Matt glanced back down at her, his lids heavy. A corner of his mouth kicked up in a smile. “Kissing you. I’ve wanted to since you got here.”
Another dark thrill chased through her. “Your whole family is downstairs."
“Well, that’s why I waited,” Matt said reasonably.
She bit back a smile. “What will they think? Your mother. Josh.”
“My mother will think we’re involved. Which is why you came, remember? And Josh already knows.”
It was hard to remember anything with her blood still pumping, her head still spinning from his kiss. She pressed her lips together. She could still taste him on her mouth. “If you invited me to save my reputation, you’d better get downstairs.”
“I didn’t . . .” Matt stopped.
Her heart drummed in her chest. She held her breath in anticipation. “You didn’t . . . what?”
“Nothing.” He smiled again crookedly. He glanced down at his wet shirt front and then at the bed. “Need help changing?”
