He stalled, then took a few measured steps in my direction. His midnight blue eyes found mine in the reflection. They said words he couldn’t say out loud, I was sure of it. They also held things I didn’t want to see. Caution. Fear. A warning perhaps. Selfishly, none of that mattered to me then. For once, I wanted to feel him near me. Without the barriers of the office setting, the obvious professional and emotional walls that kept us from any kind of intimate connection. If I’d imagined Daniel felt the same attraction or would continue to deny it, I’d risk the humiliation for a moment of his body close to mine. So close I could feel the heat generating from him. Yeah, it was worth the risk.
He pushed the door open farther and came up behind me, never leaving my gaze. “The zipper?” His deep, sexy tone buzzed in my ear, a breeze of his warm breath danced across my neck, sending my stomach off to flutter again.
I swept my hair over one shoulder and nodded. His hooded eyes left mine. Two fingertips brushed my back as he slipped them over the top of the dress, one hand easing down the zipper, warmth traveling to my needy places with every inch lower. My exposed back screamed for him to run his hand along it. I turned my head to the side, calling his eyes to mine. When they met, my breath hitched and then quickened, working in time with Daniel’s.
I don’t know how long we stayed locked in that position, but when I felt Daniel’s other hand smooth down my hip, my lips parted with the small gasp of air I took in. His eyes fell to my mouth and appeared a shade darker, like he was discovering this part of me for the first time. The muscles on his strong jaw clenched. I leaned into his firm chest, placed my hand over his, and felt his grip tighten on my hip. My lids involuntarily fell closed as my head rested back against his shoulder.
“Gray,” he whispered.
My insides melted at hearing my name in that heady tone. My eyes opened and went straight to his mouth. I’d never desired anything so badly in my life as being kissed in that instant by Daniel Harrison.
