Trust in Me (Friends & Lovers, #3)Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband's fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she'll find her path. When the town's local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams...and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.

Rich never expected to fulfill his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that's just what he's doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies' man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he's willing to prove that he's serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he's more than willing. But she's taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are over and that she can trust him with her heart?


  Rich stood under the shower and let the hot water massage his aching muscles. Eyes closed, he allowed himself to think about Roni and the proposition she’d brought to him. She’d looked so pretty standing amidst his cluttered room. He’d wished briefly that he could throw her over his shoulder and ravish her long, lean body on his sorry excuse for a bed, but he’d controlled himself when he heard what she had to say.

   Now that he was alone, he could take a little time to remember how her shirt had been snug in all the right places, and her little skirt had swayed slightly, flirting toned legs that seemed to go on forever.

  When his body started to stiffen, he changed the course of his thoughts and admitted that her idea was a good one. He stepped out of the shower and toweled off. He hung the towel on the rod, then walked out into his room to find something to wear.
  “Jesus, man,” Kent said as he watched his friend stride into the room.

   Rich just looked at him, a cocky smile on his face. “Guess you shoulda knocked.”

   “There’s a freakin’ work crew out there,” Kent exclaimed, gesturing towards the men on the other side of the door. “I didn’t think you’d be prancing around with your door open, naked as the day you were born.”

  “I ain’t got nothin’ they haven’t seen before,” Rich said with a chuckle as he pulled on a pair of jeans.

  “Shit,” Kent laughed. “And he’s going commando.” This he said with his eyes rolled upward.

  “What can I do for you?” Rich asked as he picked up a t-shirt, smelled it, then pulled it over his head. “Other than the free show.”
Eeeep! Rich. Is. Hot.  I'm really excited to read Trust in Me!
