As you all know, Westmore: Second Chances has finally been released.
I promised to share an excerpt from the book so without further ado, here’s a sneak peek at what’s happening in the latest Westmore installment.
With her arms wrapped around a pillow, Alicia curled up on her side. The touch of a man’s hand on her hip interrupted her peaceful slumber. Startled she jumped; swinging her fists she managed to hit the man in the chest before he grabbed her arms. She tried to wiggle free, but he had a strong hold on her.
“Calm down, Alicia.” A male voice responded.
Alicia’s body fell limp at the voice, one she recognized. “Wayne, is that you?” He released her. “What the hell are you doing here? How did you get in?”
“I needed to see you.”
“So you broke into my house?” She threw her hands in the air. “You really are crazy. My stepdad’s a cop, he’ll arrest you.”
“I know it’s risky, but I couldn’t resist.”
“You need to leave; my mom or Jim could see you. Then you’ll be in trouble.” She cracked open the door to make sure nobody was awake.
“I don’t care.”
Exasperated, she shut the door. “Wayne, please go.”
“No,” he said in a firm tone.
“Please, I’m worried about you. If anybody finds out you’re here…”
The more he refused, the furious Alicia became. I can see stubbornness also runs in the Braxton family.
“Alicia, both you and I know you don’t want me to leave.” His fingers caressed her cheek, her smooth skin felt good to him.
Her body became weak at his touch. “Wayne, please.”
“Do you really want me to leave?” He put his finger on her lips as she opened her mouth. “Don’t answer yet.”
Pulling her closer, his left hand rested on her back as his other cupped her head. He took a moment to appreciate her beauty, everything about Alicia captivated him. Not wanting to wait another second longer, he pressed his lips against hers. She resisted at first, then she slowly came into the kiss. Parting her lips, she let his tongue explore her mouth. She wrapped her arms around his shoulders as he deepened the kiss.
He scooped her up in his arms and carried her to the bed. Gently he laid her on the covers. He pulled away; gazing down at her. Both of them were breathless from the kiss. “Do you still want me to leave?”
“No,” she whispered before pulling him down on her. His hands made their way under her tank top; Alicia closed her eyes and moaned. She didn’t want this to end.
Second chances are hard to come by. But when they occur, you have to grab the opportunity and prove your worth.
