Is there any hope that their relationship will progress beyond its rocky start? Can Raul overcome his partying nature to discover who he really is, and what he really wants from life? And can Veronica ever learn to trust a man who "lies for a living?"
- SNEAK PEEK -
Raul tried to pay attention to her, but kept getting distracted watching the sun shine off of her long curls, as he imagined being able to bury his nose in her hair and breathe in her smell.
His eyes must have looked unfocused, or Veronica noticed his lack of response to her words. "Hey! Are you bored? I get the feeling you're not listening to me at all."
"I'm listening. I hear words--but I'm not paying attention to what you're saying."
"Because all I can think of is how much I want to kiss you again. Your lips were so soft and warm. I want to taste them."
Veronica leaned back away from him slightly. "Why?"
"Because you're all I think about. You are the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing I think about when I'm going to sleep. I dream about you all night. But in my dreams I call you Nee-ca."
"Everyone else calls me Ronnie."
"I don't want to use a name that everyone else uses. I want to have a name for you that's just mine. To show you how special I think you are."
Veronica shook her head, smiling sadly. "That's just because I'm the only woman you've been seeing lately. You're going through withdrawals since you don't have your usual legion of female groupies throwing themselves at you. You'll get over it when the rest of the crew gets here, and people start treating you like the important movie star that you are."
"I don't want to get over it. I've never felt anything real for any other woman except my mom. But what I feel for you is growing stronger every day that I see you, and spend time with you--and learn from you how to be a better man. I don't want that to stop."
Veronica stared at him. "Really?"
Raul felt his pulse racing at the thought that she was sitting still next to him, so it was only a matter of him leaning forward just a little bit and their lips would touch. So he did.
Veronica leaned into the kiss and closed her eyes. Raul closed his also, enjoying the soft, warm caress of her lips. He lingered over that first kiss, and she opened her mouth slightly to sigh. He covered her lips with his again, and boldly licked at her mouth. She opened it even more, to allow him to explore her mouth, and her tongue met his and caressed him back.
Raul groaned. He balanced himself with one hand on the ground, and raised the other one to caress the side of Veronica's face, his fingers moving back into her hair to feel the silky strands that really were as soft as they looked. Their kiss grew in intensity, the passion of the moment possessing them both. One kiss became many, as Raul unleashed a tiny portion of his passion for this woman, afraid to let loose lest he scare her from responding. She met him at every increase...
