When Robbi Bennett, special education teacher extraordinaire, decided to move from New York to California, it was for reasons beyond trading snowstorms for sunshine and surfing. Following the tragic death of her parents, and several doomed relationships, she craved a fresh start; an opportunity to reinvent herself.
Tyler D’Angelo, bad-boy biker and self-proclaimed man-whore, equates love with weakness. For decades, he has kept his heart on lockdown, but meeting Robbi turns his solitary life inside out as they are inexplicably drawn to each other. Can love be strong enough to overcome a lifetime of fear?
(This story features two hearing impaired characters. The story also involves information related to deafness, deaf education, and American Sign Language.)
The volume of his own voice seemed to shock him; he struggled to rein in his emotions as he continued. “Do you remember our first date — how we talked for hours on this couch? I fell in love with you that night, sitting right in this exact spot.” Tyler appeared to lose focus for a moment, as his hand caressed the black velvet cushion, which cradled her soon-to-be-naked ass. “I love this fucking couch.” Robbi’s soft giggle eventually returned him to reality. Her morning-blue eyes sparkled as she sought his gaze. Her voice was so gentle, so full of love; his heart melted on the spot.
“Tyler, I adore your voice, but right now I need you to stop talking,” she demanded in a hoarse whisper, seizing his ponytail and pulling him toward her. “Fuck. Me. Now!”
Teri McGill grew up in Queens, New York and moved to warm and sunny Los Angeles in 1994, immediately following the Northridge earthquake. She taught Mathematics to deaf high school students for thirty years, which explains some of the recurring themes in her stories. When she is not at the computer, either writing or beta reading/proofreading, she enjoys working out, golf, mosaics, Math tutoring, and watching sports.
