Hot for Fridays blog hop – Waking Dream edition

Welcome to my stop on the weekly Hot for Fridays blog hop.  This week’s theme is “hot and bothered”, and there are quite a few moments in the course of the Dream Series when Sara and Brian find themselves frustrated.  One of them takes place about midway through book five of the series, WAKING DREAM:

His hands are all over me, his lips are on mine, I’m pulling him close to me, on top of me.  God, I can’t breathe, I – I…

Now he’s pulling back from me.  No!  Don’t do that!  I can’t stand it!  I’m burning up inside, I want – no, I need him.  Right now.

There’s a blast of cold air; he’s lowered the window.  That helps.  What was I – what were we thinking?  There’s not a single car up here besides ours, but we’re still in a public place.  I knew where he was going when he made a left instead of taking the right that leads to the Beltway on-ramp.  And we do have a half-hour to kill, at least.

He’s panting and his eyes aren’t quite focused.  He needs the cold air every bit as much as I do.  When he recovers a bit, he says, “Do you have the slightest idea how gorgeous you look tonight?”

I do now, seeing myself reflected in his beautiful, perfect eyes.  Right now, we’re on the top level of the parking garage of the Pentagon City mall.  “You know there’s a hotel right here,” the big Ritz-Carlton, connected to the mall.  “How much room do you think we have left on the credit card?”

That’s unfair of me, to tempt him; I know we can’t do that.  It’s important to Brian’s job that we go to the party, and that we – both of us – make a good impression.  “Any other night,” he says.  “I’d take you up on that.”  He’s back in the driver’s seat now, calming himself down before he starts the car again.  I take the time to smooth my dress and touch up my makeup.  It’s not perfect, but it’ll do.

(the book is available on Audible as a fantastic audiobook, too)
