If I kissed her now, one of two things would happen. We'd either get naked right here on the beach and probably get arrested, or I'd somehow manage to get us up the hill to my house, and then we'd get naked. But kissing her once, then letting her go. That... wasn't possible. I couldn't kiss her then go back to my ordinary life. I wasn't Superman. If I was, though, the girl in my arms was more lethal to me than kryptonite.
Miles jogged off, leaving her alone in the large and quiet room. Aimee stood still, waiting for her mind and heart to go back to normal, return to how she felt a week ago before seeing Miles again. But they didn't. Or wouldn't. She put both hands over her pounding heart, exhaled, and sank into a chair. Nut-burgers. Now what?

When he began to play again, then sing those first few words, Aimee felt a flutter in her stomach she wasn't able to squelch. She wasn't a robot, after all. And it wasn't so bizarre to get a little fluttery over a boy as talented and hot as Miles Carlisle. Millions of girls suffered the same ailment. But how many girls stood backstage, close enough that he'd accidentally felt her up in the dark? And how many of those girls had already had their heart broken by him?

Luke snapped awake to see the gray-haired woman looking at him while adjusting her glasses. She smiled like he was something to eat. "There aren't many good shots of you when Natalie was on your lap. She's either leaning over you, or you're at her neck like Bela Lugosi. Though there's one really good part at the end -
Hey, " Natalie said. "You're here early." "It's almost seven. Why are you covered in chocolate? Your clothes and your... your face. Both your faces." Luke looked at Natalie, really looked at her. Yep, she was smeared with chocolate like it was camo paint, transferred from his mouth to hers and back again too many times to count. "We were... " Natalie began. "We were just -" "Sampling, " Luke cut in. If Natalie had wanted Ivy to know, she would've come straight out with it. Ivy crossed her arms. "Sampling?" "Yeah, I'm interested in her... product. So she let me, uh, try some." Wow, he couldn't have sounded kinkier if he'd tried. "But it's all over the floor on that side of the lab. Like, all over the place. It's even on the wall. How did it get on the ceiling? You must be one sloppy eater.

Tell me if this is too forward, " he said in a low voice that was surprisingly shaky, "but do you want to come-" "Yes, " she answered, exhaling hot breath on his neck. He grinned and gave her hip a squeeze. "I must say, this has been the most pleasant surprise I could imagine." "You're not very imaginative, then." She gave him the flirty eyes. "Good thing I am.
And you do know I'm the one who decides who I date'-she glared at Sam-'not you. If I want to drag this guy into the janitor's closet and have my way with him, that's none of your business.' 'Drag me into a closet?' Hunter asked, his eyebrows up near his hairline. 'Offer to buy me dinner first, then I'm all yours.
