Spending Thanksgiving trapped in a hotel with a man I can't stand, really isn't my idea of a good time, but that's what's happening anyway.

I've hated River Santos since I first started working for the airline. I was warned to stay away from him by more than one flight attendant, my best friend included. River was your typical pilot: cocky, arrogant, and left a trail of broken hearts in his wake.

At least that's what I'd always been told. And so far, he'd done nothing to dissuade my negative opinions of him.

But one unprecedented snowstorm later and I find myself spending time with a guy I thought I knew, but didn't really know at all. I don't want to like him, but he's making it difficult. And we have more in common than I ever thought possible.

What happens when you stop hating your enemy and start wanting him instead?



“Sky?” His voice hung in the air between us like a cloud.

 “Uh-huh?” I mumbled in response, unsure of what he might say next.

 “Maybe tomorrow, you can tell me who made you hate me so much.”

I blew out a soft laugh. “Well, I hate you a little less right now, if that counts for anything.” He tried to close the gap between us, but I stepped back until I was pressed against the door.

His arms encircled my body, holding me in place, and I couldn’t stop staring at his mouth. Was he going to kiss me? Did I want him to?

Don’t do it.
Please do it.
Oh God.

“Well, I don’t hate you right now at all. I might even ...” He paused, and I wanted to scream at him to finish the thought.

“Might even what?”

He shook his head, clearly content with driving me out of my mind. “Nah. It doesn’t matter.” 

“I’m definitely starting to hate you again,” I said because I didn’t enjoy not getting my way. He leaned down close to me, his lips brushing against my ear, and I swore my knees almost buckled on the spot. I held my breath as he spoke. “I know how to make you stop. Just tell me, Sky. Who said it?”

“I can’t,” I said, hoping my words weren’t as shaky as my body currently was.
“You can. It’s easy. Just tell me.”

 “I can’t.” I swallowed hard, my resolve crumbling for no good reason other than his nearness. I waffled between keeping the information to myself and giving him what he wanted. His thumb was under my chin, gently lifting my face so I could focus on those blue eyes that I suddenly didn’t find myself despising.
