Izzy couldn’t stop smiling if her life depended on it. She glanced at her husband— husband— as they descended the stairs toward the reception area.

The actual wedding ceremony had passed in a blur. She was sure the rest of the night would probably be just the same.

She couldn’t believe she’d spent a year worrying about the small details of their wedding and now that the day was here, she only cared about the honeymoon.

“Do you know all these people?” Adam murmured so low only she could hear. He pulled at the collar of his tux, looking nervous and sexy at the same time.

“Nope. It looks like Dad invited half the city though.” She’d told her father she’d wanted something small and simple but he hadn’t listened. He’d given her a lot of space this past year so she’d let him have the big wedding. It wasn’t worth the argument and she figured she was his only daughter and she was only doing this once anyway. When it came down to it, she didn’t care where they were or who came. Only that she and Adam were married.

As the DJ announced their first dance, the idle chatter stopped and their song started. Unexpected tears stung her eyes as he swept her onto the dance floor. In her head she knew they were surrounded by people, but she had eyes only for him.

“Have I told you how beautiful you look today?” His deep, intoxicating voice and the heated look in his eyes sent shivers straight to her pinky toes.

A smile tugged at her lips. “Only about a hundred times.”

“Get used to it, wife. ”

Her breath hitched as he pulled her tighter against him. For the first time in her life, she knew exactly what she wanted. And in his arms was the only place she wanted to be.
