielle and her daughter a place to live until they're back on their feet. And as simple as Gabrielle expects it to be, it's anything but. Especially when Gabrielle realises just how attractive Nathan is and Nathan might realise that Gabrielle is everything is he's ever wanted. "Stop," Nathan says suddenly, his voice hoarse and loud, startling me. His eyes are dark, dilated and fixed on my mouth. "Just . . . stop." This is what I'd wanted when I started reading to him, to wind him up and get the upper hand. Now that I have it, I'm not sure this was the best idea because the way he's looking at me, creates a dampness between my legs. "Why?" I ask, the word comes out a whisper. He stands up and I have to contain a gasp at the obvious bulge in his slacks. "Because I'm not hearing that character asking those questions," he stops in front of me, looking down. "I'm hearing you, asking to make me come, and I'm damn near close to letting you." This is a QB Bad Boy and Me story, but it can be read as a stand alone !
