Caught between what should’ve been and everyone’s idea of who I should be, I had to find myself again. That was easier said than done with an interfering, overbearing family like mine.
I told myself I was done rescuing my irresponsible sister, but I didn’t expect flying across an ocean to help her one last time would lead to my own saving.
It was when I surrendered to desire and released my past that love taught me just what could come from letting go.
“Why do you want to be with me?” Tracing my fingertips against his jaw, they tickled with his frantic pulse beneath my touch as I lowered my palms to his bare chest. Rhys took his hands from cupping my jaw, his eyes bright, gazing at me like I’d frozen before him.
“Why wouldn’t I want to?” He replied, tugging his thumb against my bottom lip. “You deserve to be in control, Mia. I asked to kiss you. I didn’t ask for permission for more. I need you to tell me what you want because, right now, I’m yours and I’ll do anything you want me to do.”
I let myself fall against him, cocooned in the warmth of his powerful arms around my bare back.
Breathing his addictive scent, my reply slipped. “I want you.”
Weakened beneath the pressure of his chest against mine, I thought of his words. Control. I wanted it but, in the same breath, I knew I was losing it. Maybe that’s what control was, the awareness and acceptance of what we desired and being mature enough to handle whatever happened next.
But I couldn’t think beyond that moment. Rhys’s fingers knotted in my hair, giving him strength to move my mouth wherever it needed to meet his. Our tongues intertwined, addicted already.
