Jake Takes Rebecca By Surprise - Jake's Return

What's a mom to do when her elementary school daughter starts matchmaking?
Rebecca’s budding suspicions about her daughter went into full bloom when Katie pulled herself out of the pool and announced she needed to call Jenna. Before Rebecca could even consider what to do next, Katie was gone and Jake was closing in on her like a shark.
He broke through the surface three feet away from the corner she’d retreated to, to catch her breath. He flashed her a killer smile, then glided closer, still smiling. “Alone at last.”
Her arms resting on the decking behind her, Rebecca realized she was trapped.
“Not that I’m complaining,” Jake said, still smiling. “I haven’t had that much fun in years.”
The almost speculative look in his eyes told Rebecca his mood might have improved during the game, but he hadn’t been any more oblivious to the amount of body contact they’d made during the game than she had. The knowledge sent a fresh current of awareness humming through her veins.
Jake leaned his head back and looked up at the stars. “God, this water feels great. Brings back a lot of memories.”
Rebecca sent him a droll look, all too aware she’d had nothing to do with those memories. Many a night she’d heard muffled giggles and quiet splashes in the dark pool after midnight, and had known it was Jake and his on again, off again girlfriend Mimi Modano. They’d come by when her mother was out, and Aunt Martha was asleep.
He caught her expression, and smiled a slow, knowing smile. “So tell me,” he said, as he edged closer and sent her pulse rate soaring. “Were you ever jealous of Mimi?”
“No. At the time I was disgusted.” And heartsick.
“She couldn’t keep her hands off of you.”
His smile turned fondly reminiscent. “I remember.”
“I believe that’s why you dated her.”
“We never dated, Becca, we just…”
“I know what you did with her, Jake.”
“Good. Then this won’t come as a surprise.” The next thing she knew, he’d braced his arms on either side of her and was kissing her. Gently, tenderly, with sweetness and finesse. No other part of their bodies touched as he made love to her mouth with an erotic thoroughness that rocked her senses. Rebecca considered lowering her arms from the decking, then realized if she did, she’d either have to hold onto Jake or go under.
Either way, she was sunk.
Long moments later, Jake pulled back, leaving Rebecca feeling dazed and disoriented. “I’ve missed you, Becca.”
