Jamie turns around and lowers his legs through the opening in the floor. Once his head disappears, I make my move to join him. Give me a minute,” he calls out, causing me to halt. After a few seconds he adds, Okay, come on down.”

I scoot through the opening and situate my feet on the ladder. I quickly descend three steps before pushing back to jump down like we used to do when we were kids. Unfortunately, Jamie is standing so close to the ladder that when I jump, I land right on top of him. We go down like a demolished building. 

After the inevitable crash, I demand, Why were you standing so close to the ladder?”

I was holding it for you so that it didnt tip over on you.” He sounds as annoyed as I am. 

It cant fall,” I tell him. Its attached to hooks in the concrete.”

How was I supposed to know that?”

I dont know, by using your eyes?” I shift to push myself up onto my elbows. Jamie does not make for the softest landing. As my body moves across his, he releases a pained groan. Are you hurt?” Im guessing a hundred and forty pounds dropping on anyone could cause some serious damage. 

Im … um… not really hurt.”

If hes not hurt, what is he carrying on about? And thats when the shock of my current position hits me like a punch in the gut. Im lying on top of Jamie!

I hurry to move my knee to the ground so I can slide off him, but I miss the mark—and wind up kneeing him right in the fellas.

Stop!” he yells. Youre going to turn me into a eunuch.”

Im trying to get off of you.”

But instead of pushing me away to facilitate our separation, he pulls me closer so that Im lying along his entire length. He puts one arm around me and rolls us both so that Im under him. Sweet Peter at the pearly gates, my entire body wakes up with an electric awareness. This is a delicious torture.

Jamie …” His name escapes my mouth like the last gasp of air before I shed my mortal coil for more heavenly pursuits. Although if there are more heavenly pursuits than this, I cant imagine them. 

Shh …” He doesnt move to get up, he just lies on me, wreaking havoc with my senses. 

I move my gaze to his face. He looks like hes in pure agony. Jamie,” I try again. 

My God, woman, cant you be quiet for a minute?” 

Suddenly my bones feel like theyre starting to melt. Why is he so mad? Then the truth hits me. Jamie is turned on by our current situation and hes trying to calm himself down. Which of course ignites a fire in me. 

The most gorgeous man Ive probably ever seen is lying on top of me, and hes totally affected by the situation. I squirm underneath him which causes him to groan again. Please stop moving.”

Why?” I practically purr. Are you uncomfortable?”

Im currently in a world of agony,” he growls. 

I dont know what comes over me, but I take that as an invitation. I move my arms up along his sides until theyre free. Then I cup either side of his face and raise my mouth to meet his. 

The feeling of our lips touching defies description. Its pure pleasure, its torment, its a coming home like Ive never experienced before. Every nerve ending in my body is alive and tingling. My heart is beating in overdrive. I have not kissed a man in nearly a year, and I do not remember it being anything like this all-consuming inferno.

Hes definitely kissing me back, which makes it even more surprising when he rolls off me and demands, What was that all about?”
