Love the Wine you’re with
by Mary E. Thompson
He could be just what she needs…
Alyssa Wright has one goal before she leaves for co
llege. She refuses to go carrying her v-card. She just has to find someone to give it to in the next six weeks.
When she runs into Jake Monroe, almost literally, she knows he’s different. She thinks about him constantly, and not in the way she’s thought about any other guy.
She might be what he’s looking for…
Between his new job and helping his best friend’s widow, Jake doesn’t have time for romance. But there’s something about Alyssa he can’t resist. He’s torn between the light Alyssa brings to his world and the promise he made to his best friend.
Is it enough to keep them together… forever?
What they want doesn’t matter. There’s a ticking clock, counting down the days until Alyssa leaves. Maybe for good.
“Come here,” he said gently, reaching for her. She went into his arms and rested her head on his chest, listening to the quickened beat of his heart. He was still hard, throbbing against her stomach at the same rapid pulse.
Wordlessly, his hands caressed her body. An innocent brush of hair from her neck. A simple stroke of her spine. Then a tightening of his hold on her. A lingering of his fingers on her waistband. A quickening of his breath. A need pulsing between them that neither of them could deny any longer.
Alyssa tipped her chin up to him the same moment he leaned down to claim her mouth. His kiss was different. Not gentle and sweet like the others. Possessive. Needy. He was taking ownership of her, demanding that she become his.
She met him with each stroke of passion. His hands slid down her back and cupped her ass, lifting her until she had no choice but to wrap her legs around his waist. The breeze blew up her skirt, cooling her skin until she felt the hard fabric of his shorts pressing into her. “Oh, God,” she moaned, breaking away from their kiss. Bolts of desire shot through her, giving her the first taste of what pleasure would be like with Jake.
His lips went to her neck, feasting on the skin she never knew was so sensitive. Her hips rocked on their own, rubbing her against his erection as he devoured her neck and drove her mad. She didn’t know what she needed, but she needed something. From him. Of him.

Mary E. Thompson grew up loving to read, like a good little girl. Many nights she would fall asleep with the flashlight still turned on as she hid under the covers trying to finish the last few pages of a book. As an adult, the light from her ereader means she doesn’t need a flashlight, but she still stays up way too late to finish a book.
When Mary’s not reading, she’s playing with her two kids or living out her own real life romance novel with her hubby. She has a weakness for chocolate, especially when it’s paired with peanut butter, and has been known to have a bad day just because there’s no chocolate in the house. Unless there’s wine. Then everything is okay.
Mary grew up in Buffalo, New York and swears she’s the only local to never ski or snowboard. Soccer was always her sport, with a couple adventures white water rafting and skydiving to keep things interesting. Mary moved to South Carolina for college but missed Buffalo every day. Yeah, she thinks she’s crazy, too. She somehow convinced her South Carolina born and bred hubby to return to Buffalo to raise their kids and live out their lives. He’s still not sure what he was thinking.
