Layla Brooks is a small town girl with a big spirited heart, especially when it comes to her twin sister, Lucy. She will rest at nothing to protect her from a casino mogul’s henchman bent on collecting a debt… even if that includes taking her sister’s punishment. But a strange suited man from out of the shadows isn’t about to let that happen.
Oliver and Layla’s opposite worlds collide with a Bam! But are either of them ready for the lies, truth and lust that comes along with a relationship born of shock? Or will their love come and go as fast as a bolt of lightning?
1) Drunk on her pheromones, Oliver couldn’t let Layla go quite yet and caressed her cheek with his knuckles. “I was hoping to feel your lips on mine.”
2) Layla recalled the way Oliver had said he was, ‘someone who knew better than to hit a lady,’ in the alley. She’d laughed at his gallant comment then, but she now suspected he truly meant it. His character on the television in front of her was kissing the princess on the show. His lips slid and captured the actress’, melding them together as believable as a true couple in love. Layla leaned her head on top of Lucy’s. “Maybe he is out there somewhere.”
3) It was Oliver’s accent. His phraseology was still British but his accent was muddled with American English.
“Were you filming dialogue today by any chance?”
He offered her a coffee cup with a smoldering stare. “Don’t worry. You’ll have your roguish Brit back in no time.” The way he’d focused every word, drawing out the vowels, elongating them in that sexy English way brought a wave of unadulterated heat from Layla’s hairline to her candy-apple red toenails. She gulped, forcing herself to breathe.
