A Heart Not Easily Broken- Ebony's POV #2

Welcome back for a sneak peek into the third chapter of A Heart Not Easily Broken, Book 1 of The Butterfly Memoirs!

Chapter 3 takes us back to Ebony's POV. After meeting sexy bass guitarist, Brian Young, at a nightclub during a Girl's Night Out with her friends, and ignoring his attempt to get to know her, she figured she'd never see him again. Two days later, he shows up at her house, hired by her roommate to cut their grass. Discovering  there is more to the blue-eyed hunk than sexy hands on a guitar is an eye opener. How will she respond?

If your anything like Ebony was last week, your still fanning yourself!

Refreshed after a shower and wearing a pair of shorts and tank top, Ebony grabs a few bottles of water for Brian and the two young men working for him. She talks herself into ignoring her attraction by chalking it up to not having sex for six months. Outside, she hands Brian a water bottle and comments on how great the yard looks.

"It sure does.”
             I glanced at him. He didn’t hide the fact his gaze started at my bare legs and slowly traveled back up. His expression made his thoughts apparent. I started to open my mouth and comment, until our eyes met. His gaze sent a warm tingle along my skin, reminding me of the way I felt when he held my hand.

Girlfriend, you can't ignore what's meant to be for very long!

  1. Come on, she must have been looking too - it's hot work gardening. His shirt was off, right?

  2. LOL, Kristal, you are correct! I wanted to share that snippet, but in the interest of time and how many more Six Sunday post I could do, I had to cut it out. But I will share this part of the scene is between last weeks post and this weeks...ENJOY!

    Brian’s bronzed skin reminded me of a Greek statue, a testament of many hours spent working outside. His backward baseball cap hid the thick blond curls I’d seen at the club. The damp ringlets hung below its rim, accentuating his square facial structure and the shape of his nose. His blue eyes seemed to glow from deep within his skin.
    Brian was unbelievably sexy.

    One of the younger guys stepped into my line of sight, blocking my continued admiration of his anatomy. I bit my lip in irritation until Brian extended an arm. My eyes widened at the sight of tattoos over well-defined muscle. Intricate dark rings banded both biceps. How did I miss that? Oh yeah, his abs had distracted me. Curious, I stepped closer to the blinds, parting them. Damn, I couldn’t see the entire design. What was it?

    At that moment, Brian faced the window. He remained expressionless for a moment before he squinted, then smiled.


    1. Haha! Love it. Can't wait to read the whole book, MJ!

    2. Hey Ann! That's one of my favorite scenes in the book! Ebony sneaking a peek at Brian's tattoos through the blinds and him catching her in the act! It's all the motivation he needs in order to make his next move....Oops, did I just speak too soon? Come back next week to find out!

  3. She HAS to pursue this attraction! I like Brian so much - great excerpt as always. Can't wait to read the entire book.

  4. Glad you like it Veronica! Only 17 days left! So excited over here!!!
