CHASING ME by New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jennifer Probst
Quinn and James’ Story Continues in Chasing Me…
It was supposed to be a love story….
I knew she was out of my league but I didn’t care. Looking back, I wonder if I hadn’t pursued her, would things have turned out differently? Is it Fate that determines our choices in life? God? Free will? Or just plain old innate selfishness?
I got her, of course. There hadn’t been a girl I wasn’t able to seduce. Problem was she seduced me right back, body, mind, and soul. She possessed me, tormented me, and showed me a world that was so bright and pure I was almost blinded.
Didn’t she know after such a drug I could never settle for less? Didn’t she realize no matter how many times I screwed up, or broke her heart, or bent her to my will, I’d never be able to let her go?
If I hadn’t known such intensity existed, would it have been better for both of us?
True love, the real kind, isn’t nice and sweet and pure. No, it’s dirty, and sinful, and messy. It’s like ripping a chunk of flesh from your body and watching yourself bleed out in slow, helpless intervals until you thankfully pass out.
This isn’t a love story. But it’s the only story I got.

“I missed you,” he whispered in my ear. I shivered and clung tighter.
“Me, too. I hate when we fight.”
“So do I. Let’s not do it again.”
I laughed. My body lit up in its familiar way whenever I was in his presence, welcoming him to do any bad and dirty thing to me. But he didn’t. Just kept me close, as if struggling with something. I opened my mouth to let him know I went to the bar for a drink after work, and Brian had been there, but figured it would only upset him. No need to bring it up when nothing happened. Only if he asked. “Are you okay?” I asked softly.
He paused. “Yeah. Long day.”
“Is Ava still giving you a hard time?”
He stiffened and pulled away. Not meeting my gaze, he took my hand and pulled me to the couch. I fell onto his lap and snuggled in. “I can handle it. I’m almost ready to show you my new portrait. I’m excited about it.”
I pushed back his thick hair and peered at his face. I’d changed my mind about Ava, figuring she was one of those teachers who tortured the students who were really good, but his frustration was evident. I knew exactly how it felt to have a professor give me a hard time, and my endless goal to finally get her to like me. Having your entire career judged by one person was hard, especially when James already struggled with his confidence in his abilities. Probably best to not question him further and let him work it out.
I stroked his muscular chest. He smelled like clean cotton, and his soft T-shirt stretched over strong shoulders, making me feel protected and safe. When I looked at his art, I felt like he left a piece of himself behind, hidden. I adored being around such talent, because I had none of that stuff. As a Virgo, I was earthly, solid, dependable, boring. Not James. He was bigger and brighter, and made me want to savor every part of his magic. I tried to tell him that many times, but he laughed it off, saying I was the one who made him a better man. I hoped he kept believing it.
“You’ll be picked for the show,” I said confidently.
“Sounds like a fairy tale where everything works out in the end.”
“Don’t you believe in happily ever after?” I teased. “I saw you sneaking a peek at my Kindle last week. You like romance.”
“I like the sex parts,” he corrected.
I tickled him under the ribs, his one sensitive spot, and he growled and wrestled me to the couch. I kicked and screamed helplessly as he tortured all my sensitive body parts, until my cries for mercy were finally heeded.
I gazed up into his beautiful aquamarine eyes, cupping his cheeks, and knew we were meant to be together, no matter how many obstacles got in our way. “You’re my happily ever after.”
His face softened, and he kissed me long and sweet for endless moments. I fell into bliss and that wonderful bubble of emotion and need that lit me up and satisfied the hole in my soul.
“You’re gonna get a few orgasms for that remark.”
I laughed as he picked me up and carried me into the bedroom.
I pushed all thoughts of Brian and Ava out of my mind and concentrated on the man I loved, and our happily ever after.
