I’ve seen a new side to Matt Connover. He’s proven to me that there is something inside him other than icy control and masculine force.
I’ve seen care… tenderness… even protectiveness.
I’ve seen vulnerability.
But Matt Connover’s issues run deep. I know Cal hurt him deeply, and he keeps himself protected because of that. I also sense there is something more to his pain that even I cannot comprehend.
Matt is struggling between what he knows and what he wants.
I’m struggling with boundaries and how to protect my own fragile heart.
This time I’m drawing a line in the sand and Matt can either step over to join me, or these Legal Affairs are finished forever.
Here we are again…right where we left off. Mac has fled to be by her mother’s bedside after an accident. Matt is there, like really there in the flesh, miles away from home, to be with her. Well this is something that I was NOT expecting from this man. We are graced with a different version of Matt, soft, caring, and sweet Matt.
“I lock eyes with him, and he’s watching me with an odd mixture of what I think is lust, but also compassion. It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen, and it unsettles me.”
“Do you want me to hold you until you fall asleep?” he whispers.
But, we all know that things have to eventually go back to the norm for these two. Angst and anger, mixed emotions, and tears all reign supreme this time around. Mac seems to be done with it all.
“I have to ask myself, What do you really want, Mac? Figure it out and go get it. And if you can’t get it, cut ties and run.”
I think this is one of the most rational realizations Mac has had to date. She does know what she wants and she will try to get it. Mac puts her foot down there and lays her heart on the line. What will Matt think, what will his reaction be??
“You’re a blessing, Mac…but you’re also my curse.”
Hmmmmmm, we are left intrigued once again! Tune in in another 2 weeks to find out more!!
