A little snippet 

“Why are we not in front of the house?”

A smile curls the ends of my lips before I grab my door handle. “Let me show you. And don’t you dare touch that handle.”

I push my door open and walk around the hood. After opening hers, I hold out a hand to help her down. She accepts and hops out, her boots sinking into the thick grass. I grab a blanket from my backseat before leading her to the back of my truck. I drop the tailgate and place the blanket down, and the whole time, Harper eyes me curiously. 

“What are you doing?” she squeals when I grab her by the hips and hoist her up, placing her on the edge.

“Showing you something, city girl.” My hands linger at her sides for a moment before I let them run down the outside of her bare thighs. 

We stare at each other for a long moment, a million different things passing between us in the blink of an eye. There are so many things I want to show this woman, so many things I want to do. I’m already smitten, and it won’t be long before she’s able to reach into my chest and grab my damn heart. 

I knew she was going to be trouble, but Harper Cassidy is the best kind. 

Finally, I hook a finger under her jaw and tilt her head up. “Look.”

Confusion mars her pretty face for a split second before she realizes what’s above her. A Texas night sky without a drop of light pollution. Ain’t nothing like seeing thousands of glittering little stars surrounded by pure quiet. It’s peace, even to the busiest of minds. 

“Oh wow.” She sighs, and it’s dreamy and full of contentment, making my chest tighten. “It’s beautiful.”

I nod, my eyes never leaving her face. “It’s a masterpiece.”

Her gaze stays planted on the sky, and after pointing out three constellations she’s only learned about but never seen, she finally gazes back at me. “I could get used to this.”
