DELIRIOUS by M.S. Force
A knock on the door has my heart doing backflips. He’s here. I jump up to open the screen door for him, and I’m struck once again by how beautiful he is. Dark wavy hair, incredible blue eyes, made more so by the light blue shirt he’s wearing, and a body to die for. He’s carrying a huge armload of flowers and a bag.
I hold the screen door for him. “Come in.”
“For you,” he says, handing me the gorgeous and fragrant arrangement. I recognize lilies and snapdragons and my favorite, white hydrangeas. I love that he included them, which means Natalie must’ve told him they’re my favorite.
“They’re beautiful. Thank you.”
He offers a small smile as his gaze lands on my lips, letting me know he wants to kiss me but won’t with Logan looking on.
I burn for that kiss.
“She’s napping. The cut was hurting earlier.” I nod toward the kitchen. “Want to help me put these in a vase?”
In the kitchen, I put the flowers on the counter and turn to him, resting my hands on his hips. “Hi,” I whisper.
“Hi, yourself.” His voice is gruff and sexy, and I wish I could be alone with him. That thought is unprecedented for me. I’m not the kind of mom who yearns to be free of her kids. I love being with them, and they’re never too much for me. The three of us have been a unit for so long. But now…
His lips brush against mine, clearing my brain of every thought as I process his nearness, his scent, the tingle of his late-day scruff against my face.
I take a deep breath.
He shifts his attention to my neck. “Long fucking day,” he whispers.
“Were you busy?”
“Yeah, but that’s not what made it long.”
He shakes his head. “Waiting for this made it long.” His arms slide around me, bringing me in close to his fully aroused body.
My reaction is instantaneous, my legs are like rubber bands wobbling under me. The last thing I want is to put a stop to something that feels this good, but we can’t do this now. “Kristian…”
“Hmm?” He seems to be breathing me in, which I find wildly erotic.
He freezes, raises his head and takes a step back, but his eyes… His eyes are on fire for me. “I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be. I wanted that as much as you did.”
“I’m not sure that’s possible.”
