I know what you did last summer.
Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.
Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.
Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.
Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.
As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.
“Up until Aunt Lottie found me, yes. My mother wasn’t a very happy woman. I just thought if I was as good as I could be, she would love me. But it seemed that the harder I tried, the worse it got. I don’t think she wanted me.”
“I know how that feels.”
“Tell me the truth. After you burned that piano, you got upset, right?”
“At the risk of losing more macho points, let’s just say it wasn’t my most shining moment.”
“Don’t you know that a woman loves a man who can express what he’s feeling?”
“What Cosmo quiz did you get that out of, huckleberry?”
I brought my hand up and smoothed my fingers along the curve of her jaw. Truth was I was going all tender with this girl because she’d had a tough time, but she still seemed able to be optimistic. She might be a little uptight, and I decided she really did need someone like me to show her the lighter side of life. Humor was, after all, my armor of choice.
Her eyes met mine and we shared something elusive and mystical. It spun out of us in a heated, tangible, invisible arc from her gaze to mine. I got goose bumps.
I turned my head, rolling to my side, and opened my mouth over hers. She let out a soft gasp, which was perfect, and her hand came up to hold on to my waist.
She had the softest mouth, and I thought I could explore it for the rest of my life without ever getting enough. She cupped my face, her fingers touching me like she couldn’t feel me intensely enough, sliding into my hair and slipping over the back of my neck.
She melted into my arms, and I hadn’t expected how that hard pang to my heart would make me aware that this wasn’t the right time.
I tried to break the kiss, but she wrapped her arms around my neck and devoured my mouth with such fierceness that it went straight to my groin in a wave of pleasure so intense I groaned.
