Okay, so I just finished Divorcefic.
He reaches down to shuck his clothing, but he’s a little unsteady, rocked by her touch, and he ends up toppling against her and they land with a soft thud back onto the bed.

“Maybe I wasn’t clear, Detective, but I only agreed to speak to you,” Maddox says, agitated eyes flicking from Castle and back to her.
Castle ignores him, pulls out his usual chair and sits down.
“On the contrary, Mr. Maddox. You were perfectly clear.” She pauses, leaning her body against the wall, arms folded. “But you’re in my house now and I’ll be the one calling the shots.”

Here’s the spoiler. Again, I apologize. Thought I’d have more time this weekend. But the chapter IS almost finished.
Spoiler for new chapter of “dissolution” after the jump.
