The sound of the drill startles me awake. For a minute, I’m not sure where I am. The noise is familiar. The same irritating sounds I’ve been hearing for weeks. Grumpy Lincoln never lets up on starting the job promptly at 8:00 a.m. According to Kyson, if I’d let him, Lincoln would be on the job at six like he usually is, but since I live above the jobsite and he found out I like my sleep, he moved the start time to eight.


A warm hand skates up my side, over my bare shoulder to my long hair. I close my eyes and breathe deeply, trying to remember what the hell I did and who I did it with.

My head is groggy, but I’ve never been one to get a true bellyaching, head-pounding kind of hangover. This morning is no exception. Usually, I don’t get so drunk that I forget who I bedded the night before. It’s happened, but only with men I’d been dating regularly. I’ve never taken home a one-night stand and forgotten what I was doing with the man.

Only last night, Evie and I were hanging out with Kyson and his brother at a sports bar. We got plastered and became cheerleaders, rooting for the home team and spouting off boos and hisses when the opposing team scored.

The owner of the warm hand covers my body with his and nudges his nose against my ear and neck, inhaling audibly. His lips touch down just behind my ear, and I sigh. He moves his arms and runs a hand around my middle, pressing a sizable erection against my bum.

“Good morning, sweets,” is said with a scruffy morning grumble I haven’t heard in ages.


Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh. My. God.

My entire body goes completely still. “Uh...what? Uh... Cam?” I’m at a complete loss for words as Cam rubs his impressive length against me in a stellar good morning hello that I would welcome willingly, if it were under different circumstances.

Camden rolls me onto my back, lifts up on a forearm and hovers over my torso. His hair is a wild mess of waves falling down around his face. He’s not wearing a shirt and I mentally assess my own body.

Do I have clothes on? Yes, a sports bra and yoga pants. Thank God.

Is he fully naked? Um...maybe. I’m too afraid to wrap my arms around all that is the man of my dreams and find out for myself.

Without realizing it, I start to tremble.

Cam pushes my hair off my shoulders and tunnels his hand at the side of my neck until he can cup my head. “Suda baby, you’re shaking like a leaf.”

“Did, uh...did we have sex last night?” I ask with a tremor in my voice that’s unmistakable.

He smiles, and that smile reaches his eyes and his entire face becomes so damned handsome I want nothing more than to wrap my arms around him and show him how very much that smile affects me.

“I know it’s been a long while for us, but if we’d had sex last night, babe, you’d know it.
