Author: J.P. Nicholas
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I broke his heart. Now I hope he doesn’t break mine back.
Darren Gracen looks even sexier than the day I left him. Oh, and let’s not forget that panty-dropping British accent. Just being around him again is bringing back all the sweet and sinful memories we shared together. Smelling his masculine scent in the same vicinity gets me high and makes my heart flutter.
But he’s not the same man I left behind. There’s a sad, mysterious gleam in his eye. Sure, it could be that he doesn’t trust me anymore. That’s understandable, considering the circumstances of our breakup. But I can’t help but feel that it’s more than that. Like he’s hiding something behind those brooding blue eyes of his.
No matter what it is, I can’t deny it…I still want him.

He shifts his gaze back to mine. “I’ve spent the last five years of my life trying to get over you. And honestly, I’m not sure I ever did. We were just kids back then. We are both older and wiser now. I owe it to myself to give this another go. If I don’t take this opportunity now, I have no doubt that I will regret it for the rest of my life. I never want to say what if. That’s no way to live. Even if this doesn’t work out and it all turns to shite, at least I can say I tried. What do you say, Alyssa? Want to toss caution to the wind and try with me?”
My head is still spinning from his confession. He’s never gotten over me. Did I damage him that much? If we are ever going to work, we need a fresh start. No past. Just the present. I open my mouth to tell him that when the sunlight reflects off something, blinding me.
I narrow my eyes to zone in on the culprit. I feel my heart squeeze in my chest when I spot the silver chain hanging around his neck. How did I not notice that before? Around the chain is a——no the——twenty pence coin. He is wearing my graduation present to him. The one I gave him the day I left.
Tears start to well in my eyes. I drop his hand, placing my hands on his leg. His breath hitches as I let them roam up his thigh, over his abs, and rest at his chest. I clutch the coin in one hand as I twirl the silver chain around the finger of the other.
“You still have this?” I ask, my voice sounds weak and frail as I fight back tears. He closes his eyes, dips his mouth to my forehead, and presses a kiss against it.
“I’ve never taken it off.” His words are muffled against my forehead, but I heard every word clear as day.
And with that one confession my walls are obliterated. I’m no longer thinking of all the reasons we should or shouldn’t be together. No, all my thoughts are consumed by how much I want this man. Right here. Right now.
About J.P. Nicolas:
J.P. Nicholas has the great misfortune to be A Male Romance Writer. Turns out, men are also hopeless romantics, given half the chance, and Nicholas’ fascination with love began long before he could write. His parents—high school sweethearts who are still mad for each other—left him enamored with the idea of true love, and its ability to transform and redeem even the most jaded soul. Nicholas lives to capture this magic, lust, and passion on the page; his characters known for their sizzling chemistry and chest-squeezing plot lines.
When J.P. Nicholas isn’t tapping away at his laptop, he can be found in his home state of Florida, binge-watching This Is Us with his girlfriend, or devouring Italian food with his family. His latest novel, Just Pretend, is a friends-to-lovers drama and the first in his new Sandy Heights series, to be released in June.
