“Wake up, baby.” Luke is brushing my hair off my face and gently kissing my forehead.
I want him to go away so I can bury myself in the covers and go back to sleep. It’s too early! “No.” “Come on, honey, open those pretty green eyes.” “I don’t have to.” He chuckles and kisses my cheek. “Come on, morning girl, wake up. It’s time to go get me all hot and bothered at the gym.” I roll onto my side and open one eye, peering at him uncertainly. “You hate me.” “No, baby, just the opposite. Come on, let’s get up.” He brushes his lips over my cheek and then my lips again and I sigh. “Let’s stay here and get all hot and bothered, handsome.” “Oh, no you don’t. Come on, up.” He slaps my ass and rolls away from me. He’s already dressed! “Oh Jesus, you’re a morning person. This could change everything.” I sit up and stretch and eye him warily. “Gonna dump me already?” He smiles delightedly. “I’m thinking about it.” I rub my hands down my face and realize I smell coffee. “Do I smell coffee?” Luke picks a mug up off the end table and takes a sip. “I brought this up for you, but since you’re dumping me, I’ll drink it myself.” I lunge up off the bed and dive for the mug in his hand. “Mine!” “Ah, ah, ah!” He holds it out of my reach. “You hurt my feelings.” His grin betrays him, but I play along, enjoying this game. “I’m so sorry. Can I please have that coffee?” I bite my lip and gaze up at him innocently through my eyelashes. He purses his lips and moves his head from side to side as if considering my request. “Well, maybe. If you kiss me.” I pucker up and lift my face to his, planting my lips on his cheek with a loud smack. “Now?” I ask. “Oh, I think you can do better than that. This is really good coffee.” He takes another sip and moves quickly away from me as I lunge at him again. Changing my tactics I slide my hand in his shorts and grip his growing erection in my hand, rubbing up and down. “Now?” His eyes dilate and he grins wickedly. “I do love the way you think, baby.” He hands me the mug and I release him, walking toward the bathroom. “Hey!” “I’m gonna get you hot and bothered at the gym, not here.” I toss over my shoulder and shut the door behind me while Luke laughs. “Honey,” he yells through the door, “You get me hot and bothered everywhere.”
