Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can’t stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law student and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…
Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They’re too different to ever have a future together.
“If you want, next time can be on you.”
“Next time, huh?” Patrick barked out brief laugh. “You think me and you should have dinner again?”
Max shrugged. “Why not?”
“Why would you want to?” His expression twisted as if in confusion.
“Because of this.” Before Max could give himself another second to think about the consequences, he grabbed Patrick by the front of his shirt and sealed his lips over the other guy’s. The redhead’s breath hitched at the contact, his body tensing beneath Max’s fingers. Max tilted his head, opened his mouth, and deepened the kiss. Patrick responded, his hands cupping the back of Max’s head, holding him steady. Someone groaned, but he had no idea at the moment who. All he could think about was how good the guy kissed. He was perfection against Max’s mouth, his flesh.
Patrick jerked his head away, his fingertips biting into Max’s scalp. The sharp sting should’ve hurt. Instead, a sizzling arrow of pleasure shot straight to the head of his cock.
“Dammit,” Max moaned. “I want you.”
Groaning, Patrick’s hands slid from Max’s head and pushed him back. “We need to stop.”
What? Max shoved his fingers through his hair as if the action could somehow help his brain to make sense of what had just happened. “What’s wrong?”
Patrick rounded the front of his truck, shaking his head. “Everything about this—you and me—that’s what.” Patrick jerked his truck’s door open. “I gotta go.” He climbed inside and was gone before Max could form a coherent thought.
Shit… He slumped against the parking meter. He’d royally screwed up. Handled the moment all wrong.
