This week, my swoon is from Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally!
When I gaze up at him to say thank you again, his eyes are low-lidded and filled with longing.
Without a word, I set the birthday box down on his coffee table and gently press my lips to his.
When I was younger, I imagined that kissing him would be like an electric shock. But the spark I once dreamed of turns out to be lightning.
I pill away, and we stare at each other for several heartbeats. Then he crushes his mouth to mine.
Our lips are warm, full, and hungry. His hands trail up and down my arms, caressing my skin. My hands are everywhere. I pull him hard against me, leading him to the couch. We land in a tangle of arms and legs. I kick off my boots, ad he lifts me onto his lap so that I'm straddling him. He continues to kiss me as he wraps his arms around my waist.
