Nate loves Rebecca.
Rebecca loves Nate.
So, what’s the problem?
This is a short scene where Nate and Becca cross the first of many lines.
The first kiss is always the best…
“The possibility of his kiss is a brand new thing. I have stood in front of this man a thousand times before without being half so aware of his mouth. It’s a very handsome mouth, one I’ve seen smiling from magazine covers and smirking at me over cups of coffee. But for the first time in years, I want to know how it would feel against mine.
“Why?” I whisper again. But this time, the question means something else. It means, why am I suddenly so aware of you? Why are my breasts heavy against the lace of my nightie? Why is there so much heat in your eyes, and what is it doing to me? Why is…
He kisses me.
Again, I’m caught off guard. His lips are so soft. But my mouth is suddenly super sensitive. The snick of his kiss echoes inside my chest and the hairs rise on my arms when his lips brush over mine again. It’s overwhelming. I grab his biceps and let out a gasp. The sound sort of vibrates between us. He feeds off it. He cups the back of my head, and his kiss tilts, perfecting our the connection. There is nothing tentitive about it now. I now know exactly how much Nate’s mouth would feel against mine. It feels awesome. I part his lips and his tongue touches mine.
And goddamn it. That zing I’m hearing is all my hormones firing at once. And it pisses me off.
