She needed this man, and Coop let her take the lead. She loved him for it because she was feeling vulnerable and needed the control, however small. She couldn’t help herself, and had to feel the person she felt safest with as close as possible. The same person she was falling in love with. She’d fantasized about this very moment several times over.
His mouth was firm, soft, and warm against her. Her lips lingered to savor his taste with a few pecks on the lips at first to make sure he wanted this as much as she had. Meagan took his groan as a surrender and went to move her body as close as she could get to his. She leaned back and pulled him down on top of her.
She slid her arms around his neck and threaded her fingers through his soft blond locks. Her tongue came out to trace his lips, and he parted for her. She pulled her tongue back and nipped his bottom lip before she sucked on it. “You’re driving me nuts, Meagan.” Coop groaned again. “And I’m going to really kiss you now before you kill me right here.”
This time, there was no going slow. She put everything she’d been holding back into their kiss. She wanted him and would leave no question in his mind as to the fact that she did. Her tongue caressed his. It was a silky, wet warmth of entanglement as they rubbed and tasted each other for the first time.
It was fireworks.
The butterflies in her stomach went haywire, as if an electrical current were flowing through him and into her. She wondered if he felt it, too.
Coop’s tender touch nearly undid her. He touched her as if she were the most precious gift in the world as he placed his hands along her jawline. His thumbs moved up and down across the side of her neck, and she winced once he hit a tender part of it. “Shit, Meagan, I’m so sorry.”
Oh no. No, no, no…
“Don’t be. Please don’t stop.” She reached for him again, but he sat up again and kept a safe distance between them. “Coop?”
Shit! She felt like kicking herself for ruining the moment, and it had been such a good moment while it lasted. She bit her bottom lip to fight off the sting of rejection. It was ridiculous to feel that way, but still there regardless. He cursed again when a stray tear fell down her cheek.
“You know I’ve been dreaming about kissing you since the moment I laid eyes on you.” He smiled and stretched out onto the bed beside her, and then he reached out to do nothing more than hold her. She had her body nestled next to him and sighed as she laid her head against his chest, listening to the soothing sound of his beating heart while he held her.
“Then why didn’t you?”
“Because I knew you’d been burned, and I wasn’t sure you’d be ready for anything I was ready to give you. But I couldn’t let you walk out my door without knowing I could see you again, and it worked out perfectly that you needed a job and I had one available. I also knew I needed to go slow with you and that if you wanted me, I’d have to let you make the first move. I’m not sure how you feel, Meagan, or what place I’ll have in your life for sure, but I’d rather have you as a friend than nothing at all.”
“But what if I’m ready for more?”
