Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he's forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn't take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.

“What did you come here for, Bree? Go back to your boyfriend and leave me be.”
“I don’t have a boyfriend.” Briana retorted. “I haven’t had the stomach for one since you left.”
Colin took a step closer. “That Kent guy isn’t your boyfriend?”
“No,” Briana responded. “Look, I came here because I was pissed that you got mad at us. You have no reason to be mad. I don’t get why you’re. You’re the one who left. You didn’t want me then, so why do you care now?”
With that she whirled towards the door, intent on leaving.
She only made it a couple steps before Colin grabbed her arm and whirled her back. He walked her quickly backwards until she was stopped by the door.
Before she could register what was happening, she was flat against the door and his mouth was on hers.
She didn’t think, she just reacted.
Her hands came up around his neck and his fastened under her bottom and lifter her up. She wrapped her legs around his waist, to get stabilized, then met his hot, hungry mouth with her own.
They kissed frantically, as if they had been starved for the contact. When his mouth left hers to trail kisses down her throat, her head fell back to allow him better access. As he licked his way back up to her mouth, she groaned loudly, and he paused to look at her.
“Wanting you was never the problem,” He stated, eyes black with need, then dove back in and began to drive her slowly crazy.
