I is for Intimacy





My A-Z Theme is based on my books, the Game On series. You won’t need to have read them to follow this story, since it’s slightly removed from the full plot, like a side story. What it will do is give you a glimpse into my characters, and a chance to get to know them a little bit, PLUS, during the story, you will get a mini tour of parts of the UK! The posts will come from two of my main characters, Leah Walker and Radleigh McCoy.  If this is your first time here, please start at the letter A. :D

 I - Intimacy
(Leah)

Being in Cornwall with Radleigh was a pretty weird experience. Just as I suspected, he was baffled by the quaintness, but at the same time, he soaked it up. He listened to my stories and with each one, some of my apprehension over being with him fell away.

Nobody could blame me for being cautious, right? We went through a lot. There was never a part of me that didn’t want to be with him, but I had to hold back just a little, just to be sure. After the apologies, and the realisation that we’d both messed up before, intimacy was building between us. Not just physical intimacy – we’d never had a problem in that area. It was everything. He was still the arrogant berk he was when I first met him, but it came out in different ways. Instead of trying to find the fastest way to make me want to throttle him, he used his egocentric side to make me laugh. 

Truth be told, I’d never wanted to change that side of him. Call me crazy, but when he’s being an arrogant pain in the ass, he’s sexy as hell. I just needed him to rein it in a bit. To show me I meant more than the floozies that hopped in and out of his bed. He’d done that.
We’d proved to each other that we were where we wanted to be.

Today's Teaser comes from Blindsided, the second book in the Game On Series.
Blurb: After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.

Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?

  3. It's true that a guy's arrogant side can both be sexy as hell and make you want to strangle them. I've been there. And the teaser is awesome!

  4. Oh, I like the way their relationship is morphing and wrapping around them--like they're becoming soul mates instead of starting out that way.

    I agree with L.G. - that teaser is great.

    1. He's pretty decent most of the time - he wasn't always, though!

  9. Darn right we can't blame her for being cautious. :) I liked watching their relationship change in Game On. I hope you don't break them up ever, in this series. :)
