Smolder:A Devil Chaser's MC Romance(7)

By: L. Wilder & Brooke Asher

I’d always loved Ace’s club. That’s one of the reasons I’d started dating Gage. I’d missed being around all the motorcycles and the feeling of family, but Gage’s club was nothing like the Devil Chasers. They were not nice men, and most of them gave me the creeps. Actually, I was always glad Gage stayed by my side while we were at the clubhouse. I’m such an idiot. I should have known then to get away from him and his stupid club. He was just so sweet and attentive, not to mention, hot as hell. He was at least a foot taller than me and built like a linebacker. He was always working out, lifting weights, or running. His hair was dark blonde, almost brown, and he had amazing green eyes. When he smiled, it made me weak in the knees. He seemed to have it all. Too bad he was bipolar and almost killed me.

I couldn’t even see him by the time he walked out of my apartment. My eyes were swollen shut, and I’m pretty sure my head was bleeding from where he kicked me with his boot. I just laid there in the floor praying that someone would come find me. I was in and out of consciousness, but luckily I didn’t have to wait long. The police came rolling in my front door with a thunder. My sweet, nosey neighbor had called them when she heard me screaming. I could hear her telling them to be careful with me. She’s such a sweet thing. I think I’ll bake her some cookies or something when I get back home.

I have no doubt that Renegade will be here first thing in the morning. It’s going to be hard to see him. I’ve missed the way that he always looks at me. His brown eyes are so intense, and my body tingles all over whenever he’s around. I’ve always had a thing for him. I could just never get him to admit that he felt the same way. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe he could care less about me. It might all be in my head, but I swear I see something more when he looks at me. His body tenses up every time I touch him. He almost looks like he’s in pain when I put my arms around him for a hug. Sometimes, I would find myself touching him just for the hell of it. I wanted to see if I could still get a rise out of him.

I fell asleep thinking about the time he took me for a ride on his bike. He surprised me by taking me out to one of his favorite places by the lake.

Three years ago….

“Where are you taking me?” I asked Renegade.

“You’ll just have to wait and see. You know you’ve never been very patient, Taylor,” he said with a chuckle. He was always giving me a hard time about not being able to wait for things. It drove me nuts.

Today, I decided to make him pay for giving me a hard time. I slowly moved my hands from his waist and moved them lower down the side of his leg. I let them roam across the top of his thighs as I pressed my breasts against his back. I could feel the muscles in his body become tense, and I couldn’t help but laugh at his reaction. He grabbed one of my hands and put it back on his side.

“Be still! You are gonna make me have a wreck, and I’ll never hear the end of it from Ace.”

“So you’re saying I’m distracting you?” I said laughing.

“Don’t push me, Taylor. Just sit back and enjoy the ride, or I’m taking you back to the house.”

“Damn, Noah, you’re no fun. Always so freaking serious.” I could see a hint of a smile when I called him by his real name. I didn’t do it often, but I liked calling him by his given name. It was like a secret that he only shared with me.

We rode quietly until we reached a small clearing by the water. Renegade pulled the bike up close to the edge. It was almost sunset by the time we made it to his special place. I was surprised that I’d never seen it before. I’d been to the lake every summer for years and never noticed it. We were parked up on a cliff looking down on the water, and the sun was beginning to set. The bright orange colors of the sun were reflecting off of the water. It was quiet, and no one was in sight.

“This is really beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like it before.”

“I like to come up here to clear my head. Not many people know about it.” He took a moment to look around and said, “I’d like to build a house out here someday.”

“It would be an incredible place for a house! You should absolutely do that. I’ll even come help you decorate when it’s done. That would be so much fun!”
