"My favorite kind of heartache is one that turns a frown right side up. Skye is at the top of that list. Rae takes her gift for humor and brings joy to your heart. Sugar with a generous dose of sentiment makes for an irresistible romance." - (Isha C., Blogger, Reader, Reviewer)
Walking down the aisle toward my arch enemy wasn't exactly what I was picturing when I planned out my dream wedding as a little kid.
It's because I'm a glutton for punishment and love a good underdog story, and the more I get to know Liam, the more I can see that he's exactly that.
I just hope I'm not wrong about him.
Marriage is a load of crap and my dad knows it, which is why he insisted I find a wife if I ever wanted to touch my inheritance.
Little does he know, I don't have a problem getting my hands dirty in order to get what I want. And if I have to use my little brother's nanny to prove it, I will.
Besides, the girl drives me insane. It's not like we have anything in common other than our mutual disdain for each other.
This'll be a walk in the park.
“Is someone jealous?” Liam asks, having the decency to keep his voice low so only I can hear.
Pursing my lips, I grit out, “No.”
His chuckle makes me turn in my seat to face him with a glare.
“Seriously! I’m not!” I defend myself. “It’s a respect thing, ya know? They know we’re married. They’re not stupid. I’m wearing a ring. You’re wearing a ring. They can’t be that dense. But they’re acting like I’m not even here!” I whisper shout. “And I need to pee, but I’m afraid if I leave you alone for two seconds, they’ll each grab a leg like their a couple of dogs in heat, and go to town!”
This time, his laughter isn’t quiet at all. It’s a full blown, slap your knee, tears in your eyes, gut laugh that has heads turning in front and behind of us, including the two girl dogs to my left. In fact, I can feel them staring at my red face right now, already applauding their success like they’ve already won.
Kill me now.
“Hey Skye?” Liam rumbles low in his throat before nudging me playfully.
I ignore him and hunch a little lower in my seat.
I keep staring straight ahead of me.
“Skye,” he repeats a third time.
“Leave me alone,” I mumble under my breath.
“Come on, it was funny! I mean, the imagery! Am I right?”
With another quick glare in his direction, he shuts up, but it doesn’t make his smile disappear. Nope. That thing is still firmly in place.
“Okay, look. You’re right,” he caves after another few seconds of tense silence. “They’re being disrespectful to you by ogling the hot American guy so openly. So what should we do about it?”
He’s enjoying this way too much, but I do appreciate the camaraderie thing he’s trying to initiate. I gotta give him a little credit.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve, I mutter, “I don’t know?”
“You don’t know? Come on… I’m sure you can think of something…”
“I can’t think straight! I need to pee!” I huff.
His amused expression transforms into a mischievous one right before my eyes.
“I have an idea.”
Gaze narrowing, I ask, “And what’s that?”
“You want to make them back off?”
“You want to make them jealous?”
I’m stupid enough to nod a second time.
“Then follow my lead.”
One of his big warm hands grips the side of my face before he leans in and presses his mouth to mine. Sliding right past first base, his tongue slips between my lips before his other hand manages to find my upper thigh. Then he glides it right up toward very dangerous territory.
Ripping my mouth away from his, I grab his wrist that’s dangerously close to my crotch and pant, “What the hell are you doing?”
“Making them question their own desirability instead of making you question yours.”
