Excerpt (edited for retailers):
He led me to the dance floor and pulled me close. I closed my eyes and moved to the rave paced music. He started grinding his hips against mine, and I did the same back as I let the rhythm of the music take over. It was only for one dance; why not make it a little fun?
I glanced over at Courtney a few feet away as she ground on Nate. He was grabbing her hips, pulling her into him. She didn’t seem to mind one bit. Seeing her dance like that encouraged me to step it up a little. I didn’t want to seem like a total prude.
I flashed a smiled at Jamal and put my arms around his neck. I looked into his eyes while we danced and found myself getting lost in them. Maybe it was the booze, or maybe it was something else, but I was really getting into it. He became increasingly bold and rubbed his big hands all over my back. He gripped my back with both hands and pulled me against him hard. This caught me off guard and I let out a little squeal.
He laughed at me, but didn’t let go. I was turned on being in his muscular arms and feeling him rub against me. I couldn’t believe this good looking guy was so interested in me.
