Title: Lovin’ You
Author: Lyssa Cole
Series: You and Me #1
The moment I met Levi Reed, I knew he was trouble.
Dark, sexy, and a musician to boot.
As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t stay away.
Raina Adams stood across for me that rainy night, the night that defined my life.
Something inside me shifted and inspiration filled my empty soul.
I wanted her, a pull so strong I couldn’t ignore.
Once inside, Raina giggles in my ear and pulls on my arm. “Um, what? What kind of connections do you have, mister?”
I flash her a wink and lead her down the hall and to the right. “When you want something bad enough, you find a way to make it happen.”
“Okay, but in the art building?”
“Yep.” We round the corner, and I stop at the first classroom on our left. When I open the door, the room illuminates with soft light, and I hear Raina gasp.
“No way,” she says as she moves in front of me, walking toward the piano with a look of awe on her face. “How? Where? What?”
I chuckle as I watch her sputter to herself and run straight for the bench. She slides all the way over and pats the seat next to her. I sit down, moving close so that our legs touch.
Raina runs her fingers over the keys with a goofy smile on her lips. “How did you make this happen?”
I hook one finger under her chin and turn her head to face me. My eyes drop down to her mouth, and I want to taste her. Need to taste her. “I have my ways,” I whisper before taking her mouth with mine. Pushing my tongue inside, I glide it along hers. The kiss grows heady, all hands, mouths, and teeth, but I pull away before I go too far.
I didn’t bring her here to make out with her. As much as I want to, there’s time for that later. I kiss her lightly and adjust myself in my pants, hoping she doesn’t notice.
She grins, and I find her watching me. Her tongue darts out and licks her lips, and I almost say fuck it all and take her right here on the floor.
Fuck, she’s gorgeous.
Fuck, I’m horny.
“You drive me crazy, girl, but I’m loving every second.” Raina’s long lashes flutter upward, and when her eyes meet mine, my heart pounds so hard, it feels like my ribs will break.
“Me too. Now, teach me some piano.”
I laugh and playfully bite her neck, which causes her to break into a fit of giggles. “Okay, okay. Do you know any of the keys?”
Raina shakes her head. “Uh, no, not really?”
She’s adorable. I can’t get enough of her laughter mixed with her sweet voice, and her cute jokes. “Let’s start with the basics.”
An hour later, Raina has most of the keys memorized. She’s a quick learner, but she loses focus easily. It doesn’t help when I can’t control my need to kiss her neck.
We laugh and joke, tickle each other and play around. I play her a couple of songs, the feel of her next to me fueling my musical soul.
“I want to learn those songs. They’re beautiful,” She looks at me with wide eyes, and I lean down and kiss her softly.
“I’ll teach you whatever you want. But I have one question for you.”
She nudges my shoulder as I finish the last notes of the song. “Yes?”
My stomach’s full of knots. I’ve wanted to ask her all week, but I was afraid she’d say no. The past six weeks of knowing her have been amazing.
“Will you please be my girl?” I watch her as I wait for her answer.
