Book Hooks is a weekly me the hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance each week for authors to share current WIPs or samples of previously published work. This week I’m sharing a snippet of Sweeter Than This.
Elle rose up from the bed, aiming the nose of her weapon at her intruder.“W-what in the hell are you doing here?”
“Are you going to shoot me?”
“You broke into my apartment,” she yelled, kneeling on the bed.
“So, is that a yes?” Despite a GLOCK being aimed at his head, a smile tugged at Durant Kane’s lips.
Damn, he’d missed this.
Seeing her earlier had only heightened the white-hot need he felt when around her. He wasn’t sure how he’d gotten this far without doing so.
A stranger looms in the shadows out for blood, and Officer Elle Taylor is running out of time and people to trust. Will Elle risk crossing the line between attraction and revenge to take help from an unexpected source, before the murderer strikes again and leaves her life in flames?
Durant Kane is no stranger to trouble, especially the kind that comes with a gun trained on his face and an angry woman attached. But Elle’s something different, something unexpected and sweeter. He never could have imagined coming to feel so deeply about her, even if his own disastrous path in relationships hadn’t left him so wary. But he’ll have to take the risk if he doesn’t want to lose the woman he’s come to realize he can’t even think of living without.
