Review

Okay so I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any of the previous stories with the Walker boys, so Curtis and Lorrie were new to me. BUT because this one was SOOO great I am looking forward to reading ALL of the other books! Such an amazing love story!

Nicole Edwards writes an awesome book that pulls you in and doesn’t let you go. There are so many emotions and you feel like your right there experiencing it all. Believe me, if you haven’t read about this family yet, you’re going to want to. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

Bonus Curtis Excerpt © Nicole Edwards 2016

 

Curtis reached for his wife—he fucking loved the sound of that—pulling her against him on the far side of the truck, shielded from anyone’s view.

He twisted their positions so that she was up against the truck, his body pressed to hers. Tilting her chin up, he stared down into her eyes, doing his best not to let his gaze drop to her mouth. “It’s okay to be nervous, darlin’, but we’re movin’ today.”

“I’m not nervous,” she retorted haughtily, reminding him of the first time she’d showed up on his front porch.

“Then what’re you worried about?” She looked away, but he kept his finger beneath her chin. “Look at me, Lorrie.”

Her eyes snapped back to his. “I’m not worried.”

“Good.” Not that he believed her. He leaned down and pressed a quick kiss to her lips before releasing her. “You ready?”

Lorrie glanced back at the house. “I should go say good-bye to everyone.”

When she started toward the house, he grabbed her around the waist, lifting her off her feet and carrying her to the driver’s side of the truck. “They’re less than a minute away. They don’t need you to say good-bye. Now scoot your cute little butt over so I can get in.”

She did as he instructed, giggling softly, but he saw the way her hands were shaking.

After starting the truck, he put it in first gear and headed toward the small, two- bedroom, one-bath guesthouse that had once been used by some of the ranch hands before the small bunk house was built.

As he’d mentioned, less than a minute later, he was parked in front of the house. He glanced over at Lorrie. “I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted after that long drive.”

She smacked his arm, this time laughing. The worry lines in her forehead finally smoothed out, but he doubted that would last for long.

“I’m gonna go in, get comfortable on the couch.” He climbed out and peered into the truck. “You just lemme know if you need help with any of this stuff.”

“Curtis Walker!” she huffed.

He laughed, then reached for her, pulling her out of the truck before tossing her over his shoulder and carrying her right into the house. She hadn’t yet seen all the work he’d done, so he wanted to see her reaction before he started bringing their stuff in.

Setting her on her feet, he then backed away from her. “What’d’ya think?”

Her eyes widened as she took it all in, then a small smile played on her lips. “It’s … not bad.”

“Not bad?” Curtis lunged for her, but Lorrie quickly evaded him, running into the kitchen and circling the table to get away from him. He nodded his head toward the stove. “You know how to use that thing, right?”

She glared at him, her cute little nose scrunching up.

“Kidding,” he said quickly, pretending to go one way, then turning and grabbing her when she started to run away.

Trapping her between the wall and his body, he took her hands and linked their fingers, raising them above her head as he crushed his mouth to hers. And though he’d expected her to be a little hesitant, he was not expecting her to panic the way that she did. The way her eyes widened, her whole body shaking and her breathing raspy, he knew he’d pushed too far.

And that was his first clue that this … a house of their own … might not have been a good idea.
