The moment she pressed her lips against his, Aiden's hesitance faded away. He could taste the remnants of chocolate on her breath, the sweetness no rival to the sensual touch of her mouth. He could have lost himself in that moment. In the feel of her body pressed against his.
Somehow, for some reason only the heavens knew, Patrice Grant, the woman he pined after for almost a year, stood in his embrace.
"Touch me," she murmured. Her lips brushed against his.
Oh, Christ. His mind a blur of wants and needs, he didn't know where to start first. When she reached between their bodies to loosen a button on her jacket, he pulled away long enough to look down. His hands joined hers, working in sync to remove the excess material separating him from her. He felt clumsy. The buttons seemed to dance out of his way as if the round pieces of pearl eluded him on purpose.
He could remove women's clothing. He'd been slipping off bras and other underwear since he was seventeen years old. Taking off her jacket should have been as simple as taking off his own. But his mind was too fuzzy, too confused, and too excited to obey the simplest of motor commands. To distract her from his ineptitude, he captured her mouth with his again. Another burst of chocolate tingled over his senses when he slipped his tongue between her parted lips.
How many days had he watched the seductive sway of her hips as she walked and imagined sliding himself between those thighs? How many nights did he stroke himself to completion thinking about what she would feel like beneath him? A living fantasy writhed beneath his hands, and he was fucking it up because much-needed blood raced from his head to his cock.
Patrice gripped his jaw in her hands, preventing him from crushing her in his enthusiasm. He managed to release the last button and pushed the jacket off her shoulders. It slid over the silk of her blouse and caught against the crook of her arms. She would have shrugged it off, but Aiden pushed himself against her, blocking the motion. The wall behind her held her erect. Through the kiss, he grinned.
Bound and pinned in place was just one of the fantasies he'd imagined.
He worked on slipping the buttons of her blouse free next. Her soft urgent moans spurred him to work faster, to find the soft brown skin hidden beneath. He could have wept with joy when he glanced down long enough to spy a dainty yellow bra. With trembling fingers, he pushed the shirt away until it, too, caught where the jacket held her in place.
Her eyes met his when he looked up again. He kissed her, a light sweep of his lips across hers.
"You are so beautiful, Patrice."
She was. Not just pretty. Not just cute. Beautiful.
Her almond-shaped brown eyes laughed all the time. They had the amazing ability to see right through people. Even as she sized up her competition or coworkers, they appeared to invite everyone in to get to know her. That was, until her sarcasm and sharp wit came over to play.
A perfect up-turned nose sat above full lips. The cheekbones of her heart shaped face spoke of a regal ancestry. Her face, combined with her slender neck and wind-blown locks, screamed casual elegance.
His probably wasn't the only heart to grind to a screeching halt whenever she walked into a room. The sole black woman among a field of cookie-cutter blondes dressed alike in dark business suits, she stood out for more than just her skin color. Men and women alike visually followed her movements. She didn't look for the extra attention. It found her.
Aiden dipped his head and tasted the skin at the base of her neck. The rounded tops of her breasts rose and fell faster when his tongue slid down her flesh. He nipped at her, his movements slow and teasing. The lace on her sexy yellow bra tickled his chin. Removing one hand from her waist, he thumbed over the cup and almost groaned when her nipple came alive under his touch.
He held his breath and pushed her breast until the areola peeked out. Just the very top of it. Just enough to make him lick his dry lips, swallow against a dry throat.
"You're killing me, Aiden," she complained, her voice low and husky.
