Can't Let Go - Jessica Lemmon

"Is this weird?"


"It's ... different." And not in a bad way.


"I don't want you to leave." He took a steadying breath. "Unless you're freaked out, then say the word, and I'll take you home."


"I don't want to go home," she whispered.



*eyebrows knit* Erm, okay. Well, they're involved in a pretty heavy makeout session, his shirt's off, her shirt's off - and then she panics and wonders what the hell she's doing. 


Aiden is sweet here - he stops immediately, only looks at her eyes, and holds up his shirt for her to cover herself. 

Then, because apparently he didn't want her to leave, he picks her up, carries her to his bed, undresses her (except his shirt and her panties), and undresses himself, then snuggles with her...leading to the above conversation. 


I just feel like there had to be some other way to salvage this, right? What's wrong with getting dressed and cuddling on the couch and watching a movie? Talking? Playing a game?


Dunno - let's go lay in bed, half naked, and still aroused when we're already uncomfortable with the level of intimacy.



But I like Aiden. *frowns more*
