With a deep breath, I step into the bedroom where Jacob is still undressing. He pauses, and his eyes travel the length of my body, stopping at my chest before moving on. I didn’t think my nipples could get any harder, but I’m proven wrong.
Our gazes meet again, and he picks up where he left off and finishes unbuttoning his dress shirt. He shrugs out of it, every sinewy muscle rippling with the movement. Being far tidier than me, he hangs the shirt over the back of the chair he uses for that purpose.
Next, Jacob removes his white undershirt, neatly folding it and laying it on the seat. My breathing increases at the sight of his completely naked chest. It’s not as though this is the first time I’ve seen it. But tonight is different.
I clear my throat. “I think now is a good time.”
“I believe that another orgasm had been tabled for later.”
His eyes widen a fraction. “Yes, something of that nature may have been mentioned.”
I run an appreciative gaze over him, taking everything in. All the dark shadows in several places, including along his ribs and on his right flank several inches from his belly button. I’ve seen these markings before, but naively hadn’t considered them to be gunshot wounds. Except for the one on his flank. It’s shaped a bit differently than the rest. A knife, maybe? I shudder at the thought, and my heart hurts for the pain he’s suffered. Despite the scars, his body is near perfection.
“It’s later,” I blurt out.
“So it is,” Jacob replies, wryly, as his hands go to his belt buckle.
