“To be clear, you want me to kiss you the next time we’re out together. Like, where there are people around.” He didn’t think the farm would count.
And, totally unrelated, he wondered if they should go out somewhere tonight, someplace where people were around.
“No, I think we need to practice first.”
Practice? Nelson straightened on the couch. Oh yeah, he was up for that.
“I’m good, but if you want a chance to make sure you’re up to speed…” He raised his eyebrows. This research was sounding better all the time.
“Of course you think you’re a good kisser. All guys do.”
There she went, giving him grief again.
“I am a good kisser. Do you need references?”
Mariah waved off his assertion. “You really think any woman would tell you if you were bad? We’re brought up to be nice.”
If this was Mariah being nice…
“You think you need to teach me how to kiss?” Seriously, this woman was enough to drive a man to frustration. Frequently.
She was sitting upright, chin raised. “I don’t know if I need to teach you or not. But I’d like to try it in private first, in case we need to work on it.”
What, she was going to critique his kissing performance? Not happening. He’d make sure she had no complaints. And he needed to derail this line of thought right now.
“Mariah, I don’t know what kind of ‘working on this’ you think we might need, but if you want to kiss me you could just say so.”
Perfect getaway book to read for Valentine’s Day! There is so much to love about Carter’s Crossing. The people, the old mill, the vet and the atmosphere. I read the book in one day and enjoyed every page. Heartwarming, clean and a feel good story. It was nice to see that both Mariah and Nelson were imperfect and real. They didn’t’t get along all the time but they were willing to work through things with determination and hard work. They each had histories to overcome. It is refreshing to have real characters. Nelson is caring and fun, Mariah independent and headstrong. I also enjoyed the healthy sense of self Nelson had come to through his experiences. Mariah being homeschooled on a boat at see was a fun touch. I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I received a copy of the book to review from the publisher. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
