Don't forget the Rafflecopter at the end of the post!
I try not to flinch when his hand slides beneath the hem of my sweater and skates across my bare skin. “I can wait, Mollie. If that’s what you want.”
I don’t want to wait, but I can’t get any words out.
“You said we should go slow. Get to know each other. Be open.” He brushes my hair to the side, exposing my neck. “I may not know everything about you, Mollie. But I know you. I know your heart and your will and your determination…and your vulnerability.” He places soft kisses at the top of my shoulder, searing my skin. In between kisses, his voice is velvet. “I’m not sure how it happened, but I feel like I’ve known you my whole life.”
I wrap my arm around his neck and let out a soft sigh. “I want you to know it all.” Turning my head to the side, I part my lips, calling his to mine. “To have it all.”
He wastes no time joining our mouths and stealing my breath with his warmth. A warmth that quickly turns to fire as we taste each other with soft slow nudges and nips.
Dizzy with need, I pull back to look in his eyes, breathing heavily. His hand cups my chin, keeping my face, my lips, close to his. “I might have some broken pieces that aren’t fully repaired… and I might have some blank spaces I can’t remember… but the rest is all yours.” He kisses me once, gently. “If you’ll have me.”
