excerpt

“Lex, I love
you,” he whispered.
I sucked in
a breath of air and fought like hell to keep the tears from falling. It wasn’t
the first time he’d ever said it to me, but this time, it felt so…different. A
tear fell, and he quickly brushed it away with his lips as he let out a low,
soft moan.
“You have no
idea how hard it is for me not to make love to you every time I’m with you. I
want nothing more than to be with you, but I want it to be right. I want it to
be perfect for you. I don’t want us to sneak into a barn or do it in a car. You
deserve so much more than that, sweetheart. I want to make you feel special the
first time we make love.”
Wow. Oh…just
wow. My breaths were coming out faster. I looked at his lips as I licked mine.
He closed
his eyes. “You drive me mad with desire, Alexandra. You have to know that.”
Oh dear
God…I think I might have an orgasm…right now…right here.
When he
opened his eyes, they were filled with something I’d never seen before. The
intense feeling of need I had for him grew about a hundred times.  I tried to talk, but only a whisper came out,
“Will…”
When his
lips touched mine, I let out a moan. I opened my mouth to him so that our
tongues could explore each other like they had done a hundred times before. I
brought my hands up and ran them through his hair. When he pushed himself into
me, I felt his hard-on, and I wanted to wrap my legs around him so badly.
The kiss
started to become passionate…until I heard someone clear his throat. I snapped
my eyes open right as Will pulled back and scrunched up his face.
“Shit,” he
whispered so that only I could hear.
He took a
few steps away from me as he ran his hand through his hair.
Lord, help
me.
I wanted
this boy, and even though I knew we had just been caught making out in my
father’s barn, my desire for him was so intense that I wanted to cry. I never
took my eyes off of him.
He winked at
me before turning to the side. “Dad, Gunner, um…I mean, Mr. Mathews…um…I mean,
sir…”
I closed my
eyes and took in a deep breath. Oh…holy…hell. My father just caught me making
out in his barn.
I tried to
compose myself as I pushed off the wall and turned to face my father and Will’s
father, Josh. I wanted to giggle over Will struggling on how to address my
father, but when I looked into my dad’s eyes, I knew that wouldn’t be the
smartest thing to do.
“So…” Josh
started to say as he shook his head and smiled at Will.
“Damn,
boy…you picked the wrong girl to get caught making out with in her daddy’s
barn.”
I quickly
glanced over at Will, who looked at my father and then back at his dad. He
smiled slightly, but then he looked back at my father and swallowed hard.
Dragging in
a deep breath, my father looked at us. “Alex, Will…I think y’all need to head
on up to the house and wait for us on the back porch.”
Will and I
looked at each other, and at the same time, we said, “Yes, sir.”
As we walked
out of the barn, Will grabbed my hand right in front of my father.
Will looked
at me, winked, and whispered, “I think that went well.” 
I just
looked at him with my mouth hanging open. “You must have a death wish.”
