BLURB:Aiden Dwyer, a Queens construction worker, doesn’t know a salad fork from a dessert fork, unlike his best friend from college, Sebastian Parker, a privileged son from a blue-blooded Manhattan family who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Seb’s always got Aiden’s back. The same can’t be said for Seb’s little sister, Bea, who finds pleasure in mocking Aiden for his lack of social standing. A permanent fixture in New York City gossip columns, Beatrice (Bea) Parker is known as “The Park Avenue Princess.” But nobody knows that the pillar of young Manhattan society has an alter-ego on an online dating site for “discreet singles.” Lying dormant under all of their jokes and teasing is Aiden and Bea’s unrequited desire for each other. When he discovers Bea’s greatest secret, Aiden risks his friendship with Sebastian to fulfill her fantasies and make his hunger for her a reality. Warning: This epistolary novel contains flirtatious banter, double entendres, interfering parents, a heroine who leads a secret life, and a hero who could have everything he ever wanted if he plays his cards right.
Without warning, Aiden steps closer to me, taking me by the shoulders. “You have a choice, Buzzy. And that choice is me. I know I’m not what your parents want for you. I live in Queens, I’m not rich, and I have dirt under my fingernails. And it’s definitely complicated because your brother is my best friend. But I know you. I know your favorite drink, I know you hate spinach, I know you like to go to Serendipity during the holidays with Seb because it’s tradition. And despite the way we’ve been with each other all these years, throwing insults and barbs back and forth like some fucked-up verbal tennis match, I know you care for me. Last night proved it. I want you, and I know you want me.”
I stare helplessly into his eyes, now softer and mirrored with concern.
I do want you, Aiden. More than you’ll ever know.
“Even if that were true,” I manage, despite my heart catching in my throat, “I have to do this for my family and our reputation. Our society circle—”
His strong hands fall from my shoulders, his eyes fiery again. “Don’t even start with the family image excuse,” he hisses. “That is bullshit and you know it.”
I take a deep breath. “No, it’s not, Aiden. My family has a reputation to uphold, and we can’t lose the magazine. We need the Thorne money. That’s the reality.”
I glare at him as he stays silent.
Good. He finally gets it.
Before I know what’s happening, he takes my face in his hands, clamping his mouth over mine. My eyes widen from the shock, my hands gripping his shoulders to steady myself from the force of his lips taking mine.
I don’t hesitate. My mouth opens to accept his hot tongue. We kiss each other hard and deep, nothing soft or gentle. Quick breaths exhale from our noses. My whimpers and his grunts echo off the walls in my bedroom. I fist his jacket, desperate to take him deeper, further. His hands travel down my back, holding me tighter against him.
Oh God, I want him. I want him so much.
But I can’t…
I push as hard as I can against his broad shoulders, releasing my mouth from his. “That will never happen again,” I declare determinedly.
He grins slyly back at me. “Fuck yes, it will.”
