Happy T.G.I.F. everyone! Today it’s my pleasure to feature Dream Lover by Lynn Davis. Let’s learn a bit more about this book and then it’s on to a fabulous excerpt.
Kayla Johnson decided to focus on school and not get into a relationship. Although she made the grades her curiosity was peaked when Bill White joined her study group.
Kayla had no idea that she had caught Bill's eye and he is everything she hoped a lover would be. She is ready to move on with her life and Bill wonders if he can be a part of her future?
Will Kayla let go and just fall into his Bill's arms?
Kayla was both nervous and excited. She had waited for this day for a long time. So far, everything was perfect. She awoke almost two hours earlier than she normally would. It was 5 a.m., and she could not get back to sleep. She rolled over to her side and gazed out the bay window that overlooked her back yard. She could almost hear all the voices of her friends and family congratulating her for completing her degree in record time and with honors. She sighed with satisfaction. Today was graduation day. She decided to get up, turn on The Morning News show, and make sure the weather forecast had not changed. It was supposed to get at least ninety, and there hadn’t been any clouds in the sky yesterday. She hoped for the same today.
Grabbing the remote, she turned on the TV and headed for the kitchen to start the coffee. She smiled as she remembered the gift that her mother had given her a month an earlier to help her save money. She had been frequenting Starbucks about five times a day, getting her favorite drink, a tall Caramel Mocha Macchiato.
Her mother had gasped at Kayla’s admission, and three days later she bought her a coffee maker that had all the bells and whistle for making any coffee beverage Kayla could think of.
Kayla entered the kitchen and looked around. There were a few dishes in the sink from last night, and the floor could use a good sweeping. She decided to start the coffee maker and then clean the kitchen while she waited. Once her kitchen was clean, she returned to her room with a fresh cup of coffee in her hand. Now she needed to decide what to wear.
Looking at the clock it was only 5:45 a.m. Graduation did not start until 11 a.m. Her sister was coming at 9a.m. to do her hair and makeup. Kayla rolled her eyes. Alice was such a girl and made such a fuss when it came to special events. However, today was a special day and Kayla wanted to look special, especially when Bill saw her.
Kayla and Bill had been in the same study groups a few times, and she had to admit that she really liked him. He was very attractive. He seemed a bit serious most of the time, but when he smiled, it lit up his face. His hazel eyes were bright and intense. She could get lost in those eyes. She found herself watching him as he explained a case study or read. She just liked looking at him. Kayla felt her body heating up. She had noticed her body responding more and more to him. She wasn’t sure how she felt about it but, she didn’t seem to mind it this morning.
She sat on the bed and decided to read for about an hour. While in school, other than reading for class, she really didn’t have time to read. She sat her back against the headboard and pick up her Kindle. Scrolling through the carousel, frowning at the titles that scrolled by, she finally decided to read Absolution by Susannah Sandlin. She recalled reading Redemption the previous summer.
“Let’s see what the Vampires in Penton are up to now,” she said aloud.
Kayla looked up and gasped: it was 8:15 a.m. She shut down her Kindle and jumped up to take a shower. Her sister would arrive in 45 minutes and Kayla had to be dressed. She cursed under her breath. Her sister wasn’t one to run late, and if anything, she would be ten minutes early.
Looping her towel on the towel rack, she stepped under the hot, inviting spray. Turning her back to the shower, Kayla let the spray pound into her shoulders giving her a massage. After relaxing a few more minutes, she soaped her loofah and swiped it across her body. Relishing in the smell of Black Orchid and Juniper Oil, she went over her body again.
Tilting her head back, she let the water run over her forehead and hair. Pouring the thick silky cream of her Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Cream Shampoo into her hand, Kayla stepped out from under the spray and smoothed it over her head. Closing the lid, setting it back down, she lazily worked it into lather, letting her mind daydream while she did so.
She was getting excited about seeing Bill. She let her mind wander to his lips, his broad shoulders, his arms that were toned and muscular. She liked watching them flex and relax as he turned the pages of his books. His thighs looked strong, and from what she could tell when he wore jeans they were just as toned as his arms. She let her imagination take her to what she thought his chest and stomach looked like. She felt her knees grow a bit weak.
She chuckled and thought, Look at you girl, the man has not even given the slightest notion that he likes you and you are already fantasizing and daydreaming about him. Get a grip!
Tilting her head back again, she rinsed her hair, turning up the hot water. Pouring her companion Conditioner onto her hair, she lathered it up and let it set in her hair as she picked up her shaving gel and applied it to her under arms, legs and bikini area. Picking up the razor, she began to shave her legs, and then touched up her bikini area, smiling as she pictured Bill watching her. Satisfied with the newly shaven skin, she finished with her underarms. Rinsing the soapy hairs off her body, she remembered a time when her body was velvety smooth to a man’s touch.
Kayla liked that she had been so busy with school over the past three semesters that she had lost that extra 20 pounds, her tummy had become taut, and her legs were slender and shapely like they had been in high school. The study group members had decided to go to In-Shape City to set up a membership so they could go once a week, often as a group. That had helped her to start toning her arms. She liked the way she looked naked now. Her breasts were firm and perky, thank God. Her nipples were extremely sensitive, and she had caught Bill sneaking peeks a few times when she wore something that was thin enough to show her erect nipples through the material.
