Wild Love 2
Ils s’attirent autant qu’ils se détestent ! *** Casey Lewitt est l’une des plus grandes stars de Hollywood. Enfant terrible aux mille frasques, il se sort de toutes les situations d’un sourire charmeur. Mais après le scandale de trop, il a désespérément besoin de redorer son image. Alors il est envoyé contre son gré à Hawaï pour une mission humanitaire : pas d’alcool, pas de drogue et pas de fête. L’enfer ! Et le pire, c’est Alana. Aussi fière que coincée, la jolie bénévole le fusille du regard à chaque instant. Elle rêve autant de l’embrasser que de le gifler, et leurs affrontements sont électriques. Tous les coups sont permis ! *** – Pssst… Pssst… m’interpelle une voix derrière moi. Sa voix. Je fais semblant de ne rien entendre et continue de noter. – Pssst… insiste Lewitt avant de carrément me tapoter sur l’épaule. – Quoi ? lancé-je exaspérée. – Excuse-moi de te déranger, Blanche-Neige, me chuchote-t-il à l’oreille en se penchant vers moi, j’aurais voulu savoir comment on fait pour se retrouver avec les plongeurs. Parce que nettoyer la plage, ça va aller, les travaux d’intérêt général j’ai déjà donné… « Blanche-Neige ». Parfait. Hilarant. J’imagine que cette plaisanterie, digne d’un gamin de 6 ans, vise à me faire remarquer, au cas où je l’ignorerais, que je suis vraiment, vraiment très brune, et que j’ai la peau vraiment, vraiment très pâle. – On se montre suffisamment responsable pour arriver à l’heure en réunion, pesté-je à voix basse. On ne se pointe pas sur l’île à la dernière minute mais au moins vingt-quatre heures avant pour prendre ses marques. On essaye d’avoir un casier judiciaire clean. Ah, j’oubliais ! On passe son diplôme de plongée sous-marine, niveau 2 minimum. Pour l'encadrement de mineurs, c'est mieux. – Je sors à peine de taule, concède-t-il d’un ton narquois, mais j’ai un diplôme, niveau 3. D’après toi, ce sera assez pour faire oublier mes crimes passés ? – Il a son diplôme… marmonné-je pour moi-même. À quoi je m’attendais ? Il a probablement aussi son permis moto, bateau, hélicoptère, et monte à cru des chevaux sauvages au soleil couchant. – On peut savoir ce que tu marmonnes dans ta barbe ? – Tu vas te taire, oui ? m’impatienté-je. J’essaye de suivre ! – Très aimable, murmure-t-il avec une ironie qu’il doit penser irrésistible. C’est pas Blanche-Neige que j’aurais dû t’appeler, c’est Grincheux. *** Wild Love – Bad boy & secret girl, de Chloe Wilkox, volume 2 sur 9

A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school. When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy? Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
