How about a little tease from next week’s release?
Seeing Laney in Dad’s study with tears in her eyes about did me in. How the hell was I supposed to walk away from that? Away from her? Still, I doubted she’d accept any comfort from me. I’m sure Austin was the cause of her tears. He didn’t deserve her.
But I do.
I leaned my forehead against the door and blew out a deep breath. I couldn’t think like that. I had to go tell my brother that she was looking for him.
Walking through the house, I dodged my dad and grandparents to slip out the back door. Yup, my idiot brother was exactly where I’d seen him last. Over in the corner slow dancing with some redhead. She had her hands tucked in his back pockets and his hands were tangled in her hair.
Austin had a beautiful girl in the study crying over his stupid ass—a girl I’d kill for a chance with—and he was out here snuggled up to one of Dad’s associate’s slutty daughters.
I ought to shake the shit out of him. But I restrained myself to just squeezing his shoulder. Hard. “Laney’s looking for you.”
Austin pulled the girl closer and nuzzled his nose against her cheek and smirked at me. “Can’t you see I’m busy?”
“I can see you being a damn idiot. That girl in there loves you. Your girlfriend loves you. What the hell is wrong with you?” The urge to put my fist through his teeth rose up within me.
Did he not realize what he could be throwing away just for a piece of ass?
