Author Mindy McKinley won't tell us if a moment like that actually happened to her but she included one in her latest release- REMEMBER ME. You can literally feel the heat on the page only to have a dash of cold water tossed on the couple.
“Amy.” He drew her eyes with his commanding tone. “Come here.”
She shook her head. “What? I don’t … I mean, I’m already here.”
“No.” Jake patted his lap. “I mean come here.”
“But,” she argued, blushing bright pink and biting the lip he desperately wanted to nibble on. If he were mobile, he would have swept her off her feet and bent her backward with the most epic kiss he’d ever given. Followed closely thereafter by a caveman over-the-shoulder throw onto the bed.
“It will make me feel better”—he patted his thighs—“if you sit on my lap.”
Amy pursed her lips for a second but then let out a sigh. Muttering as if he had asked her to paint his house, she came around the coffee table and stood in front of him, not knowing exactly what he wanted. He reached out and grabbed her by the waist, guided her in front of him, coaxing her into a straddling position over his lap.
“See.” He sighed as her body sank into his. “Isn’t this better? Instead of you being way over there.”
Amy settled onto him, but she was stiff and unsure, her back perfectly straight. “Relax.” He drew a hand up her neck and to her cheek. When she softened into him, he dove his fingers into her hair and pulled her down for a kiss.
“I haven’t brushed my teeth,” she squeaked, trying to stop him.
“I don’t fucking care.” He growled and took all of her arguments away by searing his hungry mouth to hers. Her original protest melted into compliance, and in a matter of moments, her body was pressing fully against his, her tongue tangling deliciously with his own.
Jake moaned when she slipped her hands across his body, exploring his abs, his shoulders, and back. She let out a sigh of pure ecstasy when he brushed the thumb of his free hand lightly over the bead of her hard nipple. God, he wanted her, wanted to bury himself in her sweetness and never come up for air. He was hardening against her, and instead of scaring her away, she seemed to take pleasure in it, grinding her hips into him as if she, too, wanted release.
Jake was just about to slip his fingers under that fucking tank top, just about to reach the promised land he’d dreamt about for weeks, when he heard the front door open and heavy footsteps come up the hallway.
Amy froze, and with a squeak, jumped off his lap so fast that she fell right on her face.
“Oh my God.” Zach came into the room with a shit-eating grin on his face. He was clearly amused as Amy scrambled to her feet. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t know you had company.”
Awkward, right? Be honest... you chuckled a little too! REMEMBER ME is a standalone romance but it is enjoyed more if you have read the rest of the Baxter Boys series. After all, who wouldn't love a family of sexy and hot hunks?
A night she’ll never forget. A night he wishes he could remember.
High School librarian, Amy Foster is a heartbreaker. After having her heart crushed in college, she has stuck to a strict ‘love them and leave them’ policy that works surprisingly well until her most disastrous one-night-stand waltzes into her school during a college fair. Hot and arrogant, with a body of a god, Jake Baxter seems determined to break down her walls. Too bad he doesn’t remember they’ve already met.
Jake Baxter loves two things, baseball and librarians. He’s got the first wrapped up as a recruiter for the baseball team at the University of Illinois, but he’s yet to find the librarian of his dreams. When he runs smack into one at an East High college fair, Amy Foster is everything he ever wanted. Only trouble is, she swears they’ve met before and he finds himself desperately trying to make up for a night he doesn’t remember at all.
Can he convince her that he’s worth taking a second chance?
