Chapter Excerpt: Heart Breaker by Briana Cole
Jayla leaned in closer, pushing her body against him. She glanced at his full lips, then back up to his eyes.
“You want to take me home?” she whispered. She felt his body stiffen. Before he could pull away, she leaned in and pressed her lips against his.
Reggie snatched away. The abrupt withdrawal had Jayla stumbling to catch her balance.
“I…” A combination of fear and embarrassment tinted his face. “I’m sorry I--,”
“What’s wrong? I want you Reggie. You are so sexy and I want you. Don’t you want me?”
“I have a girlfriend,” he said. “This is wrong.”
Jayla hadn’t expected the confession and she bit her lip in consideration. Next move, next move. What to do? What to do?
His cell phone went off, slicing the sexual tension like a knife. He fumbled for the device before pulling it from his pocket. Wiping his lips, he answered, “Yeah?” He glanced back to the bar.
Jayla rolled her eyes. His friends were hating. Probably jealous she was all but throwing it at him all night and not them.
“I’m coming,” he said and hung up. Reggie looked at Jayla again and mumbled a short “get home safe” before turning and trekking it back across the parking lot.
She sighed. The regret was more than prominent in his voice. Fine. Next time she saw Reggie, she would pull the apology card. Weak, vulnerable… that would probably turn him on even more than the direct approach.
Jayla had just slid behind the wheel when her own phone rang. She already knew it was Heather before she picked up. “Hello?”
“How did it go?”
“It will be in my final report,” she said, exasperation bringing on a slight headache. “If you want to discuss details prior to that, remember it must be done in person.”
“I know, I’m sorry.” It was Heather’s turn to sigh. “I don’t know. I just. . . you’re right. Guess I just got a little anxious when Reggie didn’t come home and didn’t call.”
“I’m not done yet,” Jayla said. Pause.
“Ok, um…” It was too obvious she had something else to say.
“What is it?” Jayla prompted, slightly irritated. “Do you want me to stop?” Another pause.
Heather’s voice was soft as she spoke again. “Once you’re done and he doesn’t cheat with you, is it safe to say he passed?”
“I don’t think I understand the question,” Jayla said, frowning.
“Like, you can report he is faithful.”
“Um…” Jayla thought back a minute and had to stifle a smirk. Now that was funny. “I’ve yet to have that happen,” she admitted. “But I guess we’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”
Heather’s disappointed silence wanted to tug on her heart. The truth hurt, she knew. But it was a matter of choice. Either she wanted to know, or she didn’t. Simple as that.
When they hung up, Jayla laid her head back on the rest. Any man can be hooked. You just need the right bait. Jayla closed her eyes at the thought. She had proven the concept true thus far. It was only a matter of time.
