Publication Date: November 24, 2014
***Mistake is book four in the Breaking the Rules series, but can be read as a standalone.***
Opal Redding has led a life full of mistakes. She left home at an early age to pursue a dream and follow her sister to the big city. Unfortunately, that dream turned into a nightmare when she landed in the clutches of the evilest and vilest of men.
Luckily, she escaped.
Now, four years later, Opal has buckled down and focused on never making mistakes that hurt her or those around her ever again. She went after her college degree and the sexy investment banker, Trent Sutton.
For four long years, she cultivated their friendship in hopes of, one day, running off into the sunset with her prince.
As graduation nears, Trent finally notices her as a desirable woman and not just a friend. All of her hard work is finally paying off. The white picket fence and two point five kids are within her grasp.
Until she meets him.
Thad Sutton lives in the shadow of his brother. Fresh out of rehab with a hopeful outlook on life, Thad meets Opal and is drawn to her more than any drug ever could. But is she toxic to his recovery?
When Opal is faced with a decision between two brothers, the right choice and the awful choice, she finds her resolve to have a perfect life begin to falter.
Will she choose the right path? Or will she make the biggest mistake of her life?
The way she tastes has been seared into my memory. I take my time exploring her mouth with mine. Knowing that, if I don’t quit now, I’ll only want more, I decide to break away from our kiss. She surprises me, though. When her delicate hands grasp each side of my face along my jaw, she pulls me closer. This time, she eagerly meets my tongue with hers. Her moan is soft and telling—telling me that she wants me as badly as I want her. Finally, she wrenches away from me, panting, and begins to pace the room nervously.
“Thad, what are you doing here?”
“I told you I came to see you, but clearly, you were expecting someone else.” I sound like a fucking pussy, but I’m hurt that she’s not all dolled up for me. If I weren’t worried about ruining her perfect living room, I’d plant a fist right through the wall—I know exactly who she’s all dressed up for.
Last night meant nothing to her.
Her lips form a pout and I can see that she feels guilty. But when her eyes glance over at the front door and then back over at me, I know I’ve lost.
“Thad,” she frowns. She doesn’t have to say the words. I already know.
“Have fun with Trent. It looks like he’s taking you somewhere special,” I mutter angrily. Then I stalk toward the door, eager to get away from her blatant rejection.
With my hand on the doorknob, I turn to regard her with a questioning look. Her eyes are brimming with tears.
“I’m sorry. In another life, Thad. I just can’t.”
I shake my head in disappointment as I open the door. “Tell me, Opal. Can’t or won’t?”
She bites her lip but doesn’t make a move toward me. Her choice is made.
“There is something there and you goddamn know it.” I pause a moment before snapping out the last of my piece. “And you’ll realize it when you’re with Trent but thinking about me.”
