Saying I Do (Stewart Island #8)
by Tracey Alvarez
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 19 May, 2017
Marriage and happily-ever-after are for suckers…
Joe Whelan was fooled once on the way to the altar, and the Irish doctor isn’t about to be an eejit over a woman again. Especially not one who witnessed his broken-hearted humiliation years ago. He won’t be swayed by the sparks that fly whenever his eyes meet MacKenna’s or distracted by her sweet kisses. The only thing Joe cares about is preventing his sister from making the biggest marital mistake of her life.
MacKenna Jones loves a good wedding—so long as she’s sewing the bride’s gown, not walking down the aisle herself. Falling for Joe Whelan’s sexy bedside manner wasn’t on the cards, neither was a seven-day road trip with him to Las Vegas, the Marriage Capital of the World. When the stakes are so high, will these two gun-shy cynics ever say I Do?
Music thumped from the direction of the bottom apartment. Joe cocked his head at the synthesized beat, his lips curving against his will into a smile as he recognized the late Whitney Houston singing about wanting to dance with somebody. He glanced at the darkened top apartment, expecting to see Rutna—who was even tinier than MacKenna—shoot out of the front door in a rolling ball of fury at the music volume. But the song continued without neighborly interference, so Joe headed down the path.
All the lights were on inside the lower apartment, the living room drapes wide open. Joe got a perfect view of MacKenna clutching an imaginary mic and dancing around the room. She still had on the leggings from earlier in the day, but she’d lost the baggy sweater and instead wore a skimpy camisole. And Holy Mother of God, she’d ditched her bra. Less than ten seconds of watching her breasts bounce and sway as she moved in time to the music and he was rock hard, his dick being strangled by his compression shorts. MacKenna did some sort of twerking move, her perfect jiggling butt cheeks aimed at the window. He bit back a groan.
Was she trying to kill him?
MacKenna whipped around—still not spotting him gawping at her like a peeping Tom, thankfully—and scooped up a black cat from the armchair.
Oh. She’d been twerking for the cat.
The thought made the reflection of himself in the window grin like a loon.
Diablo, Mrs. Dixon’s chubby fur baby, who couldn’t be accommodated in the nursing home, lived with Holly and Ford part time and stayed part time with Rutna or whoever else would feed him. That Diablo would allow MacKenna to grab his paw and boogie another circuit of the room with him proved the woman must have some kinship with the sly feline creature.
Diablo, deciding he was done being a dancing queen, pulled his paw from her grip and lashed out with his claws. MacKenna swore, dropping the cat like a hot potato and cupping her boob in one hand. She also chose that moment to look up from the retreating cat to see Joe standing outside her window.
The window frame was above crotch level, so at least she couldn’t see the evidence of his lustful spying. He raised a hand in greeting then pointed in the direction of the front door. Her jaw sagged and “how long have you been standing there?” might as well have been stenciled across her face, but she strode out of the living room.Stretching the hoodie down over one helluva boner, Joe waited for the front door to open. Whitney had given way to U2’s Bono still not finding what he was looking for. Something he had in common with his fellow Dubliner.
