He says nothing, his ragged breathing close and intoxicating. When he tucks a chunk of hair behind my ear, my muscles seize up.
My name is whispered, blending with the soft background music, and I let the photo fall.
Then he speaks again, his voice huskier. “Ivy. If you could see how you look right now… man, I want to kiss you so badly.” He takes a deep breath, swallows loudly. “Can I?”
“No,” I tell the picture of the sad Christmas tree in my lap. “That’s not a good idea.”
He sighs. “It is, Ivy. It’s a great idea. Just one kiss. Nothing more, I promise—not unless you beg me for it.”
Just a teeny little taste of Nico. A soft press against his delicious lips. It would be so simple. So easy. So right.
He stares at my mouth. I stare at his. And then without any conscious thought, I lean in. “Only one kiss. Just one time.”
“Okay. Just once,” he agrees, his chest rising and falling fast against my palm.
Nervous anticipation makes me shake. What was I thinking before? This is wrong, so wrong. And then… then our lips meet. His breath is warm and tastes of vodka. The world stops, the music, everything but the feel, the sound our of our slow kiss disappears. With a sexy groan, his palms frame my face, changing the angle, deepening the fit. - Excerpt from Tempting Ivy - Damaged Souls Golden Hearts book 3 - by Amy J. Heart.
