She panted, gold eyes watching him close. Gold eyes that were accusing him. “You didn’t tell me you were a powder keg about to go off.”
“What the hell does that mean?”
She stepped away from the fridge, but she never took her eyes off him.
“You kissed me,” Crush quickly argued, feeling the need to defend himself.
“I know,” she shot back.
“Then why are you looking at me like–?”
She pointed an accusing finger. “Don’t play coy with me!”
“You and I both know what’s going on here and I see now that I’ll need more time than just some quickie on your kitchen table. I’ll need a whole night to work with”–she moved her hands around in the air as if rubbing his entire body–“all this.”
Crush scratched his head. “I’m so confused right now.”
“That’s ’cause you’re not paying attention.” She shook her head. “I gotta go.”
“Why?” And his own question caught him by surprise.
“The kid’s expecting me home tonight, otherwise I’d totally stay. But I’m trying the whole good mom thing.”
“Yeah. Good luck with that.”
“I don’t like the tone and do not snarl at me.”
She took a step, stopped, walked back to him, and placed her hand against his crotch.
Crush jerked at the feel of her stroking his cock through the thick denim of his jeans. Of course, the way those fingers were working him, he might as well be naked.
“Goddamn,” she murmured, then again shook her head and snatched her hand away. “See what you’re doing?”
“What I’m doing? How is this my fault?”
“It is your fault. You and you big cock! Dammit!”
“Certifiable.” She wagged a finger. “But you’re not getting out of this now. Better put some time aside, because when I nail you, I’m going to need all night.”
Her cold gold eyes scowled down at his crotch again and, after what felt like forever, she stamped her foot, spun away from him, and stormed out, slamming his front door behind her.
Crush looked over at the dog gazing up at him from under the table. Where it was safe.
“I don’t understand how this is my fault,” he told Lola, which got him a vicious bark.
“You don’t have to be mean about it.”
