Bee Carter is no longer torn between her handsome billionaire and her tattooed bad-boy biker. After enjoying mind-melting, world-tilting sex and experiencing the pleasure of waking in her man's arms, she has finally made her choice. Or has she?
A violent early morning confrontation pits biker against billionaire and results in a shocking proposal: the discarded man is willing to overlook Bee's wild night with his rival in order to win her love. He will sacrifice his pride, his heart, and everything he holds dear to have her. Bee is unmoved by the offer … until the man she's chosen encourages her to accept.
We pass in front of the complex’s small private park, the green space wedged between the buildings. Nicolas won’t be there. I push away my apprehension. It’s late in the day, and he’ll stick to his usual schedule. My luck isn’t that bad.
The gate swings open and the billionaire strides out of the park, his lean body clad in a form-fitting black suit, white shirt, gray silk tie.
Shit. My luck is that bad. I stop abruptly, Hawke bumping into my back. Don’t see me. Don’t see me. Don’t see me, I silently plead, my heart pounding.
Nicolas turns his head toward us. I catch my breath, dreading this confrontation. His gaze meets mine and his already grim expression becomes more severe. “Bee.” There’s a wealth of want and need in his voice.
“Nicolas.” I attempt breezy and casual, achieve high and squeaky.
Hawke, the possessive bastard, hooks his arm around my waist. I twist, trying to break his hold before Nicolas notices.
I fail miserably, a heartbreaking pain flashing across the billionaire’s handsome face. My stomach twists. He cares for me, considers me a friend, as more, and I’ve hurt him. “I—”
“Is this why you refused to live with me?” He curls his top lip, baring his teeth. “Because you were fucking—”
Hawke rushes forward, lifts Nicolas off the ground, and pins him against the wrought-iron fence, his hands wrapped around the man’s neck, the barbed wire tattoo encircling his bulging right bicep rippling.
“Watch your mouth, Rainer,” he growls, leaning forward, staring directly into his opponent’s eyes. “That’s my girl you’re talking to.”
He’s a brute, hell-bent on protecting me, not caring that Nicolas is one of the most wealthy men in the country. My nipples tighten, my body responding to the primitive power in his stance, while the more rational part of me recognizes the danger in this situation.
“Hawke, release him.” I hurry toward the two men, the billionaire’s reddening face alarming me.
My former marine’s grip on Nicolas’s neck tightens.
“Let him go.” I slap Hawke’s shoulder. He glances at me, his eyes wild, his jaw jutted. “I want to speak with him.” I have to explain the situation to Nicolas, attempt to ease the pain I’ve caused him.
Hawke doesn’t loosen his hold on the billionaire. Nicolas’s legs kick, his eyes bulging. The damn man will kill his friend because of me.
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
I rated Sinful Rewards 8 by Cynthia Sax FIVE LEAVES!!!
Mark my words, Sinful Rewards 8 will be my favorite in this series!! I felt so many emotions reading this novella. I felt connected to Bee in this book more than any of the other books. I feel that Bee has really grown in this series, and this one just showed she is a wonderful person and friend. She has "temporarily" moved in with Hawke and her friend Cyndi. Cyndi and Bee are going to have their own business together and I am so excited for it to work out for the girls. I feel like this will really make Cyndi grow up and give Bee a purpose she needs. "Friendly" makes an appearance again in this book and it also keeps us on the edge of our seat to see who it is! In this book, Bee basically takes Nicholas she is not the woman for her. I have a HUGE feeling this is not the case. I just feel like something BIGGER is going to happen and she ends up with Nicholas in the end. GOSH, I love this series so much and I am excited to see what happens in the next book!!
