LOVE IN BETWEEN TEASER ~ LUKE’S POV
I wanted us to make love for the right reasons. I didn’t want to be a one-night stand with her, and I’m sure she didn’t want to be one with me. I broke our kiss and looked at her. She had awoken something in me — something that’s been dead for a year.
“What have you done to me, Lily?” I asked her as I ran my fingers through her hair.
“The same thing you’ve done to me,” she responded.
“As much as I want you right now, I think we should wait.”
Lily looked at me and nodded her head. I pulled her into me and held her tight. “I’m scared. I don’t know where this is going. There’s so much I don’t know about you, and there’s so much you don’t know about me. I don’t want us to have sex on a whim and end up regretting it later. That’s not who I am, Lily, and I need you to trust me.”
She whispered in my ear. “I do trust you, and I agree with you.”
I tightened my arms around her. I thought she was perfect before, but now, she’s more than perfect. She got off of me and sat up on the couch. I sat up next to her and ran my finger along her shoulder, making small circles. “Will you go on a date with me tonight?”
