Teaser Tuesday: Playing for Keeps

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page

She's in love with him.
He's trying not to love her.
One night changes everything.

Aston Banks never meant to get close to Megan Harper – not even for that one night. Haunted by a childhood he refuses to face, he knew she could break through every wall he’d ever built and tear them down without even realizing she was doing it.

Betraying Braden by starting a relationship with Aston wasn’t on Megan’s to-do list, but the second she sees a glimpse of someone other than the arrogant ass she’s come to know, she can’t walk away.

Aston’s childhood is worse than Megan ever guessed, but as he tries and fails to push her away, it’s clear her love is stronger than the demons that cling to him every day. And now, because of it, he finally has to deal with what he’s buried deep down.

What he doesn’t want to face. What he’s fought against for so long.

And they have to do it all without Braden finding out.

Keeping a relationship secret has never been harder

 "What?" I hiss.
He chews on the end of his pen.
"Are you avoiding me?"
"I´m sitting right next to you, douchebag. How the hell can I be avoiding you?"
"Would you be sitting here if you didn´t have to?"
"No, I wouldn´t. But the same applies to every time I have the utmost pleasure of sitting next to you, so don´t think today is anything special."

LOL, the one thing I thought of when I read that quote was "Geeze, I hate it when people chew pens." I think that makes me a total dork.
