I love first kisses. I can still remember my first ever kiss at thirteen. It was awkward and strange, but it was special because it was my first kiss.
I also remember my first kiss with my husband. Awkward and strange weren’t anywhere near the words I’d use to describe that kiss! I was already well on my way to falling for him by the time we kissed, something we waited for so we knew emotions and a physical relationship wouldn’t get confused. It’s been fifteen years since that first kiss, but he still kisses me the same way. Like he can’t get enough!
For Andie and Cody, their first kiss was a little like mine with my hubby. A bit of a shock, but oh so very worth the wait!
Excerpt from Love At First Fight
Her eyes snapped open. He was close. Close enough that it wouldn’t take much for her to press her lips to his. He was taller than her, but she could reach with her heels on. There was no one around. No one to witness her embarrassment. No one to chastise her for throwing herself at him.
He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, lingering on the strand just long enough to muddy her brain. She wasn’t wrong. She couldn’t be. Right?
She couldn’t second guess any longer. She had to know.
Andie launched herself at him, throwing her arms around his neck and pressing her body against his. Their lips came together with a surprised grunt from Cody. He wrapped his arms around her, catching her more than embracing her. His lips didn’t move. Didn’t respond to her attempt to kiss him. Shame melted past the desire that had filled her just seconds ago, and she started to pull back.
Then his arms tightened. A groan tore from his throat. And he took over the kiss.
One hand dipped to her waist, pressing her against him. The other cupped her jaw, his fingers tickling the sensitive skin behind her ear. His lips were warm against hers. Full. They covered hers the same way he covered her. Made her feel safe.
He tentatively brushed her lips with his tongue. She opened for him, pushing away the thoughts racing through her head saying she was making a mistake. She couldn’t play Cody. He’d learn the truth. Except when he did, he wouldn’t add to the lies like all the others.
Andie pushed away from him as quickly as she’d thrown herself at him. He didn’t get the memo so his arm was locked around her waist. She struggled against his hold until he released her.
“What…?” he asked, but she was already gone. Inside. Safe. Away from the hottest kiss of her life. The kiss that made her rethink everything she’d always known about men.
