Scooping up more of the food, she stared right back at him.
“I’m sorry about Dorothy.”
“Why?” he asked.
“She’s your sister.”
“She dated a guy who turned out to be gay. Dorothy will get over it.”
“You’re not a little worried about others exploiting her?”
Quinn throw his head back and laughed. “Baby, I’m more worried about the men than my sister. She’s a massive manipulator.”
Kaley licked her lips, thinking back to Quinn staying in their apartment. Her heart pounded as she took another bite of the casserole.
“Dorothy did it on purpose, didn’t she?” Kaley asked.
“She knew you were going to be here that day. Not once did she tell me about you or even give any hint of what was going on. Both of you planned for that day.”
He didn’t look away from her, confirming her suspicions.
“Why didn’t either of you tell me?”
Quinn took a drink of soda before he started talking.
“All the time I’ve known you, not once have you been in my company for long. You always scamper away from me or find a reason not to be alone with me. Dorothy knows my feelings when it comes to you. I asked her if I could stay here so you’d get used to what I want.”
Kaley stood, taking her plate into the kitchen. His words were not what she expected. She put the plate in the sink then turned around, freezing. He stood right behind her.
“What do you want?”
He leaned around her, trapping her against the sink. She licked her suddenly dry lips once again. His closeness had her gut clenching and her pussy melting under his intense gaze.
“I’ll show you.”
Quinn cupped her cheek, tilting her head back.
She couldn’t speak. Words formed on her tongue yet didn’t come out. What should she say or do?
Then his lips were on hers, and all other thoughts left her mind.
Quinn’s cock pressed against the front of his jeans, threatening to burst through. He’d imagined Kaley in his arms, yet nothing had prepared him for this instant attraction. Her skin was soft, her body full and round. The need to take her was strong. He wouldn’t back down. Those stories she kept locked away in a computer sealed with his name meant he wasn’t going to let her go.
She’d lost all chance of getting away from him.
With his other hand, he slid it around her waist, drawing her closer.
He slid his tongue deep into her mouth, moaning as he did. She opened up to him like a delicate flower. Within seconds her hands were on his shoulders, gripping tightly.
Breaking from the kiss, Quinn stroked her cheek. “Now you know.”
“You came here for me?”
“I quit being a Seal for you. I did my time, paid my folks’ price. I wanted you the moment you graduated school. I know I’m fucking crazy for wanting someone so young, but you’re different, Kaley. You’ve always been different to me.” He caressed her back, never wanting her to go. Her eyes were bright as she looked up at him.
“I don’t know what to say.”
“You don’t need to say anything. I want you, and I’m not going to let you go.”
“You didn’t need to stop being a Navy Seal. I’d never stop you,” she said, touching his face. Both of her hands were shaking with tremors from the way she held onto him.
“It was a distraction. Now I’ve got you. You’re all the distraction I need.”
“Wait, the only reason you became a Navy Seal was because of me?” He nodded. “You could have gotten yourself killed.”
“Baby, I needed to give you time to be alone. You were young. I respected my mom’s advice in giving you space.”
“She knows why you’re here.”
“The only person who doesn’t know why I’m here is you.” He fingered the edge of her shirt. Sliding his fingers underneath the shirt, he touched the smooth flesh of her stomach. He wanted to touch her without any clothes between them. Without asking her permission, he began opening her shirt, revealing her beautiful body to his gaze.
“What are you doing?” she asked.
Kaley didn’t fight him as he removed her shirt. She wore a sexy red lace bra that showed off her nipples. His cock ached with the amount of blood pounding through his veins.
