They glared at one another for long minutes, his grip pulling her closer and closer to him until the only thing separating them was a thick curtain made of tension, anger, and betrayal.
She could see, feel it, and she wanted to taste it. Taste him. But that would never happen.
“I loathe you more than you could ever imagine,” she practically growled at him. “In the history of people loathing one another, I would win because I loooooaaaathe you so hard.”
With a muffled curse, Tristan fused his mouth to hers.
Pulling away slightly, his gaze met hers, and he smiled at her tenderly. “I was an ass, baby. Forgive me.”
“My sisters say that pillow talk isn’t serious talk.”
“Your sisters don’t know me. They don’t know me at all.”
“I’m glad.” A couple of tears slipped from the corners of her eyes. “I was kinda worried they did,” she confessed. It was one of her most closely guarded fears and admitting it to him was giving him power over her. Never would she tell anyone, not even Skylar, how much it bothered her that they flirted with Tristan.
Even Apple flirted with him, in her own way, and Lemon knew from her own experiences that hate did not mean indifference.
“Sweet Lemon, you have to know that the only McCoy for me has always been you.”
Love So Tempting, in Five
Forgiveness– This is a recurring theme in every book I write, but especially in this one, because the two of them are enemies and like to wound the other.
Consequences– Lemon and Tristan have to deal with the consequence of their one-night stand, and it’s a doozy. 😉
Tempting– These two tempt each other in many ways, whether it be in love, hate, or snark on one another.
Passionate- Tristan and Lemon are two people who do everything with passion, it’s naturally a part of their personality, which drives them to sometimes act first and think later. But it has also enabled them to survive a war, start a business, and achieve long-held dreams.
Family– Family plays an integral role in driving these two apart and keeping them together. You’ll have to read the book to see just how far Lemon’s sister will go to protect her from one of those Lawson Men.
