Olympic medalist and X-game sensation Alex Spearman thinks
he’s perfect.
He’s not. I know his kind.

Rich, famous, and emotionally unavailable.

Well…He’s perfect enough to hook up with on the weekend of his sister’s

His sister is my best friend. This is a disaster
in the making.

Did I mention he’s also hot, sexy and funny?

How can I resist?

After a steamy weekend, I agree. We have chemistry.

But it just won’t work out in the long run.

He’s just a fond memory. That is…until he moves next door.

When I’m in need, the almost perfect man offers to help.

On a “friends-only” basis.

“Just friends,” he said. Yeah, right.

Is this the real deal or am I another medal to him?

Potter geek?”

She nods.
“Dad and I used to read the books when I was young. It’s our thing, you know?
We share our love for mythical creatures and magical worlds.” 

She smiles
widely. “When I was at my mother’s, I used to read the books by myself and
wished I was at Dad’s instead.”

“So now you
get to wear a unicorn necklace and look like a fairy?”

Suddenly, I
see darkness pushing her bright face. She grabs the handle and starts closing
the door. “Thank you again for everything.”

supposed to stay with you and binge watch a series or just watch a rom-com,” I
say, showing her my arm where I scribbled my notes.

expression smooths, and her lips slip into a charming grin. Her mouth is framed
by a pair of inviting dimples that enchant me.

“So tell me
about this first day,” I ask. “We could share some of the chocolate chip
cookies I got you.”

She steps
aside, inviting me in. “First experiences suck most of the time.”

kisses never suck,” I tell her.

“Of course
they do,” she protests with conviction.

I brush a
strand of her hair, leaning forward. “There’s always that little moment of
hesitation. When everything is almost happening. Like, right when you’re about
to touch her lips,” I say, my lips are so close to hers. “You wait though.”

“What do
you wait for?” she asks with sweetness and innocence.

“For her to
step back or lean into the kiss.”

“What if
she doesn’t move?”

“That’s my
favorite,” I answer before I brush her soft lips with mine.

She gasps
as I dip my mouth to hers. This is pretty much like going down the slope at
high speed. I can’t stop, I can’t hesitate. One wrong move and it’s a bust. I
have to control every movement, lead her. Lean where I want us to go. I slide
my tongue across her lips, and she opens them while she wraps her arms around
my neck.

I don’t
rush it though. If this is the only kiss I get from Hannah, I want it to be
perfect. My heart hammers as our kiss leads to more than just demonstrating to
her that a first can be extraordinary.

The small
whimper she makes as I slide my hand around her waist and pull her into me gets
me worked up. I hold nothing back, and she doesn’t either. I move my lips to
her jawline, nibbling her soft skin all the way to her earlobe.

She tastes
sweet. Like lavender, vanilla, and honey. I could eat her. Nibble every inch of
her skin, drink her all.

As she
pushes her hips up against me, trying to get closer, my eyes open. Our gazes
connect. I want to consume her. All of her. The pain from climbing the tree is
gone, replaced by desire—a hunger I’ve never come across before.

I run a
hand through the back of her neck, my fingers curl around her skull, gripping
her head tightly.

she asks between shallow breaths.

I nod.
“You’re in charge, do you want me to continue?”

She rises
on her tiptoes, leaning closer. This time, I devour her. Our tongues tangle and
fuck if the fire isn’t consuming us.

Lust and
adrenaline rush through my veins. I run a hand up and down her round, tight
ass. My length is turning into a piece of steel. Throbbing, needy steel that
wants to slide inside her. A sexy moan escapes her lips as I move between her
thighs and push her against the door.

Her legs
wrap around my hips, and anything besides fucking her is off the table. There’s
no restraint. For her, or for myself.

I break the
kiss, gasping for some air. “Are you sure about this?”

“I have
this theory,” she says. “Being with a guy for the first time being awkward and
meh. Do you want to prove me wrong?”
