A Sneak Peek at “Irresistible”

A Sneek Peek at “Irresistible”


“This is it,” he said with flourish as he opened his bedroom door only to have the damn thing get stuck on the disturbing towel that he’d used this morning.

Throwing her another one of those reassuring smiles that was starting to make him feel like a jackass, he discretely shoved the door harder as he tried to kick the towel out of the way until the door finally flew open and-


Slammed into the wall, breaking the doorstopper in half and allowing the doorknob to embed itself in the wall and officially making the very long list of things that he needed to do, which he couldn’t help but notice had tripled since this morning. Hoping that she hadn’t noticed, he gestured for her to go inside.

He wasn’t really surprised when she leaned in, took a good look at his bedroom and shook her head before turning around and making her way back to the front door. Since letting her leave would only be counterproductive to his plans, he quickly caught up to her, wrapped his arm around her slim shoulders and turned her right back around.

“I think you’re going to like this,” he murmured as he kicked the towel out of the way and brought her inside the room that would be hers until he finished cleaning up the other apartment. For a moment he considered giving her this one and moving in upstairs with his brother, but quickly dismissed the idea.

“And why would you think that?” she asked, sounding genuinely curious as she took in the room.

“Because it’s spacious?” he suggested, taking in the room filled with half-empty boxes, dirty laundry, discarded food wrappers, the messy bed, and wondered if she’d be willing to step out into the hallway for a minute so that he could clean this up.

But, he knew that if he gave her even half a chance that she would leave and since that would only make things more difficult, he lead her to the bed. “Why don’t you have a seat?” he suggested, giving her an encouraging smile.

When she just stared up at him, he mumbled, “Right,” nodded to himself, and made quick work of picking up all the shit on the floor and shoving it into whatever box was closest. In a few minutes he had the floor picked up, all his shit shoved into random boxes, and the bed somewhat made.


“So, the bathroom is right through here,” he said, cutting her off as he opened the bathroom door and flicked the switch only to remember that the light was out, which in retrospect was probably for the best.

Shifting in front of the bathroom, he closed the door, hoping that she hadn’t caught a glimpse and said, “So, that’s it. Any questions?”

“I think I’m going to stay with my parents,” she announced, already heading towards the hallway and making him hesitate.

He should let her go, but he couldn’t do that.

She was having his baby and having a hell of a time doing it. He hadn’t been there for the first six months, but he’d be damned if he missed the next three. With that in mind, he followed after her, surprised that she’d managed to make it down the hallway so fast. Then again, with the way she was carrying he was guessing that gravity was a helping factor.

“Melanie, wait!”

“Look,” she said with an exasperated sigh as she turned around to face him, “I know you don’t want this baby, which makes me really appreciate what you’re offering here, but let’s face it, neither one of us wants this.”

“It doesn’t matter what we want,” he said, because he wasn’t going to lie to her and tell her what he thought she wanted to hear.

She was right. He didn’t want a child, but that didn’t matter, because they were having one. Just because he’d never wanted a child didn’t mean that he wasn’t going to step up and do the right thing. He was going to be a father to his son and take care of both of them. It was as simple as that and he couldn’t do that if she didn’t give him a chance.

“I don’t know you and honestly, I’m not really sure that I like you,” she said, deciding to go the honest route as well.

    This isn’t on kindle and I can’t find it at Barnes and noble. I have been waiting for this book to read and I need it in my life like yesterday. Where can I find this?!

      Hi, Lena,
      Aidan’s book took a serious hit in 2017 when my computer decided to erase four months of work. It caused a lot of damage to other books, forcing me to spend quite a bit of time last year fixing it. The other issue is that the book is too serious for a NFH novel. I have been playing with it, trying to get it back where it needs to, but I am missing something. For right now it’s on hold until I can figure it out. Worse case scenario, I delete the entire book and start over. It’s not something I look forward to doing, but if it needs to be done then I will do it, because I refuse to publish any book that I am not in love with. I apologize for the wait. Until then, I am working on another NFH book, The Promise.
