Warning: contains graphic sex and strong language
As Trevor helped Lila up the porch steps, she wrapped her
arms around his neck and brushed her lips against his jaw. She hadn’t taken her
hands off him since they’d left Tate’s.
“I love to feel your stubble.” She ran her fingers along his
cheek. “It’s sexy.”
“Keys?” He held out his hand and waited as she dug through
her bag. She had him rock hard and ready to go. The fact that she’d rested her
hand on his thigh the whole ride home hadn’t helped matters. It was the alcohol
lowering her inhibitions, but that didn’t make it any easier not to respond.
“Here they are.” She dropped them into his hand. “Come
inside with me.”
He opened the door and led her into the foyer. As soon as he
let her go, she stumbled forward. He caught her by the waist and pulled her
against him. He couldn’t take his eyes away from her lips.
“Do you want to kiss me?” Her warm breath caressed his
More than you know.
“Let me help you upstairs. I don’t want you to fall down the
steps.” He scooped her up and carried her to the staircase. She was so light
and dainty. She was still his perfect fit.
“You didn’t answer my question.” She placed soft, open-mouth
kisses along his neck as he made his way to her old bedroom. He remembered
sneaking up those steps many times, while her father slept down the hall. They
still creaked, but this time he didn’t have to worry about getting caught.
“Of course I want to kiss you.” He pushed the door open with
his shoulder and set her down by the bed.
She closed her eyes and leaned into him.
He swiped the hair from her face, took her chin between his
fingers, and placed a chaste kiss on her lips.
She opened one eye and peered at him, waiting for more.
“That’s it?” Disappointment flooded her beautiful features.
“For tonight.” He tapped the tip of her nose with is finger.
“I want you to remember when I kiss you.”
“I’ll remember.” She wrapped her arms around his neck.
“You’re not easy to forget.”
He pried her arms from his body. “Believe me, I want to, but
“Because four hours ago you ran away from me,” he said.
“Something made you run. Tell me why.” He may not have wanted to take advantage
of her physically while she was intoxicated, but he didn’t see why he couldn’t
let her drunken lips tell him what she was afraid of.
“You can’t what?” He needed to know what she thought about
the two of them.
“I’m tired now.” She lifted her dress over her head and
tossed it in the corner of the room. She stood before him in nothing but her
white push-up bra and matching lace thong.
“Hell.” He couldn’t take his eyes off her toned, tanned
body. He mindlessly licked his lips when he discovered her rose-colored nipples
poking through the thin, silky material of her bra. Struggling with himself, he
tried not to lower his gaze. He lost the battle as he greedily took in her
scantily covered sex.
“Want to kiss me now?” She ran her fingers down her neck and
over her breasts. “Want to touch me like this?” She moved her hand down her
stomach and to the waistband of her panties.
He stepped closer to her and grabbed her wrist. He had to
get her to stop or he’d lose all control.
“You want to do it?”

If you normally follow us you know how I feel about stories that reunite lost loves, and this one is no exception to that. Such a great story.
Trevor and Lila have taken a break from each other during their first relationship, from that the results were something that breaks them up for good.
When Lila’s father passes and she is forced to come back to the small town she’d fled from when her relationship with Trevor ended, she hopes that she never has to see him again. So many memories and thoughts surface of having to see him again. Those old feelings and desires for the first man to own her heart haunt her, making her doubt that she made the right choice.
Trevor regrets the fact that he made mistakes that caused him to lose the love of his life, but now maybe his luck has changed and he is getting the chance to get her back. The only thing is will she be able to live with the new facts he knows about what caused them to break up in the first place.
The chemistry and love between between these two is not only palpable but sweet as well.
