He dropped kissed across my collarbone and any hesitations I may or may not have had about going back there evaporated.
"Let's get you out of that dress," He whispered, his hot breath dancing across my neck.
I answered him by grabbing the hem of his t-shirt and pulling. He laughed as he flung it off, his impossibly defined abs now on full display, and laced his fingers through mine pulling toward the bedroom.
Yep. All hesitations were definitely gone.
Once inside his room he spun me into an embrace, pressing his body against my back and wrapping his arms around me.
"This is really such a great dress," He whispered. He ran his hand over the soft wool of my skirt, grabbing curves along the way.
I gave a half-hearted thanks, but I didn't really care if he liked the dress. I wanted to be kissing him again. "Are you gonna compliment it or take it off?" I asked with my characteristic snark.
He laughed into the curve of my neck and I felt his fingers on the zipper. I turned to face him as I let the dress fall to the floor.
His sound of lustful approval defied description as his eyes scanned my body.
I stepped out of my dress, rising up on my toes, and pressed myself against his bare chest. His skin felt scalding but in the best way. I was close enough to kiss him but I didn't. I catalogued the details of his face instead. The feathery lashes, the crinkles near his gold-flecked eyes, and the incorrigible way his hair curled across his forehead.
This man was seriously too attractive for his own good.
He interrupted my musings on his status as a perfect male specimen with a passionate kiss that left me breathless. I was trying to remember my own name when he half pushed half carried me onto his bed.
I giggled as he landed on top of me.
He hovered over me, poised to kiss me, but paused. "Did you miss me, Princess?"
My snark kicked in before I could stop it. "No, missing you would require feelings and I don't have those." I literally bit my tongue, holding it between my teeth as I waited to see if I'd gone to far.
He dropped his head onto my chest and laughed, vibrating my whole body with his mirth. "You're such a pain in my ass," he said.
And then neither one of us said anything coherent for a long time.
