Excerpt from No Falling Allowed
I led him to my room, my pulse hammering in my ears, my body unbelievably keyed up. I couldn’t stop thinking, couldn’t relax.
“Don’t do that.”
I turned in his arms, lifted my chin. “What?”
“Hide in here.” He kissed my forehead, then trailed slow kisses down the side of my face, heat hitting my ear as he whispered, “Let me take the worry away. For one night, just be you.”
“One mind-blowing night.” Hunter’s hands dropped to my waist, his gaze following his hands, igniting my insides all over again. “What are you afraid of? Me…or yourself?”
I wanted to laugh off what he was suggesting, to feel the confidence I’d oozed earlier, but somehow this man had slipped under my skin, exposing the truth—I was a fraud.
I was a fat girl in a thin body, unable to ever see myself as anything else. I was a failure in a designer suit. An ugly face hidden behind expensive makeup and even more expensive facials. And not once had I ever shown my doubts to anyone, including Cameron and Lauren, my two best friends. But this guy had somehow pushed all the BS that was my life away and left behind the teen girl I still felt I was deep inside.
“I’m not afraid.”
Then before I could delay the moment any longer, Hunter’s lips crashed against mine, and my worries drifted
away as his tongue swept inside my mouth in slow, delicious strokes, tasting and feeling and sampling in a way I’d never been sampled before. His hands glided down my back, leaving goose bumps in their wake. He gripped my ass, then hooked my leg around his waist, all evidence of his need pressing against my stomach, sending any hope of self-preservation and dignity out the window.
I was seconds away from begging him to undress me, when, as though he heard my request, he let go of my thigh and trailed his fingertips over the hem of my shirt, dipping underneath to skim across my stomach, up my back, securing me to him as the kiss of all kisses continued. Red-hot heat spread over every inch of my skin, my mind fuzzy and lost, and God if it wasn’t the best sensation I’d ever felt in my life.
“I’m going to take this off now,” he said, thumbing the shirt, his gaze darkening as he stared down at me.
