Flirty Friday - Ready To Run by Kinsey Holley

Nothing like a great visual to set the scene, don't you think? :)  Here's a quick excerpt from Kinsey Holley's Ready To Run:

Bryan rolled his eyes. “Enough with the chick stuff. Here, I got you something you actually need.”

“What is it?”

“Open it and find out.”

So she did. “Oh my God! This is awesome!”

“It’s a smartphone.”

She slapped his arm. “Duh. I haven’t been living in a cave. I know what they are—I’ve just never been able to justify the expense.” Her cell phones had always been the cheapest models—it wasn’t like she had lots of people to call, never mind texting or getting on the Web.

“You don’t need to justify this. It’s a gift. I added it to my plan.”

“I have to at least pay the monthly bill!”

“We can talk about it later. You really like it, huh?”

“I love it. I gotta send an email to someone. TJ, what’s your address? Oh, this is so cool!

She must’ve squeaked a bit too loud because he and Taran both winced a little, but he didn’t seem to mind when she threw her arms around his neck.

He turned his head as she kissed his cheek. His mouth found hers. His was open, and though she didn’t normally French kiss guys in the middle of a bar, it seemed the most natural thing in the world to part her lips and welcome his tongue.

A warm, limp, happy feeling gushed through her, all the way down to her toes. She sort of sagged into him. 
A part of her was appalled at this very public display. It was the part of her she’d meant to leave behind in Luxor, so she ignored it and gave herself up to the intoxication of his kiss. His tongue was cold from the beer he’d been drinking, and she loved the taste of it.

His hand was warm and heavy on her knee. As he ran it up her thigh, his thumb tracing the inner seam higher and higher, his fingers bumped into one of the rips on her new jeans. She started to giggle, and after a soft nibble on her bottom lip, he broke the kiss.

They stared at each other a minute, her gaze locked on his mouth. She couldn’t look in his eyes, but she could catch their expression in her peripheral vision, and she knew his gaze was hungry. A hot knot of excitement was forming in her stomach. When he started to draw his hand away, she surprised herself by grabbing it, holding it against her thigh. His eyebrows shot up and his smile got wider.

“Alrighty, then,” TJ drawled. “Hey! Can we get the check over here? Like, right now?”
