Exclusive Excerpt from Never Be Tamed
By Clare James
I love awkward scenes, and I think one is pretty funny. Enjoy!
My mantra played in my brain, dogs before dudes, dogs before dudes.
But my body chose to shut it down.
Yes, it might be time to do something about this dry spell. I’d lost all ability to act normal with humans. Well, human men. Hot, human men. But I needed to get my booty off to the work ASAP.
“Oh crap, sorry, I need to get moving.”
“Okay,” he said, his voice dropping an octave, along with the expression his face.
“It's just I'm running late for work. I've got to get these guys back in. But hey, thanks so much for grabbing Oscar. And I'm really sorry about your pants.”
I bent over to reach for Oscar, but slipped, my hand grazing my fantasy man’s crotch. On contact, my entire body went rigid. Could this day get anymore awkward?
Maybe he didn’t notice.
He cleared his throat and shifted his stance.
Oh, he noticed alright. I, on the other hand, pretended nothing happened and quickly latched the leash around Oscar’s collar, my face burning with embarrassment.
Never Be Tamed: A Steamy Bad Girl Romance by Clare James
Date of Publication: April 10, 2017
Falling for your sister's nemesis?
Only a low-life dog would do something like that, right? And that ain't me, not anymore. I mean here I am, trying to be a stand-up guy for once in my freaking life—I'm finally making smart decisions, helping my little sister, and getting my shit together.
For once, things are finally going my way…until Jenna shows up.
As soon as I meet her, I know she's the enemy. I've heard enough to understand that she's off limits. Banned. Forbidden. Not for me!
She's the bad girl I have to stay away from if I want to keep my family intact. So I try. Trust me, I REALLY try. But it's not as easy as you'd think, and surprisingly, I discover that she's not as bad as everyone says.
Of course, she's difficult, selfish, and a royal pain in the ass, but she's also gorgeous, smart, kind, and…well, let's just say I am that low-life dog. Traitor. Turncoat. And the world's shittiest brother.
Never Be Tamed is a hot and hilarious full-length stand-alone that can be read on its own or as part of The Impossible Love Series.
