Because You Love Me is a story about love and trust…
Sabrina Monroe and Jake Landon are caught in a tug of war between love and trust. A hurt Sabrina wants nothing more than to forget about Jake and the fierce love they once shared. A wary yet determined Jake wants to bury the past and start anew. When old feelings and desires are reawakened, Sabrina struggles to keep her distance—and protect her heart. But it’s a losing battle she’s not even sure she wants to win. With Jake determined to gain back her love, Sabrina is left longing for his trust. In a fight for “all or nothing”, they’ll soon discover that even an imperfect love can triumph over all.
Here’s a sneak peek into Jake and Sabrina’s story:
“How late will you be here tonight?”
“Not long, maybe another hour or so. I think I’m going to take some work home so I don’t have to be here past midnight.”
Through the years, he’d gotten used to her late nights at work. He’d never understood why a slide presentation or brochure required anyone to work past six but evidently it did so he’d learned to stop asking. But he made it a point to call her every night so that he was the last thing she thought about when she went to bed.
“I can hang out and give you a ride home.” She was shaking her head before he even finished his offer and for some reason that irritated him. “Why not?”
“I’m going to take a car service home so you don’t have to hang around here and be bored.”
“I don’t mind.”
“Well I do. You’ll just distract me and then I’ll get nothing done.”
He smiled at the thought that he had the same effect on her as she did on him. “It goes both ways, babe. But I wouldn’t mind a little distraction.”
He started slowly advancing toward her, gradually backing her up against the wall.
“Oh no, Jake, don’t even think about it.”
“I won’t,” he drawled then reached for her.
Tilting her head back, he fitted his lips against hers. She gasped and he swallowed the soft sound, taking in all she had to offer. He slanted his mouth over hers, savoring the soft textures of her lips, drinking in her sweetness.
Her hands dug into his chest as he continued his tender assault. The kiss was hot and wet and thoroughly arousing.
He wanted nothing more than to hoist her up against the wall and lose himself in her. Instead, he pulled away from her as he gathered his senses. She laid her head against his chest, her hands twisted in the rough material of his shirt.
Her slow nod felt like a caress. He placed a hand under her chin and lifted her face up to his.
The desire in her eyes beckoned his and at that moment he forgot about his promise.
“I want you,” he whispered huskily.
