Make Me Sin by J.T. Geissinger
Release Date: January 12, 2016
Series: Bad Habit #2
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Chloe Carmichael’s life feels pretty sweet—she’s both maid of honor and florist for her best friend’s A-list wedding, things are getting serious with her boyfriend, and her flower shop is about to get a spread in a national magazine. But it all quickly turns sour whenever the best man, Bad Habit drummer A.J. Edwards, shows his face…his handsome, unforgettable face. A.J. is everything Chloe doesn’t want: tattooed, selfish, and all-around bad news. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?
Goody two-shoes Chloe isn’t exactly A.J.’s type, either, but the chemistry between them is undeniable. A.J. will be the first to say he isn’t a saint, but there’s something he’s not saying—something that would devastate Chloe. The only way he can protect her is to push her away, but the drummer finds he needs her now more than ever. When a wedding-day confrontation reveals secrets they’re both hiding, will Chloe and A.J. ever find their rhythm again?

The last time I saw Chloe Carmichael, she threw a glass of champagne in my face and called me an asshole.
I deserved it, of course. I am an asshole. To her more than anyone else.
Seventeen days later and here I am, standing outside the trendy flower shop she owns in West Hollywood— the sign above the green awning reads, “Fleuret, a bespoke floral boutique,” whatever the fuck that means— and I wonder what name I’ll make her call me today.
I wonder if it will gut me as much as it did last time.
“A.J.! Are you comin’ in or are you just gonna stand there with your dick in your hand?”
Standing under the elegant green awning at Fleuret’s glass entrance door, Nico looks impatiently back at me, where I’m lingering at the curb. Barney, Nico’s driver/ bodyguard, has just dropped us off, and his fiancée, Kat, has already gone inside to talk wedding flowers with her girlfriend. Why the fuck I’m here is anyone’s guess.
Oh, yeah. I’m the best man.
Two words that no one, ever, in any other situation, would use to describe me.
I take a final drag on my smoke and flick the butt into the street, which makes a MILF in a passing BMW shout at me from her open window. I flip her the bird and slowly make my way across the sidewalk, toward the entrance to my own personal hell.
I’m starting to sweat.
“If I had my dick in my hand, Nico, traffic would be stopped in both directions so everyone could witness the miracle of my enormous junk.”
Nico doesn’t even bat an eye. “If your junk is even half as big as your ego, brother, that is a miracle. Now get your surly ass inside this shop. And remember what we talked about.”
Right. I’d gotten “the talk” several times already. Pearls of wisdom along the lines of “You don’t have to like Chloe, you just have to get along for the sake of the wedding.”
Horseshit. I don’t “get along” with anyone I don’t want to get along with. Other people’s opinions of me count for nothing on A.J. Edwards’s Give-a-Shit scale. Which Nico, having known me for years now, knows perfectly well.
Another gem: “It really upsets Kat when you’re mean to Chloe.” Translation: “My woman has my balls in a death grip, she’s giving me mountains of lip over how you treat her friend, and I’ve lost all control over this situation. Please help a brother out.”
Tough shit, Nico. You’re the one with his stones in a jar in his girlfriend’s freezer, not me.
But the best piece of advice I’d gotten from Nico so far about the Chloe Carmichael situation? The timeless “If you can’t say anything nice about her, don’t say anything at all.”
If I took that advice, I’d be mute for the rest of my life.
Because I can’t say anything nice about her. I can’t say anything nice to her. I can barely even look the woman in the eye.
