Jax’s jaw tenses, he cuts his stare, and that says all I need to know. “What are we doing Jax?” I demand. “We’re poison to each other.” I turn away and charge toward the bedroom, and I don’t stop at the door. I already found my suitcase and took it to the bathroom. I had to brush my teeth because I imagined myself kissing Jax. I imagined all these wonderful things with him, but that can’t happen now.
I hurry through the room, and I’ve made it halfway to the bathroom, just past the bed, when Jax catches my arm. Heat rushes up my arm, and it’s not all about anger. It’s about this man touching me. It’s about this man and how much I want him, how much I even feel as if want has transformed to need. I whirl around, intent to confront him, but I fail. He drags me against him, all those hard muscles absorbing all the softer parts of me, and the words linger on my tongue, but never leave my mouth.
“What are we doing?” he demands, and he doesn’t give me time to reply. “This.” His mouth closes down on mine, and I try to fight, no, I tell myself to fight, to push back, to save myself before I go down and never find my way back up. But I don’t fight. I don’t even try to save myself.
His mouth closes down on mine, and the taste of him, all man and demand, undoes me. I sink into his big, powerful body, as my tongue meets his. I’m all in, kissing him like there is no tomorrow, and maybe there isn’t, maybe there can’t be, but right now, right now, I reject that idea. I drink him in the way he’s drinking me in until his mouth is gone, his breath a warm whisper, as he says, “That. Over and over again, with no end I want to imagine. We’re not bad for each other. We’re not poison. Say it. We’re not poison.”
But I can’t say it.
How can I say what I’m not sure I believe?

“We are two broken people, suffering from loss and looking for answers in each other.”
Lisa Renee Jones is my puppet master, pulling my strings and controlling my thoughts. Of course, I know what I’m thinking is probably wrong and she’ll shock me later. I can’t wait!
This Naked Trilogy is an adrenaline rush of secrets and suspense. I don’t know who to trust, but like her, I believe that Jax is just too delicious to give up and worth the risk to our health. They are both keeping things to themselves that I look forward to learning eventually. But, what they aren’t being stingy with is the‘naked time’ for which I’m thankful. Their connection is intense, especially since “Everything about this man is a whole lot better than good. Except, of course, the hate between our families.” They have every reason to avoid each other like the plague…but they can’t.
I’m having the best time trying to unravel the mystery while being fully entertained along the way. Waiting for Two Together has me bouncing with excitement. I have questions that need answers. I have guesses that need confirmation. I have an addiction that needs a fix. The line forms here…
