Just THREE MORE DAYS!!!! But, for those of you who can’t wait, here is a little bit of Dante for your Saturday morning. Remember, to Preorder A Santini in Love and pick up Falling for a Santini which is only .99 right now!
“I don’t know if letting your sister run off with JT was a good idea,” she said, pulling into his driveway.
“Aw, he’s like a brother to her. He’ll make sure she gets home okay. Besides, if anyone tried anything on her, even a little tipsy, she would be able to kick their ass.”
“Hmm,” was all she said.
“Thanks for the ride home, Mad Madison.”
“I already said that.” Then she chuckled. “I can’t believe that girl calls me that still.”
She was smiling and it was like that first day he met her. She was his sister’s roommate and she’d been so cute…and sexy. So fucking sexy.
“What?” she asked.
Before she could stop him, he leaned forward and brushed his mouth over hers. She stilled. He pulled back and licked his lips.
“What did you do that for?”
“I’ve been wondering what it would be like since the first time I saw you.”
“You have not.”
He closed his eyes and pictured her that day. “You had your hair up in a ponytail, all sassy and curly. You were wearing an old high school t-shirt, black and gold, and a pair of worn jeans that hugged your hips.”
He opened his eyes. She looked stunned. “Oh, hell, I left Madison Baker speechless.”
He leaned in again and deepened the kiss this time. Raising his hand, he cupped her face and slid his tongue against the seam of her lips. She hesitated then opened her mouth. He dove inside, enjoying the warm, wet comfort of her mouth. She moaned, the sound of it vibrating against his tongue and through his body. Hell, he felt it in his soul. He leaned closer still, pressing his body against hers. He was seriously thinking of inviting her into his house when she leaned against the horn. The blaring sound was like cold water. They both pulled back.
He opened his eyes slowly. She raised her hand to her lips and brushed them against it.
“I think we might need to explore this new development,” he said.
She was shaking her head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea, Dante. I have issues.”
He snorted. “That sounds like an excuse.”
“Let’s just say that you like to kiss me. I like to kiss you and maybe we need to explore this whole new thing between us.”
He leaned in and stole another kiss. “Yeah, I think so, but I’ll let you sleep on it.”
