The Boy Next Door is a contemporary, second chance romance published by HEA Press.
The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier—my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.
No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.
Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.
He’s not the boy next door. Not anymore.
I’m guarding my heart this time.
But Dash has secrets that could break us both.
He runs a finger over my lip, giving me the saddest look. A look that I can’t handle, so I kiss him hard—to hurt—and am rewarded with a bark-groan sound. Then we’re in his car; I’m spread out on the back seat, Dash is lording over me, his body crowding the small space, his mouth and hands more frenzied than usual.
He makes me come hard, twice, and then he kisses my cheek, helps me put my clothes to rights, and pushes the car door open. One look at his tented pants, and I want to do something about it…
But I get in the front seat anyway.
“Your eyes look nice,” he says as he backs out. “I always loved your glasses, but your eyes are even better.”
I give him side-eye at the use of the word “always.” Dash has the good grace to look down, then at the road. When we get back to our building, he walks around and opens my door. I get out, laughing when I notice the party in his pants.
“Looks like you’re having a hard time there.”
“Maybe you should carry me inside. Sort of in front of you?” I giggle.
I shrug, and Dash throws me over his shoulder. He carries me all the way to the elevator, and when we reach the seventh floor, he picks me up again. He’s still hard when he drops me on my doormat.
I eye his impressive tent. “Pretty sure there’s something in your pants there.”
I nod slowly. “Definite trouser snake. Too bad you can’t get someone to help you…let it out.”
Then his mouth is on my neck; my key is in the door; the two of us are on my foyer floor…and Dash is in my mouth.
