The Wedding Contract by H.M. Ward

The Wedding Contract by H.M. Ward

After I finally get the evil witch at the front desk to hand me my room key, I head for the shower. I was supposed to shoot my best friend’s wedding alone, and I couldn’t wait to escape New York and Nick.

Yeah, he’s beautiful, sexy, and completely charming-but he’s stealing my clients. He’s done so much damage that I’m going to be lucky if I can keep my studio open for a few more weeks. This wedding means everything to me, and I refuse to let a spoiled brat and his shiny new MBA put me out of business. Screw that.

But then I find myself wearing nothing but a smile when the person I hate most walks through the door to my hotel room-Nick Ferro. Two adversaries, shooting one wedding, and sharing one room for one week-what could possibly go wrong?

Girls say I’m a walking, talking sex god.
Guys call me Hollywood because my life is golden.

It’s not.


But, ESPN did rank me as a four star recruit, calling me one of the best defensive players since Briarcrest Academy opened its esteemed doors. So yeah, with football and a stellar 

GPA, my future seemed good.



Then Dovey Beckham shows up in her short skirts and ballet shoes. Driving me insane. Making me want to beg for her attention.
But that wouldn’t happen, because Cuba Hudson didn’t beg for anything.


She walked around BA like she owned the place, and most days she looked right through me…the one girl I couldn’t have.


So, of course, I made it my mission to claim her, to put her notch on my bedpost.


Because no girl can resist the Heartbreaker of BA.


But I never planned on destroying her.


I never planned on wrecking the one thing that could save me.


Welcome to Briarcrest Academy, where wicked love begins…and ends.


 

 

“Two things about me: I play football—and girls.” –Cuba Hudson

I wanted the gorgeous girl in the window.

More specifically, I wanted the dark-haired girl dancing inside the Symthe Arts Building as I stood outside on the twenty yard line at football practice, fixated on her when I should have been focused on the line of scrimmage. I adjusted my helmet and squinted through the afternoon Dallas sun.

Did I know her?

Movement from other players on the field pulled me back. Good thing. As defensive end, it was my job to put the screws to or sack the quarterback as soon as the ball snapped. But I was off today. Probably because I knew I had a shit ton of homework waiting for me at home. With my dream of being a doctor and getting into a good school, being on top of my game in class was important as well. Briarcrest Academy was one of the top-rated private schools in the country, making expectations here high.

Just like every eighteen-year-old kid out there, I had stresses.

But I did have more than the average. I had a sick mom.

But those thoughts faded when I looked back at the window and watched the girl run and then leap in the air, her body doing some kind of crazy in-the-air-leg-split-thing. Damn. She’d gotten at least four feet off the ground.

Then, after landing on her feet light as a feather, she danced away from my view. I waited for her to come back, wanting to check out her toned muscles again, especially her tight ass. And then I randomly wondered if her tits were small. Weren’t all dancers? Yeah. But still, she looked—

“Pay attention, Hudson!” Coach Howe yelled at me.

Fuck. Caught.

I automatically stiffened and tightened my defensive stance, running my eyes across the offensive line, waiting for the play. But the quarterback was pussy-footing around still undecided if they were gonna run or pass. Whatever. Matt the Quarterback was a complete jack ass. I ate guys like him for lunch which wasn’t hard when you’re tall and fast like me.

I got bored.

Out of my peripheral vision, I caught a flash of pink dashing past the window.

She was back.

And like I was addicted to her, my eyes drifted to the building again, one part baffled by the fascination, the other part wanting to get another glimpse of her long legs. As I watched, she adjusted her ponytail as she laughed up at her ballet partner—who was a dude. Crazzzy. Yeah, you’d think he’d be all feminine and shit, but he wasn’t. Nope. Dude looked buff, like he could bench press a school bus.

Something about the girl called to me. Yeah, it was probably that short skirt she wore. I pictured slipping my hand underneath it to her panties. Her core would be hot, on fire for me, of course, and I’d ease my finger inside her wet—

Bam!  I took a hard hit from Tank Carson, an All District offensive guard I routinely ran circles around in practice. He might be big, but I was quick and smart and had more moves than a freaking octopus. So the chance to plant my distracted ass on the turf was an early Christmas present for him. That’s what I get for letting some piece of ass get in my game, even if it was practice.

And so. My unprepared body flew through the air with 290 pounds of Tank on top of it. My head followed my body and hit the turf, the contact reverberating inside my helmet and then everything went black…

Tour & Giveaway: Vision of Love by S. Moose

Vision FINAL - ebook

 

You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help.

When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn’t want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she’d ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma’s nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl’s life. Did I do the right thing?

As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed.

Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?

“You’re mine tonight so make sure you stay by my side,” I whisper in her ear. My hands hold onto her hips as we dance. Damn she can dance. She takes the lead, helping me move with her.
The music is loud with the bass bumping against the speakers causing the crowd to go wild. The atmosphere is screaming fun and sex.
The music changes to ‘Hold It Against Me’ by Brittany Spears. The alcohol finally kicks in. My hands go on a mission and find the spot they want. “Fuck baby! No panties tonight?”
A seductive smile comes on her face. “Just. For. You.” I let out a growl and push my fingers inside her.
“Baby you’re so fucking wet.”
“I’m always wet when it comes to you.” She bites down on my shoulder whispering for more. I feel her body shudder against mine. Karly pulls down her dress and guides me off the dance floor towards the bathroom. Yes!
