Six Sentence Sunday

We continue Claire and Ryan's story this week in my contemporary erotic novella, Shades Of Grey! 

Claire Lauder was the girl next door who fell in love with the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now these ex-lovers find themselves on opposite sides of the law, but Claire soon learns that all is not as it seems. Ryan Wyatt is a man with a dark past who is given a second chance. The price? Betray the man and the organization that took him in when he had nothing. but will forgiveness be harder to earn from the woman he has never stopped loving?

"It matters to me that you understand I would never have let anything happen to Kyle if—” 

“Why?” Claire asked, her eyes filling with tears. “Why the hell does it matter?” 

“Because,” he whispered, gripping her arms, pressing his forehead to hers, his ragged breath hot against her face. “I can’t bear it that you hate me. I can’t bear it anymore, Claire.”

Aw, great moment. Love when tough guys break down and let their emotions out.
