Seducing the InnocentForbidden Confessions, Book 1
How far will she go to persuade her brother’s best friend to touch her?
And I’m all alone in the world—except for my late brother’s best friend.
But Oliver intends to move back to London.
I’m in love with him. I have to persuade him not to leave…somehow.
If I confess I’m a virgin and show him how far I’ll go to keep him, will he stay?
Maybe, but I also never suspected he’s keeping a shocking secret of his own…
Enjoy this Forbidden Confession. HEA guaranteed!
One of his warm hands leaves my breast and skates down my waist, settling over my hip to bring me closer. I can smell a hint of toothpaste and coffee on his breath.
“Have you let any of those tossers you’ve dated kiss you, Kayla?”
I swallow. What will he do if I tell him the truth? “A few.”
He scowls as if my answer pains him. “Did you like it?”
I wanted to, but… “It was all right. No one has blown my panties off.”
I suspect Oliver could.
His eyes soften. “Kissing can be wonderful. Someday, when you find a man you care about, one who knows what he’s doing, you’ll love it.”
I have a man I very much care about standing right in front of me, and the thought of kissing Oliver makes my body throb in arousal. I sway closer, pressing my aching breasts against his chest. “What about you? I’ll bet you know what you’re doing.”
The second the words leave my mouth, my heart careens out of control.
“I shouldn’t kiss you, Kayla,” Oliver practically groans.
“Please,” I beg. “Just once.” When he stares at my lips, they tingle. Everything in my body flushes hot. Even my skin feels too tight. And the ache between my legs coils relentlessly. “You’ve already touched my breasts.”
“Are you bloody trying to kill me?” His voice sounds rough with need.
That excites me even more.
“Is one kiss asking so much?” I clasp his T-shirt in my fists and tilt my face under his.
He hesitates for a long moment, his eyes searching mine, nostrils flaring, jaw rigid.
“Kayla,” he growls. “Goddamn it…”
Just when I’m sure he’s going to walk away, Oliver grabs me by the nape, holding me immobile. His breathing turns hard and rough. I tremble. He’s wrestling with himself. My heart revs. What is he thinking? Is there any chance he’ll kiss me?
Suddenly, he jerks me against his body and seizes my lips.
