Savannah Tripp’s life had been filled with athletic competition to the point she’d lost herself and desires.
Linc, Jace and Nash are from Savannah’s hometown and have worked on her family farm for years. Growing up around the blond beauty and watching her toned body as it glided across the water had filled all the guys fantasies, but she’d always seemed an unattainable princess in a tower above them.
Hard times have hit the prosperous Tripp family and Savannah’s in need of a ride home. The guys she’d avoided for years are her only hope, but as a storm bears down they find themselves in a motel with nothing but pent up desires. Savannah will soon learn that not only has she been the fantasy to all of them…one has always held a place for her in his heart, but will both their bruised egos come between them or will they discover love over Winter Break.
Savannah couldn’t afford a hostel, let alone a motel and she sure as hell wasn’t going to be sleeping in the same room with the dork squad.
“Yes Princess. It’s what us poor folk call travel sleepin’ places.”
“I thought your people just slept under a bridge, Jace.”
Linc and Nash chuckled and Linc pulled forward, proving he was right. The interstate was closed and they, along with hundreds of other stranded travelers, would have to hold up in one of the three hotels in Cooper. Nash went in as their representative and came out with his dimpled cheeks smiling.
“Got the last room. Thank God for my parent’s emergency credit card. Ya’ll owe me thirty bucks a piece.”
“Room? As in one?” Savannah balked.
“Yeah, don’t worry, Savannah. I’m sure there’s a pullout couch or we could get a cot,” Nash said as he grabbed his backpack and they all piled out.
Picking her bag with her toiletries and exiting the vehicle, Savannah began to fear she wouldn’t get a wink of sleep. The twenty-foot walk to the door froze her cheeks as snow and wind whipped against her face.
“But we’re still in the same room.” Savannah realized Nash needed thirty dollars and she couldn’t give him that. “Sorry I…this wasn’t in the plans.”
“Leaving late and having a stowaway wasn’t in the plans either, but we adjusted. Or did you think being in your presence is an honor?” Linc growled.
“I don’t know what I ever did to you guys—“
“Nothing,” Jace said, coming within an inch of her face.
The heat of his breath kissed her lips and she shivered but not from the cold. God he was hot. His smoldering good looks had driven her crazy since they were sophomores. She was so pissed when she learned her competition schedule meant the biggest meet of the year was the same day as prom. When he asked her out her panties became wet. Then anger took over because she couldn’t go and she had to tell him no. The boy who didn’t notice any girl had noticed her. That one guy in the school that made her stomach clench, flip and shudder all at the same time noticed her.
Now he was a man. Only an inch taller than her, but with a broad build and spice scent had her lubricating in anticipation. Under any other situation, she might have tried to go for the guy of her high school fantasies. But not with Nash with his dimpled cheeks and Linc with his emerald eyes… Besides, Jace Murphy clearly hated her. Right, fantasy gone.
“You’ve never done anything for us. We’re just a few of the many losers deigned to breathe your air.”
With that Jace and Linc walked into the motel while Nash wrapped his arm around her.
“Don’t worry, Savannah. He’s still a little hurt and you can’t help who you are.”
