Teaser Tuesday

Here is an UNEDITED snippet from my next book More Than A Billionaire.

Gray ate both slices of pizza before he spoke again. “You’re quiet over there.” He grabbed a third slice. “Are you sure you’re okay?” He left the pizza slice untouched in his plate.

She’d spent the last several minutes avoiding eye contact. With him waiting for an answer it seemed rude to keep staring at her plate. Kiera looked up and forced her eyes to meet his.

“Fine. Really.”

Gray remained silent as if considering her words. Then reached for her hand. “I don’t believe you.” He squeezed her hand and waited.

Every Sherbrooke she knew shared one characteristic, which was stubbornness. Gray included. If he suspected something bothered her, he wouldn’t give up until he got the truth or she tossed him out. She didn’t want to toss him out.

“Before,” she paused and her eyes dropped to his mouth then she met his eyes again. While his eyes were not as unique a shade of blue as many of the Sherbrookes, she found them beautiful.

“You know when we were in the kitchen.” Kiera bounced her knee under the table and bumped his leg.

“Did I upset you?”

“No. Well, yes.” Kiera heard a growl and realized it came from her. Why did he have to sit so close? He could’ve picked the chair across the table, but no he had picked the one next to her.

“Why?”

“Why what?” He moved his hand to her shoulder.

Less space separated them now. Had she moved forward or had he?

“Why did you do it?”

Gray leaned forward, and his voice became a mere whisper. “Because I couldn’t stop myself. Like now.”

She saw the intent in his eyes, but the press of his lips on her startled her anyway.
