And now for today's Sunday Smooch from Reunited ... In Paris by Sue MacKay.
When Dr. Tori Wells arrives to speak at a conference in France, she finally feels as if her dreams are coming true! Until her ex-husband, Dr. Ben Wells, turns up unexpectedly...
Ben might be a changed man after his pride nearly destroyed his career, but one thing certainly hasn't changed: the way Tori makes him feel.
Reunited in Paris, the city of love, Ben and Tori are forced to share the secrets that tore them apart seven years ago. Dare they take another chance on their future - together?
Ben and Tori spent the night in hospital with their friend who's had a heart attack. Now they've gone back to their hotel for some much needed sleep and breakfast, except Ben fell asleep in Tori's room while waiting for breakfast to be delivered and Tori didn't have the heart to wake him.
The alarm was harsh, the bleating phone worse. Tori blinked awake and reached first for the hotel phone. There was a weight around her waist. Warm and heavy, and comfortable. Familiar.
she muttered into the phone and hung up, slid her mobile phone alarm to off.
‘That went too fast,’ Ben growled in her ear.
Rolling over, Tori came face to face with him, and this time she did run her fingertips over his stubble-darkened chin. ‘You were asleep when I got back from Rita’s room.’
‘I was drinking coffee. How did I end up on your bed?’ he whispered. Then, ‘Who cares how? I’m here and I slept.’ His eyes held the rest of that sentence.
Sort of with her. Ben still lay on the outside while the bedcover hid her body from sight. Her dressed-only-in-lingerie body. ‘You’re going to have to leave so I can get up.’
‘In a moment.’ His head was inches from hers. Those startling eyes watched her with an intensity that reached deep inside her. That mouth that could do the most amazing things on her skin looked soft after sleep. His arm was still on her waist, only now she was being pulled closer to his body. ‘I’ve missed you, Tori. I’ve missed us.’
‘We were great together.’ What was she talking about? Their lovemaking? Or everything? Their life, their love, everything.
‘Did we give up too easily?’ he whispered, just before his lips brushed her forehead, then trailed down her cheek to her mouth.
‘Ben,’ she cried softly against his mouth, and her lips opened, pressed against his. Her heart.
Their mouths became one, moulded together, while their tongues got reacquainted.
Ben pulled her closer still so there was only the bedcover between them. All the while they kissed. Her eyes were wide open, watching him, drinking in every line, each eyebrow hair, his eyes that were watching her back. Benji.
Kissing Benji had always been her favourite way to start the day. His passion and love set her up and made her feel good. Like she was beginning to feel now. Warmth stole from their joined mouths, moved down to her breasts and the peaks that were tightening. Down to her stomach and beyond to that place that needed Ben, had missed him for so long, was moistening in readiness for him. Could they find the way back to each other? Right now anything seemed possible.
‘Hell.’ Ben pulled away and flopped onto his back. ‘Sorry.’
Me on top of the Eiffel Tower. What an amazing experience.
Question - Do you believe in second chances ?
