Desire by Max Henry
Book #1 in the Twisted Hearts Duet.
Release Date: January 24th 2018
Four simple rules when you’re a man on parole:
1. Don’t lust after your best friend’s daughter.
2. Don’t get into a physical fight over her.
3. Definitely don’t f*ck her.
4. And whatever you do, don’t fall in love.
I have a bad habit of breaking rules.

“Ssh.” I lift a finger to my lips and step lightly across her floor to the curtains beside her bed.
I want to see her, read her reaction, when I go past the point of no return.
Pulling the drapes back an inch, I let the soft glow of light into her room to shine a path across her bed. She sits up, leaning back on her palms as the light slices a path across her beautiful face.
I’m going to burn in hell for her. But fuck me, she’s so worth it.
“You want me to leave?” I ask as I crawl on her bed to settle beside her.
“No,” she says with a confused smile. “I just wondered why you’re in here.”
“I can’t sleep,” I admit. “Can’t rest when you’re right across the hall.”
She swallows, a frown twitching on her brow as she works through this next step. “What is this, Zeus?”
“It’s me, needing you. And you, wanting me.”
She glances up at me before averting her gaze to the door while she speaks. “We could get caught.”
“We won’t.” I loop a hand around her ankle and guide her leg out straight. “So lie the fuck down and let me hold you.”
