The reality of kissing Elena couldn't be as good as he remembered. Her body was trembling again and her eyes were snapping blue fire, but she wasn't trying to get away and he knew he couldn't get away with retreating from this kiss. Hell, it had been leading to this for the past few months, ever since they had met again. It was probably plain good sense to get it over with. He covered her lips with his. She inhaled sharply at the contact and he froze. Her body shook, and he dropped her wrist to cup her shoulders with his palms.
Her flower-scent bloomed around them and he tasted her desire in the heat of her mouth and in the way her tongue slid against his, as if she had to know its texture, too. All his muscles tensed, every one, everywhere, going rock-solid. He pressed her mouth harder, took the kiss deeper, and even though he felt his blood rush through his body and his heartbeat jump to unpwece-dented speed, his mind remained crystal-clear, as if to sear this new kiss in his memory. His eyes opened, and he saw hers as languid slits of blue, like pieces of hot summer sky.
She seemed glad to have something beneath her. **Oh, Mom has the story straight," he rephed, scrutinizing Elena even more closely. *'Can I get you something to eat? A beer? " She waved a weary hand. " When he came back in with two bottles of beer in one hand and a plate of cold pizza in the other, Elena was coll^sed against the back cushion of her chair. He handed her a bottie and put the pizza on the scarred end table between the two recliners, nudging over the remote control to make room. She took a long swallow of beer then cast him a look.
