“Is this what you want, Delaney?”

After a brief moment of hesitation, I raised my chin to meet his gaze. “Yes.”

He ran his thumb gently down my face, tracing my cheekbone, my jawline, before tilting my head up towards his. He rubbed my lower lip with his thumb, and I parted my mouth slightly, tasting salt on his hands. I leaned into him as he lowered his face, dropping his lips onto mine. They were surprisingly soft, a sharp contrast to his rough hands. He nibbled at my bottom lip and I opened to him, letting his tongue roll over me, tasting and teasing. A low groan escaped his throat and his body tensed. He pulled me in even closer, erasing any space that existed between us.

His hands traveled south from my hips to my rear, a flattened palm rubbing and exploring before he pressed me tight against his chiseled torso. Our chests touching, I appreciated the hard muscles beneath his shirt. A ripple of desire moved through me like electricity, pinging through my every fiber. I couldn’t believe I was doing this, yet it felt so, so right.

“I want you,” Quinn said in a low growl, his breath hot on my neck.

“I can see that,” I said, running a hand lightly over his chest, down his obliques, then crisscrossing my way across his stomach, circling the button of his jeans. His muscles tensed under my hand, and he squeezed me to him.

I answered with a deep kiss, parting his lips with my tongue, exploring his mouth. He had great lips and knew what to do with them, matching my pressure and intensity perfectly. I leaned against him, loving how strong his body felt.
