He tilted his head as they entered the sunroom. “Is that Nelly’s Hot in Here you have playing?”
“Yes; and let me tell you it was slim pickings trying to find decent music from the year you graduated. After some investigation on my part, I did find out your school’s prom song,” she bragged.
He followed her to the iPod while she shuffled through the songs. Eve 6’s Here’s to the Night blared through the sound system. She’d cleared away the patio set they had in the sunroom to create a makeshift dance floor. His hands instinctively wrapped tightly around her waist and they began to sway to the music.
“I wish my class had picked a more upbeat song. The lyrics ‘In a day and a day love, I’m gonna be gone for good again’ doesn’t exactly work for our fun night.”
“We should’ve picked my prom song. It was Love Story,” She added after he twirled her. “You can’t go wrong with Taylor Swift.”
He dipped her low and kept her suspended. Her left leg reached out in front of her body as he supported her weight by pressing his hands against her lower back. He shifted forward to rain a trail of kisses starting at her chin to the top of her neckline. “I can’t believe you went to all of this trouble for me. It’s amazing.” He moved his lips to her ear.
“You are amazing.”
She snaked her hands around his neck and lifted out of the dip. She crushed her mouth against his and he responded hungrily. His hands caressed down her back before resting against her backside. He palmed her behind and pulled her nearer while never breaking their kiss.
As she broke away, breathless, she laughed nervously. “You can’t grope me yet, you haven’t even tried the punch.”
“Maybe we could have the punch later.” Between the gleam in his eyes and the seductive tone of his voice, he was apparently putting the moves on her. Judging by her weakened knees, it was working.
Opening her mouth to protest, she instead was silenced by his kiss. His tongue slipped inside her mouth and collided with her own. His hand moved to the front of her dress and he caressed her breasts. As he flicked the fabric across her nipples, she moaned into his mouth. She felt dizzy over his actions and unsure of whether to pay attention to what he was doing with his mouth or with his hands.
She pressed into him and he fell back onto the patio sofa. Refusing to halt the passionate embrace, she instead straddled him across his lap. As she moved close to nibble his earlobe, her knees dug into the sofa cushions. His hand became tangled in her hair, prompting her to remove the clip and toss it to the floor. His tongue snaked up her neck until he began to nibble on her ear. He growled, “God, I’ve wanted you for so long.”
Kate realized she should stop him. He was heading into territory she wasn’t ready to visit. But her throat seized up when she tried to tell him to hit the brakes. Her body wanted him and the things he was doing to her made it impossible to imagine ending the moment.
His hands moved to her thighs and he stroked the bare skin below her dress’s hem. She rocked forward and his fingers inched below the skirt. Her skin tingled where he touched, and she felt his mark long after his hands moved to another part of her. As she leaned forward to kiss him, she felt him growing excited beneath her.
Her body screamed for him, desiring nothing more than to revel in the feeling of him inside of her. Yet as his hand reached for her back zipper, she leaped off of him. She stumbled backwards in her haste, just barely regaining her balance as her face grew hot with embarrassment.
“Kate?” he questioned softly.
