READ AN EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT
I couldn’t think straight and didn’t give a damn about the implications of my actions because I did pretty much what ever on instinct and nothing else. My lips searched for his own and when they connected, it was magic from the moment it began.
My face heated up and I knew I was a deep crimson but I didn’t care. My eyes shut tight and I kissed him, hard. Paul eventually began to respond as soon as the surprised look on his face ended and when his tongue sought mine out, I opened my mouth to him. It struck me as ironic I hadn’t truly been this intimate with another man or allowed anyone to see the real me since Kevin.
This wasn’t a mere kiss of passion and longing; this was over fourteen years of pent up longing and aggression which had forced its way to the surface. I had liked him as more than a friend since I was ten and he was going on fourteen. I didn’t even know what hormones were at that age but I knew something about him made me feel all gooey and relaxed inside. He eased away my pain like no other and although it was wrong and there was a perfect young woman named Ashley out there he belonged to, for that one hot moment, he was mine, and we both felt it with every fiber of our beings.
I pulled away reluctantly before I kissed him gently again. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that. You’re too good of a man and a human being to confess to cheating—emotionally or otherwise—with someone else. Especially me.”
