The way she said it, the look in her eyes, the tone of her voice, it made him ask the one question he knew he shouldn’t. “Haven’t you ever wondered…?”
He turned to face her. “What it would be like between you and me if we ever… ” He trailed off, unsure how, or even if he wanted to finish that thought.
“If we ever what?” Amy held his gaze and he knew he’d have to answer her because she wouldn’t give up until he did.

Amy’s eyes fluttered closed as she leaned into him and wrapped her arms around his neck. That was all the permission he needed. Brett put his arms around her back and pulled her tight against his body. He deepened the kiss and nearly lost his mind when he heard her moan. Christ, he was kissing Amy. Amy! His best friend. He thought he should feel guilty about it as though it was wrong and inappropriate. But all he felt was her lithe body pressed against his, her lips working against his, her tongue dueling and twisting with his, and his raging desire for her. No, there was nothing wrong with what they were doing. It was good―too good. Any fears and doubts he had about it being awkward vanished the moment his lips touched hers.
“That,” he said, releasing her lips, but not her. “Have you ever wondered about that?”
