I am so in love with this story and I am so in love with this couple so yet again, I give you a small taster -- whoops, teaser -- from A Summer to Remember, part of the new Seasons of Love & Lust series!
How could I not fall deeper in love with him than I was already and yet, he still wouldn’t make love to me or touch me for some strange reason. I wanted to share my body with him, not because I was horny but I needed to feel him and have him inside of me, with me, knowing he truly felt the same way about me as I felt about him.
“I could make up all kinds of shit right now and tell you Ashley lied or she’s not telling the truth but both you and I know that isn’t so. I didn’t tell you and neither did Jude…not because we were ashamed or wanted you to be humiliated the way she did to you but he’s known for years how I have felt about you and as far as I was concerned, it was a closed subject.”
Paul made me face him and he cupped my face gently with his hands as he said, “Jerrica, you have always been the woman for me and I told your brother a long time ago I would be willing to lose our friendship behind being with you. Seriously, I have been in love with you from the moment you ran down the stairs with your brown hair in those silly little pigtails and those eyes…God, I remember your eyes. They were so full of light and joy.
“I would do anything to see that again inside you. I want to see you happy and peaceful. I hate that hardness that has etched itself into those gorgeous blue-gray eyes of yours because it simply isn’t you. You’re not that jaded and you aren’t a whore. You slept around, so what, do you think I care about that? I’m not perfect and God knows I don’t expect you to be. Please, just give me a chance to prove how much I love you and we can make all of this go away.”
My lips were mere inches from his and I leaned in closer until they touched with his and he kissed me gently at first. He didn’t want to hurt me and I completely understood. When my mouth opened and allowed his tongue entry, our kiss turned passionate and gut-wrenching. Every sexual part of me ached with the need to be touched and caressed by him.
He had brought me back to life with a kiss and I couldn’t help but think of the beauty in that sentiment. He’d saved me yet he didn’t even know it and I loved him all the more for just being there for me. He was the one and tonight, I would prove we were meant to be together forever.
To Be Continued....
