Blog Tour for Gabe by Leigh James


His Woman. His Family. His Company.

When the going gets tough, the tough get Alpha.

Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.

This is a scene where Lauren and Gabe are having an issue in the bedroom, and she shares a story from her AP-Chemistry past.

He tightened his embrace and kissed the top of my head. Shh. You dont have anything to apologize for.

I forced myself to calm down. Everything Gabe did, he did for mea fact I was well aware of. No other man could handle me, or wouldve had the patience to wait to lure me out of my ivory laboratory, divest me of my virginity, and handle every other crazy thing thatd come our way since.

I love you,I said.

I know.He kissed my nose. And I love you too.

Even though you haveblue balls?I laughed, trying to lighten the mood, although my face reddened at the topic.

Gabe looked at me, startled. Lauren Taylor, where on earth did you hear such an expression?

High school AP chemistry,I admitted, and laughed again. We were doing a section on cryogenics. The boys in my class passed me a note about itthey used to call me The Ice Queen.They said I was the freezer of all balls. They wouldnt stop laughing.

Gabe grimaced. Do you remember who they were? They might need a visit from your big, bad, vendetta-loving boyfriend.

Oh, I already took care of them. I got an A-plus in that class, beat them all out for the last remaining spot in the National Honor Society, and I also compromised the integrity of their test tubes so they shattered during our next experiment.I smiled at the memory. After I started Paragon, one of them had the nerve to try to add me to his LinkedIn. I blocked him, of course.

Nice.Gabe sounded impressed.

It seemed appropriate. The Ice Queen doesnt let shit like that go.

Gabe pulled me against him. Thats why shes the boss.

I clung to him. I never thought Id meet a man who understood me, let alone embrace me for who I was. Thank you forloving me. Me, the giver of blue balls.

He patted my hand. Me and my balls love youa lot. Were good, babe. But we should try to get some rest while we canare you okay?

I relaxed against his chest. Im okay.And for that brief moment in his arms, I actually meant it.
