Savannah is a rich girl who comes from a troubled, loveless family. To make her childhood bearable, she was always tagging along with her older brother, Jay, and his best friend, Gabriel. After getting out of town for four long years while attending an out-of-state college, Savannah is back and the old schoolgirl crush on Gabriel she thought had dampened flames right back to life.
Gabriel grew up on the wrong side of town, in a poor Mexican family who may not have had money, but always had plenty of love to go around. Although he’s always thought of his best friend’s little sister as a little sister of his own, things have changed. Gabriel can’t help noticing Savannah is all grown up now. Single for the first time in years, with a two-year-old son in tow, Gabriel decides that maybe, after all these years, Savannah is grown enough for love.
Savannah shrugged and went back to her work. Gabriel stood and walked over to where she was, sitting beside her to help apply the sealer. “I appreciate you helping. I would’ve never been able to get this much done on my own. I only wish it wasn’t so hot.” Savannah laughed. “If you weren’t here, I’d be half-naked by now.”
Gabriel spoke before he had a chance to consider who he was speaking to. “Well, don’t stop on my account.”
Savannah looked at Gabriel again and set down her paintbrush. “Oh, would you like that, Gabe?” Her bright green eyes were teasing and laughter played on her lips.
“Oh yeah, kitten. That’s the only reason I came to help. Figured I’d get a strip show.” Gabriel didn’t look at her as he continued painting. Naturally, he assumed Savannah knew he was teasing.
Out of the corner of his eye, Gabriel saw a flash of movement and realized in horror Savannah was taking off her shirt. Averting his eyes, he cried out, “Whoa, Sav! I wasn’t serious. What are you doing? What if someone sees?”
Savannah giggled at his discomfort. Why was he so against seeing more of her? He’d been dreaming about it, hadn’t he? Yes, but Gabriel’s feelings were conflicting. On the one hand, he was so used to thinking of her as a little sister needing protection and care. On the other hand, Savannah was a grown woman now that Gabriel would love to get in bed.
