“Oh, cut the crap. I know you better than that, Chels.”
Okay, here we go again with the radar. “Yeah, right. You haven’t been around me for ten years.”
“But I still know you. Nothing you say can change that, so quit your lying and tell me what’s on your mind.”
She had to lie or she would end up upstairs naked underneath his bulky tanned body. “Nothing. I’m reading.”
“Put the book down.”
“Hold on. This is an interesting part,” she said. As if she had comprehended a single word she had read. She couldn’t even think straight with his hands kneading her flesh. She could feel them working their way up to the edge of her bikini bottoms.
“Come on,” he urged.
His fingers play with the hem of the bottoms. The more his hands explored her body, the more distracted she became. “Nope,” she replied with a shake of her head. Her eyes continued to stay on the page even though her mind was totally on him. If she looked up, she would turn to putty in his hands.
“I want you to swim with me.”
“You do not,” she said. “You want to make love.”
His laugh sounded smooth like satin against her ears. “And you don’t?”
She held the book up higher, hoping to block the view of his face. “I’d rather read.”
“I don’t believe you. Tell me the last sentence you read?”
“What reason have I given you to not believe me?” She flipped the page in her book.
“ Your nipples are hard.” He ran his finger over one.
Heat rose to her cheeks. “It’s cold.”
“There’s nothing wrong with hard nipples, Chels. The problem is, you’re denying me being the cause of those hard nipples.” He reached up and took the book out of her hand. It landed with a thump on the cement next to the pool.
She opened her mouth to protest, but closed it before any sound escaped. A magnetic force drew her to him. Before she knew it, her arms were wrapped around his shoulders and she leaned forward until her lips met his. The pain from the cut shot through her face.
She flinched back. “I forgot about my lip.”
