Found releases in two weeks! Until then, here's a sneak peak of chapter one.
If Levi mentioned my sex life with Toby one more time I was going to slap him.
“I don’t see how it changes anything. You already knew I wasn’t a virgin.”
“I thought you’d been with a human. That’s different. Human men don’t count. I assumed I was your first Pteron.” The serious expression on his face made me want to laugh despite my anger.
“That’s ridiculous.” I tied the laces on my running shoes. I was antsy from spending so much time inside and was excited that Hailey was coming by Levi’s house to meet me for a run.
“It was nothing like it is with us, right? Just tell me that.”
I let out a deep breath. “How many human girls were you with before me?”
“Yeah, I thought so. Does that mean what we have isn’t special? Different?”
“Of course not.” He sat down next to me, leaving no space between us. “Those girls meant nothing. You mean everything.”
“Exactly.” I decided not to berate him about the disrespectful way he treated women before me. “You may not have been my first Pteron, but you’re my favorite.” I kissed him on the cheek. I was trying to pretend it didn’t weird me out, but I was going crazy. How was it possible for me to have been with two different Pterons? I wasn’t even nineteen yet.
His shoulder brushed against mine. “Have we had sex more times than you guys did?”
“What?” I shot up and away from him. “No. No. No. We are not talking about this anymore. Say it again and you can forget about us having sex any time in the near future. Got it?”
He put up his hands in mock defense. “Fine. I just don’t like it.”
“You’ve made your feelings abundantly clear.” I turned to walk out of his bedroom to wait for Hailey. I didn’t make it through the doorway.
His arms wrapped around my waist and pulled me back against him. “How long do you have before Hailey gets here?” He kissed my earlobe before trailing a line of kisses down my neck.
“Not enough time.” I spun out of his arms. “I wouldn’t want to cut your amazing skills short.”
He laughed. “Just wait until tonight, Al. I’ll show you amazing.”
“I can hardly wait.” I leaned up and kissed him. I should have known it wouldn’t be just a quick little kiss. He wasn’t having any of that. He had me pinned against the wall within seconds. My hands were tangled in his hair almost as quickly.
That was exactly how Hailey found us. “I’d tell you to get a room, but I guess you already have one.”
Levi reluctantly backed up. “Impeccable timing as always, Hailey.”
She shrugged. “What can I say? I have the touch.”
“That you do. Let’s get out of here.” I ran a finger down Levi’s bare arm. “Don’t get too bored without me.”
