Being a cop, I didn’t have any choice, but I really wish I hadn’t got mixed up in this case. My dark past is catching up to me ever since he barreled into my life without a care. It terrifies me that he sees right through me. He could be the one to save me . . . or break me.
It was just a job. Until it wasn’t. By then the sexy little redhead had her claws in me. Now, she’s in my life and I’m lost. How am I supposed to keep the demons from her past from eating her alive? I don’t know, but I will do whatever it takes to make her mine.
I didn't know what I was going to do. I had nothing to wear on a date, and even though Twitch had left to give me an opportunity to get ready, I was freaking out.
One final search of my suitcase came up with something interesting. The red leather mini-skirt I took with me when I was posing undercover as Trixie was shoved in one of the side pockets. I figured it was the best that I could come up with on short notice, so I did the best with what I had.
I grabbed one of my white dress shirts and rolled the sleeves up to my elbows and left the top three buttons undone so it would show just enough cleavage. I teased my hair and applied a smoky eye.
“Tasha? You ready?” Twitch asked from the other room.
I looked down at myself, applied a bit of lip gloss and left the room.
The look on his face when I walked out in my thrown together outfit could only be described as hungry. I looked him up and down in his black polo shirt with his black leather jacket over the top of his broad shoulders.
His dark hair was artfully messed up and his dark stone washed jeans hugged his hips. I probably had the same hungry look on my face as he did, and he leisurely perused my body with his eyes. When his eyes finally looked up to meet mine, he groaned.
“God darlin’, if you don't quit looking at me like that we're not gonna make it to dinner,” he groaned again.
I smiled coyly and turned to get my purse.
“You promised me dinner, Dylan,” I purred as I walked toward him.
“Say it again.”
“Dylan?” I whispered huskily.
He grabbed me by my hips and crushed his lips to mine. I moaned and he took advantage of my open mouth to deepen the kiss. He attacked my mouth with such ferocity I couldn't breathe. I needed to feel him. I slid my hands up his chest, beneath his jacket, and let it slide off his shoulders on to the floor.
Grabbing his hair in both hands, I pulled him closer until not a breath of space was between our bodies. He rotated his hips and I moaned when his erection brushed my stomach. I slid my hands back down his chest and slid my hands under his shirt until I could feel the planes of his rock hard abs against my fingers.
He ripped his mouth from mine and in one swift motion, pulled his shirt over his head, and I was dumbstruck by his chiseled chest. His body was God-like in its magnificence. He grabbed me by the back of the neck and hauled my lips to his as the fingers of his other hand trailed the skin at my midriff. I shuddered and he began slowly unbuttoning my top as his lips trailed to my ear, nipping it gently.
He walked me backwards, kissing and licking down the column of my neck. I hit the wall and he lifted me so I could wrap my legs around his hips. He thrust his hips into mine and moaned, “God you're beautiful.”
At this point all the buttons on my shirt were undone and he was running his tongue along the top of my bra. He reached down and undid the front clasp with expert fingers. The shirt and bra fell to the floor at the same time, and before I knew it, he had one nipple in his mouth and he was pinching the other between his fingers.
“Dylan.” My cries seemed to spur him on.
With my skirt being hiked up around my hips, he had easy access into my panties. His long fingers found my opening and he thrust inside. I cried out his name again. The low rumbling growl that came from his throat vibrated against my nipple, and I nearly came on the spot.
“Oh God Dylan. I'm gonna come!” I yelled and he added another finger thrusting harder.
He moved his mouth from one nipple to the other and sucked, hard. I shrieked. Fireworks danced before my eyes as I came on a strangled moan.
I could feel him smile against my nipple as I started to come down off the peak, but he wasn't done with me yet.
“God, you're sexy when you come.” He growled and thrust his hips against my still pulsing core.

Thank you so much for joining us today! Please introduce yourself! Tell us who you are and what you do!
Are you the main character in the story or a supporting role?
What do you do for a living? How old are you?
Tell us about your story.
What is it about and what role do you play?
Hi! I’m Dylan Spaulding AKA Twitch and I work for GTT Security. I was sent to help the LAPD and the breathtakingly beautiful Tasha bring that idiot Brendan in for kidnapping his own kids. I never would have guessed that I would fall so hard for her fiery spirit and take charge attitude. I learn somethings about her in the process that make me not only love her but need to protect her.
Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?
I’m pretty average in appearance nothing to striking about me. I do have a tendancy to look around a lot and watch everyone else's back. That's why they call me Twitch. I'm always ready for trouble.
Do you have any birthmarks or tattoos?
I do have a tattoo on my biceps but you will have to read the book to find out what it is.
Would you ever want to go hang out with your author?
If so, what would you do together? Ember?
Nah, not really. I think I will leave that up to the girls they can all do girly crap together or whatever.
If you could have a super power what would it be, and why?
I think super speed would be the best there are a couple times in my life where that particular super power would have been useful. I may have been able to save some lives if I had just been fast enough.
What is your biggest pet peeve when dealing with others?
I hate people who hurt women and children they are definitely the scum of the earth.
What would I love the most about you?
My awesome body, obviously! *chuckles* no really I'm loyal to a fault and once I care about someone I do everything in my power to protect them.
What would I hate the most about you?
It might be the fact that I still subscribe to the idea that women should be cherished and protected. Marcy and Tasha have both gotten all over me on more than one occasion because I mentioned trying to protect them, Kaylee too.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
To an extent I guess. I think she made it seem like I was a lot more arrogant and conceited then I actually am but whatever. I know I am awesome and that's exactly how she portrayed me, so it's all good. *chuckles*
What is your idea of a perfect day?
Staying in bed with Tasha all day and blocking out the rest of the world. We would only come out to order food and then eat it in bed naked all day!
What is your greatest fear?
Losing Tasha. Failing her is my biggest damn fear in the world. I can't imagine what my life would become if I lost her. I would cease to exist.
Someone is secretly in love with you.
Who is it and how do you feel about that?
Ha! Tasha told me about this question and just let me say that no matter who thought they were in love with me wouldn't matter because the only person that I will ever love is Tasha. (Did I lay it on thick enough because I don't want Tasha to kick my ass later for giving the wrong answer.) *snickers*
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little I wanted to be just like my dad. He was a great man and a federal prosecutor in Baltimore. The man was everything to me. He died along with my mom when I was twelve years old. After that nothing mattered but surviving and as soon as the foster-care system spit me out, I joined the Army.
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would do today?
Stay in bed with Tasha all day. *chuckles* No I would tell my family that I loved them and spend time with the three greatest kids in the world, Leanne, Lance and Trey’s son Mikey.
What is the one food you can’t live without? I am a total grilled cheese junkie. My mom used to make the best grilled cheese sandwiches when I was a kid and I could eat them all day everyday.
If they turned the book into a movie, who would be cast to play you?
I would want someone who is a badass to play me, but I think Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum would be the best because they have killer bodies just like me. See? I told you I wasn't as conceited as she made me out to be. *Laughs*
