"Is your office far from here?"
"You can see it over there actually," he says, pointing to a spot over the trees.
I frown. "I don't see anything." I sway a little as I get up from my chair, and James hurries to steady me.
"Who gets wasted from two glasses of wine?" he says, amused.
"I am not wasted," I say. "I just have balance problems."
"Okay," he says, grabbing me by the waist with one arm, and taking my right hand with the other, pointing up. "There."
And now I do see it. The skyscraper. The top of it, at least.
"Which floor is your office?"
Instead of an answer I get a kiss on my neck. And then another one. I dig my fingers in his hair and turn my head, desperately searching his lips. I find them at the same time his hands slide under my top. I don't know if it's the wine or the chocolate, or my desperate need for him finally overpowering me, but I don't make any move to stop him as his hands go higher and higher, touching my breasts, my nipples. I don't want him to stop. I want him to touch me. All of me. Right here. Right now. He bites my lip and I moan deeply in his mouth.
It's only when one of his hands slides down and unzips my jeans that I come to my senses.
"Not here," I whisper, and for a frozen second, neither of us moves.
Then he grabs my hand. "Fuck, Serena. Let's go."
About the Author
Welcome! My name is Layla Hagen and I am a New Adult Contemporary Romance author.
I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later.
I write romantic stories and can't wait to share them with the world.
And I drink coffee. Lots of it.
Random facts about me and Lost in Us:
James was initially called Liam. . .because I had a crush on Liam Hemsworth. I got over it in the meantime (am now crushing on his brother Chris) :-D
I love chocolate as much as Serena does. Unfortunately I can’t get away with eating as much of it as she does.
I wrote a *certain* steamy scene on a piece of paper—on the back of which I then printed an official letter. Which I sent. Oh, the joy of being a writer ☺
“OH MY GOODNESS. This book was excellent. There were absolutely no reasons to give this novel less than five stars. I was not expecting this. Lost in Us is a New Adult Romance and it is COLLEEN HOOVER good! Yes, I said it - you could put this book up against the leading New Adult Romance authors and it would hold its own.” J.P.Grider, author of The Honor Trilogy
“Layla blew me away with her début novel Lost in Us. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book and by the end of the first chapter I was hooked. Funny, emotional and heart wrenching.” Shona Reid, reviewer at Fiona’s Book Review Blog
