About MEANT FOR YOU
Will Connor lives his life by simple rules: take care of those he loves, give one hundred percent to his job, and never ignore his instincts. So when he meets Paige, he doesn’t plan to ignore their crazy chemistry, or the way her pretty smile strips him of all defenses…
As the development director of a nonprofit, Paige Lamonica has met her fair share of people. But Will is something else entirely. The sexy detective is a little too confident. With sculpted muscles and a chiseled jawline, he’s also far too easy on the eye. She loves that he goes toe-to-toe with her at every turn.
When Will asks her to attend his sister’s wedding with him, Paige thinks he just wants to throw some relatives who want to play matchmakers off his scent.
She couldn’t be more wrong. Will wants her.
When she teases him, he teases her right back. When she pushes his buttons, he repays her with dangerously hot flirting…and even hotter kisses.
As they spend more time together, Paige discovers there’s more to Will than she thought. With every layer she peels away, she craves more…
But as the daughter of an Army man, Paige has never wanted to get involved with someone on the force.
Can Will persuade her to explore their growing connection with him?

When he moved past my knee, I lost the battle. He smiled, as if he knew exactly the effect he was having on me, watching me intently. He’d trapped me with those sinful brown eyes. I couldn’t look away even if I wanted to.
“How do you like this, Paige?” Will whispered.
“You’re driving me crazy,” I whispered back. My entire body was tingling, even though he was only touching my leg. And the pressure between my thighs was intensifying. I couldn’t see what he was doing, but I felt every callus on his fingers.
“Good, that’s exactly what I’m going for.”
I inhaled deeply through my mouth, exhaling through my nose. If Will Connor thought I couldn’t push his buttons even when I was at his mercy, he was in for a surprise.
“If you continue to go so slow, you’ll never reach high enough to check if I’m wearing any panties.”
Victory! Oh, yeah. Will clenched his jaw, his hand tightening on my thigh.
“Paige,” he warned. His voice was breathier, which gave me immense satisfaction.
“You were saying, Detective?”
He wiped the sass right off my tongue when his hand moved higher.
“Tell me if you’re wearing any.”
“What if I won’t?”
His hand inched higher. He was going to call my bluff. The others wouldn’t know exactly what was happening under my skirt, but I would. When he moved his hand higher still, I relented. He was only halfway up my inner thigh, but I couldn’t risk it.
“Fine, yes. Yes, I’m wearing panties.”
He gave me a smile that left me feeling as if my lacy, barely there thong had caught fire. “What kind?”
“Will Connor, I am not going to describe my underwear to you.”
“Then I’ll check for myself.”
“I’d like to see you try.”
I knew it was the wrong thing to say a second after I spoke. Will’s smile turned wolfish. Holy shit, I’d never met a man willing to go toe-to-toe with me. So, I was surprised when he let go of the garter, which made a tiny snapping sound as it touched my skin. When Will pulled back his hand, I felt a little foolish, realizing he couldn’t have called my bluff. He couldn’t very well look up my skirt in a room full of people.
The guests clapped and cheered, and I stood up, rolling my dress up so everyone could see the garter. I knew that would get a rise out of Will. Looking sideways at him, I wiggled my eyebrows. That hot and possessive look he gave me in return? It could have melted Antarctica.
