Excerpt:

“Jess.” He stopped her.

“There’s nothing you could ever tell me that would change the way...” He took a deep breath. “…the way I love you.” He’d said it. He’d wanted to say it before, but the time was never right. He waited, suspended. He knew how she felt, but he needed the words.

Time stopped as Jesse released him. They faced each other. She found his eyes, her hair falling away. “I love you, too. I had no idea what love was until I met you.” She studied him in the soft, special way he dreamt of. “From that first morning, I’ve thought about you so much. You’re part of me.”

She grabbed him with unexpected force. Then, she found his lips and kissed him. He was afraid she’d devour him, and he loved it. He kissed her back, feeling the soft, tender warmth of her mouth and tongue as it sought his. Her fragrance surrounded them as his hands slipped inside her jeans, feeling the soft warmth as he caressed her. She followed his lead.

They stopped in unison, breathing heavily as they clung to each other. Searching desperately for a sanctuary, their eyes fell on the same thing. Parked a block away was Matt’s Mustang convertible. He took her hand, but she was already pulling him toward it.

“You’re sure…” He never finished.

“Yes, Matthew, yes!

They ran toward his car. Matt fumbled for the keys and opened her door. He looked around. She touched his hand, sending strange, new sensations through him. He wanted to touch every inch of her rich body and more than anything he’d ever wanted in his life, he wanted to be with her.
