He came closer and the heady scent of his cologne invaded her senses, making her lightheaded. She sucked in a deep breath and tried to steady her pounding heart. Yep, a whole lotta trouble, here.A smart woman would walk away.She was a smart woman.She was.She didn’t move. Instead, she reached out and stroked his cheek. His soft skin made her fingertips tingle.His lips parted.Blood roared through her ears, drowning out reason. Want—no, need—raced through her. Rising up on her tiptoes, she brushed her lips over his.He pulled back and stared, probably as stunned by her action as she but before she had time to say anything, he crushed her against his strong, muscular body. His mouth moved over hers, devouring its softness.Wave after wave of pleasure crashed over her. The rational part of her brain begged her to stop this madness. She’d only met the man moments ago. But, oh my, the taste of his mouth and the feel of his hands in her hair and his citrusy scent—A sudden noise had her jerking away from him. Turning, she found Reed standing in the doorway.Max uttered a soft curse.Reed chuckled. “Well, it looks like you two have met so I’ll spare you the introduction.”About Anna James
