First Kiss Friday

»»————- ♡ ————-««
Every Friday I share the first kiss from a book. This week it’s The Billionaire and the Princess by Katherine E Hunt.
British journalist falls for her billionaire boss but all is not what it seems…

Once again his arms are around me, holding me in a sweeping embrace. “You okay?” Our faces only inches apart, we freeze, staring into each other’s eyes, contemplating. Kissing this man would be very, very, wrong. He is my boss.

And yet, in that very second, we both abandon any illusion of platonic feelings. This is exactly how it had happened on the plane. A touch of turbulence had sent my drunken body reeling into his. And the rest was history.

Without hesitation, our lips come together. He kisses me, and I kiss him. A mutual impulse that neither of us can deny. It is delicious, warm, sweet bourbon for the soul, as if destiny is absolutely insisting we find each other and continuously throws me into his arms until we get it right.

He pulls away and stares at me. Does he remember? He seems confused. His eyes narrow, scanning my face. We’d kissed that night on the plane, but it wasn’t sweet and romantic like this. That had been wanton, lust-filled, drunken making out, the type of kiss you have to wipe off of your face when you’ve finished.
