~ Excerpt ~
My fingers dug into his hair, and brought his lips closer. His mouth was warm and soft and inviting. Deepening the kiss, one of his hands held my behind easily while the other was placed around my neck.
I moaned into his mouth as he kissed with crazy fervor. Sparks ignited deep in my belly from simply touching him. He pulled back, breaking our kiss. His eyes were dark with need, and our breathing was completely erratic.
“Jesus, Lily.” His tone was husky as he tried to steady his voice. “Just kissing you makes me want to strip you naked and make love to you again.”
“Ditto,” I murmured shyly, feeling a blush warm my cheeks.
Our chemistry was always there, it was untamable.
He raised his hand to brush the backs of his fingers along my cheek. “Damn, it has only been a couple of days since I last saw that blush, and I fucking missed it.”
I put my hands on his shoulders and kissed his lips softly.
“So, how are we getting dirty today?” Kyle asked, elated.
I pointed in the direction of the mudroom. “You’ll have to go see.”
He pushed off the counter, and I expected him to put me down, but he carried me in the direction of the back door. He eyed me questioningly as we stopped in the middle of the room. Then, he realized there was another door in the mudroom. Kyle opened the door and then stared in complete disbelief. His eyes filled with boyish excitement. He set me down and took a few measured steps into the five-car garage.
The first two car spaces no longer had vehicles in them. The third car spot had six Polaris four-wheelers—a pink one, a blue one, two black ones, and two white ones with blue stripes—parked in two perfectly aligned rows. Three of them were clean with only dust on them, and the other three looked as if they had been ridden fairly recently. The fourth and fifth car spaces each had a trailer that held four snowmobiles. Three dirt bikes were carefully placed along the front wall with just enough walking room around them.
“Wow.” Kyle drooled like a teenage boy as he stared at all the toys.
I chuckled at his amazement.
He turned to face me. “You’ve been holding out on me, beautiful girl.”
I shrugged. “I’m a tomboy at heart.”
He threw his head back and laughed. “I guess so. Though, I need a bit more proof,” he challenged.
“You’re on.” I grinned.
