Mid Week Tease -You Don’t Need to Fix Me- A snippet from Taking Over (Love Projects 3)

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from Taking Over, the latest release in my Love Projects Series. It’s a friends to enemies to lovers romance.

Last Week I shared from a sexy scene.

Today’s Tease I’ve skipped forward to a different scene. Jake is defending his lady love, Lydia, from Gina. Marcus is about to step in and take over where Jake left off. Enjoy!

“What the hell is wrong with you?” Jake took a step towards Gina.

“Nothing. There is also nothing wrong with Lydia.” She sipped her coffee. “She’s quite capable of talking for herself.”

“She’s right.” Lydia tugged on his arm. “It’s fine.”

“I’m tired of her stomping all over everyone when she wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.”

“You don’t know shit about me.” Gina cocked back her head. Not wanting any of them to know she’d found her someone, but that he could never love her like Jake clearly loved Lydia. “I woke up just fine this morning.”

“That’s enough, Gina.” Marcus stepped around Jake. “Everyone back to work.” He stared her down. “Except you.”

Once Lydia tugged Jake out of the room, everyone else followed.

“Thanks for getting the monkeys off my back, honey.” She put the spoon she used to stir her coffee in the dishwasher.

“Why do you do that?”

“I didn’t do anything. It’s not my fault Lydia can’t stand up for herself.” She sipped her coffee.

“She shouldn’t have to defend herself to you.”

“No, but she needs to think better of herself.” She placed her mug on the counter and crossed her arms.

“I could say the same to you.”

“I’m not broken.” She charged towards him. “You don’t need to fix me!” She shoved him, then clutched his shirt in both hands. “Do you hear me? I’m not broken.” She shoved against his chest again.

“I’m in your corner.” He wrapped her in his arms. “Don’t push me away.”

“Don’t you see?” She bit her lip. “You’ll do it all on your own. It’s okay. I’m used to it.” She tore out of his grip. “I’m a hard girl to love.”

Gina’s life was perfect, until the day she realized the man she loved didn’t love her back. Her charming life turned upside down as tragedy and cruelty struck her down. She learned to protect her family from those who could cause them pain, but she inadvertently ensured the perfect life would be forever out of her reach.

Marcus has hid his love for Gina for years. His assumptions about her have allowed him to be harsh, but underneath all the anger is a man deeply in love. The tough realities of her life put them in position to see themselves in a whole new light. The second chance is right there and it could take them over the edge into the love they’ve always wanted.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, sex toys, public exhibition
