A Hard Habit to Break for My Sexy Saturday (week 31)

January 11, 2014

Baby, it's cold outside! So let's heat it up a bit for the first My Sexy Saturday of the New Year with a first kiss from A Hard Habit to Break, the first book in the Men of Marionville series.

(I had a little trouble getting the linky-list to show at the end of this post so click My Sexy Saturday to see this week's participants if it's not there.)

Crap. He was sliding downhill fast. How much alcohol had he consumed before I arrived? I put my arms around him, drinking in the feel of his lean body against mine. He held me tightly, clinging like a man drowning. Maybe he was, and not from the booze.  “Let’s go to your place. We can stop and get some coffee on the way.”

His eyebrows shot upward. “No food or drink in my car, Heath Kelley, or have you forgotten?”

I’d never forget dumping soda all over the inside of his first car, and apparently neither would he. I licked my lips. “It was an accident. Besides, you were the one that hit the pothole and bounced me around.”

Before he could reply, I pulled his mouth to mine.

The touch shot through me. I meant to keep the kiss brief, even chaste, but Travis seized the advantage, his lips moved hungrily over mine. My mind whirled with memories of that long-ago kiss, which had been almost innocent, and his more recent words of denial. Heat swept through me, even as I tried to pull away. I couldn’t do this tonight, not when he might regret it once he sobered up.  I broke off the kiss so I could gather my wits. Travis grabbed me, his arms like steel bands around me.

“Don’t run, Heath. I’m sorry.”

I held him as tightly as he held me. "Don't be sorry, not for this C'mon. Let's get you home."

Aw love a man with honor. I say he stay and see if Travis still wants him in the morning. Morning nooky is always a great way to start the day!
