Rhys is hoping she and Nick can put the past behind them, but he’s still staring down a wall of guilt. Right before this six, he’s lamented he doesn’t want to be “that asshole” who shot her, left town, and came back for a “piece.” Her response follows.
“I appreciate your concern,” she said, “but you’re always going to be that asshole who shot me.”
He snorted. “Thanks a lot.”
Rhys slid her hand under his shirt and traced his spine with her fingertips, delighting in his shivers. “As for the piece, if you don’t want to be with me, say so. Otherwise, stop interceding on my behalf.”
(The shooting was accidental and in the line of duty. Nick and Rhys worked together undercover until her injuries ended her career.)
