She’s saving herself for marriage.
Not if I have anything to do with it!
I steal bases for a living. Now watch me steal her v-card.
I’ll take it all, over and over, and she’ll beg me not to stop. You don’t get in the batting cage with me and expect to leave unscathed.
The minute Terra Harmon walks back into my life, I’m hard for her.
She’s always had that effect on me. She’s sweet, she’s innocent, and she’s my best friend’s little sister. She thinks she’s going to take over our pro-league baseball team. But she’s going to be so busy trying to keep her virginity intact, she won’t have time to deal with anything else.
One mistake, and I’ll slide into first.
One little slip up, and I’m going deep. Balls deep.
She wants to save herself for marriage?
She’s in the wrong game.
Turning carefully as the sunlight filtered through my bedroom window, I propped up on my elbow and reached out to brush a wayward blond hair behind her ear. My heart ached deep in my chest that she’d grow up without her momma. My sister’s little girl was now mine, and she’d be raised as my own as best I could. Being a single father for the last few years had forced me to grow the fuck up in certain areas, at least all areas other than women. It’s not like I could imagine a woman coming into my life and helping me raise Lyndsay.
“That tickles!” Her little voice surprised me. Big blue eyes looked up at me with an innocence in them that I knew I’d do anything to protect.
“What tickles?” I lifted an eyebrow and reached over to tickle the side of her neck. “This?” Her giggles filled up the air as I reached for her.
“No, Daddy! No!” She swatted at me and rolled off the bed, hitting the floor.
“Hey. You okay?” I moved quickly, ready to scoop her up.
She smiled up at me from the floor. “Yes!” Bounding up, she tickled my neck and ran off toward the living room, her blond curls flying behind her.
“You tricker!” I yelled playfully from the bedroom and got up. I ran my fingers through my hair and walked down the hallway to the kitchen. It was hard to believe Jannie had been gone for five years. Seemed like yesterday she was giving me shit about finding a good woman in my life. Too bad she never found a good man.
“What are you thinking about?” Lyndsay tilted her head to the side as she sat up at the breakfast bar, her little chin propped up in her hands. “You look worried.”
“Nope. Just trying to wake up. I went to sleep with a princess next to me and woke up to a frog.” I pinched the tip of her nose softly. “What happened?”
“A frog! Not me, Daddy.” She pulled back, shaking her head.
“No. You’re right. You’re much too pretty for that.” I walked to the fridge. “What does my girl want for breakfast this morning?”
“Pancakes, and eggs and maybe some bacon. Oh! And some sausage. And that ham we like so much, daddy. The really salty one.”
I laughed and glanced over at her. “Cinnamon rolls it is.”
She huffed and rolled her eyes. “Fine. I’m going to watch cartoons. Are we going to Mimi’s again today?”
“Yeah, baby. You know it’s baseball season right now. I have to be there when they tell me to.”
“I hate baseball season.” She walked toward the living room with her shoulders rolled in. I needed to find a damn day off to spend with her. The cute little thing had no clue that I was her uncle instead of her father. She didn’t need to know. That was the decision mom, dad and I made the day we buried my sister. It was better this way, and I was old enough and wealthy enough to take Lyndsay.
“Not that I could do it without you,” I mumbled to the empty air around me. My mom and dad had been more than helpful, and between the three of us, Lyndsay was growing up to be a bright, happy, healthy little girl.
“Dad!” she yelled from the living room.
“Yeah?” I pressed the button on the stove and walked to the edge of the kitchen.
“When are you going to bring home someone that can do my hair right?”
I put my hand on my hip and gave her a funny look. “Are you saying I’m not a good beauty shop lady or something?”
She giggle-snorted, the sound of it warming my soul. “Dad. We need a girl around here.”
“Well, we have one.” I pointed to her. “You!”
“Terra! Miss Harmon!” Someone from the media spotted me and all hell broke loose. Why weren’t they on the edge of the field, waiting for the guys to come off? “Can you answer a few questions?”
