My lips parted as I stared at him. There was no way I had heard any of that right.
He barely budged. I think maybe we should do dinner tonight, except skip dinner and go straight for the—Get, she said, shooing him out.
He turned, grinning at her as he walked backward, laughing as he bumped into the wall. She giggled as she whirled around, shaking her head.Gabe was . . . God, she didn’t even know what to say.Walking back to the bathroom, she worked at her hair until she didn’t look like she’d just had sex.

Part of her didn’t want to check it out, but she forced herself to do so. Tiny goosebumps rose all over her arms as she peered inside the bedroom.
