Welcome back to Mid Week Tease! This week I’m sharing another snippet from The Other Brother, a M/F steamy erotic romance novella which is a perfect quick read in between holiday tasks. It follows on directly from last week’s. I hope you enjoy it!
She pressed the button. “Hello?”
“Hi,” a male voice said. “Are you Melodie? Melodie Carr?”
“I am.” She frowned. A caller looking for her? Had she ordered something and forgotten about it? “Who’s calling?”
“It’s Patrick,” came the reply. “Patrick Brogan.”
“Patrick…” Gaping, she laid a hand on the wall to steady herself as the bottom dropped out of her world. Evidently, running to New York City—albeit under the pretence of a good career move—hadn’t been enough. Her past still followed her, trying to flood her with reminders of what she’d lost.
Christ, the man’s persistent. She never should have admitted her identity before asking his. She could have told him he’d got the wrong address and sent him away.
Not that it would have worked. There was only one place he could have got her details—her parents. Plus, she was one of the few residents who had a name next to her button on the panel outside.
“Are you there?”
Damn her parents. Damn her late fiancé’s brother. Why couldn’t they just leave her alone?
A moment ago she’d been craving a familiar face, and now there was one outside, waiting to get in. She should let him come up—it wasn’t his fault his brother had died, after all. He’d been as devastated as her.
She buzzed him in. “Come on up.”
