The Martha's Way Series
I take one last look to make sure my makeup is perfect and everything is in place as I hear the knock on the door. I nod to myself in the mirror. “You’ve got this.”
Shaking my head at my pathetic pep talk, I head for the door, but I don’t expect what I see once I open it. Ben is standing there with a couple of bags in his hands, but it’s the outfit that has me speechless. He’s wearing jeans and a T-shirt, too. I can’t decide if he looks better casual or in a suit. They both make me want to rip his clothes off.
He clears his throat on my second trip down his body. “May I come in?”
Embarrassed I got caught looking at him so closely, I put my fingers to my forehead. “I’m sorry.” I look at him again and tilt my head. “I thought we were going out.”
“That was the original plan.” He shrugs and adjusts the bags. “Then I wondered why go out when all I could think about was taking you home.”
I look down his body that’s filling my doorway and back up to those lips I couldn’t get out of my mind the first night I met him. I probably would spend the entire evening trying to get him to take me home. I back up. “Please, come in.”
“I hope you like takeout.”
I shut the door behind him. “Yes, of course. I don’t cook a lot for myself.”
I walk over to the table where he set the bags, but before I’m able to look in them, he grabs me by the waist, pulls me close, and kisses me. Who needs dinner?
He kisses my neck and works his way up to my ear to whisper, “I brought dinner. You supply dessert.”
I’m breathless and can’t find my voice, but manage to whisper back, “Let’s see this dinner first.”
His eyebrows rise slightly, and even though he isn’t fully smiling, I can tell he’s amused by the crinkles next to his eyes. “You doubt my . . . dinner?”
How I find my voice is a mystery to me, but I do. “I’m a prove it kind of girl.”
His smile tells me he has no doubt proving it whenever I want. I want it now.
