Here's a little taste:
Beneath me, Shadow’s face contorted into an expression I didn't understand. Concerned, I asked, “What?”
His expression relaxed. Reaching up, he placed a hand on either side of my face. “Do you have any idea what your current proximity is doing to me, especially when you grind your hips into mine like that?”
Before I had climbed into bed, I had stripped out of Celeste’s clothes and into one of Shadow’s T-shirts. He had removed everything but his boxer briefs. With very little material between us now, it didn't take long for me to figure out what he meant. He wanted me, really wanted me, and the thought caused a warm sensation to ripple through the length of my body.
Filled with a sudden desire to be even closer, I leaned down and kissed him. Sucking gently on his lower lip, I coaxed his mouth to open and invite me in. As our tongues danced, his hands moved from my face, over my shoulders, and down to the lower curve of my back. Deepening the kiss, I pressed myself closer still. He groaned softly. Sliding his hands over my butt and down to my thighs, he reached for the hem of my shirt, his shirt, and slowly edged it upwards. I didn't stop him. I wanted this. I wanted him. As his fingers traced over my bare skin, a wave of electricity ran through me. Although I had felt it many times before, somehow, tonight, it was far more intense. Igniting every cell in its path, it caused my heart to race, my need for him to increase.
With his hands splayed out across my back, he rolled us over. Pinned beneath him, I was no longer in the controlling position. But I didn't care. If he wanted to lead, then I was more than willing to follow.
