Welcome Jen McLaughlin as they share their Great Pick Up Line from
Dare to Lie (Sons of Steel Row #3).
Take it away Jen!
He reached across the table and closed a hand over mine. I stiffened. His palm was calloused and warm. It dwarfed mine. “You’re right. I’m being a jerk on purpose, but it’s for a good reason, not because I think you aren’t good enough for me.”
His skin on mine was electrifying. I pulled away, putting my hand safely in my lap. “Then why are you doing it?”
“You’ve been straightforward with me, so I’ll give you the same honesty. I’m not a respectable guy, and I’m not going to leave a good mark on this world like you. Normally, I’d eat you up like chocolate mousse pie, and leave you naked and trembling in your bed for hours, but you’re my boss’s sister, so I really don’t want to mess with you and piss him off, because I’ll lose my job. The risk isn’t worth the reward. No matter how beautiful you are, I won’t touch you, because it’ll end badly for me. I’m selfish like that.”
My mouth opened, closed, and opened again. “But if Tate wasn’t . . . ?”
“I’d bring you back to my place, take you any way you wanted me to, as many times as you wanted me to. I’d make you mine in every way, lick every inch of your body, whisper hot, sweet words in your ear . . .” He dropped his hand, which had still been resting on the table, in his lap. “And then I’d walk away. I’d forget your name, and everything we talked about, and move on to the next girl, the next night, without a hint of guilt. I never sleep with the same woman twice. That’s who I am.”
I held my breath, images of him “using” me until I trembled sending a surge of lust rolling through my body. Which was stupid, because he was literally telling me he had no interest in me besides sex. And yet . . . I didn’t really care.
Dare to Lie (Sons of Steel Row #3) by Jen McLaughlin
The third thrill-a-minute novel in the gritty contemporary Sons of Steel Row romance series from the author of Dare to Run and Dare to Stay.
As an undercover DEA agent in the most powerful gang in Boston, Scott Donahue accepts the risks of living a double life. But when Tate Donovan, leader of the Sons of Steel Row, assigns Scotty to take his place in a bachelor’s auction sponsored by his sister’s sorority, he’s exposed to a whole new level of danger. Even though Tate makes it very clear—Skylar is off limits—the second Scotty sees her, he’s a goner. But how does he tell Sky she’s falling for a man who doesn’t exist?
Sky can’t resist Scotty’s cool confidence or the raw, edgy power oozing from his perfect body. She’s always been the good girl, but he brings out the bad in her. And even though she knows so little about who he really is, Sky’s willing to take the biggest risk of all. But putting her heart on the line is no guarantee that Scotty won’t slip through her fingers…
