Twisting her fingers in my hair, she pulls my gaze up. “Didn’t anyone ever tell you it’s rude to stare?” Her cheeks are flushed and the smile she fights fills her tone anyway.
“How about touch.” I follow the brush of my thumbs with a gentle tug to her nipple. She inhales, gasps, more like. “Is it rude to touch? Because it seems almost rude not to when my wife looks as good as you do.”
This time, she gives into her smile, her eyes sparkling with delight. I slide my hands around her, pulling her closer. I’m in heaven as her knee lands next to my thigh, her breasts practically in my face. She smells like magnolias on hot summer nights and, as I slide my lips across her skin, find she’s as soft as their petals, too.
“Touch is good,” she whispers as my hands coast her hips, toying with the string of her panties.
“Touch is . . . fucking excellent.” Hooking my thumbs under the elastic, I edge them a little lower. Her hands tighten on my shoulders, excitement or anticipation, not that you’d know from her answer.
“I’ll let you know.”
I chuckle huskily. I know a gauntlet when it’s been thrown.
Game on, gorgeous girl.
Fate taught me eight years ago what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
Even if you do use condoms.
It’s a tale as old as time.
Girl meets boy (cute face, charisma, killer suit)
A wild night is had, and girl later finds out she’s pregnant.
She doesn’t finish college,
Doesn’t get $200 dollars for passing go.
Forced return to her hometown,
She makes her living serving coffee with a smile.
Even when she’s feeling stabby.
She does it all for her boy, the only man she’ll ever need in her life.
Until Fate decides otherwise.
She finds herself looking into those piercing blue eyes again.
He’s all man now.
And he’s been looking for her this whole time.
Now he’s living next door,
Shaking up her world, and driving her crazy!
Softening her heart as she watches him father their child.
She drops more than her defenses . . .
But she can’t take a chance on loving him.
Because secrets have a habit of resurfacing,
And her heart can’t take losing him a second time.
