Darren likes to plays the field, and has no interest in looking for a serious relationship. When he meets Tabetha, the sparks fly, and to his shock she agrees to sleep with him. But there's a catch, he has to promise it's only for one night, with no strings attached.
Don't make promises you can't keep. Once isn't enough, not for either of them, but that doesn't mean a relationship between them is going to be easy-not with vindictive ex-girlfriends, interfering fathers and the kind of misunderstandings that are bound to happen when you've only known someone one night.
“Tabetha there’s a couple of really cute guys coming this way.”
“Come find me when they give up and leave.” Tabetha started to stand.
“Damnit Tabs sit your ass down, don’t do this to me. Not this time. At least look at them before you decide to make your escape. Don’t you want to know what they look like?”
Slowly sitting back in her seat Tabetha sighed. “Which one are you interested in?” She asked with a knowing grin taking a sip of her drink so that Kathy wouldn’t notice.
“What? How? Damnit Tabetha don’t do that to me. How the hell did you know anyway?”
Tabetha put her drink back on the table and looked up at her very best friend. “You called me Tabs. You only call me that when you’re about to ask me to do something I really won’t like.”
“Please be nice to them.” Kathy never begged, this made her doubly curious.
Tabetha knew she was stalling for time. “Which one Kathy? I’m not agreeing or looking over until I know who I have to be nice to.”
“The blonde.” She said a bright red blush spreading across her cheeks.
Must be serious.
Tabetha thought swallowing back a grin. Wait a sec…
“Blonde but you never--”
Curiosity got the better of her; she had to check out this blonde. She looked over her shoulder and saw the most attractive male specimen she’d ever laid eyes on. He was tall, about 6”2’ if she was any judge, with the most stunning blue eyes she had ever seen, sea blue she realized with a start. His hair a dark mahogany color made the clearness of his blue eyes stand out even more. All bound together in a fit and toned package that made her want to run her hands and lips over every single inch. She wondered if he was properly proportioned everywhere. She felt the blush creep up her cheeks at the thought, and wondered briefly why Kathy would ever think he was blonde?
“Good lord that man is gorgeous.” She said swearing creatively.
Kathy smiled at her knowingly, “Thought you might say that. You were referring to tall, dark and sexy right?”
“You mean to tell me there was more than just the one?”
“Tabetha? Earth to Tabetha.”
Tabetha snapped out of the trance this man's appearance put on her when Kathy waved a hand in front of her face. There was something about him that appealed to her, pulled her in. She couldn’t put her finger on it, but right now she didn’t care. “I’m sorry Kat, remind me not to do that again. It’s like looking straight into the sun. You know you shouldn’t but you can’t seem to help yourself.”
