“It is Lance’s loss, but I’m sorry he broke your heart.”
She shrugged. “I’m sorta fine now. My baggage is being unpacked faster than I’d estimated.” She set her sandwich on the paperback and shifted her body to face him more fully.
“Things seem to happen on their own time.” His fingers found her chin and tipped her face up, giving her a full view into his green eyes. The seductively drank her in and held her there.
“Right here? Now?” she whispered. “I’m a mess.”
He slowly shook his head, careful not to break the connection between them by taking away the eye contact. “You’re beautiful.”His lips found hers, shooting blazing hot desire through her
body, rocking her to the core. Instead of pushing him away like
she’d done before, she parted her lips and inched his open with
her tongue. Tasting him set her on fire. Wrapping her arms around his shoulders, she knew she was done running. This was it. With him. Who knew what would bring tomorrow, but today she wasn’t running away. Instead, her mouth melted against his.
