I would have recognized the tattoo creeping up his neck anywhere.
For years, I’d been slightly obsessed with the way it swirled
across his skin and into his hairline. I’d dreamed of tracing my
fingertips along the swells and patterns, chasing them beneath his shirt collar,
over his shoulders, and finding out how low the intricate design actually
I could have asked my sister, of course. She could have told me exactly
how far it snaked down the side of his body. But I’d never asked. I couldn’t.
Asking my sister about the tats on her boyfriend’s skin?
Just no. That would have been awkward.
So I kept my inappropriate curiosity locked away, tucked deep inside, and
never voiced it to anyone.
Then they’d broken up.
And I hadn’t seen him since.
But one glimpse of that tattoo across a smoky bar was all it took for
everything to come roaring back. The curiosity. The desire. The plain stupid,
ridiculous fact that the man curled my toes even from this distance.
Inappropriate. Inappropriate. SO inappropriate.
Tori nudged me. “Who are you checking out?”
I jerked and turned to face her. “What? No one. It’s nothing.”
She gave me the sort of knowing grin only a best friend could. Then she
peered through the crowd, past the waiters taking drinks and food to tables,

Concern puckered her brow. “Please don’t tell me you’re still harboring
that secret crush on him? It’s been four years, Mae.”
I knew exactly how long it had been. I’d thought I was done with the
absurd crush. Who knew it was just simmering away under the surface, ready
to explode back in full force at a single sighting? But sitting there, staring at
his broad shoulders and the way they tapered down to his narrow waist, it felt
like no time had passed at all. All those feelings I’d hidden from him, from
my sister, from myself—they all swirled through my system, turning happy
cartwheels because we were in his presence once more.
Traitorous frigging feelings. They needed to get their shit under control.
Tori let out a low whistle. “Don’t even bother denying it. It’s written all
over your face.”
I didn’t want it to be. I tried to school my features into something that
didn’t look like the heart eye emoji.
Tori’s concern morphed into something quizzical. “He’s not your sister’s
man anymore, you know. He hasn’t been for a long time. Jaye is over him.
She’s been over him for years. So, if you wanted to go there…”
A firm grip yanked the chair beside me out from beneath the table,
scraping it along the floor. I jerked, the sound shuddering down my spine like
nails on a chalkboard.
“Go where?” Jayela sat down heavily on the wooden chair and grinned at
