Synopsis: Beth, in another life, was a top student and had nothing but visions of a successful career in her head. That was until one night with Sterling Johnson, the sexy and deceitful swim champion next door, who changed her entire future. Now, because of that night from her past, Beth’s path as a photographer is forever changed. Gone is the young women she used to be as she struggles to keep a secret hidden.
Sterling Johnson, on the other hand, has quickly become America’s favorite Olympic athlete. Constantly followed and stalked by the press and the father he has turned his back on, Sterling craves someone who isn’t interested in his celebrity.
When a publicity stunt takes him back to a wild college campus and Beth, who turns out to be the media photographer assigned to his story, the flame he thought was dead rekindles. Will Beth prove to be the only girl not interested in his celebrity status? Or are her own twisted secrets and lies about to bring both their worlds down?
“Do you still want to travel like how you used to?”
She shrugged her shoulders. “Maybe one day.” And in an even lower voice, “When it’s the right time I’ll see the world.” Such as when Jewel had grown up. Jewel would be starting school in a year. Even if Beth could travel, even if she used the money that paid for her apartment to instead ventured out and traveled a little, it would be selfish to move. The best thing for a kid was a stable non-changing environment. Beth was stuck where she lived and worked now for the next eighteen years.
“Anything you put your mind to I believe you’ll do, I have no doubt.” That truly meant something coming from an Olympian. Yet, in the room alone, away from the security that was outside, Sterling for once out of his disguise felt like a normal person, even a nice person at that. And as Beth and him looked at each other, she couldn’t help but see and even feel in the air the sensation of being around someone that she’d had the most intimate and intense physical experience with in her entire life. Their eyes stayed on each other and something within her chest stirred, the energy all around them so different now.
“What would you want to do, or where would you like to go, once you’ve retired from the Olympics?” Beth found herself asking in a light, nervous voice. This was something she needed to ask in order to get a feel for exactly how his future plans would mesh with a child, however, right now the question came out fast like quickening heartbeat, almost like she was flirting with him. And she wasn’t, right? She wouldn’t be that stupid.
“What would I want ‘to do?’” His eyes went down to her lips and then back up to her eyes. “I guess just experience the freedom of a calmer, more private life,” he told her, “where I can do what I want and not worry about whose watching or might be recording.”
Beth nodded as the space between them seemed less and less, and then Sterling said, “No one is watching now …” Slowly and cautiously, he moved closer in a way that was asking for both permission and demanding consent, and Beth found that she didn’t want him to stop. She didn’t move as he took advantage of this time they shouldn’t have had and leaned his head down more and more until his lips were almost touching hers. “I’ve been wanting to do this since the moment I realized it was you in that work office,” he said in a low, heavy, intense voice.
Beth’s entire body gushed and that energy in her chest felt like it wanted and needed to explode. As if lost in a dream, she leaned her head up and Sterling Johnson came down, closing the space between them then. His lips rubbed hers in a gentle swoop, sending fireworks down her spine. They still felt good, just like when they had kissed years ago, her own lips caressing his and proving to herself she could still kiss after all this time. Oh yeah, she could. She felt dazzled and taken over as he opened his arms, pulling her in as her own hands went up, touching the smooth shirt over his chest that was too thin as she felt him and they really kissed. Then kissed some more, her body purring in a way that shocked her as she’d forgotten what it was like to be pressed up against someone strong...
