Title: Out of Chances
Author: Shona Husk
Series: Face the Music #4
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: November 22, 2015Summary:
Shona Husk’s sexy new adult series about emerging rock band Selling the Sun concludes this month with a story about a woman who doesn’t want to connect, a man who’s forgotten how and the friendships that save our lives.
Dan Clarke knows he doesn’t have a problem, regardless of whatever his band members, his friends, his family and everyone else thinks. Drinking isn’t keeping him from doing what needs to be done, and it helps keep the anger and pain of his ex-girlfriend’s betrayal at bay. If only she would stay away as well, but, since the band’s return to Fremantle, she’s everywhere-on the phone, in his apartment, at his parents’ house-begging for another chance, reminding him of how good they had been together, holding him hostage to the past. It’s no wonder he needs a beer now and again.
Indigo Matthews is all about control: she trains hard, she works hard and she plays hard. Men are for fun, not forever, and she will never end up like her mother, trapped and miserable. A huge Selling the Sun fan, Indigo knows when Dan wanders into her bar that he is a conquest that she has to make. But their connection is stronger than just sex, and regardless of her credo Indigo finds herself going back for more. Then truths about Dan’s life start to emerge, and Indigo finds herself in the one position she swore she’d never find herself.
A DUI, a drunk one night stand and an ultimatum from the band bring Dan’s life to a halt. Picking up the pieces is something he can’t do alone, and there’s only one person that he trusts to give a damn. The one person that he hurt the most. Indigo.
Her hand snuck over his hip and into his back pocket. ‘Is there anything useful in your wallet or do we need to go to the bedroom?’
‘I’m good either way.’ He tugged her closer.
The length of him pressed against her. Her panties offered no protection.
‘You want to leave the shoes on?’ He smiled against her lips.
‘I can.’ She tugged his wallet, it felt like leather, out of his pants and opened it up. He didn’t try to stop her. She felt around while he distracted her. Eventually she found what she was looking for. Two of … he was hopeful. She put his wallet on the kitchen counter. ‘So, should I turn around like this?’
Indigo twisted in his arms so her butt rubbed against him. He nipped at her neck as his hands moved lower to grab her hips. He ground against her.
Her heart kicked over. She didn’t want to waste the time it would take to walk to the bedroom. His fingers slid into her panties and then lower. She bit her lip and closed her eyes as his fingers danced over her sensitive flesh.
‘I’m fine with here,’ she murmured.
‘Me too.’ He pushed her panties down and she stepped out of them. The heel of her shoe briefly catching.
In stockings and shoes she felt more exposed than she did naked, but she wasn’t going to back down now. She rested her elbows on the counter and wiggled her butt. His zipper ratcheted down. The tearing of the packet was too loud. Her breath hitched and it felt like hours crawled by while she waited. Then his hands were tracing down her spine and smoothing over her buttocks.
