First Kiss Friday
Today’s first kiss is from Hearts in Danger by Sandra Carmel
Steamy protector romance
He cupped her face with his hand. “You’re one of the sanest people I’ve ever met.”
“Really? How can you say that when we’ve just reconnected?”
“I know you.”
“Not that much anymore.”
He’d breached the physical boundaries, he should stop touching her, but he couldn’t. “Enough for me to see you’re still switched on and not someone who overreacts.”
She pressed her palm to the back of his hand. “Thank you.”
“You don’t need to thank me. Like I said, I won’t lie to you.”
“Since when?” He didn’t want to ruin the moment, but he needed specifics.
“Since you were adamant you wanted to protect me. Since you pushed for more details and wouldn’t take no for an answer. Since you took me seriously.”
“I’ve always taken you seriously. Too seriously.” He stroked the pad of his thumb over her cheek.
“No such thing.” Her gaze moved between his eyes and lips. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Fuck, she wanted a kiss. No way would he waste this chance.
He leaned in slowly, giving her the ability to retreat.
Sage met him halfway, closed the distance, pressed those sweet lips to his, and he was lost. In the best possible way.
His inner caveman drove him to devour her. Although difficult, he overrode his impulsive hormonal response, and took his time, not wanting to scare her with his dominance. He’d ease in, feel things out. With all the shit going on, she didn’t need her fear exacerbated.
She pressed into him, like she couldn’t get close enough. Exactly how he felt. Alexander needed her body flush with his, skin on skin. But he’d let things play out. Make sure that’s what she wanted too. Though, it didn’t stop him grabbing her hot little ass and lifting her onto his lap.
She gasped, her core rubbing his eager cock. Sage gripped his shoulders and stared into his eyes, almost awestruck, surprised, like she couldn’t quite believe what had happened.
Neither could he.
He’d fantasized about this moment for so long. Too long. And his imagination failed in comparison.
Before he could dive back into the kiss, she beat him to it, crushing her mouth to his, her moist, insistent tongue delving between his lips. He groaned, his cock so hard he thought it might spear through his pants.
Things got hot and heavy fast, both of them feasting on each other, like dieters indulging in a banquet of off-the-menu treats. He trailed his hands over her luscious curves and up and down her thighs. Fuck, he needed her plastered to him, naked.
He broke the kiss to take a breath. “Clothes off.”
