Sammy sat out the front of her friend’s house, debating if she loved her enough to endure the next couple of hours. Glancing at her dashboard clock as it hit the seven, telling her she was already half an hour late. She gave a long drawn out sigh, when a voice that unfortunately had become very familiar to her talked through her Car window.
“You can’t hide out here all night. “
Mumbling to herself about overbearing, annoying men, she turned to see one of the hottest men in the world, Slater. Sammy knew that was a big statement, but one she knew was one hundred percent true. Susie’s, and Sandy’s men, were hot, but nothing like the two irresistible men who wouldn’t leave her alone. She burned with a need for them, so much so that every time she saw them, it got harder and harder to fight.
She eyed Slater, he had curly dirty blond hair, deep sea green eyes, a strong square jaw line, and a dark olive tan. The thing that made her shrink back in her seat though, was his six, feet, something height, and his massive bear like bulk.
Sammy giggled at comparing him to a bear, because he was a bear. There was supposed to be a decent amount of shifters, Sammy had been told, wolves, tigers, lions and so on. All the predators.
The predator part was one of the reasons she was hesitant to be with them, or close to them. She was slowly accepting that shifters where real. She was even becoming friends with Brocks sister Gwen. But, thanks to Greg, she still couldn’t be close to any man. And with both Brock and slater towering over her, and built like a bricks, it made it even harder for her to be around all the new men in her friends life, and hers.
Sammy moaned, closing her eyes as one of the men in her life knocked on her car window. She opened her eyes and honed in on his perfect solid chest, which, at the moment was straining to stay in his black t-shirt. “Go away Slater. I will get out when I’m ready.” He raised an eyebrow at her. “Shit, fine. I am, was, getting out.” She grabbed her gift bag, gripping it tight in one of her hands and opened her door trying not to cringe when he moved to the side and not away from her.
Taking a deep breath, she stood, and focused on the front door of her friend’s Susie’s house trying to forget about the large gorgeous male next to her, because Sammy was done with tall big muscled men, or men in general. Well, at least she hoped she was.
Looking up at the star lit night, Sammy prayed that she would stop being attracted to the man casually strolling beside her. She even wished she could find woman attractive, but it didn’t work, and before she reached the door, her other problem, and the only other guy that could hold a candle to the Slater that was now behind her, stood in front of her, Brock.
“Are you trying to avoid us beautiful?”
Snorting, she glared at Brock. “Really what would give you that idea? Oh I know. How about never calling you back. Telling you to go away, or maybe how about the fact if I know you two are going to be somewhere I avoid the place like it’s the plague.”
Brock shrugged his massive shoulders and ran his finger through his jet black locks. His full lips lifted at the side and his sky blue eyes flashed over her, she felt the heat of his stare all the way to her core. Crap! She hated what these men did to her and that she had to hold herself back from jumping up and ravishing them
“Why, we just thought you were playing hard to get.” Slater said from behind her.
Groaning she straighten her shoulders, and stood to her full height of five- four and turned so she faced both men. “I will not be dating either of you.” Slater opened his mouth to comment and she raised her hand in a stop sign. “I’m not dating any men period, every again. I ‘m going to be that lady, who owns all the cats because she lives alone. I want to be that woman, so leave me alone.” Taking a deep breath, she turned back to the door, opened it, and walked through.
On the other side was a massive open plan dinning, kitchen, lounge and hang out area, that was at the moment covered in pink and blue balloons and baby decorative stuff. People she didn’t know where everywhere, male and female. Spotting the woman of the night Susie, Surround by the only people she did know, her two other best friends. Sammy hurried over to the group almost shoving the gift in Susie’s face only to have it snatched by masculine hands behind her.
Slater whispered. “We will add this to our present. Just so you know we also bought her two baby swings.”
She bit her check to keep the groan in, as she knew they hadn’t taken any notice to what she had just said to them. It’d been like this the last couple of months.
