Quote-Tastic Monday #21: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

I’m not sure what’s happening between us. I mean, I agree to help her with her sex problem, but.. problem solved, right? She got what she wanted from me, and we didn’t even need to have sex to make it happen. So technically, there’s no reason for her to sleep with me. Or even keep seeing me, for that matter.

And me.. well, I don’t want a girlfriend. My attention is and has always been focused solely on hockey graduating, and the draft I’m planning on entering come graduation. Not to mention impressing the scouts who are already starting to show up at our games. Now that the season is in full swing, this means more practices and games and less time to devote to anything – or anyone – other than hockey.

 So why does the thought of not spending any more time with Hannah bring the oddest clench of regret to my gut?

She tries to take a step down the hall, but I tug on her hand and kiss her again, and this time it’s not a peck. I kiss her hard, losing myself in her taste and her heat and every damn thing about her. I never expected her. Sometimes people sneak up on you and suddenly you don’t know how you ever lived without them. How you went about your day and hung out with your friends and fucked other people without having this one important person in your life.

Hannah breaks the kiss with a soft laugh. “Get a room,” she teases.

I decided it might be time to re-evaluate my stance on girlfriends.