“Not now.” I smiled kindly and lifted my hand. “You’re missing the showdown on the field.”
“Terra, how do you feel about the recent news that you’ve been labeled the heir to your father’s ownership of the team in Seattle? Conflict of interest, right? Will you leave California and take over for him later this year or maybe before the next season starts?”
“My father is going to outlive us all. I’m not leaving Oakland anytime soon. Now, if you’ll excuse me.” I smiled and walked down to the dugout, wanting to find Paul to congratulate him.
“Wait! One more,” another reporter yelled behind me. “Is it true that you’re seeing Paul Thompson? Isn’t that against league rules?”
I ignored him and walked out onto the field. There was something almost majestic about standing on the crimson-colored dirt. It had everything to do with being raised by a man that lived and breathed baseball. After losing my mother when I was younger, my father stepped in and did the best he could.
“Terra.” Jake, our catcher walked up to give me a hug. “We did it again. Your boy pulled us out of a tight spot.”
“Speaking of tight spots.” Paul turned and smiled down at me. “How about we get out of here and go back to your place?”
Virginity jokes. Always. Paul waited with baited breath for me to let my guard down and offer up the one thing I had left to give on my wedding night. Good thing he wasn’t holding his breath.
Jake laughed loudly. “Oh, Fuck. That’s funny. Alright. You kids have fun.” He patted Paul on the back and walked off as the crowd grew thick around us.
“You did good out there tonight.” I let my eyes run over his handsome, rugged face. His dark blue eyes were filled with the same thing they always were – lust.
“Good enough to score some time with you?” He reached out and tucked a stray hair behind my ear. The girls in the crowd let out a girly sigh.
“I’m headed back to my place. Come over and I’ll fix you something to eat.” I crossed my arms over my chest, feeling a tad bit insecure with a zillion women crowding in to get a moment with my boyfriend. Something told me that each and every one of them would put out.
“And then?” He leaned closer, but I lifted a hand to stop him. I wasn’t into public displays of affection. We’d been dating a few weeks at most, and he tried every chance he got to show me off. It was like being a trophy wife to someone that didn’t wear your ring yet. I hated it.
“Steak or chicken?” I asked as I clenched my jaw. The man had no modesty, talking about our intimacy in front of a crowd of people.
“I’ll make you dinner! And then you can have me for dessert!” A girl yelled from behind me.”I’m good, Terra. I think the guys are going to grab a beer. I’ll see you later.” He turned and moved into the crowd of women, the smile on his face telling me that he hoped like hell I knew how easily he could and would leave me.
I turned and walked off the field, my insides hurting a little. I wanted to be promiscuous, to let my guard down and enjoy the carnality of life, but it seemed wrong to do with some jackass that wanted in my panties for a night. All of them were that way.
All but Danny.
“Right,” I mumbled to myself and pulled out my keys. “You offered yourself to Danny a million times, and he denied you.” I laughed bitterly, thinking back on my high school days. I’d been so deep in love with my brother’s best friend that I couldn’t have imagined life without Daniel McAdams in it. He was a good boy back then. “Oh, how things have changed.”
I got in the car and closed the door before letting out a long sigh. I needed to tell Paul to fuck off. I wasn’t going to be in a committed relationship if he wasn’t. The guys on the Oakland team didn’t just go out for beer and laughs. They went out and got shit-faced drunk and ended up in bed with someone. All of them that weren’t wearing a ring, and some that were. Paul would be no different.
It was a wonder that anyone on the team respected me anymore. I needed to fix things, clean up my image. Or maybe I didn’t. Maybe I just needed to let go of the hope that my first time would be with Danny and give in to Paul. He was hot as sin, and the times I’d hit my knees for him left me wanting to know how good it would feel to let him deep inside my body.
I let out a soft groan of frustration as I started the car. I was going to lose my mind if I sunk any farther down the dark hole of depravity I was headed toward.
