Now enjoy an excerpt:
After dinner, Jack suggested they sit out on the patio to watch the stars. Mrs. Poole went into the kitchen to clean up while Aunt Mabry, Jack, and Kelly went outside with a bottle of wine and three glasses.
Aunt Mabry and Jack sat down in Adirondack chairs on the patio while Kelly poured the wine and lit the three squat candles sitting on a low glass table between the chairs. Jack took his glass from Kelly, looped an arm around her waist and pulled her down onto his lap.
He felt her tense briefly, but then she relaxed into him and he grinned. He knew he was getting to her as much as she was getting to him. Jack worried for a minute that it might be cruel to tease her as much as he did, but he quickly dismissed the thought. It was fun and he loved making her blush and squirm. Reluctance from a woman wasn’t something he was used to, but damn, it was like an aphrodisiac.
Jack kept his arms around Kelly’s waist and his hands rested on her tummy, but as they drank their wine and made idle conversation with his aunt, he found one hand moving just high enough on her stomach to let him brush his thumb back and forth on the lower curve of her incredible, full breast. He meant to do it to torment Kelly, but it backfired on him as he found himself burning with heat for her.
Jack took his other hand and brushed the hair back from her neck, pushing it to one side as he leaned over her shoulder to speak so that his words caused his breath to brush against her soft skin. He barely got a word out when Kelly sprang from his lap.
“I, uh, I’m going to go for a run. Forgot to do my workout today,” she said, pulling the excuse out of thin air. In fact, Jack was fairly sure she hadn’t gone for a run the whole time she’d lived there so far.
“I’ll, um, I’ll see you guys later,” she said as he grinned at her and stifled a laugh.
Aunt Mabry shook her head as she watched Kelly walk away.
“She’s an odd one, Jack,” Mabry said.
Jack grinned. “One of a kind Aunt Mabry. One of a kind.”
