He drew in a deep breath and blew it out heavily. “May I kiss you?”
I blinked stupidly. I don’t think I’d ever been asked if I could be kissed. Not outright like that. It was… endearing. Sweet.
I hesitated for a long time, my gaze flicking back and forth over his features. One kiss. Only one. I wanted it with a fierceness that surprised me. A single kiss wasn’t enough to change my mind. It wasn’t going to leave me head over heels in love with this man. It’s safe, my heart insisted, overpowering my brain. I smiled.
“Yes, Connor Moore. You can kiss me.”
His mouth was on mine almost before I’d finished speaking. He pressed me back against the car. One hand came up to cradle my neck and tilt my face up, and the other settled at my hip.
This kiss was a dramatic counterpoint to the other we’d shared. It was filled with slow, sweet ardor that built and built until I thought it was going to set me aflame. His lips moved against mine perfectly, a firm, soft glide that set my heart racing. My eyes fluttered closed as I pressed closer and twined my arms behind his neck as he deepened the kiss. I tasted the stars. Someone moaned. Him or me, I couldn’t even tell. But he gained a sudden urgency with the sound, and his hand tightened at my hip. His teeth grazed my bottom lip, and I gasped as liquid heat seared through me.
Jesus, I thought, dazed. My legs aren’t going to hold. How the heck does he do that with one kiss?
