Excerpt


He stood in the foyer, waiting. Sean was chatting with the Pastor and had yet to realize how long Lexi had been gone from the ballroom.

To Jasen, Lexi was more beautiful than ever but the look she shot Jasen as she reentered the foyer, was cold as ice rather than warm and welcoming...

Lexi glared at Jasen. He looked the same yet better. His hair was now cut in a dark Caesar style. His moustache was fuller, with a light beard. He had gained weight but it was well proportioned. It looked like he still worked out faithfully. With his smooth, milk chocolate and dark, intense eyes, He had that same unmistakable swag that was king like. Alpha male, Without it being spoken. Intrinsic.

Jasen was back. And after all these years, he still had a powerful effect on her.

But none of that mattered anymore. He had betrayed her. And THAT, Lexi couldn't forget.

"I saw everything, heard everything that I needed to -that day. There's nothing else you could possibly do to negate that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to my Man."

Before Jasen could protest, she walked away, leaving him to stare at her rapidly retreating back.

Lexi rushed into the first available elevator. Hands shaking slightly, She pushed the button for lobby level. The elevator briefly dropped then the doors slid open and she nearly ran into Sean in her haste to escape Jasen and her flood of resurfaced emotions....
