With one kiss she was his.
All it took was one look, one kiss.
The promises he made—I should have known better. He was a rock star and I had no time for a guy like him in my life.
I fell anyway.
I believed his promises. Held onto them and waited.
But the thing about rockers is that their private lives are never truly private. Seeing him on the cover of a national tabloid shouldn’t have surprised me.
Seeing him with two women all over him?
That nearly broke me.
Now the memory of that first magical kiss was TAINTED.
Kale released me, and Kin and Kassa were right there to surround me as he followed Jace, Gray, Cash, and Sin toward the stage.
I couldn’t contain my excitement. I was actually going to get to see Kale perform? I hadn’t realized how badly I wanted to see him in action until right then.
The guys took the stage, taking the instruments from the girls as they stepped back. Gray was on the guitar, while Sin and Cash both took a bass. Jace took the microphone from Roanna, commanding everyone’s attention, but mine was glued to Kale.
The blonde who had been on the drums said something that made him grin as she handed over the drumsticks, and then he took her now vacant seat behind the drums.
A small slice of jealousy hit me square between the eyes, but I pushed it down quickly when he turned his gaze back to the crowd and seemed to zero in right on me. I caught my breath at the hungry look he was giving me. Then he lifted the sticks and hit the drums like they were his to command, and I was lost. Lost in the music, the beat, and the way he moved so fluidly as Tainted Knights rocked First Bass one more time.
The words to the song went right over my head. The other four guys moving around the stage, playing their guitars, singing and playing up the crowd that was losing their damn minds, they all escaped me as I lost myself in watching Kale. If I had been wet for him before, that was nothing to how much I needed him right then.
