As promised, here's a second teaser of The Lover's Game. This is the non-edited version. Please excuse any errors.
“It’s over,” I whispered, more to myself than to him. “You can’t have me anymore. You can’t sleep with me anymore. In fact I’d rather you just left and never contacted me again.”
He let out an annoyed sigh and pushed his fingers through his dark hair just like the way I had done the previous night while he had me pinned to the floor. “The last time I checked we were still together.”
“Then I am ending things right now.” Another sharp pang of pain hit my chest. I turned my gaze to the shaggy rug beneath my feet so I wouldn’t have to see his expression. “Can you please leave now?”
As if sensing I needed space, he walked back to the open window and leaned against the wall, facing me.
“I’m not leaving until you tell me what’s going on.” His voice was calm but the dangerous undertones didn’t escape my attention. I looked up to him. His face was as hard as stone and his eyes shimmered with something I couldn’t pinpoint.
“You know damn right what’s going on.”
“Actually, I don’t.” He pulled his eyebrows together and let out an annoyed sigh. “Why don’t you enlighten me, Brooke?” His hard smile belied his anger.
My pulse began to race—but not from the physical attraction that was still palpable in the air. Jett was playing games again, and this time it was the clueless card, but I could see through his pretense. More so because I had seen it coming. The thought that he thought he could lie into my face, enraged me.
“Damn right, you do,” I said through gritted teeth, suppressing the wish to throw things at him. “I don’t trust you as far as I can spit.”
He inched closer and grabbed my hand. I drew back before he could pull me to him and his hard body could envelope me, soothing me the way only Jett knew how.
“Brooke.” Another annoyed sigh. “Can you please for one moment sit down and explain to me what’s going on? The last time you broke things off, you didn’t have a freaking choice. So forgive me for asking, but I’m confused.” His voice was hard, his expression detached. I had never seen his stunning green eyes devoid of warmth and it scared me. His attitude suggested that I was the enemy. As if I was the one who caused him pain.
“What is there to explain?” I started. “I know.”
“What do you know?” He sounded so sincere I laughed bitterly.
He wasn’t just a good liar. He was an excellent one who could have probably fooled any lie detector.
I shook my head as I stared him down. “I know everything, Jett.”
