“What about my kiss?” She pouted with a hand on her hip.
My eyes were trained on her lips. They were begging for my attention, and I wanted to give it to them.
“Baby…” I took a deep breath. “If I kiss you now, I won’t be able to stop.”
I wanted her. There was no doubt about it. She drove me insane and turned me on. There was nothing more that I wanted than to be with her. From the moment I saw her until probably the day I took my last breath, my desire would burn for her.
She moved toward me with an exotic look in her eyes, almost like a tiger about to catch her prey. “I want my hello kiss.”
My girl liked playing with fire. Good thing that was my specialty.
“I warned you,” I said, keeping my eyes focused on hers.
I could feel my heart beating faster in my chest. I had to clear my head. I could just kiss her hello. I could do this. Although I couldn’t stop thinking about the other night, feeling her squirming under my touch, I reminded myself that she deserved our first time to be special.
Licking her lips, she smiled and let out a sexy laugh.
I was a goner.
