He slid one arm around her waist, the hand with the vibrators still attached and shivering, beneath her hair and against her neck, and held her gaze. “What just happened?”
Zoe had her hands pushed against his chest again, holding him away. “What? What do you mean?”
“First of all, you’ve got to get out of the habit of pushing me away. Second of all, you’ve got to know they’re still out there watching us…probably hoping I’m going to do you right here, right now.”
Brooks tipped her head back and closed her eyes. Her chest rose and fell in quick breaths. “Oh Christ.”
He tightened the arm across her lower back, fitting his erection into the supple muscle of her lower belly, and tilted his head to taste her throat.
He turned, lifted her by the waist, and pressed her back to the wall. She automatically spread her legs, wrapping them at his hips and Taft sank toward her until she was compressed between the wall and his body.
“God, you feel good,” he murmured against her lips. “You almost make me forget I want to know why you wigged halfway through that little scheme.”
“I didn’t wig.” Her hands pressed to his shoulders as if she were considering pushing him away, but her thighs gripped his hips tight, her feet pressed hard at the small of his back, pulling him in. “I thought I handled it really well.”
“Whoa, baby. You just blew a few circuits.”
He slid his fingers across the skin of her belly, and she rocked her hips against his on a soft breath.
“Brooks…” he warned. “Do that again and your pants are coming off.”
“Then stop touching me,” she said. “I’m not a robot, Walker. And I’d have to be made of titanium not to want you.”
His heart thumped hard. He pulled back and looked down into her dazed eyes, sparkling in the dark. Remembered the feel of her mouth on his. He gripped her thighs and lifted them higher, pushed them wider, and leaned into her harder. And he moved, simulating what he’d like to do inside her.
Her lips parted on an intake of air; her eyes rolled back and her lids fell closed as she arched against the wall with a sound that punched blood between his legs.
“Of…course. I’m…human. But I also have impulse control. And I…don’t do the guys I work with.”
He took a second to run that through his mind a few times, then pulled back and looked her in the eye. “Seriously?”
Nope. Still wasn’t penetrating his brain matter. “Like…ever?”
Her answer was so final. So logical. She couldn’t be any clearer. He couldn’t continue to question it.
“Shit, I didn’t see that one coming.” He pulled her away from the wall and carried her toward the back. “Then let’s get off stage so I can put air between us.”
