Can’t Stay Away
by Lilly Avalon
Piper Winchester is fresh out of college. With only three weeks until her father remarries and five weeks until her first business venture launches, she’s got her hands full. She certainly doesn’t need any distractions to get in the way of building the future her father’s always wanted for her. But when a familiar boy with bright green eyes walks back into her life, she’s thrown for a loop.
Four years ago, Chase MacKenzie left for college without looking back. He didn’t mean to disturb the peace then, and he definitely doesn’t want to do that now. Once he lays his eyes on Piper again, there’s no way he can leave without fixing what went wrong in the past. Although she’s more determined than ever to push him away, he still manages to get under her skin. Regardless of what happens between them, there’s one thing that will always be standing in their way…
He’s about to become her stepbrother.
“I don’t know what came over me. It’s like he’s covered in magic dust and when I inhale I can’t think clearly.”
“When you do something you’re not suppose to, the last thing you need is the temptation to do it again.”
“Sunday is the slowest day in the history of my life… when you don’t want to be somewhere, that’s when time slows down. It’s almost as though it knows how much you want out of the moment and it punishes you by forcing you to stay in it even longer.”
A sizzling and sensual love story between young adults who met as teenagers when their parents established a relationship, although the weak approval seeking daughter and a rich controlling father are the nucleus of the problem. Father was successful in threatening and scared away his lover’s son as a college student, but it is years later, and father still doesn’t want his potential step-son around his adult daughter. Secrets, conflict, and undeniable chemistry swirl throughout this sensual yet sweet romance.
