I was falling, emotions first, in The Raven’s trap. And I didn’t try to stop myself.

Raven was undoing me piece by piece, knitting me tighter into his trap.

The Raven was shaping and fastening me into a hot mess. His hot mess.

I stepped out of the director’s office and entered the main area. Standing in all his six foot two glory was the star quarterback of our universities’ football team. I had never seen him in person, and I felt like a midget looking up at him. Even though I didn’t know him personally, I’d heard and read enough about him to know he was a womanizer and had a drug problem.

Another reason why I shouldn’t help him.

Hi, I’m Lexi Thompson and I’ve been asked to consult with you.” I made it clear that it wasn’t my choice to help him.

Lexi. Hmm, I like that name.”

Uh, no you don’t.

His full lips spread, revealing the most charming smile, coupled with a deep dimple on the right. Now I knew why every girl fell for him. But I was smarter than that. “I’m Raven.” He stalled for a moment, his eyes giving me a thorough exam to the point that I bet he knew what color my panties were. “Raven Davenport.” He ran a hand over his short buzz cut, and he looked like the perfect model for an Abercrombie and Fitch ad. Minus his T-shirt.

He was toxic and smelled of sex and drugs. Well, not that I knew what all that smelled like, but his aura beamed bright red warning me to be careful.

Are you ready to get started? Because we only have an hour.” I held out my hand, motioning to a small table in the corner.

That’s plenty of time.” He raised his brows.

I rolled my eyes and walked to the table. Taking a seat, I took out the agreement that Dr. Philips prepared. I signed my name, and moved the papers in front of him. “Please sign this.”

Raven leaned over the table. “I was thinking you might want to do this somewhere private.” A seductive grin spread across his lips as he pressed his weight against it, as if testing the durability of the wood.

My jaw dropped. Was he serious? My fiancé didn’t even tease me that way. Although that would’ve been nice. Then again, we hadn’t even made out on a bed much less on a table. I had to restrain myself from slapping him.

Excuse me, Mr. Davenport?”

He pulled out a chair and sat down. “You can call me Raven.” I guess by the tone in my voice he knew I meant business.

Please read the agreement, and let me know if you have any questions. I indicated we would meet twice a week for an hour and more if a mutual agreement can be established.”

Okay. Sounds fair. Do you have a pen?” He held out his hand. His long fingers curled up in a perfect cup. A hand that was made for a football and caressing various female parts.

Whoa! Where did that come from?

Extending my hand, I gave him my pen. He eased it from my fingertips in a gentle motion. “Thank you, Lexi.”

He signed the paper and handed it back to me.

Aren’t you going to read it?”

Shaking his head, he said, “No, I trust you.”

But you don’t even know me.”

Not yet.” His green eyes sparkled. “But my gut tells me we’re going to get to know each other real well.”

It was obvious why Lisa didn’t want to work with him. I made a mental note to call her the second he left. I sucked in a quick breath and let it out to clear my head. “Whatever.” With haste I removed my Hodge’s Harbrace Handbook and another pen from my backpack. I opened the folder Dr. Philips gave me and took out his papers.

I reviewed your file and—”

You and everybody else.” His head lowered and his shoulders sunk.

I continued, unsure of how to handle the comment. “I have an idea of where you need the most help with your writing.”

His head popped up and a layer of relief removed the downward slope of his lips. “You do?”

Yes. I think we should start with some grammar basics.” I opened the book to the first chapter and moved it between us. I placed one of his papers below the book, prepared to show him examples so he could relate easily to the concepts. “I’ll give you a quick and dirty overview of the parts of speech to start off.”

He moved his chair closer to me, and a fresh sent of juniper and bergamot swept over me. The guy smelled like a cologne insert from one of my magazines, and I tried hard not to breathe it in. But the more I tried not to, the more I loved the smell.

Darn, I wish Collin smelled that good.

He flashed me a grin. “I like it quick and dirty.”

I wanted to slap myself. Could I have used a poorer word choice? “I’m sure you do Raven. I mean, you’re a guy and a football player.”

True,” a half smile formed, “but not every guy likes to do things quickly or get messy doing them.”

A rush of heat inundated me. I yanked a hair band off my wrist and pulled my hair up in a messy bun. I raised the sleeves on my shirt and braced myself.

I’ll be damned if I let this jerk get to me.

Ignoring his comment, I pressed forward with my instruction. Raven listened intently and nodded his head while asking related questions. When the guy wasn’t being a big flirt, he was actually pleasant to be around. I felt sorry for him because he had gone through school without learning grammar rules. Then again, most people never make it a point to learn them and base everything on how people talk. No wonder the guy couldn’t write a proper sentence. The weird thing was his verbal skills seemed fine, but his written skills, well, that was another story.

Helping him might not be so bad after all.

After forty minutes of reviewing grammar syntax, he began to lose interest. He shifted his weight and yawned a few times, stretching his arms that nearly wrapped around me. I scooted to the edge of my chair, praying he wouldn’t rest his elbow behind me. Before he lowered his arms, his phone buzzed. His eyes widened with delight as he looked at the screen.

Excuse me, I need to take this call.”

Um, no, you can’t.” I pointed to a sign on the wall. “Policy says—,”

Hey baby, what’s up?” He answered the phone, ignoring me and the rule of no talking on the phone in the writing center.

He rambled about his schedule and practice for a minute or so before shifting gears. I contemplated if I should get up and tell Dr. Phillips. That would mean instant removal from the writing center and I wouldn’t have to help him. Then again it probably wouldn’t matter because the coach had called in a favor. I started to stand but stopped when the lure of his voice made it too hard to resist listening to his conversation. His smitten words rolled off his tongue and he sounded like Eros himself. Warmth rose from my belly, and I turned around to see who else was in the center. Luckily, Sara had already left and Kyler was talking to a student and not paying much attention.

Raven was having phone sex with the girl he was talking to!

Visuals flashed through my mind, and my face burned hearing the words he spoke. I covered my ears but it didn’t help. My heart raced, and my breath quickened. I shifted in my chair, crossing my legs tightly until my feet went numb.

Yeah, baby, right there.” He winked at me.

I gasped. “I’ll be right back.” I rushed out of the room and headed straight for the bathroom.

Closing the door to the lounge located next to the stalls, I paced the small room as I fanned myself. Being a virgin, I had never come close to experiencing anything so dirty but sensual at the same time. And the worst part, it wasn’t even directed at me! The guy was blessed with sexual creativity. Why the heck didn’t he use some of that imagination and gear that toward his school work?

Sure, I had read those types of sex scenes in romance books, but it was entirely different hearing them firsthand. Well, second hand in this case. But nonetheless, I had just become hyper aware of tingles and sensations caused by an actual human being.

By a guy that was sitting next me.

And the saddest part, it wasn’t Collin.

I sighed as I collapsed onto the cushioned bench. The situation wasn’t good, and every warning light was flashing.

Reason number 3 — don’t lust over something that isn’t yours.
