Betrayed, The New Yorkers, Book I
Betrayed is the first instalment of my New Yorker series. The series surrounds the four most influential families in New York. Four men who had grown up as friends and were separated by love. They became enemies when two of them fell in love with the same woman.
It begins with the Kent and Ross families. The Kent son, Reno arrives from New York to take revenge on his father for abandoning him and his sister. Reno finds the goddaughter of his father Dennis, and has every intention of using her to get his revenge. But he didn’t account for Lisette being who she was. Crazy, beautiful, strong willed and mesmerizing. Reno falls hard for Lisette, but Dennis doesn’t want him and Lisette to be together. So Reno gives Lisette up in exchange, Dennis promises to help him find his little sister.
Lisette Ross had never been in love before. So when the man she considers the love of her life leaves her she turns wild. Striking deals with a devil that leaves her half dead.
Reno now has to choose between the love he has for Lisette and that of his long lost sister. Who needed him more?
Lisette had heard the word ‘yes’ and immediately her senses went into a celebratory rumba. She barely listened as he promised to make things special for her, what she wanted engraved in her mind and heart, was the moment she took a giant leap of faith and landed into Reno Kanaloa’s strong arms. And so she did.
Lisette got out of the car and walked round to the passenger side where Reno was waiting for her with open arms. She rushed into them and they held her in place. She felt liked she belonged there, like she finally found her place in the world.
“It’s dark down here and we are alone,” she said in a seductive tone. “I might let you take me to the back seat and sneak a peek under my skirt.”
Reno’s body shook as he laughed his laughter filling and bouncing off the walls of the small parking garage. “Its statements like that that can get a girl de-flowered.”
“Oh really.” she teased as she rubbed her chest against his.
She was his eyes widen in shock, and then they slowly grew dark as his breaths labored. Lisette took a startled step back when she felt his manhood come alive and press against her belly. “I think I should stop teasing you now.” she mumbled as she stared at the bulge of his jeans.
“I think that is a great idea.” Reno closed his eyes and steadied his breaths.
“Reno, promise me something.”
She waited until he had his eyes open before she spoke again. She needed to look into his eyes when he gave her this one promise; she needed to see if he was being honest with her. “If you feel like you are tired of waiting and you need to-,”
“But if you need to, please break up with me first. If there is one thing I cannot forgive is the breaking of trust.”
“I won’t.” Reno took a step forward and pulled her into his arms. He kissed the top of her head, before moving to her cheeks then her neck. “You are so tiny.” he mumbled as his lips smoothed against her neck.
Lisette rose to her tiptoes and angled her head so that he could get better access. What she didn’t expect was for Reno to lift her off the ground, and settle her on the bonnet of her car. He claimed her lips and kissed her passionately and hard, the hunger flowing through him and into her body.
She whimpered when he took a step back. Lisette put her hands on his shoulders and tried to pull him back in. But Reno took a step back and shrugged her hands away.
“I need a minute.” he gasped out. “You shouldn’t be so willing to give me what I want.”
Lisette watched as he struggled to get his body under control. She could feel a throbbing in her own body as her center pulsed with the need to be filled. “Maybe you should take me to the back seat and lift my skirts.”
“I think we should get going.” Reno started walking towards the parking entrance leaving Lisette behind. She watched him for a while and could see he was serious about leaving. She leapt off the car, run after him and hopped on his back. Reno’s hands secured her legs around him, and they walked to the parade in laughter.
