Blog Tour for Embrace (The Greyson-Slade Series) by Kristin Kitchen
Hosted by Panty dropping Book Blog
Releases July 16, 2014
Joss Brockton discovers that the power of love can be the salvation of damaged souls.
Feisty and independent Joss has been running as fast and as far as she can from her tragic past, never letting anyone inside to see the deepest and darkest parts of her soul. But when the end of the line leads her to Archer, North Carolina, can she put aside her fears and allow herself to find happiness with the equally damaged Chris Greyson?
Army Ranger Chris Greyson has survived horrors most people could never imagine. Restored to his family, he remains haunted by his ordeal, letting no one truly reach him…until Joss comes along and shows him the true meaning of “coming home”.
I wake up wrapped tightly in Chris’s arms, my back to his chest, head resting on his bicep. His arm wrapped around my waist pins me to him. I wait for the panic to settle in, but it never comes. My mind races as I consider what I allowed to happen last night.
I won’t deny for a moment, it was amazing. I want more even just lying beside his body. The question is, how to make him understand sex is all I have to offer him? My heart is never going to be available. You can’t give something that is broken beyond repair.
“You’re awake,” Chris grumbles in my ear in his sexy, sleepy voice.
“I am,” I whisper, wishing I had more time to think this through before he woke.
“I could tell,” he tightens his hold on my waist. “The moment you started over thinking where you woke up, your body tensed up.”
“I can’t do this, Chris,” I sigh as the first tear threatens my lashes.
“You can’t do this with someone else. I’m different and you know it.”
“No, I can’t. I don’t have what you need.” I try to pull from his arms, but he holds me tightly in place. “You need someone that can take care of you. You need someone that knows how to put your pieces back together and you need someone that can give you her heart. I’m not that girl, handsome.”
“Keep telling yourself that, princess. I see the Joss that you can’t see.”
I struggle against his hold, desperate to escape the prison of his arms. “I’m broken, Chris. You don’t need broken. You need strong! Now let me go!” I demand.
“How about you quit fucking telling me what I need?” he roars as he flips me onto my back, still caged in his arms.
“Chris!” I begin to yell, but he quickly stops me when his lips hit mine. I struggle beneath the weight of him as he settles into me, his lips devouring mine, his hips resting between my thighs and his hands buried deep in my hair.
