Compulsive Desires

YCompulsive Desires: Is it Infatuation or Love?  — by Ava Catori

Sophie Samuels was in love. Well, okay, maybe it was lust, but who wouldn’t be? Bear Trevor, the Bear Trevor, famous adventurer and male model had just fallen in her lap.

It started with a conversation, and then a wicked one night stand, but now Bear was asking for more. The only problem was that Sophie was confused by what she was feeling.

Were her growing feelings real, or was she simply infatuated with the handsome star? Sifting through the details of their fling, Sophie is forced to admit her new obsession may be just that – an obsession. Can Bear convince Sophie that they could be much more together, or will Sophie realize it’s not love after all?

Read an Excerpt!

Checking my watch, it was now fifteen minutes past ten o’clock, and Bear was a no show. I felt like a fool, and wondered how much longer I should wait. I was both annoyed and depressed that my big moment with a celebrity was a bust. I should have known; I’m just some girl he met on a plane.

As I stood, I adjusted the skirt portion of my dress, shrugging it over my hips. About to turn around, I glanced at the doors just as he was coming in. The smile that hit my face was embarrassing.

“You look smashing,” he said, and then kissed my cheek. He kissed me!

“Thank you,” I couldn’t hide the flush spreading across my cheeks. I realized I was over dressed. He was in a pair of old jeans, a short sleeve button down, and loafers.
