Check out this lovely cover for Truth or Dare by A.J. Bennett! This book sounds like it's going to be amazing!
Luna Alexander has always been a 'free spirit' and lived by her own rules, consequences be damned. With the approach of an anniversary she'd rather forget, Luna starts to wonder if there's more to life than partying and hooking up with hot guys.
A chance meeting with a dark knight knocks her off kilter and has her emotions spinning out of control.
Will she finally overcome her past for a chance at happiness, or will she hide behind the walls she's built around her?
Feast your eyes on not one, but TWO excerpts!
To her surprise, he strode over to her table, reaching her in several long strides. She couldn’t take her eyes off his tall powerful body.
“Didn’t I already tell you once to buzz off?” Luna glared at him.
Rather than getting pissed off, he seemed amused. The smug look on his face irritated her. Even if it was a face that looked as though it was a masterpiece carved in stone. She noticed a jagged scar above his left eyebrow. It only added to his perfection. He draped his arm across the chair next to her. His causal posture only ticked her off more. He could act a little bit apprehensive.
His cool gaze dropped from her eyes to her mouth, she saw his lips twitch and she wondered what he was thinking. Of course he didn’t stop there, his gaze continued downward and blatantly stared at the tops of her breast that skimmed over her tank top.
“Like what you see?”
He glanced up, his eyes locking on hers. “Me and every other asshole in this bar with a pulse.”
Luna shrugged. Guys liked chicks, period. She wasn’t the only one in the bar and most of the jackasses could care less which one they took home. She doubted anyone in the joint was looking for a life partner. Why did she allow herself to get inebriated? She couldn’t even think of a smartass comeback.
“Do you have a ride home?”
“Yep. What are you like a black knight in shining armor?”
Another half-smile tugged at the corner of his mouth. Apparently, it would kill him to give a full blown smile.
“I don’t rate a white knight?”
Luna shook her head. “Nope, you’re like me. All darkness.”
Her body ached with an irrational need to have him close to her. She noticed several faint silver scars across his back. How had he gotten those? The memory of his reaction to the scar on his stomach stopped her from asking.
Hunter wasn’t prepared to share anything with her other than his body. Understandable, she wasn’t exactly the type to bare her soul either.
She was startled by the realization that she would like to know what secrets he kept hidden underneath his hard exterior. Usually, she could care less about the men she got involved with. But she was intrigued to know what made him tick. What experiences in his past made him who he was today?
On that note, Luna kicked the sheets off her and swung her feet over the bed.
“I guess it’s time forme to get home.”
“Stay the night with me,” he said gruffly without turning.
Thankfully she still had a sane corner in her mind. She shook her head. “I can’t. I have to work in the morning.”
“Call in sick.”
Luna laughed. Why did he have to be so freakin’ gorgeous. It was hard to say no, but she had to remain strong. “I don’t have that luxury.”
He nodded and moved towards her. Reaching down he drew her up, towering over her. “Alright, but I want to see you tomorrow.”
They stared at each other for so long she was beginning to feel uncomfortable. The air between them seemed to thicken making it hard to breath. She knew things were moving too fast, but couldn’t seem to find the words to protest. His fingers closed around the back of her neck and his thumb stroked her collar bone. The tips of her naked breast grazed his firm chest.
“You’re making it hard to leave.”
“Tell me you’ll see me tomorrow.” He cupped her face and gave her a brief, but thorough kiss.
She swallowed visibly and nodded, dropping her head onto his chest moving into the embrace. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Maybe she was reading too much into it. Imagining, he sounded almost desperate to see her again. Why couldn’t she shut off that cynical voice in her head and just enjoy the moment?
