Well, it’s almost Christmas. Which means it’s probably nice and cold outside. So I’m giving you a hot excerpt from Worth the Wait. We’ve met Tasha and Jared and now it’s time for Tasha to ask Jared to do her a favor. Take her virginity. You’d think a man like Jared would quickly say yes, but despite his playboy ways being her first is a big deal. Two more weeks to go!
Jared took a few deep breaths. “I need to think about it.”
She squared her shoulders. “I need an answer before next week.”
His eyebrows shot up. “Why so soon?”
“It’s my birthday. I’d like to lose it before I turn thirty.”
“So you want to do it this week?”
Her heart lurched, but she tried to go for nonchalant and shrugged. “It’s not a big deal. I’ll follow you to your house and we can take care of it tonight.” Her voice shook.
Desire flashed in his eyes before he hid it and slowly shook his head. She’d seen guys look at her with desire before. He was tempted.
“We are not doing this tonight,” he said.
She stepped closer. “But we are going to do this?”
His eyes traveled from hers to her lips. She’d never noticed how dark they were, like melted chocolate. She licked her lips and his eyes grew darker. It was suddenly hard to breathe. Feeling a surge of confidence, she licked her lips again and he stepped closer. Her heart pounded, her breasts ached, and an unfamiliar tingling trickled between her legs as she breathed in the spicy mixture of cologne and Jared.
She was heated from inside out. It was heavy, sensuous, and left her euphoric. She leaned up, hoping he would kiss her. He lowered his head and her breathing shallowed. With a curse, he quickly pulled back and turned away. Disappointment hit her like a tidal wave. She’d never anticipated a kiss that much before, never wanted a kiss that much. The knowledge was exciting and terrifying.
Hesitantly, she reached out and placed her hands on his arms. He stiffened but didn’t pull away. Slowly, she leaned her body against his. The top of her head barely touched his shoulder. She took a second to get used to the feel of him against her. The softness of her breasts pressing against the hard muscles of his back caused a tremor to go through her. His body shivered in return. It was brief and so slight she only noticed because she was pressed against him so firmly.
“Are we going to do this?” Her voice was soft, throaty. The sound of her desire surprised her.
He took her hand and pressed it against the thick bulge in his pants. “You really want to handle this?”
Heat shot through her body and her panties liquefied. If any other man had done that she’d have cursed him out, but she welcomed his challenge. If she shied away from his boldness, then he’d say no. So with another prayer, and her face flaming, she softly squeezed his length. It got harder and her panties got wetter. It was thrilling. It was frightening.
“Yes,” she whispered.
