Leap of Faith by JL Wilson
Here’s a snippet where Dru decides she might forgive Jak.
“I haven’t slept with anyone,” she whispered. When she raised her eyes and met his, he saw tears making her eyes glisten. “Not since the night we slept together.”
“Neither have I.” He lowered his head. “I was afraid if I did…”
Their lips touched. I was afraid to lose the memory, she whispered in his mind.
The touch of her lips ignited something in him. Jak tightened his hold, her body melding against his. He was consumed by her nearness, her taste, her scent. Everything about Dru seemed to fill him until he was drowning in her.
“I can’t.” She drew back with a gasp. “Jak, I can’t. You lied to me. I don’t know—”
Jak pulled her gently toward the bed. “Please, Dru. Please.” He moved his hand under her shirt and touched her breast, so warm and soft in his palm. She moaned with pleasure and Jak remembered the feeling of his hands on her body. He leaned back and she went with him, falling back on the bed and staring at him with a look that reflected his own hunger and desire
Jak, she murmured, her voice like a whisper touch on his psyche.
He stared into her eyes and for a heartbeat he felt as if he’d lost track of himself. Something was happening to him as he touched her. He knew with a certainty that if they made love, his life would be forever changed. Her mind, her body, and her spirit would be meshed with his and his with hers. This would change them forever. Jak started to pull away then he saw the love and wanting in her eyes.
All rational thought flew out the window as a burning heat ignited in his belly. Hands fumbled with clothing and soon Dru was lying next to him on the bed, his hands caressing her now naked body, her hands caressing him. The need to experience her was overwhelming. He’d thought about this all during the long, cold season past. Jak started to prop himself up on his elbows to cover her when she moved down his body, tasting his chest, his stomach, his thighs. Her soft hair brushed against his chest then his stomach as her tongue and lips nipped at him.
