Drew climbed the steps. He could just walk in. He had a key, and she was expecting him. He wouldn’t, though. He’d ring the bell and wait for her to let him inside.
Before he could do anything, the door opened.
Not that he’d needed the reminder, but the black cocktail dress reinforced the fact Kelsey was a grown woman. “You look incredible.” He stepped inside, the knots in his stomach dissolving and anticipation taking their place.
Two splashes of pink spread across her face. “Thanks.” She cleared her throat and licked her bottom lip. “Come on in. I only need my jacket, and we can go.”
He’d thought about kissing her again all day. Before they left the house, he planned on doing it. Then later, after dinner, they’d finish what they started Sunday night. “First, I need to give you a proper greeting.” He slipped his arms around her and lowered his mouth toward her. If they were a few minutes late, Tuscany wouldn’t give their table away.
Kelsey stiffened, and for a second he thought she’d pull away. Just as suddenly, she relaxed again and met his lips.
He really intended the kiss to be a sweet one, nothing like the ones they’d shared Sunday. That type would have to wait until later when they were at his house. His intentions went out the window the moment she parted her lips for him. Sliding his hands below her waist, he pulled her tighter against him and drank in the passion of her kiss and the taste of her.
Kelsey moved her lips away first. “I hope you don’t give everyone a proper greeting.” The same fire he’d seen in her eyes Sunday night danced there now. “It could make certain situations a little awkward.” The lips he’d been devouring a moment ago curved into a smile.
Despite the sudden discomfort their kiss was causing, he couldn’t help but smile too. “That particular greeting is reserved for you, Kels.” He couldn’t resist giving her ass a little squeeze before he moved his hands back to safer ground. “We should probably go before I decide to show you what other activities I have reserved just for you.”
