Salomeh couldn’t breathe. Julian had her pressed against the elevator bank, crushing his mouth over hers and angling his hips forward, heedless of who watched. Lodged between the cinder block wall and the rival hardness in Julian’s jeans, Salomeh didn’t care much either. He felt so good. Everything about him was strong and sexy and enticing, and he didn’t treat her like a fragile flower. He was exactly what she needed right now.
She had intended to have fun chatting with him and then call it a night. Somewhere along the line that intention had upgraded into dancing her blues away with him, and then calling it a night, and now here she was. There was something so damned attractive about the man. He was hot, of course, but he was also smart and funny, and he laughed at her jokes without thinking she was a dork. Something about him rekindled the fire within that the past few weeks had threatened to douse permanently, which was as exciting as it was frightening. Part of her wished it was only a physical attraction. Julian seemed like the kind of man a woman could easily fall in love with.
She pushed the thoughts out of her mind, chiding herself for even thinking that particular four-letter word when there so many others presenting themselves at this very moment. Kiss. Lick. Fuck.
Salomeh captured his lower lip between her teeth, biting down gently just to see if he would let her. His hands moved from the wall at either side of her head to her face, cradling it gently as he kissed her with barely restrained fervor.
“You taste so good,” he groaned into her mouth. “I’ve been dying to know how you taste, everywhere.”
Other men had tried talking dirty to her, but it usually resulted in her laughing or telling them to cut it out. But it was different with Julian. She could suddenly see the allure of the gamekeeper in Lady Chatterley’s Lover. From the right man, a few naughty words could have almost as much effect as the actions they implied. She was fairly certain if Julian whispered the word “cunt” to her, she would come on the spot.
“You’ve only known me for a few hours, Julian,” she teased, slipping her hands under his shirt to feel his warm skin. “Are you that impatient?”
“You have no idea,” he said, before fusing his lips to hers again.
His fingertips traced a path down her neck and over her collarbone to cup her breasts, thumbs flicking at her nipples through the material of her dress. Salomeh gasped out a breath as she arched into his touch. His lips were on her neck now, gently nipping as his hands continued their ministrations.
Sensation overwhelmed Salomeh, the warmth at her sex diffusing slowly through her body, gaining momentum as it spread.
“The elevator needs to get here now,” she gasped, clutching at his wrists as he tweaked her hardened peaks between thumb and index finger.
“This elevator can take its time,” he whispered.
With a few deft steps, he maneuvered her around to the other side of the elevator bank, which was shrouded in shadows and facing an empty stretch of rooftop. The sounds of the party still surrounded them, but they were hidden from view.
“Should we take the stairs?” she asked, but she had already seen the way his eyes were dark with lust, and she knew hers probably looked the same. Every part of her body was screaming for Julian’s touch in a way she had never experienced before. She’d felt desire and infatuation, but this was something entirely different.
He grinned at her and shook his head in answer to her question, and her belly flipped in anticipation.
