His voice was hypnotizing, seducing her while his thumb moved up to stroke her lower lip. “But we both know how incredible we’re going to be together,” he murmured. “You can feel it, just like I do. We don’t know how this will all end up, but we know we have right now, and we have this.”
He pulled her slowly up against him, as if he didn’t want to frighten her. His arms moved around her and one of her own hands crept up to his chest, feeling the hard slab of muscle and the heat of him through his shirt. Lizzie raised her eyes to his.
She pulled back. “Is that really the line you use? ‘We have right now!'” she mocked. “‘Who knows what tomorrow will bring!‘”
