Excerpt ~

Tate looked at me then, his focus back on us and not ‘those guys’. “I’m sorry Reese. I didn’t mean to get so upset…” He was running his hands through his hair.
“No really Tate. It’s best if we don’t come to these types of events…let’s go.” I rolled my eyes and started walking toward the door.
Tate grabbed my hand and pulled me quickly down the hall, so fast I almost stumbled on the way.
“Tate, where are we going?” I said. He was making me a little nervous with how tight he had my hand. Surely he wasn’t going to try to find those guys again.
When we got to the end of the hall, he stopped abruptly. Grabbing me in his firm arms, he kissed me, hard. There was no pause from the moment his lips touched my lips, his tongue was immediately caressing mine. His chest was pressed up against mine, his hands on my lower back. He drew back his mouth, quickly finding my neck. He was whispering between each kiss. “Oh. God. Reese. You. Are. Driving. Me. Crazy.” He let out a deep exhale of a breath. “I can’t get a hold of my feelings. I want you to know how much I love you, how much I need you.”

‘This’ felt so good. When we were like this, our electricity was almost deadly. Oh, how I needed him too.
