Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.
I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.
Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.
But there is one problem.
An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.
It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.
“Will you stop laughing, it was awful.” I flopped down on my couch and buried my head in the throw pillow.
“Come on, Sadie, it can’t be that bad.” Anna had no idea.
“No, not bad at all, Ms. Murphy just found her son with his mouth on my tits but hey, it was nothing.”
“Okay so when you say on your tits, was he like smashed between them, or focusing on one at a time?”
“You are an asshole.” She was loving my humiliation, the sound of her laughter confirmed this. I know my best friend, and had the tables been turned she would have grabbed her shirt, put it on, and then managed to prance around as if nothing had happened. “You should have seen the look on her face. And then Will didn’t make things any better.”
“I’m sure he had a whole lot to say.”
“Too much.” His words were still ringing in my mind. It was almost as if his poor mother wasn’t standing at his side while he spewed things that furthered my humiliation. I don’t think I will ever be able to face her without feeling like a complete idiot.
“She is a woman, she was married to one of the Murphy men for years, I think she is completely aware of their powers.” Anna was trying to make me feel better and she was failing. “I’m sure she’s already forgotten about what she saw.”
“Sure, yeah, I’m sure.” Not even close. “I’m sure that the idea of me having premarital sex with her son in his garage is the furthest thing from her mind. Not to mention she found him sucking on my nipple.”
Anna’s laugh echoed even louder, accompanied by a snort. “Oh, so he was mid-suck?”
“I’m hanging up on you now.” I ended the call to the sounds of her uncontrollable laughter and didn’t feel any better about what had taken place only a short time ago.
The minute I looked up to find Wyatt’s mother and brother there I let my head hang low as I hurried out of the garage ignoring the protests of Wyatt. Almost tripping three times in my need to get inside quickly I practically slammed into my front door before righting myself and finally stepping inside.
I planned on hiding out here for days.
I can see it now, the next headline will read…
Our small-town hero was caught mid suck when his own mother broke through the pre-sexed haze during a steamy night in the garage.
Kill me now! I knew it was only a matter of time before my own mother got her hands on the information. Oh God, and my father…I felt sick!
