He arched down, grabbing my face between his callous palms, and a weird jolt of energy pulsed through me. Instead of pushing him away, strangely, the only thing I could think of was how long it’d been since I felt a man’s hands on my skin.

Oh, baby Jesus. Why does he taste like my three favorite things—coffee, mint, and cinnamon?
