TITLE: Emotionally Compromised - 1st Kiss
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Jeremy Hunt knows that Alex Turner is trying her damnedest to keep her distance, what he doesn’t know is she’s a federal agent.
I want to kiss her.
“Don’t even think about it Jeremy.”
Can she can read my mind?
“Yes, it’s that obvious, and I am telling you don’t do it.”
My eyebrows shoot up in wry amusement, but I can feel myself leaning towards her.
She doesn’t take a step back, but raises her hand, placing it firmly against my chest in a haphazard attempt to halt me, but the attraction is there; I can feel it like static electricity.
“Will you ever listen to a damn word I say?” she sighs.
It is all a game, and I never lose. Her persistence only makes it more appealing, and I know all I want to do is to kiss that wonderful mouth.
She’s smiling, actually grinning, as I get closer, “Jeremy please—“
With her hand languidly resting on my chest now, our lips finally touch. I can feel her rewarding grin against my mouth. I don’t want to stop, and she doesn’t resist. If anything, she eggs me on as her hand drags up over my chest, sending goosebumps all over my body. What surprises me is that it is her lips commanding mine.
With a quiet moan as my cue, I coax her lips apart, letting our tongues tangle around each other.
*PING* The elevator doors open.
Like a spell that has been broken, before I can form some plan of action, she pushes me away with a surprising amount of strength.
We are out of breath. I can’t wipe the triumphant grin off my face.
She takes in one final fill of oxygen, and says with force, “You get one free pass Jeremy, and that was it.”
She acts as if this is all my fault.
I don’t know much, but I do know it takes two to tango.
