We are thrilled to bring you an exclusive excerpt from JUST HUMAN! We had the pleasure of reading an advance copy and cannot wait for you to fall in love with Danny and Liv and their steamy and heart-gripping story!
Meet Liv and Danny…
Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her, so she lets him go without a fight when his parents make him move back to America. She knows she will never love anyone like she loved him, but she has to move on.
Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him, because she does nothing to get him to stay, so he goes quietly when his parents leave the UK. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her, but he has to move on.
Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there.
They quickly find that they are intensely compatible in ways they hadn’t even begun to explore before they were forced apart.
Can they put aside their fears and give it a go? Or will deep rooted doubts and insecurities tear them apart?
“I’ve got another trick like that. I’ll show you sometime,” she says with a wicked smile.
“Hmmm.” I turn onto my front so that our faces are almost touching. “I can’t wait.”
“I have to move,” she sighs, not moving at all.
I watch her, having an internal battle, then reluctantly, she drags herself up and disappears to the bathroom. I grin to myself; I’m a lucky guy.
I am almost asleep when she returns.
“Hey!” she exclaims, slapping my bare butt. “You’re sleeping!”
“No I’m not.” I grin, closing my eyes tighter. She pokes my side, I ignore it. She climbs on top of me, I ignore that too. Then she tickles me, she has me pinned, so she has the advantage for a moment and I can’t help my laughter as I fight to defend myself. But then I manage to take back control and I turn the tables on her, while she shrieks with laughter. I notice with slight disappointment that she has underwear on.
“Hey, why did you put panties on?”
“Panties,” she says, testing the word. “I love the way you say that.”
“How else would I say it?”
“Knickers,” she says bluntly. So British. “I love that way you say it.” She smiles. “And I love you.”
I sink back down beside her. “I’m going to miss you, even if it’s only for a few days.”
“I’ll miss you too, but you should spend some time with Jen and your parents before you come back, I’ll get in the way of that. Besides I have a feeling the baby will come soon, Andy says Grace is the size of a house!” She laughs at the thought of that. From what I remember of Grace, I imagine she’s a nightmare pregnant.
Liv sits up. “Come on, let’s have a shower.”
I drop my head back onto the bed. How can she be so energetic?
“Come on,” she calls from the door.
I wave my hand dismissively.
“I’ll be right behind you,” I say to humour her. I so don’t want to get up, I think I might just stay here a while. From the dresser, my cell rings. I sigh and reluctantly drag myself off the bed.
I groan when I see the caller ID. It’s Brooke. Why is she calling? I reject the call. I’m sure I’ll find out what she wants when I get back. I just know she won’t have good intentions and I won’t have her ruin this for me. I think back to Jen and Scott warning me off her in the beginning. Jen in particular has always detested her, and I ignored them…what harm could friends with benefits do? Except, without the benefits, I don’t think I would want to be friends. Liv has given me the clarity to see that Brooke has been a huge lack of judgement on my part. Now I just have to make sure that Brooke gets the message and keeps away from me from now on.
