This Passover is starting to feel like the ten plagues might be coming back to haunt them before the weekend is over…one hilarious misstep after the next.
Gaby Fineberg just wants to get through Passover Seder without her “well meaning” family playing matchmaker. She needs a date, just for one simple meal—that includes singing, the history of her forefathers, and not one bit of yeast. The hot guy at her gym would be perfect. He probably hates bread, anyway, with a body like that. But when she finally works up the nerve to ask him…he doesn’t hear a word she said.
Levi Miller is deaf and happily single. Initially, he doesn’t know why this beautiful woman is talking to him, but it’s clear she needs help—and suddenly so does he. In a very complicated situation, Levi finds a simple solution. Gaby will pretend to be his new girlfriend to bail him out, and he’ll return the favor. But he didn’t bargain for a family dinner quite like this one…
While I may be an actual college professor, there is nothing student-teacher about my feelings for Gaby.
Sure, the whole student-teacher thing had an entire genre of fantasies from all genders, but that wasn’t Harry’s point. He handed his phone over as Gaby appeared beside him, standing close like a girlfriend would. He hadn’t a clue if she’d read the notes or simply knew her uncle, but he appreciated her timing.
And maybe he liked having her close, enjoyed looking at her. Her dress crisscrossed between her breasts, giving him a world-class view of cleavage, making her about the sexiest thing he’d ever laid eyes on. She shifted an inch closer and while their positions alone proved Harry wrong, he knew what he needed to do, ignoring that need and want had intertwined beyond separation.
Levi ran a hand down Gaby’s cheek, landing on her arm. Her head tilted up, tongue snaking out to moisten her lower lip, and all his blood pumped south. He hadn’t squeezed her arm yet, and they both knew what came next. He should check on their audience, but he didn’t want to risk breaking the moment. He wanted this kiss.
Her pulse raced below his hand as he gave her two quick squeezes. The world around them faded as he angled his head and pressed his lips against hers, then even rational thought ceased when she kissed him back.
Her kiss was akin to the most delectable cookie: sweet, addicting, and impossible to resist. He angled his head, taking more of her, one hand on her back. He didn’t pull her closer, though he wanted to. Some small notion of reality kicked him in the nads. This was for show, not to enjoy.
Oh, but how he enjoyed it.
Levi pulled back, watching Gaby to ensure she hadn’t changed her mind. She smiled at him, and he fought the urge to yank her back to him.
