(Forbidden Obsession, #1)
Publication date: September 7th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Gideon is a big bad wolf who doesn’t bother with sheep’s clothing, an overbearing jackass who hates our combined families as much as I do.
I shouldn’t secretly love his possessiveness over me at school.
I certainly shouldn’t enjoy the unwanted way my body reacts to him.
My sweet sixteen culminates in the first kiss that I always dreamed of. The nightmare that follows, however, leaves me cold and aching.
I go from wanting…to needing.
But Gideon is gone and I’m about to face the real threat to my innocence.
WARNING: Wanting is the first book in the Forbidden Obsession Duet and does not end happily ever after. It’s a forbidden romance that contains triggers and mature themes. Recommended for 18+.
Piercing blue eyes glanced down over the curves I’d inherited from Mother at too young of an age, but rather than feeling weirded out by Gideon’s good long look at me, warmth tingled into the tips of my breasts. Heat flooded his eyes when they met mine—but blinked out like a flashlight, his face becoming cold and hard.
And leaving me breathless. Shaky and unsettled in a way I didn’t know how to deal with.
“Sis,” he said, his tone as mocking as his slow smirk that fluttered my belly.
Proper poise, I could hear Mother’s echoing hiss from many times before between my ears.
I lifted my chin to do the same as he’d done to me, my narrowed gaze sliding down over his suit as though I found him lacking in every way—which I totally didn’t. Broad shoulders for seventeen, he could have been out felling trees. And that hair…those bedroom eyes, my best friend Jenny would say, could talk a girl into giving up her first kiss.
He stirred things inside me I didn’t understand, and I hated him for the curiosity tingling through my limbs and whispering in my mind.
“I’m not your sis,” I shot back with a huff and flounce of my hair.
