Leigh managed one small whimper of protest before his tongue slid into her mouth, and then she forgot about everything as passion consumed her.
Leigh cared about Drew more than anyone else in the world. Whenever she had skinned her knees as a little girl, he was the one who had teased her to calm her down while he carried her inside to clean her up and put on band-aids. He was her best friend and she told him everything, so when he went away to a university across the state, her whole world went topsy-turvy.
Now he’s back for Christmas break, and she’s so excited that she can barely stand it. But from the moment Leigh sees him, she realizes something has changed while he was away. The feelings she has for him now are very different than when he left, and very, very forbidden.
In desperation she throws herself at Drew’s roommate, and that’s when she finds out that she’s not the only one thinking the impossible. Drew doesn’t want anyone else to have her. His kiss is devastating and leaves her hopelessly torn. Can she fight her feelings for Drew, or will she follow her forbidden desires?

About the Author
It was all Leigh could do to keep calm while she waited, and she squeezed Mr. Bubblesworth, the ragged stuffed otter that had been her favorite toy for years, tightly to her chest to try and contain her excitement. That didn’t stop her from bouncing up and down on her bed and giggling with glee, though. Drew was coming home today—any minute now, in fact.
Her stepbrother had been away from home since August, and now Christmas was only a couple of weeks away. She had hoped to see him at Thanksgiving, but he had gone to visit his roommate’s family instead since they lived so much closer. He was coming home today, though, and for two whole weeks Leigh could see him whenever she wanted. After missing him so badly all semester it sounded like heaven.
She hadn’t really taken it well when he went away. When her mom and stepdad got married twelve years ago she had glommed onto Drew and been his pesky little shadow ever since. Oh, sure, they had their moments and even some knock-down drag-out fights over the years, but at the end of the day Drew was the person Leigh cared about most in the world. She was even closer to him than she was to her best girlfriends, so when he ran out of courses to take during his sophomore year at the local community college and got a scholarship to a university all the way on the other side of the state her whole world went topsy-turvy. Sure, on some level she had known that one day they were going to grow up and go their separate ways and things would never quite be the same again, but she just wasn’t ready for it when it happened.
For most of that first month Leigh hardly left her room. She was taking classes at the community college, and as soon as she got home in the afternoon she’d crawl into the bed she shared with her massive pile of stuffed animals, hug Mr. Bubblesworth as hard as she could, and cry her eyes out until she fell asleep. It was the worst case of homesickness she had ever had—far worse than the six weeks at summer camp when she was ten—and she was the one who hadn’t gone anywhere! They talked of course, voice and text and email, so there was never really a time when they were out of touch, but it wasn’t the same as having him there. Well, today he was finally coming home and she didn’t plan on letting him out of her sight for the next two weeks.
Tires crunched in the driveway and she peeked through her window just as Drew’s car pulled up the circle and stopped by the front steps. With a little squeal Leigh tossed Mr. Bubblesworth towards the bed and bolted from the room, already long gone before he slipped over the edge and hit the floor. She flew down the stairs and got to the front door just as her brother stepped inside.
He staggered back as she launched herself into him, her long legs wrapping around his torso while her arms slid around his neck, and then he regained his balance and spun her around with a laugh. As his arms went reflexively around her Leigh squeezed against him, soaking in his warmth and the familiar, spicy smell of his cologne. Her heart felt as though it was about to burst and her whole body tingled with excitement. God, but she had missed him.
“Well, at least I know there’s one person in the world that’s glad to see me. How are you, kiddo?”
“I’m great, now.”
She was, too. Maybe a little too great. The close contact with her stepbrother had her body responding in a very un-sisterly way—nipples crinkled hard and a sudden heavy throb between her legs seemed to echo her pulse. She hugged him one last time and then slid away, totally flustered by her reaction.
