(this book was originally posted on Wattpad, this chapter contained the song Closer by Nine Inch Nails. Feel free to play it at the prompt) 😂.


Third-person POV

Alex made a mistake missing the look all the guys shared. Maybe she would have decided to leave right then. Maybe she would have decided to stay away. But it was too late anyway. But the guys also didn't know the secrets Alex held or what she was truly capable of. Everyone has demons and it is well to remember that.


Alexa's POV

As I brushed some hair behind my ear, I was met with another cup being trusted towards my hand. Following the hand that held the cup, I was met with a pair of vibrant green eyes.

"Hi there, I'm Nason, it looks like your cup is empty. Would you like another drink?" said the owner of the breathtaking eyes.

"Umm.. Hi, Sure, thank you" I acknowledged while giving Nason a sweet smile.

He looked like your typical boy next door. Well man next door, he was certainly not a boy. He had the most beautiful green eyes I had ever seen. Like the color of grass in spring. His hair was a rich chocolate brown in color and straight. He had that just crawled out of bed hairstyle going on.

Nason clearly had a boyish charm about him. His facial features looked soft minus the stumbled that was along his chin. I noted that he had the most beautiful smile and dimples. His lips were plump and looked so soft. He too like the others looked like he was mostly muscle.

These guys definitely spend some time on physical fitness. I didn't like exercise. I preferred to just go for walks in the woods or on hikes.

Nason was so close to me that I could smell the fragrance of his cologne. It was an intoxicating scent. I could tell Nason was a charmer. I was sure he could just about charm the panties off any girl he wanted.

I reached for the cup in Nason's hand and took a drink. He flashed me a sweet smile that showed off his dimples and his perfect white teeth.

"Let's get this party started, " Damon yelled and someone finally cut the music back on.

(Play the song now if you want).

I heard the volume of the music steadily increasing. When I realized what song it was playing, I blushed at the lyrics. I looked around the room and seen that Evan was standing by the stereo system with a remote in his hand.

It was the first time I noticed that he wasn't staring at me. As he laid the remote down he looked up and locked eyes with me.

Making me suddenly feel breathless from the intensity of his gaze. My lips parted slightly trying to take in more air. My lips felt dry, so unconsciously my tongue darted out to wet my lips.

Evan noticed this as his eyes flickered to my lips. I watched as the slightest smirk appeared on his face.

I unexpectedly felt an uncontrollable urge to kiss Evan's lips. I wondered what he would taste like, what his lips would feel like against mine. I didn't know what had come over me. I had never had sexual thoughts about anyone due to the years of sexual abuse by the hands of my father.

I suddenly started feeling warm. No not warm but hot. And aroused, at least I think aroused. I didn't know why. Why was this happening? I had never felt this way before. I was fine just a few minutes ago. It must be all the testosterone in the room. Yeah that had to be it.

I glanced around the room and noticed that some of the guys had started playing video games again. Landon had gotten up and joined them.

I fanned myself with my hand. I was feeling so hot. I could feel myself starting to sweat just a little bit. I took my hair down and put it back up since some had fallen down.

I needed to cool off. I noticed a fan over by the couch closer to the tv. So I decided to go sit down closer to it.

As I sat down I took another drink of my drink and looked to my left. Adam was watching Landon and Nason play call of duty. I loved C.O.D. I used to play it with Chase all the time before his accident.

"Hi, I'm Adam, welcome to the neighborhood," Adam said his voice deep and gravely. He had taken me by surprise.

"Hi, it's nice to meet you" I replied my voice coming out lower than I intended. I gave Adam a warm smile. But it felt forced because I was still feeling hot and aroused.

Adam grabbed my hand and placed a kiss on my knuckles. I let out a small gasp in surprise. Adam winked at me.

Adam had dirty blonde hair and grey-blue eyes. He looked like your typical bad boy. He was wearing a sleeveless shirt and I couldn't help but to notice his arms thick with muscle. Both his arms were covered in tattoos. And he even had some on his neck. I was sure he had more under his shirt. I wondered what he looked like without his shirt.

"So you just moved in, huh? How are you liking Arizona?" Adam inquired while turning a little to face me.

"Yeah, just moved in today actually. And I'm not sure yet, haven't had the chance to go explore" I muttered while fanning my face.

" It's a great place here, truly, just be careful about going out on your own. You never know what kind of people you might run into." Adam replied sitting back in his seat.

"I'll be careful, thank you" I muttered.

Adam gave me a nod and turned his attention back on the game as Landon accused Nason of cheating.

Is no one else hot in here? I thought

"Dance with me, Belle" Damon whispered huskily in my ear making me jump. He had startled me. I didn't even know he was behind me. His warm breath was fanning on my neck and it was only making me hotter.

What the hell is going on? Why am I so hot and turned on?

"Will you dance with me?" Damon whispered again his soft lips grazed my neck. I could feel my panties dampening.

I noticed Evan leaning against the wall drink in hand watching me with such intensity. His gaze only caused me to become more aroused.

Damon ran his fingertips lightly down my arms. Leaving a trail of fire and giving me goosebumps. Causing me to bite my lip.

"Cat got your tongue, Belle?" Damon whispered as he started placing soft open mouth kisses on my neck.

I squeezed my legs together trying to relieve some of the ache I was feeling.


Third-person POV

This action didn't go unnoticed by the guys. Especially Damon, Evan, and Adam. Landon and Nason had both glanced over to watch the little show. Samuel was also watching. But Alex didn't notice.


Alexa’s POV

I could feel my panties getting wetter. My breathing was coming out faster in short pants. I still felt like I couldn't get enough air in my lungs. I couldn't figure out what was going on with my body. I honestly couldn't even think straight.

And with the way that Evan was looking at me and Damon was touching me wasn't helping.
