I'm giving you another sneak peek of book 4 in The House of BeJeweled series. I know that there is a lot of time between book releases, and many of my readers message me to let me know they're still waiting. I appreciate your patience, and thank you for your support.
BeJeweled started off as one novel, extremely thick with just a few of the characters' stories told. After sharing it with another author, I was encouraged to turn it into a series. This series has evolved over the last two years with everyone telling their version of the story.
I have fleshed the characters out to draw you in, infuriate you, inspire you, and fascinate you. This has been a wonderful journey to share with you, and as we near bringing it to a close, I hope that I have taken your emotions on a rollercoaster ride, one page at a time.
Angel is back, and in some ways she's grown, but in other ways she's still holding on to the past. She's a woman torn between two loves.
“Where’s your little man tonight?” Alex asked.
Angel had agreed to go out on a date with him. She had missed spending time with him and had begun to rethink her decision of placing their relationship on the back burner.
“He’s spending time with my mom. She wanted him for the evening, so I decided it was time for some grown up fun,” Angel explained.
“I’m just glad you remembered me, Angel,” Alex said, grabbing her hand. “I don’t know what you were doing to me up in that club. I was about to go crazy. You dancing and shaking all over the place and smiling at me, it’s only so much teasing a man can take.”
“Is that what you think, Alex? That I was teasing you?”
“Sure as hell felt like it.”
“Well, I’m sorry. I wasn’t teasing you, I was enjoying your company like I always do. And yeah, I felt whatever was going on up in there tonight, too,” Angel confided.
She had called Alex up the day Kianna showed up at the hospital to visit Black. They had started talking on the phone again every day, but they hadn’t seen each other in a while.
His invite to go out tonight to have fun was just what she knew she needed. Club Blue was the same club they had gone to when they first acknowledged their attraction to one another. It was no coincidence that they had gone there after her and Black’s initial separation, and again tonight after she had mentally separated from Black.
“Just tonight?” Alex asked.
“No. I won’t lie to you, Alex. I have always had feelings for you. But I know I brought a lot of baggage into the relationship. I never meant to do that. I told you in the beginning I wasn’t ready for a relationship, I just needed a friend. You pressed the issue. And when all this jumped off with Black, I needed some time to sort out my feelings,” she confessed.
Alex released her hand, and pulled her closer to him on the couch. He had begged her to come back to his apartment. He had simply wanted to discuss where they went from there and nothing more, according to him. But now it seemed as if it was progressing further than that.
Caressing the side of her face, Alex kissed her closed eyelids and made his way down to the tip of her nose before landing his lips on hers. She slowly opened her mouth allowing his tongue to enter. The strong taste of vodka from the Club’s signature drink, Blue Russian, flavored his tongue and mixed nicely with the sweet and tangy taste left in her mouth by the amaretto sour.
Angel placed a manicured hand up to his face and softly stroked it. Getting lost in the kiss, she felt her breath racing. She had not had true desire for anyone in a long time. Not desire just to hold on to him, but actually wanting to be with someone and giving all of her to him.
Alex was the first to break the kiss and left Angel wanting more. He picked up a remote and pressed a series of buttons, before the room filled with Bootsy Collins’ I’d Rather Be With You.
“Are you ready for this?” he asked, his heavy-lidded, sexually intense green eyes filled with desire.
“Mm-hmm,” she murmured.
