Publication Date: January 5, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
SamanthaI moved to Ireland for a year to film the movie that would change my life. What I didn’t expect, was that dark and dangerous Brennan Murphy would throw my very calculated existence into chaos. I had worked too hard to bury my secrets and it would take a lot more than heated words and scorching looks to get me to give into the temptation of throwing it all away for him.
Brennan How can I want a woman so bad when she represents everything I despise? I can’t get her out from under my skin and I’m not entirely sure I want to. But there’s more at stake here than meets the eye. I’ve got responsibilities and she’s got secrets. Together, we’re destined for disaster, but I’m willing to risk it all for her, the problem is, I don't know if she’s willing to risk anything for me.
*NOTE* While Worlds Apart can be read as a standalone, it is book #3 in The Sisters series.
“You just threw up on me.”
“Yes, I heard you. You told me so and it’s Brennan.” He shot out of the room in search of what I could only assume was a towel. I lay back in bed, took a swig of the water I kept on the bedside table to wash down the nasty taste and gave myself a mental pat on the back. Brennan. Hmm, it was a cool name, not that I would ever admit that to him.
I heard him ranting and muttering to himself down the hall, but couldn’t quite make out what he was saying. Probably for the best. He came back into the room and I turned to see just how mad he was when my eyeballs nearly popped out of my eyes.
“You’re not wearing any pants!”
“How very astute of you.”
“Why are you not wearing any pants? What if we still have an intruder?” My eyes were very, very confused. They were at a crossroads. Look, don’t look. Gah, it was inevitable. They looked.
“’Cause you puked on them. And it’s pretty obvious we don’t have an intruder, and if we did, he’d be running from you, that’s for damn sure. Got any more amazing questions, Barbara Walters?”
My brain wasn’t computing anything he said. It was stuck back at that crossroads with my eyes. Tight, white boxer briefs. God’s gift to women everywhere, and today was my special day to receive the gift.
He walked around my bed and disappeared into the ensuite bathroom. I heard the taps running and gave my head a good shake. I hated this man. My brain told me not to worry. Hating him was still possible even while ogling. Shit, ogling commenced yet again as he walked by back out of my bedroom going who knew where. I closed my eyes and tried to figure out how my day had gone so very bad. While in this meditative state, I felt the bed dip and the covers pull back. Apparently, we were having a sleepover.
“What the fuck are you doing?”
“Sleeping until my pants are dry.”
“Get the hell out of my bed and out of my house.”
