Tessa stopped to stare at him. He was lost in thought, probably making a business deal on some new property. He was shirtless, just the way she liked him. His tight, toned abs disappeared into his navy blue board shorts. She followed the light dusting of hair that created the sexiest line down his rock hard stomach. His hair was a perfect mess, not at all his usual manicured and styled she had become accustomed to. Vacation suited him. He hadn’t bothered to shave either, giving him a rough edge on this late morning.
Totally hot and doable…
“Dragging this morning?” He grinned, but still hadn’t caught a glimpse of her. “Maybe I shouldn’t have–” He stopped when he lifted his head and made eye contact with her through his sunglasses. “Holy crap.” He flipped the sunglasses on his head to get a better look at her.
“Where’s the rest of that bathing suit?” He dropped his phone into the beach bag, never taking his eyes away from her body.
“Do you like it?” She spun around, making sure to shake her backside at him before turning to face him.
“There isn’t much to like.” He scrubbed his hand over his stubble covered jaw.
“Oh.” Disappointment filled her when she thought he wasn’t pleased with her appearance. “I thought you’d like it.”
“I love it.” He reached for her hand. “I just meant that, well, you’re practically naked and…”
“This has to do with your possessiveness of my body and your need to censor the thoughts of every guy I come in contact with?”
“Something like that.” He continued to gawk at her. “You can’t go out in public like that.”
“We’re not going in public.” She nodded toward the ocean. “I thought it was a private beach.”
“This one is, but if we were to vacation at a resort I think I’d have to approve your pool attire.”
“Approve?” She fisted her hand on her hip. “Do I need to remind you who gets the final say on what I wear?”
“Let me rephrase that.” He sighed. “If I don’t get a say in what you wear when we’re at a pool or a public beach, I could very well serve fifteen to life.”
