Here’s another snippet from To Hiss or to Kiss. This is the set up for Chloe’s first visit to Jorge’s house.
He takes the keys, pausing to give me a thoughtful look and, if I’m not mistaken, lingering overlong as our fingers brush during the transaction. I want to moan but bite my lip to stop myself.
His eyes are filled with heat again, even as they assess me with somewhat wary trepidation. “You don’t have much fear, do you?”
I shrug, walking to the passenger side and getting in, playing my bravado for all it’s worth. “Maybe I’m just blissfully naive.” I’m happy to hear him chuckling again. I’m sure he’ll figure out what I fear soon enough.
