“Let. Me. Go.”
His fingers slid along the backs of my hands and curled around my wrists. I fought as he raised my arms and pinned them to the wood paneled wall above my head.
“Not until I’m good and ready. And I can’t be sure I’ll ever be ready.”
My nipples hardened in response to his cocky declaration. I squeezed my eyes shut for a moment, hoping naively that the move would block out the effects of his words and touch. It didn’t.
“So what do you say, Vanessa? You willing to give me a shot?”
I swallowed, and my heart hammered a staccato rhythm in my chest. Pressed so tightly against me, there was no way Con could miss it.
Fixing my eyes on his, I decided that being on the defensive wasn’t going to gain me any ground. So I asked the question burning on my tongue.
“Why?” I asked. “Why would you want a chance with me? You don’t even like me.”
His lips quirked up into a sardonic smile. “I don’t really remember if I like you or not.”
I glared at him. “You’re a pig, you know that?”
The smile faded, and a hard look settled over his features. My attention cut to the door. Con didn’t miss it.
“Oh, no, princess. I told you—you ain’t going anywhere until I’m ready to let you go.” He leaned in until I could feel his breath against my temple as he added, “And I wasn’t joking when I said I might never be ready.”
I refused to look up, knowing that his expression would be smoldering, promising me things I couldn’t have.
