Wes put his chin on my shoulder. “What the hell is that?”
I put my phone down and turned to face him. “Nothing that concerns you.”
“Are you seriously sexting another guy while I’m in your bed?”
“What?” I raised an eyebrow. “No. Who the hell even says that word? That’s reserved for political scandals.”
“I’m saying it because you were dirty texting another guy while you had me in bed with you? Are you also sending pics of your boobs too?”
My mouth gaped open. “What the hell? Do you just think I’m some kind of slut?”
He groaned, propping up on his elbow. “No. I just know how guys think. If some dude is texting you at 1 AM it’s not because he wants to go out for tea and cookies. He wants sex.”
“And I’m sure you haven’t done that millions of times.”
“I’m not an animal, Val. I have a little bit more respect for women than that.”
“Says the guy who married a girl he just met in Vegas.”
He grunted, grabbing my phone and putting it on the table beside us. “I could have done a lot worse.” He placed a quick kiss on my cheek but let his lips hover just above it. “And I don’t regret it one bit.”
“I’m sure that’s not true,” I whispered, barely able to get the words out. Truth was, I was starting not to regret it either.
He pushed a strand of hair behind my ear before his lips trailed back to my cheek and then down my neck, his stubble tickling my sensitive skin. “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be right now than here with you in this bed. I could lay here forever underneath these fake stars.”
I sucked in a breath, unsure of what to say next. But the moment didn’t really need words either. He breathed into my neck as if he was inhaling all of me. Trying to make a memory of my scent.
We both stood there, breathing and making eye contact at our reflection in the mirror. That was the moment I knew I fell for my stripper husband."

The second instalment of Val and Wes is here and this book was super sweet! We are beginning to get to know both Val and Wes better and I must say I was so sceptical of Wes in book one that I now feel a little bad, the guy was nothing but a sweet gentleman in Wild Hearts!
Val and Wes are back in Chicago and staying at Valerie's apartment until they meet with the lawyer to sort out their 'situation'. But the lines are beginning to blur and feelings are starting to change. Val can see herself with Wes but she is still wary of his reasons for wanting to stay married.
Now, I thought Val was wild when I first met her but her room mate Paige is officially nuts. She holds nothing back and the results are comical.
Trouble appears in the form of a 'friend' of Val's called Max. Max only wanted Val in secret and only ever for a booty call but now that Wes is on the scene it's egos at dawn and Max wants more from Val but of course now I'm team Wes so Max can suck it!
Wild Hearts is a perfect stepping stone for the next part of the story, The Wild One and it will be from Wes' POV so I can't wait! We are being slowly teased and Val and Wes' relationship could still very much go either way.
This is a quick fun read and worth checking out. I have a new mission in life: to see the inside of a first class aeroplane bathroom ;-)
Wild Hearts is just .99 cents!
