An Excerpt from Sweet
She tasted so good. Her mouth had tasted like mint and her lip gloss had been vanilla or some shit like that because when he licked his lips after he kissed her, it tasted like a muffin. Where the hell did girls even find stuff like that?
“I like your place.” She was looking around at his bedroom. “It’s really… clean.”
He nodded. “Yeah. I like to keep things organized.”
She bit the corner of her lip. “I can tell.”
Spider didn’t own a chair. The sole surface for sitting was his full-size bed, but that didn’t seem like a very good option if he was trying to get control of his dick.
Of course, the only other option was the floor.
“Um…” He gestured to the corner of the bed. “Sit. I’ll get you some water. Or milk. Sorry, I don’t have anything else. I’m not used to—”
“Spider.” Daisy was looking around, and her expression was amused. Not like, mocking amused, just sweet. Cause she was a fucking sweetheart. “It’s pretty obvious that you weren’t expecting company. It’s okay. Why don’t we go get a coffee or something? We don’t have to hide here.”
She thought they should be seen together? In public? “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
Cause I’m a fucking homeboy and you’re a decent girl. He shook his head. “Daisy, I like you—”
“I like you too.” Her cheeks were a little pink. “And I’m not embarrassed to be seen with you. Are you embarrassed by me?”
“Embarrassed by you?” He snorted. “That’s not the way this works, princesa. I’m the embarrassing one, remember? You’re Metlin’s golden girl. The last thing your reputation needs is someone like me.”
