âSheâs given some meaning to the chaos that I happen to call a life, and I want more.â
If someone asked whether or not you wanted to know something that would be life altering, what would you say? Would it really be worth knowing at the risk of changing your world?
Dax Blakely wasnât given this choice. With the unknown diagnosis of his brother lingering at the forefront of every thought, all he can do is immerse himself in thoughts focusing around the worst outcomes. When Dax learns of the bleak prognosis, he is unable to sit back and watch his world crumble, so he demands the top experts treat his only living family member. The last thing he expects to interfere is an off-limits romance.
Being thrust into a position where he must quash his desires, Dax isnât willing to let the woman he wants get away. Unfortunately, heâs fallen and thereâs no turning back. With her evading every advance, his need to pursue her grows deeper and deeper, until an unexpected familial turn of events makes him realize what he wants may not be what he really needs after all.

âSorry B, you arenât like other woman. And thatâs not a rule. Iâll be waiting to hear from you. I donât want to be left hanging.â I smirk at my play on words that go ignored and reluctantly remove my hand.
âI never said that I had any intention of calling you. I wanted to avoid the awkwardness of you asking for my number by giving it instead. Anyways, I bet that youâll be the one who caves and calls first.â
âWould you like to make a wager on that?â I question.
She purses her lips. âNah, Iâd hate to see you lose.â
âAlways so presumptuous, arenât you? A little fact about me that you may like to know: I. Donât. Lose. Oh, and I have every intention of talking to you again.â
âThis is never going to go anywhere, you know that, right?â she questions.
âI like a challenge.â I shrug and pull away from her, playing with the interior door buttons, refusing to look her in the eye.
âThis isnât a challenge. Itâs not even an option.â
I tip my ball cap and leave her to think about that. âUntil next time.â
I close her door and tap it as I turn to leave. I wonder what would happen if I had the balls to lean in and kiss her. Iâm not certain, but I wouldnât put it past her to slap me if I tried.
While I walk away, I turn to see her and find her staring after me. I canât refrain the urge to wink. Seeing her overcome by my antics is such a delight.
She gulps and looks away.
I continue my ascent to the street. Tonight was exactly the type of night I was needing. A reprieve from the stresses at home. A break from thoughts of Liamâs treatment. A chance to get to know Brighton on a personal level.
Iâm pleased with how the evening turned out and can only hope that there will be many more in the future. For now, I guess I should focus on my trip and the prospect of seeing her once I return. When I make my way back out, I shake my head at this new predicament.
I think Iâve just opened a whole new world of trouble.
