From Holiday Heat by Noelle Adams
“Why is it so hot in December?” she wailed, forcing herself past a faintly tender pull at the sight of his sated eyes and relaxed body.
“Heat wave. Some sort of tropical front. It’s moving up the east coast, from—”
“Oh, shut up.”
Matt’s lips quirked at her grumpy tone, but he didn’t continue his discourse on the unseasonable December weather.
She shouldn’t enjoy his company so much. She shouldn’t like him. She certainly shouldn’t trust him with her body—or anything else.
There was no future with him. He’d told her the first night they met that a real relationship was impossible for him, and nothing about that had changed.
Being with him wasn’t anything like being with Henry. It didn’t feel safe and familiar, even after three months. She had no delusions about a future with Matt. She never would have had sex with him at all if there had been any possibility of a future.
“Next time, I’ll pick the hotel,” he said, his eyes resting on her with a gaze that was almost soft.
“No, I told you before. When you’re involved in a sleazy affair, then you pick a motel that’s appropriate for the occasion.”
He cocked an eyebrow, obviously amused. “Is that what we’re doing? Having a sleazy affair?”
“Neither one of us is married. I’m not sure ‘affair’ is the correct term.”
“Of course it is. You don’t have to be married to have an affair. It just needs to be secret.” No one knew that Carrie was regularly screwing Matthew Lynch, and she intended to keep it that way.
“I see.” He looked eminently unconvinced. And still amused. And definitely superior.
“Don’t be an ass.” When he opened his mouth to respond, she spoke over him. “You know exactly what ass-like behavior I’m referring to.”
Since that first night, they’d gotten together at least once a week for sex, although recently they’d been getting together more often.
Matt was her hot secret. Her shameless indulgence. Everyone thought she was quiet and withdrawn—keeping to herself, working in her coffee shop, never taking risks. No one would dream she’d have a casual affair with a gorgeous, notorious, wounded artist.
