First Kiss Friday
»»————- ♡ ————-««
Every Friday I share the first kiss from a book. This week it’s Busted by Olivia Sinclair.
What if my dad’s best friend finds out all my books’ sexy heroes are based on him?

I pull her closer against my chest, offering her my coffee cup, which she takes eagerly. I’m a bastard. I’m basking in the knowledge that I’m the man she still thinks about. She’s still attracted to me. I shouldn’t be encouraging her, but I’m finding that more and more appealing as I acknowledge my feelings for her. I skate wide around that topic for now.
“Think of it this way. You need to write this book for my sister Linda.”
“I didn’t know you had a sister.”
“I do. Two of them. Linda is the bossy one and, according to her, your biggest fan.”
“Aw, that’s so sweet.”
“Apparently. Until she realized she was reading about her little brother’s cock. She was not amused.”
Rose chokes with laughter. “I can see how that would be awkward. Is she the one who…”
“Yes. She’s the one that outed you. Well, she doesn’t know it was you behind Darla, but yes. So you’re really writing this next one for her.”
“Hmmm. Is she married?”
“Yes, to a man named Todd.”
“How’d they meet?”
“Rose, you can’t…”
“Oh hush, I’m not going to write their story. But maybe if I craft a hero in the shape of what Linda appreciates, it will solve all these problems.”
“He’s in the Air Force.” I try to keep the disdain out of my voice, but come on.
“And that’s a bad thing?” She sounds skeptical.
“If he were smart, he’d have gone into the Navy. Otherwise, he’s okay.”
“So how’d they meet?” She asks again, handing me back the empty coffee mug and snuggling against me. I can’t seem to stop my hands from playing with her hair.
“The story they both told me is that she met him in Vegas when he was there for a golf weekend and she went with friends for a bachelorette party. But a buddy of mine who knows Todd says they actually met when she locked herself in the restroom at a gas station on the Interstate and Todd rescued her.”
“Oh, that’s so sweet.”
“Yes. It’s perfect. Time to get to work.” She leans up and kisses me full on the mouth. It takes me so much by surprise that I don’t have time to react before she’s on her feet and heading inside.
I touch my lips. That felt good. Too good.
