Bella’s eyes opened with a start.
“Cooper! What are you doing here? I didn’t hear anyone come in.” She glanced at the gate to confirm it was shut. It had creaked and clanged the entrance and exit of every pool-goer all afternoon and now, when she was sure she was alone, it had let in an interloper without a sound of warning.
He laughed. “Promise I wasn’t sneaking.”
She smiled at the mischievous twinkle in his brown eyes, admired the well toned muscles of his chest and arms, the stubble on his chin. He’d grown up, and it had only improved his looks. She wondered how the rest of him
“It’s been a long time,” she said.
“It has.” A pause. “You here with anyone?”
Bella shook her head. She knew what he was asking, and it wasn’t about the group of girlfriends sleeping off the heat in their air-conditioned room.

They both laughed, but when their eyes met again Cooper’s mouth crushed hers.
“We were good together, weren’t we?” he said as he released her lips.
“Oh, we were.” Bella brought her body close to his, felt those muscles firm against her breasts, his erection through his shorts. She rocked her hips, rubbing herself against his length, grinning as his eyes widened.
