When she’s forced to tutor bad boy football quarterback, Raven Davenport, she soon discovers all the things she’s missing in her relationship with Collin. Will she succumb to the temptations enticing her or will Collin be able to convince his sweet, innocent fiancée that his love for her is genuine despite his lack of affection? Ages 18 and up.

A Different Side, book 4


Copyright 2015 CM Doporto


I shut the door and jogged around to the driver side. I slid into the front seat and shut the door. We sat there for a moment in silence. I was afraid to make the wrong move and scare her off.  The only answer was to let her make the first move. With one arm resting on the steering wheel and the other on the console between us, I turned to her.

“Can I be honest with you?”

She pivoted in her seat and faced me. “Sure, as long as I can be honest with you.”

We exchanged a silent agreement as our gaze drew us closer together. Her sweet smell consumed my car and my chest ached. I hadn’t realized how much I missed her. How broken down I’d been without her in my life. Lexi filled my heart with a sweetness that made me forget about everything else. My eyes scanned over her beautiful features and then rested on her plump lips.

Damn, I wanted those lips on me.

All over me.

Right now.

And I was ready to get down on my knees and beg for her to please kiss me.

But I knew I had to be patient. Tearing my eyes from her lips, I stared deep into her eyes. “I’ve really missed seeing you.”

She breathed heavily and I saw the hesitation in her eyes. I needed to put her at ease, so she felt safe with me. Most of all, I had to let her know she could trust me. It might take some time, but I was willing to prove it to her.

My heart pounded waiting to hear her response. Did she feel the same way?

Her eyes softened and she said, “I’ve missed you, too.”

My heart danced to a new beat. A beat that Lexi created every time she was near me.

Damn, how much more can I take?

I reminded myself again to take it slow, let her call the shots.

“Do you remember what I told you in the suite?” My eyes shifted toward the stadium for a quick second and then returned to her.

Was she ready for The Raven’s trap?

Now that she was a free woman, I was more than ready to show her what my trap was really about. After a night with me, she’d never want out of it and I’d give her what she needed and more.

She shifted to the side. “You told me lots of things.”

I tried to hold back a grin. She either didn’t remember or wanted to flirt with me. I inclined my head and then rubbed my chin. “I’m referring to the point I made about me not doing anything unless you asked me to.”

Her eyes widened and she smiled. “Oh, that point.” She dropped her hand on the console and inched her fingers closer to mine. “Yeah, I remember.”

My fingers ached, eager to touch her skin, but I kept them under control. Slowly, our fingers brushed against each other and then locked together. The softness of her skin made everything inside me melt, rendering my arm useless. She paused for a moment and then said, “Raven, can I ask you to do something?”



The hunger in her eyes and the fullness of her lips told me what she wanted me to do. And I’d gladly do it. “That depends on what it is.” I caressed her flesh with my thumb, eager to feel more of her.

“Will you kiss me?”

A huge smile spread across my face. “I thought you’d never ask.”

I titled my head to the side, taking a moment to capture every part of Lexi’s beautiful features. She was gorgeous and I was totally awestruck.

How the hell did I get so lucky?

I wanted her to remember this kiss.

And every kiss after that.

I was ready to take those lips captive and show them what they’d been missing.

I moved closer to her, preparing to give what she wanted. I paused momentarily, teasing her just a little. “Are you sure you want me to kiss you?”

She nodded, totally speechless as her eyes zeroed in on my lips. Her lips begged for me, and I lured her in, capturing all of her breath. Gently, I pressed my lips to hers and her eyes fluttered to a close. I kissed her softly, tenderly, experiencing all of her sweetness.

And damn, was Lexi sweet!
