“Don’t you Emma-it’s-good-to-see-you me! You sent men to my apartment to move me out. What the hell?”
He put up his hands as he stood. “Listen, I’m just doing this for your safety. Where you’re staying is not good for you. It’s dangerous. I worry about you staying there at night. I have somewhere safe where you can stay.”
“But did I ask you to do that?”
“No, but I’ve known you and your family for a very long time. I’m not just going to stand by and let you stay in an unsafe situation.”
“That is not for you to determine.”
“Look, I get that you’re mad, but honestly, you’ll love the new place. It’s close by. It’s right near your school, and it’ll take you less than five minutes on the bus. It’s safer. It’s nicer.”
“I didn’t ask you to do this. Why are you acting like you’re my dad?”
“Trust me. I am not your father.”
“You promised me. You promised you weren’t going to tell Steven. You promised me you weren’t going to tell my parents.”
He reached out and planted his hands on her shoulders. ”And, I didn’t. I kept that promise. I didn’t tell them a thing.”
She stared at him. “Are you insane? Like actually certifiable? I want to know.”
“No, not last I checked. But I do care about you, and I want you to be safe. You can’t possibly suggest that I don’t want you to be safe.”
She opened her mouth and then shut it firmly.
“I would prefer that you check with me before you interfere in my life. I liked my apartment.”
He shook his head and laughed. “No, you didn’t. Nobody would like that apartment. It was a dump.”
“But it was my dump. You can’t just take over my life. You can’t just waltz in and decide you know better. I’m not going to allow it.”
He didn’t know what happened then because he’d had something perfectly rational to say, something that would have calmed her down and gotten her to see his way of thinking, except he didn’t pull that out. He couldn’t remember it, because like an idiot, he’d forgotten his golden rule: don’t stare at Emma’s lips.
And the whole time she had been talking and ranting at him, he’d been staring. And once you stare at something you can’t have, you forget that you shouldn’t be having it in the first place. So he kissed her. The moment his lips hit hers, he knew there was no going back.
Her lips were soft, so damned soft. When she gasped, he couldn’t help it; he had to have a taste. Just a small one. When he delved his tongue into her mouth and slid his tongue against hers, a shiver racked his body.
Zach wanted more, so much more. He wanted to pull her into him and devour her, but that little whimper she made at the back of her throat stopped him. If he kept kissing her, he’d lift her onto his desk and sink into her. Fuck the consequences.
She gasped and he took full advantage, sliding his tongue deep into her mouth. Tentatively, she met his tongue with hers and he groaned low. With a sigh, Emma melted into him and looped her arms around his neck, pouring herself into the kiss.
Zach pulled back slightly, nipping at her bottom lip as he did. She swayed into him and he had to wrestle with the savage part of him that wanted to claim her on his desk.
Emma ran her tongue over her bottom lip and he groaned. When he pressed his lips to hers again, his lips were soft, tentative, and explorative at first as he tried to go slow. But he wanted to devour her. To make her his. To make her feel alive and wanted.
You’re not good enough for her. For once, he listened to the voice loud and clear.
He dragged his lips from hers, harsh pants tearing out of his chest as he staggered back, pushing her away from him. “Shit, Emma. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean for that to—”
Her lashes fluttered as she blinked her eyes open. “Zach, I—I’m going to go.”
All he could do was watch as she ran from his office.
Well, that went well.
You’ve heard the rumors...
Yes, they’re all true. The women…the bank account…the really big…

She’s my best friend’s little sister and when he asked me to give her the grand tour, he did not mean of my bedroom.
