Excerpt – Rated PG-13
He leaned over and brushed his lips against hers. His breath smelled...appealing. She inhaled, her lips parting. He placed his warm palm against her cheek and looked into her eyes. What she saw there made her catch her breath. It was as if he was lost and looking for himself in her eyes.
She brought her mouth to his, at first tentative and then, as he returned her kiss and deepened it, as that tingling warmth made her body come alive, she kissed him with growing urgency. He was the best thing she’d ever tasted. Again and again she dipped her tongue into his mouth, tasting him, drinking him in. Her breasts ached. Her groin ached.
Suddenly she was straddling his lap, struggling to get closer to him as her mouth moved frantically over his. She heard herself whimper and moan, felt his hands pulling her into his body. She felt his hard length pressing against her, between her thighs, and her hips rocked against him. His head flew back and he groaned. She saw the exposed skin of his neck and had to taste it. She kissed his skin, licked it, blessed it with her hot breath, sucked it. He smelled faintly of lemon cologne. His skin tasted tangy, musky and slightly salty, and it felt good against her tongue. His breathing was harsh and uneven. His eyes half-lidded and dark with desire. She wanted more.
