I ogle him with his golden hair, bare chest, and board shorts, and my body thrums the closer he gets, the heavy ache building low within me.
“Good morning.” He wades into the water.
Before I can respond, his lips are on mine, kissing me like it’s been years. He pushes me backward, deeper into the water until I’m chest-deep and he’s holding me by the waist.
“Hi.” I’m dazed and breathless.
He smiles, kisses my cheek, and slips his hand under my swimsuit to squeeze my ass cheek. I copy him, wriggling my hand into his shorts and digging my fingers into the firm flesh of his ass. We laugh, and it’s then I notice the dark circles under his eyes.
“When was the last time you slept?”
“I’ve had naps here and there over the past few days. I’m exhausted. Eli called a break because he needed to see Crystal. I have the rest of the day. Can you play hooky with me?”
“I can’t.”
Sinking his fingers into my dry hair, piled high on the top of my head, he cocks his head to the side and purses his lips.
“I didn’t think so but thought I’d ask. I miss you so much, my beautiful girl.”’
He pulls me into his chest and kisses the top of my head. I sink into his warm embrace and try to keep the tears back.
This man never ceases to surprise me. I never knew how much I needed someone like him, until now. His lips peck at the corner of my mouth before he breaks away to study me. My eyes glitter with the threat of tears. Shit.
“What’s wrong? Fuck, did I do something?”
“No, not at all. These are silly tears of joy. I’m glad to see you. I miss you, too.”
He pulls me in for one more hug. “Come sleep with me for a bit.” He burrows his face into my neck, his moist lips sucking on my skin.
My heart sinks. “I can’t. I’ve got work.”
He groans, the rumble vibrating from his mouth to my neck and down into my chest. I shiver, holding him tighter.

Clutch by S.M. West is a slow burn romance about two people who meet just when they needed it the most. It almost seemed like fate. Both were in a place where they knew something had to change, but not sure how to make it happen.


Pansy is so ready for a change for the better. Her life is in shambles. She is tired of how others perceive her and is now ready to go down her own path. But she doesn’t exactly know what she wants to do, but she is determined to find her way. I loved that about her. Life may knock her down, but she gets right up and keeps going forward.  


I loved Silas! He was not perfect in anyway, but he was real. As part of Trojan, he is used to the rocker lifestyle, but lately, he has not been feeling that lifestyle anymore. He is ready for something different.


Pansy and Silas are both a bit lost when they literally collide with each other.  They had chemistry, but both had issues they needed to deal with. During their journey they become unlikely friends. I loved how they were there for each other and really helped each other grow both as individuals and together.


Clutch is a slow burning romance about two people who find love when they were not looking for it. It is sweet, but also has some drama that pulls you right in. I loved the characters and hope to see more of them.
