Series: Man Up

Loneliness. The pain doesn’t simply go away with time. It’s been years, and they tell me I need to move on. But I can’t. 
Blame and regret are my constant companions. Until I see him in the spotlight and everything changes. Night after night, I watch him dance. Thinking about him. 
What he’d feel like. 
What he’d taste like. 
And now that I know, I want him even more.
And maybe…just maybe, he might want me too. 
But not yet. 
Not before he knows he’s more than a pretty face. Not before he knows what he means to me. I need him by my side. 
The two of us.

Why can’t I forget him? His hands touching me. His mouth on mine. Kissing me. Rendering me mindless. 
Every night I lay awake burning for him. Dreaming. Thinking. Needing him. 
No—I don’t. I don’t need anyone.
I lie. 
I want him.
I want more. I am more. He’s seen that, and now here I stand with my dream on the horizon. All I need to do is take that first step. Trust him. 
Trust myself.

Rhoades begins immediately where Austin, Book one, left off
