Josey is an extremely strong woman, even if she doesn’t believe herself to be. Going to the Ryan family’s New Year’s Eve bash is a big step for her. One that could make or break her confidence.
Connor McCallum is a ladies man with a vow not to get exclusively involved with another woman, ever. His ex has left him bitter, and in a battle to get custody of their daughter. The Ryan’s party is just a means to hook up for a night.
This is when they meet a favorite scene.
Samantha arched a brow at him. “You best behave, Chase. I’m on a mission from your mother. This is a friend of hers, Miss Josey. I’m needed back in the kitchen, so you need to introduce her around and make her feel at home. Got it?”
“Yes, ma’am,” he said with a cheeky grin.
“I’ll take the first introduction,” the man next to him said, extending his hand. “I’m Connor McCallum.”
Josey placed her hand in his and he brought it to his mouth and kissed her knuckles. “Josey Clifford,” she replied.
Still holding her hand, he replied, “Where have you been hiding all my life, Josey Clifford?”
Josey laughed. “You didn’t seriously just say that to me, did you?”
Connor chuckled. “Well, it broke the ice, didn’t it?” He turned to the Ryan brothers. “I’m going to steal this lovely lady and get her a drink. Talk to you later.” He put his arm around her waist and started leading her away.
“A bit presumptuous aren’t you? I don’t recall being asked if I wanted to leave with you or if I wanted a drink.”
He looked down at her with those amazing eyes. “I’m sorry, I tend to take what I want and I want you.”
Tingles raced down her spine, damn. She cleared her throat. “Wow, you don’t waste any time, do you, Connor? Could we slow it down it bit?”
Connor slid his hand up and down her back. “I’ll try. Let’s get you that drink and find a place to sit down and talk.”
“That sounds good. I need a drink about now.”
“Oh, come on, I’m not that bad, am I?”
She arched a brow at him. “No, you’re that good,” she said with a flirty smile. He squeezed her hip. “Umm, I like that answer.” They walked up to the bar, Josey ordered a screwdriver and Connor got another beer. He led them to the side of the room and miraculously they found two empty chairs.
“Kismet,” he said.
“So it seems.”
