Crazy Stupid Love
A Bad Boy Romance Novel
I want him…
Unlike I have ever wanted anything before in my entire life.
I knew it from the very moment his eyes met mine; the way my skin burned under his dark gaze.
I knew nothing would ever be the same again.
Decklan Taylor isn’t just tempting, he’s dangerous; a storm who destroys everything in his wake. But even as I stand in the path of his force I can’t turn away.
While he may be the very thing that breaks me, he’s also the only thing that has ever made me feel alive.ry thing that breaks me, he’s also the only thing that has ever made me feel alive.
My eyes land on a pair of black boots first, then dark ripped jeans as they climb higher. A white fitted v-neck shirt clings to his torso revealing rippling muscles below the thin fabric causing me to take a shaky breath as my eyes continue upward.
The moment the man’s face comes into view all the air leaves my body. His full lips wrap around a cigarette held loosely in his hand as he takes a hard drag, smoke billowing from his mouth seconds later.
I am immediately drawn to his wild sexy hair, the way the dark blonde strands are pushed to the side haphazardly with a large chunk falling in front of one of his eyes. His jaw is strong and prominent, even hidden below the mass of short dark stubble that covers his incredibly handsome face.
He takes another drag of his cigarette, completely oblivious to the fact that I have not taken my eyes off of him. I don’t know what it is but just looking at him rattles me. It’s not his looks, the attraction is obvious, it’s more about his presence; how even though he’s standing completely alone he seems to command the very world that surrounds him.
He lets out another smoky exhale before dropping his cigarette to the ground, crushing the burning tip under the sole of his boot. Flipping his eyes to the side, the moment they meet mine I feel like I have been transported to some alternate reality; the ground beneath me seeming to shift on its very axis.
His deep gray eyes study me for a long moment, the air so thick between us I feel like I might suffocate under the weight. I open my mouth, not at all sure as to what I plan to say but before I can even muster up the courage to speak he breaks the connection; turning his eyes forward as he pushes away from the bike and heads back inside the bar.
