(From Goodreads) Morgan Lane has just completed grad school, and has accepted a job at Baylor Industries with the help of her father, who just so happens to be golf buddies with Drake Baylor Sr., CEO. Morgan has lived her 24 years of life under her parents thumbs, and is more than eager to start living life and carving successful career for herself.
Drake Baylor Jr. is being groomed to take over as CEO of Baylor Industries upon his father’s retirement. Although he was raised in an affluent household, his formative years were rough, leading to a string of bad decisions, and hard lived years. In order to take over as CEO, his father has given him a set of rules to live by for an indefinite period of time: No drugs, limited alcohol consumption, and absolutely no relationships whatsoever with women-his greatest weakness. If Drake can abstain from those three things, work hard, and gain his father’s trust, he can have the keys to the Kingdome.Drake meets Morgan on her first day at Baylor Industries, and the phrase “love at first sight” doesn’t even come close to describing what is felt between them. Their instant attraction is a magnetic pull that is stronger than either one of them can handle. Now Drake and Morgan are faced with figuring out how to fight for their future together, hoping not to get caught “Breaking the Rules”.
A slow song has just begun, and I am about to make my leave and grab a cold beer from the bar when a warm body presses against my back, and a pair of masculine arms wrap around my waist. I am about to gracefully twist out of the unwanted embrace to go get the much needed cold beer, when I get an all too familiar whiff of a certain deliciously broad shouldered man. A quick glance at his hands confirms that it is Drake’s arms I am in. Thank the gin-soaked heavens, I feel like my prayers have been answered. All I could think of all week is what it would feel like to have Drake’s arms wrapped around me. It had taken all of my willpower not to go over to his table earlier and say hello. I knew I needed to stay away and forget about the strong feelings I had already developed for him. He is so close now. I can feel his breath on my shoulders as I lean my head back into his chest. No words are uttered as I reach up and wrap my arms behind me and around his neck. His hands make their way down to my hips, squeezing them and guiding them back and forth to the slow beat. I feel his arousal press into my lower back, and I drop my hands down to cover his at my waist and pull him closer to me. As the song progresses, the growing heat and attraction between us becomes palpable. Thank God one slow song has faded into another because I was not ready let this moment end. Words have still not been uttered, but unspoken passion definitely has, when Drake gently brushes my hair to the side and begins to slowly kiss my shoulder, moving slowly and deliberately up my neck before he starts nibbling on my earlobe. I moan softly as I feel my body ignite under the soft touch of his lips. I want to feel those lips all over my body. I spin around in his embrace, wanting so badly to have those lips on mine as our eyes meet. I tremble slightly in his arms as I take in his beauty at close range. My God, he is so beautiful. I am in his arms, staring into his eyes, doing my damnedest to stay on my feet. One of Drake’s arms tightens his grasp on my waist holding me close as the other hand lifts my chin slightly. My eyes close and my lips part as Drake leans in close, his lips almost touching mine.About the Author
