#SavingPoughkeepsie Teaser (pre-edit!)
Livia turned her head. “You better convince me. So far you’ve talked about the dog going to the bathroom, trash and dirtiness.”
Blake kissed her jaw and turned her head gently, kissing her mouth as she bit her lips together.
“Can’t I just convince you with my manly ways?” He wiggled his eyebrows.
He could, of course, do just that —but she shook her head.
She loved the playful sparkle in his green eyes. His five o’clock
shadow just made him more handsome, framing his kissable lips with
“Okay.” He put his fingers at the bottom of her
shirt, lifting it gently so he could circle her belly button with his
index finger. He put all of his considerable attention on her then,
slightly fuzzy from his alcohol intake. “You’re the sexiest, most
beautiful woman on this planet. So sexy, in fact that I had to have you.
I had to make you bare my children because my universe and yours had to
be combined. Everything I’ve ever been needed to be buried inside of
you, so deep, so full of love that we created life. Twice.” He lifted
her shirt and kissed the tops of her breasts, whispering his devotion
into her skin. “And it’s never enough. Unless I can hear you coming, I
can’t think of anything else. All day every day. You’re that powerful,
Livia. This. Us. It’s so intense that years haven’t cured me. I can’t
stop wanting to make love to you.”
