He didn’t stop those mindless kisses, making her task even harder, but she finally got the belt unlooped from his jeans, and she shoved down his zipper. She would have gotten her hand inside his boxers, too, if he hadn’t pushed the two of them toward the bed. Not gently either. But she didn’t want gentleness anyway.
