“You should have kissed me,” she said as they left the building.
Jake stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, forcing people to skirt around them. “What?”
“Now there’s all this pent up tension in both of us and sexual frustration can take years off your life. It’s a scientific fact. Humans give off pheromones and when there’s no release, it can lead to higher stress levels and ultimately a shorter life.”
He blinked. “You think we should kiss for medical reasons?”
Holly nodded. “I’m only trying to prolong your life.”
Jake laughed. “That is the worst pickup line I’ve ever heard.”
“Really?” She scrunched up her nose. “I thought it was pretty damn good.”
“Is any of it true?”
“In that case, let’s prolong together.” Jake took her hands and wrapped them around his waist. He’d never engaged in a public display of affection but then again, he’d never met a woman like Holly before, either. And it was just a kiss. He gazed into her eyes and was struck as always by her beauty and her impish grin. Lowering his head, he brushed his lips against hers first, then kissed her deeply, drinking her in. The heat they’d created between them that night in the hotel flared right back up. She tasted like the answer to all the nights afterward that he’d spent tossing and turning. She was captivity and freedom. Heaven and hell. Calmness and a storm. Drowning him under waves of desire.
When she nipped at his lower lip, Jake wanted nothing more than to rush back inside the building, find an office with a sturdy desk and satiate both of them until their legs wouldn’t hold them up. But the voice of reason intruded and he lifted his head.
“Not bad?” Jake arched his eyebrows. “I’ve been unfairly judged. I’m the best prolonger there is.”
