excerpt

“This is exciting.”

He plopped them both down, and Lexi curled into his arms while he surfed the channels for something sports related. With a football-classics channel on in the background, he tied her hair around his finger and watched her smoky eyes flutter open and closed. “So exciting, you’re falling asleep.”

“Stop it.” She turned in the crook of his arm. “You get to play cops and robbers all the time. Sugar does. Everyone does. I think it’s neat even if I just get to sit in a car and listen to my girl babble about her spot-on gut feeling. It’s something different.”

Parker pressed a kiss to the top of her head. “Just be careful.”

“How much trouble can we get into watching a guy grocery shop or whatever?”

His rumbling laugh met hers. With Sugar, they both knew the answer.

“Alright. Of course we’ll be careful.”

“Good.” He let go of a piece of her platinum-blond hair. “Go to sleep, and I’ll carry you to bed.”

Lexi turned over on her chest. “Why am I going to sleep?”

“Uh… sports? Because your eyes are shut?”

“I’m a full-fledged spy girl now.”

“Alright, spy girl. You don’t need to sleep.”

“Maybe I do. Either way, I know this isn’t technically how you guys scout your new team members. But really, Sugar was going stir-crazy. She needed to feel as though she was still important to your team.”

“Of course she is.”

“I just kind of know that there’s something unexplainable about being pregnant and having folks handle you with kid gloves. It has to be a first for her.”

He cackled. “No one’s treating her any different.”

“Bull. Even Sugar’s treating herself different.” Parker squeezed Lexi tight. “We take care of our own.”

As she snuggled into his chest, her previous life seemed a thousand miles away, yet she knew he was dead serious. “I love you, and I love being part of your world.”

“It’s not just this job, Lex. Or what you do for Jared behind a computer screen.” He kissed the top of her head. “You are our world. Once you’re in, you’re in. Titan for life.”
