Two hours later, V was standing on Zane’s front porch. For five minutes she had been pacing back and forth, trying to convince herself to knock on the door. She couldn’t bring herself to do it.
When the door slowly opened, V stopped mid step and stared at the man standing casually in the doorway. Her eyes traced every graceful move of his lean, magnificent body as he braced his hands on the top of the doorjamb and leaned into it, his eyes focused on her. The movements made every muscle in his upper body stand out in stark relief. Oh, damn. She let her eyes trail slowly down his thick, ropy biceps, over those sexy as hell back muscles that flared at his sides – lats, she was pretty sure they were called – over his pectorals, his washboard abs, and that enticing, perfectly sculpted “V” that disappeared into the waistband of jeans that had seen better days. Her eyes even wandered down to see his beautiful feet were bare.
“Were you planning to stay out here all night?”
As though his words were liquid and she’d been dying of thirst, V’s body soaked up every nuance of every syllable; the raspy, deep rumble settling some of her tension.
“I thought about it.”
Zane pinned her with that wicked sexy grin, followed by a knowing wink and V suddenly felt a shift in the air around them. How did he do that? How did he make everything better with just a tilt of his sensual lips?
“Come in.” Raspy and sexy, his voice soothed her and gave her the courage to accept his offer.
It wasn’t like she had much of a choice. If she didn’t go inside, they’d never be able to have a conversation because standing on his front porch, V was barely able to ignore that intense memory of what they had done right there against the wall just a few short months ago. That night had been perfect. The first night V agreed to go back to his house and they hadn’t even made it through the front door before Zane had shoved her against the wall as they devoured one another. Right there, out in the open, Zane had rocked her world.
Putting one foot in front of the other, V managed to get past him and through the front door as his uniquely male scent assaulted her senses and nearly had her stumbling in her four inch heels.
