I rise and slowly lower one side of the blanket off my shoulder. “What if they printed this in the tabloid, would that bother you?”
“Hadley.” He frowns.
“No?” I ask playfully. “Really, this wouldn’t bother you?” I lower the blanket just a bit more, exposing skin I know he’s way more possessive of than he wants to admit aloud.
He’s staring at my bare flesh, intensity burning in his eyes. Then he’s there, right in front of me, and he yanks me into his arms and presses a tender kiss on my shoulder. When he lifts his head, he brings the blanket back over my shoulder and gives me a heated smile. “I’ve never been very good at sharing.”
“Do you trust me?”
“Yes.” I place my hands over his, breathless. “Of course.”
“We’re going to get through this.”
“I know you’ll do whatever you can to help me, Ryder. I’m just not sure that it will be enough.”
His eyes flare, with . . . annoyance, irritation, possession . . . I’m not exactly sure what he’s feeling, when he says, “I asked you if you trusted me and you told me, yes. Was that a lie?”
“No, of course not.”
He leans in and drops his head, his eyes right in line with mine. “No matter if that video gets out, Hadley, we’re going to deal with this. You will not face this alone.”

“Hadley,” I say sternly, reminding her that this is a bad idea.
“Ryder,” she whispers back, begging me to change my mind.
I’m fighting to keep my feet firmly on the ground. This is a game we play, she and I.
I set the limits.
She pushes against them.
