Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?
Kent stretched languidly as he drifted out of sleep the next morning. He’d gone out with Rich for a few more beers after they’d dropped off Roni’s stuff, but he didn’t feel any worse for it.
He slowly opened one eye, happy for the blackout curtains he’d hung in his bedroom.
He was not a morning person.
He glanced over at the clock, his forearm brushing against the empty sheets next to him, and he wondered how long it had been since he’d had a woman in his bed.
Shit, at least since Roni had come to town and squatted in his house. Well, now that she had moved out and he had his space back, he would have to remedy that.
His mind wandered to Briana, and he wondered how she was doing in Austin. He couldn’t help but smile.
Although he was sad that she’d taken Colin back and had moved away, he couldn’t help but be proud that she’d followed her dreams.
He could think of her now without feeling sad. He knew that she’d never really been his to lose, but he’d still felt bereft when she’d told him she didn’t want to see him anymore.
He wasn’t naïve enough to think that he’d loved her, but he knew that he could have, if she’d given him the chance.
“Oh, well,” he thought as he pushed himself up in the bed and threw his legs over the side. “No use wishing for something that was never going to happen. Time to move on.”
He sat still for a moment, allowing himself time to wake up, before standing up and heading into the bathroom to take a shower.
