SMOLDER, a Crush Series companion novel
“Cami seems really nice. I can see why you hold her in such high regard.”
“She’s the best.” I watched as she meandered on toward the hallway, peeking into some of the other rooms. Following closely after her, I enjoyed knowing that she was moving closer to my bedroom.
“Your room?” she asked, pausing in the doorway and I nodded.
“Yeah, it’s bigger than the others and I was able to make a doorway so one of the bathrooms became an en suite.”
“It looks very . . . inviting,” she said, softly, glancing at me.
“It is. You should try the bed.”
Arching an eyebrow, she looked a bit surprised.
“No seriously. Go sit on the bed. Give it a little bounce.”
She continued to eye me, but eventually moved forward, slowly sinking to the edge of the bed. The springs protested wildly and she laughed. “You seriously sleep on this thing?” She bounced again and again, making the bed squeak repeatedly.

Is it hot in here all of a sudden?” I couldn’t help my continued grin as she pushed past me into the hallway. “Maybe we should go check on Cami.”
Stepping in beside her, I happily followed along. “You looked good on my bed, Doc,” I said, not caring if it was appropriate for me to say so or not.
Pausing, she turned to stare at me, and suddenly the hallway felt really small.
“You know you can’t say things like that to me, right?”
