Here's an excerpt from Her Forbidden Hero where you get to meet Marco's best friend, Alyssa's brother, and One Night's hero, Brady Scott. Brady has just learned that his best friend is in love with his little sister...:
“I have to ask you straight up, man, and I know you’re not going to like it.”
Marco braced for one of a dozen possible questions and motioned for him to continue.
“Are you too fucked up with everything that happened to do right by my baby sister?”
For a long moment, Marco gave the question the consideration it deserved. “I’m not a hundred percent, but I’m doing better. And she makes me want to be better. This past year, half my problem has been floundering around without a purpose. With Alyssa, I’ve found a purpose again. Making her happy would be enough. It would be everything. So, no, I’m not too fucked up.”
Brady drilled him with a serious stare for a long moment, then smirked. “Just a little.”
Marco chuffed out half a laugh. “Just a little.”
“You know it wasn’t your fault, right? You’ve wrapped your head around that much, at least?”
“That would be in the part that isn’t right yet.”
“You telling me it’s so isn’t going to convince me. I appreciate it, don’t get me wrong. But I have to find a way there on my own.”
Brady heaved a breath. “Aw, shit.” He paused a long moment. “My sister? Really?”
Marco saw the teasing in Brady’s eyes and gave in to a small smile. He shrugged.
“You realize if you ever hurt her, I’ll have to kill you.”
Rising to his feet, Marco nodded. “I’d expect nothing less. But there isn’t another man on this planet who knows as well as I do how much your sister deserves happiness.”
Brady stood and held out his hand. “True.” They shook, and Brady playfully smacked Marco’s bruised cheek.
“Gonna have a shiner. Sorry ’bout that.”
Marco prodded his sore cheekbone. “Shit hurts, too, motherfucker.”
I hope you'll love Brady as much as I do! He's hot, funny, intense, and a total smartass! Can't wait to share more of him with you!
Thanks for reading!
